Status of the January 30, Paso Robles, Winter Rally.
GREAT NEWS—- WE ALREADY HAVE TEN RIGS WITH RESERVATIONS FOR THE JAN 30 to FEB 4th PASO ROBLES ROADRUNNER RALLY!!!!
Some news—- 1) The Paso Robles RV Ranch has opened four additional sites. I’m sure they will give us more sites, should we need them. Please register with Tina Directly ASAP. Complete information is on the website; go to the Calendar of Club events > January 20, Rally. Frank and Carol Colligan visited the RV park for us recently and liked the look and feel of the grassy open spaces and site sizes plus the friendly staff. All good!!! ( family owned and operated)
2) WE will be in Paso ( and NEAR Cambria and The CA Elephant Seal breeding and birthing site) at the absolute best time of year. The visit to this beach and vista point is free and an amazing outing to view and marvel at one of nature’s unique spectacles. We’re researching the least busy days and times TO plan ( suggest) a carpool excursion and the adjacent hike/walk at the elephant seal rookery.
3) We’re also planning an afternoon picnic (bring a simple lunch) and we’ll arrange wine tasting or non alcoholic beverages, simple desert, at reserved picnic tables—— all at SCULPTERRA winery. Walk among amazing (huge) metal sculptures throughout the grounds, and enjoy the views.
4) If you want to come a day or two early or stay a day or two longer, please let Tina know to adjust your reservation. Weekend site fees are not higher and there is plenty to do in that area for sightseeing and mild weather for resting, reading, walking, etc.
More detailed information coming in January. I want to extend a personal invitation to all members and a special invite to new club members to attend this first 2022 Roadrunner Rally. Ed and I would LOVE to have many join us.

Update: January 14, ‘22— Paso Robles Roadrunner Rally: in Jan 30, out Feb 4th 2022
Paso Robles RV Ranch: 398 Exline Rd. Paso Robles, CA —-165 miles ( or so)
Some important reminders and some Rally highlights and ideas for fun…
Safety first—-we will comply with all Paso guidelines and do our best to find outside activities, adventures and social time that keeps us all safe. Please bring masks and your proof of vaccination for any businesses that may require them.
Please bring Cash for the rally fee ( $25 per person) and a blank check. I hope we can each pay the RV resort individually with a credit card but in the event I have to pay for all sites in a lump sum, we’ll each have to reimburse the club treasury. We get a special club rate of $64 (If we stay at over ten rigs—-currently 11 spots reserved. Otherwise $75)
WE arrive on a Sunday and depart of a Friday. However, Tina, the manager, assures me that early arrival or later departure would not be at a higher cost. So much to do in Paso area.
Please let me know if you can bring a dessert for our first night…three or four should do…easy, store bought, finger friendly.
WE will do a group social at about 5:00 pm each night ( likely outside around a fire pit or at the Phelps site—-) and if you have a VERY easy appetizer for one of the nights, bring it along as well as anything your like to drink ( alcohol or non).
Plans/Ideas for our time together:
I will prepare a Welcome dinner to be served at 6:00 pm on Jan 30th. I will assume everyone will attend unless you alert me differently. I am thinking of a barbecue ( chicken or pork), roasted veggies, a couple of vegetarian salads and rolls….with dessert from some of you. I’ll use the clubhouse for cooking and we may feel okay eating in, depending on size, distancing etc. Otherwise bundle up for outdoor dining. ( food allergies?)
Elephant seal viewing ( this is perfect timing for. Birthing and Breeding) At Piedras Blancas Rookery ( seven miles north of San Simeon on highway one). Free—-plenty of parking. Tuesday AM is one of the least busy times…there are viewing guidelines of course and a visitor’s center at 250 San Simeon RD. Suite 3B…. More on that at the dinner.
Paso Farmer’s market in open Tuesday night ( north side of the Town Square) and evidence of the region’s bounty. Fresh olive oil, anyone? Plus munch-ables are allowed in adjacent wine tasting rooms….just a thought. (Market also runs Saturday AM for those staying over)
Hiking in or near Paso Robles is a safe outdoor activity with great trails like the Salinas River Walk in Paso ( 2 miles accessible from Larry Moore park where there is parking) or the Black Hill Trail ( 2.5 miles in the Moro Bay State Park.) there is a small upper lot and a larger lot at the golf course clubhouse on Lower State Park Road if you covet a bit longer hike. One last suggestion if the Bluff Trail at the Fiscallini Ranch Preserve which sits along the famous cliffs of Cambria (ADA accessible).
5) Picnic in the afternoon sunshine (free picnic grounds at Sculptera Vineyards). I am thinking
Of a group meet up at the winery ( for those interested) on Wednesday or Thursday with a
Lunch-ables and drinks ( bring your own) and possibly chipping in for wine, if desired.
The Caseys highly recommended the art and sculpture garden…
6) Museum visits are certainly an idea including the small historical society/displays housed
In the Beautiful and historic Carnegie Library on the town square. Ed and I also really liked
Estrella Warbirds Museum with both military aircraft and an amazing antique car collection.
7) Fore!!! Golf Anyone? I’m suggestion a quick round At the River Oaks Golf Club,,, a unique executive course with six holes and three sets of tees for mixing and matching holes and for various length rounds starting at just six holes ( most are par three with water). Low cost, also a senior rate, starting at $11 for a six hole round. Carts available, Great outing for those working on their short game.
PS: If your companion is not a golfer, try out the River Oaks Hot Springs Spa right next door. ( I will do a bit more research as to the best day for a group…to be discussed.
8) Stroll through Paso’s Mission San Miguel Arcangel founded 1797 by the Franciscan Order and on the National Historic Landmark. It features much of the original building including a portion of a village and the mission Arcade.
Well, that’s it for this pre rally update…. Of course everything we do on these rallies is fun and also OPTIONAL for those who want to explore on their own or just read and rest after breakfast or even lunch at a winery or in town…this area is filled with world class wineries ( reservations, I would guess for all tastings given the pandemic and winery tours available) and some of them (we found and loved CASS vineyards and restaurant ) have great Lunch menus often with outdoor seating.
Of course there are Olive farms and other organic farms that do tours in the area and the downtown is a shopper’s paradise with antique malls, small boutique browsing, wine tasting rooms, great restaurants, and a fun art galleries featuring local and national artists. You can’t go wrong with a day in town, or a walk or dining in Cambria overlooking the Pacific.
Fingers crossed for great weather at this milder time of year in that area. Hopefully, you are all as excited and ED and I are for this first rally of the 2022 year. More great rallies already featured on the web site thanks to Mike Casey.
Let me know if you have any questions….. I look forward to seeing you Jan 30th at 5:00 for our group social hour before our welcome dinner.
PS: lawn games and prizes are (of course!) planned!!! No expertise required…coaching available.
