Hi Harriet,

I already have your son's travel figured out should he decide to visit from Philly. Piece of cake!

Jim & Harriet
09-01-2010, 05:14 PM
hi Deb,
thanks for thinking about Andrew. That idea had crossed my mind!
Sorry you had a long-and-winding drive thru DC on your way home. It really does
seem to depend on how lucky / unlucky you are with the traffic.
I sent you a message with a few questions about the mifi - did you get that? I will
go to the Verizon office tomorrow and chat with them.
see you in Mt. Airy - should be an easier drive. :angel:

We have been to Sea Pirate a couple of times. If you are a returning camper let them know, they offer a discount for returnees. That discount is not as low as the price Deb listed.

FYI - If you want a pull through site that will be more then the above listed price.

dbylinski
09-02-2010, 01:42 PM
Thanks Duane But...

I don't believe the Returning Guest Discount will apply but I will double check with them. We are already discounted as that is an IN SEASON rate for the facility.

We have booked the entire 500 Section (Except 3 Sites Already Booked) and ALL SITES are the same rate. The size of your rig will determine your site number. There will be no additional charge for pull thru sites during the rally.

Jim & Harriet
09-02-2010, 07:41 PM
sounds like you have everything under control!
should be great!

Not what I was told yesterday when I made our reservation.

Hello Gang,

Just got done confirming our rates with Sea Pirate and thanks to Betty Ann for confirming that all sites will be 46.00 per night and the sites will be assigned by rig size. We are all set and looking foward to another nice weekend at the Jersey Shore!

Hey Deb just jumped on the computer see you're setup for Sea Pirate next year. It's a long haul from atco but count me and Fran in. We are going to call and book a site. See ya in Pa.

Glenn and Fran

dbylinski
09-08-2010, 02:31 AM
Hey Glenn, very cool and I'm glad I didn't upset your distance calculator. Yep, it'll take longer to load and hook up, than it will take to get there for some of us! Please be sure to post your site # for me.

Jim & Harriet
09-08-2010, 01:30 PM
hi Deb,
we will check the Google-map and decide the best way to get there from here.
Probably not as long a ride as it was to Cape May - and we will plan to spend
one or two extra days. Is there a "closing date" for reservations? Need to wait
and find out how the vacation day allotment will play-out for next year.

dbylinski
09-08-2010, 01:49 PM
Hey Jim,

We will be turning the sites back to Sea Pirate on April 1, 2011 if we haven't booked them. This should give you plenty of time to plan things out. Hope we get to see you on our turf again!

dbylinski
09-08-2010, 02:03 PM
Jim, We travel to Danville frequently and I know you are off I-81. We would travel 29 normally but would suggest 81 North to 66 East to 495 toward Baltimore, cross the Key Bridge onto I-95 North. Cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge onto 295 North. Exit onto Route 70 East (Awful road with lots of lights) onto Route 72 East onto Route 9 South. 5.5 Miles and the Garmin's gonna say
"you have reached your destination on the left". Welcome to NJ!

Jim & Harriet
09-09-2010, 10:36 AM
Thanks Deb. Time-wise maybe 7 - 8 hours more or less?
And coming from Philadelphia the best bus stop would be...?

dbylinski
09-09-2010, 02:20 PM
Jim, I would say 8 hours approximately from Danville on 29 so you be the judge from where you are. As far as Andrew's bus stop, he would want to take the Gambler's Express (Otherwise know as Lindenwold High Speed Line) into Atlantic City. I think he can hook up with that from 30th Street Station. Once in AC he will get NJ Transit Route 9 Corridor Bus North. They will stop right on route 9 by Sea Pirate about 200 yards from our sites. Life is good my friend!

10-15-2010, 04:09 PM
hi Deb,
I was checking the site map but I can't seem to locate the #520?
Can you tell me what sites you have reserved - we are going to
call and make a reservation.
This year we will be adding extra days to this trip to your state!
Thanks for the help.

dbylinski
10-15-2010, 04:59 PM
Hi Jim,

Their internet map is outdated. If you are looking at their map there are only two rows of sites in the 500 section. There is a green area to the right of those sites. Number 520 is in that green area to the right of 513 and progress up to 526 to the right of 519. How long will you be planning to stay?

Jim & Harriet
10-15-2010, 06:11 PM
hi Deb,
thanks for the info. thought my eyesight was failing even more!
we'd love to be near you guys.
we are planning to be there on friday and then leave on tuesday
or wednesday depending on jim's work / vacation schedule.
with the williamsburg rally scheduled the previous weekend we
would hardly have time to restock and head-out again any sooner
so we will just stay longer... :-)
looking forward to "rally-season 2011" already!

Harriet, Your eyes are fine sister! This section of campsites is roomy but close enough to make visiting from any site easy. We are at Sea Pirate this weekend making notes and planning activity areas and such. Saw a NJ Transit bus stopped by the CG entrance yesterday and will ask today if there is a designated name for this stop in case Andrew comes to visit. I'll let you know later what I find out. Is there any information that you would like as far as things to do or places to visit while you are here. I'll gather what interests you and mail it if you would like.

Jim & Harriet
10-16-2010, 01:15 PM
hi Deb - and thanks.
Certainly we would love to know the name of the closest bus stop for Andrew to come
from Philly (and if it is right at the gate - even better!) As for things to do - it is a bit
early in the season the be ocean-swimming, but being able to just walk and / or sit on
the beach will be wonderful! I have not looked at the CG informatiuon but I am sure if
you selected it that it is a nice place.
talking about it makes me wish we were heading there soon... :-)
I will let you know what site # we reserve.
H
ps: just made the deposit - but we were told that we could not choose a site and
they were not assigning them. will you be doing that prior to arrival? it would be
nice to be in that "green" area.

dbylinski
10-16-2010, 03:01 PM
Harriet, They will be assigning rigs in the future as they cannot predict what the needs of the group will be. We will assign them following our turn back of sites next year and will make every effort to put the bigger rigs on the biggest sites. Hope this helps you. By all means you will know your site prior to arrival.

Jim & Harriet
10-17-2010, 10:14 AM
I am sure that whatever arrangments / assignments you
make will be fine.
You are a great organizer and we love to just come and
enjoy the rally with all the Heartlanders!
Thanks for all the work you do!

Harriet,

The North Route 9 Corridor Bus from AC will be the one headed from AC to Lakewood. I believe it is the #559. The stop is in front of the campground on Route 9 in Eagleswood, NJ, Indicated as West Creek on the chart. Here is a like to the time table.
http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0559.pdf be sure to look at page 2 for AC to Lakewood times.

We are booked! Coming in on Friday and we'll be at site #519. Yay! Deb, just FYI, they took a deposit of $64 and said that's what they are charging everyone as a deposit. The discount then I guess will be applied when we pay the remaining. So you may want to publish that deposit fee in your opening thread...cause I was surprised.

So add us to your list!!!

You are surely added to the list and I will again speak with them because depending who answers the phone it seems the story changes. They do not put one person in charge because of the winter hours and shift coverage. I will try to get to the bottom of it though. Thanks for letting me know!

Did they assign you a site number Dick? If not I'll call and get it!

Jim & Harriet
10-31-2010, 03:22 PM
hi Deb,
just read Cheryl's note - and saw she had been given a site # - I don't want
to confuse the issue but I just wanted to remind you that when we registered
we did not get a site #, and we were only charged $57 for the deposit with a balance
of $34.20 to be paid at check-in (for two nights starting on the 20th and also for any
extra nights we might add at that time.) this is close to the $46 posted fee...
I guess as long as we all bring our confirmation emails they will know what balance to
actually charge us when we arrive.

I do not envy you trying to keep all of this straight. :-)

so, if you can get us a site # too (in that "green" row) - that would be great.
thanks again for all your work on this rally!
H

dieselsweetheart
10-31-2010, 05:27 PM
I got my receipt via email and my balance due is $37.00. The lady told me they charge EVERYBODY $64 for the deposit and then they will attach the group discount at check-in. So 64 + 37 = $101 which divided by 2 nights = $50.50. Ok, that seems to be more than $46. It'll get worked out...I'm not worried about it... I'm just glad to be reserved!~

dieselsweetheart
10-31-2010, 05:28 PM
Maybe the overage is NJ tax??? That's probably what it is...

I must admit we've got a tax for everything but I'll still check on it anyway.

hillsonwheels
10-31-2010, 09:42 PM
Deb,

They didn't give me a site # when I made my reservation. Asked for a $57 deposit and thanked me very much.

Hope all's well on the NJ end of the world. Oh, by the way, we hail from FL not VA. We summer in VA.

Dick

dbylinski
11-01-2010, 05:04 AM
All is well in NJ except the amount of deposits at the CG. I'm going to try to get together with them today. FYI, they do call the dirt in the pull through sites "premium" around these parts so maybe some employees are taking deposits based upon "back in dirt" verses "premium pull-thru dirt". Either way I'll get-r-dun!

There is nothin' in the world like good ol' Jersey Campgrounds! Independent don't need your business attitudes, outdated facilities/services and overgrown with seasonals! But in light of all that (cause it's all been said before) we are going to have a great time so come on up and please bring some a yer "Hillbilly Hill" buddies with ya!

I'll fix your location - sorry! Ya get me so confused!

dieselsweetheart
11-01-2010, 05:47 AM

Jim & Harriet
11-01-2010, 03:09 PM
gosh Deb you make NJ sound so invting... we had a great time this year and expect
that will be the case next year too.
As for the deposits, perhaps our reservation info. was taken by the same person who spoke with Dick as his was
the same $57 but no site #. Our confirmation email does not mention a pull-thru or back-in. We would prefer the
pull-thru. I am sure you will get it all worked out.
If possible I would appreciate knowing where we will be parking - just to make my OCD brain happy!
thanks again for all your work - not an easy task!

Jim,

As of today, I attempted to get in touch with them and their answering system picked up everytime. I only left one message though! I'll have to wait for them to call me back. I know she said they were going to be on vacation and I think this may be the time. I will try again towards the end of the week.

Thay had said that they would prefer NOT to assign sites to afford last minute reservations by a Big Rig. All the sites in that area are good size so I really don't see that as a problem. I had already asked for Pull Thru first and then back in but they prefer to assign by rig size. I'll keep trying and myself would prefer to have sites numbers assigned.

I will also inquire into different deposit amounts.

Jersey is a great place to visit but their camping facilities are older properties and (for the most part) have not been brought up to speed! We actually love it here and that's why we want to retire in Virginia!

Jim & Harriet
11-01-2010, 07:43 PM

it will all work out... and you know what they say,

Just wanted everyone to know I am not ignoring the deposit question or the site assignments. It seems I am stuck in a game of phone tag and I am sure we will connect soon. With their reduced office hours for the winter and my increased work schedule we are having a tough time finding one another. Sorry for the delay.

dbylinski
12-08-2010, 03:08 PM
Okay! I finally got to speak with Melissa at Sea Pirate today. We are being charged different deposits because she is not permitted to over ride the computer registration process. Some of you were placed in back in sites which (under Jersey rules) cost less than pull thru sites. Hence, a lower deposit rate. Everyting will be corrected upon check in accordance to what site fee you paid at registration. I know it's complicated but...... It appears it will all work out in the end.

For those of you without site numbers you have now been assigned to pull thru sites as you requested. Please see post number one for your site assignment!

Wishing all y'all a Merry Christmas cause my ball says so!

John/Debbie

Greetings from sunny but cool (35degrees) FL.

Starting to think about routing for our camping year. When we leave here, we'll go to Cherokee. Then we're doing the Williamsburg rally.

I'm curious as to the route you would take to get to West Creek from Williamsburg. Would you run up I-95 or go down to the "chunnel" and come up the MD penninsula?

Trust ya'll had a good Christmas! Looking forward to camping in "Joisey".....

Dick

p.s. Tried to open that e-mail address to order Tees and got a message about account not being properly installed?

Tough one Dick. If you don't mind the tolls and ferry fee and some local roads as opposed to interstates and want a more relaxing ride the Bay Bridge tunnel up to the Lewes ferry.

Easy one or two day trip. If you are not in a hurry DE has two state parks not far from the ferry, one is only 5 minutes away.

Bay bridge toll is 18-30 depending on the axles and the ferry is about $80 with 2 passengers.
What you pay in ferry fees is almost a wash for fuel and tolls to go the long way around.

With the ferry you are best to make a reservation, and be on time. The ride across is about 90 minutes. roughly 2.5 hours figuring in your pre-load and off load time.

Personally I like the MD route and when making that trip I tend to do about 50/50 - half on 95 half the other way. On the bike it is always "the other way"

Jim & Harriet
01-12-2011, 02:04 PM
driving from Roanoke, VA we will have to decide on the best route also.

we did enjoy the ferry ride last year. (and yes, do make a reservation.)
but this cg location is further north so we may try the "land" route.

Hello sunny Florida! We usually go the tunnel route and up through Maryland. We don't like I-95 especially after helping a friend change a trailer tire on the driver's side. When we were finished with the tire all 4 of us had to change our shorts. As a personal preference we take the more scenic and laid back route. Not sure when you are planning on making the transition from one to another but we will be leaving Williamsburg on Monday, You are welcome to follow us home if you would like. West Creek is about 15 minutes away.

hi Deb,
I rechecked our rally file and found the directions you sent to me for travel
from our home location near I-81. we will go that way. Right now we plan
to be there on Thursday and leave on Monday. Wish it was tomorrow...
stay warm,
H

hi Deb, I try to save everything! My brain just has remember where I saved it! Here is
what you wrote an, unless you know a newer, better way - I guess it still applies...

I-81 North to 66 East to 495 toward Baltimore, cross the Key Bridge onto I-95 North. Cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge onto 295 North. Exit onto Route 70 East (Awful road with lots of lights) onto Route 72 East onto Route 9 South. 5.5 Miles and the Garmin's gonna say "you have reached your destination on the left". Welcome to NJ!

Thanx to all for the thoughts on routing.

Our home base in the summer months is near I-81 (Radford, VA) also. And, if we were gonna be there I'd probably run up the road per the e-mail. But, since we'll be in Williamsburg and have not done the tunnel and ferry I'm thinking we'll run up that way. Would be especially nice to have a "pathfinder"! :D Probably will come home the other way. We might stop over in the Annapolis, MD area. Have friends there.

Where do Mike and Ann Walker and Calvin and Judy Hicks live on the MD side? Are they close to the route up to the ferry?

Dick,If you leave Williamsburg and take the Bay Bridge Tunnel you will be on Rt. 13 We live about 5 miles off of Rt. 13 in Princess Anne Md about 2 hours from the tunnel and you will be comming that way to get to the Ferry. We are planning on attending both Rallys but we will not be taking the Ferry. Also we will be heading down your way in two weeks hope that we can meet up with you sometime, Calvin

I am calling Sea Pirate Campground today to confirm those who are registered so far. They are sometimes hard to connect with becuase of their winter hours. I see some folks have posted that they are coming but have not made a registration post. If you have registered with Sea Pirate please post that you have done so. This way I can keep our records straight! Hopefully, I will be able to update the attendees list later today.

Dick - What day are you leaving VA for NJ?
I'm still arranging vacation days and have not booked VA yet, but if we do and it works out I'm game for another Bay Bridge Ferry ride.

Can you manage a night without any hookups? Depending on the length of travel (hours) you are comfortable with, the Cape Henolopen State park is 5 minutes from the Ferry.
They have water only hookups. But if not crowded (probably won't be that time of year) an extension cord to the Cyclone could be in order for enough power to get by.

Actually if you could do it, the area in and around Lewes is a nice place to visit.
Lewes prides themselves in being the "The First Town in the First State!"

Yes, you are right Cheryl. Toy donations to Toy Run Foundation should be a new unwrapped toy. They were really busy (as you can imagine) over the holidays. My hat's off to them for the work they do. Nothing is more important to me than touching the heart of a child! Through this event we hope to touch the hearts of many.

We are at Sea Pirate this weekend and will be checking each site assignment today to make sure all y'all will be comfortable. Also checking out the newly painted activity room! This should be our last visit to the CG prior to the rally as we head off to the VA Rally on Thursday. We are getting more excited as the day grows near when we will be together with all our friends on our home "Premium Dirt"!

If you haven't already, please send me an email to NJHeartlandOwners@hotmail.com if you intend to go to the Early Arrivals Dinner at Calloway's as the head count has to be given to them this week. That is not to say that you can't change your mind and join us later, but I need to give them an idea of our head count.

REMINDER! Please don't forget our Heartland Gives Back Initiative is Toy Run Foundation of Manahawkin, NJ. Please bring an unwrapped toy(s) to be donated to this worthy cause! Again, Toy Run Foundation brings smiles and happiness to sick and needy children of Ocean County throughout the year. Visit their website by clicking HERE (http://toyrunfoundation.org/) for more information on their organization.

See you soon!

This is really going to be a different sort of situation for us! Just let me say that we will be at the rally without our Bighorn. We had a disagreement with a gas island overhang on the way home from the VA Rally and have dropped the rig at Crossroads. Insurance adjuster will be in on Wednesday and we'll know whats up then. We really feel terrible but vow the RALLY WILL GO ON!

We will be making a trip to Crossroads tomorrow to retrieve all of our rally supplies from the camper and get the rest of our stuff that we couldn't bring home today!

I guess what I'm trying to say is that we will need your understanding and I would ask for assistance from my fellow Chapter leaders that we will be bringing everything and may need some help with storage logistics.

Cheryl & Jim - Would you be so gracious as to allow us to use your site as the host site?
Greg & Beth, Mike & Ann we may need your help to hold on to some things that we will bring down on Friday!

Thursday dinner is still a go! We'll be there and expect to have a good time with friends.

As soon as my mind clears, I'll post more information. We've got a lot to think about right now BUT FEAR NOT!

I'll bet Michael will even clean out the basement and put an air mattress in there if you would prefer/want privacy (lol)! Just let us know.

Thanks so much for your emails, calls and every kind word you all have spoken! This is the sort of time that brings out the best in people! We are so glad to have the chance to surround ourselves with the best of the best!!!!

A little unfinished business:

Bill & Jerry have offered us the upstairs bed - They'll sleep on the air bed...
Mike and Ann have offered an air mattress in the basement.....

Wow, I didn't really realize how much stuff is necessary for a rally. Most of the stuff was already in the BH and now there is a very large pile of stuff in the dining room, a pile of stuff by the door, stuff in the truck, man we got stuff everywhere. Might take more than one trip to get all the stuff there and hence the reason why we take trailers to the rally! We need them to cart the stuff!

Everyone travel safe and we'll see you tomorrow or Friday. Hope the weather holds out so we can have our pot luck on the upper pool deck. It looks so inviting!

I am sick of rain... It is not looking very promising.... I don't think we are going to make it... I was out there putting the hitch in the truck tonight, and the truck alone is sinking in... It would be one thing if I had a straight shot out... but I have to back up... and make a looping turn in the yard to get out... where I have to turn is pretty soft and soggy.

I was looking forward to our 1st time out this year and seeing all of you again...

Now (unless we change our mind last minute tomorrow AM), I have to figure out what we have to do to cancel out of the rest of the weekend... and cut our losses.

Everyone that is able to make the trip... have safe travels... and enjoy the Rally.

Did I mention that I am really SICK of rain?!?:(:(

05-19-2011, 08:17 PM
I could live with tearing up the yard... my fear is that the truck tires will load up and we will get hung up... or the camper will sink out of sight... no clue what we would do then... sigh.... again, have I mentioned that I am sick of rain... 1.75 inches in the last 3.5 days... and something like 10" in the last month... we had ~3 feet of in our back yard from a flood on April 28th and we really have not dried out since... The camper is parked ~20 feet higher than where the water was... and actually was not even here yet at that point.

Thanks for the well wishes!

Sitting on the front deck of our "Temporary Rally Headquarters". It's foggy and cool but not raining! We have a great view of the pool and although it looks inviting, I doubt there will be any takers. It may be the perfect opportunity to place some wagers though!

The East Coast rain has played a hard game this spring. I can assure you all that if you get the rig to the highway we are fine here. Campground roads are in great shape and sites are looking good. Some soft spots but it is very doable for what the area has been through lately! This morning's news report showed possibility of thunderstorms today mostly "late" and clearing tomorrow! Had nice sun all day yesterday! (It was a welcome situarion for sure!) Calvin, Judy, Dick and Reta spent the day in Atlantic City walking the boardwalk. Judy lost $5 but came out of there with some nice Showboat Beads around her neck!

Last night's dinner at Calloway's was well attended by 20 Heartlander's who are already here! We planned to have a campfire but the lightning showed up and as I don't do lightning, we made a prompt exit for the safety of our quarters!

We surely hope everyone can get their rigs out and come on down! John and I know full well how devistating damage to your rig can be so we understand completely if you opt not to attend. Naturally, we are hoping all will be well and we'll see you this afternoon! Afterall, if we share rig tours, you all will want to see our current layout of the "Rally Headquarter's"! It's like no other layout available in the current product line! Again, we have to thank John and Mary Ann Proto for our weekend accommodations!

Having fun so far and hoping all y'all travel safe! See you soon!

PS: Dick, is "All Y'all one word or two? It should be one if I'm hearing it right!
PSS: Duane and Debbie made a daylight entry! Go figure? Actually, their Cyclone looked really impressive from the table at Calloway's as they passed by on their way to Sea Pirate! Nice you guys!

Wow, what a day! Beautiful sunshine, great friends! Took off for a trip to Barnegat Light and some ventured up the steps for a beautiful view of Barnegat Bay! Came back and had a Hot Dog luncheon on the upper pool deck! Thanks to Mike Walker and Bill Stewart for acting as the Chief Hot Dog Chefs! This afternoon we spent the day on the volleyball court with a no rules game of Beach Volleyball. We laughed until our guts hurt! Crossroads dinner was awesome as usual and we thank Dina and the crew for a tremendous meal! Balloon darts for Heartland branded items took place after dinner and the the big prize giveaways after that. Everyone is retiring to the fire but just one note: John Proto won the Height Detection monitoring system and his thoughts are we should follow him from now on! Ouch but true! Thanks to Cheryl and Jim, Greg and Beth, Mike and Ann for all their help. I have to get to the fire so I'll post the pics soon!

What a fun rally and it was so nice to see everyone again and meet new people. Heartlanders are the best. Even received monetary donations for my Babies Wrapped in Love blanket drive in Goshen...really touched my heart to have folks I just met want to help out. Thank you!!!

It was a nice way to relax! The staff of Sea Pirate said kudo's to everyone "great group" come back anytime! I'll post the pics tomorrow afternoon 'cause I'm tarred!

Thanks to everyone who helped us throughout the weekend and special thanks to our Northeast Chapter Leaders for all their assistance throughout the event.

Just want to say how nice it was to finally put some faces to the names of the newest New Jersey Chapter Members! I had such a great time and can't wait to get together again.

Jim and I are in site 16 and Greg and Beth are in site 15. Book now as sites may get full...this is a nice park!! It has a very nice lake and have boats and kayaks for rent...

Also, you need to call the Elkhart Fairgrounds to let them know you are coming in on Sunday....which is a few days earlier than the rally officially starts. DO NOT CALL JIM BELETTI....he is not in charge of extra days...in fact, he is off on vacation now...touring the Holy Land.... call the Fairgrounds directly. I posted the # on the Portersville (PA) rally thread...

We are half way to summer base. No thanks to GPS which kept wanting to send us north also. :( I believe we drove into a time warp or something on the way here to Colonial Beach, VA. No cable and the air channels are Japanese, Spanish, English and a channel that gives a preponderance of Russian stuff?!?!?!? :confused: Waddup wit dat? Regardless.....arrived at interim stop safely. :D

We'll pile on and give KUDOS to the "rally hos". ;) Ya'll done good. Sure glad Protos came along to act as "interpretuh." ;) We southerners don't speak the same language as you "Joisey" folks.


Be safe everone and safe trippin' on the way to your next destination!

Dick, where are you staying in Colonial Beach? Been in there by boat many times in the past, but never to a campground. Only know of a (I think) an Outdoor World membership CG in the area.

Deb and John we had a great time as always. It was great to see everybody again and can't wait until the next rally. We got home safe and sound parked the rig and I'm mapping out my way to Portersville see you all soon. Thanks to Cross Roads and to eveyone who made it happen.

We are home safe and sound rolled in about 2:00 pm. Deb and John thanks for another great rally we had a blast. The campground was great and the food and all our Heartland friends only made it better. Looking forward to PA and on to Goshen.

Thanks

Glad everyone is home safe! Duane, Debbie, Bill and Jerry are probably getting ready to light their last Sea Pirate campfire and enjoying their extended stay!

Gus,

We are at that Outdoor World CG. It is part of our TT package. By far, it is the nicest one we have camped in since buying into TT. Except, with the TV reception, I believe we have entered the twilight zone! :confused: Some folks may think that's where I belong anyway. :rolleyes: We've definitely decided we'll be back here.

Sorry you folks won't be in Goshen. You surely did miss a great camp out in West Creek! It'll be another hard act to follow. John and Deb hit a home run!

We got home about 5:30, stopped for breakfast with Patti's sister for 1 1/2 hr was good to see here again. As for the NJ rally, it would have been hard to have any more FUN. Debbie and John you hit a homer with this rally!!! everything was great. We'll see everyone again at the PA rally and Goshen. OH and now we're dealing with severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings till 2am, Fun -Fun

Well - that is about right

And thanks to whomever left that half bottle of Penguin wine - it did not go to waste :cool:
