Hello from Calgary, Alberta

Hello fellow Forest River enthusiasts!

My wife and I purchased a Rockwood 8288 WS last summer and absolutely love it! We get out of town every chance we get as summer is so short here in the Great White North.

Happy camping everyone!

Welcome From Hot & Humid Huntsville, Alabama!

Congrats on your Rockwood - perhaps we will meet you one day - we will be heading up to Alaska in 2018 and will be spending 4 days in Calgary in Mid May!

Thanks Bob!

Mid May !? Please ensure you bring everything you might need for that time of year in this part of the country.

Let's see... what would include: hip waders (for the possible flooding), parka and snow boots (for the snow) and Bermuda shorts (for the heat) - there, I think that should cover it

Whereabouts are you guys planning on camping when you come to Calgary?

Welcome to the Hooper family from Puget Sound, WA

The Lee family extends a hearty welcome to the Hooper family. We reached 92F (33C) here a few days ago. Today it's a mere 59F (15C). We're hoping to make it there for your Calgary Stampede one July. Of all the possible sports, rodeo is among our favorites. Enjoy the forums...there's good info here!
