Thanks

there are oodles of threads on airforums.com on the subject. I don't think that the built-in search function works well, though...so I do this:
go to google.
type this in the search: "cb radio " site:airforums.com

I suspect that the "performance tune-up" you mention is the notion that cb antennas have to be "tuned" or "adjusted" to match your particular vehicle, and antenna placement. your vehicle becomes part of the antenna system, in effect. yeah, you can just slap an antenna on the roof, and go...but for "best results"...

If that's the place it is really close to the bay and a race track? I personally like racing and the sound of unmuffled engines. I imagine I am one of few.

This is the place! There's a race track and a whole bunch of potato fields surrounding it. I wonder if potatoes will be in season? I'd love to get some at a farm stand or farmers market.

Yippee! This rally site has a pool!

Wicked happy about this, the campground has an in-ground, heated pool! The kids will love this (so will some of us adults).

This big kid will partake. I also hope to go to the beach. I hope I don't get harpooned.

I'm thinking the local news will be out looking for me at the pool and the beach as I look like a Manatee in a bathing suit (in fact I call mine my Manatee suit). Being southern, warm water creatures Manatees are wicked rare in Canada.

The Argosy is for sale. the three of us and the dog would not have survived 10 days or so in it together. Too small. I am going to miss it dearly. I really love that thing and was looking forward to painting it back to white and tan.

Thanks for this Mike. Joan does not need to worry as many of us will be visiting Nova Scotia before or after the R1R. I know I'm looking forward to the NEU Maritime Holiday Caravan which will be stopping in Nova Scotia the week before the rally starts. We will be touring the Northumberland Shore and Cape Breton Island areas (yippee!).

T&G. Just curious. Is that 15 left of the 99 that Bayview advertises? Or are they rigging up more sites for us? Thanks.

Hi thatismytruc,

My understanding is it's over and above the 99 sites advertised. I'm hearing 120+ rigs are signed up for the R1R so safari field parking for some may be in order.

hmmmm ... Not to be a dope or anything, and don't get me wrong I'm glad so many are going, but I would imagine that whomever gets the safari field might be a bit disappointed about not having any hook ups. Perhaps those with no hook ups will get a discount of some sort?

Allie recalls being told that first to sign up first to get hook ups. Is this true? we did sign up early. If not, I for one am now thinking I'd better get there early so that I am not in the safari field. I'm going to have to acquire another solid rocket booster or two.

The first to sign up get 3 way hookups.I understood that most (if not all) others will get water and electric. I recommend you email Bob, he will be able to give you the latest info on who will get what.

Exclamation Rally Schedule

With the Region One Rally so close and rumors abundant, is there a posted schedule available to attendes yet? We heard over the weekend that the much talked about Lobster Bake Dinner was being held Friday night. Seems a shame for it to be schedled for that night since so many of the folks will be heading home that day. I know Bob and his staff are working hard and this will be for sure a wonderful rally but if the daile schedule is available it would be great to have it posted for folks to make their plans for sight seeing and meals.
