Did you check to see if there's an Annapolis WalMart? Aren't all WalMarts RV-friendly? At least they used to allow them to park in the lots overnight.

If temp work is available I would schedule the boat show into my southbound schedule next year.

Ideas?
I was looking at the online version of spinsheet yesterday and saw an ad for workers at the show (actually both the sail and boat shoW). Might be worth pursuing if you have the time.

Luck!

You'll probably need some crew for that so you'll be free to poke around the lazerettes and what not.

I'll have to take a vacation day but I can handle the helm for you. ;-)

There is no Wal-Mart convenient to Annapolis. I believe that the open arms greeting to RVs at Wal-Mart has gotten a bit rough in the last couple of years at least at some stores.

There is a Sam's Club near the Annapolis Mall that might ignore you parking in the lot for a few days but getting to the Boat Show would be problematic.

The Eastport Elementary School PTA provides parking for the Boat Show every year and I know I have seen RVs in there. Call ahead and see if you can make arrangements. Reasonable walking distance to the Show and to many restaurants from there so you can park it and not move again until you are ready to leave.

sail fast and eat well, dave

My sailing buddy and I are planning on going Sat. It's a short drive from So. Md. I KNOW I'll "SEE" some of you, I just won't know it! Enjoy all!

Before you buy that Outbound 52 - look at my Taswell 58 AS listed by David Walters Yachts at the Walzak dock just out side the show towards the yacht club. You can get it for less money, its a better built boat, faster, and ocean proven + cruise equipped with watermaker, full electronics, Northern Lights genset, Avon raft, etc.,etc. Overall winner of Caribbean 1500 and Atlantic Cup.Sorry for the self promotion.

We'll be there. We go on Thursdays when it's less crowded (I used to get dizzy and sometimes pass out when in overcrowded situations as a child, although I've grown out of that I'm still real uncomfortable in large crowds).

Thinking about going by boat although it would be a 1 man operation since I have to meet my wife there (She could only get a half a day off). Not being familiar with Annapolis harbor I'll probably wimp out and drive down.

We are looking forward to seeing Mark and Patti Gonsalves of Cruiseabaco.com, we took ASA sailing courses from Capt. Mark a couple years ago in Abaco. It was the best vacation I ever had.

Regardless we have Friday off as well so we'll probably have driving rains, earthquakes, locusts and sporatic volcanoes until Monday, but if not we can make it a nice sailing weekend of it.

That's great advice - I'll call the PTA. Thanks for the tip!

As for the WalMarts, I'm told that they are indeed less friendly than they once were. He (the RV owner) says if WalMart can't get you to leave they'll make lots of noise with parking lot cleaning machines, etc. They'll swarm you all night, hoping you'll move on (he's more stubborn than I am). Pretty funny that they're that passive-aggressive lol.
