cherokee rally

Jane & Greg, thanks for hosting a meet & greet Thursday evening.

Kip, excellent idea about the index cards! Thanks

Time is flying! 2 weeks from now some of us will be in Cherokee. I'm looking forward to this event.

We are up to 24 trailers and 40 adults. Shorty(AL) is now going to have site #82 and John & Elizabeth (VA) have changed to a 900 number site for full hookups.

We would like to come and participate in the rally on Oct. 12-14th. We will be in bunkhouse 1 as we do not have our FGRV yet. I was greatly disappointed that we will not be receiving the rally discount or AARP discount as the person I spoke with said that was only for RVs. ($50 a night for a bunkhouse? You gotta be kidding!) The rally is the only reason we are staying there, for goodness sakes! Our dog, Shopcoat, a golden retriever wanna be is coming with us. Count us in on the potluck and gift exchange. We are so eager to meet and greet and pick your brains on all that is involved with this lovely hobby of traveling in a FGRV. We just retired as in yesterday, and are eager for some new adventures.

You may find the cabin to be just fine and it is probably less expensive than staying at a motel somewhere down the road.

There will be plenty of trailers to see and owners to talk with that is for sure. You can look at your rental fees as an investment/learning expense and maybe they will be the last time you have to rent a cabin for a long time.

This is a bunkhouse, not a cabin, but yes, it is our fault in waiting so long to commit. All the cabins are taken.

Jean is "Spot on"!

It will surely be a lot cheaper than purchasing a trailer that might not work out for ya. Then taking a loss on resale.

So many things to consider when purchasing a camper. Such as type and size of tow vehicle (AKA-TV or TUG). How much room you need or want, fuel mileage when towing, etc..

Wonderful to be able to stay a couple of days and at least one night, to get to know the trailer types as well as the people types that own them.

One thing is pretty much for certain. And you can gather this from the, different Posts on this forum. Although we come from all walks of life with various life styles at home, when we gather as a group of "Egg" owners the friendliness is addictive.

Cherokee rally

Well said Kip.

This rally 3 years ago was my first rally and certainly not the last. I've met great friends from distant parts of the country and some more local. We have varied interests and those seem to enhance our get togethers.

Jean and Kip, I agree completely. The friendliness of practically everyone on the forum is amazing! And if the campground is even half as pretty as the pictures make it look, we are in for a great time on several different levels. I was ready to sign up 2 months ago, but DH had some things to get behind him before he could think to things ahead.

Hello All,

I hope it's not too late to sign up. I just bought a 13' Scamp back from Backus to NC and need to break it in! I'm looking forward to my first Rally.

Best,
Chesley

Hi Chelsey,

Absolutely not too late.

Please make your reservation and let Jean know your site number and your intentions concerning the pot luck and gift exchange.
You can do that with a PM to her, an e-mail to her, or posting it here.

Remember to tell the Folks at Happy Holiday you are part of the "EGG" rally so to get the 20% discount.

Congratulation on the new baby. New hatchling FGRVs are so cute before we break out the chain saws and make mods. Looking forward to seeing it and meeting you.

When will you be arriving? Will you be bring any furry companions?

Kip

Can't make rally

Dear friends,

I am sad to say that I have had to change my plans and will not be attending the rally. I canceled my reservation for site # 85 today. Disappointed that we can not come. Just can't have the camper travel worthy in time. I look forward the next opportunity to meet you all some time in the future.

Cathy

Thanks Kip,

Jane, I have site #75, but have been given a choice to change it if I don't like it and another site presents itself.

I'll do the pot luck. I'm a really bad cook so you all will have to take your chances! I'll also participate in the gift exchange.

Kip, I'll be coming in on Thursday afternoon. The furry companion I might bring depends on whether the scamp picks up a mouse between now and then.

Cathy,

Sure sorry to learn you and Sebastian won't be able to attend.
Always kind of scary to take a camper on it's first outing, especially
if ya know everything isn't as good as it can be.

Hope to see you next year or maybe at another rally or campground, sooner.

The Green Eggs & Ham rally is in March in Middle Alabama. That might be one for you to strive for. It was a lot of fun last year and our first time there. And the Scamp folks have rallies in Florida. scampers : Scampers

Don't forget that there is lots of help on these forums for fixin up a camper.

Kip
