Hi everyone,

We realize that the Ontario Chapter rally is still a ways off and probably not on your mind especially since we are entering the Christmas season.

We have heard from many members who indicated they plan to attend the rally. We would like to gauge the interest of all members and get a sense of how many of you are planning to attend.

We would appreciate if you could post in this thread your intention to attend. Remember, this is not a commitment on your part but simply an expression of interest.

We hope that those members going south for the winter have arrived safely at their destination and are enjoying the warm temperatures. Here in Ontario, the colder weather has moved in with many areas getting a fair amount of snow already.

Thank you and hope to see you all at the rally.

Hello Bob,

Please count Alice and myself in for the MacGregor rally.

We also expect to have our tagalong brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Cathy Jansen, with us for the weekend. Of course many of the people I've met them at a couple of previous rallies.

We need to keep inviting them until we get them into a heartland product!

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

Sara and I are planning to attend both events.
We are back in Ottawa for Christmas and then off to Mission, TX where we will be embedded for three months. Get to play hockey three times a week.
Travelled in the fall to Boston and Cape Cod for two weeks. Just returned from three weeks down to Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, AL. Left the trailer in Fort Payne, AL at Will's Creek RV park. Owner operated park and part of the Passport America system, ie, $17/night. Will pick up trailer en-route to Texas. Would like to get over to Big Bend and Teralingua but hockey schedule will keep me close to Mission.

Hi from SW Florida! We've been working out some sort of plan for our 2013 travels. If all goes well we will be in the middle of a maritime tour when the rally takes place this year so we're going to have to pass on this years rally. Hopefully we'll be there next year.

We arrived home in Ontario, 10 days ago, after our winter stay in Arizona. We took approximately 2 weeks of travel making our way across the country, on our way home. We saw a lot more interesting countryside and enjoyed our trip home very much.

We are now looking forward to the rally season. It is good to see that so many people have signed up to attend the rally in McGregor.

Good job on the quarterly newsletter! Of course we are a bit biased as Jake the wonder dog was featured in the pet section!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in McGregor!

For those going on from the Ontario rally to Goshen, what route do you suggest?

We leave from near Ottawa Sunday morning, may make it to Wildwood to overnight before heading to the national rally in Goshen.

We're from North Gower, near Ottawa, and previously when we went directly to the Goshen rally from Ottawa, we took the route going through Sarnia. The distance is almost identical than going through Windsor, but the US crossing in Sarnia is a lot easier (much less traffic) than Windsor. The Mapquest link is: http://mapq.st/13k1kz6.

If you decide to go through Wildwood Resort, a group of us are leaving Monday to go to Goshen. Personally, we will likely take I75 after the Ambassador Bridge crossing to Ohio and then taking I90W/I80W (toll road) towards Chicago into Indiana (see Mapquest link: http://mapq.st/ZrXJ1f).

Hope this helps.


06-04-2013, 08:55 PM
Thanks for that Bob.

I came back from Indianapolis a couple of years back through Sarnia; virtually no wait at the border crossing.

I guess it depends what time we get away and how long I want to drive on the Sunday whether we make it to Wildwood or stop before or...

The route given by Mapquest is the same as Google maps and MS Streets and trips, so I guess that's the consensus.

Tim & Jo

06-11-2013, 10:39 PM
Yes, we just came through Sarnia with zero wait!
