Stephen & Cara Sue Kraus (25501)
Kentucky State Directors
We are Steve & Cara Sue Kraus, the new State Directors for the great state of Kentucky. Thank you Newmar for giving us this opportunity. We are excited to give new life to our state and encourage more Newmar owners to join our chapter, (Bluegrass Kountry Roamers). Let us give you a little background history about us. Steve & I married 5 ½ years ago and live in Louisville, Kentucky. Steve has a son, Nick, who lives close by. Cara Sue has a son, Brian, who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. His wife just gave birth to our first granddaughter, Rose, 7/26/23. She also has a daughter, Lindsay, who married in May to her husband Greg. They now live in Valparaiso, Indiana. So, this has been a busy year for us!
When Steve & I married, within a month we bought a 23 ft. TT. By the end of summer, we upgraded to a 27 ft. TT. It was fine for weekend trips, but after taking a trip out West. We bought our 2020 Kountry Star 3412. We absolutely love our coach, which we call Roxi! We enjoy exploring new places in this great country. We enjoy hiking and are avid bicyclists, usually riding 35 – 40 miles a day. We travel everywhere with our bikes. When at rallies, we will disappear for a few hours for a bicycle ride. The one thing we started missing was traveling with people. So, when the State Director’s position became available, we knew this would be our opportunity to meet people in our state to travel with.
We can’t wait to get started by reaching out to our existing members and seeing what they’re looking for out of the Klub. Next part would be contacting new owners and encouraging them to join. We can’t do it alone; we need members to step up and also get involved. We have openings available for Chapter President, Treasurer and Secretary. We will work together to make the chapter fun and exciting. Finding campgrounds, we never knew about and exploring interesting places around it. You will hear more from us in the upcoming months.
Till then, happy and safe travels! We can be reached: Steve Kraus 502 419-5458 or by email: email@example.com.
