Rally Year (sorta)

After two and a half years full-timing we have never been to a big RV Rally. We had plans for the 2010 Escapade in Elkhart Indiana but recovery from surgery delayed our trip. All the other time our travels just did not put us close enough to a rally and we always had something going on that interfered with our getting close enough.

This year was going to be different. The Good Sam Rally was in Phoenix last week and we went on a day pass to check it out. Then there is the Carriage Travel Club's Texas National in April in Amarillo Texas which is directly on our path from the Phoenix area to the Kansas City area. Finally, this years Escapade is in September in Sedalia Missouri which we thought about attending as we get back to the Kansas City area in the fall after our summer along the North Shore of Lake Superior.

With the exception of the already attended Good Sam Rally we are afraid this year might be a bust again rally wise. As we posted earlier the forecast for an unusually stormy spring has caused us to change our travel plans leaving the Phoenix area. We are bypassing tornado alley which has caused us to cancel out of the Carriage Club Texas National and our plans to spend a month in the Kansas City area in the spring. With so little time in the Kansas City area this fall we are probably not going to the Escapade either except for maybe a day trip.

Oh well there is always next year,

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. We have signed up for the Sedalia rally since it so close to KC and we may not get to another one anytime soon.

    Let us know if your going to be there so we can hook up.

  2. We enjoy going to rallies once in awhile. It does seem that after a a number of them, they start to to all seem the same.

  3. I agree with Chuck and Anneke. They all seem to be the same. We actually camped at the Good Sam Rally - had never done one of them before and I'm pretty sure that will be the one and only for us. Now Escapade is different. We will be going to another one of them but not sure when. I really don't want to go to Sedalia because of the weather so that one is out this year. We may try and go to Gillette next year but that's too far away to plan for yet.
