Love to join everyone, but that is the opening weekend of our seasonal site. And being the "Activities Director" for them, requires me to be there on opening weekend. See everyone in Gettysburg.

I've had a few people ask me what is this "Not a Rally" rally? 

We've been doing this for 10 years now and from others recommendations, I normally plan a group camping rally once a month from March thru November. 
We've had:

Everyone is welcome, it's free and it will change your camping experience. Yes, it's free.  The website actually cost money every year because there is no cost to our members and just have a few advertisers.  Today, many post their pictures and ask questions on Facebook for 'likes' and immediate satisfaction because that's society today.  The main thing we've done here is enjoyed camping and met great people that many now call friends. 

Our typical weekend, everyone books their own sites.  We have a campfire Friday evening and potluck/campfire Saturday evening.  Some will go for a walk, hike or bike.  Sometimes tour others campers.  Mostly tell stories and share our lives.  Get involved in as much or as little as you wish.

Sorry, back to the question.  We have a rally planned in May already and I'm camping at French Creek SP this weekend with my son's scout troop so mentioned that it's not a rally but anyone's welcome to camp.  There is about 10 sites booked and apparently the "it's not a rally" is now a rally.

I like it. I had considered tent camping overnight friday and seeing if my grand daughter could come. Will there be other kids than your sons Boy Scout troop :ranger: for her to get to know?

Great!  My wife and 2 of our 3 daughters will be there Saturday after play rehearsal and a softball game.  HuskyCampers have a new boy, samebutdifferent have 2 sons, MarcS has a daughter, TheBFam have a son and daughter, Vik-king has a son and daughter, MariskaHargitay is immature.

I think the smallest CC rally was 5 participants! You missed that one due to tow vehicle issues.

Cool. I am waiting to hear from my grandaughter who just turned 12. My wife Carol might be co-erced into coming too but she has a busy friday and may not be up to it. Our campers are still closed up for the season but we like to tent it sometimes. Looking forward to meeting new camping families.

Cora and I will be over after school on Friday.  We are looking forward to a nice weekend for our first trip of the season.

(smallest CC rally I've attended was Fall Foliage rally 2011 Frances Slocam- I think it was just me, Guitarman Steve, and his dog Mocha we still had a great time)

MariskaHargitay is immature.

Fighting words, or maybe drinking words.  :rofl:

I know we're not-talking-food for the not-a-rally, so I won't say that it's Cinqo De Maio weekend, and that we're not bringing crockpot cheeseyburger and taco shells.

What, NO 2happycampers?  My truck is making noise and I need Rob to tell me what wrong... besides it's a Dodge.  Oh and we'll miss you.

On another note, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo.  Did someone say margaritas?

That noise is the motor it must be running. A noise not normally heard from a Ram.

Wow, you folks are a great bunch and Carol and I are glad we could join you for part of the weekend. We are definitely sorry we could not join in the pot luck but expect we will have plenty of others to enjoy. Thanks again for the more than warm welcome.
