    Welcome WVhillbilly! Hope you can make it to the rally!

    Sorry for being MIA from the site for a while. It's been a pretty rough summer for us, financially and we've been in survival mode for the last few months. It's been to the point that we nearly had to cancel coming to this rally, but we manged to swing a few things around to make sure we can swing it. It sucks that we only got two camping trips in so far this year, with this being the third.

    On the bright side, it looks like I'm lined up for a promotion at work with a raise in pay come November, so it looks like there's a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Anyway, I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone again, and as mentioned earlier, I will be doing another Spring rally next year. Just mulling over some areas to hold it. Stay tuned!

    Pat,
    Good luck with promotion here’s hoping it goes well. I was beginning to worry about you, I haven’t heard anything from you here or on Facebook. I’m glad your able to make it to the rally. I know James is looking forward to getting together with all the kids.

    Take care and see you soon.

    Rob

    Pat, hope all goes wells with a promotion.

    Did you get the message I sent you, regarding the issue with my furnace that had the same symptoms as your's? It ended being slight interference with the sail switch. It would only happen when the nose of the trailer was a little higher than level. I got a new control board and after installing it. I looks at the sail switch and could see some slight scratches on the sheet metal next to the switch. A little bending of the sheet metal and all is good. But now I have a spare control board.

    Look forward to the spring.[Guitar]

    Rob, we're going to bring some cheese scalloped potatoes for the potluck, if that works for you?.

    I’ve update the chart. I’m already salavating for pot luck already.

    Homecoming date is set, unless they change it the entire gang will be at the rally. Steph and the kids (2 legged and 4 legged) will be arriving Friday night.

    September is now in full swing, hard to believe it. Still on the fence about coming jump off and join us. Still plenty of time and sites are still available.

    yes susan, what usually happens is we pick a certain loop of a campground and a date, then we show up, some as returning freinds, some as new freinds. we then typicially hold a friday night meet and greet. saturday during the day your free to do what ever you like, some do things together, go see the fish at the spillway, or andover flea market ,etc... some do solo.. like hanging out at the beach, kayaking, or just relaxing no pressure either way. then we get back together saturday evening for a potluck dinner and comutial bonfire at a given site. some come for the day, some for the week, but typically we book the weekend together. we are booking the Jamestown 200 section, i am on site 235 for refrence, hope you decide to join us, just let us know if you book your site and hope to meet you soon.

    Exactly what vagov said. It’s a fun weekend where we enjoy company of other campers, make new friends meet up with old ones.
    The Pymatuning area is quite nice this time of year, actually anytime.
    Hope you decide to join us, if you do let me know the site number you booked so I can update the list.

    Hi Everyone! Sorry we haven't been on lately. It's just been a crazy summer. We've been camping and keeping busy. We are still planning on coming to the rally. There will be 2 adults. Not sure what we are bringing for the potluck yet. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
