Hello from MacPack! The Christmas holidays are now behind us and the New Year has begun! I hope everyone had an opportunity to share the season with family and friends! The new year promises to be a fun-filled chance to get together with our American Coach friends and to also meet many new friends. Our chapter has been fortunate to welcome several new members during the year and we’re looking forward to getting together during 2019.

Sarah and I will be heading to Florida in February and will be returning to Grand Oaks RV Resort in Lady Lake, FL., so be sure and drop by if you’re in the area! We’re already busy scheduling several items on the checklist as we get ready to travel, one of which is getting magnet shades for the coach! They really make a difference on heat inside the motorhome. Also need to make a stop at Freightliner for our annual maintenance!

After Florida it’s off to Emerald Isle, NC. As you know, hurricane Florence interrupted our original plans for a spring rally on the North Carolina coast, but we’re excited to say that Doug and Nancy Fleming were able to find a beautiful campground for us. We hope everyone has had a chance to make their reservation at Trav-L-Park RV Resort on Emerald Isle, NC. This is a beautiful area on the coast and a five-star RV resort. Dates for the rally are April 24 to April 29. The resort was only able to hold 30 sites till Dec. 21, but I’m sure sites are still available so give them a call and be sure and let them know you are with MacPack.

Several of our members have already made their reservations for the National Rally in Texas, and we may try to caravan if there is enough interest. Stay tuned for more information!

As we begin a new traveling season we wish all safe travels! Be careful out there!
