First Time!

Heading to the Maryhill Egg rally tomorrow for the first overnight of our trailer since we picked it up in late March. It is not that far away and we will only be away for 48 hours. My packing is minimal because 1) I will be gone a short time and 2) I am a backpacker and am used to making due with whatever I have on hand.

I mentioned I am a backpacker, and I have always been a tent camper as well. I have never had HEAT or AC while camping. I have never had a bathroom of my own while camping. I have never had running water with a dedicated sink while camping. Very excited to experience these luxuries!

You mean travel over 3,000 miles one-way to attend a 4-day rally when there are rallies closer to home in the PNW? Donít know about the OP but I, for one, wouldnít even consider it unless there were other things I wanted to do/see that far away from home. The fuel alone for a round trip from Washington (State) to New Hampshire would exceed $1,000 at todayís prices, based on 15 mpg and 6,000 miles round trip. That would be a major commitment. But YMMV.

MB, enjoy your trip and your new trailer!

That would be a fair pull for sure. We have done the 5,000 mile round trip to Osoyoos several times and the shorty rally trips at 2,000 to 2,500 miles numerous times. In every instance we came back with great memories, satisfaction of seeing and camping with friends and family, making new friends and seeing dozens and dozens of attractions along the way. As my old friend said to me about car racing once, “it costs money to go racing”. Priorities, likes and dislikes are different for all of us and who knows what tomorrow may bring. Remember 2020? Pretty much a rainout. Keep dreaming, keep camping and have fun.

Hi Dave, Yes, Iíve done Osoyoos from Florida 3 times since 2015. But that is a special ownerís appreciation rally (or was special when Reace or Tammy were involved). No offense intended to Gerry or the attendees, but to me the Spring Fling in NE is just a run of the mill rally of which there are many. And I see new things and make new friends on every trip whether I attend a rally or not. I lived half of my life in New England, most of that time in NH, and May weather there is a bit iffy for me. There is a reason I relocated to Florida. Actually, I will be in NH in late June, visiting family and old friends. But it is doubtful that any white precipitation will fall or still be on the ground by then.
