Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017!

(A note from your webmaster – we were out of country with limited internet for 6 weeks so I got behind on my blog and web site additions.  But they’re coming, stay tuned!)

2016 was a good year with good times and memories for the Traveling Supremes. Special thanks to Ted and Susan Kercher for hosting the New Year’s Rolling Rally in Las Vegas, Pahrump and Death Valley. I loved seeing the photos on Facebook. Looks like it was another good Traveling Supremes experience.

2017 promises to bring many more good times and future good memories. I’m ready to get started. Are you?

Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions yet? Let’s forget about the boring standard ones (lose weight, exercise more, write the novel, win the lottery, etc.) and make some special Traveling Supremes resolutions.

  • Resolution #1: Attend TS Rallies and Gatherings. And do we ever have some outstanding ones coming up. Tag-Along in March to the Passport America Rally in Tucson, AZ. In April we will travel to Canton, TX for the Trade Days and immediately following will travel to Bullard, TX at Bushman’s Camp Gathering. Summer brings us to Buena Vista, CO, Ruidoso, NM and Chama, NM. Our annual TS Business Meeting Rally will be held in September followed by a Kentucky trip to see the lifesize replica of Noah’s Ark. Check out the Future Rallies section of this newsletter for specifics and hosts. Join us!
  • Resolution #2: Did you see your name in the Future Rallies section? How about resolving to put it there by hosting a Rally or Gathering. If you’re unsure or would like someone to help host, get with me. We can make it happen!
  • Resolution #3: Spread the word about our Traveling Supremes Club. We have a super new website. Check it out and refer friends, old and new, to give us a look and join. The more Club members we have, the more good times we have!

I recently saw a quote reminding me to personally keep these resolutions. I think you’ll recognize the author.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” Mark Twain.

Let’s all travel supremely in 2017!


From Gail Smith:

I recently heard from Dave and Deanne Phillips that as they were reading a website that they enjoy online, they discovered the following web site about RVing:  click here .  Please check this site out at your convenience.

So now we are in the spotlight and were singled out as an “RV Travel Club that they like“! We feel this is in part due to the fact that, after many months of hard work and research by our website team, we now have our new website up and running! We are having lots of traffic and many visitors, possibly due to our new location on Google’s search engine list.

Other news, however, is not so good. Two of our members are undergoing lung surgery in the latter part of January–Jim Hoover (on the 23rd) and Carol Butaud (on the 20th). Please keep both of them in your prayers and let them know we are here for them!

Hope to see you all in Bullard, TX in the spring!

Gail Smith, President

The new year is here


Well, 2017 is here (just) and our new web site is here.  A great big thanks to Bobbie Bayles, who so competently managed our web site all these years!    Our new web master is John Laninga, who can be reached via phone at 828-817-3737 or email at

A few notes:   If you click on the little blue “Follow Traveling Supremes” link in the left sidebar, you can enter your email address.  Then whenever there is a new update you will be notified.  Also, the little calendar in the left sidebar shows the date whenever a new post is added.  So you will always be up to date.

Also note that this web site will run well on a tablet or phone as well.  If you use a mobile device, you will see a small square in the top bar with three lines in it.  Touch this and you will get the menu selections.

Remember, this web site is as useful as you make it so feel free to send me pictures or articles for inclusion on the site.  Let’s make this a great year!
