Great week camping. 3 365s in the park!

It's been a while since I've posted but just wanted to let you know about our trip last week. Here in GA the weather has been kind of mild, so we decided on a little camping trip. Only about 7 miles away form home, but still NOT home. While we were there, a guy comes in and is looking at a few of the sites around us. I ask him what he is gonna try to put in there and he replied a "Sandpiper". Funny I said, I have one too.. He and his wife then decided to use the upper end of the campground as they would need 7 spaces. To make a long story short, when his brother and his brother-in-law pulled in, they were pulling a '12 Sandpiper 365SAQ(post mid year with new style nose) and a '13 Sierra 365SAQ. Another funny thing is that we all love within 10 miles of each other! With all of the gang they had, they had a total of 17 children with them between all 7 campers. We had 3 teens and 3 little ones between our gang. It was a great week despite the weather turning to rain the last couple of days.


Never had my phone with me while walking the dogs to get pics of the others up on the hill, but pretty neat to see that many of the same floor plan that close together, all unplanned.

Yep, I can see that! See red words above.

My fingers don't work right sometimes too!

Wish I were camping.

Love Fort Yargo! We live outside of Athens, and it's a great park, and not far away.

I agree totally. We live 7 miles from the park and LOVE IT.. We have kayaks that we take when the weather is warmer and the teens love being able to go and play all day.
