HELLO HAPPY WANDERERS, my how time flies by, it’s already time again for the chapter notes.  By the time you read this, the Spearfish rally with be done and in the history books.

Once again I would like to welcome our new members Gene and Linda Barron of San Antonio Texas and also Dusan Maly and Nichole Wheeler of Jupiter, Florida.

In the next issue we’ll be telling you about all the great things we did during the National – but for know we’ll fill you in on things that are happening after that.

The Happy Wanderers will be having a Pre-Rally to the Southeast Regional Rally from January 9-12, 2019, you will have to make the reservations on your own at 800-350-6731, tell them you will be attending the ACA Regional and you would like to park with the Happy Wanderers Chapter.

We have a few things planned for our chapter while at Lazy Days and of course they have to do with eating such as a trip to Parksdale Farms for Strawberry Shortcake. Parksdale also carries all kinds of Vegetables and fruits to purchase. We also have in mind a couple more adventures that you will enjoy.

The Happy Wanderers Chapter continues to work with other chapters to schedule additional fun events across the country so keep checking our communication options for updates and we welcome everyone’s suggestions.  Any members from other chapters are welcome to join us at any of our events as well other chapters will welcome you to their events.

Your officers are working hard on the future of the chapter and we welcome any and all suggestions that may forward our progress in coming together for camaraderie and enjoyment.  The “Happy Wanderers” include those who travel Full Time or travel between Winter and Summer locations or those who travel extensively through the country.  Many of us have been on the road for many years without a home base and have a lot of answers to questions about full timing.  Betty and I were on the road and homeless for nearly 17 years as have many others in our chapter and feel qualified to answer questions asked by those who wish to do the same.

The Happy Wanderers do not compete with other chapters for members: however many of our members belong to other chapters and enjoy the “Happy Wanderers” for our RV experience and FUN, FOOD and FELLOWSHIP.

With our diversity, we plan our “RENDEZVOUS” around Pre and/or Post Rallies at the ACA National, Regional and other Chapter Rallies
