Nevada Mother Lode – Presidents
The severe wildfire smoke has finally cleared due to the recent wet weather. The main issue now is the threat of rains causing flooding, mud slides and washed-out roads.
The USA Border crossings may be open by now. We hope our Canadian Kountry Klub friends will be able to come down to US rallies and likewise maybe we will be able go up to Canadian rallies.
We attended the NKK Arizona State Rally in Casa Grande, Arizona at the Pinal County Fairgrounds. An informative tour of the Wuertz Gourd Farm and craft shop with many uniquely shaped and painted gourd creations as well as bare gourds were displayed and for sale. The second tour was of Caywood Farms describing Cotton’s long journey from seed to fiber and the residual products of cotton seed and cotton oil. A Hay ride was enjoyed by the participants.
We then went further south to the NKK Region One Rally at the Butterfield RV Resort in Benson, Arizona, Benson was a base camp for trips to Kartchner Caverns State Park for a tour as well as to the infamous Tombstone and mining town of Bisbee.
Next, we headed north to the NKK Nevada State/Mother Lode Chapter Joint Rally at Lake Mead RV Village Park in the scenic Lake Mead National Recreational Area. A tour of the Nostalgia Street Rods Museum in Las Vegas was of special interest to most of us because we still remember the 50’s and 60’s.
It is time to plan and sign up for the winter, spring and summer NKK rallies. Check specific rally locations and dates in the NKK Legacy Magazine and on the NKK website to make the most out of your trips and try to link a few rallies if they are not too far apart and the dates are reasonably close.
