It feels so good to be out traveling in the motorhome once again! The spring weather has been good to us this year and we are enjoying all the spring flowers. We have been to three rallies so far this year and it has been wonderful to catch up with friends, some of which we have not seen in a year and a half or even longer. It does not matter where or when we meet up it seems the fun and laughter always follow. It has been sad though to find that some incredibly special people have aged out of the RV lifestyle and sold their coaches. We are looking forward to seeing many of you at future rallies this year.
Speaking of future rallies, we finally have the Washington State NKK Rally on the calendar, and you can begin signing up. Here are the particulars: September 8-13 at Horn Rapids RV Resort in beautiful Richland, Washington, along the banks of the majestic Columbia River. Please call the resort at 509-375-9913 to make your camping reservation after you have registered for the rally on the NKK website. Camping fees are $51.71 per night. Please mention you are with the Newmar Kountry Klub group.
Rally fee is $240 for two (2) people, that includes three (3) catered breakfasts and three (3) catered dinners, we possibly may have a potluck one night. Once again, we are offering an optional lunch cruise on the Columbia River. There is an extra $60 per person charge for the lunch cruise. Payment for the cruise should be included with your registration fee. All other activities are subject to Washington State COVID guidelines at the time of the rally and will be announced as we get closer to rally time.
Registration deadline is July 15 and is limited to 15 sites. Make checks payable (including lunch cruise payment) to Ben Barker, mail to 5518 Northwest Drive, Bellingham, WA 98226. (Contact number: 360-201-5670.) Please include disclaimer form.
We are looking forward to the Evergreen Aires Rally in June but will be missing the International Rally in July. Looking farther down the road, it is time to start securing a rally site for the 2022 State Rally. That being said, if anyone has a particular park, they like that they would like us to look at please let us know. We would prefer to hold the 2022 rally in Western Washington since we are in Eastern Washington this year. With the recent surge in RV sales across the country parks are filling up fast, so let us hear from you soon.
That’s it for now from our corner of the state. Safe travels everyone and we hope to see you down the road at a rally near you.
