 Vall & Mo,

Of course you will be welcome. This is a laid back get together. A good place to meet some other forum members.

Get a site reserved ASAP!!!  I haven't looked since we had to cancel but they were pretty full then, about 1 to 2 weeks ago.

  Va ll & Mo,

Glad you can join us, but note that you we be missing many of the attendees as they arrive on 12/27 and 12/28.

For anyone else looking to come it looks like the south side of the "B" campground is sold out, but their are spaces in the north side. There is a paved walkway at the Restrooms connecting the areas. Also note that "A" campground no longer offers 50amp service. It is none only 30amp. (I assume they down graded it because of wire capacity issues as it has always had 30/50 amp pedestals.

Thanks for the warning. We had noticed it, but unfortunately by the 27th we will need to be someplace else... :-/

See you there,

Our daughter just gave us her travel schedule and she will be visiting thru the 28th ( she was originally coming in January), so we have had to cancel our reservations for the 25th-28th, coming on the 29th. Still staying till the 2nd.

Add one more to the no-show pile.  I was hoping to take that week off, but medical problems intervened.  Not mine, but a co-worker who will be out until the first part of January, so I'm stuck in town covering things until he returns to work.

Space B-25 will be available tomorrow if anyone wants to move in closer to the rest of the group.

On the good side, this means I will be able to attend the Bluegrass Festival and at least part of the Quartzsite rally!

I'm hoping Wendy.  Not this week, though - there's supposed to be Alaskan storm blowing in Wednesday night and that will keep me hopping.  Any combination of rain and wind virtually ensures at least one of the main sites will be without power.

Lou,

Sorry to hear you will miss the Catalina rally. Was hoping to see you there but will see you in QZ. Having worked in a microwave radio group for a telco I certainly know what needs to be done during any weather event.  :)

Sure wish we could join you folks, since we are just down the road in Benson. But we are working during that entire time frame. Same problem during the Q rally. Oh well, will shoot for next year. Have a good time everyone, and happy holidays to all.

We left Catalina SP this morning and there were more people today than when we arrived five days ago.  Our first visit and we will return.  Unfortunately, since we are not yet retired work calls.. if we can figure out how to get back to Oregon with all the snow.

We hope you all enjoy the rally, and have a Merry Christmas!

Sheila just received a call from Fred and Daisy. They are going to have to cancel this year.
We will really miss not having them with us at the rally.

But if anyone was thinking of coming, site B34 is available ( I checked the website). Based on Catalina's popularity it may not remain available for long.

We are leaving for Catalina tomorrow.

Yesterday Randy and Debbie joined Sheila and I at the Movies (This is 40) and then lunch at Olive Garden.
Tonight we had a little gathering in our motorhome  with Randy&Debbie and Vall&Mo.
It was a pleasure to meet Vall&Mo and learn about their plans to fulltime in the US in a few years.
The picture attached was taken by Vall (using a micro tripod).

Ken, I noticed a significant problem with Vall's camera. It made all of us look much older than we really are. He should get a new  one, with a better lens, for the rest of their trip.

We arrived at Catalina in time to accompany Ken & Sheila to Benson for lunch with Fred & Daisy. Sheila said we needed a photo so here it is. Great seeing everyone again.

Randy, the iphone takes care of the problem with Vall's camera!  ;)

No Fair!  We wanted to see Fred and Daisy too. Oh well............ sigh..........  I hate to miss anything.  I am at home baking.  Yes baking!  I'll bring the apple cake to Catalina.  We will arrive Thursday ( tomorrow.)   Only 6 points per slice! I did 60 minutes of Zumba this morning!
