FCRV Travalong Directors
Jim & Barb Turner
The FCRV Travalong Program is a touring opportunity that is centered around Campvention. Thus far, the group has gathered prior to Campvention at a designated site set by the Travalong Directors, Jim & Barb Turner. The group tours that area before moving on to the next site. Distance to Campvention has dictated the stops and distance traveled. The length of the Travalong has been up to two weeks prior to Campvention.
The directors decide on the route, book campgrounds, and suggest interesting sites by providing a list of websites of ‘things to see and do’ along the route. The attendees make their own reservations at the designated campgrounds. The Travalongs are ‘drop-in/drop-out’. Members have the option of participating in all of the designated route or just part.
At each stop, the group will visit the local visitors center as it has been found that the center personnel will provide interesting sites that weren’t mentioned on websites. The group determines what they want to see. Most times the group will tour together, but sometimes interests vary, leading to visits to various sites. Info is shared each evening, especially if different sites were visited.
The 2019 Travalong has not been set yet, but it will likely follow Campvention 2019 in Hutchinson, Kansas heading on west.
The FCRV Travalong is a wonderful group activity that tends to bring back former attendees as well as brings in others who are looking for a planned activity centered around Campvention. All are welcome and encouraged to participate.
