From a news release:
More than 300 vintage trailers and their proud owners will be participating in the Fifth Annual "Trail Along to Pismo" Vintage Trailer Rally this weekend at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort.
The highlight of the weekend is the open house May 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. All the units will be decorated inside and out in vintage décor as they celebrate trailers built between 1910 and 1985. Resort guests and the public are welcome to join the fun and tour the units during the open house and there is no charge. Anyone not a registered guest should park off the resort and walk into the event, as parking is not available on site.
Participants will see restored units from the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s with names like Airstream, Boles Aero, Shasta, Westcraft, Vagabond, and some one of a kind. In addition many of the units are towed with vintage vehicles such as Hudson pickups, Willys wagons, and numerous Woody wagons. Participants have planned activities such as bowling tournaments, kite flying, outdoor movie night, night at the Melodrama, group meals and socials.

Kootenai County in northern Idaho is receiving nearly $700,000 in state grants to renovate aging public infrastructure, the Parks and Waterways department revealed on Monday (May 14).
The Idaho Parks and Recreation Department is awarding Kootenai County Parks and Waterways a $331,179 waterways improvement fund grant to rebuild the Sunup Bay boat launch on the west shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene, said Parks and Waterways Director Nick Snyder.
Parks and Waterways also received a state Recreational Vehicle grant of $366,844 to renovate the public RV dump station on Dalton Avenue, where recreators can unload the holding tanks on their RVs, campers and vessels.
Both of the projects, scheduled to undergo construction this fall, have been needed for years, Snyder said.
From the Copper Basin News:
The Oak Flat Campground on the Globe Ranger District, Tonto National Forest, is closed to the general public until May 22.
The closure has been requested to allow for the privacy and security of tribal activities for traditional and cultural purposes. The San Carlos Apache Tribe has requested the use of the Oak Flats Campground to host a private religious tribal ceremony. Oak Flats is a no fee campground therefore there were no fees charged to the tribes for private use of the campground.
Paige Rockett, the public information officer from the Tonto National Forest, explained that the San Carlos Apache tribal government officially requested use of the campground through government to government communication. This event is being held as an official San Carlos Apache Tribe-sponsored event. Rockett also explained that in her 11 years with the Forest Service this is the first time the San Carlos Tribe has officially requested use of the campground for an official tribal event. The Forest Service did not have information on the exact type of ceremonies or cultural traditions that will take place over the nine-day period.
