I noticed this morning that the 2015 St. George Rally is posted on the FMCA web page. I made reservations for my first FMCA Rally at the Temple View RV Resort this morning.

Jeff and I are interested in attending this rally. I tried looking for it on the FMCA web page but couldn't find it. Can you please post a link?

What are the dates of this rally?

Thanks,

October 25, 2015 to October 31, 2015
Temple View RV Park

It is in the membership section under Upcoming Rallies. There is no RSVP yet on the FMCA page, I just sent a reservation request to the RV Park to reserve a space. I have not yet received a confirmation for my reservations.

John, Do you mean the FMCA 4 Wheeling web page? We attended the  pre rally last year and it was a blast.

Yes, sorry about that, it is on the FMCA 4-Wheeling Page. I just got my confirmation back from Temple View RV Resort too...Yaahoo.

John, that is great news.  Chrystal and I just joined the FMCA 4-Wheelers a couple of months ago and we have that week off from work and are planning on attending.  I have not made our reservations @ Temple View yet but will in the near future.

That's awesome Mike, it is looking like a fun year is beginning to take shape. Steve & Dee need to buy a Jeep and join the FMCA 4-Wheelers too.

I agree.  Steve talked about a while back.  He and I even exchanged a few emails concerning what to look for in a  Jeep but I am not sure what kind of time frame he was looking at.

Your right about it looking like a fun year though, Chrystal and I are really looking forward to this coming RVing season.

I am getting excited to see your Jeep, it appears to be shaping up nicely.

Just out of curiosity the website shows the rally dates being October 25- October 31, 2015.  That is a Sunday thru Saturday.  Do most of you leave on Saturday or does the rally go thru Saturday and leave on Sunday morning?

Another question, does the rally activities actually begin on Sunday or does everyone arrive on Sunday.

Sorry, I don't know how the FMCA 4 Wheelers rallies go and just want to be certain so we don't arrive late or leave early.

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Sunday is registration.  Trails Monday through Saturday.  Usually we take Thursday off.  Most folks leave on Sunday.

Mike, if you ever go to a Monaco rally you're considered late if you arrive the first scheduled day!  They generally have things happening ahead of time - gifts, local tours, and other unknowns so we arrive the day they open for parking.  Some of the FMCA rallies also have early events such as Bingo night, movie night, etc.

Mike,

A typical rally would have Sunday as a registration day. MTW trails rides TH is a  Day Off Friday and Saturday trail rides. Go home on Sunday.  Watch the website and read the upcoming newsletter for specifics.  Since the rally is still months away, specific details won't be available just yet.

I know I may have jumped the gun a bit but I just got off the telephone with Temple View RV Park and made our reservations for the October Rally.

Chrystal and I got our coach out of storage on Saturday due to the place we were storing it no longer offering storage.  Once we got it home Chrystal put a couple new rugs that we got for Christmas in it and we started getting excited about this upcoming RVing season.  We have a lot of fun trips planned and look forward to seeing everyone on the road.

I'm totally jazzed. I finally signed up and paid for my first FMCA 4 Wheelers rally. I told my wife that if for any reason under the sun that I don't make this one...I selling the coach  ::).

I just paid for the St George rally this morning as well. Reservations were made at Temple View months back. We plan to arrive a week early for the pre-runs. Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Hey guys, correct me if I'm wrong, but about two weeks ago the FMCA 4 Wheelers website stated the rally shopping cart for the St. George rally would be open starting August 31st.  I had it written down to pay for ours tomorrow.  Is it already open to pay for the rally?

You're one day off Mike, it was always scheduled to open on the 30th. I see on the Monoco form you got your Norcold removed, now on to the cabinet remodeling.

Ok, sorry, my bad I must have written the date down wrong.  I just paid and we are good to go for the rally.

Gary, yes, I removed my Norcold refrigerator yesterday and I am on my way outside to the coach now to fill in the top vent and see how I am going to build the sub-floor up to the correct height.  Fridge is due to be delivered on Tuesday.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at St. George and run some trails.

Just out of curiosity on the question about what rated trails do you want to run, what did y'all (sorry, still talking Texan after this past spring's rally) ;D put down?  I chose the 3.0-3.5 but in the comment box I put 2-3.5 trails.

On the form I put 3-3.5 rated trails, but in actuality I'll be running 2-3 rated trails this year. I want to challenge myself, but not my equipment so much, if that makes sense. I've been going out on the trails with a local Jeep club with some regularity and so I feel confident up to a 3.5...well, kind of.

As amazing as it is to me, it looks like I'll make the FMCA 4 Wheeler's Rally that begins one-week from today. Sadly the business is booming so my wife will not be making the trip, much to her chagrin. I've been looking forward to this rally for some time now, I am jazzed. I'm making the trip to the Bar 10 Ranch on Thursday and Friday, North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

The weather has been wet so the trails will be new to some degree, the dust a bit settled, and the red mud prevalent. .The long term forecast has the weather cooperating during the rally

We had planned to arrive this past Friday, but after a breakdown in WY, and now sitting at Cummins in West Valley City,UT for an apt tomorrow it looks like we won't be there until Tues. Should still have time to pre run some trails. See everyone soon.

John, good to hear you are going to make it to the rally.  We will see you there.

Gary, that sucks.  What's wrong with the coach?

For some reason our coach turned over 100k miles this year and we have had to put a little more time and money into her than normal.  Oh well, I think ours is ready to roll again so we will see everyone on Sunday, hopefully late morning or noonish time frame.

It has been a very fun week, I've met a few forum members face-to-face, and I have been duly impressed with the professionalism of the club members. As the week winds down I am looking forward to the next get together. I really enjoyed the week.

I am discovering the call of the road by hanging out with full timers. Good people, and a good way to live...IMHO.

Well a great FMCA 4-Wheelers rally has come and gone. Chrystal and I had a great time and we really enjoyed seeing out RVForum friends. It was good to see Frank & Barb, Gary & Darlene, John and Bill from the forum. We are already looking forward to seeing everyone at the next rally.
