This Chapter shall be authorized to function as a regional group covering the Western portion of the United States.

 

The purpose of the Chapter is:

a. To promote the aims and objectives of F.M.C.A., Inc., as set forth in the Constitution and Bylaws of said association.

What we do :

We own, operate and even live full time in converted Motor Coaches manufactured by General Motors originally designed for over the road transit. As you visit our pages you can hopefully get a better understanding of these  unique vehicles. Throughout the year WGM members gather in the form of rallys, Get togethers, road trips and  generally form a family of "Bus-Nuts". Rallys are held in all manner of locations and allow us to talk about our coaches, swap stories, tell tall tales and eat some of the best foods that our familys can offer. In general, we just have daggum fun. Throughout the pages here you can see some of the places we have been and learn a bit about us.

Enjoy Your Visit!

This month, April 25-27, if you’re so inclined, you are welcome to give a High Plains “howdy” to High Plains Drifters chapter members at their first rally of the season in Fort Collins, Colorado.

These FMCA members are “home on the range” in Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska.

Associate Editor, Family Motor Coaching magazine

Members of FMCA's High Plaines Drifters chapter celebrated the group's 20th anniversary in 2013.April 2014

This month, April 25-27, if you’re so inclined, you are welcome to give a High Plains “howdy” to High Plains Drifters chapter members at their first rally of the season in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Chapter vice president John Kilburn said they’ll be at the Fort Collins/Lakeside KOA, and FMCA members are welcome to come check out the group.

In fact, not long ago he was a newbie, so he can show you the ropes.

“The first night we showed up for a rally we didn’t know anybody,” John said, referring to himself and his wife, Diann. “We came in there total strangers, but they jumped up to greet us and made us feel right at home.”

The High Plains Drifters’ scope is generally southeast Wyoming, northeast Colorado, and the panhandle of Nebraska. But all FMCA members are welcome. From April through October, the chapter meets on the fourth weekend of the month, from Friday through Sunday.

Friday typically includes a potluck, and Saturday morning the group gathers for a chapter business meeting. After that, John said, “Somebody might have a roundtable-type discussion for the guys to talk about issues with motorhomes every now and then. Most Saturdays you’re on your own for lunch, and then Saturday night we have a dinner that’s catered or put on by the hosts.”

Socializing and playing table games also are popular activities at rallies. And, over its 20-year history, the chapter has enjoyed some memorable outings. They have toured a yarn factory; gone to air shows; attended a dinner theater; and visited a train museum, artist studios, historical sites, a wood-pellet factory, and even a foundry that fabricates parts for out-of-production locomotives and train cars. Not every rally includes an outing, but rally planners do keep the possibilities in mind.

This group also has its share of members who can help new motorhome owners. “You learn so much,” John said. “It’s a great excuse to use your motorhome, and these people all have knowledge. If you have a problem, they’ve probably already had it.”

So, consider getting to know this group. After the April Fort Collins rally, other 2014 rallies are planned to take place in Cheyenne and Lingle, Wyoming, and in Akron, Loveland, and Penrose, Colorado. For more details, check FMCA’s Association Calendar in FMC magazine or online at FMCA.com.

This chapter has approximately 30 member families and would welcome you, too. Chapter dues are $10 per person per year and include a newsletter. For more information, contact the Chapter Services Department at (513) 474-3622 or (800) 543-3622; chapters@fmca.com.
