Hello everyone, We are going to the eastern shore to look at campgrounds for possible rally sites for next year. We will be staying at Ft. Whaley July 30 and 31. We are also going to look at a couple of other campgrounds while we in the area. We'll keep you posted.

Hi Mike &Ann,
We usually stay at Ft Whaley when we visit our friends on the shore. We try to get sites 17 ( nice shade), 1 or 26. There are some nice CG in the area. Good luck hunting and we would like to join in. Emily still refers to your guys as the big brown puppies. Take Care. Bill

You keep this up and Deb & I will be forced to attend. Fort Whaley is a nice place. That is the only one we have camped in there. However, Deb's parents live in Ocean Pines so, not an issue for us.

Glad I can provide some entertainment. I've been working on some new moves. I'll see if I can't have them worked out by Mayberry! And maybe "Jake" (the snake) will even make an appearance if we can coax him from his new home in our shed.

Deb--No meeting required, just come on! All y'all welcome.

Hello from MjDobJohnD,(Mary Jo And John). We were members of the VA chapter so I assume we have been transferred to the MD chapter. We will also be staying in OC at the same time - July 30 - Aug. 1,2010 at the Castaways RV Resort & Campground www.castawayrvoc.com (http://www.castawayrvoc.com) It's relatively new and never stayed there yet. Give me contact info and I can report my impressions.
Hope to meet soon, John

Island Resort just south of Berlin, MD, is very nice and many sites back up to the lake. We stayed there last year over Halloween, the last weekend for the campground, and really enjoyed it. The sites were level and the bathhouses were very clean.

We have been at Island Resort for an overnight stay and it is a great location with a great layout. We did look for the necessities for a rally and they do not have a pavillion or club room. It would be an excellant fair weather rally destination but if it rains............

We are heading up north to Maine and will work our way down through the east to see the leaves change. We have been looking for places to stay and these are helpfull. We want to go around DC, NY, Ellis Island, and a number of Historical places..

I looked up Island Resorts. Their website says no pets. DW would get rid of me before the Fir Kid.
http://www.islandresort.org/ bottom of page on Rates Tab.

Fort Whaley Campground has rates June 12 - Sept 6
Primitive $40
Water & Electric $56
Water, Electric & Sewer $66

Sounds nice but a bit above my price range. Who knows if we are in the area we might find a place near by and say HI...

Bob...the website says "No pets allowed with visitors"...they are referring to visitors to YOUR site. If you look in their "Policies" section, pets are allowed with the usual restrictions, leashing and picking up after them....

06-27-2010, 11:25 PM
Bob, What time of the year will you be in this area ? I ask because I may have a better place for then Fort Whaley. Fort Whaley ain't bad but if you could stay in a better place for less, bet you would. Tom

Bob And Pat, If your want to see Washington DC, Cherry Hill Campground in College Park,MD is the place to stay. They have bus service to the subway right in to town.

Cherry Hill is also on our list for possible rally site.

TXBobcat
06-28-2010, 11:13 PM
Kakamper. I stand corrected. I was looking at the Rate Tab and at the bottom it was discussing Cabins. The no pets was ment for the cabins. Thank you.

mjatwalker. I have Cherry Hill in my places to stay list.. Thanks

Rollinghome.. I don't know when I will be in the area. Right now we are staying in Asheville NC to get mail and I am going to have the front frame on the 5er checked, so I will probably be here for two weeks. We were going to Elkhart to have the front frame checked and found a company here that has a lot of experience with structural parts of RV's. When this is done we will head West to continue up the East coast to see a some of the places in our history.

I will let you know when we get to that area. You can email me if you wish.

Thanks for the info.

Have been a member for about a year but now are ready to come out in the open. For starters I am half posting to see what our signature will look like. Would like to change our user name ( ultralight is too long) How can you do that? Good luck on your search... finding a place close would be nice. Fran and Kathy G

We look forward to having you attend our rally; however, it won't be until 2011! We would like to encourage you to attend one of the other rallies happening this year (New York in Aug or Va in late Aug). They are really a great experience--lots of fun and comradery. You might arrive a stranger but you will definitely leave with a gaggle of new friends. We will keep you posted on our quest for a campground.

As Bill suggested send an e-mail to Jim Beletti and he will help you to change your user name.

I must confess that I have to agree with Gus. If Dick is buying, I am attending. Even if I can't get a site at Ft Whaley, my in-laws live nearby and I can bunk with them or on Dick's couch (or the bed of my pickup in nice weather)

Ann and Mike - on the way home from Nashville one of our stops was the KOA in Hagerstown (Antietam).
If you haven't been there yet first hand - it is probably a little small with only a small covered picnic area. So for a rally with anymore then maybe 4-5 trailers I don't think it will work. But it is near a significant Civil War site and we enjoyed our 2 day stay there.

Pull up a map of Castaways campground and look at sights 1A through 13A, and 19 through 28. If we could get that loop for the rally it would be awesome. It is a well run campground and reasonably priced. Roaring point might be a little small for a rally, and no 50 amp service if anyone needed it. We will be there in sight 13A the second weekend of October.

We had a great time touring Castaway cg yesterday. There aren't too many bad sites throughout the cg. It would be awesome to have the Club Castaways gated area, especially if we could fill it up. It offers paved sites for the rv and truck, private swimming pool, private bath house complete with color TV and hair driers, private sun deck, fishing pier, private laundromat. Wow, did I mention it would all be private to us Heartlanders... The cg also offers a dog area where the pups and run off leash. It also provides a doggie beach area. Our girls would really love that! We'll keep looking but this place has all the necessities. Thank to all who suggested this cg.

Make sure there are 2 chairs because I was planning to claim that position (food tester but I would need to sit). You just need to be sure to give us southern folk enough time to make sure our shots are up to date and our green cards are in order in case we get stopped trying to cross the border

We're headed north. Thanks to Mike, Ann, Calvin & Judy for making a visit to their home state so much fun. If their rally is half as much fun as this weekend was it's going to be a blast!

I am ready!! So Ready but..

are you leaving Jake with a sitter?
How dare you have fun without us...

I will pack .... and have a long wait...
But i know it will be worth it!!

Thanks
Mike and Ann!

Mark and I just love Castaways! We were so lucky one year to get campsite #12B in the gated section, therefore, we make sure we re-book for the following year before we leave. You really don't want to give it up once you have it. We'll be there the second week in September catching the tail end of bike week and the beginning of sunfest. Just love it!

Hey!

Lived in southern MD for 28 years while working for the Navy. Was on travel half the time while working. Tried seafood :( from coast to coast and IT DON'T GET ANY BETTER THAN ON THE EASTERN SHORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

We will be there! A bushel of steamed crabs? A case of beer? Who could ask for more? :D

Maryland seafood! You are so right Hillsonwheels. We ran a scuba charter boat for years and one of the things i miss most is being able to have Duane dive and select our nights meals. I wouldnt touch seafood until I met him and tasted Fresh Catch of the Day.

Lucia and Mark, I just booked your spot!! Kidding but we have to get a "Lot" (meaning several together) so Terry, Jim and I dont have to take a ride in the Golf Cart just to visit you...

So when you book yours Mark, I will leave it up to you to get and keep our Clan together.

Just a note Mike and Ann regarding Jake the snake.
Let it be known here and now, that if He does visit a Rally that I attend, a rescue group for snakes will be called this time. It is not fair that he gets to attend more Heartland Rallies and Families than we do!

I don't know when I've laughed so hard. We will be meeting w/cg officials today to finalize plans for our 2011 rally.

Made it home without a hitch. The only downside to the Castaways getaway was that it ended all too soon. The weather was wonderful so we got to enjoy the pool and the beach. Kelsey and Chance had a great time playing in the water. They even managed to entice Deb out there with them. We also got to enjoy the air show with all the folks parachuting and gliding down to the airport across the road. Michael and I would like to thank everyone for joining us at the Castaways. You guys are great!

Now we're looking forward to Mt. Airy next weekend and then Pine Grove, PA the following so we can do it all over again.

We also made it home safe and sound (no break issues this time thank goodness). We had a BLAST at the mini-rally in MD. We could not have asked for better weather or better friends to hang with. It was nice after all the stress we went through in PA, our breakdown on the turnpike (Thank Goodness for Jim & Cheryl, they are great friends and came to our rescue more than once) to relax and destress in a beautiful campground by the sea. The only downfall is that it all ended to soon and we had to leave. Can't wait until next years full blown MD Rally, we would not miss it for the world.

See you all in Pine Grove in 2 weeks.

You know what is second best to going out for crabs and shrimp with the group was?

Not much waves at the CG for Max's . We took our 2 dogs to Assateague island for some waves . The best thing was our outside shower , The boys both got baths to get all the sand off . Here is the link to Assateague http://www.nps.gov/asis/

The Northeast Chapter Leaders have decided they would like to make difference, no matter how small, to the local community as a part of their rally agendas. Maryland's 2011 rally at the Castaways Campground has chosen the Worcester County Humane Society which is located right down the road from the campground. The shelter is in need of the following items:

Bedding (old towels, sheets, blankets, or quilts)
Toys (both dog and cat)
Purina dry dog, cat, puppy, and kitten food
Pedigree Beef canned dog food
Friskee's canned cat food
Bleach and liquid dish detergent for cleaning

They also take aluminum cans so we will be setting out several receptacles to collect your empty beverage cans.

We believe by adopting a charitable organization as a part of our rallies, we can further show what terrific people Heartlanders are.

Just made our reservations. We will arrive Thursday 9/8 and leave Monday 9/12. We will be on site 166.
Is the campground rally price shown on first page still valid? Looks like I was charged $68/night.
Looking forward to a great Maryland rally, the location is perfect. It will be fun with our Heartland family, including our furry friends. Will have to start loading up on the doggy biscuits. It's a good thing we have a larger basement now to carry the provisions. LOL.

Dorothy and Eric sorry for the confusion on the rate. The price is $50.00 per night. The cg is updating their computer and this is causing confusion--ugh. Just another reason for Winter to be over, maintenance fini, and down to the serious business of rallying! Brenda said everything would be fine when you checked in (which I'm sure it will be as Brenda is very good).

When I told Kelsey and Chance you were coming they were thrilled that their favorite Aunt and Uncle will be there to spoil them even more.

Rally season is about to start and we don't want you to fill up your "dance card" and miss what is going to be a fun-filled, exciting weekend complete with all the opportunity you need to be with friends, meet some new friends, and, of course, overeat to your heart's content! Excited, yes I am and to think it 's only 7 months away!

Hello everyone, We will have tee-shirts for our rally they will be $10.00 each. Send us a PM with your sizes and you can pay at the rally. The shirts will feature the colors of our state flag and be 100% cotton.

We would also like to have steamed crabs as part of Saturday's potluck dinner. This being our first rally I don't think we can afford the full cost so a small per person fee will be necessary, $15.00 to $20.00 per person. Please let us know your interest so we can calculate the number of crabs needed. There is already interest by some to get live crabs and steam them ourselves. Ann and I like this idea as it will also keep the cost down.

dieselsweetheart
06-23-2011, 12:27 PM
Mike, may I make a suggestion on the shirts. The 100% cotton may shrink. In the past we have ordered the 50/50 heavyweight blend. (Just a suggestion)..

I'm not a crab person so I will pass.

Thanks!

John will gladly help prepare dinner and I will galdly eat them. LOL. I'll send you a pm about the shirts..

Thanks for the suggestion on the shirts; however, we prefer 100% cotton as we find them to be much cooler. As for shrinkage, we've not found that to be a problem. The 50/50 shirts we've gotten seem to fit tighter than the 100% cotton ones and since we don't put our tees in the dryer shrinkage is not an issue. For those that do dry their shirts I would think the end result would be the same as the 50/50.

Glad to see you stick to 100% cotton on the T shirts, we will absolutely NOT purchase the 50/50 blend. DW is a real stickler for all cotton material, so put us down for XL for me and an XL for DW. As for the crabs, you are talking to 2 original Baltimore Marylanders so bring them on! Buy them live by the bushel and I will help steam them (with beer and Old Bay) to perfection. Also costs will be minimized buying "live" vs pre-cooked. It's going to be a GREAT rally.

really looking forward to this rally and, hopefully, cool days at the shore.

Please don't tell Gus we are coming. He will think I don't love him and try to exile me to South Carolina. Phil already told me NO as there is 1 like me there already
