Who: Truck Camper owners and enthusiasts
What: An opportunity to visit with fellow truck campers
Where: Smoky Bear Campground between Cosby and Gatlinburg, TN
When: April 13-15, 2018
How: Reserve your site by calling the campground then either post here or send me a PM to say you're coming

There'll be an icebreaker with potluck snacks Friday evening, a rig open house Saturday morning, a potluck supper followed by entertainment Saturday evening, and a farewell breakfast Sunday morning. If you get there early plan on gathering around the fire pit Thursday evening and cooking a few burgers and dogs.

If you've never been to Smoky Bear CG, it's a small family owned and operated facility. The 30A back-in sites are gravel; the 50A pull thru sites are concrete. Be aware that Sites 34, 35, & 36 are a bit on the primitive side and some road noise intrudes on the sites that back up to the highway. But other than that the sites and campground facilities are excellent. The grounds are nicely decorated. The bath house and laundry are spotless. We'll have exclusive use of the clubhouse with its refrigerator, stove, sink, grill, and gathering space (except during the Saturday night entertainment and Sunday breakfast when all campers are welcome). Best of all are our hosts: Klaire, Patrick, and, if we're lucky, Chong. I didn't negotiate a special rate with Smoky Bear but tell them you're attending the SETC Gathering and use your usual AAA, Good Sam, or other discount.

More details will be posted as time goes by. But for now, get on the phone and reserve your site! It's a small campground and will fill up fast.

*** I've been asked about announcing this event elsewhere. I ask that you please DON'T do so. Announcing this just on RV.NET, there were 18 rigs at the first gathering and 24 rigs at the second gathering. Bigger isn't always better which is where the small size of the campground is an advantage [emoticon] It's an open campground so of course inviting a friend or two to come along is fine. Just please no announcements on Facebook, Truck Camper Magazine, etc. I'd rather folks attending be able to "meet" each other here and for me to be able to share what little organization is involved here. ***

Hi Guys & Gals,

Sorry for the delay in welcoming everyone. Been busy with work, home, and the horse rescue. This the time for craft fairs where we raise money to buy hay for the winter so I've been busy with the wine corks. I had enough this year to try some garlands and they came out pretty good if I may say so myself.

Mobile Island - Welcome to the group, Gail. We look forward to meeting you. You won't have too far to travel from the Ozarks. But you'll be driving the long way through Tennessee. Give me a shout by PM if you'll be passing through the Nashville area on the way.

kohldad - Since you've got the closest site to the fire pit, you're in charge of getting the fire started THU night [emoticon]

GulfCoastGypsies - Are you sure you can make that LONG drive down to Smoky Bear? Looking forward to seeing Zack ... and you two ... too [emoticon]

LannyV - Welcome back, you ham [emoticon] You're son is welcome to join us if he's still in the area.

Sango - Glad to see you'll be able to make it again. Be sure to bring some tall Texas tales with you!

Ramp Digger - Whooeee! I can already taste them ramps! Hope the weather is favorable for an early crop.

billyg - That CampLite hasn't grown up yet?

With a couple more I've heard from by PM, that makes 11 of us so far. It's already starting to sound like a good gathering!

Phyllis
