Happy New Year to all. We hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, we certainly did.
As we write this it is 13 degrees with about 10 inches of snow on the ground up here in northern Whatcom County. This week has really packed a punch up here with gusty NE winds that drift the snow into even higher depths. All followed by an ice storm that left us coated in ice for two days. It was a beautiful sight to see but we are hoping that our extreme winter weather is over now.
We had to have some major repairs done over the winter, but the good news is that spring is just around the corner and just like you we are looking forward to getting out the Newmar and starting to travel again. Our first trip will be south to Yuma in April.
The Washington State Rally is on the NKK calendar. Here are the details we have so far. The rally will be at the Northern Quest Resort Casino RV Park in Airway Heights just outside of Spokane. Dates are arrival September 6, departure September 10. If you are planning to attend, we urge you to make your reservations now, as they are open to the public and are not holding sites for us. To make your reservations call 833-702-2082 and make sure that you give them booking number 28362. The booking number will ensure that you get our discounted rate. These are premium back in sites, and the sooner you make your reservation the more likely we will all be parked together. They have a 2-day cancelation policy for refunds so make your plans now to join us in September.
This rally is early enough in September so that those planning to travel to the International Rally in Missouri will have plenty of travel time. Details for rally pricing and activities will follow shortly. Hope you can join us. We welcome all you Oregon Pioneers and Idaho Spudnuts that are looking for a home. Also, for those that are going on the NKK Alaska cruise, please feel free to join us following the cruise.
Don’t forget the Evergreen Aires chapter rally is June 25-29 in beautiful Sequim, Washington along the shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We are looking forward to seeing many of you there.
Blessings for safe travels,
