RV Travel Guide

I received the following email. As stated, she did a search on Alaska and found our website page with the excellent 2007 Alaska rally information that Bob and Peggy Beers did.  I researched her and the guide that she wrote and it is a very good guide. I have added her guide to the rally write-up.

I thought it was nice to know we have others reading pages from our little website.

“Dear Editor,

My name is Janet and I’m a writer at Your RV Lifestyle. I was doing research on travel tips and just finished reading your wonderful post: http://www.nwtfc.com/rallies/rally-reports/alaska_2007_itinerar/

In that article, I noticed that you cited a solid post that I’ve read in the past: https://www.travelalaska.com/

I just finished writing a guide that is even more detailed, updated and comprehensive on 50 travel tips from my past 10 years of experience travelling to more than 100 countries around the world. It is over 7,000 words and packed with practical tips and advice. You can find it here: https://www.your-rv-lifestyle.com/travel-tips.html

If you like the guide we’d be humbled if you cited us in your article. Of course, we will also share your article with our 50k newsletter subscribers and followers across our social platforms. 

Either way, keep up the great work!


Trek Brochures and Quartzsite Rally Report

Dear Members:

I’ve updated the Trek Brochure page – hopefully making it easier and clearer to read the details on each year of Trek made. I’m giving you the link to the main About The Trek page as I hope you will spend some time looking at all the information available to you as a Trek owner.

About The Trek

Just a note – if you own a 1999 Trek and have the brochure – please contact me at webmaster@nwtfc.com.

The official count of Treks at the Quartzsite, AZ Rally was 54. Everyone who attended had a great time talking, eating and sharing information about their Trek. There were many NWTFC members in attendance. Read Bret’s Rally Report here:

96th FMCA National Convention Report

Al Zimmerman, National Director, submitted the following report on the 96th FMCA National Convention held in Indianapolis, Indiana on July 10-17, 2017.

A number of coaches from the Northwest congregated at the S&H Campground in Greenfield, IN on Friday, July 7.  This allowed some time for Indiana sightseeing and fellowship.  Shared meals included the heavy hors d’oeuvres potluck one evening and grilled Costco dogs for another meal.  On Monday, July 10, nine coaches caravanned to the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

A Northwest Area strategy session was held Monday afternoon.  The purpose was to discuss the issues that would be presented during the Governing Board meeting.  Kathie Balogh, National Vice President, represents FMCA NW on the Executive Board.  The Northwest Area was well-represented for the meetings.

The unofficial count of family coaches in attendance was 1,410 family coaches.
