I can’t believe how long it has been since I last posted. We have been so busy enjoying our travels and dealing with life situations that I just didn’t feel like pounding out posts on the keyboard. Since leaving the Black Hills of South Dakota, we have been through the corner of Wyoming and Nebraska (Scott’s Bluff National Monument), stayed next to Rocky Mountain National Park, spent a week at the Newmar International Rally in Pueblo, attended the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, took a hot air balloon ride, visited White Sands National Monument, dealt with issues involving my mother’s health care that threatened to take us back to Illinois, and escaped damage to our home from Hurricane Matthew. Phew! I think it’s time to get rid of that house so we have one less thing to worry about.
Each one of the above named places and/or events deserves an individual post, but in the hopes of catching up on my blog, I will be posting the “Reader’s Digest Version”. I do plan to write more about the pros and cons of attending rallies at some point. This type of event seems to have a love/hate relationship with many RV’ers. I also want to reflect on our first year of ownership of this motor home. It is hard to believe, but we picked it up one year ago this month in Nappanee, IN. October 12th to be exact. We have spent seven months of that year in the RV and needless to say we have enjoyed every minute of it.
We are currently in Kerrville, Texas at Buckhorn Lake RV Resort attending our third event – The Hoots Rally. “Hoots” is a group of Newmar owners who also are active participants on the iRV2 forum and love to share information about the Newmar product line and modifications they have done to their RV’s. There are currently 37 coaches participating with numerous activities and seminars planned for the upcoming week. Once we leave this event we will begin our journey back to Georgia (unless life’s events take us elsewhere).
More to come soon…..
