OK!! I know I've been sluffing off on the job, but I've been so busy trying to see what's all going on around here at the Rally that I've not posted on this blog!!!
I'll try to do better..
When we first came into the Rally Park, (you come in from the opposite direction from where this photo was taken), we stopped and registered here at the entrance to the park. Then, Howard or one of the other volunteers led you to your site.
This is what it looked like, the first day we were here, (Friday), before many of the others arrived. That's Howard and Linda's rig to the right of us and Jim is standing on the walkway up to the pavilion across the street
This is what it looked like after most of the other RVs arrived on Saturday.
The view from our site looking across the street towards the pavilion.
The pavilion is where all the meetings are and meals are eaten. In these 2 photos everyone is waiting to have a great breakfast.
Breakfast is served!!!
Jim and Linda have been spending quite a bit of time with these folks that they met at the first rally way back in 2008.
Of course there are lots of other folks that Jim and Linda have met and become friends with throughout the years, but Jim has been kind of lax in taking photos.
Maybe he'll take more in the next few days. :-)
So far, there's been a Welcome Dinner an Ice Cream Social, a Breakfast and a Pot Luck Diner. There's also been Games in the afternoon, and a Campfire every evening.
Today, there a bunch of people going Zip Lining and to Food Tours. There are activities planned for most days and if there isn't, you can always take a drive up on the Blue Ridge Parkway or see other sites that aren't very far from here.
Did you know that North Carolina is the largest producer of sweet potatoes in the nation?
