Just FYI, the riots are walking protests now but probably about 30 miles north of the campground I suggested. The big issue is all the fun activities for that week have been cancelled due to the Covid-19. We are holding steady right now but it seems to be gaining strength in many states so it is much safer for all of us to not gather this year.

I know we are under the microscope all over the world right now and I pray the issues are being dealt with in a good way. Our governor is really working to right the wrongs that have happened. Keeping all in my prayers.

Hi Gerry
Good to see your post! Unfortunately, our rally for this year was going to be in the Minneapolis area which is really bad for the rioting and CoVid so we are going to delay it until next year. We will certainly keep you in the know if anything for this summer gets put together.

Hay team! Long time away from here!

Just checking on any get togethers planned for this year, looking a little doubtful, which is too bad. Let me know if your decision changes.

I agree also. We're not going far from home this summer. As well as the rally I was hoping for a road trip to Forest City, IA to visit my cousin and her family, that won't happen either. Our Good Sam chapter is having a campout this week for a couple of days, no meals together, but not ready for it yet.

I totally agree. We just got word last night our State Fair has been cancelled for sure which is during that week and I am sure the Renaissance Fair will be cancelled as well. The Mall of America is now open but very limited numbers to be let in at one time.

I feel we have to cancel as no of us want to pick up anything and if someone gets sick while here, I would have a hard time forgiving myself. How about a tentative plan for next year and think about dates as the year goes on.

We will be planning on getting to TX. because of mom but that may be our trip for this year. A little frightening when we came home and I feel things are even more precarious now.

I sort of agree with PJ. Unless things change quickly which I don't expect will happen, not many of us are planning any trips. We may have to postpone this rally until next year!

I'm going to let you know now that with everything going on and not even sure if there will be any trips (still hoping to got to Texas for the winter) we WILL NOT PLAN on doing this years rally.

Sure hope things will be better for all of us next year.

I go by the name of PJ and live north of KC, MO. Winter in East Texas.

Onward and Downward

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

I agree it's too early to plan but if we choose to cancel, I would like to look at next year and if we do cancel to begin thinking and planning in the fall/ winter. Right now, it looks iffy BUT we have had several things open so I think this is a test the waters situation. The MN. state Fair has been cancelled as there is no way people can be protected when shoulder to shoulder and hundreds of thousands attending. Casinos and campgrounds are opening as well a salons (YEAH!!!!!) and other small businesses. The cases that have been increasing are mostly on the west side and southwest corner of the state. our area is holding right now.

This is the information I have right now. I haven't talked with the campground as of yet. So will hold for now.

I'm going to say we won't make the rally. School should be back in session and it's a long drive for a weekend. Everyone that goes have a wonderful time.

Chris, so sorry to hear DH needs surgery but after he gets it, hopefully he will feel normal again after he heals. Being in fresh air is so much better for us. I feel the campgrounds should stay open and just limit numbers of people. I hope an pray this pandemic gets cured soon. I worry for mom and handicapped brothers. Make sure you check healthgrades for best surgeon.

Thought I would stop in to say that all Good Sam's activities in Texas are currently suspended for the rest of the year. They don't even want local chapters to meet and our Texas State Rally which was supposed to be April 9-12 was postponed until September, and now even called off for then. So, not looking good. People who are full timing are having trouble finding parks that aren't closed. So, putting a hardship on many. So glad we have our home and property to hunker down in though no cases anywhere near here so life is pretty normal in our county right now though our church services in Dublin are suspended. Preacher broadcasting on radio and facebook. Governor has said no gatherings of more than 10 people. We are still going out to get groceries and feed for cattle. I carry my hand sanitizer and use it liberally plus stay away from people we dont know.
Matt (DH) has a bad right knee, saw orthopedic surgeon last week and they x rayed his knee, it is bone on bone so he needs it replaced but of course cant do it now due to moratorium on elective surgeries. He is on a list and waiting.

We are fine and feel very blessed. Hope everyone is OK and no one is stranded!

So sorry some will have to skip coming. So far this should be possible for us, we're checking out a few things yet. And we have to hope this stupid corona virus issue is over also. We have missed several also, the ones to the west just weren't possible.

I am disappointed that Heather, Brenda and Ruthann will not be able to attend our group get together this year.

It is so difficult to pick a place or date that works for everyone. All we can do is pick a place and date and hope we can get a good group.

Heather - I know this won't make you feel any better but I don't seem to be getting any notifications of activity in an of my teams. I just gave up and go check on them to see if there has been any activity.

I know Marianne & Pete are even further....but Alex & I feel we are just not interested in travelling that distance....
Flying & cost of a hotel room is out of the question for us financially.

Besides..... emoticon emoticon emoticon .....if I won't be seeing Brenda & Mike's big smile.....no sense trying to get there! emoticon emoticon emoticon

BTW.....I am not getting any notifications for any of the RV threads even though I subscribe every time I do go in them! emoticon

I have to apologize for not keeping up with what is going on here. No good reasons, just me.
I think I picked up on the dates of Aug 16 - 23. I'll talk to Darrell and see what the thoughts are on that. We do have our ND State Samboree the first week of Aug so that isn't a problem. The only other thing that may cause some issues is that my family has been throwing around the idea of a family reunion and that would probably be in Iowa. But nothings been settled on that either.

Of course I don't think we'd drive the motor home so we'd have to see what the lodging situation is too.

I think it would be fun, we haven't been to the cities for quite a few years.

Sounds like this will be the place. I would love to see your home and all the work that was done on it, Eileen.

I couldn't find anything about the Renaissance Faire. We would love to go with a group so we would definitely stay for that.

So what would the exact dates be 8/16-23rd?

Please let us know who can come so we can get a count. We have to start somewhere!

Eileen and Sharon,
This would be so much fun, and we could bring the RV with these dates.

Good catch, Sharon. The Weekends August 22 Ė October 4, 2020. So the first weekend would fit. It's only a couple miles from our place and we have never gone. There is major road construction to get there but the detour is well marked and not far out of the way.

I hope others will hop in and join us. We talked and decided to have a potluck at our house and would love to show it off! Lots and lots of room!!

I like the looks of the place. The week you mentioned Eileen works for us.

Marianne - I must admit we would want to go to the Renaissance Faire as well. I will pack our costumes!!

MN. State Fair begins 8/27 through 9/7. I am guessing the campground could be filled so the week before (the 3rd weekend, Sun the 16th through Sat. the 22nd) may work the best.

This is a link to what the campground looks like as well as the area around it. We can park 2 with doors facing or sides facing. The lower rate ones are paired.

Second or third week of August would be better for us because of travel time....

Last week of August works for us!

Twin cities interest me. I love the idea of being near MOA and casinos, lol.

Since weíre in CA practically any place will be a long drive, but this is our year for it! The Twin Cities area, North Dakota, and Wisconsin are all places we havenít been. My son is graduating from his MA program in mid- September, so our timing may be off because we have to be there. Anyone else like the idea of August?

Initially I thought we could fly if we didnít have enough time to take the RV, but with the health issues surrounding flying now, Iím not anxious to get Pete on a plane.

Please give us your suggestion here.

Also, are we talking the middle of Sept or a different date.

Let's talk and make some decisions!
