With the Affinity rally over, yesterday morning we said goodbye to several of our vendor friends and made ready to pull out of Albuquerque. We were both more than ready to be somewhere else. I don’t like cliques. I didn’t like them in high school, and I find them even more childish in people our […]

The Affinity rally ended yesterday, and while we had a good time visiting with old friends and meeting some new ones, it was a break even event for us financially. While we’d have loved to come away with buckets full of cash, going in we said that if we could cover our costs and introduce […]

The Rally, Affinity’s annual big blowout RV event ends today, and not a moment too soon for us. While we have really enjoyed being with so many of our RV friends, the rally itself hasn’t been much fun at all, and sales were very poor for so large a gathering. We may attend another one […]

At least the weather cleared up here in Albuquerque, and though it wasn’t exactly warm yesterday, it wasn’t snowing either. We had a busy day helping out in the RV Hall of Fame Museum booth, and managed to pass out a lot of copies of the Gypsy Journal, and to make a sale or two […]

Yesterday was the first vending day at The Rally, and while vendors in the past have told me they did gangbuster business at earlier events, so far I don’t think anyone here in Albuquerque is setting any sales records. That may be partly due to the fact that the rally attendees are parked at the […]

Yesterday we were running around in short sleeve shirts, but that didn’t last long! By evening it had turned downright chilly here in Albuquerque, and today’s high is only supposed to be 53 degrees! We spent most of yesterday printing off copies of our various RV guides and making CDs to sell during the rally. […]

For whatever reason, once we were parked at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds Tuesday after driving to Albuquerque from Show Low, Arizona, I just could not get to sleep. I tossed and turned all night long, and I think I managed about two or three hours of sleep at the most. Since we arrived at […]

It’s a good thing that fulltime RVers write their schedules in Jello, because right now, we’re wading knee deep in it! We had planned to leave Show Low Lake Campground on Wednesday and drive to Albuquerque to get settled into the vendor parking area for the big Affinity rally. However at this point, we don’t […]

I spent most of yesterday setting up my new computer, loading all of the programs I use into it, and transferring projects I had been working on from my laptop to the new desktop unit. Even though the laptop and the desktop are both Dell computers using Windows XP, there were still enough things that […]
