The NEXT big NorCal rally?

There has been a lot of interest in another rally now that we have all gotten home safely and recovered from all that food, those Margarita balls, the flying spuds, tarantulas, and all those wild turkeys and other Airstreamers.

Any suggestions as to when and where???

There was some talk about Joshua Tree but there are no hookups there which would put a damper on the lighted disco balls. Somewhere near the middle of the state seemed to work well for a lot of people.

The idea of picking a place with plenty of sites and having people register on their own also seemed to work well.

Thoughts?

Rally on,
Laurel

Let's go somwhere warm.

Slab City?.

How about the least used State Park in California? It's East of Palmdale. 3 Miles North of Lake Los Angeles and Right next to Edwards Airforce base? I'll get the name.

When I talked to Big Dee at the rally, he metioned something about the Casini Ranch on the North Coast at the mouth of the Russian River west of Santa Rosa, but I think he was looking at springtime. Maybe a desert rally in the winter would be good in the meantime.

We really enjoyed Pismo Beach last fall, maybe something by Morro bay or Cambria?

Many of the State parks have length limit sizes. There are several non- goverment parks in that area to look into.

Nor Cal?

I thought that 'Nor Cal' refered to Northern California. We did not make it to the recent rally because it was just a wee bit out of the distance we felt traveling at this time. That's not to say we would not have enjoyed going. So we said peraps we will go to the next one because more than likely it would be held in "Northern California". All the location suggestions so far are more 'So Cal' We thought of you all at Lake San Antonia as my wife and I were enjoying the Vintage Travel Trailer Rally in Coloma on the same weekend. 1/2 of the trailers represented there were Airstreams.

Well, I thought I wuld have heard by now "All right, Neil, why don't you suggest a No. Cal. location?! I am new to rallys so if I could get the 'requirements' for such a large gathering I would check around up here. Here being the Central Valley, Tahoe and points north into Redding and such.
Neil.

Half Moon Bay in January

Jan and I are camping at Half Moon Bay State Park Martin Luther King weekend, January 12,13,14. Never stayed there before but it looks like a nice place right on the beach. No hookups but there's a dumpstation and large 55' back in sites. Check it out at googlearth. We made a reservation through reserveamerica.com. Any of you Airstreamers are welcome to join us then. You would have to make reservations on your own. Still lots of sites available. Could be cold and rainy or could be sunny and warm that time of year. But hey...who cares! I'll be in my Airstream!

Well we could do a Northern California rally. AND a Southern California rally. And maybe somewhere central as well. We can just call them California rallies. There is always a debate as to where the south ends and the north starts anyway.

There are enough people on this forum that wherever we decide to go it will work well for some and not as well for others. But let's not let that get in the way and get some dates on our calendars.

I have a question about selecting campgrounds...do most people want/need hookups?

We prefer full hook-ups since boondocking will require some repairs for us. But, having said that, we'd consider anything if it means we can rally again!

Hee-hee... I just have to say, Northern CA is definitely up here in Eureka. I'm from Santa Cruz originally... but I'd say anything north of San Fran qualifies... just playing... we have a good laugh up here about this subject !

Big Sur is AWESOME- never camped there. There are beach front sites at Sea Cliff beach in Aptos. Fort Bragg is really pretty too.

California is a HUGE state. My friend just left for a 16+ hour drive to San Diego. Santa Cruz definitely felt half-way, but that is just the coast !
