    You’re Gonna Fall in Love with

    Old Cape Cod

    September 23rd to 29th, 2018


    Arrive at your campsite then let’s go to the Wellfleet Drive-In for the evening. When is the last time you did that?  This is one of the last Drive-Ins in existence in New England. Heck, at our ages we might even watch the movies this time. 


    Private tour of Wellfleet, MA and parts of the Cape Cod National Seashore by Chet Lay. Chet is a WWII naval history buff. 


    Nantucket; The Grey Lady. We will take an early morning ferry to the island. Nantucket has a great cobblestone downtown with loads of shops, galleries and restaurants plus the internationally acclaimed Whaling Museum. 

    We will then sail on an exact replica of an 1812 Man of War, the 122’ square topsail schooner the Lynx. This is a hands on sailing experience so get ready to hoist up the sails, see how the mainsail sets. This is an OPTIONAL trip but it promises to be an exciting adventure on a majestic sailing vessel. 


    September 24th at 1 to 4 pm. Lynx will pick you up at the town Dock 34 Washington St. Bring food and drinks. Dress for summer & fall.

    Tickets are $65.00 each. For tickets go to Let them know you are part of the Vintage Birds group. 


    Let’s go to Provincetown. It’s a self guided tour but you’ll find a days worth of things to do. Great art studios and galleries, restaurants, entertainment, beaches, Art’s Dune Rides or even a Whale Watch, and of course the Cape Cod National Seashore if you like. After a long day in Provincetown we will have a clam bake on the beach right next to the Highland Light House about a half mile away from our campground. 


    Trip to Heritage Plantation and Museum. The setting is on the private Cape Cod estate of the drug magnate Eli Lilly. The magnificent gardens are the largest in southern New England with beautiful walks and a free trolley available, a historic carousel, and this year’s special event is a display of 20 historic Indianapolis 500 racers. See:


    OK. A free day to rest or explore on your own after a wonderful week of sightseeing on Cape Cod, or go to Hyannis Port, Martha’s Vineyard, Woods Hole Oceanographic, Plymouth,  Boston, so many places, so little time. 


    Off to Williamsburg for the Vintage Birds Chapter Rally

    in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia October 1-6, 2018

    see: for more details

    We have reserved 30 spaces. Two campgrounds are involved within a couple of hundred yards from each other walking distance or about one mile apart if driving. Perhaps a little inconvenient but I don’t know anywhere else on the Cape where we could park 30+ Blue Bird coaches all near one another.  They are the North Truro campground and Horton’s campground. North Truro Campground Sites are 30 Amp full hookup. (Google Earth them to see how close they are). 

    The campground manager will make site assignments based upon your coach’s length. The sites are sand/gravel with a mixed bag of some with 50 amp, some with 30 amp only, some with and without sewer hookup. As far as the 50 or 30 amp electricity, this is late September so you won’t need all three air conditioners running all day long. It’s usually becoming cool, and we will be lucky if the Aqua Hots aren’t coming on during the night. For those without a sewer connection, the campground will proved you with free pump out service. Sites will be provided on a first come basis @ $50.00/day for a 50 amp site and $40.00/day for a 30 amp site.

    Our contact’s name is James. Inform him that you are part of the Cape Cod Vintage Birds group. Remember to tell him the length of your coach so he can assign a proper spot.

    Make our Club Grow Again

    I hope this finds everyone well and in great spirits.
    Betty and I will be hosting the fall rally, RITV, for the Blue Bird Family of Friends in Sevierville, Tennessee.  We will be staying at the Riverside RV Park and Resort. 
    We have attempted to schedule our rally to prevent conflict with the Vintage Birds rally and a few days prior to the WOG rally.
    Our dates are October 9th thru 13th, which means we will check in on the 9th and depart on the morning of the 14th.  Please make your reservations early as the reservations are first come, first serve basis.  The staff will attempt to keep our group as close together as possible (no guarantee).  
    We will be sending out, at a later date, a schedule of planned activities.
    There will be no fixed costs, only the cost of your RV Park reservations.  Meals will be provided to members and their guests. Guest should have their own motorhomes.
    Our club has maintained membership as of recent years, but could benefit from additional members/growth.
    We would like to challenge each member of the Family of Friends to invite a guest to the Rally. 
    Please secure your reservations early.  This is an extremely busy season, as it is peak "leaf peeping" season and campers typically flood to this area.  I would strongly recommend your reservations be placed by the middle of May.  This will also assist us in planning for catering and other scheduled events.
    Please know that Betty and I are honored and feel blessed to be a part of this wonderful Family of Friends. Our intent is to get to know everyone on a personal basis, as well as to contribute and help to make our group the very best it can be.
    With all of this, please make plans and honor us with your presence at Riverside RV Park and Resort October 9th - 13th and help make our club grow again!

     WOG Pine Mountain rally Oct 2018

    It's time to start planning for our annual WOG 2018 rally in Pine Mountain,GA
    The dates for the 2018 rally are October 17th-21st
    Pine Mountain RVC will honor the WOG rally rates before and after the official rally dates.  Be advised that PM is having a vintage rally the week before our rally so early arrivals may not be available.
    PM also has yurts and there are hotels in the area for visitors without coaches.
    There are no rally fees or sign up other than your campsite fees. 

    What we have agreed on is Full payment by the 15th of August with no refunds after that date. The only thing you will need to do is contact Pine Mountain in August 2018 and pay for your site in full. Any sites that have not made full payment by August 15th 2018 will be canceled, deposit returned and the site made available to the next person requesting a campsite.

    Pine Mountain has asked us to not call and make your full payment to them until August 1st, 2018

    Site reservations for the next year will be the same, some type of deposit with full payment by 60 days out.

    Mark your calendars and join us for this growing event.

    Heres a copy of the rally rules

    WOG Rally 2018: October 17th 2018 through October 21nd 2018 
    *In order to retain an existing site for 2018 ...registration will be open to retain current site until Friday, 10/20/2017 @ 5:00 PM. Current site means you physically occupied that site during the official rally days. Any cancellations will lose the right to retain site. 
    *After 5:00PM 10/20/2017, all remaining sites are "first come, first serve" for this year's attendee's. This opportunity will be offered through Sunday 10/22 at 5:00 PM. After Sunday, all remaining sites will be open to call-in registration on Monday, 10/23 at 9:00 AM. 
    *The 2018 rates for the rally will be determined 
    *Once a concrete site is registered that guest cannot change sites. There are too many of us for both the hosts and the CG to keep track of changing sites. If anyone has concerns with this then please contact one of the rally hosts and not the CG. The CG cannot make exceptions, as this is part of the agreed rally procedures with WOG. 
    *Requests for site changes will be handled in order from the “move waiting list”.
    (if you want to move from the shade to the concrete, get your name on the move list) 

    Thats the rules kids,and remember the rally hosts and helpers are attending the rally to have a good time,not to by the park police.
    WE don't want to spend our rally time being kindergarten cops!

    So,to all of you that had reserved spots last year that did not attend WOG 2017 you will not have last years spot.
    Its the rule,it applies to me and to John F and to everybody else.
    Don't call the park about your abandoned site,don't call Kip,and for sure don't call me!

    Tell them Blue Birds

    We would like to invite everyone to this event. Food fun friends and lots of sites to see. The Natchez Mardi Gras parade was excellent last year and we are working on getting a few birds in the parade!

    So far the rally has doubled in participation since its inception. This is a great gathering with a pot luck almost every night. We celebrate Valentines day and get to attend a Mardi Gras parade across the river in Natchez Miss. We usually take a little road trip to someplace great to eat and watch the barges and boats cruise down the river at almost eye level. I think most that come make reservations for the entire week but feel free to come and stay as long as you like. When you call to make reservations just tell em I'm Coming in Feb with the Bayou Blue Birds for the Love Birds on the Mississippi Rally. I hope to see you there !!

Sunday afternoon is the parade and we are welcome to be in it with our Birds.

    2019 Shipshewana Not So Mini Rally

    We are planning another Shipshewana mini Rally beginning Wednesday June 5, 2019 until Sunday June 9, 2019 in Shipshewana Indiana. The Rally Location will once again be the Shipshewana North Campground and Cabins (wanabees note, there are a few cabins available here). The website for the campground is 

    and the phone number is (260) 768-7770. Ask for Uma or Sam and tell them you are with the Bluebird Group. You can also drop my name if need be. 


    This is an older campground with mostly 30 amp sites, but a few 50 Amp pull through sites are available. Hopefully we have planned it early enough that we won’t need much air conditioning. We really like this campground as it is quiet and has an ice cream store right on the site. They really like us too.

    What do we do at this rally you ask? We plan nothing except one event that will likely involve a carry in dinner. Once again there will be a night at Rowland and Joanne’s Arcade, and maybe a dinner or 2 out. We don’t have awards, and we don’t plan tech sessions. We plan nothing because this is the Rally where the Boys go shopping. You read it right, there are several, many, a bunch of surplus stores within striking distance, and we come back with car fulls of RV trinkets. Some spend thousands, others spend some. The girls, if they trust us to be alone with credit cards, go to town with their own credit cards and shop in all of the quaint little Amish shops. 

    Shipshewana also has a huge flea market every week on Tuesday and Wednesday. You can google that to get the details if you are interested. You may have to come early to go there, but don’t spend all of your money there because there are other, better things to buy. 

    This location offers other services. 

    National RV Refrigeration. Many ‘Bird owners can’t say enough about Leon. Each year Leon works on several Bluebirds. He’s the go to guy for refrigerator problems as several Woggers can attest. His price is more than fair, he does a really good job, and he’s right next door to the campground. He does air conditioners too. His website is If you have a need here, call Leon for an appointment and to make sure he has enough time to get what you need.

    Stuarts Service in Elkhart is an authorized HWH repair facility. The website is You really need to call ahead here for an appointment as it seems they have limited hours. The phone number is on the website.

    Ramco Mirrors is close by in Elkhart, and bird mirrors have been rebuilt here.

    Mr. Wrench Service and Repair 260-768-4216 is a Powertech Service Center

    There are also lots of other RV related manufacturers around the Elkhart area and this is only a half hour away. Lambright’s for furniture is a popular spot, and Bradd and Hall is also nearby. 

    Check the display ad section of your FMCA magazine for information.

    Looking forward to seeing you there !!!

    Red River Rally, New Mexico

    October 2-6,2019

    Road Runner RV Resort

    1371 E Main St.

    Red River, NM 87558


    Arrive at Road Runner campgrounds in Red River, NM on Wednesday October 2, 2019.

    Thursday, Friday and Saturday will have planned activities to be determined and finalized at later date, but most likely Thursday night will be open with Friday and Saturday nights being either a catered or pot luck dinner for one night each. 

    It is Octoberfest weekend in Red River during our rally with days being open for attending whatever events are happening. It is my intention to plan on some sort of morning coffee/breakfasts on Thursday-Sunday morning, day of departure. 

    Keeping in mind that the Albuquerque Balloon Fest will be October 5-13, 2019. It is a must see for anyone who has never seen 500, or more, very colorful hot air balloons ascend virtually simultaneously . It is the ideal time, if you have never been in a balloon, to make advance plans to take an early morning ride.  I urge everyone to make very early plans for the Albuquerque as space for hookups is extremely limited. They will not work with a group for reserving spaces, so everyone is on their own after departing Red River.  

    Reservations open for the 2019 Albuquerque Balloon Fest on October 23, 2018.  

    See for more information. 

    Stops from Red River to Albuquerque should include at least a day in Taos (50 miles) and a day in Santa Fe (50 more miles) . It is an additional 50 miles to Albuquerque and Balloon Fiesta Park. See for more information.

    There will be ample time during the rally for off road 4 wheel Jeep trips or Jeep rentals, hiking, biking, trout fishing in the river or several lakes around the area, on your own.

    However, everyone should keep in mind the altitude is 8,500 feet and nights are usually at or near freezing during that time of year.

    More firm details to follow in Spring, 2019 .
