On July 14 we left Fairbanks Alaska to headed toward home. I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience we had with our host couple Larry & Patsy Wood. This was the trip of a lifetime. If you ever get the chance to go on a Newmar Alaska Caravan we say don’t pass it up.
Before we actually went to our home, we stopped in Jenison Michigan for a Michigan Aires/Great Lakers rally. We certainly enjoyed the weekend with a great ride on the Steamboat down the Grand River.
The following weekend we attended the Kentucky State rally in Bardstown Kentucky. So many laughs and lots of good food. Loved the musical outdoor performance, My Old Kentucky Home. This is the third time I have seen a production of My Old Kentucky Home at this venue and it was the best one by far.
Then the next weekend we went to the Ohio State rally in Hartville Ohio. We have never been to this town before and we had a great time touring Chocolate Creations and the MAPS Air Museum. We even sat in a gondola that used to be hanging below the Goodyear blimp. As usual we ate very well.
We made a trip to Newmar for some repairs the following week and spent time with 3 of the couples that were on the Alaska caravan that were there for the same reason. The new service center is beautiful, the camping area is top notch, and the techs as usual were great to work with. We did do the morning tour of Newmar and this tour is so much better than the ones previously. It encompasses more parts of the build and is 3 ½ hours long. The afternoon tour is shorter and does not have the added features of the morning tour. We did have to make a reservation as the morning tours fill up. We don’t know about the afternoon tours.
The last item we have for this article is that we will resign the Region 6 Director position as of December 31, 2019. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time as region directors but we find for personal reasons we must resign. We plan to remain active in the Newmar Kountry Klub as long as we can.
May you all get your fill of turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving.
Happy Trails to you . . .
