Norm and Ginny, My in-laws went up through Newfoundland and surrounding areas in Canada and say that it was one of the most beautiful, ralaxing vacations they've ever had. My retirement will need to include a trip like that!

You may know. Nfld is my favorite spot in NAmerica. This will be our 5th trip. We have driven most of Nflds roads except for the region south of St Johns. We definitely have driven all of Labrador's.

The ride thru the rest of the Atlantic provinces is also great. Fortunately you hit them all except PEI on the way.

Another nice part of the trip is costal ME, not quite as quiet as Nfld but nearly so.


There is plenty of wonder out there.

Hi: honda03842... P.E.I. is Canada's Garden Province. The Confederation Bridge is toll free going over but coming back it's south of 50 bucks. It's worth every penny even though the Fed's just did away with them!!! Can't put in my 2 cents worth any more either.
We've never been to NFLD so you're ahead of us there.

Alf,

We went to the fiberglss rally in PEI two years ago and paid that $50 toll on the way out. It seems trivial to the cost of getting to Newfoundland on the Ferry.

PEI is another good place for ssure.

Two Trips for sure:

July 13-20 Yellowstone NP. A group starting is Las Vegas, picking up Scamps while heading north.

Oct 31-Nov 4 - Lake Casitas, CA

May take other trips as they pop up.

Inquiring minds want to know...how come there are so many get togethers in WA and OR as compared to other regions/state? I am jealous.

Because other than the big Oregon Gathering, they're strictly Not Organized Gatherings. They start with someone picking a place and date, then providing information on all the molded forums. NOT by trying to build consenus... which you can never get anyway. Someone just needs to start it! We've found you don't always need to go to the same place(s), but should go at the same time(s) every year. That way, folks can plan ahead.

They start small then grow. I don't organize two a year... and they're a blast!

Thanks for the insite of the gatherings Donna. I thought the NW had something going the rest of the states didn't know about. Turns out it was just me!
If I ever retire, I'll try to get some going down here in the spring and/or fall.

Lots of Michigan action here. With our governor, we can use all the tourist dollars we can get. John, I live a half hour away from the Tulip Festival and it is a must see for flower festival goers. We have always stayed at the Dutch Treat, which is convenient, but a ways out of town. Also, can't think of a better out of doors volunteer gig, than protecting the sturgeon. In the summer, go down river, because it is one of the best trips our State has to offer.

Pam, I have a daughter in Milford, and have camped in almost all of the locations you have mentioned. Holly was one of the 8-10 lovers lanes of my youth. What can I say, I was "active." There is a Renaissance Festival there that gets good reviews.

We are headed to Charleston for spring break and hope to do some BBQ rib analysis. Shall let ya'll know the results.

That's how Algonac Glassic here in Michigan started, Donna. John Warren is the founder and Scamp Master of this NOG .
We had twenty-something rigs in the park last year (our first year!), and who knows how many for 2013. It started with John announcing where and when he was camping and it just took off from there. Too bad you live so far away, D, we'd love to have you join us.

Heading down the "Great River Road" starting June 8th in Minnesota and driving as much of it as we can in 12 days. Very excited about it as it has been something I have wanted to do since I was a teenager, although I always imagined doing it on a raft like ole' Huck Finn this will be a close second. My second big trip with my Cloud.

I'm finishing up two months in Florida, two more weeks than time to head home. I've been to a few state parks on the west coast and keys, ten days at Fort DeSoto, a week in Miami and my last two in Titusville, oh plus a week at Flamingo in the Everglades. Not bad for my first trip! I'm looking to several weekend trips to the shore and a week in July, not sure yet where that will be.
