Tumbleweeds: Mark your calendar

The annual planning and election meeting will be held at noon on Saturday, November 7th at the KOA Meridian. If you have a suggestion for lunch, let me know. 

We'll be planning the campouts for 2021 and electing officers for the upcoming year and maybe deciding if the Tumbleweeds are staying with Good Sam Club. 

I'll send out a reminder a couple weeks ahead along with a calendar of possible camping dates so we can come prepared to plan our campouts.

So mark your calendars for this very special meeting of the Tumbleweeds. 

Let me know if you have questions. 

Thanks, Rita 🤗

Tumbleweeds -- next campout

Many thanks to everyone who joined us at Three Island Crossing this past weekend. A good time was had by all ... despite the flies. The weather turned out lovely and of course, the food was great! And the campfire even better!!! 😊

Next campout is October 2nd-4th at Copperfield Campground in Hells Canyon. Looks like there are several sites available so come join us. And bring your friends and neighbors!

The wagonmasters are David & Julie so we should be hearing from them soon on the plans for this campout. I think Roy & Rosemary are putting together an ATV/UTV trip so I'm guessing we'll hear from them too. 

Let me know if you have any questions. I'm here to help!

Happy Camping,
Rita 😎

Come one, come all to the September campout!

Gooooooooooooooood morning, campers! Are we ready for a camping trip next weekend?

PLEASE RSVP ASAP if you are attending in order to get an accurate headcount. Thank you!
  • Campout: September 11-13, Three Island Crossing, Glenns Ferry, ID
  • Appetizers on Friday, 6 PM at Site #67
  • Dinner on Saturday, 6 PM at Site #67
  • Wagonmasters: Jim & Rita, Site #67, Trailside Lower 

Normally this is a joint campout with the High Desert Travelers out of Mountain Home, but they are not gathering this year so it looks like it will be just Tumbleweeds and a few friends. Mary Ann and her hubby from High Desert Travelers will be joining us and Jim & I have some friends coming too, but we are not expecting the gathering we normally have. 🙁

Therefore, I need a headcount from Tumbleweeds on how many WILL be attending in order to provide enough food. Jim & I will be contributing beef brisket and mashed potatoes for Saturday night so we'll need sides to complement. 

The pavilion is closed (but available for rental at $50 per night) so we thought we'd save some money and just meet at our Site #67 since there won't be many of us this year. Don't forget tables and chairs. 

As of today, it looks like there is one site available in the Trailside Lower if anyone has not made their reservation yet. Also, it looks like there is one cabin also available. 

Weather is looking good -- low 90s during the day; mid 50s at night. Good camping weather. 

Let me know if you have any questions. And please let me know ASAP if you are attending. Thanks for your help!

Looking forward to seeing everyone for a weekend of rest and relaxation. 

Happy Camping and Safe Travels,
