Hello all!!!! For the folks signed up for the rally we need to keep posting so we can get other campers involved. With the Rally crawl down we will need to keep this post fresh

Good point Wayne... I don't wanna be a rally troll but when I think it could be appropriate I think we can "casually" mention it on other threads we are posting to. Just think if you live anywhere in the South East, Florida has to be one of the more popular camping destinations in February. I hope our numbers will swell in the coming weeks.

Hello to our South Georgia neighbors!

Florida's Stephen Foster State Park may be closer than you think. It is just 4 miles off I-75 exit 439 (the exit north on the I-75 I-10 interchange); less than 100 miles from Tifton, GA (97.4 miles to be exact).

We'd love to have you join us!

On the left side of the page you will see a box named Upcoming Rallies this usually has all approved rally's scrolling by month of the rally.

Oh, I see. Thanks! I never even knew that was there. Maybe that's why Steve hasn't made us an official thread yet. He has all the info, I was wondering why it was taking so long. I didn't realize there were website issues going on.

We'd love to attend but this is not the place for us. Looking at the demographics of the kids (teens) my DD's are a bit young 6 & 8 for this crowd and SF SP isn't someplace that is advantageous to keep my DD's occupied. I hope to join all of you in the future and so have a GREAT TIME.

Sorry to hear that!

It's true we don't have any kids registered from the site yet. One of my daughters, and her kids 7 and 4, may join us, but not a given yet. She camps with us a lot, but have not mentioned the rally to her yet. My grandchildren are all boys and spend most of our camping time riding their bikes, fishing, and dragging their mama and her BF on hikes down all the trails. [LOL] Grandma's needs two knee replacements so I'm exempt from most of the trails for the time being. I only take them on short walks. [:D]

Yay, welcome aboard!!! How exciting it is to see our little rally growing! [CP]

I think we will start detailed planning in January, after the holidays. Still gives us plenty of time to work things out. We may have more of a final count by that time. Or at least closer. Thanks for deciding to join us!

I just can't begin to express how excited I am about this rally!

My real name is Roberta, and my co-Wagon Master is Simone (SHFL.) I'm not sure if she has ever attended at rally, but I haven't, so I am in such appreciation of all the help our group has offered here. I love our group so far, and I just know everything is going to come together beautifully, and we will all have a wonderful weekend!

Technically, this is Simone's rally. She was the one who narrowed down the place and reserved first - basically turning it from talk to reality. Everyone assumed it was my rally because I just talk a lot. [LOL] Before accepting the position of Wagon Master, I did speak with her and she graciously insisted that I take the position. She is technically a "Scout," but in reality, very much a Wagon Master. Without her taking the first step, our rally may never have existed.

Since some of us have pull through sites, I'm going to think we will have enough space to host our get together activities at one of those. I am determined to drive over this week, and have a look. I wanted to do it last week, but life got in the way.

I know they have rental pavilions, but want to see if that is really necessary before renting one. We do still have many available sites, so our rally just may grow to the proportions of needing one. I'll report back this week further information.

New to the site, and pop ups. First trip is Thanksgiving weekend, but I just made a reservation for the rally weekend.

Our kids will be 5, 8, and almost 11 by then. Might bring the dog, but he is a bit off the wall, and I'm afraid if I tie him to the camper he may tow it away. Looks like the cultural center will be interesting.

Thanks for the welcome, we're really looking forward to the rally and meeting more people. This will be our second rally; the first was last year and considerably bigger. Honestly, I'm looking forward to a smaller one so it's easier to meet and remember everyone. Please don't hesitate to ask if I can do anything to help as I'm a semi-professional organizer and planner :)

Happy Camping!

Jules, The Lady from Little Rock [:D]

Wow! A lot has happened this weekend! We were away camping at Cotton Hill in Georgia (saw 2 other pop-ups in our loop) and just got back late this afternoon.

Thanks, I'm just helping out -- Orchid is the driving force.
I'll update the map and table in the next few minutes.
I AM SO EXCITED! This is going to be great!

Welcome Tom and family. Welcome WeRJulIan -- our daughter is looking forward to meeting your kitten!
