    Phil a good place to meet would be Nahunta at one of the gas stations at 82 and 301, they'll be coming through there probably between 10 and 11am. Some groups will probably stop there for fuel so you'll get a chance to talk to them. Any of the ride leaders can advise on which group would be a good fit.

    I can do that, as it's about 25 miles south of where I live. I will confirm the meetup at the location as it gets closer to the date. Just to be sure...you are saying Friday am, between 10-11? This will be my 1st time doing something like this, so I am excited and nervous, lol

    Yes Friday. That’ s a ballpark ETA, probably closer to 11 but better to be early than late.

    In, on the Sertao. Riding up from Fort Myers Thursday. I'm in the process of making camping arrangements. I haven't seen any posts confirming anyone booked @ George L Smith. Is anyone seriously paying for 2 days (required by Georgia) , but only camping Friday? Or are some relying on the availability of walk up option?

    I am gonna attach a screen shot, check it out. If I am correct there's enough room for 6 people and I saw no mention of 2 day requirement.

    I tried booking as usual on ResearveAmerica, but at booking page I got a pop up that 2 days minimum was required. Soooo, I called and was told yes the whole state of Georgia requires a minimum 2 day booking to reserve online. Walk up apparently is the only option if you want only 1night.

    I prefer hammock camping where available and would share a site here with someone(s) if splitting the 2 day reservation costs is of any interest.....

    I would like to think there should be penty of spaces available. Did you happen to ask how booked they are? Anyone with experience have a suggestion ? I am thinking, just get a spot when we arrive and split it with whomever in the group wants in on it. I would gladly go in with you, but I really dont wanna pay for 2 days, when we can just get it for one, when we arrive. Whatcha think?
    I am gonna say, this is my 1st attempt at anything like this, so I have ZERO knowledge, lol.

    Sorry I didn't ask, but there were sites available. I've had good luck with walk up camsites, overall. If my target
    destination is full (or closed) I usually try for stealth/remote camp spots in the area. I've never been to this state park though. Sharing campsites is very common. I regularly share and you meet some great people that way!
    Your idea sounds good. Let's show up and see what's available. That makes it a real adventure :D
