FMCA Rally in Indio

I had a great time at the Western Area FMCA Rally that was held at the Riverside County Fairgrounds located in Indo, CA. There were around 1,000 motor homes parked on the grounds.

The big thing that I did at this rally was to have a new satellite dish installed. The old one had such outdated technology that it could not find the right satellite.

Another thing that I did was join The Golden Spike Chapter of FMCA. They are a group of neat people who are railroad fans like myself.

They had some good entertainment in the evenings. One singing group was called Beachfront Property. They sounded much like the Modernairs or Manhattan Transfer.

On The Road Again

I have just attended the Western Area FMCA Rally that was held in Indio last week. I am currently in Blythe, CA attending a Bluegrass Festival that will take place at the end of this week. I have met up with some bluegrass friends that I made two years ago while attending this same festival. We sat around a camp fire and told stories under a clear sky that was loaded with stars. The temperature was in the high 50s. A great time was had and we will do the same thing this evening.

At this very moment, I am in Quartzsite checking out the location of the Monaco group that I will be spending two weeks with after the Bluegrass Festival is over. They are out here in the desert somewhere. I stopped at the Quartzsite Library and jumped on the Internet to make this post. I would take forever to upload pictures so I will forgo those this time. Hopefully I will have time and the patients to upload them in the near future.
