I'm at the Good Sam Rally. Lordy, what a setup! The RV's are all parked at Balloon Fiesta Park in the NORTH end of town, up I-25. The Rally is at the EAST end of town. We have to take a shuttle bus and ride for 25 minutes. You can't just "hop a shuttle" and go back to your RV for lunch. I'm guessing that was planned on purpose, if you go back to your RV for lunch, you won't spend your money there. Well, the lines for the eating places are LOOOONNNNNNNGGGGGG so you end up cheating by stopping at the booths that are demonstrating neatsy new gadgets for cooking and they give you a bite, or you stop at the "check out this great dip" booth, and you eat pretzels and "sample" each and every dip, 25 varieties, the key lime dip was fantastic with animal crackers!
Plus, it's raining, mixed with snow.
Then, when you need to go back to your RV, you wait in line for TWO AND A HALF HOURS for a shuttle bus (I'm not kidding, I got in the LOOOOONNNNNNNNGGGGGGGG line at 2:00 and didn't get a bus until 4:30 because the line was way too long).
FOrtunately, the "entertainment" (Neil Sadaka one night, Rita Coolidge another night, 3 of the 5 Osmonds a third night.....) is near the Balloon Fiesta Park, just ride a tram over.
Speaking of the Trams, I was told to "remember your Tram Color." Ok, the Tram is blue and red. Ok, ALL the Trams are blue and red. They forgot to tell us to look at the "colored dot" on the windshield of the truck pulling the tram.
Rumor has it that they will add more busses tomorrow.
I am at an "electric only" section. This will be a trick, making my water tank last the entire time of the rally. Well, I do plan to go to the boondocking seminars.....
