Is there a new update on this rally?  I'm making the plans to come down, if everything works out, and wanted to check on how it is shaping up!

Thanks, Brian

Someone may have posted Palmetto's web address, here it is if not:   

http://palmettocove.com/     

Kyle can add to this, but I don't believe that they take reservations.  There's plenty of sites so not to worry. 
The only requirement is that whatever camping gizmo you reside in must be fully self contained.  Since most sites have water, power and dump, "self-contained" is easy to accomplish. 
There are no bathhouses or tent camping areas.

Should those that use maps and GPS and like what appears to be shortcuts, and arriving from the NW, unless you have remarkable brakes and are accustomed to driving in the "old" mountain roads, avoid coming down Hwy 276 out of Brevard.   Use the interstate.   Caesar's Head is interesting in a car, it'll be a challenge in most coaches.   
Kyle and Jon can advise regarding the best way in from various directions.   Hwy 11 is a good road.   

For two cents I'd dewinterize the bus this weekend....but after this cold winter  Angry, I'll give it another couple of weeks...

As a reminder, I-40 near the NC/TN line is still closed...however expected at least based on info from two weeks ago supposed to reopen the 1st week of April.
Check before committing coming from the Knoxville area.  However if coming from KY and TN, take I-81 to I-26 in Johnson City, TN and come on down the hill!

It's great that there's wide interest in this spring rally!
Two highlights include the Friday walking tour of the BMW plant down in Spartanburg, SC. There is a $5 extra charge p.p. on this, and sign-ups are limited to 40. See me upon arrival at Palmetto to get on the list. No open toed shoes or heels, ladies. Thanks to Tom Hamrick for setting this up!
The other sightseeing highlight is Saturday's vineyard tour, tasting and luncheon. Modest extra charges here too, depending on whether you want just the tour, the tasting and/or the light lunch. Again, see me upon arrival to get on the list. Thanks to Ed and Ann Gallant for the arrangements!
See you in Palmetto Cove!
Mike and Carol Heron
PS:  Thanks guys for the updates to driving instructions!

We're firming up our plans to attend.  I have to finish installing the twin beds where the queen bed used to be, but that will not take long.  Other than that and an oil change, I guess none of the other work is going to be done till we get back!  Do we need to pre-register for the rally, or sign up and pay when we get there?  I noted that there are no reservations at the park, so I guess that is OK.  We do want to tour the BMW plant, I run a BMW engine in one of my race cars, so that would be cool (a 1972 engine, not a new one, so I won't be looking for spare parts...).

Anyway, we are close enough that you can put us on the list, Brian Evans and Catherine Gill, and a 1980 MCI MC-5C

Just a reminder that bus nuts are strongly encouraged to register ahead for the April 20-25 April in the Carolinas Rally. We're asking for everyone who plans to come to get their reg'n in by April 10th, so we can adequately prepare enough food, prizes, etc. The rates again are $39. per coach (two people), and $20 for each extra person. This is exclusive of camping, which is $20 per night, payable to the campground.
You can copy and paste the below registration form if you can't find the real one on the Rallies and Events section of this site:

         (Mail to Carol Heron, 2125 Dunwoody Heritage Drive, Atlanta, GA  30350)

I'm so looking forward to this rally!

I didn't winterize the tin turd before leaving Bussin10 & experienced low teens on the way back, so I'll be finding out this weekend if the water lines need attention . . .

If you have a good all weather coach you don't have to do that.

It is no secret that I don't have an all weather coach.  Sad
However, during mosquito season, I know who to park beside. . .  Grin

Well placed lightbulbs work well if you have reliable power - which is something I didn't have when it was 11F while going up I75 at 65 - 70 mph Friday night/ Saturday morning.  Shocked

It was nice & comfy inside the suburban, but when you stopped for gas or to 'check the fridge', damn, it was cold!
When I got home Saturday morning just after 8am, I did drain the fresh water tank & the water heater & turn on the heaters & light bulbs. There didn't seem to be any frozen piping as water still flowed out all the faucets, but the water that I drained on the ground did freeze before it made it's way out from under the camper.

It is a factory built camper, so the plumbing was places with minimizing cost taking priority over ease of draining them. From the looks of it, they were using up all the scrap pieces of plastic tubing they had. I've never seen so many fittings in one place!

I pressure checked the water supply yesterday. YEA! no leaks!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

I finally got around to making a water supply adapter for the camper so I can turn the water off at the camper (I'm 100 feet away from the house faucet)  & also have an outside faucet at the camper to share water or wash up if needed.

Now to wash off the mud that splatters on the camper when it rains due to the lack of walls on the bus port.  Wink
