Hi Rich, I usually put in at Old Salem or that gated community before you get to Publix on the right. I don't remember the name of it right
now but they have a launch ramp that used to be open to the public but the last time I was there there was a members only sign up. I launched anyway and talked to the manager of the place and he said to come by anytime. I think the sixpack of homebrew I gave him bought me a membership. I did try to launch from parks mill once but after driving all the way out there they were closed for the season. When it warms up a bit you're welcome to join me for a sail.
I'm just of I-20 at the Almon Rd exit, I have a huge kegerator that I just got going and a front porch that is just right for drinking and brewing beer. It may be a good central location to meet up with the others in the area and share a few, again when it warms up.
