Kyle, looking at the camping guidebook, there seems to be a good many campgrounds scattered about I-85 and I-26 that are not in the mountains..or at the edge of them as is Palmettor CG.  The flatland CGs won't be full for leaf season.  Maybe something is available in another CG?  Wouldn't matter to me at all.   
Most campgrounds will have issues with parking everyone together...and while that would be nice, the lack of such parking arrangements wouldn't be a show stopper for Terri and me. 
Another problem with upscale campgrounds is the dreaded term "bus"...they envision brightly painted hippie skoolies full of rude druggies. 
Good luck with making arrangements!  Found out that T will be off for 11th and 12th of October.  Cool!
Gimmie some good news!  JR

Kyle,
No matter where the bus gathering will be held I am still in for the weekend of OCT -12-14th.  Let us know what for sure, no tent, so what!!!  we can make about 4-6 spaces between a couple of buses only if possible and if the park area where we will park is not too packed for us all to gather if we want, maybe big enough to also cook there between buses and stay private without infringing on the Airstream Rally.  It will be worth what ever we have to do to have the "Kyle SC Fall Gathering" at Palmetto Cove as you will see if you attend.  Kyle, You have time to try to figure out what we can do, we will not need much power as it should be cooler then also.  If your rig is not needing full power then perhaps those that are can get the power hook ups. 

I can dump my poop out here at Greenville Waste Treatment farm, have a tank of water in my S&S for shower etc., a portable 12v battery and small inverter for a outside light if I need it to save the batteries, my refer is ok on Gas, I don't see a problem!!

Again I cannot stress the  beauty you will see at this park for what ever it takes to go there at any time.  Again, if you want it there in October 11-12th, there will be 2 adults, 1 grandaughter, 2 great little female puppies in our S&S, hope to see you all still there.

Lets do it!!  let us know if you will show.

Hey Y'all!

I think we should meet there at the cove that weekend without rally status. We all know how to camp independently, right? We all know how to cook for ourselves, right? Most, if not all can handle a few nights without hookups, right? If we get together under our awnings for a pot luck, COOL! (We should avoid any tents as it may add to their apprehension, once they know us, I'm sure things will improve!)

The worst would be that all of the available spaces are used & some may have to park in the 'overflow area' without hookups. Since there are 2 other rallies happening that weekend (Mom says that last year, they didn't even fill half the park for the 2 rallies - so available spaces shouldn't be a problem anyway), we won't be able to use the dining hall at all & the shelter at night. The shelter is usually common during the day. We will probably be grouped together since the other rallies will be grouped also.

This will be a good time to show what true busnuts really are:
The best of the best!

If they saw me pull in with my bus and how it is shedding its paint I bet it would make for some unhappy Airstreamers Angry. I might easily dash any future rallies there single-handedly Cry.  I think Airstream was smart not to paint their trailers.

If, for some strange reason, the campground shouldn't have enough space for those of us who show up.....
we might consider dropping by Leroy's place.  Think of all the fuel is would save him. Cheesy

Hehehehe...now I didn't really want to start anything....much.....

You might want to make sure your rig can go off road, the mile long drive can challenge a highway bus.  Shocked


But the scenery is awesome!  Grin
