SMB Rally for 2008?

I didn't see any past posts so I thought I would ask:

Anyone know where the rally is going to be this year that SMB West puts on? I want to plan some trips over the next several months and thought I might check it out.

Anyone been to one? Your thoughts?

I tried to go to the Utah rally and was informed that tickets has sold out in January of 2007. But then again us used owners might be persona-non-grata.

I've thought about going to the big rally, but it seems like too many people in one place at one time. I really prefer a smaller get together 10-20 vans for a nice social gathering.

Well the reason why I ask is that I am not going to do an Alaska trip like I had originally planned, so I want to start planning a few shorter trips. I am always up to meeting others on the road.

Too bad you can't make it to Alaska. It's a great trip. We've driven up twice and I'm ready to go again. The drive up is worth the time. Especially along the coast. Be sure to get a copy of the MilePost (http://www.themilepost.com/) to be your guide. Get the MilePost if you are only thinking about going!

We ran into you last year in Zion - October I believe.

This year I'm taking 3 weeks in early June - CA to IA and back to see family.

Sept in the Southwest Nat'l Parks. And maybe Oct if my wife doesn't go to Egypt.

Possibly we will run into you on the road. Certainly, we try to look up and talk to every SMB owner we see.

Mike and Dorothy

Mike,
I certainly remember meeting you and your wife in September in Zion. There were 3 SMB's, one from SMB West (mine), yours from Indiana and the Mercedes Sprinter from Texas. It was fun checking out each others rigs.

For me, Alaska will have to wait for another year or two.

Where will you be in CA. If you are up to it, maybe a few of us will meet up with you. I hope to plan 3-4 1 week trips in CA/NV over the next few months.

steve

I believe Alan said it's in Mexico where that train runs that hauls RV's on the flatcars, something they don't do anymore. Supposed to be the big brother to the Grand Canyon.

Yes that's the place he said. I thought that was what they were/are working on for (I think) the next run.
