An old water pump. This was how we got water from the farm up on the "Adams farm" when we were enjoying time at the lake with the Cunningham Clan. There was no running water on either site but it didn't feel like "roughing it." I miss the experiences at the cabins with family. Everything felt normal and sane while we were there.

Phone Booth - Would call the phone @ The Pantry just to see who would answer...LOL

I really wanted one of these.... not sure why since I hated talking on the phone!

Western Electric Trimline Phone ad. I remember when these were brand new, push button not rotary :-)

Rotary phones! I remember when I got my first phone in my bedroom as a teenager. I was so lucky!

    No, I live in PA....and my neighbors went to that one....and I want to go....but I would need a semi!

    I grew up in Alabama and as an adult migrated to Georgia and haven't been on that yet! But you are right....you would need to drag a trailer for the stuff you decided you needed! Now that I have moved to a condo...I can no longer indulge in that bad habit! Or at least that is what my hubby calls it. I have no room for the stuff i already had...I mean minimal space...sigh.

    I have done it but call it the Longest and the hottest flea market in August 100 degrees

  • Beth Towers

    Whoa! Nelly! No thanks!

  • Tina Burdette

    I don't know that I would like that either....my neighbors said take plenty of water, hand sanitizer, your own toiletries and enjoy the woods.....with that said, I will stay in my area!!!!
