Hi Garry I up graded from an 85 to a 94 so we may be the youngsters LOL. Rich I hope you can make it. It would be wonderful to see you. My girlfriend and I will be there the afternoon of the 31st.

I'm hoping to make this for the first weekend and bring the kids. We're venturing out beyond NYS this year as we get used to it after the fiasco with the Tioga nearly 3 years ago. Can't believe how much time has passed since the 14 days in Daytona.....

Hi Melody, good to see that you will be attending this years GORV's event. I will save you a spot near the shower-out house with 30 amp electric service.

We have RSVP'd that we will be attending the Rustic Retreat.  We will arrive Wed. 8/1 (5 nights stay), depart on Monday, Aug. 6 no later than mid afternoon.  We need 30 amp service please, and near a bathhouse, as our MANORette does not have bathroom facilities.  Running water not necessary--we fill a holding tank to wash hands, and bring our own drinking water in a big cooler dispenser.  Pretty easy living, no frills.  Please let me know how we go about reserving a spot for those 5 nights.  We are excited about this--our first rally/event EVER.  My 40th high school class reunion is that weekend 8/3-8.4--only just over 1 hr away from Thompson---so perfect timing!

If I can get Betty rain proofed I’ll be there. I may be having to give her a new lid when my weather breaks. I hope to get to come.

Hi Melody, don't worry about it. We will take your word for it. I see that your in PA and not to far from here. Sure hope that you will be here this year.

Event Description states "camping is free for GORV members".   I joined the group last August, but I just had to register myself.  Is there a 'membership fee' I'm not aware of.  My  husband and I are considering attending the NE Ohio Rally in August.  How do we go and prove we are 'members of GORV"?

Seams like every time I say I want to attend, something will bight me in the,well you know the saying. This year I'm going to sneak up on it. Last year the old palace ballooned a torque converter. The other two years was health issues with my poor old uncle Bob.  I'm not Australian ( Bob's your uncle) but I have a sweat old uncle Bob who has now passed on whom, I guardian-ed for six years and miss a lot. I will say that I really wan't to make it but I don't wan't the bummer of a let down if I don't so, I'll leave it at I will if I can. I really want to meat some of the crew......Rich.
