Talked to Hogan & Donna a few weeks ago - they have done a fantastic job. I hope they still participate, we love seeing them. Pat & Wyndy will be there - looking forward to seeing everyone.

Hope everyone has a great time in Gulf Shore but the Traveling Talleys will not be able to attend as we are committed to being in KY for a College Alumni weekend at Transylvania University (Malcolm's alma mater).

2psnapod will, once again, be missing our AlaMissiBamaSsipi family and not be making it to the rally. ONE day we will be back! Love you all....have a wonderful time!

02-06-2015, 11:59 AM
Sorry you guys can't make it. Hope all is going good for you. We will miss you at Goshen as we will be getting an early start on our trip to Alaska this summer. Keep in touch.

Jerry & Lily

Awww Jerry! I was really hoping to see you and Lily in Goshen! Have a wonderful trip!

Unfortunately we are already committed to another rally that week. It will be close to Gulf Shores, so maybe we can at least swing down one day and visit.

Just made reservations for AL rally. Was assigned site 127 on Bear Rd. Will arrive on 20th and depart on 27th. Laurie out sick so I dealt with Ashley. Look forward to seeing y'all again. By the way...no recent progress on '36.

Dick...HOC # 1068

We (Bill and Susan) have successfully reserved site 157 on Bear Road for April 20th through the 27th. We have a large site, so if we need to have a place to get together, we should have plenty of room. Dick and Reta Hill (hillsonwheels) are the only others that have a reservation as of today.

It's time to start calling the park to reserve your site before they stop holding the sites on Feb. 16th.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again!!

02-09-2015, 05:00 PM
Pat & Wyndy are on Site 132

02-09-2015, 05:28 PM
Valerie - We will miss y'all! You've been a regular at the spring Rally! Have fun at the Alumni Weekend - but, not as much fun as you would have had with us! HA! Hope to see y'all in Goshen.

Thank you for the heads up this is a test.


02-09-2015, 07:58 PM
Hey Dick - see that you are going to this rally. Be careful of those wiggly, sliver-y things. Don't want you to have the surprise you had last year.

02-09-2015, 08:03 PM
Dave: Glad to see you have the new rig. Can't wait to see it in person! Congrats!!

02-11-2015, 10:28 AM
Bill we just made reservations and we will be at site #131. We will arrive on 4/20/15 and leave to come home on 4/28/15. Looking forward to seeing everybody.

02-11-2015, 01:46 PM
Great to see that 6 of us have registered so far. Hope many more reserve a site before Monday (16th)!! We would love to have 25-30 rigs at the rally!!

02-12-2015, 09:41 PM

We plan on arriving on the 23rd and leaving the 26th if all goes as planned. Will be on site #149.

Ricky and Rachel,

Glad to see you'll be with us!!

Okay everyone - if you haven't reserved a site at Gulf State Park yet, please hurry and call them! You can still reserve a site after Monday (16th), but you may not get a site on Bear Road. It's important to attend - and encourage each other. There will be lots of stuff to do!! COME ON DOWN!

03-06-2015, 01:37 PM
Bill and Susan, Sign up the Mississippi Coopers for the Gulf Shores Rally. We have reservation on Bear Road for April 20-26 and looking forward to a great Rally.

Great News!! We're up to 11 rigs registered for the Rally!! WOO-HOO!!!

If anyone is considering attending, please hurry and call the park!! You can still get a site on Bear Road!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

04-17-2015, 02:52 PM

Great News!! We're up to 15 Rigs registered now- including a couple of first timers!!

We hope to organize a road trip to see the Blue Angels in Pensacola on Wednesday morning. The pilots will be available for autographs after the show. More details provided at the Rally.

I'm sure there will be a few of us taking in the "Bama Coast Cruise" Car Show at Orange Beach on Friday and/or Saturday. There will be MANY awesome custom cars and trucks there.

Friday night: We'll have a campfire meet-and-greet after supper. (Hopefully at site 157)

Saturday: 8:30AM wheel bearing packing demo by Bob Mansolino at site 131.
6:00PM BAR-B-QUE provided by Heartland Owners Club (location to be provided at the Rally)

Bring your favorite side dish or dessert to share - and your own beverages.
Door Prizes will be given away afterwards.

We'll also try to help organize a trip to the Tanger Outlet Mall if anyone is interested.

Some of the golfers may want to organize a golf outing also....?

Susan and I will be arriving Monday (20th) and will depart Monday (27th).

Can't wait to see everyone!!

Travel safe!
Bill and Susan
