My first RV Rally

I'm not talking about my first rally of the year, I'm talking about my first rally ever, where I was an attendee. I didn't come to the rally to work. 
Our very first RV rally ever was the Great North American RV Rally in Hutchinson, Kansas in the summer of 2004. We were there as employees of Coach Connect and we operated the WiFi hotspot for other RVers. We could do that because we had a Datastorm Internet Satellite dish. Since then we've worked at all the major RV rallies by FMCA, Escapees, Good Sam, and many others, plus small rallies as well. Well over 100 rallies over our 16 years of RVing.
We're slowing down our schedule a bit these days, so when we found that it had been over 2 months since our camper had been on the road, we signed up for a Roadtrek get together in O'Leno state park.

Being sociable
Going for a walk in the woods.
So that's what a rally is all about. Who knew?

Having worked Breaks and Fund Raisers many times I understand exactly how you would feel when you can just relax.
The second last picture of the Trail nearly looks like a painting.
Be Safe and Enjoy the Rally.

It's about time.

I loved O'Leno state park campground when I stayed there 6 years ago. Very woodsy campground, super dark at night allows for stargazing.
The only bad thing I can say about my stay there is that is where I received my first tick. He tried to hitch a ride under my beltline. He didn't survive! :)
