Issue #160 [Archived Newsletters] September and October, 2018


We return to Pennsylvania in 2019 - Pine Grove Furnace State Park (see below)

We will camp Niagara Falls, the US side in 2019 (see below)

We are returning to Silver Springs in Ocala, Florida in 2019 (see below)

And returning to Tom Sawyer RV Park on the Mississippi River in spring of 2020

This was the view out the door of Mabel's Scotty at our previous Tom Sawyer event

Also in 2020 a three stop Michigan event that will take in Lake Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, then cross the state to Lake Huron for a glass bottomed boat tour of shipwrecks and then we will end at Algonac State Park on the shore of the St. Clair River which is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway for ocean traffic accessing the great lakes.

Camper's Cove in Alpena for the Lake Huron step of the event

And Algonac where it was so much fun to just hang out and watch the river traffic with a friend or two.

Attentention all Alaskan NSSO members

This isn't an official NSSO event however Nancy and Ed and Peggy Kowalski, all NSSO members will be flying in to Anchorage in July of 2019, renting an RV and touring. We will be camping in Talkeetna, Riley Creek in Denali, Fairbanks, Tok, Glennallen, Eagle River in Chugach State Park, on the Homer Spit and in Seward. Some members from Ontario, Canada may be driving with trailers to join us in Tok and carry on from there. It would be great if any Alaskan members could join us at any of these campgrounds that may be near to them. This is very likely the only time the NSSO will be in Alaska!

The NSSO got a new assistant and Mabel got a new sister. Meet Molly Magnolia, a senior german shephard/beagle we just adopted. She rides like a pro so expect to meet her at upcoming NSSO events.
