I'm hitting the road in the morning and will be at the Rally site on the 20th.   Hope someone else is there.  We are stopping to play golf on the way.

Hi,

Tara is a dedicated Knitter and rarely seen without her needles. Note that she also sings occasionally (we have a complete performance set up).

Ron - We'll be arriving on the 21st. WE don't, however, play golf.

See you guys 'n gals next week.

   Just go with the flow and don't let the westerners fool you into thinking that western Rallies are any better, you know they'll try.
Ed

As a "westerner" that goes the rallies I don't think "western" rallies are any better. When I was an "easterner" (actually NE) we had quite a few North Eastern rallies that we a lot of fun (back in the late 90s).  But I haven't seen any North Eastern rallies since the Highland Games Rally in Westfield, MA. in 1999. OOPS, Actually that's not true, Fred Thomas had a pre-rally for the Brunswick FMCA Rally in August 2000.

I hope next year to be able to attend a SE rally!

Ken,

The reason you don't see any NE rallies is all of us have left NE!!  :)

Hi everyone we're the Anderson's, we've been watching this thread for a couple weeks now and would love to meet everyone.We only live about 45min from this great state park and have stayed here several times. We're planning a trip to Marion Ohio leaving on the 29 this month and having just got back from Ft. McCallister this past Friday don't know if will be able to fit this in.Hope to be able to stop by and just say hello even if we don't bring Rv.BTW if there are any Geocacher's in the group this park is loaded with caches.

Please do come by, even if just for an afternoon or happy hour. Better yet, bring the RV even if you just stay a night or two.

We've settled on the vittles for Monday night. Dave Reavis will serve his famous North Carolina BBQ and Nancy will serve chicken for those who don't do BBQ (but wait till you try Dave's before you decide!). Will have a macaroni or potato salad for a side dish.

Ernie:  Be looking forward to seeing you.   By the way, we had a mishap on the way east.  Something punctured a hole in my transmission pan.  Found it leaking when we pulled into Vicksburg.  We welded the pan and refilled it.  Hope all is good to go tomorrow.  Shirley and I played golf today.

Sorry to have to report that Mary Ann and I are not going to make it to the Rally.

The last few days we have come to the conclusion that we have been on the road as long as we can handle For this year and it is time to go home.

Hope you all have a great time! 

We will just have to participate via The Forum.......

George,

What Gary said!  :)

Don,

It's going to be a long winter. A few extra days at Gary and Nancy's rally will help shorten that time!!! Wish we could be there!!!!!

Great, Carroll. We will be there sometime Sunday afternoon, so look for the gold and black American Tradition. So will Mike & Caroline Wassing (tan & cream Holiday Endeavor on a handicapped site) and Ron & Shirley Marabito (Bluebird Wanderlodge). Maybe some others too.

The repair on the tranny pan proved to be good.  We left Vicksburg about 9 am today and we are currently in Montgomery, AL.  Plan to play golf tomorrow.

    We didn't want to stay in Montgomery another day, so I called the park and they said I could come in early.  We arrived about 4:30 pm and most of the good spots were already taken.  I think many will leave on Sunday.  Ernie & Tara:  I hope you can get a decent site.  They are having a car show on Saturday.  Hope it is decent also.  See you all when you arrive.  Shirley and I are in site 19.  Charcoal gray Wanderlodge.

Gary,

I tried to arrive early and was warned that the group had most spots; decided to arrive Sunday (We're in Tallahassee now). They said most were leaving Sunday Morning so we'll probably arrive around 2:00. Planning to ask for close to 39 or 42 or if you guys are there already.

Note:  We've got enough supplies to do "Tara's famous Pizza" one night if that works (and there is not a better offer. ;D ;D ). We might have to borrow an oven to time them right.

If I wasn't 2719 miles away in Bend, OR, I would have to roll with thought of Tara's Famous Pizza, having had some in Ennis, MT last year.  :P

Hope you have great weather!

p.s. Ron, I have missed every car show in the West by one day this year...pictures, maybe????

Doesn't make any difference, Ron. We are coming regardless.  :D   And since we all have reservations, there will be a site somewhere.

Probably around 2-ish for us as well. We aren't far, but we don't plan to leave early and have to make a stop in Savannah on the way.
