“Aww – Spring! Winter is in our rear-view mirror and it’s time to plan our summer outings. As more and more people are purchasing RV’s, there are increasing difficulties finding available openings at RV parks – be it for overnight stays or longer durations. The difficulties intensify over the summer and holidays. The Traveling Supremes have a jam-packed summer schedule of Gatherings and Tag-Alongs. Spaces have been set aside at each of the parks where we plan to stay. But – these spaces are limited and availability will terminate about a month before the scheduled event. So, act now! Check out the “Future Rallies” section of TravelingSupremes.com for details on reservations. Make your reservation and join us in the summer fun.
Our summer will fly by and before we realize it, Fall will be upon us. In October, James and Gail Smith will be hosting our annual Traveling Supremes Business Meeting. This is an event that is important to attend as well as one that is always packed with things to do. And, of course, there’s always YUMMY FOOD!
We don’t yet have hosts for the 2018/19 New Year’s Rally. Suggestions for places and parks might include Stella Mare RV Resort, a new park in Galveston; Johnson Creek RV Resort in Ingram; The Vineyards at Fredericksburg RV Park in Fredericksburg; Judge Felix Poche Plantation RV Park in Convent, LA; Poche’s RV Park and Fish-N-Camp in Breaux Bridge, LA. These are only a few possibilities to stimulate ideas! In order for us to have this popular event, it is necessary for someone to step forward to host. No Volunteers = No New Year’s Rally. Call, text or email me and volunteer. The Club needs you!”

The 2018 General Business Meeting and Rally will be held October 10-14, 2018 in Aledo, Texas (just west of Ft. worth). It will be hosted by James and Gail Smith. We will stay at the Cowtown RV Park, 7000 Interstate 20 East (exit 418), Aledo. They are holding spots for us until September 15. You may reserve by calling 817-441-7878 and ask for Janie. She is aware of details for us especially for those with larger rigs. She has a special section for 40-45 foot rigs. Our rally rate is $31 per night and includes rally room. We will forward itinerary and activity details later, but there should be lots of fun things to do in this area!
Hope you’re getting excited about our New Years Gathering, because it’s gonna be the best one ever! Lots of rigs are signed up and the hosts have been hard at work on the Agenda. And it is a great one, with lots of activities for one and all.
There will be fun, frivolities, companionship, and some serious historical visits. And not to forget food…. and food…. and food. Diets are to be checked in on arrival and may be reclaimed after the Rally.
So check out all the activities, and if you haven’t signed up yet do so quick. We just want to sure that everyone that wants to attend will have a space. Full details under the Main Menu, go to Rallies, Upcoming Rallies, and the 2018 New Year page. Or, just click here
Today we are adding our Face Book Page to the blog. So any post here will also be shown on our Face Book page. So the first benefit of this is that any blog is now publicly available. But more importantly, if you become a Friend on Face Book, you can also post on it! So now you can alert people to places you’ve been, sights you’ve seen, and in general keep up to date with all members of the TS FB page.
So if you go to the TS Face Boo page ask to be a Friend and you will be connected real time to everyone else who is friends. You will be able to let everyone know about special places to stay, where not to go, whatever you think is important.
Think of this as sitting around a virtual fire sharing stories with your TS friends! Give us a few days to fully implement this new feature, but we thought you may want to know. You can reach the site at TS Face Book.
Some time ago, we received a request from an TS motor home owner (non TS member) about having the X-Bracing done. We contacted him and gave him some information (I had it done on my TS). I got this response from him today:
“I just had the X bracing done at Pauls RV in Wakarusa, Ind. They got me in and worked on it immediately. I ended up staying in my coach while they worked on it. My windshields were so loose at top I could put my hand thru to the inside.
I had x\the X bracing done and windshield hoop, they know exactly what to do. My front cap mounting brackets at the bottom had come loose so they glassed them back in but my cap was still sagging so I suggested a generator hoop.
They raised the front cap and installed rectangular tubing under windshield and welded to the frame. It really made the front end a lot quieter. So if i can be of any assistance to anyone in the Supremes please give them my number.
I will be very happy to answer any questions. Thank you for your earlier reply.
PS: Pauls RV management/workers includes former Travel Supreme and Precision Painting employees”
So our Internet presence has helped someone outside the club. If someone wants to contact him let me know and I will give you his phone number. I have suggested they join our club. I thought this may be of interest to other club members because of the new contact for having work done on our Travel Supremes.

Half way between Yellowstone NP and Glacier NP lies the town of Deer Lodge, pop. 3,100. We camped there, had some time, and found the Old Montana Prison. This was the first Montana prison, with a rather notorious history of greed, corruption and prisoner abuse (it was built primarily with convict labor). It now houses 5 museums, we visited two: the Prison Museum, and the Car Museum. It was well worth the time. One of the nicest car collections we’ve seen in a long time, and the Prison tour was chilling. We recommend a stopover here! Below are just a few pictures I took:
