I am at Perry now, I'll give you an update.
Haven't seen any mosquitos, it is too dry. There are groups of gnats that swarm by.
I have put 7 dust around anything that touches the ground and have not had any problems.
There are still some 3 point hook ups left. Sewage is not a problem. Gray water can be dumped on the ground. Black water is scheduled as you come in to be pumped out every 5 days.
There are still 30 amp sites available. Turn on your A/C early and stay cool.
Vintage sites are the best in the park. There are shade trees and grass. All have 3 point hook ups. The vintage sites are the best I have ever seen in 4 Int'l rallies.
It is a large area and trams will start running today to take you to all the park.
Come on down and have some fun.
Brian

Looks like everyone may be on the road. i'm leaving jersey at about 4pm today for perry. my suggestion is to book a campsite at the local campground mentioned a couple of post above your in the thread or use that as fallback if you can't secure a parking spot at the Rally proper.

you should hanging around the Vintage section. see you in PERRY!

While reading one of Rich Lhur's blog entries, I was reminded of a repellent for gnats and mosquetos...the later apparently isn't an issue at the International because of the draught, though. I grew up in Southeast Georgia and we didn't have too much of a gnat problem, at least not as bad as Central Georgia seems to have the reputation for these days. Any way, we used Avon's Skin So Soft to repel mosquitoes and gnats when they were a problem. Just make sure you don't get it in your eyes as it is oily and will burn, but it really works and is better for your skin than most insect repellents. Also remember, a little goes a long way so don't feel like you have to smell like a French..., well you know, don't take a bath in it unless you just want to conserve gray water tank capacity. Just dab a little around your eyes (sparingly) and ears and mouth. Gnats don't bite, but they sure do buzz around your ears and fly around your eyes and into your mouth and just make a nuisance of themselves in their quest for moisture.

Slowly working our way down from Delaware, and getting a few hours rest in Columbia, SC at a Flying J. Compared to I-95, Rt. 20 is a nice drive (so far). Nice people here. There's about a half dozen police cars parked at the restaurant. Met another Bambi owner, who was heading north for a family reunion,at a rest stop north of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. So far we have give given two tours of the AS, and had an offer to sell it at a service station near Bishopville, SC. (RIGHT!) Should be in Perry sometime tomorrow morning. I brought plenty of insecticide if anyone needs any. Wonder what the bullpen looks like tonight?

We're making our way to Perry, as well! We made it to our destination--the Racoon Mtn Campground...near Lookout Mtn. Trying to decide if we have time to gawk at the touristy stuff, or just keep up the pace.

I can't wait to get there and see everybody! Safe travels everyone!

I'll be arriving on Friday....

This will be the first time I have ever seen so much silver parked in one place. I will be visiting without my trailer, but I do look forward to meeting some of you. WBCCI 17109

Drove by today. Only had to get back about 1/3 of a mile on the overpass to get them all in.

Stopped and said Hi to Insideout (Sheri) today. Hopefully see a few of you Saturday at the VAC open house.

Yes! Yes! Pictures of the parade would be greatly appreciated especially by those folks participating in the parade who don't have the opportunity to take the photos!

Those of us left behind with trailers not quite road worthy yet would love any pictures and dialog that any of you lucky folks would like to post.

Next year in Montana sounds good to us!
