Apparently, they don't have the whole campground open this time of year. Who knew it could be so busy this time of year! Well, I guess I will have to plan better next time.... But at least there will be 2 of us.

This tells me there is interest in such an event. Perhaps we can pick a date farther in advance like other "real" meetups do.

I would love to see a NorCal rally. Maybe plan one for the fall (late September or October) so we all have time to get it into our schedules? We are looking forward to it!

There seems to be some interest in a rally. I'm interested in what you would prefer for a rally. Please copy these questions and paste your answers and we will see if we have consensus how to proceed:
1) I would like a rally in October in Nor Cal.
2) I would attend a rally October 20-23.
3) I would attend but would prefer a different date:
4) I would prefer the rally at a state or regional park (no hookups but a park setting)
5) I would prefer the rally at a private park (hookups but parking close together)
6) I have a specific suggestion for a place:
7) I would prefer a gathering with little organization (maybe a potluck)
8) I would prefer more activities
9) I would help organize the rally including activities

Thanks for initiating this!

1) I would like a rally in October in Nor Cal. Yes!
2) I would attend a rally October 20-23. Yes!
3) I would attend but would prefer a different date: Probably any date late September or in October would be good.
4) I would prefer the rally at a state or regional park (no hookups but a park setting). We prefer a beautiful campground over the convenience of hookups.
5) I would prefer the rally at a private park (hookups but parking close together). Would like to have hookups but if we had to choose, would prefer better campsites.
6) I have a specific suggestion for a place: Within a 2, maybe 3 hour drive of the Bay area/Sacramento would be ideal.
7) I would prefer a gathering with little organization (maybe a potluck).
8) I would prefer more activities. A potluck and maybe a hike? I'm ok either way on #7 an #8.
9) I would help organize the rally including activities. Sure!

Jill, not to horn in on this discussion but I see you're interested in a NorCAL rally. These are a couple I already know about:

Sept. 15-19, 2016 in Quincy, CA at the Pioneer RV Park
Oct 20-24, 2016 at Lake Casitas

Donna,
Thanks for pointing these out. It's always good to have options.
I cannot attend the Quincy rally this year due to a date conflict.
Lake Casitas is actually in southern CA near Ventura.

Here are my selections:
1) I would like a rally in October in Nor Cal. YES

2) I would attend a rally October 20-23. YES

3) I would attend but would prefer a different date: N/A

4) I would prefer the rally at a state or regional park (no hookups but a park setting) I PREFER A PARK AND ONE THAT IS READILY ACCESSIBLE FOR TRAILERS.

5) I would prefer the rally at a private park (hookups but parking close together) HOOKUPS ARE NICE BUT CA STATE AND REGIONAL PARKS IN NORCAL DON'T HAVE HOOKUPS, AT LEAST NOT THOSE ON THE COAST. AT LEAST, I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY YET. I WISH WE HAD OREGON STATE PARKS CLOSER TO US!

6) I have a specific suggestion for a place: WE ARE CAMPING IN BODEGA DUNES AND WILL CHECK OUT OTHER NEARBY PARKS. WE HAVEN'T FOUND A PRIVATE PARK WE WOULD RECOMMEND BUT WE HAVEN'T SEEN MANY YET OTHER THAN THE RUSSIAN RIVER AREA.

7) I would prefer a gathering with little organization (maybe a potluck) YES

8) I would prefer more activities I AGREE WITH A HIKE, OUR USUAL ACTIVITY AT A PARK

9) I would help organize the rally including activities DUH, OBVIOUSLY.

Thanks Donna! We just got back (literally 1 hour ago) from the Lake Casitas area but Quincy is a great spot that we would love to visit again. I will check that out!
