RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

John/Nikki, I'd hate to see you lose any inheritance. :B So any other weekend is good for you? Linda, Just counting the interested, not the confirmed. I know it's been difficult getting you guys to a rally over the years. :(

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

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?

Ah,.,,,I remember, Grousehunters friend was Newswriter and they helped with the rally on the Snake with Grousehunter. Yeah, that's the one where I fixed up a mean batch of spaghetti sauce. ;B

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

Linda, 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

Carol I could make a one day trip also and spend the night at the casinoThe closest casino that I know of around here (Richland) is up in Toppenish or down in Pendleton, both about 60 miiles away.

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

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.

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

Bigdog, Tradewinds was first to try and get another gathering together, so let HIM run with it first.

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

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.

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

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

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

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. :)

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

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.

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

Hobo, Good to hear from you, and a belated Happy Birthday! Tradewinds, 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.

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

Hi folks, Well, I tried digging up old contact info to no avail. Those that haven't posted lately I tried sending a PM, again with no luck. So unless we hear from them by the end of January, we'll donate according to our original idea. I have updated post #1 of this thread, so please read it. This rally is now an informal gathering with no wagon master and no planned activities. You're on your own to have fun and to meet and greet everyone else. If you decide not to attend and are on the list in post #1, please let me and the park know so we can take you off the list and open up your site. If there is not enough interest in even an informal get together, we'll cancel our hold on the tee-pee room. We're sorry to see it end this way. We were really looking forward to another great rally with some great friends. We'd love to hear from you anytime you'd like to drop us a note. You can PM me and I'll get an email about it. We have our blog you can follow if you'd like (dlgroesbeck.blogspot.com). And Laura is on Facebook (laura douglas grouesbeck). Personally, I never found the time to Facebook. :R Until we meet again, take care. David & Laura

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

Very true Dick. I saw a couple at Olive Garden once having dinner. They were both paying more attention to their Ipad's than each other. I wonder if they were texting each other because they sure weren't talking much. :B Yes, even our rally has been shrinking the past few years. Many of the former participants seem to be enjoying retirement elsewhere and not in the NW (and that's fine). :C

RE: 2015 NW Gathering (planning)

Hi everyone, I hope y'all had a safe and happy New Year's. Pretty quiet here at the park in Jacksonville, but I hear they had a good party going on downtown at The Landing (kind of the equivalent of Seattle Center). Well, I hate to say this, but I think it's decision time. Time to decide it those of you that are left as being signed up for the rally still want to get together or not. Nobody has stepped forward to be the wagon master, so unless someone does or has a better idea, Laura and I will donate the useful supplies we have to a group (a church or school, Goodwill, etc) that can use them, and the left-over funds to a charity (maybe Northwest Harvest since we primarily used the funds for food anyway). I'm sure many of you are as sad as Laura and I are to see things end this way, but who knows, maybe someone down the road will have a bright idea to have a NW rally and start up new friendships. So, LAST CHANCE, what's it going to be? A friendly get together or something else? Silence means you don't care one way or another, and I'm sure that's not the case, so speak up! If we can't come up with other plans, then I think we should just cancel the rally and donate as mentioned above. Please let me know what you would like to do. Thanks! David & Laura
