Searle's 2011 Setup andAarrival

18 posts in this topic

For those of you that are able to make it to Searle's Raid this year here is a little information for you. The setup and arrival time for the event will be 12 noon Thursday March 3rd at the Fountain of Youth. Remember that you are on your own for food on Thursday. Please, on Thrusday, have your vehicle removed from the camping area as soon as you have unloaded and setup you equipment. There will be no overnight parking of vehicles in the camping area.

If you arrive on Friday during the day please unload as quickly as possible then move your car to the parking area; you can then return to setup your camp. If you arrive on Saturday you will need to park your car in the parking lot then unload your gear. Exceptions will be made for those with handicap access tags issued by a state DMV.

No vehicles will be allowed in camp on Saturday without the authorization of myself or another event organizer. Please see, or call me, if you have any questions about this. This will also stand for after the battle on Saturday night. If you need to break down your camp and leave before Sunday, again please, see an event organizer for help with this.

These rules are our attempt to keep the camping area as "period" as possible. We feel that this will enhance everyone's enjoyment while at the event. Cars will be allowed into camp after 6am on Sunday. If there are any other rules questions that you might have please refer to our website searlesbucs.com

I am the bigger pain in the ass that won't arrive until Friday night. I could only get a bit of time to leave work early. But I have to pick up Patrick in Orlando. I am hoping to Leave South Florida at 2:30, get to Orlando at 5:30 and make it to Auggie by 7:00.

Thanks for the encouraging words.

Doesn't alcohol repel water?

Got two bottles of homemade sangria to keep me dry!

Not to destroy any illusions of stepping back in time, but if you look south at about 3:39 p.m. Friday (if it goes off on time), an Atlas V is launching from the Cape's Complex 41. It's carrying the super secret but no so secret X-37 back up again.

It was kind of a last minute confirmation but I was able to fit this in the schedule. Looking forward to seeing everybody again. I can't make it up there until Saturday afternoon but we'll be there. I figured it was too late for setting up a camp so we decided to rough it at a hotel this time.

Just talked to number of pirates on Skype from the camp of the Mercury. Capt J was kind enough to fly me in (electronically speaking) as they drank rum and wine and ate oysters in the half shell. they are having way too much fun. There's even talk of walking down to the old Anti-pirate fort to raise the flag.
