The Gypsy Gathering Rally at the Pinal County Fairgrounds in Casa Grande is over. It was a lot of fun and Nick, our host has penciled in another rally in February of 2008. He will let us all know about it through his bi-monthly newspaper for RVers, called The Gypsy Journal. I'm sure we will attend if it actually happens.

We attended several seminars including: All about Awnings by Russ Maxwell; Fire Safety by Mac McCoy (excellent!); Highway History & Back Road Mystery (Nick wrote this great book and put excerpts in the Gypsy Journal) by Nick Russell; RVing the Heartland of America (I LOVED this one) by Dave Baleria and The Frugal RVer ( I read this book by Nick as well) by Nick Russell. We also joined in the pizza party and watched the Cactus Queen beauty contest. We went to one early morning coffee and donuts gathering. Finally after three nights of door prizes it paid off when last night we won a free night at Picacho Peak RV Park (between Casa Grande and Yuma) and one free year of The Gypsy Journal! There were hundreds of wonderful door prizes and lots of happy winners. There was also a White Elephant Auction where many people, for very little money got some great bargains.

One of our regular readers Bill introduced himself and his wife, Diane. That was fun to put a face to the name after he contacted us over a year ago when we were both in Florida and has followed our blog ever since. Bill is also a datastorm user and you can check out his website at:
