How about some of those stick on name tags to help those of us that are short term memory challenged.
I also have a good bit of firewood that I cut in May, if you think it will burn.
Can't wait,
David

Name Badges

Glad you brought that up, David. In eveyone's packet, along with some other goodies, will be 2 pin style name badges, as always. We encourage everyone to make one, wear it, and feel free to be creative with it. If you already have a nice badge, by all means use it.

Just some unsolicited advice: If you like going to rallys on a semi regular basis, a nice nametag is a good thing to have. You will meet lots of great people, and never remember their names. Comes with the territory. But not to worry, they won't remember yours either. Everyone is equal.

So.....everyone's assignment between now and rally time: make yourself a nice, custom name tag, or be forced to wear the plain, generic, standard issue tag.

There will be an exit exam on Sunday morning: everyone must remember 1 name other than their own or their spouse.

You may not leave the rally until you can.

I will be bringing our new service truck which I already have loaded with some of the tools I will be keeping. I also am planning on bringing my auto/truck computer scanner. If you have a check engine light,ABS or some other one on I should be able to see what is causing it to come on. I have several exrension cords that I will be trying to send to new homes. My dad was an electrician so the are heavy duty. I would like to also check out my 50 amp cord to see how good it is. If anyone has a 50 to 30 dog bone I can use with a trailer also. I think it is about 50 feet long. Got the wirre for free all I had to do was add the ends. See you all soon

Thanks John & Susan and Frank!

This will be our second rally and looking forward meeting everyone and camping at Wateree.

I'll also have a moisture meter (invasive and non-invasive) available if anyone's interested.

Dennis

I presume that these are tools that are available during the Rally for "short-term" use (i.e. during the Rally).

"Dewalt Rotary Polisher and Cyclo Polisher", from RoadRunner,

I will bring a plug-in receptacle and GFI tester to be available for anyone who wants to verify correct receptacle wiring, and test GFI tripping.

This will also be an opportunity for some people to see what these are, and how to use them which may help them decide whether to buy one or not.

That "propane sniffer" sounds ideal! We
Keep detecting a smell around our camper! Sandlapper, who is my brother, told me about your detector. It will be good to know if we are in the clear or not! Thanks for bringin it!
