Ken and I will be attending the Indio rally along with several others who are here at Catalina.  We will be overnighting at the Casino 29 in Coachella on  Sunday the 5th and entering the rally Monday morning.

We will be unable to attend the Tony Roma dinner.

... the nudist bunch at Quartzsite.
That gave me a mental picture of a bunch of old farts running around naked. Not a pretty picture. :P
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Thanks for the invite but  dinner at Roma's is  not on my list for this winter.  As Sheila said we are going in after a night stay at  Casino 29.  We will likely do dinner Sunday night at their casino as a thank you for their stay.  Then we'll caravan in as a group on  Monday.

Happy Birthday to you and Mike!

see where we are

Dinner at Roma's sounds great, but I just found out I'll be at our L.A. tower this weekend and all or most of next week.

Our landlord has brought in a crew to re-paint the orange and white stripes on the tower, which means I'll have to be on site to make sure our antennas are de-energized whenever the crew needs to work around them.

They expect the painting to take 7 days, weather permitting.  If it goes faster I may still be able to schedule a trip to Indio before the week is out and stop by the FMCA rally like I did last year.

Loretta and I will be with the RV Forum group arriving at Indio.  Sorry, we won't make the dinner.
We look forward to our first FMCA party. . .  Worried about that nudist thing in Quartzite however.

It looks now to be unlikely we'll make it to Indio, though we're certainly planning to make Qz. We've got three inches on the ground, with more to come, and Monument Hill and Raton Pass aren't very attractive at this point. Current forecasts indicate we'd not get out before Tuesday at the soonest, so the rally would be half over before we got there.

Had we been able to get out a couple of days ago, we'd have made it, but other things prevented that. Maybe next year...

Thanks, Jeff, but with three (probably four) travel days, that would mean arriving late Thursday or sometime Friday. Since Saturday is the last day, it wouldn't be worth the extra time and miles for just a day or so. A nice thought, though.

Larry, fly out and land at 42CA. I'm sure someone would pick you up.  ;D    ;D    ;D

Wendy,

The group is in Orange Lot Row 3. Happy Hour has been between the Brewer's and our coaches ( about 8 or 9 in from the road).

We had a  hearty group for  Happy HOur tonight.  Group faded away when  temps dropped.  We are off to BINGO tonight and will be in line at 6pm.  Wanting to win "The Big One" to help pay for coaches we saw today for sale!

Parade tomorrow so Happy Hour  will be adjusted accordingly.

Sadly no one in our group won squat at Bingo tonight.  We did have a few laughs.  The WINNING  pots were between  $250 TO $500 FOR THE  BLACK OUT.  Not exactly enough for a new coach but it woulda been nice. We are still glad we were able to spend time with great friends!  And many got new  daubers!

Did Mac the Fire Guy's Escaping Your RV in an Emergency this morning. I was one of the lucky (?) ones who got to escape. It's kind of scary dropping blind to the ground. Anyone want to practice in Quartzsite? Also went to the FMCA Benefits seminar ... lots more than I thought ! Wandered the vendors and motorhome displays. Busy day, bought nothing. Did win a package of Minute Rice. Great parade at 4 pm. Don't you all wish you were here ?

I had no idea who New Odyssey were  :-[ so I googled them and watched some YouTube video, or as much as I could stand.

Did they play numerous instruments during the performance?
