South Carolina Palmetto Pals – Presidents
Hello all from the Palmetto Pals! As I type this article, Grace & I are enjoying our travels out West after an amazing International Rally in Rock Springs, Wyoming. We met up with so many friends and made even more new ones as we sat around the campfire telling tales and stories. We stayed a week after the rally so we could explore the area, as we stayed too busy during the rally to fully appreciate the area.
Since leaving Rock Springs, Wyoming, we have been wandering around the Northwest part of the country. We’ve been to national forests, national wildlife areas, Grand Teton NP, Yellowstone NP, Theodore Roosevelt NP (North and South Units), Glacier NP, and Mt. Rainier NP. We have also toured the Grand Coulee Dam, watched one of two functioning ‘swing bridges’ open so a huge vessel could lock through the Bonneville Lock, rode the 101 Scenic Byway in parts of Washington and Oregon, and hiked to many waterfalls and beaches. And we met up with some fellow Palmetto Pals in Montana and did a wild river trip down the Flathead River in their inflatable dinghy – and nobody fell out and we didn’t tip over. Whew, to say we are having a blast would be an understatement!
We are registered to attend the Newmar Kountry Klub Albuquerque Balloon Festival at the beginning of October so we will begin to make our way down in that general vicinity soon. We are looking forward to meeting new friends and watching all the activities at the festival. From there, we head back across the country to make our way to the Region Five Rally in Savannah, Georgia. We love our Newmar family and so enjoy being active and involved with the Kountry Klub at the local, regional, and national levels.
Find your local Newmar Kountry Klub chapter and join it or find several chapters where you stay/live often/a lot and join them as well! Food, fun, adventures, friends, and campfires, plus a whole lot more awaits you!
