    It's time to get a Rally going for this summer. I would like to try and get more people this year. So what ideas are out there? Candy put this up.

    Remember we need a larger campground that is reservable.

    From what I saw on the above link I think this campground would be great for the Rally. We missed out last year because we didn't reserve a site at Baker Lake and then when we came in on Thursday hoping for a FCFS site there were none available, nor could we find any open sites in other campgrounds nearby.

    So this year we would like to try again, and once we know the dates and a campground we'll make a reservation!

    Don't forget that the total solar eclipse is on August 21 and many Portal members from around the West have made reservations at Catfish Junction in eastern Oregon to see it. Some folks will be there for a few days before and after.

    Thanks, Tom! Yet one more additional Rally to consider. We'll do Calendar this week and see if we can make it work.

    Taj (The Taj We Haul) is at the dealer for the next couple of weeks for some minor warranty work and a couple of upgrades so we won't be camping for awhile. Leaves plenty of time to plan for upcoming trips.

    Hi guys, subscribing here.

    I have been thinking about making a road trip out to Kennewick to visit family and if the planets align, maybe this can workout for us depending on the dates. The kiddos start school around Aug 7 tho :(

    Any time for me is good. But we need to get people involved.
    We need to get the when and where from ideas from the members.
    Let's go folks, the clock is ticking away
