      Ed & Christie McCoy Since this response it kind of cryptic, let me ask it this way.  When my current membership expires, and I decide to renew, will I get the discount?  Thanks

      Lewis Edge We camped in Banff at Tunnel Mountain Trailer Court and drove our toad to Lake Louise, which is what I would recommend.

      RoadHog 20 mins west in BC are campgrounds. Campgrounds in AB around Banff-Lake Louise are hard to get in summer.

      Lindsay Amy & Chase's Adventures with Mable Overflow parking, can’t remember exactly but under $14CA. we dumped at the campground at Lake Louise $8CA. Just a parking lot, but it served the need!

      DebbieT We have decided to try and offer something back to FMCA, in the way of volunteering and offering classes at rallies.... and encouraging folks to try it out.  Husband volunteered to be a parking guy at Gillette, and I *think* i will be giving a class or two!
    • Susan & Richard
      Susan & Richard We have volunteered at three rallies and will do more as time permits.  Can't be at Gillette due to a 45th anniversary conference during the same time period for our Amsoil business.
