On Our Way

There's a double meaning to my title today - 'On our Way.'

We are back on the road - we left Fort Lauderdale day before yesterday and are now at our favorite park, Thousand Trails, Peace River. Tomorrow we move on to Torrey Oaks to give a couple seminars. Then a stop at my Dad's on the way to Georgia.

We also feel that our baby business, Geeks on Tour, is on it's way to becoming a real, money-making business. We have a respectable schedule of RV rallies on our 'Tour' this summer. Starting next week with our favorite, FMCA International Convention, in Perry, Georgia. Of course, we have to put our money where our mouth is and pay all our own development costs and expenses to get to these rallies, and sometimes also to attend. We'll be dipping further into our savings than I ever thought we would. It is scary, but the most worthwhile things usually are and I know we're not alone in this predicament today.

Here's what we're booked for right now - the first four are large rallies of 1,000 to 3,000 rigs each. It's going to be an awesome summer!

  1. March FMCA Convention in Perry Georgia
  2. April The Rally in Albuquerque, NM
  3. May Escapades in Sedalia, Missouri **June Pirates rally at 'The Church' in Gravity, Iowa** (that's a whole other story!:-)
  4. July another FMCA International in Ohio
  5. September Gypsy Journal in Ohio

Do you believe in miracles? Unbelievable ... as I was writing this blog post, I got a phone call. By the time I finished the call, we were booked for another RV event ... a very special one that I heard about from Nick Russell of the Gypsy Journal. It's the RV Lifestyle, Safety and Education Clinic September 13 - 16, 2009 at the Wildwood Conference Center at Harrisburg Area Community College in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. And they've booked us to do several of our seminars there! Thanks Nick for putting in a good word for us. And, thanx for your recent blog post too. So, add a #6 to the list above: RVSEF clinic in September.

You won't see much on the blog from me this week because I need every single minute (and then some) to finish preparations for the FMCA rally. I'm still recording some of the tutorial videos that go on the disks we need to produce and sell and put on our website! I've always said, "If it weren't for the last minute I never would get anything done." I even decided to put a little bit of live video on the disks as an introduction. All the other videos are of the computer screen and my voice explaining the computer screen. People who know Geeks on Tour strictly from our tutorial videos have never seen my face, or met Jim. So, we set up a little recording studio; How do you like our teleprompters?!

I've heard good things about the Thousand Trails, Peace River campground. I'll have to check it out and stay there one of these days. You have quite a few rallies booked, good luck launching your new business. Maybe I'll see you at a rally or two.
