BlogOn

It has been awhile since I blogged on RainbowBlog. I sit down to write but end up working on other parts of the site then surf too long to write good content.  What I decided to do is just Blog when I feel like and often.  Blogs are personal and only open to subscribed members of the site. and what the hell, like any RainbowBlogger,  I can edit the words I don't want to eat.

Tim and I are winding down the third year at the helm of RainbowRV.  Members often ask if we thought it would be different or less of an effort?  I remind them that Tim is one of those 'All out - All or Nothing' types and I am his biggest supporter.  We have worked together 24 7 for the last 23 years  as self employed Contractors.  You can imagine  in all those years  we have enjoyed  ups, and endured  downs. Tim has an encouraging way to help us also enjoy  the realtime success in picking ourselves up.  He is motivated and our endeavors with the club have never been dull.  We always understood  stewardship would be an  arduous effort and  realized we were 'ducks out of water' so there was a learning curve but our history together proved most  endeavors worth the experience.  Different? I had no expectation.. Less Effort? Learning is an effort I enjoy. Image of old rv is from the origional rainbowrv website

Tim and I love Rainbow RV events and look forward to Riverside Mission Inn Christmas KampTrip.  We planned and saved to attend the Florida December event with Chip but  issues with family force us to stay close and ready to respond to the drama we have going on with our personal lives here in California.  Florida Chapter of Rainbow RV is much like California where the group is large but split up due to the distance between members.  Our chapter Rep Chip has work tirelessly keeping the group active and together.  Like my Tim, Chip is motivated and one of those 'All or Nothing' types.    Chip also gives me motivational talks ,kind words and professional insite dealing with my mothers changing health.  I'm lucky to have Tim and Chip for candid talks.

OK... Mush Mush Mush ,now for  fun past stuff and KampDish

CAPismo2011..... What a blast. there were 250 members and over 120 rigs. Tim and I arrived several days early and dry camped at the state park ($25.00) a night.  We moved into Pismo Coast Village on a Wednesday  and set up Tim's new Wall of lights. The things he dreams up. 70 foot long and 16 foot High. The display took 8 people to put up. Milton, John, Don Dennis, Tim, two passers by and I erected the structure and threw the switch for what turned out to be a show stopper.  Tim hosted a Dog Drag show. Steve, Craig, Jim and Tony did the Bingo.  There were two potlucks, several trophy competitions and great early morning coffee gatherings.  I wish there was a way to centralize the meeting area but all in all ,anyplace members camped was not too far of a walk.
