      This will be our first West Coast rally, we did attend the 2019!East Coast Rally so we are looking forward to seeing old acquaintances from the forum, the 2020 Quartzsite gathering and making new friends.

      See you soon
      You'll love it! We went in 2018 and had a great time.

        Just got a reservation for space #2--last one in the front row. Since we don't have the Northwood golf cart anymore, I will bring my 4 wheel walker to steady me on the uneven ground. This is a 50 amp site--if anyone in the 30 amp spots in the front row wants to trade I'm up for it. We were going to sell the old Fox but since we still have her figured to make one more run. Hoping our tires make it one more season.....

            We would be more than willing to give Linda our spot #7 so she can get around better, and would love to move down around site #13. Anyone around there want to trade for site #2???

              Ok just got more news from Taylor Spike at Lippert, he will also be demonstrating slide toppers and awnings for the rally, as well as answering any of your questions. Gary from MORride also has agreed to return, with more info on this to follow.
              I have a meeting at Northwood this Friday morning with the CEO Craig Orton to discuss their role in this years rally....wish me luck!

                  Ok had a very nice meeting with CEO Craig Orton and CFO Cerise Smallwood. They were both so easy to chat with, very down to earth. Reminded me of chatting with Ron Nash.

                  As we have heard from other business, its been a very trying year for them and the challenges continue. In regards to the rally they truly wish they could be involved this year but it would put them at to much risk as a company and as well as their employees so while they do not have any intentions of abandoning their support of the rally in future years they will bow out until 2022. I could tell it was a hard decision for them but as they explained it did make sense and I assured them that I understood.

                  What this mean is there will be no 2021 budget for running the rally other then the rally fees I charged, no factory tours, no Saturday raffle & no popping by the factor for any support or parts of any kinds for any reason. If you need anything then please contact the local dealer which is Thunder RV. I will continue to put together what activities I can provide that can be carried out safely and with the cooperation of all attending I am sure we will have fun.

                          Reading todays morning paper and it had the CDC recommendations (posted on CDC site April 2 2021) for those of us who have chosen to be vaccinated. I still predict even more restriction will be lifted over the next few months.

                          Now off to the garage as I am trying to build my own Nash trailer to put behind the golf cart! Oh what crazy idea do I have for this years towing challenge!
