The Rally, Day one

It’s pretty chilly here in Albuquerque – but when the sun is out it’s beautiful.  The trees have just sprouted bright green new leaves.



The rally officially starts on Friday with Exhibit Hall and all - so Thursday is just for seminars. We presented one seminar in the afternoon - Every RVer Needs a Blog - so we actually had time to attend others!!


My favorite was Bob Difley talking about Boondocking on Public Lands.  I’ve enjoyed the Difley’s (Bob and Lynne) writing since meeting them at Life on Wheels in 2004.  Lynne is the exercise nut – she even inspires me and Jim once in a while!


Here’s Bob teaching the class:


Ooooh – there are so many places we still have to visit!  He referred to a few websites for reference that I wanted to remember:

US Forest Service (adventure travel)

And then, there’s his own website at:


When we first walked into the seminar room, we heard pleas for ‘Is there a Geek in the house?’  Here comes Jim to save the day!


He definitely needed a bigger room!


Thanks for the great seminar Bob!  Hope to go boondocking with you someday.


Today is the first day of the Exhibit Hall – we’re going to be in the booth - #435.  If you follow the link, you should be able to see a live webcam feed from the booth.  I’ll wave!  If you’re here, come say Hi!  We have all our Tutorial Videos for sale on DVDs, as well as certificates for the online membership.  Our rally special is to buy it *all* for $59.  Such a deal!  The videos will teach you how to manage your digital photos, make professional slideshows, make a blog, use Windows Vista, Google Earth, and much, much more.  And the online membership also gives you access to our Members-only Q&A forum where we’ll answer your questions.  If you’re not at the rally, see our order page online.
