Bob:

We were there at that mud rally of FMCA at Perry.  Fred says we had the Bounder, so had to be after Dec. of 1994, when we bought the Bounder, and prior to the fall of 1997, when we got the Dutch Star.  Our logs are out in th MH and we may get down there later today, so we'll try to remember to bring them back.

That was really a mess, but we saw some really hilarious and some really DUMB stunts people were doing to get "unstuck".......   

There was a pre-rally of forum members at Highland ??? Campground.  Joel & Camilla were there, Sarah & "Elliot", George & Joanna Jannini and us and I can't remember the others right now, but I know there were several others.  That was the old Compuserve Forum members then, and some of them are no longer around or at least I haven't seen them here.  That was a really long time ago..... ;D

Tom,
I've got most of the SE Rally locations and several of the GPS coords, so no big deal to get the rest. Will send you a text file soon.

I also need to peruse the gallery to see what rally photos I need to add.

Ken Kuch if you're reading this???

When was the pre-FMCA Rally at Essex Juction, VT.  Fred and I remember that was probably the first time we met you.  And Sheila was looking for a good used Blue Bird...... :D

We met either at that one or the one Joel and Camilla hosted at the other end of VT., the name of which escapes me now.  The one Joel hosted was a mini-rally, because Joel and Camille were going to be there and wondered who else might come???  You two, the Dicks, Jannini's and Myers and us were there.  Who else?  Don't remember that year either.

I've got swatches of memories, but no times to go with them.  Is that a sign of old age or what? ??? ::)

That is the same rally as the pictures you have.  It was held at Wassumpski Springs Campground.

Thanks Daisy. I found their web site; Scarborough it is, although the name is slightly different, but Fred has a darned good memory. I updated the pin on the map.

The first Perry Fmca (the mud bowl) was March 1996. Sheila and I were there but not parked with the group. We left a day early and got out before the really mud.

Daisy,

I know our first FMCA event was the NE Area Rally in Fryburg, ME in July, 1994 ( a week or two after we picked up our first MH) We met one other Forum member at this rally, but I don't remember his name (Mac?)

I believe the first NE Rally in Essex Junction was in July or August 1995. She and I were there with the Green MT Chapter as hosts of that rally. I believe that is the time we met you and Fred.

Later we had the Stonington Rally (which you and Fred organized)
Then we had Joel's mini rally at Dorset rally (south west VT)
And the last NE rally that we attended was the Highland Games Rally in Westfield, MA. The organizers of the Highland games gave us our own private rally site by the river - but it sure was HOT. (petty sure this was August  1999)

The first quasi forum event we attended was a dinner at the 1994 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania RV show. At the dinner was Gary Lee, Joe Lacy and a member form NJ who I can't remember (Ron P ?).

According to our copy of Rolling Stock  :D, we attended the first Moab rally starting on 4/27/2000.

Yeap - we scouted Moab campgrounds a few months after the 1999 Centermost rally (Estes Park) and emailed our findings to Barbara Barberra. I believe it was Barbara who subsequently picked Portal for the following years "Centermost", except that everybody just called it the "Moab Rally". The ironic thing is that we couldn't get back there for the first official Moab rally.

For clarification Ken, was this 2 rallies, i.e. an RV Forum NE rally and a Green MT Chapter rally?

As Ron M predicted, the center of gravity sure changed on the map.

Not at all!  It just means you've had so much fun galavanting that the new memories have smothered the old ones!  At least that's what I like to think.  ;)

Tom,

Sorry I wasn't clear. This was an FMCA area rally held at Essex Junction VT. The host chapter was the Green Mountain Chap of which we were members. The forum had a group at the rally which included Fred & Daisy and Pat & Jim Dick and I believe one other couple.

Tom,
The data associated with the Moab Hop-Skip-Jump rally has an error.  The data that comes up when the map pegs are mouse clicked is the same for both the first two pegs.  It is the data for the Hop, there isn't any data for the Skip.  Otherwise it looks like a good addition to the Forum.

Hi Dean, and thanks for the feedback.

Because the pins close together, the 'Skip' pin appears to have the 'hop' data, although in fact they each have the correct respective data. Try zooming in a notch so the pins don't overlap, and then click on them.

The Southeast US area of the map is going to get really crowded when all the SE rallies are plotted.  There will be lots of overlap unless you zoom well in.

Aye Gary, lots of rallies held in the SE. I believe I put all the SE rallies on the map last night, thus my "center of gravity changed" comment.

Speaking of which, there wasn't an album for the 2008 Fall SE Rally in the photo section that I could tell.  Do you need some photos of it?

I didn't take any photos at the 2008 Fall rally, so any you have will be appreciated. Send to Tom, not me. I beleive there were some photos posted in the forum, though.

There are lots of photos posted in the rally's thread, but none in the new photo album area.  How do we send them to Tom?  In a zip file via e-mail?

Send via email. No need to zip them if they are JPG or other already compressed format.  Just send as attachments to the email

I am seeing only 8 balloons for the SE rallies. There have been 20 SE rallies in 18 different locations, so many are missing.

I have pictures of the "12 Days of Quartzsite" from a couple of years ago. Do you want those? If you do, this techno dummy will figure out a way to send them (asking Mike would probably be the best solution to that quandry).

Wendy,

I vaguely recall some "12 days of Christmas" photos in the respective QZ photo album. If you get a chance, take a look at the photos, and maybe you could send me the missing ones. You could either attach individual photos to an email, or put them in a .zip file and attach it. Last resort, I'll send you a sail mail address so you can send me a CD.

Yep, they're there. Day 10, Day 11, and Day 12 are at the very beginning and aren't labeled but all 12 Days plus Lead Singer Betty are there. Good, now I don't have to figure out how to upload my copies :)

Any chance of putting a link to the rally map on the Photo Gallery page? Might want to make a quick leap to the map after looking at some rally photos. Shuffling off to the Resources list to find the map is, ah, a  PITA.  :-[  Might also add it to the Main Menu on the Home page
