Are you guys interested in getting together for a vintage trailer weekend? I don't know what in my newbie-upstart brain thinks I can pull this off, but if there's enough interest (on this and other vintage forums I'll find) I'll try real hard!
Hurricane, UT has 3 fishing lakes and sits 20mi from Zion National Park. The best for families and camping is SAND HOLLOW RESERVOIR. It is 40mi's into UT from NV/AZ and sits in the SW corner of the state. Mesquite, NV is 60min's to the South (casinos!). Paved road to the RV parks.
May 13-15 is the weekend after Mother's Day. It should be warm enough; days in the 80's and nights in the 50-60's. What do you think?
Here is a link to the lake campground. It offers every amenity we would look for and sits near at least 4 RV supply places. Food/Gas/Walmart are all nearby. Views are amazing..click on the link to see. Bring your boats.
What an awesome looking place to camp. Wish we were on your side of the country.
My wife Carla and I have been hosting gatherings since 2004 and have made some great friends because of it. Some of our gathering will be as small as 4 campers and others can be as large as 54+ campers. One thing in common with everyone who attends, everyone loves to camp and the fellowship of others. Granted, some folks aren't that much into group camping....10 plus campers....but it is some of the best times we have ever had. We travel up and down the east coast and are planning to start heading west and maybe pick up a few gatherings along the way. Just have to get the Starflyte completed.
On Friday night, we try to gather at someones site a have a little Meet & Greet and then we have a Saturday Night Pot Luck Supper, which gives everyone a chance to break bread together. Makes it a bit more personable.
Once you get the first or second gathering under your belt, it becomes very easy to host a gathering. We like to ask attendees where they would like to go or what their favorite campgrounds are. We also like to host gatherings near historical landmarks or "tourist trap" areas. This gives people a chance to site see in an area that they might not have ever been to before.
It can be a lot of hard work, but well worth the time. Ross
