Season Greetings! Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year! It was great to get back to somewhat “normal” the last half of this year. We hope each of you had the chance to get out and do some traveling and enjoy being on the road.
The Missouri chapter had a couple of events this quarter. First, we had a rally at Coachlight RV Park the end of September with 13 coaches present; it was great to see our members this fall. We also had our annual Luncheon Rally in Carthage as well, attended by 37 members. We had some great BBQ and everyone had a fun time.
Our big adventure for the last quarter of the year was the NKK Grand Circle Caravan through SW Colorado and SE Utah. We managed to see several National Parks and other areas all in about three weeks. We were typically at a location for two or three nights, then on to the next sight to see. A whirlwind tour for sure. We met a great group of people and had a very enjoyable time. If you like seeing lots of places in a few weeks and appreciate having all of the details handled by someone else, then we would recommend you look into an NKK caravan.
By the time you read this, I would imagine several of you are either already headed to a warmer location, or are at least getting ready to do so. Remember, if you are heading to Arizona, the “Gathering in the Desert” and the Quartzsite RV show are in January. The RV show is amazing and Ted & Ruthie Hindes do a fantastic job at the “Gathering in the Desert.” Everyone should do Quartzsite at least once! We will be back in Arizona this year, too much wind in Texas for us!
Here’s hoping each of you have a great holiday season and are able to get some warm weather traveling in this winter. If you’re in Arizona this winter, get in touch. We can be reached at: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
