I figure I should have about 10,000 more miles on my Georgetown by fall.

Have fun and say hi to all.

Iggy, if you get to Galveston, try to stop by The Bishop's Palace. My Grandfather's older brother, Bishop Christopher E. Byrne, was the Bishop of Galveston from 1918 until his death in 1950.

The home pre-dates its ownership by the Diocese of Galveston (now headquartered in Houston) almost forty years, and was one of very few to survive the 1900 hurricane. It sheltered over 250 survivors in the following months. The fact this it has a steel framework with two-foot thick brick walls both inside and outside of the framework had a lot to do with its survival.

Cindy and I got to visit some of the "off-limits" areas, including the top of the turret and the area behind the chapel altar (the room to the left of the second floor balcony) when we visited there about ten years ago.

Thanks Bob for the information. Never been on the east coast of Texas>
WE will be meeting friends there who spend much of the summer on the coast.

California Rally Services?

During the 'California Here We Come Rally' this year, would anyone be interested in having a Mobile RV Weighing Service?
We have the opportunity to get your RV and Tow Vehicle or coach weighed and let you know if you are out of balance or overweight by RVWeigh.com.
Please let me know if you are interested so we can make the arrangements for them to visit us during the rally.

We'll do it. I've been meaning to get over to the scales, but something always comes up. Do you have any idea how much they will charge?

There may be more people interested, depending on the cost of these weighing services. I am in this group. Interested if not to costly.

I noticed that Waldog asked about seminars, including boondocking. If there is any further interest in seminars, specifically boondockiWng, I would like to propose that we hold an informal discussion session on boondocking and other off the grid topics. Our favorite outings are to locations without any hookups. Any interest or thoughts?

Sounds like a great idea. Count me in! However, as a newbie, I'll be listening.

Us too. As a former backpacker turned 5er, I love going to places less traveled. Just not sure what our monster needs to do it right.

Lightbulb Boondocking Seminar/Weigh-In Service

Usually during our 'Happy Hour' sessions in the club room, FROGs are encouraged to swap tips and techniques about all sorts of things, and 'Boondocking is one of the things that always comes up.
Any FROG with experience is encouraged to feel free to speak about where and what to do while off the grid camping.

Any of our attendees interested in getting their rig weighed and balanced should email Steve Kass directly at Steve@RVWeigh.com to set up your appointment during the California Rally. His website is RV WEIGH - Mobile Weigh Station, and he says it takes about 1 hour for a 5er.

See you all soon!

Questions

Has the cut-off date passed?
For those of us in MH's without a toad, how limiting would the rally be? Can we break camp and find parking for our MH at the activity?
We still aren't sure yet if we can make it. It would be our first!

The cutoff is today, May 9, but let me know.
Not having a toad isn't usually a problem, there is always someone with an extra seat for getting around. Most of the activities are in the park and I'm sure someone would be willing to give you a lift to the factory tour.

Today, May 9 is registration cut-off for the California Here We Come Rally so Sweet Baby Jane's will have time to order enough for our Saturday night dinner.
If you are still interested attending please make your reservations and email gerryreviea@yahoo.com your information.
We've eclipsed last years attendance, so there will be plenty of new stories around the campfires.
Hope to see you all soon

Just found out my wife told our son and daughter-in-law that we will watch their 2 dogs over Memorial Day weekend. Have to take a rain check, darn! Our other plans for the weekend got cancelled.

VERY Loose Schedule

There isn't really a FROG calendar.
The planned functions are:

Thursday, 4pm "Meet'N'Greet" Happy Hour in the clubhouse.
Friday, Factory tour. Time to be determined because there may be 2 tours. 4pm Happy Hour in the clubhouse. 5:30 Potluck Dinner bring something to feed 6-8.
Saturday, 4pm Happy Hour, 5:30 BBQ Dinner by Sweet Baby Jane's, entertainment and raffle.
Sunday, 4pm Happy Hour - Snacks provided by "Cable Grip"
Monday, Memorial Day 4pm Happy Hour
Tuesday, Pack-out.

Some FROG's are coming early enough on Thursday to go to Palm Springs for their Street Fair on Palm Canyon Ave from 6-10pm.

There is plenty to do in the area with all the wineries in Temecula, an Antique Auto Museum, Train Museum, Indoor Skydiving at Perris Valley Airport, antique shopping, Cabazon Outlet Mall, Old Towns in Temecula and the Aritsans of Idylwild.

There are rumors of 'Bean Bag" baseball, Washers and "Ladder Golf" tournaments. Get a group together.

Plenty of swimming pools, hot tubs, Volly Ball and Pickle Ball Courts.

You shouldn't be bored.

Gerry & Linda
