Monday June 17th, 2019 (departure day)

Ambassador RV Resort Caldwell Idaho.

http://www.g7rvresorts.com/idaho/ambassador/

Please call the office at Ambassador RV Resort (888) 877-8307 between 8:00 am & 5:00 p.m. MST to make your reservations.

When making your reservations, please mention that you are a member of the WCR HDT group.

Ambassador has weekly and monthly rates if you wish to stay at the park longer.

32 sites have been set aside for our group.

Sites will be released back to the campground in May so please make your reservations early.

After you make your reservations please email me at chadheiser@att.net so I can get you on the attendees list.

 

There will be a nominal Rally Fee this year of $20.00 per rig payable at the rally to help cover some expenses.

Rally T-shirts will also be available for $20.00 each.

 

When you email me, let me know how many people will be in your party and their names (for name tags) and whether or not you would like T-shirts (and what sizes).

 

The agenda is open format so if you have any ideas or suggestions please pass them along.  This will be our first week long rally and I have some ideas for the extra time, but I am always open to suggestions.

I will put out an official agenda once I have it all nailed down.  If any of you would like to volunteer for a presentation, I am happy to have you.

We are looking forward to seeing lots of folks!

Thanks for doing this again Chad. Girls are in school a week longer this year so we will not be able to make it. If there is anything I can do to help with planning or supporting from afar though I would be happy too. This is a great event. 

Tom

That’s a bummer you won’t be able to make it.

Hi Chad,

     Have not signed up yet but as soon as I get a few minutes I will. Time to come to Idaho again and see the west coast folks. Are you going to bring Jen this year?

Brad

Excellent.  I look forward to seeing you guys again and yes, Jen will be there this year.

jenandjon, yes at Jackpot. At Cactus Pete's who also has a nice RV park, you can park in the parking area in front of the RV Park. We have used both the RV park and parking lot at times. Also, just north of Cactus Pete's is Barton's 93 Casino. The casino is on the west side of US 93. Directly across from Barton's on the east side of US 93 is a fairly large lot that Barton's let you park on. There probably won't be anybody in that lot because most folks don't know it is available and the sign permitting the parking has been faded for years. If dry parking, we usually use Barton's, much quieter and usually no one there.   Both dry lots are on the east side of US 93. Beware, there is a 25 MPH limit thru Jackpot, and the local police force have all the time in the world to enforce it. If coming from the north, you will "drop" down into Jackpot, "so whoa it down"!

Man, that looks nice.  Hoping we can make it in the next few years.

Well, After the ECR if you head south and west you can make your way up to Caldwell Idaho for the week long event.  Then leave and cross the upper US for your Vermont run.  Leaving Vermont cross into Canada and travel west across southern Canada until you're around the Sweetgrass Mt border crossing.  Head south to your Yellowstone adventure for Sept, finishing at the National in Oct.  It's just fuel and time.... 😄

Our Alaska trip may be cancelled this year....so we're going to try and make it again.  Chad puts on a first class event.  For anyone curious about the accommodations, there is a short YouTube clip from 2018 here:

2018 WCR

 

That would be great to have you guys again.  While it is too bad about yooour Alaska trip, I hope it works out for the WCR.

We would definitely be happpy to have you.  Once I retire, I plan to come out to the ECR and National rallies as welll.  I just need to get rid of this darn four letter word, w-o-r-k. ;)

Have to agree with you, it does look very nice!!!!!

Ambassador RV Resort is a very nice park, especially for our big rigs.  Their sights are a good 90’ long.  I can pull in with my HDT, 5er and side by side (doubled behind the 5er) all in line and still have room left in front and back of the rig.

Now that is some good planning.  I see a side business you can get going on. 😎

I am working on puttting together the schedule for the WCR.  I am loooking for any suggestions for possible presentations or volunteers who would like to give a presentation.  I know we have some very knowledgeable and talented HDT’ers out there.

One that I would like to see (but don’t have the expertise to do) would be a dummies guide to traveling to Alaska or something along those lines.  We have taken a cruise to Alaska and fell in love with the state.  We plan to make the trek once we retire and I figure it’s never too early to start planning.  😁

As many of you know, the WCR is not a typical rallly where all of your time is regimented.  We like to keep it as much of a social event as a learning event, so we keep plenty of time available for interacting and hanging out/getting to know one another.  Seminars are not just HDT specific.  We have had seminars on lots of topics over the years.  Anything that may be of interest to an RVer or HDTer is welcomed.  

Believe it or not, the Caldwell area is a burgeoning wine production area so I am even considering putting together a wine tour day and would love to get a volunteer to cooordinate this.  I personally don’t drink wine so I am probably not the best to put this together, but I will if necessary.  Even though I don’t drink wine, I do like checking out wineries.  I am pretty sure the campground has information on local wine tour companies so it shouldn’t be too difficult to do.

We will have a few more days to fill this year since we are going for a fulll week for the first time.  As a result, I am open to any and all suggestions.  Last year, the shooting outing was so popular that I am working on expanding that into a little bit of instruction in the morning and then actual shoooting in the afternoon as well.

Let me know what you think and what you would like to see.
