I'm thinking about it, looking around in finding a nicer cg more central to everyone that attended. any suggestions would be welcome by you or any of the other's who attended the rally this year or those that did not attend but wished they had!!!

Hi Jim,
We attended the Pocono rally and enjoyed it very much. Have been looking at State Parks
in Penn, check out Promised Land St Pk, they have electric and allow pets on some loops.
You can reserve up to 11 months in advance, which is a long time but they do have some sort of cancellation policy. Hope another rally can be planned.
Ann

Mid-Atlantic Egg Fest 2012

Several persons have contacted me who attended the Poconos rally this year in July, inquiring about next year. So I'm starting a new thread to get ideas for location and when, this is your rally and everyone should feel that they are participants. So feel free to post ideas here and we can start planning.

I checked with Promised Land SP, real nice location and Pickeral Point is a peninsula which would seem to be really nice. I called and the park is renovating that area and it will not reopen until next spring. So that is one option here is a link http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/statepar...rfield_pdf.pdf

Restaurants in Amsterdam South End

Tim,

At the Eggfest we told you about sone great places to eat in Amsterdam. I think that they were pretty hard hit in the flooding of the Mohawk. If you were thinking of taking a fall ride this way let us know but check to see how they are recovering from the storm first.

Take Care,
Mike and Ann

We had a great time as well. Definitely must repeat it. We are checking out a beach campground in NJ this week. Although they do not have enough sites to accomodate our rally, they cater to more seasonal folks.

One thing I liked about the Pocono Koa was the large open area, it was great to have us all there with plenty of space. Does anyone know of another place with as much open space?

What about some spots in New York? We will have a new Tug by then and can make the trip....learned our current truck does not have a transmission cooler so upgrading in the spring.

Would anyone around the NJ/PA area want to meet up for a campout soon?

Don and Brenda

If it's not stock from the manufacturer, this is a fairly simple and inexpensive add-on! Transmission Coolers (when compared to buying a new tug)

Me thinks it is an "excuse" to obtain a new tow vehicle rather than a necessity. Right Don?

Thanks Donna, My tug is 10 yrs old, but only 58K on it...It was my father's and he didn't drive much. IT is a 2001 V6 Toyota Tacoma and I talked with Toyota and they said one can't be added, it was an add-on at the point of manufacture.

Jim, it is part of the excuse, the other is I am really interested in the safety features of the newer Tundra's, I would like the anti sway stuff and the increased Tongue load capacity given the heavy casita's.

But that is not till the spring so I will keep checking on things. Thanks again

Don and Brenda

That one sounds like a good place. We enjoy the state parks wherever we go.

Jim,
Looks like Promised Land would be a good choice. We stayed there one night on one of our return trips from Florida. It's a nice park.

Hi cpaharley,
Hope all had a lovely Labor Day weekend.
Regarding campground selection for a rally, we need to think of certain requirements
such as showers, flush toilets, electric and pets. It's seems that at Promised Land CG only certain loops allow pets (beechwood and northwoods loops). I realize it's hard to find a perfect campground but we still keep trying don't we.

I agree, that is why I called the cg because the Pickeral Point stated that pets were allowed in certain areas. That is when I found out that cg is closed for renovation to be reopened next summer with new facilities and supposedly the entire cg will allow pets. I will follow up on that info to confirm. Until then everyone keep making suggestions so that we can have a list to choose from.

We also had a great time and look forward to seeingnyou all next summer. Promised Land is a well maintained PA CG. One point would be once the date gets posted, do not wait to book your spot

I contacted Promised Land SP and their cg is being renovated, not reopening until next May, 2012. They do not know which sites will have pets/electric/ to date. I then looked at World's End SP, but they seem small.
Here is my thought, I think we need a pool and something for the children. Also wi/fi and cable would be nice. That said, I'm throwing out another place. We went to a real nice one last weekend, Burnt Cabins Grist Mill but there is no pool, but there is a playground. Good home made sandwiches also. Rates are less than $30.
Another option with pool and nice shaded spots we have been to is Williamsport South / Nittany Mtn. KOA | Camping in Pennsylvania | KOA Campgrounds
a little more expensive- about $40 night- but KOA's always have clean restrooms, cable/wi/fi and normally a well stocked store. This place is Noelia's favorite when she was doing chemo, very relaxing (that is why we got into camping, during her therapy we needed some respite).
Anyway, let me your thoughts and possible alternatives. We could 2 rally's, an early one in the spring at the KOA and a late fall one at the other location when the leaves start turning.

Jim, My vote would be we go to the Nittany Mtn KOA, for the rally, July seemed really nice and maybe we can offset it with Bolerama....get more attendees and types of trailers.

I would love a fall rally too, perhaps October at the Burnt Cabins Grist mill.

I do think I would need to break in the new tug in April by holding a "scouting mission" and previewing these again with you or any other interested people.

So just to Sum it up, KOA in July a week after Bolerama, and Grist Mill in October.

Thanks again for planning this
