FMCA Rally, Redmond Oregon August 2014
« on: April 23, 2014, 11:26:39 AM »
Anyone else going ? We're signed up and looking forward to visiting with Framily there.

And, anyone have any places in the area that are "must" visits? places to eat?

Lots of must sees.  Starting with the headwaters of the Metolious river and Camp Sherman.  Next should be The High Desert Museum, lava rivers caved NM, if you have time, maybe Pine Mountain Observatory east of Bend.

Wendy,

We are in the planning stage to attend. Have not signed up yet. We will likely be with the Beaver security volunteers again. Becky has 2 pages of things to see in Oregon, and we are trying to get a tentative route going. We are thinking about a big loop out and back that will encompass the Seattle area down to Crater Lake to include Olympic NP, the Columbia River at Astoria, and as much of the coast of Oregon as possible. We'd like to visit Glacier, Yellowstone, and the Black Hills while on the loop coming or going. We've done the Black Hills 3 times, YNP twice so they are not as critical as Glacier, and the other two NPs we've never visited.

At this juncture planning on leaving home mid-July for about 90 days or so.

It will be great to see you again! We really liked the Framily get together!

Wendy:
   I think we are going to try to go.  This would be our first FMCA rally.  We just joined FMCA last year.  How do we go about making reservations?  Can you give me some guidance here?  I am looking forward to meeting you.  Somehow I thought you were going to Moab, but I don't think I saw your name on the list?  :'(

Like Brewers, we signed up at the FMCA website. We're signed up for the handicapped, non-electric section. The Redmond facility is great. It can get hot in central Oregon during the day but it's almost always delightful at night.

Ken, yes we just signed up.  Glad you mentioned it because we didn't know about it.  We also asked to be put on the campground waitlist but the probability of getting in is not promising.  We signed up for 30-amp.  We haven't been to a Monaco rally for a long time and will really enjoy it.

They did last time. It was a farmer's field west of the highway. We were going to spend a night there but they took us on into the fairgrounds.

We are now registered for a 30 amp electric only site. I hope they have honey wagons and somewhere a long hose can reach for water. We are going to be at the Beaver pre-rally and will again be volunteering for security, so likely we will be parked in the volunteeer area.

Hope to see as many Framily as we can. We sure enjoyed it last year in Gillette.

Stan,
Let us hope the weather will be more conducive to gatherings in afternoons than those storms in Gillette!

We will be looking for information on a holding area where RVForum friends going into electric areas can gather prior to final rally parking so we can be closer together.

I checked with FMCA to be sure that we can meet in the holding area. See response below.
We will be arriving from the Monaco rally on the tenth and hope to get the group parked on the first day of parking on 8/11.

"Yes, you can meet up in the holding area. Please be sure to have a regular size notebook paper in the window of each coach and have a name, like Forum, on each and put 1 of 10, 2 of 10, etc.
Please write this in dark marker so our parkers can see it. It is also a good idea to have the same arrival date. 
If you want to give me the date and a list of those who have registered, I will make sure they all have the same arrival date.
I hope this helps.

We will be parking in a full hookup site on Sunday as we registered way early and are volunteers. Hope we can connect with the group some time, unlike our efforts in Gillette.

I thought the first day was on the 12th.  I have made some other reservations at Crater Lake for the 10th and 11th which means we won't get to Redmond until the 12th.  Does that mean we won't be parked with everyone else?   :'(

Steve,

I don't know how many of the others will want to go in early with us. But don't worry even if aren't parked with us we will all let each other know where we are parked and arrange Happy Hour somewhere. Others may want to go in later with you - I don't know, but typically we have gone in early to most rallies. Actually some will park in the handicap area and this rally dcmiller will be in full-hookups, so we won't all be together anyway.

Betty & I will be there on the 10th...

Steve

The group usually arrives the earliest entry day so we have a couple of days to visit, as it is pretty busy during the rally and we all do our own things.

We're also arriving the 10th.  We're going to the Monaco pre-rally.  The Monaco caravan leader said in an email that FMCA probably will have Bingo on Monday the 11th and perhaps Movie Night on Tuesday the 12th.

Steve, there's an old Monaco saying that if you arrive on time at a Monaco rally you're already late because they usually have events planned for the early arrivals.  The same is true of FMCA.  Also, the earlier you arrive the closer you will be parked to the main venues.

Liza, based on what was said earlier, we'll "probably" meet in the FMCA holding area - subject to change.

Here's who I have attending and when they expect to ARRIVE.  Are any other people from the RV Forum attending?  It looks like most of us will be in the electric area.

Brewers, Terry & Betty August 11
Dane, Bill (llib enad) & Raymonda -
Downs, Ray & Liza August 12
Falchini, Steve & Dee August 12

Our FMCA rally packet also arrived

Funny story,  We  resumed our mail delivery to Clark Fork, Id and informed Post office that we are now here and ready for  mail.  Couple of days later we go check our  mailbox for the expected packet.  The  mail box is  gone, missing, vanished!  Post there, mailbox no where in sight!  Who steals a mailbox? 

Turns  out once again the snow plow in winter has managed to throw snow and gravel at the box and it  was damaged beyond repair.  Neighbors arrived earlier than us, tossed ours  and now have theirs  replaced.  That's why our spot looked so lonely on the post.  New one ordered so I'm hoping we can get mail by Thursday!

There is also an RV Park in Metolious, OR.  We stayed there several years ago.  It is a basic park with few amenities.  The people that own the park are very nice and allowed us to use their dump after the rally at no charge.  Mt View RV Park  is about 20 or 30  miles from the fair grounds.  We plan on staying there to fill up and empty before the rally.  The only down side to this park is that is is right next to the rail road tracks and the trains ran once or twice a night while we were there.  But it is an okay place for a quick overnight.

Our packet just caught up to us. 8/12  PM is our move in time.
We had planned on going into the holding area on the 10th, but if it is in the 90's and we can't get in until the 12th to get power we may have to reconsider. We'll wait to see what the weather is.
Anyway we can all meet in the holding area. Anybody have General/electric with a date other than the 12th?

Daisy, when we lived on Vashon Island in WA state, we lost a mailbox to a baseball bat about every other month.  More often in nice weather!

Doesn't FMCA usually park caravans earlier if everyone is present and ready?  It seems to me we've gone in a day early in days past.  I suppose it also might depend on how busy the parkers are at any given time.

OK, revised plan for those arriving 8/11 (or before) for parking in the regular electric section.

It appears that most of us will arrive sometime before noon on August 11. We will meet in the holding area. Once we are all present we'll inform the parking crew that we are ready. I will give out windshield Tags for "RV FORUM ? of 5" (right now I count 5, but if more show that's great). Note: Terry is normally the leader, but he opted out for this rally so I am the substitute. I should be at the holding area early and will try to pick a visible spot so those arriving will see our coach.

Some of us actually have 8/12 arrival tags from FMCA, but in the past they have always just park rigs as they arrive -- so I am assuming we will get parked on the 11th.

Those parking elsewhere (handicap etc), please post your parking location. We will post where the group is parked.

See you all in Redmond.

We are volunteers and have full hookup parking.  I have received a sticker for E15, whatever that means, and will be arriving on the 10th.  We are tram volunteers but don't know our schedule yet.

Dave,

When are you leaving?  We are not sure but are  probably leaving for Portland either 9th or 10th do so we will be a few days behind you.  We couldn't schedule and make the rally work much as I wanted to make it.  Enjoy.

Jim,

We are heading out the 9th. Going up to Spokane and then down on the way and maybe back this way via a southern route. Don't know for sure how far we will go on the 9th. We will see what kind of driving mood I'm in I guess. Have to be there on the 10th though.

There are 5 RVForum  members who met today in the holding area to then be led as a group to a perfect location. We are in lot C 6th Street.  It is on the grass just steps from the entrance at South Sister Building.

We have never been parked this close.  This is heaven.  It is a bit toasty (86) but a nice breeze.
So Kuchs, Weimerts, Downs, Brewers and Fitzgerald's are present.  Thank you Ken for making our sign and waiting for us to arrive.

Rain and lightening spoiled my plans to attend the movie.  But I did make popcorn in our rig and Terry is finding me a movie for viewing in our coach.  Good news, the Fabric Guard I sprayed on our awnings have renewed the waterproof aspect of our awnings!

Thanks Wendy for the private conversation. Who will get up early for morning exercise?

Welcome Steve & Dee,

At 1:30 Accu Weather said the rain will end in 17 minutes.
The group is is lot C  6&7 street fairly close the Inner Circle Drive.
If you walk south on your street you will come to Inner Circle DR. Turn right to walk toward Lot C.
Also if you walk towards us on Inner Circle Dr you will come to an entrance to the Event Center. Go in and on your left will be North Sister bldg. In it is the FMCA information where you can exchange your "Locator" card (in your doc package) for your Arrival bag of information - including a map of the facility

Seems  Terry and Ray just had to show off their poles to see who had the  longest? Now they are equipped to clean airplane wings.

A beautiful Happy hour tonight. Stan  joined us as  Becky  negotiated with folks to replace her carpet with tile!  Sue and Bruce Purdy  joined us as friends from our FMCA 4 Wheeling group .  Friends of Ray and Liza  joined us as they search for their first  RV being former  live on board boaters.  Jerry  announced free  cocktails and  hor D'Oeurves being provided by Entegra Coach between 5:30 - 7. Ken and Sheila were both out and feeling well tonight.   Ramonda showed up with with  Bill and shared her  jewelry experience today  as did  Betty.   Steve and Dee came and shared the thrills they  are having with their first FMCA rally.  He continues to count years to retirement.  He is getting a new custom made mud flap.  We think it should say LIFE IS A JOURNEY but Dee needs convincing! Frank  purchased 4 new  batteries, ca ching! Henry bought a new step for Barb as he ran over the one she had out by her rig this morning.  Ray continued to provide me with  beer from his designer growlers.

We missed Mike and Wendy and all the rest of you who did not show up.  Life is good.

It was great to see everyone, albeit briefly. Next time, we'll get our security duties so they don't interfere with happy hour! Missed seeing Mike & Wendy. Perhaps another time! We enjoyed the rally, but after a week of conserving water, we are ready to move on! We parked last Sunday afternoon with 100 gallons of fresh, and this morning before showers we had 19. I know lots of you are old pros, but this was a major accomplishment for us!

Safe travels all,

Another Rally with  great friends.  I learned how to make wire wrap jewelry and purchased new microfiber cloths and new covers for leftovers but Sheila says they will never replace Saran wrap.
 I attended my first FMCA Governing Board meeting, so I learned lots about the inner workings of  our organization. I learned lots about Picassa and even joined  their member club to have access to ongoing support in managing my photos.  I learned how to  transfer photos from  my phone and Ipad to the  computer using Dropbox.  My brain needs a rest from so much learning! 

Terry bought lots of stuff and I'm sure he won in the spending department of this rally, though Frank's new  batteries were right up there.  But that is their story to tell.

See ya in Pomona March 2015.

At the last minute, the  FMCA rally and Fairgrounds gave permission to  spend another night on the premises , so we opted to spend another  night here.  Of course they  coiled up all of the electricity but we have a generator!

Terry wanted to watch his regular Sunday races so it was a perfect ending to a perfect week for us.  Many  people  opted to stay.  The sky got  black and pink around  9 pm and we  heard a bit of thunder but saw BIG lightening.  I managed to shop at Michaels and Walgreens before we  head back to Idaho in the morning with a stop at the John Day Dam on the way . Life is good.

Camera mystery solved.  The fellow who updated  Terry's Silver leaf gauge so it read new inverter,  left it here.  He had photos from 2011.

 Lesson learned... do not leave any photos on a camera  you may misplace.  Nothing  at all racy but just saying !

The rally continued in Junction City.  We had a great dinner with Ardra and Jerry on Sunday.  We then ran into Marty at Country Coach and had dinner with him on Monday night.  Love this no cooking stuff.  We'll see more of Marty this winter at Happy Trails in Phoenix.  Great rally and greater friends!

And nary a photo to prove it, but the full tummies told the tale!  If you like Chinese food, the Golden Chopstix in Harrisburg is really good.  They make all their own food including things like egg rolls.  It's in the same location as the old Vault or the later Outfitters restaurants on Smith Street across from the post office.  Excellent food and a nice family.

Well guys, I ended up with 6 new AGM batteries thanks to Frank. They were installed the Monday following the rally by the same company that did Frank's. They honored the show prices. So I don't know who spent what are the most but every time I make an FMCA Rally I end up making a deposit of $2,000.00 or more. We had a great time at the rally even though we stayed in Bend.

Sorry Henry, But Terry is still in the lead  as far as expenses. He bought a new Silverleaf  gauge to tell him everything ( according to him! )

Betty who bought some  things to cover left overs! $20.

Still don't think it's close (unless Terry bought the "Glass Dash")  and I'm not counting the tires I bought for the Motorhome, or Monaco Service center, or Cummins.

Geez Louise!  You guys are making me happy that we've finally hung up our keys!  Sounds like one of those "who spent the most on what" contests nobody really wants to win.   :D

We shoulda bought that new motorhome, then we'd have won.
