As promised a few posts ago, here we are at the Good Sam Rally. One-and-a-half of the reasons for being here were negated by circumstances: the on-road driving course wasn’t available during our time frame, and Katharine McPhee got replaced with Kenny Rogers. (I guess giving Kenny Rogers 1/2-credit for Katharine McPhee is about right.) And I got chained to the laptop working for a large part of Friday. But still, we continue to learn more and more about our latest version of the RV experience. I took seminars on satellite TV and traveling Alaska; Wendy took seminars on RV cooking, cleaning, and such. I managed to buy more stuff. (I’m learning that one of the great things about a motorhome is that you can never have enough gadgets–suits me just fine.)
I might still like to try smaller, focused rallies of various types. Further musings on that option to follow.
Next trip? December will be the Army-Navy game, so nothing then. We’ve scheduled a trip to the Topsail Hill State Park in January, traveling with my good friend and his wife. We are definitely going to Fort Wilderness in February. Woo hoo! After that, nothing planned…
Statistics for the trip:
Total cost of the trip: $756.25 (includes $429 rally fee)
Total distance traveled: 903 miles
Average mileage: 8.95 mpg
Range of mileage: 8.5 to 11.5 mpg
