Hi folks! Guess where we are, in the middle of the winter?
We are at the 2023 Winnebago View Navion Rally, held in Quartzite, Arizona. The weather has been perfect 58 degree days and 35 degree nights; not too bad since when we left home it was 33 degree days and 15 degree nights and snowing. It truly feels wonderful!
The rally consists of hundreds of people getting together in the middle of the Arizona desert to meet and greet, camp together, and just have a good time sharing stories about their rigs. There is an agenda, so it’s very organized, and lots to do, see and learn. Example: first day starts out at 9AM with a BIKE RIDE, 10 AM is a hike to Q mountain or watercolor Sketch with Amy, and then hospitality get together at 5PM. We visited the big white tent on opening day of the RV show, which proved one time is good enough for us but everyday truly is full of fun get-togethers and seminars. Almost too many things to do!
Yesterday we joined the watercolor class (super fun!), today is solar seminars, and tomorrow a pancake breakfast. So far there are over 145 Views parked every which way, with all being unique colors, styles and designs. It’s quite overwhelming with lots to do, super friendly people, and technical information from the attendees at the Rally. We even got to meet the YouTube famous Grammpa Ron at several of his seminars, great fun indeed!
We met the most amazing people who are very friendly and helpful if you had a problem of any kind. We camped between two especially nice couples and quickly became friends. A big shout out to Marshall and Mel and Everett and Diana, which lots of fireside memories were created.
So see ya all next year and many thanks!
Jeff and Liz
