Jeanne and I have decided to bring our RV. Can't leave our pup at home by herself, we took her to Sturgis last year and she did fine. Anyone know of a close by RV park?

There is a very nice campground, not crowded mostly pull through sites located just south of Galax. Here's the website. You don't have to prepay for a reservation. It's a quiet place, not crowded, well maintained with laundry and bath facilities.

Made reservation at the coolbreeze campground, about a third less cost of KOA. See everyone in September!

Well, it looks like I'm officially out for this years run. Been waiting for results from our follow up visit this morning and I will have to take daily care of stuff here for a while longer. Wife is healing from her last bout but it is going slower than expected. We don't even have another follow up for a couple of weeks. I'll miss seeing the group and set my sights on next year.

I might add, we have one extra bed if someone needs a place before or after, and plenty of room to park a trailer. We are about 1 hour from the motel 6
