We are hanging out in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this week, visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, so I don’t have much to write about from an RV standpoint. We’re parked at the Elks lodge, which is about five miles from their house and has full hookup 50 amp RV sites for $20 a night.
If you don’t belong to the Elks and Moose, you really should become a member. It will give you a lot of very good overnight parking opportunities. If you would like to join the Elks and are going to be at the Escapees Escapade rally in Tucson, the Elk C-BoF on the ROW at Escapade has arranged with the Willcox Elks lodge to hold an expedited indoctrination and initiation on Monday, March 16, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
I will be presenting five seminars at Escapade, Highway History & Back Road Mystery, The Frugal RVer, Welcome to My Arizona, The Reluctant RVer, and Full-Timing FAQs. I hope we see a lot of you at the rally. My buddy Greg White will also be presenting his popular Gate Guarding seminar in Tucson.
Originally I had planned to do a separate half-day self-publishing workshop before or after the Escapade, but the fairgrounds has another rally scheduled and there won’t be a place to hold it available or RV parking for anybody who wanted to attend.
I wanted to introduce my son Travis to sport kite flying while we were here, but there hasn’t been any wind since we arrived in Tuscaloosa. The weather has been nice, in the mid-60s during the day and the mid-to-upper 30s at night, though we are supposed to see some rain in the next couple of days. We’re hoping for a little bit of wind before we leave town. Knowing my luck, it will stay calm until we have to get back on the road and then start to blow.
