Camp Dixie for Boys...

This is the cabin that Dick stayed in after he became a more senior member of the camp staff. Note the shelf on the R that he built as his closet, and he even wired the cabin for an overhead light. That was big stuff back then. And no bunk beds for him and his roommate, unlike...
...the original cabin he lived in. There were multiple bunks in these lush accommodations, and the only lights were outside in the covered walkways (it rained a lot, so these walkways went almost everywhere from one building to another).
Say hi to the tall camper! If he lifted his left arm, he would be pointing to that first cabin shown above. Not a bad view for a teenage boy from flat Florida.
Now y'all can see where and when he got his love for the beautiful No. Georgia mountains. Paradise for sure. That love continues, and has been passed on to our children. Life is good!

I think a family field trip is in order! I would really love to see Camp Dixie since its lore is such a part of our family. Then maybe dinner at the new LaPrade's...

I was about to say the same thing as Harley! I've been to LaPrade's twice in the last year, both time on two wheels. Didn't eat, but did rehydrate. They don't have the family style dinner anymore, all individual tables, but it's still neat.
