RV Rally - old friends, new friends

We're so glad to have gotten our vaccines in February, that made us feel safe to attend the FMCA RV rally in Perry Georgia. On our way up, we stayed overnight at a Cracker Barrel - that's our favorite place when we're in "just-gotta-get-there" mode. You get dinner and breakfast - and a safe-feeling sleeping spot.

When we get to Perry we go straight to our spot. Most people attending a large RV rally like this are a little lost, but we've done this rally, in this location, at least 4 times: 2018201620142011 . It's beautiful weather and we are quite happy to be here.

We've intentionally lightened our schedule compared to last years, so we're feeling less stressed and can enjoy taking a bike ride around the fairgrounds.
The first day we presented 2 seminars, the second day 1, and the third day 1.  No printed materials this time, we just put everything online and told our audiences to go to a web page to get it. Easy peasy.

It was awkward for people to have to wear a mask, but everyone was a good sport and they set up way fewer chairs for social distancing, but I still think we had at least 100 folks in each seminar. I just love a live audience! We had a good time.

Jim brought 5 lobster from the freezer so we could invite some old friends, Mike and Darlene over for lobster dinner. We also invited a new friend, Meagan. She was parked right next to us in the seminar presenters parking area because she was giving seminars on solo RVing. Check out her cute little camper/trailer in the background.

Meagan also took a little video when she visited our seminar on Google Photos. Learn more about Meagan on her website:

On the way home we stopped at Alex's near Gainesville, and were treated with an outdoor music show by Mark Miale . Both Alex and Mark were in my High School graduating class.
What a nice getaway.
