Arizona TearJerkers 2017 Spring Clean Event, March 1-6,

Postby mkitchen » Wed Sep 21, 2016 7:50 pm

Well RETIREMENT has finally come and I have free time and am loving it. I can't think of a better way to enjoy some of that time than with my tear drop, trailer travelling friends. So with that in mind, I am inviting one and all to the Spring Clean Gathering. This will be our fifth Spring Clean and how the time has gone by. I look forward to this as much as I did our first one.

Date: March 1 through 6, 2017 (I have reserved the group camp from Wednesday, March 1 through Monday, March 6)
Location: Lost Dutchman State Park, 6109 N Apache Trail, Apache Junction AZ
Directions: From 60, go north at Idaho Rd, which becomes Apache Trail and follow to the state park
Camp Fees: $15.00 per night and can be paid at the gate (NOTE, price as of 9-21-16)
Campground contact info: http://azstateparks.com/Parks/loDU/index.html

A practice that I saw at Brian and Sandi's Farm Gathering in British Columbia (a great event, by the way) was the trailer tour. The group went around to each camper and the trailer owner introduced their trailer and what they liked about it, where they have been, etc. I would like to add to this tour, the idea of each person showing off something special that makes camping more of a joy for them. There will be more on this on a flyer that will be available to all attendees. Our tour will happen at 1:00 PM on Saturday.

We will be at the group camp site. There are no individual plug-ins however there is power at the ramada if you need to charge any appliances, water is available at the ramada too. There is also bathrooms with showers. We will have coffee for everyone in the mornings, a fire to take care of any early morning chill or evening coolness. Saturday will be a pot luck at 5:00 pm. I will be posting additional information as we get closer however if anyone has any questions please feel free to post up. As I said earlier, this is our fifth organized event (and I use the term organized very loosely) and we welcome any suggestions or ideas. Any questions can be directed to me or Melissa via a PM here. If you could let us know that you are coming, it would help in anticipating the amount of people we can expect. Thank you.
Till then

Oh boy! The week is finally here and the weather looks like it is going to be just right. Looking forward to seeing everybody and those early morning cups of coffee. Don't forget that we have a new activity this year with our trailer tour, where we get to walk around the park and everybody gets to introduce their camper. I will have a print out with the details for everyone when they arrive. It should be a lot of fun.
Also if anyone has access to firewood and room to bring it along, it would be great if you could share some with the group. Having a fire at the ramada for the morning coffee and the evenings would be great.

I just joined today and saw this. I live about 15 minutes from Lost Dutchman SP. I am just in the planning stages of an off road build. It would have been great to see some TD's and talk to some builders.

Maybe next time.

I was lazy and didn't get the camera out of the truck and none of the trailers but did get a few park shots with my phone.
