    We went. It's always fun to browse. We stopped by the booth for the VA State Parks. They were giving out 10% off coupons. Yeah! There's another show in Richmond next month and one in Fredericksburg in March. We'll probably try to swing by one or both of those.

    Husband's new job starts later this month and they're indicating a heavy work travel schedule. Hope to find out soon whether we'll be able to make the rally.

    only 12 sites left. Since there is very low support for this rally i was trying to have 10 rallys then stop. This will be my last Virginia Rally. It does not make sense for me do all work and not have a good turn out. Thank you to everyone who has come to the last 7 Rallys i have hosted. It has been enjoyable meeting new people and make new life long friends!!!!!! See you in May.

    Finally able to make my reservation today. Since I am off on Thursdays and I live only an hour from the park, I am going down on Thursday. I may go home for a while on Friday for my sons soccer game. Looking forward to the rally. This will be my first rally.

    I m looking forward to the rally. How does this work? I am guessing that sometime on Saturday we fix our food and then bring it to a designated area for a cover dish meal setting. Do we cook at our camp sites or do we cook at a shelter. I do not have a table to cook on, so I will be using the fire pit. How much food do you normally fix? I have two camp dutch ovens and a regular dutch oven that I can bring.

    We do a potluck dinner at my site. Just fix food for 4-6 people dish. Since this will be my last rally I will do a dessert. You can cook at your site and just bring it over when you are ready. It's pretty laid back.

    "Since this will be my last rally I will do a dessert. "

    Are you not planning anymore rallies or are you not going to attend anymore rallies?

    I am looking forward to this camping trip. I plan to do very little on this trip. I don't know who from my family is going to come with me. They know I am not going to run everywhere. I plan to relax and enjoy cooking.

    I'm anxiously awaiting this trip myself, and finally going to bring my popup. Yay! Hoping the weather stays dry this weekend so I can get it ready.

    I found out last night that I may not be able to camp this weekend. We are short on people to work and they don't have anyone to work for me. I am going to check again tonight to see if anything has changed. If I can not camp I would like to come down Saturday for the meal. I can come early to cook if there is a place I can set up to cook.

    I will let you know what I find out tonight.

    I look forward to this trip. My mom may be coming with me.
    jldavis : it will be a bummer if you can't go, but do understand work issues. You can cook at home and bring it or your welcome to cook at my site.
