Just took a glance at the 2012 Rally Calendar looking for other Rallys close enough to attend and did not see our Rally listed or posted on the map???

This and that!

FWIW: The gray area between 88 and 89 is simply a grassy area. Nothing on it. So whomever is on 88, Congratulations, you will have a nice size front yard.

There is no fire pit there. If we want to have a community fire pit for any reason, there is a new one near the Rec Bldg.

Also, according to the HH manager, Janie, the back creek, most everyone is reserverd on, has a lot larger flow than last year. Seems water was being diverted to the front creek near the road, as we experienced last year.

She said heavy spring rains have re arranged the diversion and the back creek is now larger than it was, and folks are beginning to catch fish from it.

She also said that someone in our group is reserved on the front creek, to the right when entering the park.

Well, I think I just added it to the calendar and I sent an email asking that the rally be added to the rally map. We'll see.

Its on the map now. Sorry I missed the confirmation announcement of the meet as it was buried in an old thread which up until a couple of weeks ago was only discussing the possibility of a rally.

Here are the names and numbers so far:
Kip & Ann (GA) #922
Don & Joyce (FL) D72 & cabin
George & Rhonda (NC) D81
John & Elizabeth (VA) D82
John & Marilyn (GA) D83
Steve (SC) D84
Cathy (FL) D85
Chuck & Kyle (OH) D87
Dick & Muriel (FL) D88
Jane & Greg (SC) D89
Jean (FL) D90
Lynne & David (TN) D91
LindaLee (GA) D92

I count 13 trailers (a baker's dozen) & 1 cabin, with 22 people. We're going to have a great line up on the back creek, the Egg Parade should be a lot of fun and easy to get from one trailer to another. I have no idea who is in site D86 but I have a feeling if they don't have an egg they will feel really weird so we'll have to be sure they are comfortable with all the eggs rolling in around them.

I've been wondering about D86 for a while now. they may decide they want an egg, too!

Last year started out kind of rough for us.

We drove 5+ hours in some pretty severe rain to get there. When we arrived it was still raining pretty hard. Of course the dogs needed to be walked. By the time we got inside the camper, We were wet, the dogs were wet and the Casita (Casy) was wet. To add insult to injury we were parked under trees next to the creek and it was hard to distinguished between the creek noises and the heavy rain on top of Casy.

I went out to finish setting up, when the rain slacked off. Casy had attracted a bunch of wet leaves. As had the Honda Ridgeline. They both looked to be wearing "Camouflage" for all practical purposes.

This was our first rally in 20+ years and we were wondering if it was going to be a dismal one. By late afternoon the rain stopped completely.
Time for the dogs to go out again. When we got outside, folks were walking around and finishing their setting up.

From that point on, things just got better and better. No more rain, and the sun appeared. We had a wonderful time and met some great folks. The leaves were magnificant in color.

Looking real forward to this one.

Kip

Welcome Maynard & Jacquie! It will be great to meet you, too! I think we'll have a great time.

I'm going to throw this out now, if anyone plays an instrument like a guitar, dulcimer, harmonica, etc. feel free to bring it. I play the autoharp a little and would enjoy playing with other folks, but I'm not prepared to be the leader of that endeavor. I think it would be another way have some fun.

Kip,

I like your funny little description of last years outing; there's just something about the smell of a wet dog inside a small camper!
This sounds similar to our last two outings, the latest being this weekend. We dicided to take the two youngest of our four grandchildren on their first camping excursion. It rained so hard in route that I had to pull over to the side of the road for some 20 minutes till it slacked down, continuing on the sun came out and the road dried. Just completed setting up camp and yes you guessed it here came the rain; difference was we kept our dog dry, but the kids stayed out and played and had a FUNTASTIC time.

Jean,
Really enjoyed your playing at Green Eggs 'n Ham. I'm a good listener, but I don't play an instrument and if I was to sing everyone would leave. I do enjoy sitting around the campfire and listening to you guys, though!! I'll bring the cookies!

Yep! Wet dog smell in a closed up camper has a charm of it's very own.
We bring along two of the little tykes so the smell is in stereo!

Jean's 2 are too well bred and too well mannered to have an odor.

Linda's pup is a big girl! When she exits the camper, it is like sitting and watching a train go by, and anticipating the appearance of the caboose.

BTW: Linda visits exotic lands and cultures. Could she be persuaded to demonstrate some of their native dance culture, while Jean accompanies on the autoharp? (Applaud)

Pick on me and I won't bring you back a "Circe".
