“Come and Go” Caravans 

Simply put, shorter “come and go” caravans allow participants to join, leave and/or re-join the caravan at any point. This ideal for working members or those with limited time.  Members of units in adjoining states may choose to join a short caravan as it nears their home state. 

Participants may be responsible for their own campsite reservations at state parks, thereby taking responsibility for cancellation.   They also pay individualized rally fees based on the activities in which they participated.     

Spreadsheets and a shorter time period make this easier for caravan leaders to calculate.

NorCal News Blast - Winter Caravan Coupon Now Due Sept 30th

“Streaming to Fun in the Southwest”
January 16th - February 1st
NorCal’s Annual Winter Caravan Searching for Sun
Note: Only 5 spots remain on this classic Winter
Caravan. The coupon and deposit dates have been
extended to September 30th, just for you!
We would like you to join us for two weeks of
relaxation fun and adventure in the great
southwest, away from the cold, low-clouds, and
rain of winter in Northern California
We will gather in Bakersfield January 16th to
socialize and enjoy a welcoming dinner. The next
day we are off for three days at the Hitching Post RV
Park in Las Vegas. While there we will visit the
popular Mob Museum, which chronicles Vegas’ early
history under the influence of - what else? - the Mob.
We also plan a guided tour of the beautiful Valley of
Fire, Nevada’s oldest state park. There will be a little
free time to ?? after all, we are in Vegas.
Moving down the road our next stop will be at Black
Canyon/Willow Beach RV Park in the Lake Mead
National Recreation Area. Please bring your
Golden Age Passport or NPS pass equivalent if
you have one. Here you will enjoy a guided rafting
adventure in fairly calm waters below Hoover Dam.
We will learn the local history and geology, view
natural hot springs,and maybe spy a desert bighorn
sheep or two. Lunch will be served on the trip.
Next we are on our way to Apache Junction, AZ,
and the Lost Dutchman State Park for 3 nights of
dry camping. But it won’t be too primitive - the
showers and dumpsite are new, and of course
there is the beautiful view of the Superstition
Mountains, and great hiking trails.. While we are in
Apache Junction we will have a family-style
chicken dinner at Barleen’s Arizona Opry and enjoy
the latest version of their popular and long-running
musical show. There is a lot to see and do in
Apache Junction, with more to come later.
Now, If you want to continue on with us to Tucson we
are going to end the caravan with 5 days of fun at the
Alumafiesta (Jan 27 - Feb 1). This is not an Airstream
rally. It is put on by the editors of Airstream Life
Magazine. You will have a good time I promise. We will
arrive 2 days early (Jan 25th and 26th) and camp at
the Lazydays KOA, the same campground as
Alumafiesta so you will not have to move. You should
add these to your Alumafiesta rally registration to get
the good fiesta price of $38 a night. Lazydays is a first
class RV Park. Full hook-ups with wi-fi. There will be a
tour or two that we are working on before Alumafiesta
starts, as part of your NorCal coupon. Register for
Alumafiesta directly at The price
is $355 for one and $130 for an additional person (free
t-shirt if registered by 9/15). Don’t forget to add in the
early days (Jan 25th and 26th). This is a great deal.
Lots of good entertainment, meals, and tours. So go
on-line and look it over . There are new tours and
things to do if you have been before. Hope you can
join us, and remember to complete your NorCal
caravan coupon and return it by September 30th.

 Short Caravan to 2015 Region 3 Rally, Charleston, S.C. If you are interested in the Spring Rally at Blueberry Hill Resort, use the contact information for the caravan.

The Florida Treasure Coast Unit will host a SHORT UNIT CARAVAN to the Region 3 Rally in Ladson, SC (Charleston area). The caravan will leave the FTCU Spring Rally at Blueberry Hill RV Resort, Bushnell, FL on Sunday morning, April 26, 2015, spend Sunday night near Jacksonville (approx. 150 miles), Monday and Tuesday nights near Savannah (approx. 150 miles) and arrive at the Region 3 Rally (approx. 90 miles) on Wednesday afternoon. Monday night we will enjoy dinner at one of the Savannah area’s fine restaurants. On Tuesday we will tour the historic area of Savannah, GA, and have lunch downtown. If touring Savannah is not your “thing” there is a Tanger Outlet Mall a few miles north of the campground near Hilton Head, SC. Activities and meals are voluntary. If you would rather do something else on Tuesday that would be fine. We will collect a kitty fee (TBD) to cover camping expenses. Meals and tours are on your own.

The FTCU rally is open to any WBCCI member. If you plan to caravan with us we encourage you to enjoy our rally beginning on Thursday, April 23, 2015.
