Rally Roundup...Moving Down the Road

Monday, September 6, 2010

Well the rally is over...what a great time we had. So many friends...both old and new. We bought too much, ate too much, slept too little, laughed too much (nah, can NEVER laugh too much) and just generally enjoyed ourselves.

Let's see if I can remember our purchases. Stu got the on-board Electrical Management System (EMS from Progressive Industries) installed, we got a replacement dish on our Winegard HDTV dish (thank you to Bill Adams from Internet Anywhere for all his work and help), I bought a great new purse from Debbie Davis (love, Love, LOVE it), and a few other odds & ends (a travel bowl set for the Sadie, an anti-gravity lounger for Stu and a couple of Gypsy Journal t-shirts.

Again, check out these blogs (I added a few since the last list) for their recent posts about the rally...LOTS of photos!
We stayed after the rally for a couple of days of downtime. We got a few chores done, did a little shopping, we went to see The American, and we continued to eat out too much (with friends and on our own...LOL!) We also stopped at Sam's Club where Stu found his perfect chair....Edith Ann has nothing on Stu, LOL!

Now we are moving eastward. We'll have several Wally World overnights and one campground night (outside Cincinnati where we will have dinner with my son and his wife). We should arrive in Maryland at Stu's step-daughters house sometime early Friday.

We'll be in Maryland at least through the first week in October (we always do the Red Helmet Ride the first Saturday in October). Much depends on getting Stu's knee looked at and what is recommended. After Maryland we'll move on to Jamestown, TN where we bought land last year. We hope to get a start on setting up a basic RV lot while there.

We'll winter in Florida, not sure where yet. February will be around Orlando since we are taking two older granddaughters to Universal Studios and Stu has his annual retired firefighter reunion there as well.

So that's the latest....hoping to get some good motorcycle riding in over the next few weeks. I need to get Gypsy well broken in and on her way to her 1k service.

So that's the roundup...

Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu


  1. Where do you camp in Florida??? We like Army Corps sites (because we ARE cheap), and there aren't many....From one retired firefighter's wife to Donna...God love ya for living through those middle of the night calls..But Den was a volunteer...back in the day...no fulltime paid guys at that firehouse, no way..

  2. Glad to hear you enjoyed the rally! :)

    Love the picture of Stu in the chair!! lol

    Happy and safe travels!


We're waiting.....
