    looking for feedback on a Sept. 2016 rally in SD.

    Amy and I are considering hosting a rally Sept 21 thru 25 2016 at Rafter J Bar ahead of Trace and Terry's rally in Glendale UT.

    Couple of things to consider:

    It's about a 14 hour drive from Custer, SD to Glendale, UT. Would this be to long a drive in two days?

    The camp ground will not "hold" a block of sites for us so we would need to reserve them by this November. By doing this we can get a block but they would need to paid for when booked and there would be a no refund policy.

    The Rafter RV park is located in the heart of the Black Hills about 10 minutes from Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments.

    We were thinking this might be good scheduling for any rally jumpers heading west for the national rally in Las Vegas (Bernie you out there?)

    Please post any thoughts, feedback you have.

    Thanks.

    Re: looking for feedback on a Sept. 2016 rally in SD.

    Dave,
    I like your idea. Rafter J is a great park. However, I think 900 miles in 2 days is just too much for all but the hardiest of the Heartland group. (Google maps shows 893 miles from Hill City SD to Glendale UT)

    Most everyone I know prefers to drive about 250-300 miles per day.

    I would say 3 maybe 4 days between Rallies, would be a more reasonable expectation.

    Like maybe Sept 18 to 23rd, or so? (Our start date in Glendale Utah is Sept 27, 2016).

    Anybody else out there have any ideas?? Trace

    How about another one in Cody a couple of weeks before Trace's rally so we could take a scenic drive to Utah? Just thinking out loud here, haven't looked at a map.

    Amy and I were just talking about that last night. it's easy for us and Cody is a great place to visit as you already know Jay. Map quest puts it at 720 miles +/- and you could definitely head to Glendale through the park. Sept. Is one of the best times of the year to visit Yellowstone.

    If it doesn't pan out for a rally you and Stella can still book a spot a Tardiff's RV park.

    Haven't really thought too far ahead for the 2015 National Rally route we will take, but I'd really love to go through SD and Utah on our way. We'll be coming back from the Rally on the "southern route" so a trip through the Black Hills would be a real big plus for us. My Boss Lady has not been to Mount Rushmore nor the Black Hills and I'd like to go there with her. An extra rally stop in Cody and Utah would be a great way to get from Virginia to Las Vegas!!!

    Dave, we "might" be up for it, have to wait until closer to rally time. Seems like if we make plans too far in advance. For this rally, I had plans to get various things done, then the rain came & didn't leave. Had to install a sump pump in our crawl space yesterday which was a real pain! Got it done, now hopefully I'll get to finish up the odds & ends today & get packed to leave in the morning.

    We would be interested in coming up for that.

    We've been looking for an excuse to go back up that way!

    We stayed in Custer at the Big Pine's Campground just west of town when we were there two years ago . . .

    Great place with lots of shade and the people were awesome!

    Here are some shots . . .
