2007 Southeast Fall Rally in Mobile, AL
« on: July 16, 2007, 01:47:04 PM »
I'm really late getting this set up this year, but here it is!

DATES:         10/28/07 - 11/1/07
LOCATION:  MOBILE, AL at Wales West Train & Garden Lovers RV Resort
                                        www.waleswest.com   1-888-569-5337

Make your reservations now - feel free to come early and stay late!  Wales West should be a fun place - they have an operational steam railroad right on the premises! See the website for more info.

Mention that you are with the Brinck group (they don't seem to have the RV Forum connection on their records yet) so they can site you near us.

We will do the usual forum rally things - socialize a lot and eat too much!  Nancy & I will do a dinner one night and  the guys will no doubt cook breakfast for the girls one morning. More info later.

Gary,

Looks like a niice place.  Have a great time.  Our daughter got her Phd last year from UGA and no longer lives in the south, so we don't expect to get down in that area very much any more.  We are thinking of doing a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway this fall and that will be our farthest east and south for the year.

I forgot to mention that the it's a Passport America park. We probably won't have enough people this time to qualify for the rally rate, so the passport rate can be used (except for weekend nights).

We're looking at arranging our travels to make the rally.  We'll let you know but I've got it on the calendar.

As for PA, according to their listing: P.A. discount is valid for 2 nights, Sunday through Thursday. P.A. discount is not valid for groups or rallies.

How many do we need for the group rate?

Gary, 

Maybe I shouldn't declare too early and risk driving other potential attendees away,  ;D :D ;D  but since You, Ned and of course Lorna and Nancy top the list of folks I've wanted to meet since joining the forum, I'm giving it some serious consideration.  I'll discuss it with my navigator and start making plans.  I'll follow this thread closely and hope to see many more familiar and NEW names agree to join in.  Thanks for the invite,  lou

Hope you and Lorna can work it in - would be great to see you again.

I think we need 10 rigs to get a group rate - she asked if we would have 10 and I said no and did not pursue it further. I knew some of our regulars (e.g. the Derways and the Reavis's) won't be able to make, so figured it would be a small rally this year. But who knows?

The Passport rate is probably a better deal than the group rate, even though it is just two nights. Two nights on PA and two more at the Good Sam rate is a decent deal - works out to a 30% discount for 4 nights.  Group rate is probably similar to Good Sam or maybe a bit better, though I didn't inquire.

Hi Gary,

   We would like to join you in the little rally at Waleswest.

I'll make reservations tomorrow (Thursday) via their 888 #. Other than being with the Brinks group, are there any other instructions you can feed me.

I know where it is. We are coming from Citrus County FL.

Even though it is tempting fate, I have made reservations to attend.  After 6-7 years of things not working out, maybe this is the year.  I have plenty of room for anyone who wants to stop on their way to the rally.  One 15amp, 1 30amp, and 1 50amp
available, plus water and sewer.

There are no quiet hours.  You would be far enough away from the house that I would never hear you.   In fact, I cannot hear my noisy generator at the house. :)

Looks like we will have a pretty good turnout. Seven rigs have reservations (per message from the campground the a.m.). We may even qualify for the rally rate, though frankly using Passport America is probably a better deal for those who have it (can't get the rally rate AND also use PA or other discounts). I'll have to find out what the price difference is.

Carson,
At the campground they are calling us "the internet group" or "the Brinck party" - for some reason that can't seem to get a handle on "RVForum".

We reserved for a week and they have a weekly rate, 1 day free.  It's close to 2 days of PA and 5 of GS in cost.

I called Wales West to ask them about campfire rings.  They don't have any.  But will allow portable ones if they have legs.  We have a campfire in a can.  Does anyone else have a portable campfire pit?  Is there anyone interested in having a small campfire?

Just a thought

I have the inside, stainless steel tub from my old washer/dryer that I carry with me. Not as large as the regular tubs, but does an admirable job. Besides, this is a mini-rally, isn't it? :D

We also carry our propane fireplace everywhere we go and I was going to use that.  We LIKE campfires and I usually only schedule rallies at places that have fire rings, but Wales West sounded like such a neat place I made an exception. Glad to hear we will have at least two bring-your-own fire pits.

Now, can anybody bring some wood as well???  Ya never know about firewood availability locally, so all contributions will be welcome.

[/size]

I'm glad you did.  It does sound like a really neat place.  I enjoy a campfire a lot.  But it's something one can do without for a few days for framily.  Because of the Ash Borer Beetle, we can not take wood out Michigan.  So we will try to gather some along the way.

Great, Jim. I know you probably can't carry a several day supply, but every bit helps.

By the way, everybody, as hosts Nancy & I always prepare a dinner one night. Sort of a tradition with us.  Probably Monday evening, though I haven't checked with the boss yet on menu or timing. We will provide the main meal and perhaps a few of you could provide a salad and dessert for everybody. Bring your own drinks, place settings, etc.

Another tradition at the Southeast Rally is that the men cook breakfast one morning. Maybe Tuesday the 30th. We will need a bunch of eggs, bacon and sausage and some volunteer cooks. Two of my regular cooks, Dave Reavis and Dave Derway, won't be attending this time, so I hope a few of you have some rudimentary camp cooking skills. Ray Baginski is master of the scrambled eggs and I usually do pancakes, but we need some fry cooks for the bacon and sausage and some helpers to fetch and carry. Probably need an additional grill and an electric skillet or griddle too.

Then there will be the usual happy hour(s) every day around 4 pm, giving everybody their chance to display their latest hors d'oeuvre concoctions. More on this stuff when I have a chance.

Joel, have you used that new grill yet?  If so, how do you like it.  It looks to be exactly right for carrying in the MH.

Once.  OK.  Not as good as the Weber Baby Q but much easier to carry.

Dang, too far for an easy couple days off for us.  Maybe next time a little closer in for us working folk.

Your problem, Bill, is that south Florida is too far from everywhere else in the USA Had the same problem when we lived in Boca Raton (even further south). Takes a full day just to drive out of Florida when heading north and two days if headed west. I'd have to hold a rally at my place in Ocala to be conveniently close for you!  ;)  We did have one at Suwanee Hideaway near Old Town a couple years ago, but that's a long haul south for everybody else.

A question for Gary aka RVroamer

Have you a feel for the number of attendees so far. The interest seems to be great.

With 1533 views so far, maybe we can set a 'Guinness record". :)

And Maybe: Onaquest??

Gary, I'm sorry but I probably will NOT be able to make it.  It's definitely my loss as it seems to be firming up nicely with a lot of great folks.  I've just had some very large VET bills as my traveling companion (see attached) managed to get himself bitten by a copperhead snake.   He's recovering nicely and I'll be trying to make the next rally reachable from North Carolina.

JJ,

Funny you mentioned that  because Pat wondered if we could visit before the rally and then travel together. :) Guess I'm going to have to leave a few days earlier. We're stopping at Chet's, then visit our son in VA, then I hope to see a guy in the Roanoke Valley that rides the C50T. Would love to spend a couple of days riding with you. I'll get our schedule together and see what the time frame to leave will be. I've already told the guys at work I'd be leaving early.

So far I have just over 6000 miles on the boulevard. I'm really enjoying it. Rode the GV250 back from a dealer and couldn't wait to get back on the C50!!! ;D Pat & I rode with the Legion Riders to Dalton, MA, a 185 mile trip. The new Mustang seat really helped as she wasn't numb or sore at all.

Too bad, Lou. Hope the pooch recovers OK. NC has a plenty of short-tmpered rattlesnakes to stumble over and the dogs never know enough to back off.

We usually hold a Southeast rally in the Spring too and it is often in GA-SC area, so should be close to you. Depends on our spring travel plans, though, so I won't be setting anything up until early February

TO ALL SE RALLY ATTENDEES...

Nancy & I will be providing dinner on Sunday night (10/28) - it's our way of welcoming all you folks to the rally (and saving you from cooking as soon as you arrive too)! The usual procedure applies - bring your own refreshments, plates, etc. and we will provide the chow.  Don't expect anything fancy - probably just burgers, dogs and sausages on the grill, with some salads on the side. Dinner will be whenever we get tired of Happy Hour jabbering with each other and want something a bit more solid in our bellies. Of course, we may be so full of hors d'oeuvres by then that nobody will want any dinner.

I'd also like to suggest that we have the traditional rally breakfast (prepared by the men) on Tuesday a.m..  Figure to start food prep around 8:30 or so and eat by 10.  The ladies usually like to plan a shopping trip afterwards, but I'll leave that to them.

If we want to do a potluck, either Monday or Wednesday night is open, but since there are usually lots of leftovers, maybe Monday is a better choice? Think it over - both "if" and "when" are up to the group to decide.

Guys, if you are reading this, be sure to pass the word onto Mama. She will want to know and may commit GBH (Grievous Bodily Harm) on your person if you fail to communicate!

Highs daytime 73 - 75 deg.    Lows nighttime  43 - 53 degrees.

Any bets?   :)

That means  the Crown Club will provide "refreshments"  in return for you listening to me tell you to buy tour next luxury coach at LD so you can enjoy the benefits of the Crown Club.

Gary,

I'm afraid we are past Crown Club members. Our membership was over three years ago but we were told by one of the Crown Club service advisors that we could call him if we had a problem.  Sure wish they had built that club house sooner!!! We hope to stop by and say hi to our friends at Lazy Days on our way home. Sure glad you are much more brief than most sales persons!!! ;D ;D ;D

ATTENTION: Helaine, Wally, and Jeff.

Looks like youse guys are off the hook as far as spilling my Scotch is concerned. Last night at the Brinks' Southeastern Rally, one unfortunate soul sat down at a wooden picnic table and the seat broke in half, sending her to the ground. No injuries, but the wooden seat had a large, unnoticed area of dry rot and broke right in half. One well-meaning gentleman (who shall remain anonymous) grabbed the broken pieces and started ripping them off. Naturally, I had just set a fresh glass of Scotch on the table, and that sent it tumbling  :'(   So you see, folks, it appears the spilled Scotch dilemma follows me around, and can't be attributed to either Wally or Jeff; Helaine is two for two, so I'm not quite sure about her yet, but am willing to give the benefit of the doubt! ;)

All in all, a great time was had by all, with Nancy and Gary providing the evening's grub; and great it was! Afterwards, the traditional washtub fire provided ample opportunity for good conversation, with Jim Dick acting as resident smoke magnet.

Here are some pictures from the cookout last night that Gary and Nancy provided.  As Karl said a good time was had by all.

Tonight all of us went out to Gambino's in Fairhope and a great time and excellent food.  The view wasn't bad either because we were looking out at Mobile Bay.

Looks to be a fair turnout and as usual the food will be superb, cause everyone has a smile.  ice pics  Lorna.  I did notice that Ned and Karl  a bit on the quiet side.  Are they in the dog house for some reason.  Those things are usually reserved for me.

So Tim and Marsha just had to get in the act and take the smoke magnet honors away from Jim & Pat.  Somehow I think Jim & Pat are willing to share that honor. ;D ;D

Maybe you should thank Shayne or Bernie for sending it your way from AZ. ;D

Anyone who sent it our way has our thanks. :) Had another last night at Pensacola Naval Air Station. Tonight's sunset kind of fizzled but we have a few more days to catch another.
