Rally

Here's the flyer for a rally in northern Indiana in the fall. It's for everyone, not just skoolies. It should be well attended. See website for more details.

I was interested in this but work got busy.. is it a rally where you could driver in and out... ie me being someone who doesnt sleep in the bus.. id keep it in mind for next year.. id need to be able to drive in and out...



evansville 2017 was different since those of us that had seated busses could just walk to hotels.. this wasnt in an area where thats possible..


I need to get back to going out more.. my busses are parked wayyyy too much these days

Christopher,
I don't see why you couldn't drive in and out each day. There were buses coming and going. We were literally in the back yard of two places to stay.



Should be even bigger and better next year. The campfire never went out all weekend, there was a live band Sat evening, potluck supper, coffee and doughnuts every morning. There should be more vintage campers and van people there next year as the word gets out.
