Arizona update #2

After the show ended in Quartzsite, three rigs headed down to Yuma Arizona. Those rigs were the Kerchers, Hoovers, and Merriman. We stayed at West Wind RV and golf resort.

Southern Arizona is a popular destination for snow birds and Yuma is no exception. This year however, due to covid, there weren’t as many. For one thing, the Canadians were not able to come down due to travel restrictions.  We enjoyed some food and fellowship, as well as the flea market. We enjoyed about 5 days there and headed for home.

Arizona update #1

Hello Traveling Supremes,

Well, another Arizona tag along is in the books. Five rigs camped at Black Rock RV in Brenda Arizona. Brenda is located just off I 10 about 12 miles east of Quartzsite. Those who attended were the Kerchers, Hoover’s, Marrs, Merriman, and Stowes. 

We started out in Brenda Arizona at Black Rock RV. Brenda is about 12 miles East of Quartzsite where the annual RV show is held. The show went on despite covid, but the crowds were way down. The plus side was that parking was a lot easier than usual. 

While we were there, something unusual happened. It rained! Actually it rained a lot. So much that on the last day of the show, the big tent got flooded! I didn’t know it even rained in the desert! 

2022 Quartzsite

Hello Supremes,

The RV show in Quartzsite Arizona is set for January 22nd to Jan 30th 2022 according to the website quartzsitervshow.com. Some of us  have made reservations for the 22nd to the 29th.  If you are interested, call soon so you can get a site close to the group. We are at Black Rock in nearby Brenda. Call 928-927-4206. Jane is the group coordinator, but I think anyone can help you. You will have to put up a deposit, but you can get most of it back if you cancel outside of 30 days. Be sure to review the cancellation policy. As always, be sure to tell them you are with the Traveling Supremes. Also be aware that this is a tag-a-long, so come and go as you wish.

Some of us will go on to Yuma, so I will send additional information in a day or two.

Big Bend Tag-a-long

Hello Traveling Supremes,

I am pleased to announce that we are planning a tag-a-long to Lajitas, TX just outside of Big Bend National Park. Please check out the posting under “Rallies ” > “Upcoming rallies”. Or, just click here: https://travelingsupremes.com/2020-big-bend-np/

There you will find the information that you need to make your reservation. ‎The days will be warm so the activities will include sightseeing and meals, but no strenuous hiking. The evenings should be pleasant. They also have a pool and clubhouse. If you have questions, call Susan or myself. 

PS: For all you eagle eyed RVers, the motor home shown on the Maverick Ranch RV Park home page is…. wait for it…. a Travel Supreme select!

Photo challenge!

Here’s a neat idea, brought to us from our President Susan Kercher. Let’s have a photo challenge! Not sure what that is? Well, hang on…..

Your challenge will be to post one picture of any Traveling Supreme member of members, from any time or event. It would be nice if you also posted when and where the picture was taken. Let’s get some memories started!

You may be aware that we have a Facebook community page. You can go there from the search bar on top of the Facebook page. Just type in Traveling Supremes. You have to be a member to post here, if you’re not a member, it’s easy… just press the “Join” button and wait for a note letting you know you are a member. No credit cards, no forms, that’s it. You can now fully participate in any discussion, or start one of your own.

Once you are in the Community, you have many options. A few lines down you’ll see a section in a blue box labeled “Contact us”, and right below that you see the option “Publish”. Touch that and you will see this screen:

Now you can type whatever message you want. Below that is a green Photo button, press that and you will be able to select any photo in your camera roll. One note… if you’ve never done this before you will be asked if Facebook can access your pictures. Answer Yes.

You also have the option of adding a Check-in (where this picture was taken), how you feel about it, even open your camera and take one. Once complete, touch “Continue” in the top right and your glorious picture and comments will show up on Facebook for the world to see.

Try it! Any specific questions ask here, or on Facebook, and we’ll try to answer them.

Enjoy!

Yard signs

A&E signs, who manufactured our yard signs, has decided to discontinue making the individual yard signs. Too many signs were being returned as the post office bent or damaged them in shipment, and it was not cost-effective to replace the sign.

So if you have a sign fly it proudly, treat it as unique, because you can’t get a replacement.

Getting settled

Wagon master report

Hello Supremes,I hope that all of you are well. This year is almost gone‎ and most of us are glad to see it go. I look forward to better times in 2021 and hope that our personal and family lives will be more normal. Along with that, maybe our traveling and camping can resume. Upcoming events include New Years at Colfax campground Dec 28 thru Jan 2. There are 4 rigs going at this time so it will be more of a tag-a-long with no planned activities due to social distancing.

Also, there are 5 rigs going to Quartzsite AZ arriving on January 16, then going on to Yuma after the show. This is also a tag-a-long with no planned activities other than fun and fellowship.Also planned for 2021 is our annual trip to Chama. Official rally dates are August’s 16 thru August 21 but as you know, Chama is more of a come and go as you please event.

If you have questions about these events or if you would like to host an event in 2021, you can‎ call, text, or email me.Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
