View Full Version : US Eastcoast ukulele camping trip planning- request for suggestions

01-27-2011, 05:39 AM
We're planning an RV trip for sometime during the late spring /early summer, traveling along 95 South, from Maryland to Central Florida. We can still be somewhat flexible with the dates. So, we're looking for any ukulele festivals, gatherings, etc that might be good stops along the way. We'll have our travel ukes onboard as usual. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Nothing going on? Really?

you could check out the North Carolina ukulele academy in Wilmington. Looks like they have a monthly get together.


FMM has a calender but I don't know if there is anything going on along your route.

Your northeast tour starts in what I consider the south. :) But if I were you, I'd go see Mim! She seems so welcoming.

as soon as spring rolls around I'd like to get another round of the philadelphia uke group going, if our meet-up coincides with your roadtrip, you should come!

Thanks for your suggestion! We'll check out the Ukulele Academy in North Carolina. What is "FMM"?

We're not planning a "Northeast tour", but an RV vacation beginning at our home in the northeast part of Maryland,
through DC, VA, NC, SC, GA and ending in central Florida. We'd love to meet Mim in SC. Thanks.

Philly is about 1 1/2 hours north of where we live in Maryland and we'll be heading south. However, we may be able to
make a separate trip up to Philly for a meetup at a different time. We've made car trips up to four hours round trip for
meetups. Thanks for the invitation!

FMM is Fleamarket Music, makers of the Flea and Fluke. Link to thier calender of events. (http://www.fleamarketmusic.com/calendar/default.asp) I think there is a group around Charelston, SC as well, lowcountry ukers or something like that, might be able to find info on groups on FMM player directory as well.

The SEUkers will be doing a summer uke thing like we do every year but it is in the Atlanta area which is just a little out of your way.
