Even though it hardly got started this year, the camping season is winding to an end. Usually, by this time of the year, we have made most of our travel plans for the following year. Hosting Boot Camp and Trailerfest Rallies and attending other rallies and shows requires us to commit to a schedule a year out. This past year our best-made plans had to be changed. Like you, current affairs have made it difficult at best to plan ahead.
We are choosing to remain optimistic and plan our events for next year. The best-case scenario is that the nation will continue to return to normal. The worst-case is we will continue to make adjustments to our events to keep the participants physically safe while providing an environment that feeds their mental health.
Each February, we take part in the trailer show at Modernism Week in Palm Springs. The weather in Palm Springs that time of year has always been pleasant, and it is our “start of the rally season.” At this time, we are still unsure if this event will take place. (We will post updates on www.periodevents.com.) The Boot Camp Learning Experience is the first weekend in March, and soon after that, we are hosting the Glamperfest rally. Those events are planned, and barring any backsliding of health guidelines, we can make them work.
We hope that you will join us in planning and supporting vintage trailer rallies. Campouts, where you are outdoors and following current healthcare guidelines, are generally considered to be safe. One thing that is for sure is that being with friends is good for the soul.
As you make plans for next year, consider the following:
- Your personal health condition. Are you in a high-risk category? If you are ill, do not go!
- The events cancellation policies. Will you receive a full or partial refund if you cancel or if the event is canceled?
- Site/event safety precautions. At our events, we inform and enforce the current health safety requirements.
- Are you comfortable with the risk? Don’t subject yourself or others to additional anxiety.
If you aren’t ready to assimilate, that’s ok. If you go, respect others’ space, and enjoy the time you can share with friends.
We hope to see you camping in 2021
Paul and Caroline Lacitinola
