Big Mo Drive In

Meeting Place: Sonic, North Augusta, SC – map
Time: 6:00PM at the Sonic located off Exit 5 of I-20, north on US25.

We will leave the Sonic at 6:15, so if you plan to get something to eat, either come early or take it out and eat while we are in Line to get in. The route to the Drive-in is the old, tried and true, back roads drive that we have done before. You can leave the drive-in and go back home by going down Hwy 1 back to I-20 at any time you want. If you stay for both movies, you will get home around 1 or 2 AM, so it will be up to each car and family when you have enough fun for one night. 🙂

The movies at the drive-in are: theater #1; Indiana Jones and Iron Man, which I predict to be the first to fill up. At theater #2; What Happens In Vegas and Made of Honor, which is there for those who can’t get into theater #1 🙂 This why I want to leave early, the drive-in opens at 7PM and the movies start at 8:45 so we will have plenty of time to eat and talk before the movie. Admission is 6 dollars a person, cash only. Bring plenty of bug spray, maybe some chairs as it is cooler outside of the cars (might want to bring a sweater too) and maybe bring an FM radio for the movie sound if you sit outside your car to save the Miata’s battery.

Canoeing the Black Waters of the Edisto – Take 2

Saturday, May 17

Time: After Breakfast – about 9 a.m.

This event is tentative based on hearing back from the Rangers about canoe availability. Join us for breakfast and we’ll know more then.

We’ll head out to at Aiken State Park for a leisurely and enchanting paddle along the recently improved canoe trail. See cypress trees, endangered pitcher plants, water snakes, hawks, cranes and maybe a ‘gator. All equipment provided including life vest. Wear comfortable shoes you don’t mind getting a little damp or muddy.

There are 8 canoes and 2 kayaks for rent. Figure 3 adults/canoe gives a max of 26 people.

Cost: as of 01/07, $12 to rent a canoe, paddle and life jacket, which includes the transport charge to get you back to your Miata, plus $2/adult. Have some $1s available to stuff in the entry fee envelope. You can write a check for canoe rental.
