The Rally is over for another year

The Winnebago rally officially ended on Friday and we decided to hole up on the rally grounds until today.   We ran some errands and picked up our mail from the post office (we had forgotten about it on Friday.)  I guess we were still suffering some from the extreme heat that blanketed the midwest this past week.  Thank goodness the rally grounds had good power lines and everyone appeared to keep their air conditioner humming away.

On Thursday, I was blessed (if you call it that) to be elected as President of the WIT365 (fulltimers) club.  So since I had some strong opinions on what we ought to be doing differently, we spent the next three days making some arrangements for the revised program we want to lead next year.  We heard several comments that all the club has done at GNR was "eat"!  So we're planning to schedule several tours for the group during the week.  Also, they didn't particularly like the meals  as scheduled, so we're doing them our way.   (They have been in a rut for the last 4 or 5 years I think.)  Any way, we'll try something new.

We remained on the rally grounds to the bitter end, leaving at something after 12.  They actually pulled the power on us, so it was either sweat, run the generator or move to friendlier locations.  So we traveled 50 miles south to Sandy's old home town and we're parked in a county park next door to it.  Sandy saw a note that her old high school and all of the furnishings  were being sold at a sheriff's auction on Wednesday.  I'm not sure what she has in mind other than to see lots of old friends.  (We don't have room in our motorhome for any more stuff.)   Perhaps a memento or two will make it our way.

We intend to remain here for 3 to 5 days.  Then we'll move east and north towards the camp near Rochester, MN where Sandy is hosting a family reunion!  It will be fun.
