    Hello everyone!

    I know we just had our 2018 rally, but now is a good the to plan for 2019. Veteran's Day is on a Monday, giving us a 3-day weekend, and that might be a great time to have a rally and honor our veteran attendees.

    I tried to find easy-to-reach State Parks within 3 hours of jacksonville, Tallahassee, Daytona, Orlando, and Tampa. (...and Silver Spring State Park was not available.)

    The campgrounds are
    Stephen Foster S.P. $20/night — near I-10 and I-75 (27 sites available)
    Suwannee River S.P. $22/night — I-10 exit #275 (22 sites)
    Paynes Prairie S.P. $18/night — I-75 exit #374 (17 sites)
    O'Leno S.P. $18/night — I-75 exit #414 from N; #399 from S (50 sites)

    Please select your preferred location.
    The poll will close on January 10, 2019, because we are going to need to reserve our sites before they are all taken.

    That weekend will probably not work for me. I believe it is end of a 6-week session, which means my final grades are due on Saturday and there is not enough time in that week to finish up early.

    Maybe you can come for Saturday and Sunday nights...
    If not, we'll catch you at a later rally.

    Been a while since I jumped over here. Maybe the hubby and I will try and make this one. We have never been to any of the parks listed, so it would be new for us. And I am still trying to get that banner from StPeteClipper. That is what I get for trusting in someone...

    It doesn't work that way. I must work the FULL day on Saturday in order to finish up, and will only be able to take part of the day Sunday off, too. A "short session" ends Tuesday before that weekend and a new batch of classes starts the very next day, Wednesday. Effectively, I am teaching 4 classes at once, that particular week. The schedule is not within my control and I can't even change a date when an assignment is due. Believe me, I wish I could make adjustments. Just have fun without me!

    Well Cuckoo, that's what you get for giving it up! Hard to believe it's been so long since I've been to the FL rallies. Moved to VA in 2015! Can't believe that I have been here for almost 4 years. Have fun at the Rally everyone!

    NoleFan, we've has a few kids at rallies in the past. I have only been to small rallies 5 - 10 pop-up campers.

    There doesn’t seem to be much interest in a Veterans Day Rally — so we'll just have to plan one for another time.

    YES! I am still upset about it! He was supposed to do the rally after mine so I gave him the banner. I've messaged him multiple times to get it back. Always got, "Oh I'll send it. What is your address?" Never sent it. It made me feel like crap because it is now gone all because I trusted a person. [:(!][V]
