The successful 2022 Newmar International Rally in Rock Springs, Wyoming is over. This was the first time that the Sweetwater Events Complex was utilized for a Newmar International Rally. The facility is large, well laid out with easy parking and access to event facilities. Of high importance was the large, fenced, grassy, off-leash dog park. The town (both old and new sections) was easily accessible with good roads, abundant stores, fuel stops and friendly people. The locally catered meals were all great with plenty of food for all. Those who organized the event did an outstanding job. We hope that this great facility is used for future Newmar Rallies
Those of us who drove out from the west endured the expected high summer temperatures. Rock Springs was hot but bearable with shorts, hats, cold water and an air conditioned Newmar Motor Home.
It is already fall and starting to cool off so it is time to re-check the NKK Calendar and decide which additional rallies you would like to attend both before and after the end of the year. It seems like winter will soon be upon us (winter officially begins December 21st). The snowbirds will soon be flocking South and West to avoid the North East cold weather. Florida, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona RV Parks among others will be filling up fast.
Remember to head over to the October 24th Nevada State Rally at the Lake Mead RV Village Park which is in the Lake Mead National Recreational Area (yes, pray for rain). The rally dates are arrival on October 24 and departure on October 27. The RV Park is within a National Park so if you have one, be sure to bring your US Park “Senior Pass” (or you pay a fee to enter). Among other venues, there is an extra cost optional tour of the Carrol Shelby Museum and Manufacturing area. Do you remember the Mustang, Shelby GT 350 and GT 500, AC Cobra, and Shelby Cobra? You can see them here. This tour may seem a little pricey, but if you are a car person you will love it.
When you travel, slow down and be safe. Be prepared for unexpected high winds and never-ending road repairs with the cone zones. Monitor your tire pressures and temperatures. Prepare your rig and toad accordingly for expected high summer temperatures.
