Today we open the park to the public from 10:00 am – 11:00 pm,  they can view the trailers and talk to you, the owners.  Open your door to welcome visitors, if you want to be left alone just close your door and lock it. A good part of today is for you to enjoy whatever way you would like.  The day will end with a few closing comments and some very special entertainment.

Sunday August 19, 2018

WOW what an event,.  Did everyone have fun?  Today we expect many of you will have to pack up their trailers and head home.  Thank you all for coming,   

 

For those not in a rush to head home or onto other destinations you are welcome to stay a day or two longer.  There are no events planned but when has that stopped the fun.  Vendors will be packing up their displays, crews will be taking down the stages and sound equipment,  the showers and extra portable toilets will be moved out and you will have to either cook your own meals or go offsite to a local restaurant. To me this sounds just like camping.  Just remember we all have to leave the park by Tuesday August 21, 2018

Boondocking

Description:  Want to do more off-grid camping but have questions? Why not join us a an informative presentation with two-time Oliver owners and boondocking experts, Steve and Tali Landrum of Tupelo, Mississippi, USA. The Landrums purchased their first Oliver in 2008, logging tens of thousands of miles and countless hours camping in state and federal parks and BLM land from Florida to Alaska. By 2013, the Landrums had outgrown their single axle Ollie and upgraded to the very first tandem axle Oliver Legacy Elite II in 2014. They have been happily crisscrossing the country ever since and are looking forward to sharing their experiences and hard-won boondocking knowledge with you during their formal Boondocking presentation. If you really want to get away from it all, plan to take part in this workshop.

Presented by: Steve and Tali Landrum of Tupelo, Mississippi, USA.


Photography Workshop

Description:  This workshop is designed for those with adjustable cameras (advanced Point & Shoot or DSLRs) that are interesting in gaining more control over your camera than the program or automatic modes provide.

Presented by: Jon Vermilye
