Blue Roof Camp

Blue Roof Camp Dad built the Camp in 1955, and we're now sharing it. I hope this page will let us share pictures and thoughts about it.

This would be a fun rig for a small boat!

HOW COOL IS THIS?? 🚗🚤

Right here in Florida! An antique car / boat show! Last year from in Mt. Dora, just north of Orlando.

Some good points. (here's highlights)
Prepare a formal document that lays out your extended family's plan.
Set rules for the upkeep of the property, including the opening and closing of the house each season as well as how repairs are decided upon and handled.
Establish clear guidelines on routine matters as food, cleanliness, and the number of guests allowed.
Include an opt-out plan.
Create an online calendar that members can easily consult.

"Just a heads up. The 3 Roberts girls are planning on making the family reunion in Bridgeton for the 4th of July. Hoping to see everyone there. Pass the word. I don't have everyone on Facebook." Cyndi Campbell just passed this along. I don't know how many people here will be interested, but thought it might be a good venue.

Repairs on the floor are progressing. Liz suggests the cheapest replacement walling is paneling. I've hated the panel that encloses Dad's closet since it went in. I would like the camp to maintain the same feel as it did when we were there, and wonder at $25 a sheet for ugly paneling, how much more expensive pine boards would be. I figure Mother and Dad wouldn't have used them if they weren't fairly cheap (of course, paneling may not have been available at the time). Liz is getting estimates of how much more it would cost. I figure it's only a few yards, and I'd be happy to pay more to maintain the right feel to the camp- to make it match (as the closet paneling did not.) What does everyone else think?

I figure pine boards would last as long as the camp, but paneling will start to buckle and not hold up as well- although it might last until we're dead. On the other hand, I'm sure we thought that the sills would stay dry on the foundations they were built on. I would just rather go for sturdy than cheapest.

This is in Grandmother's "playpen", I assume from the coats we must have been opening or closing camp. Chuck Murray, in Charley's lap, Katherine Richards, Mom, Marcy in Grandmother's lap, Dad. Correct me if I've got them wrong.

It occurs to me that this might be a good place to share pictures, and maybe get them tagged. Sometimes I can recognize someone by their posture, even the back of their heads, but sometimes not. At very least we can share pictures and memories here. Sadly not many of the people who could probably tag these are on facebook.

Paul has got the new windows into the little cabin- I expect by the time we see it, they'll be painted and look all one color, and we'll shortly forget that it wasn't always like that!

Some repairs will be needed- the (is it sill or joist?) bottom wood has gotten wet and rotted. Liz is getting estimates for the repairs.

We haven't had any new pictures from 2015, did anyone take any?

The facebook is concerned that we're down as being in Allens Mills, not Farmington. Do we care?

Entirely too much time on the computers. We had some excuse, I was doing a podcast, Willow had a gaming session, and Kat finished a novel she's been working on for months. ( hmm pictures didn't load. Try again later)

Wonderful few days at camp. Got up July 2nd, had to leave Saturday the 5th. Kitty came up the 3rd. Went to Pril's Party the 4th. Swam a lot. Had some nice thunderstorms. The dock was finished, well done Liz!

We Taylors are thinking of spending a few days at camp for the fourth of July. Anyone else going to be up there then?

This seemed the easiest way to stay in touch. I'm sure everyone will let me know if it's not. For example- I don't think Trish and Jay are on facebook.
