The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

People can still register but the payment information page is missing. I can temporarily email people with that information if needed although I will keep track of registrations in the order received.

I keep bugging Sally to sign us up.  It's like poking a bear with a stick.  Grrrrrrrrrr, don't worry we'll get a site she tells me.  NOT if we don't sign up I say.  

 

So Rich, please include us on your list, even if Sally won't put us on her list.  :indifferent0008:

 

There I feel better now, someone knows we'll be attending.   :usa:

Great I now can start planning for a rally ahead of time. Wife's job maybe getting converted finally. What that mean's is she will get vacations when she wants them not when they want her off. But its a few weeks off still. Don't count us in yet, want be able to lock the dates down till late Nov or early Dec. We have to pick vac by seniority and that starts then. That's about a 30 hr drive for us non stop. Can pencil us as a maybe?

There is a saying here in Texas Takes a day to get out of the state and a hour to get anywhere else. For us it is 800 miles through back country rds very little interstates to get to Colorado. Non that don't take us half the state out of the way. I was thinking of our trip to Cody WY including all the re fuling along the way.

Yay, we're signed up and looking forward to it! I did some quick fly in jobs in Colorado Springs many years ago, and hiked in the Garden of the Gods as well as driving up Pikes Peak. The minute I saw where it was I didn't even consult hubby but just signed us up. It should be great!

I did see your registration come through. Did you have any issues with the website or sign up?

I think it only did the first part of the registration.  It didn't direct me any further and didn't ask for a payment of any kind..... so I guess I'm not finished.  Do I need to re-register again?

Wendy - you are fine. I have your registration form. I had connection issues last night and couldn't get online except with my tablet. I'll be sending out an email to all registrants with additional information. Thanks for letting me know.

 

If anyone else has problems registering for the rally, please post so we can look into it. I think we have most of the bugs worked out at this point. <fingers crossed>

As of today, we have received registrations for 20 of the 55 sites allocated for the National rally. Each site will be confirmed once your $40 deposit has been received and are done on a first come/first served basis. Deposits will be refundable up until June 1, 2015. We should have final discounted site costs this October once the resort sets their rates for 2015 so stay tuned. Additional information will be sent out as soon as we have it.

Its a hard choice to make. head up to Colorado or over to north Arkansas. With what is now happen of partialy closing down two processing mail plants in south texas they have to find jobs for those that are effected. Which impacts my wifes conversion to regular (paid vacations and 40+hr work week) Wont know till time gets closer. Saw that there are 55 slots, in the off chance more want to go can they?

We will try to work with the resort to get more sites allocated to us if needed. Otherwise, I am sure the resort will try to accommodate you if they have other sites available.

 

You can also reserve now and if you find out before June 1, 2015 that you can't make it, your $40 deposit will be refunded.
