Dave & Sharon stopped by today just as I was leaving to go to a Beaver dinner at the Moose Lodge. Becky was home because she broke a blood vessel in her eye. Its really bothering her. Sorry to have missed you.

There are 5 RVForum  members who met today in the holding area to then be led as a group to a perfect location. We are in lot C 6th Street.  It is on the grass just steps from the entrance at South Sister Building.

We have never been parked this close.  This is heaven.  It is a bit toasty (86) but a nice breeze.
So Kuchs, Weimerts, Downs, Brewers and Fitzgerald's are present.  Thank you Ken for making our sign and waiting for us to arrive.

Rain and lightening spoiled my plans to attend the movie.  But I did make popcorn in our rig and Terry is finding me a movie for viewing in our coach.  Good news, the Fabric Guard I sprayed on our awnings have renewed the waterproof aspect of our awnings!

Thanks Wendy for the private conversation. Who will get up early for morning exercise?

Who will give an excuse?

If I recall, we both did both last year. Why do people think we need to exercise at 7 flippin' a.m.  ?

Dee wants to offer the first excuse for missing exercise class.  Since we aren't there yet, she might be a little late.  Nothing new for us!  Hopes that's a valid excuse. LOL!  See you tomorrow.

And that's why I truly love Wendy, even though she's a Bronco fan and I'm a Seahawks fan.  ;D

We have arrived and are parked!  As usual, I'm sure we are the last to arrive  ;)  Anyway, we are in Lot D, on 6th Street.  Don't really know how close we are to all of you?  We will probably go for a walk when the rain lets up.  Oh ya, and we have a roof leak around the roof vent in the bathroom  >:(  Anyone is welcome to stop by if you are over this way!

Welcome Steve & Dee,

At 1:30 Accu Weather said the rain will end in 17 minutes.
The group is is lot C  6&7 street fairly close the Inner Circle Drive.
If you walk south on your street you will come to Inner Circle DR. Turn right to walk toward Lot C.
Also if you walk towards us on Inner Circle Dr you will come to an entrance to the Event Center. Go in and on your left will be North Sister bldg. In it is the FMCA information where you can exchange your "Locator" card (in your doc package) for your Arrival bag of information - including a map of the facility

I read a statistic once that indicated that men who died during exercise most often did so
before 8AM.  I decided that I would definitely not be in that category.  Nothing strenuous
before noon, EVER. . . .

Plan on a happy hour gathering in lot c 6th street (5 coaches in from end nearest South Sister) between 4-5 daily, weather permitting.  Drop by, bring a chair and beverage.

We've been sitting out.  Some come late, some leave early.  Plenty  of laughs.  Meet your rvforum framily.

As I promised, plenty of laughs at Happy Hour.  Stan and Dave, where are you?  Here are some highlights of what you missed yesterday at the social hour before it was rained out!  We'll have an event daily at 4 that goes until the rains come!

Seems  Terry and Ray just had to show off their poles to see who had the  longest? Now they are equipped to clean airplane wings.

And today, Terry bought  one like Ray's.  I think he called it a bug  buster.  learned even more about using Picassa from the Geeks on Tour.  Had a sandwich for lunch ( ice cream sandwich that is at the  Ice cream social)  See you at  4 pm.  It does look sunny outside.

Sorry about missing the "framily".  We've had tram duty and we also have been being wooed by the Big Sky FMCA chapter down the street from us.

A beautiful Happy hour tonight. Stan  joined us as  Becky  negotiated with folks to replace her carpet with tile!  Sue and Bruce Purdy  joined us as friends from our FMCA 4 Wheeling group .  Friends of Ray and Liza  joined us as they search for their first  RV being former  live on board boaters.  Jerry  announced free  cocktails and  hor D'Oeurves being provided by Entegra Coach between 5:30 - 7. Ken and Sheila were both out and feeling well tonight.   Ramonda showed up with with  Bill and shared her  jewelry experience today  as did  Betty.   Steve and Dee came and shared the thrills they  are having with their first FMCA rally.  He continues to count years to retirement.  He is getting a new custom made mud flap.  We think it should say LIFE IS A JOURNEY but Dee needs convincing! Frank  purchased 4 new  batteries, ca ching! Henry bought a new step for Barb as he ran over the one she had out by her rig this morning.  Ray continued to provide me with  beer from his designer growlers.

We missed Mike and Wendy and all the rest of you who did not show up.  Life is good.

The FMCA Rally has ended and we did not buy a new motorhome or anything related to rvIng. Only thing we did buy was a Denver Broncos Bandanna for Gordon.

It was great to see everyone, albeit briefly. Next time, we'll get our security duties so they don't interfere with happy hour! Missed seeing Mike & Wendy. Perhaps another time! We enjoyed the rally, but after a week of conserving water, we are ready to move on! We parked last Sunday afternoon with 100 gallons of fresh, and this morning before showers we had 19. I know lots of you are old pros, but this was a major accomplishment for us!

Safe travels all,

Another Rally with  great friends.  I learned how to make wire wrap jewelry and purchased new microfiber cloths and new covers for leftovers but Sheila says they will never replace Saran wrap.
 I attended my first FMCA Governing Board meeting, so I learned lots about the inner workings of  our organization. I learned lots about Picassa and even joined  their member club to have access to ongoing support in managing my photos.  I learned how to  transfer photos from  my phone and Ipad to the  computer using Dropbox.  My brain needs a rest from so much learning! 

Terry bought lots of stuff and I'm sure he won in the spending department of this rally, though Frank's new  batteries were right up there.  But that is their story to tell.

See ya in Pomona March 2015.

At the last minute, the  FMCA rally and Fairgrounds gave permission to  spend another night on the premises , so we opted to spend another  night here.  Of course they  coiled up all of the electricity but we have a generator!

Terry wanted to watch his regular Sunday races so it was a perfect ending to a perfect week for us.  Many  people  opted to stay.  The sky got  black and pink around  9 pm and we  heard a bit of thunder but saw BIG lightening.  I managed to shop at Michaels and Walgreens before we  head back to Idaho in the morning with a stop at the John Day Dam on the way . Life is good.

Camera mystery solved.  The fellow who updated  Terry's Silver leaf gauge so it read new inverter,  left it here.  He had photos from 2011.

 Lesson learned... do not leave any photos on a camera  you may misplace.  Nothing  at all racy but just saying !
