Hi DanB, nice map.

We are on B027. Hope there is a connector path from my site to the main area
or we may be drinking errr I mean rallying by ourselves. Looking forward to meeting y'all.

Hey all,

Ran into a slight show stopper for me. After getting the last bit of belly skin of my A/S, I discovered a fatigue crack in my frame just aft of my front axle

I seem to keep running into problems that are setting me back and I'm thinking now I definitely won't be ready for April. Maybe a miracle can happen, but it's not looking too good. I'm going to get my welder buddy over to take a look and see what I can do about the crack and to also help me in getting new outriggers put on.

I don't want to do a *iss poor job at fixing my trailer and want to do it right, so that's where I stand as of today.

I'm still looking at coming up for the rally, but may have to pitch a tent and spay paint it gray to fit in . I'd also consider opening up my reservation to someone else if there's tent spots available here. I'll take a look and see!

Hi Folks, for those of you who know the campground, we have a 20' (6.0 Meter) Argosy Minuet. Do you think it will fit in B007? The campground lists that site for 18'

Seems like you would fit but if your unsure you could always ask CrzyCorspman he posted earlier his trailer would'nt be road worthy and was willing to give up his site and opt for a tent site

I talked to a campground rep the other day. Really don't know who he was, but he picked up the phone!

Basicall, he said that "they would work with us." Kinda gave the impression that we might have the run of the place.

Makes me wonder if we couldn't squeeze in a couple of extra trailers on the big lots. Obviously not easy or ideal, but I would hate to see anyone closed out.

Flowers better be in bloom, or I'm gonna be pissed!

Don't let the frame slow you down! I have been working 8hrs a day since jan 1 getting my 26fter ready and I thought I was almost ready and I have to put all new plumbing in front to back side to side! I have had a few slow downs but lots of fun!

Well, went out and bought a mig welder today, among the air compressor, air tools and various other tools. Being that the days are getting longer down here in the south, I'm still going to work feverishly to try and get this sucker on the road. I've got a few steelworker friends down here with the Seabee's and going to ask them to give me some training on how to weld.

I've found that I really enjoy using my die grinder Was cutting all kind of things up today...ok, so it was just all of the old floor bolts, but the sparks were flying

I'll keep you all posted!!

Well, it looks like we are going to have a full house!!! At the moment we have over 50 people signed up and I know there is still a great deal of interest out there. Some are having to go out side the loop, which is fine. I don't think the campground is so large that there will be any issues of seperation and I hope we have even more to sign up so we can fill the entire campground! I have never been so anxious for Spring!

*crzycorpsman we hope you get your trailer fixed and ready for the Rally!

Well I have just finished all the plumbing except the connection to the tolit! (lowes is closed and need a fitting) I have put in all new pex tubing with a combination of brass and plastic fittings. Shut Off valves under both sinks and on the hot water heater. I hope and pray we have no leaks. And I found 2 pinched off wires on my pwr converter! I think they work some of things that I already ran new tooo... any whoooo. Our First trip is in 2 weeks and I am pushing hard to have her ready and like new!

Just checking in - we are amazed so many folks are coming. We had no idea there would so much interest!

This rally was originally intended to be a "do your own thing" - "Pay as you go" type of event. I hope it stays that way. That said, it might be nice for us to have some opportunities to mix, enjoy the area, and match up faces to monikers.

I have put together a suggest itinerary of events. Really everything is up for grabs and nothing is set. I just think we need to begin somewhere and now its the time.

Look at:

DOGWOODS & BLUEGRASS SCHEDULE


and please tell me if this is too anal retentive (meaning we should have no agenda what-so-ever) or, some of you experienced rallyers may have a better idea. Some things, like the flower walk, is guided by one of the park rangers and he would have to be compensated. Some things, like a unit tour, will, of course, be free.

We can go as expensive or as cheap as you please - we can hire a round the clock tour guide or sit in our units and vegg out - again - now is the time to chime in!

Ill update the calendar as needed.
