Issue #142 [Archived Newsletters] March 1, 2017


Assateague in Maryland where you camp with the wild ponies, has been booked for months, but cancellations may happen. If you want to go, do try to get in. More info...

Decide if you want to join us on the road trip west to Iowa. The caravan will leave Mabel's Glade in Delton, MI and stops first at the RV Museum in Elkhart, IN. Then we travel to Illinois and camp for two nights at Starved Rock State Park. We head to Maquoketa Caves State Park in Iowa for the rest of the trip. Beautiful country and beautiful campgrounds and of course, the best people - as we say, "cute trailers, friendly people and awesome adventures"! Booking sites will begin April 1. Mabel will be reminding you.

Fort Pulaski is a must see when one visits Savannah, Georgia. It is on the way out to Tybee Island, another must see. That is the Savannah River in the background. Nice hiking here and sometimes you'll see an alligator in the moat! We can reserve a site for the Skidaway Island event (not specific sites, a site will be chosen when you arrive) now. If you are coming to this event, reserve soon because the campground informed me that this is their busiest time.
