Green Eggs and Ham VIII - Mar 14-18, 2018

The 2018 rally of Green Eggs and Ham VIII will be held at Gunter Hill, Corps of Engineer (COE) Campground on the outskirts of Montgomery, Alabama on Wednesday, March 14th through Sunday March 18th. There will be a lot of green to be seen in Gunter Hill on St Patrickís Day.

The rally has a new Website that should give you all the information youíll need to know. Beginning September 8, 2017, the Website will also offer online registration and rig fee payment through PayPal. Please sign up ASAP after open registration so all the Event Masters have a fairly accurate head count for their preparations.

Itís time to make your reservations for Green Eggs and Ham! Sites are getting reserved fast. To get in on the fun, go to Green Eggs and Ham - Alabama Fiberglass Travel Trailer Rally

If you have any questions, please allow at least a few days response time. Iím wandering the Hershey RV show this week in a labyrinth of RVs, and staying in a fish camp without Internet.

I checked the website and it says we cannot reserve a campsite until Friday Sept 15th. And to do the next part requires the site number we cannot get until Friday . So what's the trick to do it earlier?

It based on your arrival date. We are arriving two days before the start of the Rally on March 12 so we were able to book our site for 7 days. We are booked in site 30 near the water.

Jon, We'll be right beside you in site 46 with our 21', also a 2017 model. We have reservations for the 12th-18th, but depending on my wife's schedule, we might not pull in until the 13th. This is our 4th year at GE&H, and I think it's our 3rd year in site 46 (first two with our EggCamper, which we still have, and now our 2nd year with the Escape). Using our then $10 National Park/Federal Lands Senior Lifetime Pass (50% discount), it's only $13/day for full hook-up! We save more than enough in one night at Gunter Hill to pay for the whole lifetime pass. Can't beat that with a lodge pole pine! Oh, and my wife and I both love blueberry anything!

Karen/Ken, Just a follow-up to what Mike said. You can start reserving sites 6 months ahead of the date you plan to arrive, and then stay as many nights as you can fit in. Some "old timers" arrive several days in advance of the official start just to relax and enjoy the campground and each other's company. They will start a communal morning coffee pot going and an evening camp fire just to get the ball rolling for everyone else when they arrive. So, for example, if you wanted to arrive a few days early on March 11th, you could start reserving a site as early as September 11th (I believe after 10 am EDT that day). Thursday is always the "official" start day of the rally, and since that's March 15th of 2018, then 6 months prior is September 15th this year. I think that's right, anyway. One pre-rally activity that has pretty much become an official event for those arriving early is a group lunch at a really good Cajun restaurant in downtown old town Prattville called "Uncle Mick's" (about 15-20 minutes from the campground). It's a "they serve, one pass through" buffet, and the seating is limited, so someone will organize it and make reservations for the first 20 or so that contact them. But you can always just go on your own some other time, if you like. I've attached a window schedule from last year's GE&H Rally (pdf file) just to give you a general overview of the whole rally. Be sure to note any schedule changes on the 2018 website. Dale
