Tear Jerkers Arizona Spring Clean Gathering March 5~8 2015

Postby mkitchen » Mon Nov 10, 2014 2:53 pm

Time to shake out those CABIN FEVER BLUES and no better way than gathering together with a bunch of like minded folks in teardrop or vintage travel trailers. This will be our third shot at putting together a Tear Jerker event.So here is all the information needed to get prepared for the Spring Clean, 2015.

Date: March 5 through 8, 2015
Location: Lost Dutchman State Park, 6109 N Apache Trail, Apache Junction AZ
Directions: From 60, go north at Idaho Rd, which becomes Apache Trail and follow to the state park
Camp Fees: $17.00 per night and can be paid at the gate
Campground contact info: http://azstateparks.com/Parks/loDU/index.html

We will be at the group camp site. There are no individual plug-ins however there is power at the ramada if you need to charge any appliances, water is available at the ramada too. There is also newly built bathrooms with showers. We will have coffee for everyone in the mornings, a fire to take care of any early morning chill or evening coolness. Saturday will be a pot luck at 5:00 pm. I will be posting additional information as we get closer however if anyone has any questions please feel free to post up. As I said earlier, this is only our third organized event (and I use the term organized very loosely) and we welcome any suggestions or ideas.
Till then
Mikey

Hmmmmm, celebrate our 6th anniversary teardropping....that might just work! (Depending on the Mrs's schedule)

We're down the road from the campsite, but work won't let me get there before Friday evening - I imagine that would still be OK?

Just like a certain Motel chain, we will leave the light on for you. The pot luck is on Saturday so Friday night would do fine. Looking forward to seeing you.

Mikey, I'll be there. As I read this, this means that I don't need to reserve ahead of time?

Yes, it will be my first. I'll be spending part of the winter camping in AZ and I thought I'd meet other Tearjerker's while I was enjoying some warmth and no snow in the winter.

Hi Mike,
I would like to come the Spring Clean Gathering. This will probably be my "maiden voyage" as I can't seem to find any time to get away before. Anyway, where better to start than a campground full of knowledgeable people who can set me straight about what I need and how to proceed!! I won't be able to get there until Friday.....do I need to make reservations with the campground? Also, are dogs welcome?
Thanks so much, and I look forward to meeting you all in March!
Liz

You will not have any problems getting in on Friday. lots of folks with dogs, no problem there. There is a leash rule but that is something we see everywhere and there are lots of places to go for walks. I think the Spring Clean was our first meet up too. You are right in that there are lots of knowledgeable folks there.

I would like to join you. I live in Mesa and have a 5x9 CT that thinks it's a teardrop. Am I allowed to participate?

Even though it is a Tear Jerker event, we welcome all. I think that is what makes the gathering so much fun. It is great seeing what folks have done with their trailer. So come on out and don't be surprised if you have folks checking out what you have done.
See you there.

Although we are living in CA now, about 550 miles from Lost Dutchman, I am planning to drive over for the weekend. Looking forward to getting the "Teardrop Shipping Crate" back on the road again.

Cheers,
Mike

Well, it is finally getting close to spring clean time. I don't know about others but I am very ready for a gathering. Less than two weeks to go now and I can't wait.

I've been wandering around, anxiously anticipating the Spring Clean! I'll be back in the area in time.
