Hi from Homewood, IL. . .have any other Midwest Casita owners checked in lately? We will get our new 17 ft SD in November, and after a round of snowbirding, we'll be back in the area in mid-March. Would anyone be interested in a Spring rally in this region?

No, we haven't even gotten that close to the idea yet. . .just wondering how many might be interested since post on the Midwest site have been few and far between.

As a Rally Host, I'll offer you this advice:

If you plan it, they will come.

Pick a campground, pick your dates, pick a name (optional), and put it out there. You may have only a couple of Casitas show up, but, hey, that's a start! If you decide to do it again next year, you'll have more Casitas. I've watched the Quartzsite Gathering grow from 13 in its first year to more than 85 trailers six years later.

We are probably not the ideal candidates for rally hosts; too much like that four letter word. . .w@&k! :glare: Actually, the Spring may see us dealing with total knee replacement stuff for several months.

Hosting a Rally doesn't have to be more work than you want it to be. Just post where and when you're going camping and invite others to join you.

Hey Jeff & Suzanne, if you end snowbirding in southern Florida this winter, look us up near the Everglades at www.miamicamp.com Our camp is in the middle of farms in an old avocado grove just 15 minutes to Everglades, 40 mins to Keys and lots of activities. We will be in the "Clampetts" section!!! Dennis & Judy Ozier Sullivan, Il

Thanks for the heads up. Actually, we will be snowbirding in Arizona and Nevada, visiting RV friends from our fulltiming days. After Suzanne gets the left knee replaced, we will probably head Southeast for Winter 2014-2015.

We would be interested in a weekend rally in early summer (June,etc.) in the Midwest.
We enjoy a Racine County, Wisconsin campground a few times each year.
