I'll shoot a message out this evening to everyone. I am starting a new job in July or August so that might make it hard (but not impossible) for me to get a long weekend off. As long as there is coverage available, I can do it.
Mike D's pool party is in July and we don't want to interfere with that. I can tell you that the lake water up there is mountain-spring fed and is always on the cool side...very refreshing on a super hot day and downright damn cold. That being said, my daughters and their friends have skinnydipped in November...something my nips would never survive in that water LOL.
The only time that is probably not good is January/early Feb. We went for New Years' one year and got stranded up there for 3-4 days because of a little snow/ice on the mountain roads in spots that are shaded and don't thaw quickly.
So lemme get potential dates and we'll go from there.
That beach mansion sounds amazing too....I would totally be down for that as well. Why not both?
Well, this is kinda awkward, but at least for right now, my house is off the table. my youngest daughter had 4 friends up last week and there was a noise complaint to the Power Company that leases the lake. A few weeks ago my nephew had friends up and the sheriff was called for noise. Over the years we have had some major throwdowns up there...so I'm a bit puzzled as to why all of a sudden us intermittently having people up is a big deal. All this is coming from the woman next door who has lived there for 15 years, through some rather wild and raucuous weekends that we've had. Until I get a better feel for what exactly is going on, I'm afraid to pursue the option. I'm really sorry.
BUT.....I looked at a rental yesterday that I might move into on Lake Oconee that has 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, dock....so if I get approved I will be moving in on July 1 and it WILL be party central HQ !!!!! Fingers crossed!
I'm down for something that doesn't require me to get a passport. I really need to get one but don't have time to. Is this plan for 2014 or 2015? This year I couldn't do it but 2015 is definitely possible.
