Cherokee Rally

Jane & Greg, We appreciate your invite to get acquainted. I guess you will be the kickoff event! Just revised the roster....28 Eggs/49 people.
Hope everyone saw the coupon on the Happy Holiday website for a free bundle of firewood on check-in. If you didn't go online and print it out. Looks like we will enjoy/need some good campfires.

See y'all soon!
Linda

Maybe we'll see you on the way. We're heading up Friday morning too, from the Sharpsburg, GA area.

Next year?

We had a great time meeting all you folks and hope to see y'all there again next year.

Pretty sure Jean she is willing to organize the 2013 Rally. She is talking about some "tweeking" of the schedule to make things flow even better. She worked hard on this event and me thinks it turned out well. I believe this was her first time to organize something like this from scratch. Especially hard as she lives in Florida.

Hoping to get started earlier in the planning stages for next year, so folks will have more time to plan.

I didn't do a count, but understand there were 30-32 Trailers and a couple of cabins involved. Two of the campers showed up at the last minute, that we didn't expect.

Of course the weather was great. Special thanks to Jane and Greg (site 89) for hosting the "meet-n-greet" Thursday evening. They had a wonderful spread of finger foods, and were great hosts. . .

Twenty people went to breakfast at Granny's Restaurant Friday morning.

We had several people visit us that don't own eggs. Some were from larger campers that were staying there, and some had come for the express purpose of learning why we are so excited about our chioce of camping trailer. .

Might be helpful if everyone makes sure that Jean has your E-Mail addresses, so we can be the first to know of dates for the next one, before it is announced on these forums.

Ann and I plan on one more trip before winterizing. We will be going to Georgia Veterans State park sometime early November.

Hope all remain safe and happy untill we meet again.

Thanks,
Kip

Nice job Jean! Daisy and I had a great time and enjoyed meeting everyone! Although we caught no fish, we'll get them next time! We've got one more journey before winter lock down to Service COE Camp in Silas, AL right before Thanks Giving. Gonna try some coal cooked Turkey and/or Hens. However will have microwave back up...

Shameless plug... Hope to see you all at the GE&H III event in Camden AL on 14 -17 March 2013. Travel safe; stay alert; and see ya next year.

Best wishes... Shorty sends...

Hi Ms Jane and Mr. Greg,
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and you are enjoying St. Augustine.
It's a great little city, full of history, as you know. My brother lives up there but I'm down south near Homestead FL, about 375 miles or so.

I just returned from having Thanksgiving down in Flamingo (Everglades Natl. Park) with my CT. It was great down there but not quite as glorious as the Smokies was!If you plan a stop down towards the Keys
(difficult to get a reservation down there because of the season) please let me know and I'll hitch it up and go!

I recently installed the little Curtis TV, like you and George had, and love
it's out of the way place behind the sink on a wall mount. I also installed a hide-a-way antenna which seems to work pretty good. In addition I got one of those great Camping World outside mats that fits under the awning nicely. Thanks to you, Greg, George and his wife for the neat ideas!!

Nice to hear from you and Happy UHaulin!

Hi Mr. Mini Cooper Pulling Uhaul Camper Don! I sent you a pm but I think I did the bad thing and responded directly it, so I received a message from the Gestapo telling me I did it not the right way, Or did you get it?? I asked if you might be interested in curtains I had made before I "reglamped?" Also, Greg is interested in how you attached the rv mount and what mount you used.... We had a Grand first time camping in your state... Home now...

Curtains

Ms. Jane,
Glad the Florida trek was a good one. I never received a PM from you
so it must have done a boomerang or something....

Those curtains look almost like original colors and I would be interested.
I'll PM you after I write this.

The space between the outer shell and the inner shell is very close, like less than 1/2" in the area where the mount needs to be. It is just forward of the rear window beginning at the top of the sink counter. After trial and error I finally decided on 3/32" sheet metal, riveted to several longer pieces to help redistribute the weight vertically, with t-nuts installed that mated up to the wall mount bracket. I tolerance fitted the t-nuts and then peened them over so they would not turn. I had to retap them as this tightened the threads too much. The hardest part was getting it into position and I finially had to fish it up to the holes w/mechanic's wire (had to do all this from below the sink as wires interferred trying to go in from the cabinent above and there is tight working quarters down there.

Heres a pic that shows I also painted the assembly and used Marine Tex (like JB weld) to back up the t-nuts so they would not turn. Spot welding would have been better but I did not want to pull my welder out of storage. I'll take a pic of the final install and get back to you and Greg.

Don, what did you use for your power supply? The TV is 12 V, did you use the light power that powers the light? Or did you fish the TV plug down the side? I assume you put the power cord and cable thru the top. The curtains and bed spread are free, just pay the postage. Greg
