All TIMES are CENTRAL TIME

 

  1. The motor coach departed this morning at 7:07 AM Eastern Time.  The campers have had a great time.  We send them home with a wealth of new experiences and perhaps some bug bites.  We will miss them.  They are tired and I expect a peaceful ride with some good napping.  We will do more reports periodically.
  2. 9:40 Central Time - The motorcoach was just getting into Georgia.
  3. 12:58 Central Time - MM (Mile Marker) @ 24 on I-20 in Georgia.  The group has had lunch and are rolling again heading towards Covington, LA.  ETA Covington 8:20ish if everything works out well.  ETA BTR is 1 hour and 15 minutes later.
  4. 2:06  MM166 I-20 ALABAMA ( near Pell City).  The motorcoach will need a fill up and a change of drivers...  the 2 stops will require about 45 minutes making the ETA Covington about 8:20.  ETA BTR is 1 hour and 15 minutes later.
  5. 5:05 Central Time ETA Covington 8:20ish still.  The Motorcoach is passing through Meridian MS and is soon to change drivers.
  6. 6:30 Central Time.  ETA Covington 8:00ish...   Finished changing drivers and filling up.  Looking good!  ETA BTR is 1 hour and 15 minutes later.

COMING TO CAMP: FOR THE JUNE & MAIN SESSIONS:

        BATON ROUGE:  The plan is to leave from Baton Rouge by approximately 7:30 PM the day before camp begins.  Be a half hour early.  We will meet at the same location as last year, in the area in front of the Subway 225-926-8855 (Used to be Cici's Pizza), 5220 Corporate Blvd in the Esplanade Shopping Center at the corner of Corporate and College.  The motor Coach should be near the back.

 

        MANDEVILLE/COVINGTON:  We will stop in Mandeville at about 8:45 PM at the Holiday Square Shopping Center at I-12 and 190.

 

        OTHER STOPS:  If there are campers to board in another city along the way, we might be able to arrange that (You must contact us with a specific easy-on/easy-off exit and fool-proof instructions).  The campers will stop for breakfast before arriving at camp the morning of opening day, probably around 8:30 AM.

 

CLOSING DAY - RETURNING HOME - Motor coach leaves camp for Louisiana at approx 7:30 AM

 

We find these motor coaches are somewhat unpredictable due to traffic, weather, meals, road construction, etc.  The motor coaches can run later than the estimates.   On departure day we put adjusted arrival time information here on this website (See red letter sample below) to make your pick-up easier.

 

ARRIVE HOME in COVINGTON/MANDEVILLE AT THE SAME  LOCATION AS DEPARTURE - HOLIDAY SQUARE SHOPPING CENTER AT APPROXIMATELY 8:00 PM - Again, see this webpage for regular updates on arrival times.

 

ARRIVE HOME in BATON ROUGE AT THE SAME SUBWAY 225-926-8855 (used to be CiCi's Pizza, 5260 Corporate Blvd. (225) 201-0611 (in the Esplanade Mall) near the corner of Corporate Blvd & College.)  PARKING LOT APPROXIMATELY 9:15 PM

 

Rules are on the BUS to CAMP Page.

Luggage information is on the BUS to CAMP Page.

 

Route: Rout may vary between going through Birmingham, Al or Montgomery, AL depending on riders' needs.  This map only shows the potential Birmingham route.
