Seeing as Camp David has now taken on new importance for President Bush [NYTimes link], now might be a fun time to take a tour (sort-of) of the highly secretive compound. Or perhaps you would like a more detailed history of the Presidential retreat, or even some personal stories as told by people "in the know." (Though for the life of me I can't find more info on the person who developed these sites.)

Googling I found: Camp David Crew (thru 65), Oct 1998, Virginia Beach VA. Bill King, 1823 GA Hwy 1118, Cairo GA 31728; 912-377-1940;

Thanks Carol. As soon as I posted the link I thought, "You know, I bet if I go to the root page for these sites, then did a Google search for the person's name and 'Camp David,' I could find something..."

Which of course I (and you) did. I'm just going to write that little bit of mental blockage from earlier up as Monday morning cobwebs.

why did i think that Camp David would be more plush? it looks like my grandma's house.

(minus the stables and shooting range.)

It's exactly the kind of "resort" that was built 3 generations ago; there are thousands like it throughout the region, especially notoriously in the Poconos and Adirondacks. It hasn't been upgraded to something more plush and modern, I suspect, because the demands of today's Presidency make its rustic simplicity all the more attractive.
