We got in Saturday night around 5 or 6 last year, and I'd say about 2/3 of the spaces were already filled. Most of row where we were at was already done.

Still hoping I get to go this year, but so far, it's looking like the only way that's gonna happen is if I leave the DW at home and it's just me and the kids.

asquared - If you are traveling on the Indiana Turnpike, they have several Rest Areas with RV Hookups or you can park with the Trucks. These parking areas are very big. I have always stayed in one on my way to the Rally.

You are right! It is still a busy weekend!

And to think, they are all standing outside my Sierra! This must have been taken during beer tasting! Not sure what Herk was looking at. lol

As some earlier posts mentioned the meeting of new people and making new friends, I've met some good friends (those in the picture and others that are missing) and we talk/text almost daily since 2013! We are meeting again in Nashville (along with 45+ more new friends!). And we will pick up right where we left off last year at Goshen!

We were all celebrating with Ms Amy about Turbs having finally passed out!

Funny you should say that Rennie! Anne-Marie and I went to the Chattanooga RV show this weekend and wound up hanging out with Jay (FR Cardinal rep) talking to a lot of potential buyers. I made that exact comment to a prospective buyer. Got to talking about FROG, the Goshen Rally, FROG Rallies all over the USA and FR's commitment to the owner & offering free repairs to FR owners at the rally.

Anne-Marie nudged me & I thought she wanted me to hush but what she wanted to see is I had attracted a crowd of about 8 couples

Wound up spending 20 more min getting to know some soon to be Forest River owners. Maybe I need to apply to FR for a job

BTW Rennie - if you are looking to upgrade, take a look at the 2016 Cardinal 3825FL -- THAT is a upgrade in anyone's book. It was the best looking rig at the show!

More info about the Rally

OK, just got off the phone and was reminded about something else that became a problem last year (Biggest rally till THAT date).

The areas that have the "ground boxes" (which will be nearly all sites except about 200 FHU sites) have 2 shared 30 amp sockets and you WILL need 30 to 50 amp dogbones if you have a 50 amp service plug. BE PREPARED.

The ground boxes are spaced 13 feet apart and if you park with the box in the EXACT center of your rear bumper EVERYONE will be able to open their awning fully.

HOWEVER, if you have an awning on your slide out, BE AWARE that you may not be able to get full extension on THAT slide-out awning. Be a pal, and wait till the site next to you has a camper in it to extend your awning fully. I would hate to have it torn off your camper by an inexperienced backer! This is especially important if you plan on leaving your site with the awning out!

Electrical usage.

This is a FAIRGROUND!

The ground box runs are LONG; but should provide plenty of power if campers are courteous about power usage. Last year is was HOT and air conditioners were running full blast. The 30 amp runs can handle that, BUT if everyone uses electric to run their water heaters and fridge in addition to the AC you will be screwing the folks at the end of the run.

They had a few issues with low voltage at the end of the runs. Folks at the beginning of the run had good voltage; folks at the end had their AC's bogging down (or EMS kicking off). Report any problems so they can get them fixed. Using the small amount of propane for your water heater and fridge is not too much to ask so that everyone can be comfortable.

Water pressure is AWESOME. Make sure you bring a pressure regulator.
More to come as I remember stuff.
Herk
