Come share in the adventure of traveling through some of the most spectacular scenery in theworld, from the summit on Trailridge Road, to the Beauty of the Garden of the Gods, to the bottom of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, to the Teton Mountains and the geysers of Yellowstone. Be prepared for vistas that will take your breath away, literally. We’ll travel at some of the highest  elevations possible in North America. Stops in order are Estes Park, Manitou Springs, Cimarron, Grand Junction, Dinosaur NM, Flaming Gorge, Jackson Hole and Yellowstone NP

Because of the time of year we could possibly run into snow at any location throughout the caravan with evening temperatures possibly in the lower 30’s. The snow usually doesn’t stick around long since daytime temperatures typically range in the 60’s to 70’s. We are attempting to find campgrounds with full service hookups or at minimum 30 Amp electrical services due to the cold evenings. However, we are planning two (2) days of dry camping close to the Dinosaur National Monument, one of the warmer locations. Good vehicle/trailer maintenance and appropriate accessories will be important due to our planned mountain traversing routes and high elevation camp sites
The route will require driving long distances with steep mountainous grades, many switchbacks and high altitudes. Some roads have no guardrails. Your familiarity with your rig and your ability to control it under these driving conditions is critical. This caravan should not be the place to learn. Campgrounds will range in altitudes from 6000 ft. to close to 8,000 ft. in elevation and with mountain passes and self guided auto tours as high as 12,000 ft. ANYONE with health issues affected by high altitude should think twice and check with their health care provider before joining this caravan. In order to gain the most from this caravan, hiking some distances (one to three miles round trip) may be required. If we haven’t scared you off, come join us in the beautiful Rocky Mountains for a great adventure in Spring 2018.
This caravan will end at Yellowstone on Sat June 16, 2018 with sufficient time for those who would like to extend their travel to attend the WBCCI International Rally at Salem, OR.

We intend to be in NS for 11 days and we will see everything and continue to eat too!  A short trip across to Prince Edward Island on a ferry and you will think you’re in Heaven.

Introducing a New Caravan along the Old River Road, 1,400 miles from Duluth MN to New Orleans LA, from the weekend after Labor Day to Columbus Day.  To be exact: September 8th to October 8th, 2018, so save the date.  From the colorful Northern Fall Foliage to the Deep South, this is a spectacular journey with the mighty Mississippi at your side and music exploration on your mind.  The Caravan starts in Duluth MN, where the iconic singer-songwriter, musician, author, artist and recipient of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature Bob Dylan was born.  We tour all Bob Dylan sites of significance in Duluth as well as in Hibbing MN, where he grew up.  His 1965 album “Highway 61 Revisited” inspired this Caravan, as this once major American highway still connects us to southern places known for their musical heritage.  Next are the Twin Cities, where the multi-talented recording artist Prince, who passed away in 2016, resided.  We tour his extraordinary private estate and production complex just out-side of Minneapolis.  A Prairie Home Companion of Garrison Keillor fame, but now with Chris Thile, is also on our agenda in St. Paul.  Going South on 61, Memphis TN is a music explorer’s delight: Elvis Presley’s Graceland, Beale Street with Jerry Lee Lewis Honky Tonk Café, Sun Records where Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash cut their first record, Stax Studios with Otis Redding and the birth of Soul Music.  We see it all, and much more.  Crossing the state line to Mississippi, 61 turns into the Blues Highway.  This stretch is an education of the Mississippi Delta Blues and the rich history of this unique art form.  We visit the BB King Museum and Blues Museums featuring legends as well as Morgan Freeman’s Ground Zero Blues Club.  We even visit a Grammy Museum dedicated to the Blues in the middle of nowhere.  Heading South, Louisiana has its own music traditions.  Our final destination is New Orleans LA, the birthplace of Jazz: Dixieland, Louis Armstrong, French Quarter, Fats Domino, etc.  The Big Easy is this Caravan’s Grand Finale.  If you got the rhythm, this Caravan is for you!

This Caravan is primarily for lovers of modern American music.  Although we include a few non-musical bonus options, like a Greyhound Bus Museum, or a Red Wing Shoe Museum, or a John Deere or Mark Twain, or a Coca-Cola Museum where the first Coke was bottled.  Expect waterfront campgrounds, if possible.  Really, two wire-haired dachshunds are organizing this Caravan. This means “Highway 61 Revisited” is pet-friendly.

Dust off your tri-corner hat and mob cap and join us as we travel back in time to where the seeds of the American Revolution were planted and bore fruit. We will begin in Boston and see the Old State House where fiery debates occurred, walk where the Boston Massacre erupted, take part in reenacting the Boston Tea Party(prepare to heave ho some British tea into the Boston Harbor) and hear ranger talks on the Battle of Bunker Hill; we’ll also visit other historic landmarks such as Faneuil Hall aka “The Cradle of Liberty”, the Old North Church, Paul Revere’s house and the USS Constitution, “Old  Ironsides”. From there we travel to Minute Man National Historical Park and follow the day (April 19, 1775) that marked the beginning of the war to independence from first blood on Lexington Green to the “shot heard round the world at North Bridge in Concord.  Then we travel to New York visiting Fort Stanwix National Monument in Rome, Oriskany Battlefield in Oriskany, and Fort Ticonderoga where Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold (before he turned traitor) led the “Green Mountain Boys” in an easy victory over British forces. Saratoga National Historical Park where a decisive American victory convinced the French to support the fledging nation also rates a visit as does the Bennington Battlefield in New York as well as Vermont. We will charter a bus to West Point for a private tour and lunch at the Officers’ Club followed by a visit to the New Windsor Cantonment, General Henry Knox’s Headquarters, and an optional visit to the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor. We will explore General Washington’s Headquarters at Newburgh then enjoy a tour-guided bus trip into New York City where some sites are now sky scrapers but others are alive and well such as FederalHall and Fraunces Tavern and Museum where we’ll have lunch. New Jersey is next with tours at Fort Lee, Morristown National Historic Park, Washington Crossing State Park (and Washington Crossing on the PA side), Monmouth Battlefield State Park, Princeton Battlefield State Park and Old Barracks Museum in Trenton. Then into Pennsylvania to Valley Forge National Historical Park in King of Prussia and Brandywine Battlefield Museum in Chadds Ford. The City Of Brotherly Love we’ll see via charter bus taking into Independence National Historical Park for park ranger talks and tours of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell Center, the new American Revolution Museum, and dining at historic City Tavern. Our final destination will be in Virginia at Washington’s beloved estate, Mount Vernon for a VIP tour and our final banquet.

If you love seafood and want to explore the historic southeast coast of the United States, this is the caravan for you.  We’ll visit an historic US Lifesaving Service Station (predecessor to the U.S. Coast  Guard)  in Delaware, eat seafood, spend a day at the Chincoteague Oyster Festival in Virginia, visit countless museums, lighthouses and beaches, eat seafood and see the sights in the historic southeast.  Did we mention that we’re going to eat seafood?    Actually this caravan is about a lot more than eating seafood.  You’ll be immersed in the history, culture and beauty of the Old South and see many attractions that are missed by the average tourist, including Morning Colors and graduation ceremonies at the US Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island.

  The caravan will travel about five weeks starting at the Delaware Seashore State Park (south of Rehoboth Beach) and traveling through coastal Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and ending at the Georgia Sea Islands.  The kitty fee, which hasn’t increased since 2012 includes campgrounds, most with full hookups, many meals, boat, carriage and bus tours, museum admissions and much more!
