Gary:

When you get a site reserved how about letting us know the number for us to get nearby.

We have a reservation but no site number. The Georgia Park System generally does not reserve by site number, just by quanity of sites of a particular type/size.   Site selection is first come, first served, as Joel stated.  Nancy & I will arrive on the 19th and look around for a likely-looking site, preferably with numerous vacant sites near by. The rest of you will have to look for our rig or ask for our site number when you register.

Hi Gary,

Unfortunately we have made other plans for that time in October. We will be sorry to miss your rally as it is always a great time. Hope to see you during the winter!

Gary,

Just made our reservations. Will be coming in on the 20th and leaving on the 26th. Will be at the end of a long trip to Texas, so will be ready to decompress (before getting home to hundreds of emails)!

I'll bring it up to the committee.  (Jolene)  That is actually within striking distance for us, although we wouldn't be able to stay the whole time. 

Trying to get away a couple days each month to keep my pancake flipping up to snuff.

Great, Bill. Would love to see you folks and have an opportunity to get to know you two better. I think the last (and first) time we met was in Scarborough, Maine in 2000? There was such a large gang there I don't think we ever got to talk.
Title: Re: 2006 Southeast Fall Rally Plans
Post by: PancakeBill on July 26, 2006, 11:52:07 AM
Back in Maine we only got talked about, as in, when will Bill & Jolene get here?  My golks were there, and our plan was to be there, but I was in the midst of a software conversion that wasn't going well.  Bunch of hardware problems, some worker resistance etc and I never saw a day off that entire month. 

So, if we can make it, it will be our first meeting.  We have hooked up with some of the folks at outher NE get togethers however.

Now I have t check the daye once more, I was just scheduled for a factory tour at Tiffin on the 11, 12th of Oct.  Now to go back and figure these dates.

Just chkd (9:20pm Saturday the 16th and they say they have sites available starting the Oct 20 for 5 nites....I think that take us to the 25th  (last day of rally.  We will decide in the next day or so....
Our US-2 trip from Mich. to W. State and then down 101 has been cancelled for this year by my gall blader.  I am going to get that thing out on the 19th.  I want to get it before it gets me again.
Our daughter is finishing up ...pray, pray pray....her Phd and is still in Athens, Ga.   So we would just drive from Mich to Ga. for a mini vacation and visit her AND OUR NEW 4 mo. GRANDDAUGHTER on the way home.
Joanne is thinking...and so am I.    Stay tuned.
Do I have the number of nights right??????????

Thanks for doing all the planning....

Gary,

Well, sorry to say we will not be at this years Southeast Fall Rally.  Joanne is flying down to Athens, Ga. for a 10 day visit soon so can't justify coming down again (1800 miles round trip) just a few weeks later.  Will probably look at the fall colors along the shore of Lake Michigan instead and kick some beach sand.

Hope you have good weather and a great rally.

Maybe we will come down in January or Fedruary and check out those barrier islands.  Have never been there.

Sorry you guys won't make it - it was  a treat to have you last fall.  Oh well, now we get to talk about you!  ;D

Post by: Len and Jo on September 27, 2006, 07:57:57 PM
Man how plans change and change and change.  I went in on the 19th for a 'simple' gall bladder operation.  Four small holes out in 4 hours....  Operation when OK but after a day at home I was in E.R. for 7 hours and then in a ICU unit for 3 days.  Reacted to two different anti-biodics and have small clot on lung.   Can't think of what it would be like if one was on the road and have this happen.  Much nicer at home with family, friends, and large hospital.  I am sure there are some "good" road stories out there and how to handle them.  We could have been in some small town in the mountains along U.S.-2. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Was that Len or Jo? Sure sounds like a nightmare. Glad you are home near friends and relatives.

Hi Tom,

Oh I see by the way we sign you can't tell Jo from Len.  It was me, Len who had the attack.  I was the one who thought he was in ER for 2-3 hours but it was Jo who really knew that I was there from 6am to 3pm.  So, it was my body but her mind.  I am really starting to feel very good now.  I do look like an overblown tractor innnertube but that will (AND IS) passing.  ::)  I went in weighing 200 lbs and came home weighing 229 lbs :o :o :o :o  I can hear the ocean serf breaking when I move. They really pumped me full of liquids to get my pressure up.

Hi Len,

Glad you are recovering. Things certainly can change in an instant. Back in '90 I went in for gall bladder surgery, came home for three days and was back in the emergency room with the most severe pain I had ever encountered. After 10 hours of testing they determined it was a perferated ulcer. Hope that never happens again!!!!

The RVForum's 2006 SOUTHEAST FALL RALLY will be held at SKIDAWAY ISLAND STATE PARK in SAVANNAH, GA. The rally starts Friday, October 20 and ends Oct 25[/b

I don't know if this is of any interest to rally goers (or any time really) but the community of Sun City Hilton Head in Bluffton, SC is just 6 miles from SC I-95 exit  8 ( ~40 miles from Skidaway) and has its own small RV "park". It's actually 6 full service (s/w/e (50amp only)) sites within the RV and Boat Club storage facility which includes a covered RV washing facility. The price is $20/night. One can get a reservation either by a homeowner (me) or by calling the Pulte Sun City Sales Office and saying one wants to use park while looking at community.    Please PM me if interested and I will check availabilty (it gets full this time of year ) and supply further details.

Leaning towards Bikefest.  Closer.  This way we will be closer to Titusville and can pitch our tent in Jim' yard.

Title: Re: 2006 Southeast Fall Rally Plans
Post by: PancakeBill on September 30, 2006, 11:29:34 AM
Plus, I have Th-Fr-Sa off.  If we came I would have to drive TH, stay there Fr and leave Sa.  Oh well, maybe next time.

Bill,

Would let you pitch your tent but you'd have to get the 5er first. No slide-ins allowed. Don't know why but they also ban popups. Perhaps Dad would let you use the Bounder!!!

I knew that, I was just messin.  Besides, I'd have to push my bike in, right?  Plus I really meant tent.  Just a tent.  maybe a nice bonfire at night...  (G)

I lost track, will you be back by then?

You can now ride into the commercial area and they are supposed to build a new staging area near the commercial area. Tents and bonfires are out. ;D I plan on leaving the bike here for the winter. It appears I have a problem with my left shoulder which might require an operation. That will put me out of commission for most of the winter. I'll have more time trying to figure out how to carry it or a larger one on the coach. I'm probably going to look into trading the car for a mid-size pickup.

No, we won't be back until the first part of November.

This thread was getting a bit congested with off topic chatter, so the Fall Rally Location, time, etc. info has been moved to Fall Rally Info Thread (http://www.rvforum.net/SMF_forum/index.php?topic=7488.0)
