I work with kids quite a bit. I have only over many years found two or three kids I couldn't successfully deal with. Their parents are still searching for them.


Oops did I use my outside voice???

Sorry that came across wrong. It isn't about too many kids, and I wrote that post prior to reading that the Dogpatch family would be unable to attend later. It was about there being smaller crowds after Labor Day when fewer families will be vacationing. I remember enjoying Catherine's Landing more on weekdays when there were few campers other than us there. But that's just me. And if we did put it to a vote, I would only have 1 vote.

Maybe it would be better if I had asked all RVMs to fill in these blanks. "I would like to go to a GC if it was held within ____ miles of ____ (city) on these dates ___/__/2015."

I know there will never be a time or place that will please everyone and I don't expect my wishes to carry more weight than any other RVMs. The idea of 2 or more GCs each year seems VERY appealing.

In Kansas... School starts before Labor day and it still surprises me when I hear of other schools starting before as my whole life experience has been about the middle of August... it's been time to get ready and head back to school....I don't even think about that!

If I would have won you would have known it by now. Spent $60 and won $12. What I lose each individual drawing I make up in volume. Usually ignore the lotto until the interest really peaks. We would go to Fort Wilderness soon after we purchased a Prevost.

If there are votes - I would say full timers like us - with the ability to suit ourselves get half a vote. We want to accommodate as many as possible and we'll probably be in Utah / Idaho area for a month and a half or two. Full timers could miniC up there and in AZ pretty easily about any time from mid August on.

JMHO...

And Barb - we all know you don't have a contentious bone in your body. Sena stole it and broke it long ago....

Motorhome magazine has an article on Zion.... And a one page thing on Lake Ouachita.
I also bought the book Steve bought on Zion and Bryce.
Same magazine listed best group areas...

While I would prefer September due to less crowds, it is not because of kids, there would be more chance of 15-20 rigs getting together in a park.......

But i agree with Barb, regardless, i would like to see it voted on.... And not just set a date...... But i think each number gets one vote......

But that being said, even if I do vote, until we find out Larrys status, we cannot confirm any date. He has to have his ICD replaced, until it beeps, insurance will not cover it, battery is almost gone, and once it beeps, he will have to have surgery within 2-3 weeks, so........ We are limited to how long and how far we can travel..... Tried to get them to do it this month...... Nope.

But i really would like to see two a year...

Diane, I heard it beeping, didn't you?? How many people have to hear it beep before the beeping insurance company will do their job?

First, let me tell you that I carry jumper cables. Have no fear Larry.

Okay! I was kidding. Health is most important, but if you work harder you may get it to beep earlier. Just sayin' (humorously)

As to any GC, not everyone will be able to attend every gathering. The camaraderie is wonderful, and it is wonderful on this thread - thank you. As for August this year, well that is four months after we see ya'll and it may be to soon for ya'll (I know Y'all instead of Ya'll, but I like the later and you still understand the context.). For 2015, in August, we will be far into the Northwest U.S., so Dennis and Les can stop by somewhere in WA or OR and visit us. We try and beat the heat and we will not be headed home until the end of August. September is a better month for us to try and get to Bryce or surrounding area. Just plan. If we can make it we can, if not:

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

p.s., We live in a temperate climate (most of the time) so anyone that wants to come down this way and see the area we will be happy to be tour guides if we are here. A few have already been here and I hope they had fun and want to come back. As we travel and your dwelling, whether it be S&B or RV, is in our path, we'll stop and say hello whenever possible.

Don't fret over it. All those 'droids can turn their systems sideways and look at it. I just picked up the 27" iMac and turned it on it's side.
