    I'm terrible at trip reports, but here are some pictures of various things I saw around the Fort. Some are very old news by now, but here they are:

    They are using the site hookups for irrigation. The landscaping guy came around my site every couple of days to turn on the misters. Lucky for him I didn't block that off with my screen walls.

    These are great! We were there around the same time (December 3rd to 12) so we saw many of the decorations in your photos!

    We were in the spot right next to the people with the orange tree (obviously we weren't there yet since the spot is empty ~grin~) I'm so glad you got a picture because 2 days before we left, we went to take a picture of the orange trees and they had already packed them up!

    Thank you for posting these! We were at the Fort the same time as you, and I recognized your T@b from your avatar. Looped past a couple of times hoping to meet you, but you weren't around. I enjoy meeting Fiends! Maybe next trip...

    Great pictures Carol! Were you in the 1500 loop? It looks like it was a tighter fit for all your stuff than when we saw you in 900.

    Yep I was in 1500 and yes it was a bit tighter. Granted my awning setup is 20x20 regardless of where I set it up, but less concrete and some dropoff on the sides made less of that 20x20 useable.

    Carol,

    I'm looking for a smaller tent for when my dd and I go camping alone. I saw you had one in your pics. Do you feel it is big enough for 2 adults and their stuff or would it be a tight fit. The tent you have is one of my contenders to purchase.

    Oh absolutely!! I believe it is 10x13 and is tall enough to stand in.

    Carol I saw your set up and was impressed with how neat you were able to keep things! We had 6 in our group and it never looked so neat!!!! We didn't end up doing any Mousefest things since I was sick from pretty much the time I got there until we left.... I did spot you on the 13th at the breakfast and said a brief hello as I flew by with my crew...looks like ya'll had a good time! I did get the flag I asked you about at the Meadows! Thanks!!!
