Hi All,

My wife and I attended the Pineknot Fest in TX and had decided to go from there to our winter getaway in Lake Wales, FL. As we were leaving TX, we began hearing about hurricane Wilma, and the projections for its entrance into FL had it going right over our trailer. So we decided to stop north of Tampa at the RCC Campground for a day or two to allow Wilma to get into the Atlantic.

As luck would have it, Wilma took 6 days to pass. Only rain and 20 mph wind made it as far north as we were, but we had a good chance to look over the campground. If you have been there before, you probably know what is to follow. If it is your first time, you are in for a treat.

Notes about Rock Crusher Canyon campground:

1. Sites are large -- set up for "Greyhound Bus" size campers. Lots of room for eggs, screen rooms, etc.

2. Hookup tower -- Distance from hookup tower at each site to the sewer hookup is rather large. If you wish to use their cable TV (included) you might want to consider at least a 16 ft. cable (or more). Also, the service is 50 amp. You will need the adaptor for 50-30 amp (available at WalMart or your local RV supply. You can rent them at the office of the campground, also. If you desire, there is also a 110V hookup in the tower, if you wish to use the 30A to 110V that you probably use at home.

3. Computer -- Wireless internet is available in the clubhouse. As an AOL user, I simply booted up the laptop, pushed the button on the front to enable the computer to recognize the wireless connection, selected internet explorer, and then typed in www.aol.com. It only took a couple of minutes and I was retreiving my email. If your campsite is close to the clubhouse, you may be able to connect from there.

4. Clubhouse -- In addition to the wireless internet, there is a screened in swimming pool, a hot tub, and a weight room in the clubhouse. Be sure to bring swimming suits, etc.

5. The only disadvantage I found in this campground was the number of anthills there seemed to be everywhere.

If you haven't been there before, you are in for a real treat -- this campground is first class all the way.

Stop by site 176 and say hi!

Hi

John and Carol -- any more news on RC3?

Anyone else coming?

(Actually, since there were no replies since 12/7 I wanted to bring RC3 back up to the first page!)

I stopped by the office on 1/16 and got the latest trailer count for the Rally. As of this morning we had 40 registered, so it looks like it's going to be another great time.

We'll be in site 174 from 3/2 through 3/6.

Each site has 50 amp or 20 amps. We got by the last two years on the 20 amps but if you need 50 amps Rock Crusher rents adapters at $3.00 a night. they sell them for $26.50, but I know that Walmart and RV stores sell them for less. Just want to give everyone a heads up.

Ron and Dan have a kayak trip planned, probably Friday, Ron and John will host the flea market Saturday morning, and Ron has a device to check hitch weights on Saturday afternoon. More plans are in the works and we'll keep everyone updated. I'm working on a list of area attractions also.

Lynda Freed has volunteered to host a craft class on Saturday afternoon. She has two crafts that she will teach and each one takes about an hour.

1. "Seedy Fish" (Literally CD Fish) -- Using two AOL disks and craft foam, these cute light catchers spin in the wind -- neat decoration for the awning.

2. ICE apples -- Using fabric and various other materials, a small apple is made. The center of the apple is a roll of toilet paper. This could be kept in the trailer as a decoration, or for use ICE (In Case of Emergency) when the T.P. runs out

She has enough material for about 30-40 people. A $1.00 donation to cover material and any can tabs from aluminum cans would be appreciated. If you are interested in this class, please email me at cdunning_2000@yahoo.com.

The one disappointment was they don't supply fire wood anymore. We had nice campfires last year and the year before and I was looking forward to doing it again this year. If anyone attending can bring firewood it would be appreciated.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone in March.

Carol and John

I'll be there too with my MKP (aka the Roly-Poly), and believe it or not it will be our maiden (finally!) voyage.
By the by... this is an all fiberglass rally, right? Not just Casita?
I'm coming anyway, I enjoyed meeting a lot of folks last year at Rock Crusher when I went with my friend Alice Boysen (she's got a 13' Casita and just bought a 17' Casita).
After that RC2, I bought my MKP and have been trying to update it and get on the road since. Ready or not, here I come.
Looking forward to coming and participating
See you there!

Yes, Rally is for any fiberglass trailer or anyone interested in looking at fiberglass trailers. Campground calls it Casita Rally and it's easier to make sure we all get sites together. Glad you will be joining us again this year.

Remember, you do not have to own a Casita to attend the rally. However, do mention that you are a part of the Casita rally in order to obtain the lower rate.

Hi Everyone,

We're getting the plans together for the schedule of activities for RCIII and are just waiting for a response from an area business about speaking on Friday.

These are the plans so far:

Thursday 3/2 - A get together for early arrivals. We can gather on the pool deck area about 7:00 p.m. like we did last year. Bring snacks and your own beverage.

Friday 3/3 - Kayak trip planned at 9:00 a.m. There is a separate thread to sign up for this with Ron and Dan.

Friday 3/3 - 3:30 p.m - 5:00 p.m. Gathering at the clubhouse, hopefully will have a rep to speak, if not general discussion of problems and solutions

Friday 3/3 - 7:00 p.m. Get together at campfire site. If weather is a problem, we'll use the clubhouse. If you can bring any firewood, it would be greatly appreciated.

Saturday 3/4 - 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Flea Market at Clubhouse hosted by Ron and John

Saturday 3/4 12:00 p.m.- 2:00 p.m. Craft session hosted by Lynda Freed. If anyone wants to do some knitting, this might be a good time for that also.

Saturday 3/4 - Trailer tours and visiting and Ron has a device to check hitch weights and can do this at your site

Saturday 3/4 5:00 p.m. -6:30 p.m. Potluck dinner in clubhouse. If everyone would bring enough food for 6-8 people we should be in good shape.

Saturday 3/4 7:00 p.m. - Get together at campfire site.

Sunday 3/5 - 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Potluck breakfast in clubhouse. We will have coffee available.

There will be a list of area attractions posted shortly for those who will be arriving to the area early or staying longer. If there is anything in particular you are interested in, please let me know.

We're looking forward to lots of fun and another great rally this year. Whoever has Harold, the pink flamingo, please don't forget to bring him. See everyone in March.

Carol and John

Is it possible to drop in without actually camping? We're thinking of just making a day trip to see some 13-footers.

I want to come but I will have to wait and try to get reservations at the the last minute. This will be my very first if I make it.

Susan Tiller & Louise,

Susan, to my understanding there were 100 sites allocated for the RCIII rally. There should be plenty sites still available.

Louise, yes, you can visit without camping. Drop in and don't be a stranger. Don't wait for any introductions or formalities. There are none. Just say hello and ask to see as many fiberglass trailers as possible. Also, ask questions and feel free to participate in any and all campground activities. It is a fun packed activity.

Seems the floor (wood rot) damage is a little more extensive than I thought. On advise of the RV repair guy, the Roly-Poly won't make it to Florida.
Hopefully the repairs will be done by April.
I wish you all lots of fun and fair weather , and for sure I'll be there next year.
Denise
