Issue #134 [Archived Newsletters] June 1, 2016


H Loop (electric) is all booked already at Assateaque State Park, Maryland for the May 2017 event. There may be spots in the other loops (non-electric) so reserve NOW if you want to come. Nancy is bringing a kayak if anyone wants to kayak the back bay, which is supposed to be popular. They can also be rented there.

Porcupine Mountains Lake of the Clouds, a hike we will do on stop 3 of the UP Road Trip 2016. We can reserve sites for all four stops of the August 2016 UP Road Trip. If you are coming, reserve your sites now. August in the UP is a busy time and all campgrounds will be full.

Come camp where you can view a constant parade of ocean-going vessels from your campsite. This campground is right on the St. Clair River which is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway. We can book sites NOW for the Algonac (Michigan) camp-out. Book NOW as this is a popular campground and may fill up!

Watkins Glen, in the beautiful Finger Lakes area of western New York may be fully booked, but do try to get in for at least part of the September event time.

Scotty Images

Since we last camped with them, Stella the Great Dane Harrison got two new little sisters, Mazie Jane and June Bug.

At 83 years old Otto Vallastro just finished rebuilding his 1964 Scotty and attended the Natural Tunnel event. He also carved fabulous model cars out of solid blocks of balsa wood. Check them out!

After nine years of ownership, Mabel gave her custom made 3' Scotty (we called it the K9C) to Russell.

And Russell's dad, Michael Leichty, immediately redid it to match their big Scotty. Travel well Russell!
