Okaynagan you've started my day with a smile on my face and a conflict in my head. Quartzsite was one of my favorite spots on I-10 to stop and eat. But in winter its definitely one of the largest flocks of snowbirds on the west coast. Quite the contrast from the sleepy town of summer which being a long haul trucker at the time was really annoying to see one of the best restaurants in AZ to be surrounded by a sea of RV's!
Im thinking O crap I've become one of them....Lol

Not going but I am marking my calendar for 2018 in Doswell, VA for International Rally. I did not get to Lewisburg but I did go to Escanaba and played in the band-both as a 1st-timer. I had a blowout just north of Ann Arbor going up to the UP. My 3rd in 12 months... one more tire to go and then I can wait five years and it starts all over again. (Special shoutout to Escanaba Walmart for their ineptness to charge me for the special order new spare tire, even after attempt to pay ahead of its mounting or reminding them 3x the next day, after mounting. "It's not showing up in our computer..." ) Portland's too far for me to even want to attend or attempt to drive alone over the mountains.

Doswell is 2019. We'll be there! We may bring both campers, if that's possible.

Yes, Doswell is in 2019. My mistake...getting old and forgetful, way too fast! For those of you who are in WBCCI and have never attended the Swiss Festival National Rally held the last week of September in Sugarcreek, Ohio, I invite you to make plans for our 2018 rally. The reservation forms will be distributed after Christmas via email to several years of past attendees and will be posted on the WBCCI Facebook group as well as our website (Swiss-Festival-National-Rally.net) when it is updated. It should also be on Region 4's website along with several Region 4 unit websites. They are also printed hit and miss in the Blue Beret. There is much to see and do and everyone says it is one of the best, if not THE best National Rally our club offers. Singles are $175 and doubles are $225.

I am going with a group from the Escapees club based out of Texas to the Albuquerque Balloon fiesta in October. We have been welcomed by a regional Airstream group and camped with them. It would be fun to have another B190 show up in October if anyone is a member. Probably, tagging along with a more established group would be a good idea just get the word out ahead of time so campers could plan to go if schedule allowed.

I’ve heard good things about this rally, but I haven’t attended. Unfortunately it’s around a time when we have other things going on, so we may not be able to make it.
