  1. How To Walk-In Register: The online registration is now closed as we prepare and pack for the rally. If you still want to join us on October 11th, there is a walk-in registration fee of $25 (cash only). Please register with the rally at the Soundside conference center first, beginning at 1:30pm. You'll need to present your rally badge at the Camp Hatteras office check-in for the rally rate and site assignment. Have inquiries or changes? Email RV Compass and we’ll be happy to sort it out.
  2. One More Day to Register! That’s right, Eggshells 2019 is the most educational EVER and we’re super excited. We Dare You to take on the challenges. The stickers are in (and look great), the learning stations are ready and we just finished building the “prop” art. The food truck is waiting, fish are hungry for the bait, saltwater wants you to splash it, we have a free campsite winner and pirates are ready to party! Registered participants are getting the last planned email this evening, filled with links including an updated Rally Schedule, campground news, an OBX Trivia Map, the Anchor Grill food truck menu (that is currently open to special requests) and the official OBX Bucket List of great things to do. If you haven’t registered yet, do so in the next 24 hours so we’ll have enough clam chowder for y’all to taste! To sign up, go to: http://www.rvcompass.com/OBXrally/reserve.html
  3. Thanks John, Yes, the Outer Banks is one of the most dynamic places on earth and always shifting. Shifting like a travel trailer! If you can't make it out for a rally, it might be a location to consider for your bucket list.

  5. David, You and Susan embraced this rally and described it better than I could ever have done. Thank you for sharing your great experience in words AND pictures! https://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/inyan-2019-a-south-dakota-rally/page/2/#post-197619 http://davidstravels.net/2019/09/15/inyan-trailer-rally-in-south-dakota/
  6. New Program Added! After your morning coffee, stick around Sunday at 8:30am for Beachcombing Biology: the stories your beach finds tell, featuring all types of beachcombing treasures such as shells, egg cases, UFOs (unidentified found objects), bones, etc. There will be interactive board games to play on (Beach Bingo and Shell Bingo) – matching the item with its correct common name. This program is presented by Terri Kirby-Hathaway, Marine Educational Specialist with NC Sea Grant, and contributing author of North Carolina’s Amazing Coast. In addition, she has some door prizes for correct answers to her trivia questions. Terri will have copies for her book for purchase, North Carolina’s Amazing Coast: Natural Wonders from Alligators to Zoeas, and she’ll be happy to autograph any of those that are purchased. We'll send registered participants an updated schedule Oct. 1st. (We're currently working on another rally treat for you...)

  8. Hey SeaDawg, WOW! Oliver posts HUGE images. Sorry to hear you don't have access to the posts. I thought it was public. I'll post the most informative screenshot thus far, but I'm sure the chatter will continue. It was like kicking an ant mound. Essentially, it sounds as if people who still want to gather at that time of of the year are choosing between 1 of three Alabama COE sites that hosted GE&H throughout the years, without any official leadership. I'll eventually update the rally's Website, but I have the OBX rally as my focus right now, and I need to give GE&H some time to regroup as it may.
  9. RV Compass no longer managing GE&H RV Compass was set to release a reservation form for Green Eggs and Ham next week when recreation.gov shuts the Pickensville campground's site down for the winter. The system was set up to have individual sites assigned for the rally. We were initially informed that Pickensville wouldn't have their reservation system open for next year right now, but apparently they do and this has proven to be a SNAFU for us, as some individuals jumped the gun. Some people have bypassed instructions for reservations and already taken the prime sites near the event pavilion. These sites were going to first be offered to the event leads, because they're the volunteers who need to be close to the pavilion for their supplies and managing their events. RV Compass is no longer managing the 2020 Green Eggs and Ham due to the current lack of control for sites, and some people’s inability to wait for a collaborative registration system. Please refer to www.casitaforum.com as far as how the rally will be directed from here.
  10. We Dare You I write this to y’all as Dorian dumps a bucket of water on us and sends puffs our way… It’s not our first hurricane Rodeo. In fact, this year we’ve taken on the rally theme, “We Dare You”. Camp Hatteras is located in Dare County, NC. Named after Virginia Dare, the first English child born in a New World overseas. The Outer Banks folks are pros and everyone needs to take "recovery" lessons from them. Your concerns are recognized, however, I have the confidence in our camp to pull it off. Only if another hurricane is imminent on our rally weekend (like Matthew), Camp Hatteras will make it happen. I'm currently returning from the SD rally, Inyan, sitting in a McDonalds parking lot for the night (and thank you McD for free, super strong wi-fi) just 100 miles out of Wilmington, NC. The wind gives just a gentle rocking in the trailer, and I know where I'm going for a fast breakfast and coffee in the morning. So far, all roads are passable. The best part about all this pelting rain is the plethora of dead insects and birds stuck to my car and trailer from the long road trip, which are naturally getting pressure-washed away. Makes the destination wash down SO much easier! I know that our OBX camp will be ready for us as they have multiple years in the past. That's why we're the salty adventurers who Dare… So join us salty, sandy adventurers. “We Dare You!”
  11. Exciting News! For those of you who are arriving at least a day early for Inyan, you’ll be here for a major festival just a few miles up the road from the campground. It’s the annual Fall River Hot Air Balloon Festival. The aerial show of balloons, gliders, skydivers will be at the nearby airport, and a full weekend of fun activities are planned in downtown Hot Springs! Learn more about the event: https://www.fallriverballoonfest.com/ Get the full event schedule here: https://www.fallriverballoonfest.com/schedule More about the town of Hot Springs: http://www.hotsprings-sd.com/ I’ll be on the road starting Wednesday, August 14<sup>th</sup>, so Internet access will be infrequent at best. I’ll see Inyan attendees soon and will be back online around the first week of September.
  12. Learn all about this 10-Year Anniversary Rally at: http://www.rvcompass.com/GEHrally/ Registration Update In Mid-September, we’re planning to open registration for a milestone rally, the 10-year anniversary of Green Eggs and Ham! Taking place in a new Alabama campground location From March 11-15, 2020, we’re prepping for the largest gathering ever. Spend a week next March to get your green on with other leprechauns in the woods along an active Alabama waterfront, the Aliceville Lake/Tombigbee River in the Pickensville COE Campground. Initially a Casita/molded fiberglass trailer gathering, Green Eggs and Ham has grown to be one of the largest annual southeast rallies that welcomes all Egg brands…as well as other campers. Just bring your green! (and a few Dr. Seuss books if you’d like). We found a posted by a tent camper, Frazier Douglass, who stayed at the Pickensville Campground. If you haven't been to this campground yet, the video gives you an idea of the campground setting and of the barge and vessel activity along the Tombigbee River.
  13. Only for the Salty Adventurers 2019 is shaping to be the best educational event yet. Set in one of the most dynamic geologic locations on Earth, this strip of ever-shifting sandy land will make you appreciate the planet we occupy. Carry your trailer wheels to a place that we can experience an ever-changing environment and the salty souls who inhabit it. To top off the video posted on the rally's site: Ribbon of Sand - North Carolina's Outer Banks, we also encourage you to watch the YouTube video that presents the new Bonner Bridge, which is a vital part to safe navigation for NC. The Oregon Inlet remains one of the most dangerous passages for any vessel anywhere on the East Coast and unless you’re bringing your camper via ferry system, you’ll be travelling over the new Bonner Bridge.
  14. Hi mokid, We certainly don't get the numbers as a titled Oliver rally, but we do get many attendees and the Oliver owners at the last event were inundated with showing requests. I'd recommend to decide beforehand if you want to "show", and if so, make appointment times so you can also enjoy personal time.
  15. Pineknot Rocks! It's such an eclectic, funky place with so much history, The Roost featured a follow-up rally digest of the event in an article last year. The Roost - December 2018 Events Tons of fiberglass trailers and fun. The more you explore the property, the more you discover and dig it.
