The potluck for the upcoming Watkins Glen event will be held at Cheryl and Scott Ovenshire's Finger Lakes property, aka Lucille's place. Lucille is a 1955 LintzCraft manufactured in Michigan. She's a real cutie. The web page for this event has been updated with several events added for Saturday, Sept. 17. Check it out!

Book sites NOW for the Algonac (Michigan) camp-out and get your spot on the river so you too can watch freighters going back and forth to the Great Lakes.

Make your reservations now for a late October this year camp out.We will camp near Elkhart and go enmasse to visit the RV Museum and Hall of Fame. We will also pay homage to John Serro who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1987.

Scotty Gatherings

The UP Road Trip 2016 commenced with folks gathering at Mabel's Glade in Delton, MI

Many thanks to member Mark Kehoe who held a reception for the Roadtrippers at the campground he is a ranger for in Gladwin, MI. We had a wonderful time as Mark was a fantastic host.

Stop 3 of the Road Trip where several parted ways, two headed to Oregon from there, one to Wisconsin and another to Canada. Four of us continued on to Stop 4, Mackinaw City.
Check out the video, best one yet Mabel says!
