Palmetto State Unit 22 had fun at the Region 3 Rally

There were 12 rigs and 23 members of our unit that were able to attend the Region 3 Rally held recently in Hiawassee, GA at the GA Mountain Campgrounds.   It appears that everyone had a good time and really enjoyed getting together for fun, fellowship and adventure. Looks like a beautiful place to camp! There were helpful seminars and enjoyable entertainment, and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends from other units in Region 3.

April “Spring Fling” Rally was a very cool happening!

The title of the post may be a little corny but it got downright chilly at night during the Spring Fling Rally. We had a great rally! It was a joint effort with the Southeast Bus Nuts and another RV group from Coastal NC. It was fun meeting so many friendly folks and sharing stories and experiences. We had about 12 attend from our Airstream unit, which included 2 guests who were checking out a rally for the first time. Camping with the Bus Nuts is always fun. It was great seeing the insides of some of the buses, and seeing all the talent and creativity that goes into the conversions. And we always enjoy Ed and Ann’s famous monkey bread!

March Rally at Barnyard Campground

We had 8 rigs attend the March Rally at the Barnyard RV Park and Flea Market near Columbia, SC, including new members who were on their way for a long trip out West. The weather was sunny and warm until Sunday when it snowed but most of the group posed outside briefly in the snow for a group picture. The group enjoyed a Saturday breakfast of “omelets in a bag” and a potluck supper in the campground’s meeting room. Our unit president, Terry Montgomery, shared his knowledge about tires with the group. The rally ended on Sunday morning after a church service provided by unit chaplain Paul Welch.

We’re hoping for warm Spring weather in April (7th thru the 9th) for the Spring Fling Rally,  our first rally of the season at Palmetto Cove RV Park in Cleveland, SC. Keep in mind that if  your health doesn’t allow you to tow your unit at this time, you can always stay in a  nearby cabin and join us for the rally events. Solitude Pointe cabins are right up the road.

If you missed the Feb rally, you missed a good time at Myrtle Beach!

We had 12 members and 3 guests attend the Feb rally at PirateLand Family Campground at Myrtle Beach. The weather was breezy but sunny and we enjoyed a view of the Snow Moon (Feb full moon) over the ocean on Friday night. We had Happy Hour at George and Martha’s motorhome every evening and enjoyed  delicious  seafood and a wonderful Italian meal with the group on Friday and Saturday. Add to that some relaxing (or invigorating) walks on the beach (depending on what day you were on the beach), plenty of fellowship, other good meals with friends, and you get a wonderful rally! It served as a good reminder that Spring and lots more camping is just around the corner.

One couple decided they were not ready to de-winterize their trailer and chose to stay in a rental cabin at the campground, which proved to be very comfortable and convenient. A nice alternative if you want to join the fun but don’t want to tow!

2017 Camping Rally season is just around the corner……

We held our first gathering of the new year last Saturday – lunch at the Silver Bay Seafood restaurant in Simpsonville. We had a good turnout of 23 members. Welcome to our new member Steve who joined us! All  were eager to catch up on the news and make some plans for the start of Rally season in February. It was great to see everyone who was there and those friends who did not make it were missed.

February 10-12 is our Meet at the Beach Rally in Myrtle Beach. Join us at Pirateland Campground for a fun weekend of fellowship, Krispy Kreme donuts, food, games and beach time.

June Grandkids Rally had highest attendance ever!

DSC_0615 DSC_0621 thumb_DSC_0644_1024We had 12 Grandkids attend the rally this year, a record attendance in our memory. There were several new attendees as well as our regular campers. The kids enjoyed swimming in the river behind the campground, games, a movie, make-your-own pizza, crafts and s’mores. The adults enjoyed watching the kids have fun, and wishing they had their energy! Eating was another feature of the rally, of course. We had delicious BBQ that was made by one of the grandkids, and yummy spaghetti and meat sauce.
