I refer to it as more of an "eat & greet" Non-Rally.
Dinner Friday & Saturday night & Breakfast on Saturday are about the only things planned. Everything else is spur of the moment.
Some bring their motorcycles to enjoy the local mountain curvy roads. 
Some bring their musical instruments & enjoy playing together.
Some enjoy the local attractions.

I enjoy catching up with old friends & making new ones!

It is rare that the park fills up, but they now take reservations, - just tell them you are with the Bus Nuts!

No rally fee, just pay the campground fee & contribute to the rally the best way you can - helping prepare meals, bringing side dishes, putting something in the donation pot at the meals, etc.

If you have something you want to sell, put it in front of your bus & see if you can help someone out.

My first and only bus rally was a Kyle Non-Rally at Palmetto Cove.  Highlight of my bus career.  Snowed on the way down, we followed Google Maps to find the camp ground, came in a back way that had the front corner of the bus hitting trees on the outside of the corner and the little towed car mowing down grass in the ditch on the inside of the same corner.  Had tornado warnings on Sunday that had us scampering for asphalt to park on rather than grass (I'd had bad experiences with grass, lots of rain, and buses).  Spent a lot time at 25 mph on I 26, in second gear.  Lots of fun, I hope to be back before I toss this mortal coil.

I remember that visit, y'all traveled the greatest distance. I so wish I could take longer trips. . . . .

I'll bet that engine upgrade would improve those  speeds up hill on I-26 !   Grin

I'm hoping I can get the parts to fix my Stone Bennett shifter - the bottom air cylinder is full of rust.
I'd rather fix it right than band aide it & have to deal with it again, soon.

Brent, It looks like it is a 2 hour ride from The Cove to Bryson City.

Hope to see you there, if not, at least you got to ride a TRAIN !

Kyle   Picked up Huggy Friday morning about 11,30 am Kentucky time.

Arrived home about 9.30 pm Lenoir time.

Hy 58 across Vir. from Middlesburo Ky to Bristol is just a little bit crooked.

Used more fuel from Corbin Ky than I did on the rest of the trip.

Hope mama is ready to try another trip by Friday.

Who else is going to Kyles non rally.  Might be brave and see if HUGGY can get that far without breaking again.

Delmas Little is already there with a few others.  Grin

I'm sure Huggy would like a nice little vacation in God's country.
