Fellowship, Fun, and Entertainment
Not all of our time was devoted to earnest wildlife observations and photography. There was plenty of fellowship and shoot'n the breeze. Most of us traveled in our automobiles, but some also brought bikes. Some of us overnighted in motels and others camped out.
This year we added some competitions. A few "rubber" snakes were hidden along cruising roads. Prizes were awarded for finding them. There was also a competition for the best herping hat, best song parody, Miss Hellhole 2007, and more. Prizes were awarded Saturday night.
Of course, there was Jeff's solo concert under a low country moon as the grand finale. This year, Jeff out did himself performing many requested songs.
