Hankering here! OK so I DID change my mind, I am in Bozeman at the International. Red 2 Row 2 #17241...more soon.

That aluminum transmits real silver power, it has control...

There is plenty of green here, view of the mountains all around and gorgeous campus.

Way to go Carol. Send us some pictures please...and some commentary on what's happening. My Georgia unit says that the motorhome issue isn't necessarily dead, just in a coma 'till next year.

Hi Carol! I loved your slideshow. Brought back great memories of riding across Montana, Idaho, the northwest (in my case Eastern Oregon not Washington). It's beautiful country out there, for sure. I could live in Idaho anyday, just find me a job.

Enjoy Bozeman! Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Had a great time at the International. I saw so many old and new friends. Laura and Ralph, Michael, Leo, thanks all, so good to see you again. Saw the usual suspects in vintage, cool as always!!! My new neighbors Kate and Tuney, Glenda and Howard, Gail and Don, you ROCK!

Tom, I sat through the delegate voting and Leo Garvey and Bob Thompson gave them a great run with their many unanimous units' votes. It was great. Good job of running from the floor guys, next year, you bet! I didn't hear more than rumors about the MoHo issue coming up while I was in attendance, but there were more meetings than the one I went to. Members of the 2020 committee met at the VAC tent for feedback. There was much interest and comments and ideas.

Usual glitzes for facilities, had to spend the night without electricity and make some inquieries to get the electricians out the next day, the pump-out schedule stuck with dates with stubborn stickers I can't get off was abandoned, dog waste bins were collected two days before the rally ended, many vendors and participants were long gone before July 5th, (nothing new there.)

We had gusty winds each evening and a good dirt storm outside the stadium one day, and at least one awning torn off by the arms. We raced around closing awnings, ours and others not present.

Orie placed second in the pet show for tricks, just for fun and doggie socialization, I entered him to catch his kong from high tosses, really surprised me to take a ribbon for it. I'm a proud mama and little Orie had his 5 minutes of fame.

Some of the entertainment was great, much was geared for the old timers as was even the new nightstreamers dance which was restricted to country western...the dj could not play "Baby's got Back." No young people were in attendance and only one couple was actually dancing before Laura and I took a pass on it.

The vintage parade was one of the best, many units gorgeous day, impressive. The traditional fourth of July parade was indoors as usual and I left after 2 units showing, more akin to micro skits of fun and antics with a theme.

Caught the installation of officers, they played the graduation march coming in, white tuxes formal gowns, lots of speeches and pinning going on. Also caught a glimpse of the formal dinner setting before hand, very swank.

There were two WBCCI bands both terrific. Ballroom dancing was fun to watch and listen to and I wondered how they looked 50 years ago, still sweet and energetic to this day. Someone should decorate the area for ambiance.

Cow pie toss was outside but with frisbies. Wish that event had lasted longer. Due to the number of participants it went quickly.

Many meetings, get-togethers, socials, breakfasts, etc., were held off site across town such as at the Holiday Inn. I would much prefer to remain on site for those kind of activities.

Nightlife in a college town was super and food was great as well. I rode my bike to town on the bike path with friends and had a nice meal on the patio, another time was treated to my first Tapas experience and loved it, and did one evening of bar hopping and I kept to soda only as designated driver. I discovered I don't need to drink to be loud, that's just really me.

Thanks Jaxon, Ruby Beach was so unique to me. Lou, Steph and Jamie, I should be home soon, thanks for the kudos and encouragement.

Here are a few random shots from the rally.

And another "survivor," Shari (Maxwell) past president of the VAC surrounded by her fork garden and tribute from her devotees. The significance, I asked...stick a fork in it, she's done!

Hi Gals! I have some back tracking and catching up to do. I'll do my best. I have been off grid too long, darn, darn.

My stay at Fairmont Montana was next to a beautiful pasture and surrounded by mountains with plenty of big sky and interesting sights.

Most of these were taken right at my site...until the 5 day bicycle event filled the area with hundreds of tents last evening. I came home from a scenic drive and was amazed at the transformation! This was my spot for several days before moving on to Bozeman for the rally. The palm trees were at a gas station in Deer Lodge and the sign was in town at the end of my drive.
