Until the webmasters at Active Rain can block those scoundrels, it was suggested that we block 'non-member comments' for the time being - and this should put a stop to the scammers for now. (5 comments)

For most of todays cars - you can get there and back on less than a tank of gas.
Don't want to drive so far? How about Aiken State Park. Bring the tent (0 comments)
