James & Gail Smith have worked very hard trying to secure a RV Park so we could attend the Earth Art Festival & the Rock Stacking Championship. However, they have been unable to find accommodations so we will have to cancel this event. It has been removed from Future Rallies. Maybe next year!
Wagon master notes
This is an excellent time to light the fire, snuggle up to the fireplace, and think about future rallies. Our VP and Wagon Master, DeAnne Phillips, has also given this much thought and wrote an excellent reminder for all of us. You can find it under the Officers Page, or click here and scroll down to DeAnne Phillips.
Just added the official 2017 Business Meeting Report. Since we already had a menu option entitled “2017 Business Meeting”, this was changed to “Onalaska Rally”. Then the Business Meeting Report was added as a menu option under the “Member page” menu option. Confused?
The 2017 Onalaska Rally is under “Past Rallies”, or click here
The 2017 Business Meeting Report is under “Member page”, or click here
The 2017 Business Meeting was held in Onalaska, Texas. There were 12 rigs in attendance, and a great time was had by all. The report may be found under the menu (left) Rallies and then Past Rallies. Or, just click here. A few pictures, many more in the report:

Ted and I left Alabama last Friday afternoon. We spent that night in Mississippi and then two nights in West Monroe, Louisiana at our friends’ (Polk and Linda) home on their RV pad! On Monday we arrived in Onalaska, Texas with 12 other Traveling Supreme rigs! On Monday we had a group dinner, Tuesday we had lunch at Manny’s Shrimp Boat and then went to a very cool rock shop! Wednesday we had a member give a really interesting presentation on metal detecting, along with a boat ride on a pontoon boat for all interested members and another great meal fixed by our hosts! Today we headed to a Texas prison museum. It was very interesting and there are pictures of the great things the prisoners are capable of making.
Next stop was lunch at the Farmhouse Cafe! They have yummy dinner rolls and cornbread. Ted and I had salads and shared banana pudding pie! From there we went to the Sam Houston Museum. Our tour guide had tons of amusing anecdotes. A fun day, followed by a light supper at the clubhouse! Tomorrow we all head out for other adventures! Thank you Deanne and David Phillips, our great wagon masters!
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.
