My DW (Julie) and myself (Alex) attended our first TC rally hosted by Truck Camper Adventure (their first as well). My involvement in this rally is to scout out the Bradshaw Trail for the condition of the trail. This would be a after the Rally trail run in which 14 TC would end up transverse.

Here's a couple of video on Scouting the Bradshaw Trail.

Scouting Bradshaw Trail 2

We arrived at the Truck Camper Adventure rally point being held in the town of Quartzite at the Road Runner Wash 6 miles south of town just off SR95.

From Feb.7-9, 2020 Michael Smith and his wife Karen put on a great event with stories, round robins,raffle gifts and speakers talking on a variety of TC related subjects

There were 55 TC's that involved themselves in this first time event for Truck Camper Adventure, wonderful people came to share their stories.

Feb. 10, 2020 was the Bradshaw Trail run, 14 TC made this historic adventure. With premissiom from Michael Smith (Truck Camper Adventure) I'm posting his video of the Bradshaw Trail run video link.

Yah, I saw that AFTER it was over...

I was just up the dirt road there, Tyson Wash so that would have been fun.
I've set the general date for next year if they have another one..

Fun..

We attended this TC Rally, also our first, despite RV camping for 11 years.
Mike and Karen and Alex and Jeff and many others put together a very fun event! Thanks! We only wish we could have joined in on the Bradshaw trail, alas we are a bit challenged in the rear departure angle department...
Looking forward to next year!

Another TC rally is going happen about the same time next year and most likely a different close by trail will be picked.

The camper with the tag didn't do the trail run, in fact this tag design doesn't attach it self to the camper. You may see it this design being marketed soon.
