     The drive over to Georgia was easy Interstate and a nice rural road.  We met Dave and Eileen from Florida at park registration, exchanged a few stories in the parking lot, and the rally had officially begun.

     Rangers at visitor center gave an account of the damage to the park from the recent tornado outbreak. We have all focused on the catastrophic loss of lives in Tuscaloosa and Joplin while stories of the remaining storms reach us in fits and starts.  Alone, the storm that raked the Pine Mountain would have made headlines.  Fortunately, no human casualties.  During the Rally we drove past swaths of trees mowed down and saw the damage in nearby Warm Springs.  

     Later, Shannon and Ernie from nearby Columbus relocated to join the other silver trailers and we visited into the night --A night featuring a brilliant salmon salad by Chef Ernie.
