By the way, next year's Great North American RV Rally is going to be in Daytona Beach at the Daytona International Speedway. At last I won't have very far to travel.  ;D

It would be a real challange to make all the rallies across the country.  Like you said it will be easier to get in sync once your on the road.

Hi Everyone,
We are in Redmond, Oregon enjoying the Great North American RV Rally.  I'd like to repeat my sentiment  that attending one of these rallies is a fantastic way to shop for RV's.  All manufacturers have their latest and greatest rigs on display with red carpet rolled out for your viewing pleasure.  Big tents are full of RV gadgets we  "must have."  The seminars are varied in topics and though many are trying to sell you their product, you do learn about stuff.  Please note there is an entire seminar on buying a ladder!  The parking was very efficient this time and the school bus transportation system is working well.  We have a view of the snow capped mountains and the sky is clear.  I will attend a microwave convection cooking class this afternoon and one of the featured entertainers is Debbie Reynolds. Life is good. Next rally is in Daytona Beach.

Day 2 of GNARV rally.  Betty was in the Vendor  tents at opening.  Stopped by Cotton Casual clothes vendor and was invited to participate in the afternoon fashion show as a model.  Whoooo hoooo.  Wore a purple cotton outfit  with a red hat and red purse and watch.  Will buy the outfit.  Won my matching number.  Terrible cell phone service.  Can't connect with Forum friends here shopping to buy a rig.

Terry fixed the Fantastic Fan and the tank sensor guage.  Of to entertainment.

Hi Jeff,

Surprisingly , it's been beautiful.  We saw a bit of rain duringn the night on first day.  Then 75 ish to mid 80's with a nice breeeze.  5600 rigs here.  They split entertainment into 2 groups the  6pm and the 8 pm.  It's warm but not hot inside the arena.  You would have loved it.  good transportation.

Day 4 of Rally.

Betty purchased lots of cotton comfortable clothes.  Terry purchased  an "invisible chamois."  This is a machine that pressure washes your rig and it dries without spotting.  Heavy duty industrial  spot free rinse.  Small and portable, saves time and money, affordable  or so says the sales brochere.
It was  a great rally.

Smokey,

I am typing as the satellite dish is going down so  pics will have to wait.  The cost was less than the new motorhome he really wanted to buy .  I will give a full report when we try it out on Saturday.  No it is not a snipe.

Sounds like you've been smoking something again Smoky. I don't go on snipe hunts and I'm not part of a conspiracy.

LOL Tom, I hope you are joking.? I was referring to the 50 amp service at QZ.? Surely you know what a snip hunt is?? (I hope ... :eek:).

I have not smoked anything in more than 40 years.? My vice has turned more liquid.? ?:D

I had those 50 amp full hookups last year at QZ and was pretty sure I would get them next year till Tom went and made arrangements to have them reserved for Smoky.  Heck I didn't seven know you could possibly reserve a site out there til Tom made that arrangement.
