Winchester Bay, OR
Wagonmasters: Judy and Lee Keeler hosted another of their fantastic rallies.
John and Marie Turner, Ken and Judy Schindler, Roger and Colleen Wright, Ben Paschall and Penny Braden, Bob and Peggy Beers, Jack and Joan Lindhorst, Gene and Carol Nemish, Bob and Maggi Stevens, Chuck Hasman, Al Zimmerman, Bill and Paula Shull
Sunshine and sunburns, foggy dew and a sprinkle or two, we had it all at Winchester Bay.
There was much to see and do at Winchester Bay RV Resort and in nearby Reedsport. The shopping and bits of interest of the little town of Winchester Bay are easily reached by walking trails. Several of us enjoyed the adjacent bike trails including 2 smarty-pants (Chuck and Bob, you know who you are) rode 14 miles on Saturday. The 65-foot tall Umpqua River lighthouse is right there also. On the weekend in nearby Reedsport there was a great Chainsaw Carving competition. Also in Reedsport, the Umpqua Discovery Center has outstanding natural and cultural history displays where most of us spent at least 3 hours enjoying them.
The Keelers cooked a wonderful meal of pulled pork and hosted perfect breakfasts including fresh fruit. What a super potluck, with double the delicious choices when Keelers teamed us up with the Oregon RV Women group sharing the same clubhouse room the next evening.
Weigh-to-Go folks were there at the Resort so many of us got to have our rigs weighed to make sure we had well-balanced loads. Hendersons Line-Up did a seminar on Monday and provided us with many more ways to make our beloved Treks even more lovable.
There were 12 Treks at this terrific rally. One of our new members was brand-new to RVing and this was their first rally. Five of the group caravanned down to Coos Bay to enjoy the FMCA Northwest Area Rally to continue the fun.
