    We really need #5 to make us official. [;)] Would love to have you! And then if we can get tzmartin, we would be 6! Starting to look like a real rally. I'm so excited!

    Orchid...once I noticed that they had electricity and showers it was a no brainer. You know I've never been to a rally before... I'm not gonna be asked to get up and sing or anything right ??? There's no initiation right ????

    The only "initiation" is that if you are one of the last to arrive, EVERYONE gets to watch you back into your site. That's why I reserved a pull-through!

    I've never been to a rally before, either. [LOL] We'll all just agree to agree that there will be no singing at ours. [8D]

    That's why we're getting there a day early. [;)] Nah, we have a pull through as well. I wanted 34, but it got snagged right as I was getting ready to reserve it. My DH can back the PUP, but I can't. I'm going to learn though. We have a ton of property here, but it's all wooded. I need an empty parking lot or something.

    We're getting better at backing in, but there's too much time between trips for us to remember what we did the last time.

    Orchid, thanks for keeping track of the sites. I used your map and added a table. I can fill it in until we are official and get a rally page.

    19 sites are still available.

    Boy am i confused. The Stephen Foster State park i was looking at is in Georgia. In the middle of the Okefenokee swamp (hence my alligator comment) We may not be talking about the same park. Are there two Stephen Foster State Parks?

    Thanks, jumpoff. Now i feel better. You reminded me a funny story about rattlesnakes. It's about a 10 minute podcast about a blind guy who goes to a Texas rattlesnake round up. Sit and listen to it if you have time.

    You Have plenty of time yet, and got a feeling you can do it. Its on our calendar, and my schedule has me starting my week off. IF DW can get the next week (a few days at least) off work AND We can get the Grandson out of school, Then there is a very good chance we can make it.

    BTW Orchid....Pam was the WM at the 1st rally SHE went to.... [:D]

    [:O] Wow, that is amazing to hear. I had no idea .... I would love to follow in her footsteps.

    Apparently so. [LOL] I just looked it up and see why you were concerned about alligators. We have a Stephen Foster State Park here in FL too. It just doesn't have the "C" initial in it. Ours is very, very different. It's a cultural arts center and museum. They have a river for fishing, and nice, wooded sites, but nothing like a swamp.

    That may help with persuading to get Jax out of school.

    Ironically the Stephen C Foster in Ga and the Stephen Foster in Fl are fairly close together. I had the same thing happen last year. I thought the rally I was interested in was at Ft Desoto in Pinellas Co Fl. It was actually Desoto in Alabama which is close to Ft Payne....only about 500 miles apart.

    You have no idea how happy this makes me!!! [:D]

    I have no idea why they do this! Names are just not that hard to think up. It's really confusing.

    With an audience, it will take even longer. DH took forever to get the PUP right last weekend because the second he started, a big rig pulled down the road and was sitting there waiting on him. It had been about four years since he backed one, we had some communication issues on where we wanted it, and then the added stress of people waiting..... UGH!

    There is honestly not much to that part, but the school doesn't have to know that. [;)]

    [LOL] They keep us on the complete other side of the place, where the cultural folks don't have to see or hear us. [LOL]

    Yeppers! Just one more reservations makes us OFFICIAL. Once we get that 5th and apply, we will be a real rally! I think we will have several more reservations before the weekend is up. [:D]
