1st Camping Trip - Mickey here we come !!

Sooo excited (and alittle nervous) about our first camping trip (anywhere) at the Fort from May 27-June 1! Bought a Jayco TT this past December but haven't had a chance to take it out due to unusually cold / wet weather for NW GA / conflicts with hubby's schedule (long distance truck driver). It will be me, hubby, DD16 (she will be turning 17 on that Thursday at HS) and DS8 (his first time at Disney World) and doggie (yay for no vet boarding cost) !!!

uugh having a terrible time getting hold of the golf cart guy (Kenny)! I managed to get him on the phone 2 days ago to ask about prices, but haven't been able to get him since to check for availability and reserve one! I filled out and submitted the form on his website but haven't gotten a confirmation or any type of correspondence on that either!

so .... yesterday was a very productive day for trip prep ..... golf cart reserved, campground reserved at the GA/FL line for Sunday night (just GOTTA break up that 10+ hour trip !). Still seems like there is TONS still to do ... looking for a good small propane grill (we just don't have the patience for charcoal) and a truck bed bike rack, don't EVEN get me started on the groceries and summer clothes I still need to get! I am an organizing freak so my list keeps GROWING, and I am paranoid I'm going to forget something really important, although I try to keep in mind that they do have stores down in Orlando !!
