The Quartzsite tagalong has been moved from the “Proposed” rallies section to the 2018 Upcoming Rallies. Jim and Tina Hoover have worked hard on this, 8 coaches are signed up, it will be a great event! Be sure to sign up soon if you are interested; click here for more information.
Buena Vista update
Picture of Hoovers and Butauds having lunch in Breckenridge at “The Lost Cajun ” restaurant. Easy day trip from BV. Drive from Buena Vista takes you through the towns of Fairplay and Alma. On the way, you go over Hoosier Pass at about 10,500 feet. Lots of shops and restaurants in Breckenridge. Trip was well worth the time.
Tomorrow, Jim and Lou will be “scouting” other RV parks in the BV area. BV continues to impress with what it has to offer.
And more (edited)….
There was some misunderstanding in the original post here, about putting member names and emails on line. That is NOT going to happen. What we should have said is to find a way for members who want it to automatically be notified of any new posts. This is already in our system, just click the “Follow” button (left side, under the menus), enter your email, and you will get the latest updates. Your name will NOT be posted or otherwise used. Don’t add your email, you won’t get updates.
Hope this clears up confusion based on my interpretation of the original request.
Ted and I have been in Sault Ste Marie with four other Traveling Supreme rigs since Saturday, July 15, 2017. We have had some great meals together including a delicious gumbo made by Ken Wellock and Marie Moreau! We’ve watched lots of ships go by on the lake every afternoon and have had lots of great conversations! We all depart on Saturday! This has been a great gathering!

Telling me I’ve taken enough of his time taking pictures!
The Buena Vista Tagalong has seen additional participants. Recently, in addition to the Butauds, we have Gene and Sarah Fisher, Jerry and Hessie Smith, and Jim and Tim Hoover stop by. A few of the many things to see and do in this area:
The Fishers, Smiths and Butauds attended a local theater production of “Madams of Central Colorado” on Saturday, July 8. This play recounts a bawdy side of BV history. It is based on factual events from the mid to late 1800s and early 1900s. The production is performed in the old Chaffee County Courthouse, which also serves as a museum. Performances are done 5 or 6 times each summer.
A nice drive took us to the Continental Divide. Water that drains on the east side flows to the Atlantic, and on the west side to the Pacific. Pizza in Leadville, CO (above 10,000ft. elevation), and whitewater rafting. So much to do!
Traveling Supreme members meet up at the FMCA National Rally in Indianapolis, IN. Pictured are Deanne & David Phillips, Dave Evans, and Les & Ida Cook. Dave Evans says hello to all & that he looks forward to seeing everyone at the Ohio & Indiana Gatherings next summer!
We are experimenting with a “For Sale” section. It has been added to our main menu. There are certain rules to follow, be sure to get approval from a TS Officer before sending For Sale info to John Laninga.
BV Tagalong update
From Lou Butaud: First picture is of Fishers, Smiths and Butauds doing what we do best – eating. Picture was taken at Shallots which is an excellent restaurant in Salida introduced to us by John and Romola Laninga. Second picture is birthday time for Chris and Hessie at Shallots. Yum! Cake!
Wondering if anyone is in Chama yet… Romola and I are near Durango and plan to go to the Hot Springs next Tuesday, July 11th. Would love to meet up with anyone that would like to join us at the Springs, or for lunch, or for dinner. Maybe at Boss Hog, where we had dinner last year…
The Laningas left last week to meet other obligations, John Brandon left a few days ago, but the Smiths (Jerry and Hessie) joined us. We enjoyed the Fourth festivities in Buena Vista, where we positioned ourselves near the Grace Church. The Smiths and Butauds attended the patriotic concert following the parade, held in the Grace Church. Also on display were quilts made by members of the Grace Church in honor of veterans. The “quilters” of BV have now made and donated about 1,000 quilts to veterans.
