Mary & John Knight (20735)
West Virginia Traveling Mountaineers – Presidents
Our September chapter rally at Beech Fork State Park was a great success, in the end. Due to health issues and mechanical problems, some of our members arrived a little late for the first day or two. But in the end, we had five coaches, including members from Ohio and Kentucky. The weather was perfect; we had a guided tour of the local art museum and spent an enjoyable day out at the nearby Heritage Farm Museum. Both of these are worth a visit if you are in the Huntington, West Virginia area. Everyone agreed though, that the best time was sitting around the campfire eating smores after a wonderful pot-luck dinner, and swapping “war” stories. Perhaps we need to rename the chapter “The liars club”!
Mary & I are now preparing the coach for our journey to our winter spot in Florida. We stayed at a resort near Fort Myers that was badly hit by hurricane Ian just a few weeks ago. Some of the park model homes there were damaged, but repairs are underway, and our parking spot is fine, so the resort is open as usual. Some of the video we have seen shows that it will take much longer for places closer to the beach to recover.
While away from home we will be planning for 2023, so if anyone has suggestions, please let us know. We can be reached by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
