About Us

 

Welcome to…RIGS-A-MORTIS, a Central Texas (Area 4) Good Sam Chapter

Thank you for considering our chapter as your potential camping club. Below is some information that might help you determine if our style fits your camping goals. For detail information please browse this web site.

WHO WE ARE:

Many of our members are retired and live in the Georgetown area; others live throughout central Texas. We all love to travel, but because some of our members are still in the working world, most of our campouts are within 150 miles of the Georgetown/ Austin area of Texas.

If you would like to visit us at one of our campouts please contact us usingour “Contact Us” link below. You must camp with us at least twice and be a member of Good Sam International before you apply to become a member of Rigs- A-Mortis.

Rigs include Class A, Class C, Travel Trailers, & 5th Wheels. Please notethat some of the campgrounds we use restrict pop-ups. We allow quiet wellbehaved dogs. We allow guests but because we are an all adult club we do not allow children.

We share a variety of interests. Some members are quite active and enjoy hiking the trails around the campground or cycling through the countryside. Others enjoy a less active camping style such as reading, crafts, tinkering with their vehicles and RVs or just sitting back in a comfortable lounge chair talking with each other – solving the world’s problems.

CHAPTER PURPOSE:

It is the purpose of this Chapter to operate an all-adult socialorganization, to promote the use and enjoyment of recreational vehicles, and encourage outdoor fellowship among our members through trips and group activities.

This Chapter is strictly non-sectarian, non-partisan, non-sectional, andnon-racial, and is dedicated to bringing together people interested in theideals and principles of the Good Sam Club.

CAMPING/SOCIAL SCHEDULE:

Rigs-A-Mortis camps 10 months each year usually on the 3rd weekend except for November & December. Our November campout is on the 2nd weekend and our December campout is on the 1st weekend of the month.

Because we live in Texas and cool summers are not the norm, we do not schedule Chapter campouts during the months of July and August. But, not to worry, a small group of die-hards get together during these months and travel to either more distant or kid friendly locations. We have a club social each August.

WHERE WE GO:

Most of our campouts are held at private campgrounds in Central Texas (often SW of Georgetown). We seek quiet, off-highway, camper-friendly campgrounds with fully equipped recreation halls. We share a variety of interests. Some members are quite active and enjoy hiking the trails around the campground or cycling through the countryside. Others enjoy a less active camping style such as fishing, reading, crafts, tinkering with their vehicles and RVs or just sitting back in a comfortable lounge chair talking with each other – solving the world’s problems.One thing we all have in common is enjoying the spirit of friendship and a love for camping.

WHAT WE DO:

A typical pattern for one of our campouts is arrival on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and departure on Sunday. Many members like to explore the surrounding area. Friday nights we gather at a local restaurant for dinner and conversation. Saturday is usually spent at the campground playing outdoor games such as beanbag baseball, bocce ball, or just sitting around unless our hosts plan some event. Saturday evening we normally have a potluck dinner and a short club meeting followed by card and domino games.

Because this is an all-adult chapter there are no children’s activities. We understand that sometimes our members have children in their care, however it is not intended that children be in attendance at our normal monthly campouts. Each year, in July, several of our members organize a special family campout with their children or grandchildren at campgrounds where children activities are offered. Several of our members bring quiet, leashed dogs. Members and guests are expected to follow all campground rules regarding speed limits, quiet time, and pets.

Sunday mornings are reserved for goodbyes, packing up, hooking up and moving out.
