    Well that's interesting... The three you can see are hosted in different places than all the rest.

    Is everybody having trouble with the pictures? I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this, and rehosting the pictures would be a pretty big pain. :(

    Probably my lack of IT skills but I also only see 3 pix.

    Also, unfortunately, since Photobucket got stupid with their pricing and really messed up their interface, a lot of folks have dumped them (including me), and have had trouble finding a similar alternative for posting pictures. It is much harder now.

    That is a shame, always looked forward to reports.

    Do whatever you want.

    Everyone else does.

    That stuff on the website that says travel trailers and motorhomes can't be accommodated on the tent sites is just a typo apparently.

    Pro tip- when you get to the Fort, go into the office to check-in instead of using the check-in lanes.  That way, the CM will have no idea what type of trailer you have, and you can sneak anything in. Bring your dog too!  You could also try on-line check-in.  If it works (which is rare), they will text you your site number, and you can proceed directly to your site without being questioned by the staff about all these silly rules they have.

    You are saying the rules are just suggestions?   


  4. A lot depends on what you want. If you are going to setup  chairs, have music, etc. you probably will need to stay in your site or pay the mouse. How ever you can do a "hit and run" almost anywhere, just show up, and do it. As you can see by my profile picture weddings are what I do and have done 100s, many time we just show up at a nice spot and get it done. I once did one at a major league baseball game, we just stepped out in the aisle between innings and were done before the game started again. Got a big ovation when the crowd figured out what we were doing.

    About $35 a day.  So, roughly $100 for a three day rental, or around $250 for a week.

    The last couple of times I've done it, I started thinking about whether the hassle is worth it- because I'm typically only renting for 3-4 days.

    There is also a lot of texting and/or phone calls to confirm pick up and drop off times. I especially don't like having to spend that hour plus on my check out day running the cart back to the drop off location.

    The other thing to consider is if there's a problem with the cart, there's no easy fix for that.

    It was great when Kenny was allowed to deliver the carts directly to your site, but the Fort management has put and end to that.

    It looks like unless you are staying at least a week, or more, probably not worth the hassle.   Thanks

    You, the customer, do.

    You drive to the meeting location where they have the cart on a trailer (hopefully).  You drive the trailer to the Fort, drop off the cart, and then bring the trailer back.  On the day you return it, you go and get the trailer and reverse the process.

    The meeting location is about a 15 minute drive from the Fort.  So, it's 30 minutes there and back, times two, plus the time to load and unload the golf cart.  The reason I said hopefully the cart will be on the trailer when you get there is that they schedule the pick-ups pretty closely, and if the guy in front of you is late for his appointment or dawdles, you will be waiting for the trailer.

    That doesn't sound too magical. How much do you save?

    On this short of notice, I'm not sure if Kenny at Tee Time, can help you, but give him a call and find out:  407-516-4571.

    Renting from Tee Time will require you to travel off property to pick up and return the cart.  The round-trip is about an hour on the day you pick up, and again on the day you return.  That's an inconvenience for sure, but it doesn't sound like you have any better options.

    Curious, how does this work? Who hauls it back and forth? etc.       Thanks

    Before going over to the Fort, call ahead to see if your cart is ready.  Sometimes they are ready in the late morning and sometimes not until 1:00 pm.  If not ready until later, consider going over early and have a nice breakfast at the Trail's End and/or check out the barn, horses, and other animals at TCD ranch area.  Have fun.

    Good advice about the golf carts, sometimes the golf cart pick up experience can be less than magical.
