What weather temps are normally expected in early November in Orlando? Should I plan on a heater at night? Or A/C in the day? I figure the weather should be pretty pleasant, but want to make sure I have all the bases covered in case.

Thanks!
I would say watch the weather the week before. It is hard to say. We went at Christmas a few years ago. I think it was usually in the 70's and 80's but we got the 20's at night and the 60s during the day.

I live in Brooksville Fl about 1.5 hours west of Orlando. Plan to run your heater at night and your AC during the day. That time of year it can swing one way or the other. Last year we were at Rainbow river camp grounds, about the same time of the year and it was in the 50s during the day! What heck???

Alright Rally goers, we are getting to serious countdown time.

FYI - I will be MIA from OCT 25-28th and when I say MIA I mean MIA. You will not be able to text, call, email, or reach me via this thread. I will also not be online much from the 28th till the rally but will still be getting email and text updates on my phone.


What I am trying to say is this. If you have questions, need help planning, etc...NOW IS THE TIME.

For those of you planning on sending in fax request for a loop or specific site number you have 3.5 weeks to decide what you want. If you click on this link and go to Fortfiends.net, you will find the map with the types of sites, videos of all the loops and other assorted information about the campsites. If you need the restrooms at the campground, check out the link on sites near comfort stations

Since many of the attendees wanted the ability to pick their own type of loop (premium, preferred, full), we will likely be all over the place. Unless the Fort Managers decide something different......

It bears mentioning again that it will be rather tough to have many of the usual rally features at this rally. Through the archive of pages of this thread, I believe there were suggestions of how to organize gatherings etc. But, many of us don't know exactly what we'll be doing when during our stay at FW. Since we all are in different loops based on site amenity preference, this adds a level of complication to community. Disney's prices for a pavilion don't help either.

My suggestion to all is to be outwardly social. Get on your bike or golf cart and go looking for other people hanging out by aluminum.

If you're willing to post publicly which site you're on, and then you could post something to this thread like: "Site___. Happy hour at 5." And wait for people to show up. Or: "going to watch fireworks tonight. Meet at the dock at____PM if you'd like to watch as a group." I bet some people will join you.

Excellent point Jason.

Once again here is the Rally Schedule -
Sunday- Rally Officially Starts

Meet & Greet Happy Hour -
After getting setup, bring the drink and snack (if you want one) of your choice. Place to be announced later.
(This might be your only chance to meet a large portion of the attendees)

Monday -
zilch, nada, zero, nothing - plan your own festivities

Tuesday - zilch, nada, zero, nothing - plan your own festivities

Wednesday - zilch, nada, zero, nothing - plan your own festivities


Thursday - zilch, nada, zero, nothing - plan your own festivities



Friday -
Goodbye at the Campfire Sing-A-Long
Bring your marshmallows, roasting sticks, chocolate, graham crackers, hot dogs, & buns (if you want)...


Saturday - End Of Rally
Zilch, nada, nothing, zero...


I am not planning on hosting at my site, as I don't have an Airstream to display. I have had two offers to host the Meet & Greet. I will check the layout when I get there the week before and make a decision.

I have been thinking about the options for communicating at the rally. We could set up a twitter feed for use in communicating with the group, or text me and I could resend it out in a group text (this requires everyone giving me their cell numbers), we could post it here but I am unsure how many will have internet access that week, and/or we could put a board up announcing proposed event that people could check on their own.

I was wondering if the Caravan to the World was still being planned. If so I'd really like to know what time so I could get pictures of you all driving into the Fort.....

I'd be out for the texting option. Believe it or not, we don't have free/unlimited text on our phones. Since we have smartphones and access to email, and we didn't see the need for an extra $10/month for texting.

I'm not a twitter user now, but could become one for the rally if that's the route chosen. Does broadcasting by twitter solve the issue of communication with those that might be without a computer or smartphone?

Putting a board up is the "easiest" option from a planning stand point BUT considering the size of Fort Wilderness, getting people to go look at the board several times a day isn't practical.

We may have to do both texting and twitter. Almost all phones have the ability to text (free or not), shawn says twitter requires a smart phone or computer. Any ideas?

I think we're going to see multiple systems used. Some will post to the forums. If someone organizes a twitter feed then it will get used by some, too. Others may use texts. Some will use old fashioned word if mouth and just walking by and saying hello to a stranger and that person will be connected somehow and they will pass on the goings-on.
