Main menu now has all the rallies listed for this year. Thanks Phil for fixing me.

You can see them on the main menu.

You can see them on this board.

Our you can see a list with links here.

The campground is fine with using a site to gather.  It is there opening weekend and they will be very slow.

FYI - the campground does not currently have ice but it is available within 3 miles of the campground.
Chester County Beverage, 5802 W Lincoln Hwy, Parkesburg, PA 19365 sells ice, 8 lbs for $1.75, 40 lbs for $5.50

There is firewood .9 mile from the campground, 1/2 cord for $100.  $12-$15 per site

Wonder what the campground looks like right now?  It's beautiful!
See everyone tomorrow evening.

Matt, your truck only looks half full.  Is that all the Toyotas can handle?

The campground is planning to hopefully clean up sites as needed on Wednesday, they are expecting that most the snow is gone before then with the 50 degree temperatures today and tomorrow.

General Campfire Discussion / Worse SPUT Ever

I don't know if anyone else has done it but today I closed up everything in the camper and when I went to hook up the truck.... NO KEYS.  Checked my clothes and everything in the tow vehicle.  I raised the roof half way... didn't find them.  :anono1: Raised the roof the remaining way... nothing.  :sotired: Pulled out one bunk end and then the slide out... still nothing.  :-[

I found them, not in the camper or the tow vehicle... but I found them.  :banghead:

These are pretty cool propane tank covers for $25 each if you want to customize the camper a little.

This thing makers ice every 8 minutes. I'm impressed.

it is not very insulated so the ice can melt and drain back into the water reservoir if you don't use it or transfer to an ice chest.

Scored a new Igloo ICE109 Compact Ice maker for $25

Don't know that we will bring it every weekend but definitely on longer weekends.

Does anyone else use one?  Would you recommend it?

Appliances / Heat Strip Install
« on: February 22, 2017, 10:54:05 PM »
After a lot of research, I installed a heat strip in my A/C unit.  It gives me additional free heat at the campsite, better circulation, and hides the exterior noise when the kids are sleeping.  It does not replace the furnace or other heating source but provides 5600 BTU, usually a separate circuit so eliminates breakers tripping.

The coleman/RVP air conditioning units have new knobs with the unit and thermostat control.  The DuoTherm/Dometic units do not have thermostat control and is not recommended to be run for more than 4 hours at a time.

FYI - it costs about $45 and can be installed is 2 screws and one plug.

Worth the money

Kids, Pets & Relatives / K9 Seat Belt
« on: February 22, 2017, 09:30:59 PM »
We have 2 dogs that travel with us everywhere.  They love the car and the first thing they do is jump in the front/drivers seat.

We just purchased two Paw Prime dog seat belts, a pet restraint device designed to help protect you and your pet while traveling in an automobile.  Simply clip onto your pet harness or collar and snap the belt tab right into the seat belt receptacle of your vehicle, securing your pet into place. With an adjustable length, the Paw Prime Seatbelt accommodates dogs both small and large of up to 100 Lbs.
