Hey John what kind of wheels are we talking about.

jdfishing
10-19-2014, 09:25 PM
Hey Chuck: New P/U on new wheels. I have been a Chevy owner my entire life, but two design issues may force me into a Dodge Ram, which is not a bad choice at all. #1: Fender wheel wells that are essentially square and have absolutely no classy look whatsoever: #2: Placing the urea container directly behind the passenger wheel and below the frame. That is just dumb, in my opinion. I use the 4x4 function on my truck and that tank would be crushed in short order. So, unless Chevy wises up, they have lost my business.

We are planning a possible trip to visit my brother in the Lake Tahoe area next summer or fall and may try to plan it around attending an HOC Rally.

Perhaps this rally is the one!

How far away is this rally from Lake Tahoe?

We'll be coming from Denver, Colorado.

Hi John, We camp at Tahoe a lot! We can leave the Reno/Sparks area and be at Lake Tahoe and set-up in 1-hour. Go roads to and from. We'd love to have you at the Rally in 2015. If you need any additional information, please feel free to post on this site or send me a PM.

We made our reservation at Sparks Marina RV Park for the 10th through the 15th. It appears there are some who are going to caravan on the 14th to Jackson and some on the 15th.

If there are two caravans, that could be interesting for the small towns we go through on Highways 395 and 88. What would you think if you saw a bunch of Heartland fifth wheels and trailers rolling through your town two days in a row?

We will be staying at this park on our way to Vegas for a couple of nights for the National. It would be cool to have a pre pre National Rally here in 2016. I was thinking Sept. 29th (Thursday) leaving Oct 2 (Sunday) and then the long drive to Las Vegas to join the pre National Rally on the 2nd. If Jackson were a few days later next year, they could go back to back. That would be an impressive convoy headed south on the 95!

Can a couple of mid-westerners join in?


We are taking an extended RV trip with our grandson late this summer on a tour of National Parks. He will be flying home from Salt Lake City over Labor Dayweek-end for school, and we will be taking a more leisurely route home to Michigan. We had a great time at our first National Rally in Goshen a couple of week ago, and it made us excited to attend others. Since we will be so close to your rally, we thought we would head west from SLC to join your festivities. I will have to make our camping reservations tomorrow as I see their office is closed,but we are planning to arrive on September 9th and leave on September 14 to head back to Utah for their rally.

Looking forward to our second chapter rally with you!

I think it would be great to have you join us at the Sparks Rally. Just wanted to pop in and say Welcome... we had a great time at last years rally and we are looking forward to this years rally. I see that you may have already made reservations... if not here is the phone number (775) 851-8888 to the Sparks Marina RV Park. Look forward to meeting you.

Thanks for the welcome. We are looking forward to the event. Have you ever taken in the Balloon Race? If so, any thoughts on which morning would be best to attend. Right now, I'm leaning towards Friday morning before the rally officially starts. Don't want to have create any scheduling conflicts if I can avoid it.

WeRWilsons

Paul and Brenda,

The balloons are one of the things we are looking forward to the most... I have to agree that Friday would likely be the best day...even though there doesn't seem to be a great many morning activities during the few rallies that we have attended.

Hey Paul - Glad to hear you will be at the Sparks Rally. It was fun visiting with you in Goshen. We used the map for MI you had given me on our trip back through there and into WI. We stayed in Traverse City and Mackinaw City just like we talked about - what a beautiful state you have. We also got to dip our feet in 3 of the Great Lakes. I wish we could have spent more time there but had to get back to Idaho. It will be good to see you again in Sparks. Travel safe.

Hi George and Laura: For now, we are still planning on attending your rally. I ordered a 2016 RAM and the delivery date will be around the end of July, I hope. I should be able to get the new hitch in shortly after I take delivery, so I hope all goes well. I'll keep you updated on the status.

Delivery date is the end of August, not July.

Hello All,
We will not be at this rally so it doesn't affect us, but the last time we tried to stay at this park, they refused our dog. We have a German Shepherd .... The most friendly and gentle girl you can imagine. Anyway, the park had a list of breeds they wouldn't allow due to insurance restrictions.

It would be nice if they have changed their policy, but it might be worth confirming, especially if you own one of "those" breeds that are sometimes restricted.

Hopefuuly my info is outdated. It would be nice to be able to stay at Sparks since it is so close to everything. If anyone can't stay at Sparks but wants to attend rally events, the KOA at Bordertown looked pretty nice when we drove through last August.

Take Care and think of us while you rally and I'm back at school with all of my jr high kids.

Sparks Rally Attendees: I have a quantity of discount coupons for the Cabela's store in Reno. It is located on the west end of Reno on I-80. If you were planning on stopping as you head to the rally, you might want to wait on making your purchase until you get the coupons. I believe you save $20 if you spend $150. I have more than enough to go around and I'll be at the RV Park on Thursday 9/10/15 to hand them out to everybody along with the goody bags + cereal. Got to stay regular:rolleyes:.

The Legends Outlet Mall also has VIP goody bags for each rig. There is a coupon in the bag that you will redeem at the Mall Office to get discount coupons for various stores at the mall.

If you get a moment you can check out the hot air balloons that will be here next weekend at www.renoballoon.com (http://www.renoballoon.com).

See you all next week,

We would like to thank you again for all your hard work in putting together your rally. We really enjoy this park and admire the pride management takes in keeping the entire facility so clean and organized.

What an enjoyable rally!!! You did a terrific job getting things organized, arranging for Happy Daze to be here and rounding up all the goodies..thank you! We are so glad we got up at 3:00 AM to go see the Great Reno Balloon Race....what an experience!!! :o

As Paul said above, we truly enjoyed meeting new folks and getting to know friends from previous rallies even better!

This was a great location...very nice and well-maintained park, and close to good restaurants and sights to see. The office staff was very friendly and responsive to
numerous requests to extend stays due to the cancellation of the Jackson Rally. (So sad that was cancelled!)

Thanks to TJ and Happy Daze for their sponsorship and participation!

We look forward to seeing you and Laura again at future rallies! If possible, we hope you can come up to Washington next July for the rally in Anacortes!

Take care and safe travels,

Thank you George and Laura for a great rally. We really enjoyed ourselves and appreciated all of your effort in making sure all went smoothly. Planning the rally during the Balloon Festival was great timing. It was well worth the effort of getting up at 0300 to see the spectacular event. We look forward to attending your future rally's and seeing you guys at other events. Let the big dog RAM's rule the road.
