2018 Western Caravan
We are bringing back the popular Western Caravan. This caravan is scheduled for June 30 - July 19. We will start our adventure from Gillette, WY at the conclusion of the International Rally. The caravan will travel to Buffalo, WY with a visit to an original Wild West hotel complete with bullet holes in the walls and ceiling. Then on to Cody, WY the home of Wild Buffalo Bill Cody. We have planned several events there. Next is Yellowstone National Park for a few days visiting all the water geysers and water falls. The Tetons will be our next stop with a visit to the former Jackson Hole now named Jackson, WY. From here we travel to Virginia City, MT for a quick stop and on to Helena, MT for a spectacular guided tour down the river to the Gates of the Mountains. Next is Great Falls, MT with a visit to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and viewing of some of the falls. Last stop will be West Glacier with a couple days exploring Glacier National Park. Your Caravan leaders will be Jerry & Phyllis Rose. We will depart on July 19, 2018. We anticipate reservations will begin on December 4, 2017.
2018 Calgary Stampede & Canadian Rockies Caravan
Join us for a fun filled time at the Calgary Stampede and Canadian Rockies Caravan scheduled for July 5-17.
Join us for a fun filled time at the Calgary Stampede and Canadian Rockies Rally Dates are scheduled for July 5-17 (note add’l days have been added). Dave & Joanne Killey along with Ron & Wanda Llewellyn will be hosting this event. During the event we will have a White Hat ceremony will take place making all the members an Honorary Calgarian. Spend 6 nights in the town of Cochrane, Alberta. The “Newmar Bus” will provide the transportation to all stampede events. There is lots to see and do in this area and there is ample free time to explore. Then get ready for spectacular scenery as you drive your coach into Banff National Park (Entrance fee is NOT included in your rally fee and must be paid at park entrance) then into Jasper National Park to the historic town of Jasper where you will spend three nights in prime wilderness area of Whistler National Park. The distance is 387klm/241 miles with an approximate driving time of 5 hours. Here you will enjoy the 5-hour scenic train/bus tour. Your drive back to Banff will be highlighted by a stop at the Athabasca Glacier where there will be a snow coach waiting for you to take you up the glacier and the most spectacular scenery there is. Next stop is Banff Tunnel Mountain RV Park for a 3-night stay. A guided tour of the famous Banff Springs Hotel along with a picture session with a RCMP in full scarlet uniform and farewell dinner at the historic Old Spaghetti Factory are just a few of the activities planned for Banff.
We anticipate reservations will begin in on December 4, 2017. This event will be limited to 30 units and we feel it will be a quick sell out.
We do plan to hold the annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Rally in early October 2018. Exact dates and details will be released towards the end of this year or beginning on next year.
Due to the devastation of Hurricane Irma we had to cancel our Rally in the Keys for 2017. We do plan to reschedule the event for 2018. Rally dates will be in early December. More information will be announced after the first of the year.
