March was derived from the Latin word Martius for Mars, the Roman god of war. Maybe the name explains the weather we usually have during the month: like one of those days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold and when its summer in the light and winter in the shade. And there is an earthquake! Although March is the name for the third month in today’s calendar, Martius was the name of the first month in the original Roman calendar.
The Time To Travel schedule will be restful this month before our campouts start in April. There will be a Winter Activity tour of the Amazon Fulfillment Center on March 14 and our regular business meeting March 28 at 3:00 at the Golden Corral. Helen Gilson and Janelle Stephenson, assistant Wagonmasters for April, will let us know the plans for the Oregon Trail Campout in Twin Falls. Be sure you let us know if you are coming to the meeting.
By now you should have your reservations made for our campouts. If not, make them today! Then please click on the ‘members only’ tab in the menu, click on ‘message forum’, then click on each camping site in turn. Scroll down to a blank rectangle and enter the number of your camping spot. Click ‘submit.’ Go to the next camping site. The assistant wagon masters need a head count for each event to plan our activities.
Watch for the State June Campout reservation form which will be out sometime this month. Remember registration is free for any RVer of Idaho member attending for the first time. Registration is also free for any Idahoan attending for the first time, even if they are not a member.
