2008 RV Forum Southeast Fall Rally
« on: July 19, 2008, 08:40:03 PM »
Gary & Nancy invite all of you to join us at the King George RV Resort in Woodbine, GA October 24-28, 2008. No special plans - just make a reservation and show up for some fun!

The King George RV Resort is a small park located just off I-95 Exit 7 in southern Georgia. All sites are full hookup 30/50A pullthroughs and the park is satellite friendly. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, clubhouse & pavilion, large community fire ring, and laundry.  It is a Passport America Park as well as RPI, so many of you should be able to stay at steeply discounted rates, If not, a special $25/night rally rate will apply for Friday & Saturday night.

See http://www.passport-america.com/campgrounds/united_states/georgia/woodbine/king_george_rv_park/ for information and a map.

King George RV Park
5200 Old Still Rd
Woodbine, GA 31569
(912) 729-4110

kinggeorgerv@hotmail.com

The Florida snowbird traffic gets heavy in late October and King George is a popular stopover spot, so early reservations are suggested. However, the park is closed August 1-15 and they request that you do not call for reservations before August 23.

Right in our backyard! (Almost. Well, close enough).

Mary Ann and I plan to be there.  Lots happened since Nashville and we're looking forward to catching up with everyone's news.

We tried to make a reservation today and they would not book it at the current time.  They said to "call back after August 16."  A note on their Passport America web page says "Park closed August 1st through 15th for staff vacation and maintenance."  It's only July 22, so you would think they would take a reservation since they are obviously still there...   ???

Still looking forward to the rally despite this bump in the road.  We've decided to make this our "Fall Trip" for this year and are going to stay the preceding four days (Oct. 20-24) at Jekyll Island Campground, which is about 40 miles away from Woodbine.  We have stayed there twice before and really enjoyed it.

Strange - when I worked out arrangements with Olivia, the General Manager of the park, she didn't say anything about not accepting reservations until after their August vacation. And she did strongly recommend getting all our reservations in by September 16.

I'll get back in touch with her and see what's up.

Looks like we'll be missing another good time, with many of the same group who were in Nashville in May.  Unfortunately it's a bit too early for us as we won't be crossing into the State until December in order to extend our stay until later in the spring,  To those who have never participated, make an effort, Nashville was our first, but not the last, Rally.  It is an informal get together with a lot of people who frequent this forum, and it was a lot of fun.

I emailed Olivia Crawford at King George about the rally reservations and here is her response:

Quote
I asked you to have them call after we close from Aug 1-15th because every thing is cleaned and I want to list your people on the board so as to try to put all of you together if possible.
 
I asked them to call back the end of August or they can call the first week of September.  We usually don't take reservations more than 30 days in advance but I'm making an exception for your group so I can try to put them as close together as possible.
 
Sorry for the confusion.
Olivia

So please hold off on calling for rally reservations until August 23.

I dont know if its too late or not but im interested in attending. I've never been to a rally and I've never hung out with other RV'ers. Would I be out of place being a 27 single male? What goes on during these Rallys? I'm based in Atlanta so it wouldnt be too hard for me to make it. Thanks.

Of course you'd be welcome!  We've never been to one either, but we hope to be there.

As noted previously, call on or after August 23 to make a reservation.

Donna and I had never attended any type of RV rally, but we decided at almost the last minute to attend the spring rally in Nashville.  We had a ball, met several of the regulars, and senior members.  It was a laid back good time, unfortunately you will likely be the youngest one there, byt no-one will really care.

Hi Brian,
Glad you are coming and look forward to meeting you.

Our forum rallies are just people going camping together and doing what they usually do. No rally fees or scheduled events, but we often do things together, e.g. go to a restaurant, visit some local attraction or have a pot luck dinner. We gather daily around 4 pm for a happy hour and social and folks often bring snacks to share.   We often do a brunch one morning too, if the attendees decide to do it. We call it a Men's Breakfast, cause the men to the cooking and the clean-up.

Everything is strictly join in if you want too and contribute what you want to.

What can I say, Jim. Maybe the manager [Olivia] was having a bad hair day when she refused them before and told me we had to wait until late August.  ??? The office at the campground is supposed to be closed right now, so I'm surprised anybody even answered the phone!

Oh well, whatever works.  :D

Called to make a reservation this morning and got a recording that the park is closed until August 31 due to flooding from tropical storm Fay.

I'm starting to get fed up with this park, Fay or no. If they don't get their act together soon I'll be finding another place. Will see what happens next week.

UPDATE: I talked with somebody who had a friend staying at King George when Fay blew over. They did indeed get a lot of rain and the park flooded - guess that Georgia clay doesn't drain very well!  They shut the park down and everybody there had to evacuate.

Giles & Suzanne, the rally is too early for us so we won't be able to make it.  But we will be there in spirit, and we expect you two to raise a glass or so in our honour.  Hope you had a good summer, and that your trip to Quebec went well.  What did you decide to do about a toad?

Ed & Donna, glad to hear from you. How is the world treating you ? Looks like you are moving constantly ! We sure did enjoy your  Company. We had a wonderful trip; spent several days in Boston with our friends, then a 2 weeks stay in Quebec City; it rained 13 days out of 15, and it was cold, between 65-75 F degrees, everybody was depressed on the campground, but for us it felt great (around 104 F here at home); nice break; and we were there to meet with family members, so we did not care about the weather. We also picked up the hugs and kisses under the old bridge, where you had left them.  Thanks. Still undecided about the toad; we rented a car in Quebec City since we stayed there 2 weeks. No problems during the trip except for a few scratches in thight places, (this thing is longer and higher than I thought, but we love it ), and 2 dead chassis batteries which were replaced easily.  May not be able to attend the Southeast rallye because of my work schedule, will see. In the meantime, you all have a good time, and let us know if you ever come down South.  :D :D

The King George Resort is supposed to be open and taking reservations as of 9/1. Don't know if they will bother to staff the office on Labor Day if they have been closed for the last several days, but they said 9/1. Those of you who have been waiting to reserve can give it a shot and let us know what happens.

Well, Olivia at King George says the park still isn't open and probably won't be before Sept 9. Now they are expecting to get hit by TS Hanna, which is headed toward the Atlantic coast. She promises to contact me when they are open again.

Cheryl called this morning and talked to a lady there, presumably Olivia.  She was outside at the time and said she was picking things up in advance of Hanna and they would not be taking reservations until next week.

Then a couple of hours later she (Olivia?) called Cheryl back and said that she would take the reservation.  Cheryl gave her our information, so I guess that we are set.  (She never asked for a credit card number.)

I think she said that we have 2 days at the rally rate ($25) and 2 days at the Passport America rate.

Googling "Jekyll Island Campground" brings up two sites. One Jekyll Island Campground on Riverview drive and the other Jekyll Island Authority Campground on Beachview drive. Both are listed as 1197. Is this just one big CG with two entrances or what is the difference? What location are you going to visit. It looks like we may have a few days before the SE Rally. We might decide to go there.

There is only one campground on the island.  It is on the northern tip.  I think the confusion comes from the road changing names right about at that point.  If you turn east out of the campground, the road is called Beachview since it goes down the ocean side.  If you turn west out of the campground, the road is called Riverview since it goes down the inland waterway side.

We've stayed there twice and have really enjoyed it.  Free Wi-Fi, too.

Suzanne and I hate to miss the Fall Rallye,  :(, with all the good Company, the good food and the learning experience.  But a year ago, we promised my sister from Canada that we would do the Natchez Trace with them when they were ready to do so, and they chose the last 10 days of October.  By the way Dave & Dave, 2 weeks ago,  we spent a few days at the festival in Townsend, TN, and Suzanne ordered a hand made Dulcimer from a local artist; she loved your music.  :D

Giles, sorry to hear that.  We were looking forward to seeing you both again.

You'll enjoy the Natchez Trace, we've driven it both ways.  No commercial traffic, 50mph, and lots of trees :)

Nancy & I (well, mostly Nancy) will be making dinner for everybody on the first night of the rally (Friday, 10/24). It's our way of thanking everybody for joining us at these semi-annual affairs.

This fall's menu is basic Italian fare: pasta with a red sauce, Italian sausage & meatballs, and plenty of Italian bread to go with it. We will supply a bottle or two of wine as well, but more would no doubt be well received if any of you care to bring a bottle to share.
 
Bring your own plates, glasses and utensils as you would for a pot luck dinner. We will do the cooking, but you are on your own with the dishes!

By the way, if anybody cannot do with meat in their spaghetti sauce, please let me know and we will make provisions for a meatless sauce as well. Not a problem - just need to plan ahead if it is needed.

One of the usual things at a Southeast Rally is a community breakfast. In recent times it has been a "Men's Breakfast", where the men do the cooking and clean-up, always a popular item with the ladies.  This time will be a bit different. Jeff Cousins has agreed to host an "Omelet In A Bag" breakfast on Monday morning from 9-11 a.m.  We will have eggs and various omelet ingredients (onions, peppers, ham, bacon, seasonings, etc.) on hand and each of us can choose our own "fixins" and put them in a plastic bag. Chef Jeff will them cook them to perfection and give them back when ready.

We will need donations of ingredients -  lots of eggs, and some onions, red & green peppers, ham, cheese, mushrooms, bacon bits and whatever else you can think of to make an interesting omelet and some early morning man/woman power to chop and dice the ingredients.  And a supply of the small size freezer quality ziplock bags (the standard kind don't hold up to the handling and cooking).  We could also use some rolls or bread for toast and maybe some breakfast sausage to accompany the omelets.

The usual logistics apply - bring your plate, utensils and beverage.

What ever we are donating in the form of ingredients we can chop before bringing them.  Does that make sense?

You and me both Jim.  We have attended a couple of the Southeast rallies and had a great time. 

But look at the good side the snow is gone and Temps in the 50s - 60s for the rest of the week here at Sam's Camp. ;D

How time flies... It seems like yesterday that we were at Wales West in Alabama.

   Wish we could attend the GA one as well, but no go this time.

   What are you guys going to do without the ChooChoo train and without the pancakes. See below.

Sure, Lorna.  Things like onions and peppers can certainly be sliced and diced ahead of time. Probably ham, bacon, etc. too.  Nancy picked up two boxes of freezer bags yesterday, so we are all set for containers.  I've got water proof marking pens to put names on the bags too.

Fresh is great and appropriate for this breakfast, but,... I've discovered Pepper Stir Fry in the freezer case and wanted to share.  It's chopped peppers and onions.  It's easy to get a handful out of the bag and throw in whatever along with a spoonful of minced garlic from the jar.  Easy and adds a lot.

I'll bring a big bag of cooked and chopped bacon.

Whoa there, pardner.  I'm not sure I'm ready for garlic in my omelet early in the morning.   :P

If some are eating Garlic it is recommended everybody eats garlic.  Only took one trip to Korea to figure out one of the first thing to do is to go eat somehing with garlic like maybe some kimchi. ;D ;D

I never realized kimchi had garlic in it.  I have always assumed that it was made of rotten stuff and never suspected the garlic.  Any idea what else is in it.

Nancy & I organize two each year somewhere in the Southeast - Spring & Fall. Other members organize some events in the western US, in the winter at Quartzite in in the Spring in Utah area (e.g. Moab).

We also have "mini-rallies", which is what we call it when 2-3 or more RV Forum members get together somewhere in their travels. These happen all the time because folks keep in touch through the forum and make plans to meet.  We will have a mini-rally Tuesday in Savannah while on our way to the Southeast Rally, meeting up with a couple other forum rigs to visit the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum.

Yeah, I already looked at the calendar :D  I saw the rally pictures from Moab....wondering if the one in 2007 was the same time we went out there.  We stayed at Archview the first week of April.  I'll have to keep an eye out for the Spring rally.
