Mac Pack – May/Jun

It’s hard to believe that winter is finally coming to an end.  Being in Arizona we have been fortunate to avoid the harsh wintery conditions the rest of the country has endured this year.  Even though the weather has been a bit wetter and cooler than normal, March was really nice with a 10 day stretch above 90 degrees.

We weren’t able to attend the full FMCA Rally in Chandler AZ, but we were able to spend a couple of days checking out the vendors and new coaches (not many American Coaches).  We also spent a day at the Good Sam Rally that preceded the FMCA rally- again checking out vendors and new coaches.

As I write this article we are beginning to pack up the coach and getting ready for the long 5-day trip home.  On the way, we’re planning to stop at the White Sands National Monument.  Hopefully we’ll be able to sled down the powdery white gypsum dunes.  We’ll get home in time to finish up and file our taxes and repack the coach for the trip to Sevierlle, TN for the MacPack Reunion Rally starting on April 18th.  We currently have 34 coaches registered for the Rally and Jerry Cohen has been busy putting together a great schedule of activities.

Since winter is over it’s time to start planning you trips for the remainder of the year.  MacPack will be hosting a week-long Niagara Falls Rally in Ridgeville, Ontario Canada.  Shirley Arndt is working on the details which will include a trip to the falls, a ride on the Maid of the Mist boat under the falls, a day at beautiful Niagara on the Lake.  This week is Wine Festival week in the area and there are approximately 40 wonderful wineries in the area all with gourmet restaurants.   Please check-out the “Upcoming Rally Details” section for more information on this exciting rally.
