Full Timers Cooperative Rolling Rally 2021

MAY 31, 2021 - JUNE 26, 2021

COME TO ONE  OR COME TO ALL

(Each rally will also be listed separately on the calendar)

Join the Full Timers Chapter at every stop or meet us for just part of this June 2021 Cooperative Rolling Rally. We will travel along Colorado’s eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains and across the northwest corner of Nebraska before our last stop near Rapid City, South Dakota.

Cooperative rolling rallies give all attendees the chance to contribute to the success of each rally stop as hosts, co-hosts, activity leaders, etc. Some stops will have a volunteer host before the rally starts while others will have a temporary point of contact until volunteers step forward. If you are willing to host a stop on this Cooperative Rolling Rally, contact Donna Carmon, via email at fritored@gmail.com or text or call her at 405-209-5001.

We will start our trip in scenic LaVeta, Colorado and travel north with stops in Colorado Springs and Estes Park. Then we will angle across the northwest corner of Nebraska where we will stop in Historic Fort Robinson before our final stop in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

We will make five stops in 25 days/26 nights. We will visit historical state parks, two national parks and more, all while enjoying the magnificent scenery of the Rocky Mountains.

Sites are NOT reserved for the group and campgrounds and rates are subject to change depending on the impact COVID-19 has on selected campgrounds. You do not have to camp in the primary campgrounds to attend these rallies. Reservation information and other information is listed below, but attendees should ask for updates from the Rally Point of Contact before making reservations.

Due to the possible residual impact of COVID-19, please check with your Host, Donna Carmon, at fritored@gmail.com or 405-209-5001 before making any of your reservations.
