Hitch 'N' Go  #082
Kissimmee, FL

August 2009


082�s final summer social campout, our �Square Dancer�s Grand Gathering 2009�, took place at Disney�s Ft. Wilderness Campground during the final days of August.

Eleven rigs gathered in Loop �Whispering Pine Way� for several days of relaxation and fun-filled activities. Several of the activities were pre-planned, with most of the couples participating, such as a day visiting Animal Kingdom; or a few times dining at different eating establishments.

Quite often, couples would go off on their own, or in small groups, to park hop, swim, bike, or sightsee around the complex. The weather remained gorgeous throughout with just a few late-in-the-day showers.

What fun it was to have several children/spouses and grandchildren of the 082 couples join us.

Tom Hartwig suggested to our membership several years ago to try Disney for our August social. He and I are thrilled our group has enjoyed our gatherings over the years. About half of the couples enjoyed their first time this year and it is especially rewarding to see them having a good time and telling us they did, that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

I am glad most of them had left for home or were soon ready to head out when our loop area decided to have a water-main break! Which, to Disney�s credit - and we would not have expected anything less! - was repaired instantly!

Our square dancing begins again in September - please check us out at
