2022 Arizona

Hello Traveling Supremes!

This year there were 3 rigs at Black Rock RV park in Brenda Arizona for the big rv show in Quartzsite. It was Jim and Tina Hoover, Duane and Patty Stowe, and Steve and Lisa Merriman. The event was very well attended and it did not appear that covid fears were a factor. We all enjoyed the show as well as the flea market and a lot of fun and fellowship. 

After a fun filled week, the three rigs loaded up and drove the 90 miles to Yuma. There we were joined by Pete Minnix and Ted and Susan Kercher even drove over to spend a few days with us!  We enjoyed food, fun, fellowship and flea market shopping. Most of all, we enjoyed the mild weather with plenty of sunshine. That was quite a contrast with the cold weather that our neighbors were experiencing back home. In fact, many of the people here are Canadians seeking warm weather. Last year they weren’t here due to travel restrictions so they were as glad to be here as we were. They are really nice folks.

Well, it’s time to head east, so I will see ya’ll in Lubbock!

Vaya con Dios amigos!

2022 Yuma


On Jan 29, immediately following the Quartzite gathering, we will ‎check out of Black Rock and drive the 90 or so miles to Yuma to check into West Wind RV Resort. We plan to stay 9 days and check out Feb 7. The number is 866-440-2992. Ask about the 1/2 price special and use my name to be near the group. They said to pass along that anyone interested should call soon. I’m not sure how long West Wind will have the special. This is a tag-a-long so these dates are just what some of us are doing, but you can set any dates you want.

Vaya con Dios amigos!

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!

Traveling Supremes in Yuma, AZ

Traveling Supremes in Yuma‎ 

After the Quartzsite tag along, some of the Traveling Supremes went down to Yuma (about 90 miles south) to visit members Louis and Leona Keyser at their winter place. Making the trip were TS members; Jim and Tina Hoover, Paul and Tandy Krugler, Pete and Mary Minnix, Roger and Jo Marr along with their friends Frank and Maureen McWillams and of course Louis and Leona Keyser.

‎In the Traveling Supreme tradition there was good food, fun and fellowship and a few card games. We went shopping at a local flea market that had lots of RV supplies as well as other goods. We even went to prison! The old Yuma territorial prison that is! 

Great fun and great friends. I can’t wait until our next TS gathering in Elephant Butte NM.

Vaya con Dios amigos!

Quartzite Tag-a-long

By Susan Kercher

Jim and Tina Hoover’s Quartzsite tag-a-long came to an end after nine nights of fun and cameradery. Louis and Leona Keyser, Paul and Tandy Krugler, Pete and Mary Minnix and Ted and myself rounded out the members. We also brought guests Warren and Joyce Blakely into the tag-a-long for the week.

The RV Show was the big draw to Quartzite and we all attended the show numerous times (thankful for the shuttle) as we learned of something new someone else had found or after thinking over what we had seen. Most of us also took the opportunity to look at new and used RV’s for sale. I thought a couple of people were close to making a purchase! But alas, no one walked away with a new RV!

The group took advantage of the campground cafe being open this year! Reviews were mixed on the food but overall everyone seemed to enjoy. We also had lunch in town and dinner at the local Mexican restaurant. Saturday night we invited some friends of ours to the campground for dinner at the Cafe with the group. We had met them in Fresno and they are full time RVer’s. They were boon-docking for the week and it was interesting to hear about their experience.

We ended most days with a nice campground fire…thank you Jim and Tina! We had lots of stories and laughs and I think Tina managed to get a few campground card games going. In my opinion…a good time was had by all!
