FMCA Family Reunion - Gillette WY June 19 thru June 22
« on: June 14, 2013, 05:12:52 PM »
We are attending this rally, and in fact are already here. Beaver Ambassador Club (a chapter of FMCA) is volunteering for security duty, so we are having a pre-rally rally. We are in site 105 in Boxelder RV Park inside the Cam-Plex in Gillette (just east of the Grandstands), and will be at the same site for the FMCA rally when it starts. Stop by and say hello if you are going to be here!

Jerry and Ardra have arrived at Cam-Plex.  We're in the 50-amp section, section 3, row E, 7th Street.  I think!  The signs aren't all that clear and we've been told we're in section 2 and section 3.  We are at the end of the row next to Boxelder Street.  Will modify our location if we find out differently.

The high whirly-gig is at the rear of the motorhome and the RV Forum flag is on the front.

Betty and Terry are parked happily in the generator section.  Lot 5,  3rd street second from the end of row. We can see the Covered arena grandstands out our side windows.  There is a road right behind us that a tram travels we think.  But it is  pretty close to walk up to the activity areas.  We are a bit closer than last June for the area rally when we were in electric section.

The big black clouds dropped a few sprinkles on us but the sun appeared and our solar panels are now pumping in 30 amps ! And yes it is MONDAY the 17th.  I'm back on track of my days.

Stan & Becky,

I stopped  by  site 105 today and saw a Beaver with a red pick up with a  tag that  said Wayne. I knocked but no answer. After I located Jerry and Ardra on my walk, I realized there is a site 105 in row A and another in Row B and so on and so on So which row are you in?  I think we are very close. I tried!

No, we're in a blue Monaco Executive (see my avatar at left) right next to Boxelder Road.  The more I look at the map we might be in section 2, row E, 7th Street.  I think you might be to our left.  We have three flags on the front, one being the gold/yellow RV Forum.

Yep we got a pretty good rain ( 0.15 ) inches and big winds (highest gust 38 MPH) Not exactly sit out in the chair weather.  But the  Program is all highlighted and we are ready to hit seminars tomorrow and see motorhomes in the afternoon.

I'm going to a seminar at 1:30 that promises I can look 10 years younger in only 5 minutes.  I wonder if I will still be eligible for Medicare when my birthday comes in August?

Hi Betty & Terry and Forum members.
We wish you all a pleasant time and some better weather at the rally. Don't spend to much time on that seminar to look 10 years younger, you look great and there is no need to make a change. But you could do me a favor and ask if they have a seminar to make me 10 years younger and if it works I promise I will be at the next rally. Time is passing so fast. I turned 80 last month and in April we had our 55' Th anniversary and Mimi will be 79 in August. We have decided to keep the motorhome and explore some closer by travelling. Hope we can have a mini rally in September or October.

Have a good time and fun
chris & Mimi

Betty, Didn't you do that '10 years younger' seminar last year ? Better be careful or you'll look so young people will think Terry's your father :)

I'm doing the 'Posture and Joint Stability' seminar. I figure I need to make my body 10 years younger more than I need to look 10 years younger.

I think it was 10 years ago that I did that seminar.  So I  need it again.  In all seriousness I do use her makeup routine and like it.  I'll see you at Posture.

Ardra,
We're right down the road from you, so I stopped by about 10:15.  Nobody home  :(  I tried to leave a note in your clever message center, but I couldn't get the pen to work. Perhaps another time.

Stan, it was nice meeting you this afternoon.  A new pen is in the message center.  Darned if they aren't all dried out!  Hope this one stays working for a while.

It looks like Jeff & Selina, Randy & Debbie, and Stan & Becky are all near one another. 

We enjoyed the Eagle Butte Coal Mine tour this morning.  Quite an operation!  Being from western Pennsylvania and bituminous deep mining country, it was an interesting contrast to see an open pit coal mine.  It's amazing that they can restore the landscape as well as they do.  We even saw a doe and her baby on the way out.  Quite a contrast to the slag heaps I grew up seeing in PA - not fit for man nor beast!

Well now I know how to sit with good  posture, exercise to cure my sore hip, stay in shape with core muscle strength.  The  seminar was so good I am going back to  morning workout at  7 AM, YES you heard,  7 AM.
For me that is just unheard of. 

I got a ticket to buy the  kit to make me look 10 years younger and will purchase that in morning.   We are  off in a few minutes to see the new motorhome displays. 

Loving this rally!

Believe it or not, Wendy will be joining Betty for the 7 am exercise class. We'll have to get someone to take pictures because this will be a first .... and perhaps a last. I do NOT do 7 am. Of course, the exercise class will be done in time for the free donuts ;)

Whoo hooo, who will be the photographer?  Jerry/Ardra?  Randy Debbie, Bill/Ramonda?  Stan/Becky? Terry?  Mike? any other RVForum participants?

Come on we all know exercise is KEY.  She promises as little as 7 minutes a day could make a difference.  So Join us!

Then we'll go have donuts!

Oh Wendy!  No, no, no, no.  You cannot get up for 7 a.m. exercise and then negate it with doughnuts!  If you do that, we'll have to get out the wet noodle.  I DO hope someone gets a picture of you both exercising that early - then maybe I'll believe it, but not before proof!  ;) :D ;D  But we'd better not have a picture of you with a doughnut in your mouth!

Ardra, YOU should come take the picture of this momentous occasion then you would believe. As for the doughnut, I require a reward for this early morning endeavor and a doughnut is it ! Not to worry, we'll calculate the WW+ points and record them appropriately. And the afternoon Gillette walking tour is sure to work off one little donut :)

On an unrelated topic, could someone please turn off the wind? Thank you.

Wendy,

You re in WY, so live with the wind!    :)

We live on the east side of the continental divide and we have learned to live with the wind in MT.  Todays high is just over 45 mph.  WY is worse!
