Steph, why don't you take a whack at a date for consideration? I talked to Vickie today and she says great idea. With her commitments she suggests we steer clear of holidays and the week around Memorial day. Neither of us are adverse to staying somewhere in Michigan. Hartwood Pines is it? Is a place that I have heard is nice but never have been to. River Ridge is a very nice RV resort near Grand Rapids on a river with a swimming pool, boat rentals and all the usual amenities and Vickie has a permanent site there and we could get sites across the road from hers. These are just suggestions. We are up to whatever the four of us can work out. There's the Airstream Park in PA sounds nice. You and Suz and Vickie know more places than I know of. But I would love to do it.

The Tin Can Tourists 10th annual rally in Milford, MI is May 17-20 and I am considering going again this year.

Well May is hard, with all the fun rallies. Then in June there's the midwest rally. So here's my suggestion to get the rivette rolling... July.

Not the weekend of the 4th of course, but 13, 20, or 27? That would give us enough time to get reservations if we decide to go to Hartwick Pines--the plants shut down then so there's potentially competition for sites but its not a lake park and we can get our reservations online(6 mo window). Anyplace sounds good to me for Michigan Rivette get together. Most of my summer is open as Dave is stuck at work with a big construction project--no 2 weeks off for him until next fall.

Cool! Those dates in July are fine with me. Brad usually avoids summer travel so I am available. Sounds like Hartwick might be crowded and of no particular feature to see? Let's throw out some other destinations for choice sake. Someone have any places they have been meaning to try out or are really excited about? We can pop links up.

The area of Michigan farther north around Traverse Bay and the Great Sand Dunes seems chock full of things to do. Just a suggestion though it may be too far north for the general interest. ~G

That's a good idea Georgia. I would like to see the area. How about here?
http://www.lakeleelanaurvpark.com/index1.html I better look on the map to see if that is the same area.

This is a really great thread but it is getting soooo long. Maybe we should start a few new threads by region to get some area rallies or get togethers going. It might be a little easier to find out what's going on in your area withour having to wade through all the posts. (And of course you can read the other threads to keep up with eveyone)

And hopefully we can have at least one national rally too.

I'll start a Western Region thread to begin talking about possible times and places for rallies. Anyone who is anywhere near the west, please join in!

I stayed there with my sister for a week. We spent much time seeing the local sights, but if I were by myself I might have just lolled around the campground. It is pristine - even magical. Several mature apple trees grow in the meadow, and you're welcome to pick anything the deer can't reach.

Maybe Paula and Jamie would join us if we had the rally here. That did seem nice.

Our Western sisters yes carry on the woman's rallies! Wish we could all be there with you. You Tow Girls!!!!!!!!!

Michigan might work for me depending on the timing. There's a workshop I want to go to in MI and the dates were just announced (June 22-24) so if there's some way I could work around that it would be great! Other plans for the summer include a trip west with the family and it's possible I could tie into a women's rally from that trip somehow. We'll probably be doing that trip in July.

You Cali girls got it all -- Airstreams and sunshine! I'm so jealous. One of these years I'm gonna pack up and join ya'll. For that year I suggest we do the Rivettes Wine-ing Women tour through the Napa Valley.

-Jamie

p.s. Kristiana -- finally checked out your webpage. Amazing stuff!! Just gorgeous!! I'm pointing Mr. dougjamie in that direction for gift-giving time.

Hey Jamie,
It would be so great if we could all meet up. Guess we need a consensus on dates, etc.
If you have free time as you come/go through Michigan give me a holla I'll pm you the phone/etc.

I'd prune away, Janet ... Have you really towed if there are no branches coming through the window?
