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!

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!

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?

How about March 10-11 AND March 24-25?

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.

I could do those latter March dates too, and I promise I will try to as much as I can on my own, until I become life-threatening. I do want to know how to tow, and this is a great incentive--but I can only process so much at a time, and I have some skiing challenges to contend with between now and then. Ah I do love being one wih humiliation. So count me in.
Yours,
Janet

Western Region Women's Rally - March 23 - 25, 2007!

OK, ladies, looks like we're all in agreement. The (FIRST!) Western Region Women's Rally will be on March 23 - 25, 2007 at Cachuma Lake Recreation Area. The campground is first come first serve, $25.00 per night.

Barona is the full hook-up area. A friend tells me the best spots are the outside edge of the area, spaces 62 - 121.

Should we add the rally to the Rally Calendar and keep tabs of the "trailer chicas" attending on this thread?

So far we have 5:

BamCamper
Babeebloos
airdrmr
janetb
Excella3287

And, maybe Kristiana. I'm sure she will chime in when she returns from her trade show .

Sure, why not...it's a forum rally.
We may find some more trailer sistas out there on the "west side".

All together

It would be great if someone could be there friday am so that all spots could be together and make the reservation for one night for all attending then the next day everyone could do their own reservation. Monica and Brianna, my daughter, would not be able to get there until friday pm. We have stayed there many times and the spots mentioned earlier along the back are the most desirable and also the first to go. How many fireplaces does my wife need to bring? They have none on site.

Okie dokie, the rally is all set up on the official Rally Calendar. I've read that the calendar isn't the most reliable for keeping track of attendees, so I'll track here on this thread also.

If you can make it, just post here with the expected day of arrival.

We can TOW it!

Thanks Tin Sista.

We'll hold down the camp sites until our less westerly sistas can get out there too.

I may go on Thursday if I can work that out. I'll try to get them to hold the sites (if they will) so we will be all together. Which sites do we want? I camped there once but it's been a while. I wonder if we called if they would try to work with us. I don't think they take reservations but maybe they would work with us that day. Thoughts? Meredith?

And yes a firepit or two would be nice if they don't have them. Maybe Friday night we could do a "happy hour" followed by a "bring your own dinner and eat together" and then a potluck on Saturday night? We also did a potluck breakfast/brunch at 29 Palms that was fun...so maybe Sunday morning if people don't have to leave too early.

Breakfast Sat Sun

Girls Girls Girls put the squeeze on blkcat1, my BETTER HALF, she makes a mean casserole dish for breakfast that's made the night before, stick in the oven for an hour then omg breakfast served. Then by that time it would probably be bloody mary time. I'm thinking about buying a wig and changing my name. Sounds like a good time had by all involved
