Tennessee State Directors
Yes, “Winter” has arrived and we will soon be hanging our new 2022 calendars! That too is becoming old fashioned and historical. I can remember when the excitement built waiting to see the picture on the new calendar. Yes, just one big picture and you tore off each passing month. In later years came calendars with each month having a new picture. In our little town we had a Birthday Calendar printed and the town folks donated a few dollars to have each one of their family members listed on the day/month they were born and how old they were. It was always exciting to hear the phone ring on your birthday as a neighbor, friend, or cousin would ring you and either sing “Happy Birthday” or wish you one. I know as a family we would all gather around our phone when we called anyone and sang “Happy Birthday” to them! It was so much fun. Today your calendar is probably on your smart watch or smart phone! Growing up in small town USA was a blessing then, and for those lucky ones who today live in a small tightly-knit rural community, a blessing for them.
Well, enough reminiscing and on to the business of RVing. Where are you spending winter? You might be in Florida, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico or Southern California, who knows, maybe you choose to stay home. Wherever you are, Charlene & I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy and Safe New Year.
For those of us who have stayed home, in our case Tennessee, we hope you have a good pile of dry firewood and can enjoy the warmth of a crackling wood fire and fragrant smoke smell when you stick your head out the door to see if it is cold or how much it snowed overnight.
Rally season is wide open in the southern states where “Snow Birds” flock, and we hope you are checking the Legacy’s Klub Calendar and getting online to register and enjoy the fellowship. “Fellowship” is what NKK and camping is all about.
Our 2022 Tennessee State Rally April 26-May 1 has been sold out since August 2021, and we have a standby list started. As we write this article, we are waiting on the 2022 April/May, Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville show schedules and pricing to be published so that we can finalize our rally fees and daily schedules.
Many of you will be at the Rally in the Keys this month and next month the Tampa SuperShow or boondocking at Quartzsite; Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
Well, we will close for now as it is October as we write this, and it’s time to go cut firewood…hmmm maybe I’ll just buy some this year and sit back in my “LazyBoy recliner”!
We will close with, Safe Travels and God Speed. We can be reached at 931-638-2015 or email@example.com.
