Muskoka Autumn Colours Rally - 2003 (Sept 24 - 29)
The difference between a Caravan and a Rally is that, at a Rally, you arrive (in this case at the Gravenhurst KOA), park your RV and enjoy the several days of the program, without moving the rig until the Rally ends.
Our Muskoka Autumn Colours Rally is certainly designed for enjoyment. Hosts Alex and Sharon Armstrong have put together a marvelous program to welcome you to their hometown:
- White-linen luncheon cruise in the famous Steam Powered Segwun on beautiful Lake Muskoka
- Coach Tour through Algonquin's Fall Colour Tapestry with stops at the Park Interpretation Centre, Logging Exhibit & Ranger Fire Tower (lunch included.)
- Shuttles for Muskoka's Autumn Studio Tour (arts & crafts galleries, lots of photo ops )
- Free day to "Do Your own Thing"
- Wind-up Roast Beef Banquet catered at the campground
Midnight Sun Adventure Caravan II - 2004
The Midnight Sun Adventure Caravan II is scheduled to run from July 1 - Aug 15, two weeks later than this year's trip. Starting at Dawson Creek in Northern BC, the caravan will be essentially the same as this year's with one change. We are reversing the order after Whitehorse. The 2004 edition of the Caravan will go north from Whitehorse to the Dempster highway and Dawson City. Then on to Chicken, Tok, Fairbanks, Denali National Park, Anchorage, Palmer, Tok again, Kluane, and back to Whitehorse. This change will put us in Inuvik at about the same time as this year's trip - mid July.
The program includes the White Pass and Yukon scenic train trip down the Chilkoot to Skagway, the MacKenzie Delta Tea and Bannock cruise, Diamond Tooth Gertie's Saloon, plus the Mt. McKinley/Denali tour. The Prince William Sound Tidal Glacier Cruise is also included among lots of other shows and events as well as 24 meals .
James Bay Power Caravan - 2004 (June 4 - 16)
Everyone's heard of Quebec Hydro's huge James Bay Power Project. How many have actually seen it? Well now's your chance - in your own RV. The 12-day Caravan will start in New Liskeard, Ontario and head into Quebec to Amos and on to Matagami where we'll pick up the "Baie James Highway" which pushes straight north some 500 km to Radisson more than mid-way up the James Bay coast.
The road is paved all the way north through muskeg birch and black spruce. There's a service centre with a no-frills campground half way up where we'll spend a night. From our campground in Radisson, we'll tour the several sites of the huge hydro project, including LG2. We'll also take a tour to Chissabi and cruise James Bay. A Native feast, courtesy of the Cree Indian Band, will cap off the final day in Radisson.
On the return trip south, we'll spend the last day of the caravan touring the area around Amos followed by the Wind-Up Banquet.
