Dave & Joanne Killey
Region Nine Directors
I saw a sign the other day that said: “Making Memories one campsite at a time.” Is it making memories or creating memories? There is an irony about trying to make memories that we will not really know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
Upcoming dates of interest:
February 1 Chinese New Year – Year of the Tiger
February 14 Valentine’s Day
February 15 National Flag Day of Canada
February 21 Canada Family Day Observed in New Brunswick, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Saskatchewan and in British Columbia.
March 20 We all look forward to the first day of spring.
Upcoming RV Shows in Region Nine:
January 26 – 29 Calgary RV Show
February 10 – 13 Edmonton RV Show & Sale
February 17 – 20 British Columbia Early Bird RV Show
February 18 – 21 Red Deer RV Show

These snippets taken from past posting on the Region Nine Facebook page:
*Kudos to Terry in the parts department at Midtown RV in Penticton for going above and beyond to source the part we need while broken down in Boise, Idaho. Should be back on our way to Yuma Friday afternoon.
*Question re travelling south this winter……. Has anyone taken the bypass at Las Vegas….. Nevada highway 612? Wondering if it’s good highway for a 43’ RV? Thank you!
*Good News, the border is opening in November. Who else is heading for the sun? We will be headed to Yuma.
*I‘m wondering how to get an insurance for my 2001 Newmar Mountain Aire DP4095 for Germany and Europe . I was told that my Provincial registration in Manitoba, Canada , wouldn’t cover my Motorhome in Europa. I would like to ship my Motorhome to Europe to make a roundtrip through Europe. Does anyone have any experiences or ideas how I could get an insurance for Europe?
We certainly hope you have a great rest of the winter wherever you may be and Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone.
As always, our door is always open, and we look forward to all comments and suggestions.
We meet, We part, We hope to meet again….
