    River Country

    I can’t even express how sad I feel about all this and I’m sure Walt is too. The glory days of “camping” at Ft. Wilderness are over. It will eventually go the way of River Country or become very exclusive. The respite we all enjoyed from the craziness of the parks will be no more. The handwriting has been on the wall for a long time and with rates going up it’s obvious who they prefer their “campers” to be and it’s not tenters or trailers. Or the locals and their “phantom” weekend party reservations. Thanks, Disney. It’s been sweet for many generations of families, the deer, turkeys, armandillos, squirrels and birds but we all hear you loud and clear.
  3. This truck has a ton of power. I'm a little nervous about the diesel but it's under warranty for a long time. I was going to buy a brand new 6.2 gas dually but this ended up being the same price with a few more gadgets. Also, I knew this era truck would fit in my garage and get under my trailer without any mods. A new ford dually or any single wheel 350 would not have fit but these duallys are much lower.

    I agree - and you are right - everything that we valued about the Fort and WDW just seems to be slipping away. It feels like snowfall going downhill - faster and faster and faster -

    Post Your Pictures From the Fort Here!

    One more before we head over to the Fort for a few nights.

    What Jason said. What a hot mess....
  9. Rene and I are thinking about heading down to Charleston for the Thanksgiving weekend. James Island County Park looks like a nice place and has good reviews. There is also the private Oak Plantation campground which again has pretty good reviews but is about $10 more per night after the Good Sam discount. I have looked at the Mt. Pleasant KOA as well but I don't think they are open that week as the site won't take reservations and every other day of the month is open but I plan to call to confirm. Anybody have any experience with any of these or other campgrounds around Charleston?

    I think it could look pretty good if they would take the Prairie/Arts and Crafts style the drawing shows in the upper portions of the building and expand on it throughout the exterior. They would need to replace the Flying Nun hat with something more appropriate but that is no great loss. I think the real question is how accurate is the concept artwork is in relation to the actual buildings. If it is accurate then I think Disney missed a chance to build something unique. If it is just a promo or executive briefing artwork there could still be hope for something nice.

    SDMT queue removed

    My mom doesn't. My sister keeps saying she needs one. She barely answers her flip phone. We laugh because she will call, leave a message and then turn the phone off.

    Yes. I did.

    Probably not, but did you know the Swan and Dolphin do now?

    Oh do you think they will take my Marriott points?

    They have a fairly good sized one on the east coast of FL. Maybe you can do a combo Fort/Egg trip.

    You think the Flying Nun thing is bad, have you seen the concept art for the proposed facade improvement project on Pioneer Hall?

    The buildings are very generic, and what's with the flying nun thing? This comes nowhere close to the level of design/theming in pretty much every other WDW hotel - especially the deluxe level ones. Heck it doesn't even come close to comparing to the DVC cabins they just put in at WL. Agree with hoping this is just loose concept art and the final design will be much nicer and closer to the "wilderness" theme. Not thrilled about this happening either, but if I'm going to have to look at it when I take the golf cart to go get my take out fried chicken, I at least want it to be pretty.

    I second Blake's comment. We are going to make a trip to a Green Egg festival sometime soon.

    The people at both will hate it equally?

    Well I agree I once thought this would be a nice addition to the Fort but if this is the design its just horrible. How in the world does this tie the Fort and WL together.

    No mountain too steep now

    That's true the new diesel trucks are so capable it's amazing from what my old 7.3 and 6.0 did. Now I will say though our old 5.9 would always pull but it was a manual transmission and I don't miss that.

    No mountain too steep now

    350 or 450....both trucks are highly capable and overkill for all but the biggest trailers. Congrats on the new truck. The hardest part is not telling everyone you meet how well it pulls.

    This news makes me so sad. I think this property will have such a negative effect on the Fort. Sad because it’s all getting too expensive, sad because it’s all getting too crowded, sad because we have so many sweet family memories there...and I see the time to make more of those memories, slipping away. Just sad 🙁

    I agree. This design appears to suck. The original design was awesome.
  26. Got a hold of the bike barn, they said they did the activitieson the 4th and are going to find the pics!
  27. I couldn't find a nice 450, bit the 350 should do just fine. Can't wait to try it out
  28. Already sold it on CL for 900 bucks!
