Looks like I might just keep my US streak going - Nov 13th Big Bear, California hopefully.

I'm looking to the US possibly late on Foxy, but as I'm not planning anything in advance I'll be looking for something relatively last minute.

You've done a lot of the Mainly Marathons stuff, haven't you? Are those mainly "seven laps of a balancing lake/caravan park" type stuff?

Or do you reckon there's any chance of finding a different single or two lapper anywhere close to an airport (that isn't the weekend I mark the Maravan route)?

I've opened a space in my calendar to allow me to do Big Bear but no rushing to book anything.

Mainly events are generally speaking out & backs on loops of parks, lakes & indeed have run round a few US caravan parks.

really not sure what's on in the US as each state has different rules. Philadelphia is great & a single loop with inexpensive flights & a great & very underatted city that said it's usually around Thanksgiving which could be maravan weekend ? Philly has a good subway from the airport.

Interesting, thanks.

Maravan is the weekend before Thanksgiving usually (two weekends after Fireworks weekend for historic practical reasons) so I might be tempted to have a look.

Not doing anything though until either rules change for double-jabs or the USA moves out of amber for a while. I won't be so fortunate with travel insurance this time round...

Got something to say?
