Default Roadtreking Winter Freezeout Adventure

OK you Roadtreking enthusiasts. Here's your challenge.

Mike Wendland posted this on Facebook. There are still openings.

"Mike Wendland For those who have registered for this event - we have a closed FB group set up where we will talk about and plan this event. That means you jeend to "Join" it to get all the info and sharing. It's at

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697339513886451/

I am getting really excited about this event! Bring on the snow! It's going to be a ball! And, yes, there's room for a few more."

This is it.

This non-Roadtreker is signed up and will be there.

I bet lots of those folks will want to see your ARV. Maybe some of what they see will filter back to RT HQ as "Can we have this also?" items.

Good luck & good times to you all.

Looking at the list of attendees I doubt many know I have an ARV. I'm not a member of the Roadtreking:The Group on Facebook like about 6,000 others and I don't see many, if any, of those names in Wincrasher's Class B Campervan group. MikeS47 with an ARV is signed up as well. So it is not all Roadtreks.

Other than the Wendlands, I don't know if there will be other EcoTreks there. It shouldn't matter because there are electrical hookups.

I just wanted to try some winter camping this year and it would be more fun with a group and I have been to Tahquamenon Falls numerous times. That and, I think, America's only brewpub right in a public state park.

Mike Wendland has had his current van for about a year, it is a CS Adventurous in the XL chassis...

How We Roll: Meet Our New Roadtrek CS Adventurous XLRoadtreking : The RV Lifestyle Blog

He has a 1600 amp hour lithium battery bank, a prototype not the current Ecotrek, and the engine generator. He gives very few details and managed to throw in a ding at the "armchair engineers" here in the Class B Forum...

I'll be interested to know what kind of reception you get from Mike and the EcoTrek kool-aid drinkers. Let us know if you get Mike on board and looking at the details of your rig.

As you said, there are a few - maybe a handful of persons from The Group in my little Facebook group. Just as well, as I don't need all their drama over there.

I expect the Advanced RV attendees will be welcomed just fine unless you spend too much time telling them that your vans are great and their vans are less than great. I expect in real life they are a little more civil than what you see online sometimes.

I noticed that the person who posted about the Motorhome Magazine Reader's Choice Awards on Ron's Facebook group yesterday also posted it on Roadtreking and it got deleted and she got booted from the group. Last I saw, she was challenging some of the fans who were questioning the accuracy of the awards and then it all disappeared...

And, I bet that ARV owners are a little more humble in real life, too.

I'll be looking forward to meeting Mike Wendland. In reading his blogs we seem to have some similar interests -- Snowshoeing, Apple computer products, Bourbon Trail Tour...
