Sorry I haven't posted for awhile. Been busy at work and with other stuff. :R Anyway...
So who is still interested in getting together? A few months ago, I sent PM's to most of our old timer attendees. The replies I got back were...a couple said "probably not" (other commitments), a couple said "would love to", and the rest said "too early to commit". Everyone said "would love to see everyone again". We would need to have 10 rigs to get a discount on the nightly fee and be able to reserve the clubhouse. Otherwise, we'll just have the party at the back/side of someone's rig. :C
Please let me know if you're interested.
Have you decided where we're going? We have a tentative thing starting 06/08 in the Wenatchee area.Yep, we're talking about doing here at Horn Rapids in Rishland. It whould be an easy drive up to Wenatchee from here. :C
Well, as always, it's tough to find a date that works well for everyone, but what would you all say to June 5-7? That's 2 weeks after Memorial Day. Of course the early birds and those that want to stay later could do so.
I'd hate to see you lose any inheritance. :B So any other weekend is good for you?
Just counting the interested, not the confirmed. I know it's been difficult getting you guys to a rally over the years. :(
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
Tradewinds and I have chatted off-line about the rally and he is passing the baton back to me to see what we can get organized, so here goes. :B
So it looks like we have a total of 10 rigs so far that have expressed interest in getting together again at Horn Rapids. Next thing we would need to do is pick a date.
In the past, we have always done the weekend between Mother's Day and Memorial Day. For 2015, that would be May 15-17.
Or maybe we push it out a bit into early June, say the weekend before Father's Day, which would be June 12-14. Or there are 2 other weekends after Memorial Day too. Any later than Father's Day and I think we'll be getting into the heat of eastern Washington and I'll bet most of you don't want to go then. :C
So, when would you like to do the rally?
They do have a wine tour here, but not sure which rally you're referring to where pople got sloshed. :B I remember a few people were a little tipsy at one of the Dayton rallies, but it could have been at Prosser too.
We could still do it in May if that's what folks want, or we could move it into June if that would be better for the majority. July and August might be getting a bit too warm over here. :C
For everyone still following this thread...
Laura and I are in Richland WA at Horn Rapids RV Resort. I started a new job (contract) at Lockheed Martin (Hanford) a couple weeks ago.
What would you think about having a rally over here?
Horn Rapids is a nice park, although not much to do here. They have a nice clubhouse that would suit us well. There was a rally here several years ago and it's one of the few that we missed. Richland is just a couple miles down the road, Kenniwick is a few more past that. :)
If you would like to have a rally here, let me know. And let me know when you think would be a good time to have it here.
Davig G. Could you, would you go in and change the title on this and lets see if we can get some interest in a informal gathering this Summer.
Okay Bob, I have changed the topic of this thread. Those of you that are subscribed to it will see the change in your email subject line. Since I don't know where we might be next year, we can't commit to anything at this point, but we'll definitely come to the gathering if we are in the area. Tradewinds is going to play leader and organizer for the gathering, so give him your support as you did for Laura and I.
Thanks Linda. I've been reading about the fires online. Pretty sad, but pretty common this time of year. I don't think we'll run into any problems with fires. We are heading NW from here, hit I-40 in Memphis, head west from there until I-5 in CA, then home. Hoping we don't run into any tornadoes. :E
For all of you still following this thread, it's official, we're heading back to WA. Yes, we're giving up the hot and humid FL weather, not because it's hot and humid, but because I still don't have a job yet. We figured it would be nicer to be broke around family and friends. :B
We will be leaving here on Wednesday, 7/23 (4 days from now), and should arrive in Elma WA on 8/4 if all goes according to plan. 11 stops in 12 days, about 300 miles between most of the stops. Going to swing by the south rim of the Grand Canyon and hope the view is better than when we stopped on the north side several years ago.
I might have a job shortly after we get there. I've had a few good interviews with a company in Kirkland. The hiring manager is on vacation at the same time we're on our way back that way, so I'm hoping to hear good news shortly after our arrival. If not, back to job hunting. :)
I agree Linda. Wish there was a way we could all stay connected here in the forum.
Well, we might be heading back up to the NW. Depends on whether I find a job in the next few weeks. Been out of work for 3 months now. Laura wants to be home (Lynnwood) in August for daughter's baby shower and in October when baby is due. It would be cheaper to drive back than to fly her out a couple of times. If we do head back, we'll pull out of here on 7/23 (monthly rent is up then). But I'm hoping I find something before then. Time will tell.
Good to hear from you, and a belated Happy Birthday!
Glad to hear that you and Sue have managed to stay out of the hospital for awhile. Keep it up!
Has anyone figured out a way that we can all stay in touch with each other? It sure would be nice to just say hi every once and awhile.
