We made it to Longs, SC and the RV-Dreams rally. Linda and Howard Payne started the fulltime RV lifestyle in 2005 and started the RV-Dreams.com website to go along with it. They have developed quite a following and this is their third annual rally. We attended the first one in Branson, MO in 2008.
Their enthusiasm for the lifestyle and for having fun with their many friends is contagious.
I know it’s a lot of work to put on a rally, but they don’t let it stop them from enjoying themselves.
A lot of the rally is seminars about the fulltime lifestyle. Many people come here because they are thinking about becoming fulltime RVers – it’s a great way to learn. We’re doing 3 of our seminars: Internet on the Road, Managing Digital Photos with Picasa, and Every RVer Needs a Blog. We had two whole hours for our Internet seminar yesterday and we used every minute of it! The choices have increased so much over the last couple years.
The second night’s gathering was all about gadgets. Attendees were encouraged to ‘show and tell’ their favorite items. I especially liked this silly invention that allows toilet paper to roll from the top *or* the bottom just by a swivel.
Here’s Mom and Jim walking over to the meeting hall. Except for a storm in the night – we’ve had great weather.
