Gypsy Journal Rally Part 1

Yuma, AZ

We arrived at the park on Sunday as "early birds".  However, the Rally officially started Monday afternoon with welcome introductions  by our hosts Nick Russell and Miss Terry.

Then it was time for door prizes.  Lots and Lots of door prizes.   Of course, we won none.

Each morning starts with coffee and donuts.    There were 72 seminars from which to choose.  On Tuesday Len started with Electrical Management Systems while I went to Gypsy Journal FAQ's.  We both went to Tips and Tidbits: Why Didn't I think of that? Later Len attended a seminar led by Pat and Mike McFall on the Pressure Pro System and I went to 10 things to never do with your computer.   Wish I did this months ago and not clicked on that screen telling me I had a virus, thus giving me the virus.

After lunch we attended Transporting Firearms in Your RV  and Frustration Free RVing (an oxymoron I say).

By Monday afternoon there were about 175 rigs scattered around the Fairgrounds.

On Wednesday we learned about traveling to Alaska, a dream of ours; the care and operation of awnings (not so much fun), and RVing in Atlantic Canada.  Then we attended a two part session on Staying Married and Happy in an RV!   Enough said.

Wednesday evening was the Pizza Party.

Following the Pizza was the contest for Miss Cactus Queen.   

 Some UGLY looking dames.   And the winner was:

Matt.    Matt and Nancy are parked next to us in their Montana Mountaineer trailer.  They are fulltimers from Washington State.  Nancy is SOOOOO proud.

Looks like you are having fun, Donna & I went to the State Good Sam's Rally, our first, in Oct, they were pretty clannish and didn't seem to socialize much with us first timers,might be hard to get her to go to another, Rigg's won first place in the Doggie contest though, so there.Be safe out there.

Looks like great fun. Enjoy and I will enjoy with you. I think Alaska is a big dream for lots of us. I hope maybe someday to go there too.
