OCTOBER 6-15
Join our Six Wheeler Rolling along the Mississippi Fall Foliage Rally!

***Please share with those not on Facebook! I’m not sending out emails.***

This will be a great way to end the camping season, winding along the mighty Mississippi, decorated with fall foliage! Each daily roll will only be 1-2 hours. There will be plenty of time at our camp sites to relax and visit. Join us for part or all of the entire roll!

Everyone will need to make their own reservations as soon as possible. Links to COE reservation sites are included. COE campgrounds offer discounts (up to 50% savings) if you have an Interagency Access or similar pass. Pass ID number needs to be entered at the time reservations are made. No sites have been set aside at the Galena Campground yet. If you are not interested in visiting Galena the other option is the COE at Blanding Landing (both options listed below)

Additional suggested stops may be added if there is interest in stopping for lunch, etc. Communication during the rally will be via the Team Reach app to alert rollers of itinerary changes, times to meet, need to stop, etc.
