“Come and Go” Caravans 

Simply put, shorter “come and go” caravans allow participants to join, leave and/or re-join the caravan at any point. This ideal for working members or those with limited time.  Members of units in adjoining states may choose to join a short caravan as it nears their home state. 

Participants may be responsible for their own campsite reservations at state parks, thereby taking responsibility for cancellation.   They also pay individualized rally fees based on the activities in which they participated.     

Spreadsheets and a shorter time period make this easier for caravan leaders to calculate.
