Congratulations!  Looking forward to meeting you.  You will probably win the 'longest distance traveled award' which will garner you congrats from all in attendance.  My wife and I will win the wimpy award as it is only 33 miles away.  Do you have family in the area?

This is going to be a short trip only about 6,000 miles.  Last summer I did a much longer trip 19,204 miles.  Chico CA to Dallas to see a friend from high school, then up tp Nashville, TN then down the Natchez Trace to Natchez, then followed the coast to Florida and down to Key West.  From there up the east coast of Florida and into North Carolina and did the Shenandoah and Blue Ridge Parkway from there over to the east coast and up thru Maine and into Nova Scotia and Sydney.  From there down the St. Lawrence seaway to Niagara Falls.  From there into Canada and up to Prudhoe Bay then back to Fairbanks and the Alaskan highway back to Seattle and then home to Chico.

Update to the 2023 Traverse City R-Pod Rally:

Rally Central will be site 177.  Most scheduled activities will be take place at that site. 

Many will be staying all 3 nights over Father's Day weekend, checking in on June 15th and checking out on June 18th.  Know in advance that there will be plenty of down tie purposely built into the schedule to give everyone an opportunity to visit and enjoy all things that Traverse City has to offer during most of Friday and Saturday.

For starters, Thursday night will be low key.  Feel free to drop by site 177, or not for a very informal bonfire gathering.  No ativities are scheduled for that evening.

Friday you will have the entire day to yourself.  However, a possible optional potluck breakfast, which would be something new this year, is under consideration for Friday morning.  Starting at 6 pm, we will have a potluck dinner at site 177, followed of course by a bonfire.  1/4#, black angus hotdogs will be the main entree (charcoal grilled of course!) will be the main entree and will be provided by our hosts free of charge.  If you don't like hotdogs, bring your own entree and if it is a meat, we will grill that over the charcoal as well.  Also, please bring a desert or dish to pass, your own beverage, and your own table service.  We will also plan on distributing any Forest River giveaways on Friday evening by picking names out of a hat.

After dinner a Q & A about all things R-Pod will take place.  After that the rest of the night will be spent around the bonfire getting to know one another.

Saturday we will have the chance to tour each others' R-Pods to see what people have done with their wonderful home away from home.  Participation is totally optional and will start at 11 am and last until 1 or 2 in the afternoon.  Free time after that until 6pm when we will once again gather at site 177 for another informal potluck.

Around 7 pm the fun will start.

All attendees are requested to bring a gift, if possible from your local area, valued at no more than $20 for our back-by-popular-demand Chinese auction.  Gifts selected by all will be subject to being stolen, or permanently borrowed if you will, up to a maximum of 3 times by others.  Participation in this auction is entirely optional, but it also highly recommended!!!

After the auction, those wishing to do so will once again gather around site 177 for another bonfire and opportunity to chat and exchange stories with old and new R-Pod friends.

Sunday of course brings checkout time, which is no later than 11 am.  Beginning at 9:30am we will hold an optional nondenominational service, again at site 177, that lasts about 30 minutes.You are invite to join us if your are so inclined. 

Also likely expect some corn hole contests and possible an informal euchre tournament to occur during those hours on Friday or Saturday when there's nothing officially scheduled. 

We all look forward to meeting all of you.  Please feel free to post and questions or comments you may have, and I will get back to you ASAP. 

If you are still thinking of attending but haven't signed up yet, do so soon, only 7 open sites are available as of this writing.
