Georgia Peach State Krackers – President
The month of July has come and gone, and we are sliding past the middle of August. Reflecting on the past month and a half, has been a terrific journey. We left home on July 6 headed to Rock Springs, Wyoming, and braved the higher heat of the south–some days hit 110 degrees. Then we ran into a swarm of bugs that were the size of small birds somewhere in Iowa. Had some really good food at a Harvest Host location in North Platte, Nebraska, and finally overcame the high winds of eastern Wyoming. We arrived on July11, did the Flaming Gorge tour on the 12th, and went to work on the 13th. We had a great rally, and it seems that each year builds on the previous. Ron & Wanda, the Region and State Directors and of course where would a rally be without Volunteers, did a fantastic job getting everything ready. The show went on without any visible hitches.
We left the 36th International Rally on the 23rd of July and made a direct run straight across five states to the “Follow the River” campground in Florence, Indiana. We spent two days there before traveling to my Kentucky home in Eubank, Kentucky, population 300, “Salute.” That is a little HEE HAW plug for those of you who remember. We stayed there a week with family before we made the trek to Knoxville, Tennessee where we stayed one night to help Carole’s cousin with her husband. Then back to our home in Kennesaw, Georgia after 29 days. If my calculation is correct, we traveled 4,032 miles round trip and on the road 14 days.
As this is written we are working like little beavers on our 25th Anniversary Rally in Hiawassee, Georgia September 21-25, which is full. And are in the planning stages for our rally in 2023. Watch the NKK website for more information and upcoming rallies.
