Lake Cachuma

Just back from the NorCal Rally and I'm all fired up to try this towing thing by myself!

Lake Cachuma is a great option for this rally, lots of full hookup sites and plenty to see and do. Cachuma Lake Recreation Area, Santa Barbara County Parks, Santa Barbara, California

Thumbs up You can do it Meredith!

Meredith,

First off, I miss you! It was great to meet you and your family, I wish
we got to spend more time together, but with my runaway doggie showing
up everywhere...she a smart one.

Lake Cachuma looks fantastic, count me in!

I've got my Rosie outfit (complete with kerchief) all picked out.

Who else in in?...

Rosie rocks!

Hi Kristiana -

Yes, it was great to meet you and Osa too. You and your trailer towing expertise are my inspiration! I am sorry that we didn't get more time to hang out. Unfortunately, relaxation is not something that I get to do much when camping with the kids - there are always frozen puddles to ice skate on, a game of crazy eights to play, or a sand pile to jump off of somewhere.

Thanks for the Rosie scarf, I had to pry it away from Taylor on the way home and it's now tucked in the 'stream for safe-keeping. I plan on wearing it on my first solo trip with the trailer.

If there's enough interest in a women's rally in this area, I will volunteer to do some coordinating with the campground.

Count me in! I'd love to camp with you all. You can do it Meredith...we'll all help each other. Lake Cachuma is an easy drive for me...in fact I drove past the campground on my way home from 29 Palms. I've stayed there and there is plenty of room. Let's talk dates. How about March? (Four Corners in Feb. and NorCal in April). I'll round up Kim and Debra if they are available.

Let's (mini) Rally,
Laurel
(Bam)

P.S. My Jeep is wearing the bandana...

Trailer chicks rule!

Chicas,

March sounds great to me!
We'll have our own West Side Sista's Spring Break!
Let's round up the trailer chicks and make this happen.
Let me know what I can do over here to help organize.

I'm headed to Vegas (trade show) day after tomorrow, so
I'll be off the forums for next week. I'll check in after that though.

I'm really excited for our mini rally!

Cheers.
k.

Let's set a date

Ok, so March sounds good to me too. I am free any weekend in March except the first weekend. That leaves the weekends of March 10 - 11, March 17 - 18, March 24 - 25, or March 31 - April 1. What sounds good to everyone?

Hello Bam Camper

I agree with str8strm with regards to Ocean Mesa. We were there when they however we did not know it ,we were in our strange Airstream, but what a wonderful place. I'm sure that with connections all would be good. What about a rally there for all? Not to take away from your original thread about an all ladies rally I'm sure my wife would like me to tow setup and leave and return to clean up, hookup and tow. On a side note there is a small get together in Malibu with fabulous ocean views the same time as 4 corners rally interested? Thanks Ron and Debbie

I'd love to go to a women's rally! But I really can't tow anything that's not attached anatomically. Is a "drop off" legitimate? That would leave me and "The Toaster," with my TV and driver off to SB for family visits...
Cachuma and Oceanmesa are both great choices, with easy access.
Thanks for getting this going!
Janet

legitimate?

Janet, if this rally for women is in Lake Cachuma count my wife in if its OK someone other than a female towing setting up and tearing down, fore I also have daugther and son-in-law and in-laws in SB. What does the group say to this arrangement? Not wanting to stir the pot just adding to the group of happy campers.

Hi all. The more the merrier I always say. I think the original idea of a women's rally was to encourage women to get out there and develop camping and trailering skills by helping and supporting each other. It might be possible to get help hitching up at home and then having us all help each other set up once at the campground. But if that isn't comfortable for anyone, just come anyway. It doesn't matter how you get there or who helps set up (to me anyway...other people please chime in here). Just come and rally!

Laurel

Another thought might be to have two Santa Barbara Rallies...one smaller women's rally at Lake Cachuma and then a larger one couple of weeks later at Oceanmesa. People could attend one or both.

Thoughts?

Hi Janet - I agree with Bamcamper, the more the merrier. My Mom and sisters may be my "houseguests" for the weekend. And, no rules about who drives what where, as long as you get there and the girls can rally!

I've never pulled our trailer by myself but, even if my husband has to "spot" me, I plan to do as much as I can on my own. A girl's got to start somewhere!

How about the weekend of March 24th for Cachuma?

March 24th (before or after 23-25 for however long you want to stay) works for me. I would probably arrive Thursday or Friday and stay til Sunday or Monday.
