Not to worry, no mud....

Another great asset of the Palmetto Cove is their thick, lush grass that is decades old. Plus, they keep it all mowed like a yard so not really a field at all.

And it is dead flat so mud and spinning tires should not be a problem. I have been there many times, often with heavy rain, never seen any mud or ruts.

And as Doug pointed out, the pavilion is large, will be the main gathering point, and offers a great view of the entire facility.

You will like it.

Nearly time to unleash the beast.....

We are on the home stretch now, time to get things rolling. I will begin a series of posts that should help with planning and hopefully answer some questions.

I am a 2 finger typist and not very good at all, so bear with me.

Sometimes my able bodied assistant, John E Walker, steps in for me. If you find errors, blame them on him.

Any Halloween things for the kids?
Also, we're one of the boondock folks, should we bring a generator. Is drinking water available for fill up or should we truck it in?
First timers, we're really looking forward to it!

Some good things to know....

The Cove features rally style parking, meaning side by side, back to back, in rows. We will all be close neighbors so get out and meet everyone.

No one needs an invitation to join in a ''neighborhood block party''. Don't be shy, just jump right in, you will be welcomed.

The Cove is relatively isolated, best to pack in your supplies.

The nearest fuel station: in down town Cleveland, about 8 miles away.

Nearest big grocery stores: Ingles, Bi-Lo, Walmart. All in Travelers Rest, SC about 18 miles away.

Nearest veterinarian: All About Pets 409 Old Buncombe Rd, Travelers Rest, SC 864.834.7334 About 18 miles

Nearest hospital/emergency care: Branch of Greenville Hospital, Travelers rest. About 18 miles.

The Cove is located in Greenville County, SC

The Cove is staffed by volunteer members and are great people. They are camping folks just like us. They are also a great source for local information.

Be sure to check out the area, especially Caesars Head for a look down on the park.

There is a great fireplace under the pavilion and the Cove furnishes the wood. Enjoy it. If you want a fire at your trailer it must be in a raised fire pit.

We have full use of all the facilities and they come at no cost to the rally.

The meeting hall has tables and seating for app 125. It also has a kitchen, laundry, and restrooms.

The pavilion has picnic tables, rocking chairs, and the great fireplace. We will use it for all group activities, weather permitting.

The lounge is attached to the pavilion. It has gas logs, big fluffy chairs and couches, and a kitchenette. Also restrooms.

There are no bath house facilities, only rest rooms.

Please bring your sets ups to all the meals....eating utensils, plates, bowls, drink, etc.

And please mark your serving dishes and don't forget to pick them up after the meal.

We would like to encourage everyone to wear a name tag, preferably one that includes your forum user name. One of the best parts of any rally is putting a face with a name. If you have a favorite one, any kind, please wear it. We will furnish one if you need it. We will also have markers to personalize it.

And last but not least.....

Please make every effort to stay safe. We are off the beaten path and help may be a while getting there.

Have a great time, do what you want, enjoy your neighbors....

and MAKE WALLY PROUD.

Glad you asked..... it's Halloween

We are planning lots of activities for the kids and we anticipate quite a few to be there.

There will be games, and pumpkins and gourds for each to decorate. Each will receive a goodie bag with Halloween stuff inside.

In honor of Halloween, we would like to encourage everyone to expect some trick or treaters Saturday night. Be ready for


And please feel free to decorate your rig and/or dress the part.

Dry camping....also glad you asked

We have a very good set up for dry camping. The ground is flat with thick mowed grass.

The dump station is an easy access pull through and will have water for flushing your tank.

We will also daisy chain fresh water to each rig.

Please come to the rally with a full fresh water tank, empty waste tanks, and full propane.

The biggest draw on your batteries will be the furnace blower. It can drain batteries in a couple days. Bring an extra blanket and your favorite bed warmer.

Generators are absolutely welcome, hopefully the quiet types like the Hondas and Yamahas. Run occasionally they will keep the batteries up. There may be a couple of them around we can share. It is always good generator etiquette to be mindful of your neighbors.

If you have never boondocked (dry camped), this is the place to break in. Airstreams are among the very best equipped for it and there will be plenty of help to show you the ropes.

Boondocking opens lots of possibilities to expand camping options. Might be a simple overnight stop in a Walmart parking lot, might be a weekend beside a beautiful lake or inside a secluded national park.

You will still have all the same comforts you would have if hooked up.

Do not be afraid to boondock!!! Nothing to it. We are planning a seminar on it.

Besides, the alternative is to sit at home and miss all the fun at Alumalina.
