We just got back from our 3rd RV show of 2017. THIRD! We’re becoming show junkies or something. The crazy thing is how incredibly different the experience is from show to show. The Tampa RV show, our first of the year, is a manufacturer’s show…it’s huge, it’s a spectacle, and there’s not a model of RV you can’t find there. The Minneapolis show, our 2nd show this year, is sponsored by Good Sam and is old and established, with cabin-fevered Minnesotans packing the house so tightly the lines to enter go down the block. And then there’s our latest show, the brand new Phoenix Good Sam RV Supershow.
The weird thing about this one is that it’s not only an RV show. It’s just as much a rally as it is a show. So there are tons of “rally” things happening concurrent with the show. Live music, BBQ competitions, evening fireworks, seminars (some of which we led), etc. Over 1,000 rigs camped out there in the Phoenix International Raceway parking lot.
We were camped with a bunch of other campervan owners, all Travatos except one AdvancedRV named “Pebbles”. The video gives a look at our whole Phoenix show/rally experience, hope you’ll check it out.
We’re trying this new “thing”… simple videos that give a look at what we’ve been up to. We’re not really known for that, since up till now our videos mostly have an educational component…RV reviews, workouts on the road, etc. We’ve never really shared much beyond that video-wise. So, it’s new territory for us! I kind of like it though, at least for us personally. It’ll be a fun way to look back at various events we did. A much better memento than a trip pic!
Oh and by the way, the background music for the video was an original song from a band James was in called Slinky. Pretty much all the music you ever hear on our videos is original stuff from James and various musician friends and bands he’s been in. All these years married to the guy and I’m still in awe at all his talents and hobbies.
Speaking of James, he’s out in the RV as I type with Lance all torn up. He’s completely removed a cabinet that was above our dinette and is rebuilding it. Not home even one week from the road, and he’s already in project mode. My little tinkerer…
Off to the spin bike I go, hi-ho hi-ho!!! Have a great week, all!
