Welcome the Region One Aug./Sept. edition of the Konnection magazine. It’s the end of June as I write this article and our country is struggling to get control of the COVID 19 pandemic. Many states are returning to some form of closures or lockdowns as it seems we tried to return to normal a little too soon. Let’s all do our best to help control the situation and get on with the new normal sooner rather than later.
On a lighter and more welcome note, Mary and I were able to dust off the coach and get away for a few days to head north to the California Coastal Redwoods. It was not difficult to social distance in the RV park or as we trekked through the 350ft. tall redwoods. Our day trips up the California coast included a day in Trinidad, CA where we walked on the gorgeous, windswept beaches. We’ve been in this area a number of times in our lives but because we haven’t been anywhere in months this just seemed more special and beautiful. Take a look at places that are closer to home that you might normally bypass on longer trips and maybe use them as a short get-away to help relieve the stress of being cooped up at home.
As of this article, Region One still has the Colorado State Rally (Sept. 17-20) and the California Golden Bears Rally (Sept. 28-Oct.2) on the books for 2020. Along with these two rallies, Arizona has just scheduled their state rally for Nov. 12-16 in Casa Grande, AZ. Please see the ¼ page ad in this Konnection. Keep tabs on these rallies for any updates in the Klub Calendar section of the Kountry Klub website.
We are sad to note that both Henry and Carol Coleman have passed recently. They were members of the Arizona Sun Catchers for many years and enjoyed traveling with their kitties in their Newmar fifth-wheel for their yearly trips to Puerto Penasco, Mexico and many NKK rallies. They were one of the first friendship we made at our first Region One rally.
We truly look forward to the times ahead when we are able to socialize with our Newmar family and meet many new members at rallies coming up. We hope to get a full schedule back on track for 2021.
Stay safe and healthy, see you down the road.
