Additional Info:

The 2012 Maryland HOC Rally is set. We will return to Castaways for another great weekend. If you were unable to attend last year don't let this opportunity pass you by in 2012. This campground is beautiful and minutes from Ocean City. We have 30 sites being held which are in the same area as last year, Sites 172 - 182, 184 - 200, and 205 and 206. The CG does not have as much flexibility as last year with early arrivals and late departures as this is their busy season so if you want to extend your stay you should call and book early. Note the CG is closed for the Winter so if you don't reach a person when you call be sure to leave a message and your call will be returned. Also please remember to let them know you are booking for the MD Heartland Rally so you are given the discounted rate. Once your reservation is made please let us know so we can include you on the attendee list. If you are bringing a pet, please be sure to bring along their rabies certification (not just their rabies tag). Other rally information will be posted as events are finalized.

The Heartland Gives Back charity for our rally will be Worcester County G.O.L.D. (Giving Other Lives Diginity). They are a non-profit organization providing financial aid to children in foster care, vulnerable adults, and families in crisis. We would like to focus our donations on the children and concentrate on school supplies or gift cards to WalMart or Food Lion. For more information on Worchester County G.O.L.D. you can go to their website at www.Worcestergold.org (http://www.Worcestergold.org).

Wow, we are looking forward to seeing the other Walker clan.
Guess we need to put Debra & Gus in a bubble to protect them against evil germs so they don't miss the Castaway's experience again.

Castaways? Awesome place! We had a blast there at the 2011 MD rally. Not sure if we'll make it in 2012, but for those who were not there for the 2011 rally, try to make this one. And plan on coming in a few days early to spend time on the boardwalk in Ocean City. Fun fun!

Well, we decided to not head west for the summer/fall of 2012. So, that could be either bad or good news for the MD rally. Have left a message at Castqways. Prolly will make reservations for 23-27 AUG. Will advise you when we know more.

Saw the delay involved with Greg's reservation attempt. Is that the norm? Or do you know?

Hope all's well on your end. As Eric sez............"RALLYON"...........

Even tho it's looking like we won't make this one, as our Rally attendance is going to be sharply curtailed this year - due to an old dog and two kids (our dog sitters) now working 12 or 24 hour shifts on most weekends - I've started putting the location map together: I will update as folks join. Might book a site tho, just in case we can make it. Would depend on the kids schedules and the weather, if we'd have to bring the dogs along...

At any rate, here's where everyone is:

Ok, we have a question... We are trying to figure out if we can make this one. Has anyone taken the ferry over? Can anyone give me an idea how much it would cost one way to do that?

dbylinski
02-13-2012, 05:50 PM
Donna, we have taken the ferry in the past. It is costly and really doesn't save any time on the trip. From our house to that area is about a 3 hour trip by car + fuel and $6.00 toll. To take the ferry you actually pay by the foot so it depends on the length of your rig overall + additional passengers (only the driver is included) + 90 minute ride across the bay + 1 hour to the ferry and sitting waiting to load the boat.....sitting waiting to get off the boat.....

We believe it is cheaper to drive around but you are closer to the boat so it may be better for you.

Try this link (http://www.capemaylewesferry.com/Schedules-Fares) for more info

we looked it up.. we were trying to figure it all out.. after figuring it will cost us about the same either way.. IF we do it we will most likely just drive down. (Rob doesn't want anything to happen to the trailer on the ferry). He talked to a friend who lost his awning because they kept making him move over and over and finally ripped the arms right off the trailer. I keep working on him and we'll see!

We've traveled the ferry twice and had no problem. It cost $90 one way however...that's including the passenger.

We've done the ferry on motorcycles, cars, trucks and the 5th wheel. It is is a bit costly, doesn't really save any time or money (probably costs more) but occasionally it is a nice diversion. The most expensive trip was when we took 12 high schooler's down to Delaware for a ROTC meet. Well over a $100!

It does work out better if you plan on staying at the state park right outside the Lewes Ferry port.

Personally, I think we should leave the "scoring" stuff out of the conversations, at least before the event. Not everyone is comfortable backing their rigs in.

Been there and done that. Nothing more nerve wracking then your first solo trip on a 65' boat with wind and tide fighting you and the owners showing up on the dock to see how you do.

Leo’s RV Recreation Center, our local dealer, has made a very generous donation towards our Saturday Potluck Dinner so we were able to hire a local caterer to provide a pulled pork and a chicken entrée. Now all we need are our great Heartland cooks to bring a side or dessert dish and we'll be all set. We will need 11 people to make a bean dish (baked beans, black bean salad, etc.); 11 people to make a potato or macaroni salad; 10 people to make cole slaw; and 11 people to make a dessert. Each dish should feed between 8 to 10 people. Please let us know what you would like to bring and we will post it on the first page of our rally thread.

Can't wait to get on the road. Haven't been able to drive for 3 weeks. It will be nice to get out of the house. Going to spend 4 days at Frontier Town and head down the road to Castaways on Wednesday. Looks like nice cooler weather for the week.

This is an "informational - not to worry" heads up.

Our one pup, Sir Regis, started having seizures shortly after Lake George.

He is currently on meds and we are working on getting his "loading level" set in his system.

So, the point is, at any time he may drop and start his dance. He will be OK after a minute or two and a be bit lethargic for awhile afterwords.

We will be able to handle these episodes OK (some of us better then the other) so, not to worry. It it best to not show emotion or try to jump in and help.

He doesn't "foam at the mouth" or have bladder bowel issues during these events.

If you have children coming you might want to educate them a bit so they are not unduly alarmed.

And when he is back on his feet he will accept all affection.

Mike and Ann,

I doubt it makes much difference, but I just realized that we changed our arrival and departure dates, but never posted the new dates here...

We are now arriving on 8/22 and leaving 8/27. We are traveling with Greg and Beth... so it is probably a safe assumption that they are holding to the same schedule that we have :D...

We got flooded in and could not make it last year... and as I sit here typing this, it has started raining.... NOOOOOOO!:mad:

We are looking very forward to seeing everyone and also to checking out this amazing Campground that everyone has been raving about!

See everyone in less than one week!

MIKE & ANN: We have been out of the loop (my normal situation) since we offered to bring dessert (YES, you are correct, I like ICE COLD BEER better than dessert). We lost Deb's dad a week ago and we just have been out straight. Looking forward to getting back to camping and eating (oh yeah, and drinking) with friends but will still have to go to Deb's moms house at least once or twice.

Are we still on for dessert or do you need us to bring something else?:confused:

Yes the beer goes down better when "down the ocean" because you are at sea level.

Just want to compliment all attendees at the Maryland Rally for your patience and courage during dinner last night. We had a great BBQ and wonderful side dishes served up with downpouring rain, thunder and lightning. Everyone made the best of the situation and showed an extraordinary ability to cope with the conditions. Tent City gave the Maryland Chapter the ability to go on with their plan and although not a perfectly dry structure, our "Tent City Crew" did an awesome job.

We owe everyone who helped in any way a great big thank you! No matter what we could not have defended ourselves from that type of storm and attempts to address our comfort went above and beyond the call! The patience the attendees showed put the "Heart" in Heartland once again!

ps: My phone has stopped texting me "Severe Weather Alerts" so it's time to get out and about, make the coffee and have some fun!
