Suggestions for 2016 Rallies/Events/Get-togethers to attend!

I would like to hear what rallies, etc. those of you really enjoy. I sometimes find it difficult to find the dates and details of upcoming events, so thought I would take the easy way out and ask for suggestions and information. People have suggested the Bluebonnet Rally, Green Eggs and Ham and others - so I would like to plan on attending some of these during the year.

I also might be able to swing an extended trip of 4-6 weeks in late summer or early fall. Travel "out west" or the northeast are possiblitlies, so any suggestions of itinerary, events, places not to miss would also be appreciated. (Trying to do some "retirement" trips the next few years even though I am not retired yet ... but have a large amount of vacation time accumulated!)

Home base for me is NC and I enjoyed meeting a few people at the Townsend, TN and Cherokee NC rallies this year! I have found I just need to carry a notebook around for the information available at these rallies!

Also, email is coosa1995@gmail.com if that works better for anyone. Thank you in advance for any suggestions! ::

Ginny says life is about people.

Every rally we've been to the people have been wonderful. Though we haven't been to al the rallies, all the rallies we've been to have been fun, with interesting and friendly people.

How about posting a calendar of rallies somewhere so we can all see what's happening and plan... is it possible on this site?

A calendar is a great idea

Maps & Rallies is nice to see things geographically, but being able to see things by a time line is also extremely helpful for planning.

New this year was the outer banks rally OBX near Cape Hatteras. October 2016 is scheduled. Land Between the Lakes, TN is in October too. Lancaster, PA is a small rally but interesting. There is generally a small informal get-together in the Fall in Virginia near the Blue Ridge Parkway.

There's also the rallies calendar. But it's up to the rally organizers to put the information into the calendar: Fiberglass RV - Calendar

Just looked and there isn't a thing listed in the 2016 calendar, at least not through July. I know there are rallys in Feb, and May.

I've been trying to find one to attend since last summer, and it seems that the "regulars" fill up all the reservations immediately. By the time I heard of any of them, there were no sites left. I agree, a working calendar would be an asset. The map does help, but again, most sites are full within a few days of being available for reservations, at least that has been my experience with the rallys that may have worked for me.

You keep hearing the advice to attend a rally to check out what trailers are available, but it really isn't that easy, unless you plan to hotel it or tent camp.

Kinda like finding a trailer, you gotta be 100% on your toes, and jump the moment you hear of one, or you will miss out. Guess it's good practice.
