  • Adam.......We arrive on 19th and I'm ready to be of any help with setup, take down etc. Last year was our first and just started to get the picture. So, while the wife has a bad head cold at present, I am ready to be helpful if needed. Smokey (Neil)

      • I wish I could go to the Rally, maybe next year. Like most of my life these days it is strictly in God's Hands but really I couldn't ask for a better supplier. It was really nice being there last summer but I still plan on using my 29-5T. I know people who are older than my 77 years who still traveling and seeing. Fear is not in my game plan but taking it easy and enjoying the sights and places are. When you see the Beauty of God's creations, well you just want to see more and RVing is the best way to do it. So my fellow RVer's enjoy and just take your time! God Bless, whether you believe or not.

          • Hi, just checked with Gail at Grande Hot Springs resort about a late reservation, and she says there are about 3 cancellations, but needed to check with the rally coordinator to see if there is a wait list. Am I going to get a spot, do you think? We're picking up our new 27-5L Thursday at Thunder RV and hope to just swing over and do our first time set-up. Didn't make earlier reservations (and didn't expect to get in) because we weren't sure when we were going to be there for our trailer.

              • Thanks! And Gail called and said we're confirmed for a 50 amp site, but on the other side from most of the folks at the rally. If you want entertainment bring a video camera and watch me try and set up for the first time Thursday afternoon or evening. Might be some viral video moments! Looking forward to meeting folks. Do we need to do anything ahead of time to join one of the factory tours?

                        • Adam, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your wife for an amazing week. Everything went off like a well oiled machine. Next I wanted to say thanks to EVERYONE! What a great group of people and so welcoming. It was great to meet the folks I "spoke" with most often on the forum and to meet new ones. Safe travels home to you all.

                            +1... But my +1 really doesn't do justice to what Adam, his family and al the volunteers did to make this event a life-time memory. As a first-timer, I can say we were overwhelmed with all that we enjoyed and as Copper865 said..."what a great group of people." Ya just can't beat the Northwood community.
