THOR #1589
Sunshine Thor 2019 Fall Rally

Our history lessons taught us that Ponce de Leon went there searching for the fountain of youth, and it claims to be the oldest city in the US. Relive that youth quest with our Sunshine Thor Rally in historic St Augustine! This will be our 7th semi-annual gathering!

Dates are Wednesday, October 2nd to Sunday, October 6th, four nights. The location will be Compass RV Resort, 1505 State Rd 207, not too far from the old town center. We’re starting earlier in the week so we can see the sites and have plenty of group time over the weekend. We realize some will want to arrive on Friday, and some will arrive earlier and/or stay later.

Our rally rate is $58.50/night and you can extend that rate for a couple of days before, after or both. The park has a 10/9.5/10 Good Sam rating. For reservations, call the park at (904) 824-3574 and ask for Barbara. Others can take your information and deposit, but Barbara is our coordinator.

We booked site 16, and Barbara has placed us near the clubhouse, pool and front entrance. First come, first served for reservations. If you wait until August to make your reservation, you risk being placed farther away from the group. They take a deposit equal to the first night, then balance at check in. Please post or PM me that you are in!

There is a great trolley system in St Augustine, and a shuttle will take you from the campground office to the trolley starting point in the morning and bring you back in the afternoon! Discounted passes available at the campground, are good for 3 days. Best of all, you avoid the hassle and expense of parking.

Details on the Friday evening potluck and Saturday’s agenda will follow later. Like our previous rallies, there is no entertainment or meals provided, but there are no rally fees, either. Come and find out if that “Fountain of Youth” thing is real or just a cruel hoax!

We have camped at Compass RV Resort twice...Nice park....The front part of the Park is the older part with gravel pads but still decent...The back part is New with Very nice brick pads...... There is also a Dollar General store right in front of the campground if you find you forgot something.....

This is the kind of park that gives PassportAmerica a black eye. It's only valid there for August and September, but not the Labor Day holiday weekend.

One small correction: all reserved folks will get a call for the balance a week before the event.

No, your PA won't work there at that time. Good Sam will, but our rally rate is lower. Personally, PA has never worked for where and when we tried to use it.

The rate we are getting is a bargain so close to St Augustine and the coast. The KOA there was higher and has no clubhouse.

I replaced my couch in my Vegas 24.1 with a double recliner. If anyone attending would like these 2 back cushions, let me know and I'll bring to the Rally. I tossed out the rest of the couch. If no one wants them, I'll toss these also.

The shuttle takes you from the campground to the old jail where you catch the trolley to see the sights around town.. I believe there is 21 stops on the trolley where you can hop off and on all day long....make sure to make your way back to the jail to get the shuttle back to the campground...You sign up for the shuttle the day before going into town...If I remember correctly the last shuttle back to the campground is 6PM??????
