From Las Vegas I circled back to California for the Tiffin Allegro Club Spring Rally. The Allegro Club, for Tiffin RV owners, puts on three rallies per year throughout the country where a few hundred folks gather for seminars and socializing. They are quite the draw and difficult to get in to, selling out within minutes of registration opening on line. Literally! This rally sold out in 2.5 minutes. You have to be set up on the webpage and ready to hit enter exactly at the opening bell.
Over 200 coaches descended on the Golden Village Palms RV Resort in the town of Hemet. The week is filled with informative seminars on all sorts of topics, social events, including dinner each night, and the opportunity to meet, greet, and get to know Tiffin owners from all over. For example, I went to seminars covering my hydraulic leveling system, my radio/GPS Navigation system, cooking in a convection microwave, my generator and a few others.
But by far the best part was the people I met, by pure chance. The first night a group of four couples sat next to me at dinner. I thought they all knew each other but it turns out they’d all just met the day before. By the end of dinner they’d invited me to join them for post dinner imbibery and over the next four days we managed to become quite a group of friends……of which I have exactly 0 pictures. I now have a few less brain cells, several less healthy liver cells, and a new group of excellent folks to happily call, Friends. It was a great week.
Yesterday I pulled in to Prescott, Arizona where, minus a couple of quick trips back east for important events, I will be for a month.
