Martin,

We'll look at the parking while setting it up where the best place for the motorhomes will be... it's a hay field and large, but we'll try to keep it so that you can get in and out... most likely the outer ring.

Perhaps you can car pool around with other folks going out exploring to limit the need to drive - getting to know some other folks..

Weather will dictate alot... as the road along the field is hard, but with lots of rain, continued driving up there could make it interesting. The less driving around up there with those heavy MHs, the better.

We'll do what we can Martin.

Rob

I second the ride sharing idea. I am sure that there will be many going your way or even interested in going on an adventure with you. I know I would be interested in it. Hopefully I am not tied up all day everyday and we can make that happen. The water truck will be going to town from time to time so a ride to the store should be no problem. Going sight seeing, well that might be something we need to put the word out on. There is a great deal to see and do in the region, so I can understand the desire to go out and explore. Baker's Acres is going to have to forgo at least one cutting of hay this year so the less driving around in the field the better.

If it rains, how about bringing back an upstate NY tradition?

Well the wait list finally worked its way down to us, so we will be there. It's our first rally.
I see there's some interest in fishing- Sam is a NY State registered fly fishing guide and a nationally certified fly casting instructor. She'll give some free lessons if there is any interest.

See you all there!

Yes!!

My 7 year old will love some lessons!! Perhaps, for his birthday (he's now 6) in a week, I'll have to get him his own fly rod.

Thanks Wayne and Sam in advance!!

Wayne and Sam,
Great to hear that you will be going to the BB. I also enjoy Fly-Fishing and could use some pointers to improve my fly casting skills, I'll bring a few fly rods so I look forward to meeting you all.

Don't worry about being the only aluminum tent. I am in the same position as you. The wife has told me that the bathroom must be functional, the fridge must be working and that we have some sort of system set up for bedding. I filled the freshwater tank for the first time in the past 18 years and it was leaking. Now I'm really stressed. Coaching both my 5 year old and my 8 year old soccer teams does not leave me much time to convert my aluminum tent to an RV, but we will be there no matter what. We are staying at a full hook up resort near Niagara falls earlier in the week, so that should help.

Super,
I sure could use some fly casting instruction!

Thank you.

Safe travel and see you both at the Rally!

Many of you have been contacting me to offer your help. I find this extremely generous and want to say thank you in advance. We have covered most of our bases and we are in very good shape at this point. Our main goal is for you to just come, relax, enjoy yourselves. I do realize that some find great pleasure in helping out and you will not be denied. My best advice for those needing this form of fulfillment would be to just jump in where ever. There is no real need for a formal assignment, just jump in where ever you see fit.

The generosity has been refreshing. We had an attendee supply all of the coffee products. An anonymous donor sent a check in for "something special for everyone". Rob has been very busy working on corporate donors also and has gotten us some very awesome door prizes. The running list to date is:
Camping World
Meyers RV
Batter Blaster
Fantastik Vent
New Hope Mills
Chobani Yogurt
Tabasco
Inland RV

I am fairly sure Rob will come on and add to the list, for he has been working hard at making that list grow. I think he is aiming for duffle bag goodie bags... thanks for doing all that Rob.


Now as a reminder, we are doing a food drive. PLEASE bring some things to help us fill up the trailer for Roots and Wings.
