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.
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!
After our Annual Business Meeting the James Smith’s, the Cooks, the Braly’s and the Kercher’s took off for New Orleans. We stopped for the night, September 27th, at River View RV Park, a really nice park, in Vidalia, Louisiana. We sat out in the afternoon and went to dinner at Rioux 61 as recommended by some of the Louisiana folks! We all had a great dinner and evening.
The next morning we headed down to New Orleans! We stayed at Ponchartrain Landing RV Park for three nights.
Some of the highlights include the sights and sounds of the French Quarter including Pat O’Brien’s, the WWII Museum (fantastic), beignets at Cafe Du Monde, the French market, dinner at Pascal’s Manale, dinner and entertainment at our campground and more!
I especially enjoyed having never been to New Orleans. It was a fun tag-a-long and today we all headed out for other places!
James and Gail Smith and Ted and Susan Kercher are heading to New Orleans after the General Meeting in Ruston, Louisiana. We leave Ruston on the 27th of September and stay somewhere in between and arrive in New Orleans on the 28th.
We are going to stay at Pontchartrain Landing, the address is 6001 France Road, New Orleans. Their phone number is 877-376-7850. It’s $61 per night (pull through full hook up site) and is paid in full at time of reservation. It is NONREFUNDABLE unless you pay a 10% trip cancellation charge. We are staying 3 nights, leaving on October 1st.
The campground is 12 minutes from the French Quarter and right on the water. They have a shuttle to town for $6 per day per person. There is a bar and grill on site with live music and BBQ and local cuisine.
This is a tag-a-long and there are lots of things to do in the area, but there will not be any planned activities arranged in advance. If you have nothing planned after the General Business, plan to join us in New Orleans!
