Original Message Note: To make this thread clearer that the event is a go, I've removed my original message inquiring if people were interested. The first page of posts are related to people expressing the interest. All updates to the event as they stand now are replacing my original message.

Update 1: It looks like there is plenty of interest and I have a location worked out! It's called Jug Handle Creek Farm located on the coast just North of Mendocino. The dates are April 26th to the 29th. This place looks to be amazing given it's location and campsite areas they have available (just 5 minutes from the beach). I'm working on a deal to reserve their entire private"campground" which holds 20 trucks to start with (with possibility of overflow for a few more) for 4 days / 3 nights. Estimated cost right now is $150 per camper (with 2 people). I will continue to post updates at the top of this thread as details become available.

Update 2: I have booked the facility and we have a limited time to get enough signed up to have the campground to ourselves. We were able to come up with a better price of $150 for early bird reservations if you book before 1 January 2018. After 1 January 2018 the price may rise.

Proposed Schedule:
Thursday 7pm - Icebreaker + Margarita Night around Campfire

Friday 8am - Coffee, Juice & Bagels
Friday 9am - Explore Jug Handle Creek Farm and Nature Preserve
Friday 2pm - Beach Time!
Friday 6pm - Taco Bar + Potluck Appitizers
Friday 7pm - Campfire with Smores & Jalapeno Popcorn

Saturday 8am - Pancake Breakfast
Saturday 9am - Hike for those interested
Saturday 2pm - Mod Shop / Seminar Shop / Camper Tours
Saturday 7pm - Campfire + Dessert Potluck

Sunday 8am - Coffee, Juice & Bagels
Sunday 9am - Group Photos
Sunday 12pm - Picnic at the Beach then Farewells

Notable Notes:
1. This is a boon docking rally, full hookups are not available. Plan accordingly.
2. Pets are allowed but must be on a leash (this is a nature center with many wild animals about).
3. Trailer parking will be available though it will likely be near the road.
4. Showers are available at a nearby beach park.


Space is limited so RSVP soon!

Update 3: Payment link is now just a PayPal link instead of my website as it is easier and doesn't require so much information.

To send payment for the event, please use this PayPal link.

1. Robert and Evelyn A. - Confirmed

Don't do just TC rally.
I have great memories from rv.net rallies organized 10 years ago. One is San Pedro (?) gather over 40 rigs. Most of those people are still here.
Still have the T-shirt.

Talking about No CA location, the gold country in Lincoln area seem to be popular.
I would prefer something in Sierra, but most owners want full hook ups, what is not happening very often in nice locations.

Could be fun, especially if we could plan some other adventures around the trip. Example: March Meet Drag Racing in Bakersfield March 1-4 and then throw in a trip to Hearst Castle during our return.

1. General location you would be traveling from: Las Vegas
2. Interest Level (1 to 10, 10 being most interested): 9
3. Number of People that might attend: 2
4. Number of days you would be willing to attend: 3

Yes, Las Vegas isn't exactly "local" but would love to meet other truck camper owners. We've had our Lance Squire Lite since 1999 and have been up and down the Alaska Highway several times. Would tow trailer with motorcycles for this trip too!

Taking more flexibility for the location, I think Calico would be fun too.

Travel from Sacramento
High interest
It would be 2 of us, and
we could stay from 3-5 days

Depending on dates, extra activities could include:
Train ride to Santa Cruz
Hike in the Redwoods
Day at the Boardwalk/Pier/Beach
Day trip to Monterey (Aquarium, 17 mile drive, Point Lobos, Carmel)
Ocean fishing trip
Visit the TC "shrine" in Salinas,

and for those who must:
attend a race at Laguna Seca

Only places I know of in the Santa Cruz Mountains are Felton and Big Basin. I love the idea but I don't think either of those locations are good ones for a rally - of sorts. I've organized alot of larger events and I know how hard it is and it's a pain that lots of people "throw Rocks" at any of the ideas you come up with. Not trying to throw rocks but the location is going to be key to a successful rally.

Looking at UVAS canyon campground if it's repaired in time (2016 winter was harsh on it). It's in the Southern part of the Santa Cruz mountains near Gilroy. They have a group campground area that gives everyone their own campsite because it is just a loop of the main campground set aside for groups.

I'd be interested. Roaring Camp is a cool place to camp. In the spring they have a HUGE civil war re-enactment. Cannons, field hospital complete with amputations, (simulated of course) An MC narrating the whole thing during the battles and between battles you can walk the camps and talk with the participants.
Of course there's the train and a trip to Santa Cruz with it's boardwalk and other attractions.

I'm in Placerville, CA area and we always enjoy the high country for camping too.

I'm for keeping it to truck campers only mainly so we can relate and not have to deal with DW ogling the "big rigs" of which I have no interest. Ha! No hook ups for up to 4 or 5 days is fine with me if it gets us something remote.
