Issue #143 [Archived Newsletters] April 2, 2017


Decide NOW 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. Booking sites for stop 1, Starved Rock State Park begins April 5!

The NSSO will again visit Savannah, the oldest city in Georgia, founded in 1733. It was a city planned by General James Oglethorpe and has beautiful laid out squares and old historic buildings. This is River Street where the street is paved with ballest stone from the ships who docked here on the Savannah River, 17 miles up from the Atlantic Ocean. For sure a place to visit at least once in a life time. We can reserve sites NOW 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.

We will be camping at Assateague in Maryland over Memorial weekend. This campground has been fully booked, but cancellations do occur so check frequently if you wanted to come and did not get in.

Camping Opportunities

Scott Simpson is just about finished with his HiLander. One of the nicest I've seen. What a great use of colors. Beautiful Scott, something to be proud of for sure!

Welcome new member Henry Leichey (on the left). Henry got a 2017 Serro Scotty from Make a Wish. We wish many happy years of camping with his new Scotty and hope we meet up with him in a campground some day. Stay strong Henry!
