Hey Alabama - There are 443 of us (Portal members). How about three more joining us at Desoto State Park, May 29-June 3? You don't have to stay the whole time. There's a series of falls, the Little River Canyon is spectacular, Chattanooga is a short hop, and the CG is really well run and cared for with updated facilities (clean, well-supervised/patrolled - hosts and rangers, wooded private sights, open sights, and group sites).

We have noticed that we, Alabamian Portal Neighbors, have grown in the past year. We're wondering if any of you are interested in a rally. AL State Parks has done a great job updating our parks, Desoto and Cheaha most recently. Both are beautiful in the spring and fall. What do you think?

If you have questions on setting it up, PM me.

Hmm... This has potential! We're not able to camp Memorial Day weekend, but would love to do something with some new and old camping friends this summer.

Camp Dad, if you say you guys are in for this Alabama Rally, that would pretty much sway our plans to be there, too. Or if you need us to commit first... We could do that if you'll commit to following up. Chicken and egg?!!? :)

We've been talking about exploring AL anyway. This would be a great reason to head over.

BoomJammer, we are already committed for the Memorial weekend rally. We have to wait on the DW's schedule to be posted. We also have to see what the travel dates for our adoption will be. We hope to be heading overseas during this time frame. If we can work it out we would love to make it! I will keep you posted. You decide if your the "chicken or egg".

We are going to stay through June 3rd or 4th. With the canyon, falls, trails, and Chattanooga, there's a ton to do - not to mention lazy time, naps, and chillin' in the CG. We would love to meet all of you! Let us know if you reserve, so we can put Alabama on the map as an official Portal Rally! We need 5 to make it official.

Let us know when you reserve. We have two booked. That would leave us needing three more to make it an AL Rally!

Desoto State Park is in Fort Payne, AL about 51 miles south of Chattanooga off I59. I think you would go to Huntsville and take 35 or 17 over to Ft. Payne, probably 2-2.5 hours.

It would be about 2.5 hours from Lewisburg. The best route would be coming through Huntsville.

Sounds like fun, and I'll keep an eye on making reservations. Desoto State Park is about 3.5 hours from us, maybe a little more since we avoid the interstate. I'm supposed to be TDY to the beach for work during that same time, but that may not happen. I should know something soon. Thanks for trying to put something together!
