NorCal Rally, Pismo Coast Village, October 7-9

Well, let's get start planning the next one for October. With apologies to our northern most ralliers, I think we agreed to have the next rally in central Cal so Uwe and other SoCal members will come. There are many good spots but I've narrowed it to four good choices. All choices offer the many day activities of the Central Coast, such as dune buggy rides, ATV rentals, Hearst Castle tours, wine tasting, beachcombing, golf, kite flying, bird watching, kayak rentals, mountain biking, and many, many more. I am excited already!

1) Pismo Coast Village RV Resort is an extremely popular and highly rated destination park for families on the Pismo Beach. The resort features a pool, spa, bike path along beach, fire rings, picnic tables, grassy sites and within walking distance to town. The resort is huge but reservations can be hard to get on weekends and everyone will need to make their own so something to consider. Added bonus: Free WiFi.

2) El Chorro Regional Park is located 4.5 miles north of San Luis Obispo on an old dairy farm. El Chorro contains Dairy Creek Golf Course and features a day use area with barbeque facilities, volleyball courts, an off leash dog park (with two separate areas - one for smaller pets and one for larger pets), horseshoe pits, a botanical garden, softball fields and various hiking trails for all to enjoy. Reservations can only be made by a group so this could work well.

3) Morro Dunes Travel Trailer and Resort Campground is located on the dunes of Morro Bay with a view of Morro Rock. Horseback riding on the dunes is very popular here. There is a group BBQ area.

4) Wine Country RV Resort is located in the quaint town of Paso Robles. The brand new resort features pool, spa, horseshoe pits, pool table and clubhouses. The resort is surrounded by 60 winery tasting rooms. This is the beautiful region featured in the movie "Sideways". Added bonus: Free WiFi.

Okay now everyone, let's vote. And let's discuss what weekend in October.

Pool & Spa sound good...

Dan-

Super Kudo's for Russian River! Some of us may not be able to wait for October, but I'm already working on calendar clearing.. Since end of month is big rush/end of fiscal year for us plus Halloween, I'd certainly vote for early to mid October, when weather near ocean also likely to be dryer and warmer.. Put me down for 7-9 October... (Columbus Day weekend - School Holiday??) And, we'd attend at any of 4 sites offered, but having an ocean nearby is always nice...

Will try to get our pics from Russian River uploaded later tonight... Made it home with new battery OK, though drivers in Berkeley/Oakland area still have much to learn about patience and courtesy.. Again took almost 3 hours.. Trailer washed, cleaned up, parked in hideaway and ready for next run..

>> Tip for the day.. When parking, be sure to check furnace "off" switch.. Dianne was surprised this AM when returning towels and furnace tried to maintain 50 degrees.. Just lowering thermostat not enough, if gas and main power still turned on...

Any place is fine with me

Voted for Morro Bay because of how close it is to the beach, but I'm going to be excited to go anywhere.

Thanks Dan for taking the lead and organizing these great rallies for us.

Casini was a blast! October just seems so far away. I think groups of us should get together and just plan to meet at some favorite sites during the in between month.

Pismo sounds like fun. I have actually stayed at Pismo Coast Village before, it's right at the beach, much like Morro Strand. Stayed there, too.
Wine Country RV is also very nice, but brand new and a bit like a parking lot, with all the shrubs and trees being new plantings. Their WiFi is great, though.
I'd vote for Pismo, though. Might be fogged in in the mornings, but the little town is great for dining, shopping, walking, biking, beachcombing, etc.etc.
I can NOT do Oct. 14/15/16, or Halloween weekend.
Did you know that the weekend of September 25 has the California Region 12 Rally in Paso Robles?
I will promote the event to others in my area, once a date is set.

Wish we could go, but we have a stork coming to our house around Oct 21

We'll have to catch the Spring rally, but I might need a bigger trailer by then

Oct Rally

Thanks Dee for starting this early,
We could attend either of the first 2 weekends in Oct. We have other plans the end of the month.
I voted for El Chorro for the more rural, less crowded setting.

Those choices sound great!

I like the one with the dog parks as it will be nice to get him out of the Caravel once and a while. Vollyball also sounds fun. Will we need to commit ahead of time or will it be possable to attend last minute? I will be on a 3-4 month trip around the coasts of the U.S. andwill be unsure of my timing untill about a week beforehand. Anyway sounds like a great rally, good luck!

Depending on our daughters traveling soccer schedule, we'll have to wait to commit, however our choice would be to camp on Pismo Beach .

Incidently, it was great to meet all of you at the Casini rally. We're looking forward to the next adventure

I like the first weekend in October. However, anyone is fine since that is definitely enough notice for us. It just depends upon what is available. It may be hard to get all the sites together at PCV.

Getting reservations at all, much less together is a worry for PCV. I have tried to get reservations before months ahead only to be completely denied. That is why I voted for El Chorro. We will be guranteed to get as many spaces as we need, all next to each other at El Chorro. I don't think it's as much fun if the trailers aren't lined up together but spread out through the campground. I really liked the way we were ALL together at Casini. So consider this when voting.

Also wondering who is voting but not replying with a message? Seems some non-ralliers are voting but have no intention of attending this Fall. I don't know why people would vote if they are not attending? Anyway, I think I will only count votes from past ralliers or potential ralliers that post a message saying they want to attend.

October 7th-9th

Seems the early weekends of October are the ones of choice. John suggested the first weekend, October 7th-9th. I think that weekend works for all that chimed in so far. Is there anybody that can't make that weekend? If nobody objects, let's settle on October 7-9. Hopefully, with an earlier date in October, there will be less chance of rain then the last two rallies.

We voted for Pismo. Big Dee, did you or can you try Pismo for reservations just to see if they even may be avalible to make in a couple months when it's decided when and where the rally will be?

Tinsel,

I am heading down to PCV on Saturday for SIX NIGHTS!!! So I will see about group reservations in person and will report back. Actually, I plan to check out all the locations. There is free WiFi at PCV so I will be online next week. I'll keep everyone updated.
