2009 RV FORUM SOUTHEAST FALL RALLY SCHEDULED!
« on: August 10, 2009, 08:22:01 PM »
Nancy & I are going camping and invite all our  RV Forum friends (and their friends too) to join us. This years Fall Rally will be at the Lake Aire RV Park near Charleston, SC, from Oct 28 thru Nov 1. Come early or late and stay later if you can, but please join us.

Charleston has lots to see and do and there is plenty of shopping for the ladies. For the men there is the aircraft carrier Yorktown and Fort Sumter and nearly everybody enjoys the fascinating Charleston Aquarium or Magnolia Plantation.

Lake Aire is on the outskirts of Charleston, just off US 17.  They have grassy sites with plenty of full hook-ups and both 30A and 50A available. Most are pull-through sites.  The area we will be in is open, so satellite tv or internet should work fine. We will also have the use of their pavilion and big fire pit.  Free Wifi too, though I don't know how much of the park it covers.

Make your own reservations and tell them you are with the RV Forum group. Passport America rates are honored and so are Good Sam and Happy Campers or ask about the special rally rate.

50amp full hook up sites are $24.59 per night and 30amp full hook up is $21.27 per night and these rates do include tax and sewer.

Lake Aire RV Park
4375 Highway 162
Hollywood, SC 29449

We stayed at Lake Aire twice last spring, once for a rally and another on our way back to Hilton Head (preferred Lake Aire), and wouldn't hesitate going back. The owners are real nice people. Sorry we can't make the rally, it would be great seeing our "Eastern" friends again.

We've stayed there multiple times too.  About the only drawback is the railroad track that runs by the campground and some folks will even be nostalgic about that.

I thought it was a prerequisite for ALL campgrounds to be adjacent to the rail road tracks, with mainline tracks being preferred<<GGG>>.

Gary, I am going to seriously consider doing this, but I may be a late entry. I am on another trip though the Carolinas and Florida that was scheduled to depart towards home around 10/25 or so. Maybe I could extend by a few days, but I need to work and pay for this coach as well!!! I can work as long as I have internet access, so I may join you, but not be visible until HAPPY HOUR!

Cheryl and I would love to be there, but we've had a late September to mid-October three-week trip planned for the past year.  Family and work considerations dictate that we not head back out on another trip the end of October.

Have a great time and we hope to catch you next time.  Fix two of those ziplock omelets for us.  Yummm!

Here is some additional rally info...

The usual daily happenings will occur, all informal (we rarely do anything "formal" anyway).

- an informal coffee klatch starting around 8 a.m. or whenever people begin to stumble about. Bring your coffee or tea cup and maybe a pot of coffee or some sweet rolls to share
- Happy Hour around 4 pm. Bring your favorite beverage for yourselves and perhaps some hors de'ouvres to share
- Meal time around 6 pm or so. Bring your own plate and utensils.
- Evening camp fire where we continue the camaraderie and swap lies wisdom & humor


Because the first night is usually very social as people renew old friendships and make new ones, I suggest that we plan the first night (10/28) to have "heavy hors de-ouvres" and call that "dinner". That way we don't have to pause to get a meal together.

On the second night (10/29), Nancy & I will provide the evening meal, probably chicken or ribs or maybe even both. Just bring your appetite and utensils.

On the third night (10/30), we could do the traditional pot luck dinner, if folks wish to bring a dish, or maybe somebody else will volunteer something?

And on the last night (10/31) we may want to go out to a restaurant or ??? Whatever the group decides



One of the Southeast rally traditions is a breakfast on one morning, prepared by the men while the ladies kibitz.  The ladies typically take off for a shopping trip afterward while the men clean up. Are you guys interested in doing that?  If so, we will have to decide on a menu and day. Maybe Saturday a.m.?

Sounds like a lot of fun is being planned!  Wish we could join in, but it's a looooong way from Phoenix.  (Plus, we were there in June for our first visit of the Charleston area) 

Have a GREAT rally!

  I'm in favor of the breakfast.  We could do pancakes, eggs & bacon w/ toast or we could provide sweets such as rolls or donuts.

Got ya on the list, Lou.

I for one love sausage gravy and biscuits. If you can organize prep for the biscuits and gravy, it would be a welcome addition.

The usual problem is too much food!  Also, we need some guys to handle things like salt & pepper, butter, serving bowls and spoons, and all the logistical odds and ends that go into serving a meal.

I hear ya, Gary.  Since this is my first rally I'll sign up for a supporting role and just watch and learn.  I must admit though that I make a mean sausage gravy and a very edible biscuit. ;) :D  Maybe at a future rally.

We do several "Pig Pickin's" every year so I do have a fairly large assortment of mixing/serving bowls, cooking/serving utensils, a good collection of kitchen knives and several cutting/prep boards that I will bring.  These are all items that have seen many community brunches and family reunions.

I'll do a BJ's or CostCo run and pick up some salt and pepper shakers. 

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone attending.

You could whip up a small batch any morning, Lou. At these affairs, people typically gather outside some rig, coffee cup in hand, to swap lies and nibble on whatever goodies some kind soul offers.   I'll bet a plate of biscuits and a bowl of gravy would disappear real quick!

There is a station at the corner where you turn from rte. 17 onto the road for Lake Aire, but can't remember if it carried diesel. You can give them a call at (843) 763-6250. Think it does carry it, but not sure. We didn't need to buy any when we were at Lake Aire. But there is a great coffee roaster up the road on 17 west bound on the north side of the road in Ravenel-ICCB.

It does have a coffee bar, but its primary business is coffee beans. I had them custom roast a couple of pounds of Sumatra beans for me, GREAT. Reasonable also,about $10/lb for most varieties.

Just me again.  Has anybody ever done a low country boil?  How many people are you expecting for the rally.  For those of you who dont know what it is, it originated in Frogmore SC and was called (and still is) Frogmore stew.  Different names with the same concept around the country.  Anyhow, consists of corn on the cob, potatoes, shrimp, crabs,and sausage with lots of old bay seasoning, and lemons boiled in a huge pot.  At the end of cooking time you  dump the pot on a table lined with newspaper.  Delicious, and clean up consists of rolling up the newspaper and throwing it away.  Only thing to wash is the pot.  Sounds good doesnt it?  Oh, in Charleston it is called a Low Country boil.

I added you to the list, Clyde. It's back at Reply #11 in this thread. 12 rigs have reservations and three more are "maybe".

We used to have a Guest Chef night, where we each chipped in a few bucks and somebody took on the job of preparing a "surprise" meal for all. Twice it was a "boil", but not the South Carolina "Low Country" style.  Once we had it New Orleans style and another time it was called Southern Hobo stew, though is was very similar to the Low Country.

Wish you had joined in earlier - we could have used a volunteer chef!

For all that are attending the S.E. Rally, please bring your golf clubs for a game during the rally.    I know that there are at least 4 of us that can play.  They include:  Ron and Shirley Marabito, Ray Baginski and Jeff Cousins.

The RV Park has requested that I tell them who wants 50A and who wants 30A sites. Some of the reservations did not specify which was desired (Duh - didn't they ask?).

Anyway, if you could PM or email me with requirements I will pass them on.  I know that Marabito, Cousins, Reavis, Weimart, Nesbit, Johnson, and Baginski all have 50A rigs, so will assume you want 50A unless I hear otherwise from you.  The rest of you I would like to hear from.

Re-post of original announcement...

Nancy & I are going camping and invite all our  RV Forum friends (and their friends too) to join us. This years Fall Rally will be at the Lake Aire RV Park near Charleston, SC, from Oct 28 thru Nov 1. Come early or late and stay later if you can, but please join us.

Charleston has lots to see and do and there is plenty of shopping for the ladies. For the men there is the aircraft carrier Yorktown and Fort Sumter and nearly everybody enjoys the fascinating Charleston Aquarium or Magnolia Plantation.

Lake Aire is on the outskirts of Charleston, just off US 17.  They have grassy sites with plenty of full hook-ups and both 30A and 50A available. Most are pull-through sites.  The area we will be in is open, so satellite tv or internet should work fine. We will also have the use of their pavilion and big fire pit.  Free Wifi too, though I don't know how much of the park it covers.

Make your own reservations and tell them you are with the RV Forum group. Passport America rates are honored and so are Good Sam and Happy Campers or ask about the special rally rate.

50amp full hook up sites are $24.59 per night and 30amp full hook up is $21.27 per night and these rates do include tax and sewer.

Lake Aire RV Park
4375 Highway 162
Hollywood, SC 29449

Re-post of original agenda...

The usual daily happenings will occur, all informal (we rarely do anything "formal" anyway).

- an informal coffee klatch starting around 8 a.m. or whenever people begin to stumble about. Bring your coffee or tea cup and maybe a pot of coffee or some sweet rolls to share
- Happy Hour around 4 pm. Bring your favorite beverage for yourselves and perhaps some hors de'ouvres to share
- Meal time around 6 pm or so. Bring your own plate and utensils.
- Evening camp fire where we continue the camaraderie and swap lies wisdom & humor

Because the first night is usually very social as people renew old friendships and make new ones, I suggest that we plan the first night (10/28) to have "heavy hors de-ouvres" and call that "dinner". That way we don't have to pause to get a meal together.

On the second night (10/29), Nancy & I will provide the evening meal, probably chicken or ribs or maybe even both. Just bring your appetite and utensils.

On the third night (10/30), we could do the traditional pot luck dinner, if folks wish to bring a dish, or maybe somebody else will volunteer something?

And on the last night (10/31) we may want to go out to a restaurant or Huh Whatever the group decides


One of the Southeast rally traditions is a breakfast on one morning, prepared by the men while the ladies kibitz.  The ladies typically take off for a shopping trip afterward while the men clean up. Are you guys interested in doing that?  If so, we will have to decide on a menu and day. Maybe Saturday a.m.?     Follow-up: Several people wanted to do this, so consider it to be "ON". We will figure out the details when we get there.

Gary,

If I'm reading the PA site correctly. PA price will be $22.25 @ nite for 50A with FHU? And the regular price is $27.50 for 30A W/E?

PA website says $13.75 discount rate for a 30A WE site PLUS $4.00 utilities surcharge for a total of $17.75.   That can be upgraded with sewer for $1.75 and 50A for $3.00. That would be  $17.75 + 1.75 + $3.00 = $22.50, right?  Plus SC tax, which is a whopping 10.5% on hotel rooms and rv park sites.  I think the regular rate for a 50A FHU is $32 + tax.

A little side conversation.  Have you calculated the distance to travel to this neat event from your starting point? You won't regret it.

  Would be interesting to know from the folks that have signed up and intend to attend.

  I live in central Florida- West/Gulf coast. My travel encompasses approx. 375 miles one way.

I will probably stay overnight about half way on the trip (enjoying the RV'ing experience).

  Would like to know about the rest of the folks info planning to attend.

We will be on a month long trip from central Florida to Norfolk, VA area and then back south again, with stops along the way. The rally will be part of the return trip.   I have no idea where we will be the night before, but the total trip will probably run about 2000 miles or so.

If we went directly, it would be about 844 miles. Probably 3 overnights, and arrive on the fourth day. Gonna try to overnight in the WalMart in Rock Hill, SC, on the 26th. And try to get fuel in the Hess on 17 in Johns Island, SC.

But we're not taking a direct route, and it's gonna take us 18 days to get there. Visiting family, friends, and repair shops along the way. About 950 miles.

For those attending the rally, I would recommend a little day trip..not far just North of Charleston..

   IT is another plantation...historic...  It is called "BOONE  HALL PLANTATION". History galore and entertainment. I think it is free, iirc.

Here is the website

   Enjoy...we did.

Thanks for invitation Gary. It would have been a nice opportunity to meet many people in person. I made reservations and several hours later my daughter called and informs me that she had just re-booked an unused plane ticket and is coming to visit us during the same week of the rally :-\ . So needed to cancel the rally and hope to have an other opportunity to meet some of the forum members in the future.

Our one way distance to the rally will be 1360 miles.    Richardson, Texas, via Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas, Smoky Mountain NP and on to Hollywood, SC.

Since we were robbed of our summer travels, we are really anxious to get on the road and see old sites and see old and new friends.

I guess The Navigator and I could claim that we are coming to the SE Rally from St. Mary, MT, making the trip, according to Google Maps, between 2500 and 2600 miles, depending on route taken.

Does the 2 week break at the stick house in Cary, NC on the way disqualify us?

Sure looking forward to the Rally!

I thought about that option as well but she is the only one in our family that was not much into RVing. I am going to have to pass on this one.

Hello All:
I regret to inform all that the trip to Charleston, for the SE Rally is off for me. I was looking forward to meeting everyone. Maybe I'll make it next year, or another rally. I hope all goes well for you guys and a nice time is had by all.

I recommend a trip to the "USS Yorktown" (Gary showed interest earlier, I believe) there was a 93 year old volunteer working the desk on the ship, and I was looking forward to talking to him again. We talked for at least a half hour, him telling me of his service during the war (he worked in Design Engineering as a draftsman.


Regrets,
Jim O'Connor (Mr. Bojangles)

I too must cancel.  I received an opportunity for an all expense paid overseas trip.

Camille plans to drive over and visit for a day.

When I called to cancel, the campground person said "What's going on?"  I hope you have a good crowd.

Good day to all

DW has asked me to inquire if any of the rally attendee's are interested in Geocaching?  If that word doesn't mean anything, check here: 

http://www.geocaching.com/

She started last winter and is firmly hooked, so would be willing to work with any of the folks if there's an interest.

See you on the 28th

I'm not prepared to do all the cooking that Gary and Nancy do, but I'm sure we can carry on if they can't be with us.  We'll elect a leader when we get there.   Hope that no one cancels because of the accident.  Anyway, we can talk about Gary and Nancy and make recommendations for their future.  (bg)  I know it isn't funny, but since they are O.K., we might as well be happy about it and continue their wonderful tradition of the Southeast Rally.

  I am the worst person in the world to remember names and faces.

Maybe the screen name and first name...will that fly. ?

I expected to see you wearing a tag that said "Carson", but now you say it's  "I am Versatile".

Maybe we do need name tags.

Are you offering to make name tags for the SE rally?

   Looks my versatility is down the tubes. Haven't been able to find suitable name tags in my little town here; looks like a good idea having gone bad. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea after all.  :-[

  Anyone else wish to salvage this major problem?

  Maybe a Magic Marker on the forehead will work.

See you soon. carson FL

Carson, this isn't rocket science. Print them on self-adhesive labels, or print on plain paper and use pins  ??? Easier to remove than ink from a Magic Marker  ;)

Good idea, Tom. One problem..I am not set up to print labels and don't have enough time now to get that system going. Re pinning, I guess long thumbtacks will work.  ;D

As you folks have already guessed, Nancy & I have to cancel because of our motorhome accident. Unfortunately, that  means the dinner we were throwing is also off, so you will have to get creative for that night.

Ron Marabito has offered to help and Ray Baginski is another good organizer. And both are good at the breakfast arrangements, if you go ahead with that idea.

Have fun, enjoy Charleston's sights, and don't worry about us!

Anyone with a word processing program can make name badges, with or without the forum logo. Staples work really well for attaching the name tags to your chest  ;D Or any office supply store should have those stick-on ones that say "Hello, My Name Is....." which combined with Carson's Magic Marker would do fine.

Wendy, I was thinking ticket punch through the ear lobe and a pop rivet to hold the tag on.  That way, one tag should last for the whole Rally.  I'll practice on Carson ;) ;D

Don't forget rally photos, please! Accomplished photographer Ron Marabito will be there, and I suspect others will have cameras. Feel free to post any and all photos by attaching them to your forum message - see this explanation if you're not sure how to do that, and please take note of the file size limitations and photo resizing procedures. Be sure to ask if you're having difficulty.

I'll open a new album for the rally (see the Photos button above). I'm especially looking forward to the photo of Lou pop riveting a badge to someone's ear  ;D

On a more serious note.... I am a good cook, but a terrible meal planner, so I can't volunteer to step in for Gary and Nancy for Thursday nights dinner.  However, I was planning to bring a small amount (approx 2 lbs.) of home smoked shredded pork for potluck night.  I will increase that to several lbs.   Some will be seasoned in the eastern North Carolina style and some just hickory smoked, so if you have a favorite sauce bring a sample.   If someone can plan a meal around that, please step up.

I've got 23 lbs. of pork shoulder ready for the smoker early tomorrow morning.  That should produce about 11 or 12 lbs. of shredded/pulled pork in about 12 hours.  I realize that not everyone does, or can, eat pork, but Eastern Carolina smoked pork is good groceries in these parts.

I purposely did NOT season it beyond the 'six pepper rub' that I normally apply prior to smoking. 

You Texans, and other foreigners, best bring your favorite sauce 'cause I'm a vinegar and pepper man myself.

I do have some:

Sweet Baby Ray's, (three varieties)
Carolina Treet,
Scott's,
Well's BBQ,
Smokin' Joe's,
Bone Suckin' Sauce,
Kansas City, Hickory,
Memphis Original,
South Carolina Mustard Sauce
and....
Western Carolina Tomatoe based Sauce.

But, other than that.... you better bring your own..... ;) :D

I'd love to do a real down home pig pickin' on the desert.

Hopefully, my situation (and my health) will allow it sometime in the next few years.

BTW - Pig Pickin's ain't complete without some banjo pickin'.  Just look at my avatar and you can tell thars' a banjo in the RV somewhere.
