Hello SoCal Members,

We had a great time on the Rolling Rally in route to the Spearfish National Rally. 15 to 18 of our chapter headed out on August 8th on a northern track and then east on the I-70 stopping at several locations and restaurants then landing at Devils Tower a couple of days prior to our Pre Rally in Spearfish. Joe and Debbie Darby had some air conditioning issues before leaving Camarillo and played catchup on day 3 with an 18 hour drive by “Ironman Joe” to join the group.

Spearfish was a great Rally! Very nice RV resort, good weather, plenty to do in the local area and 122 coaches from around the country. We even had a wedding at our final night dinner. I think that was a first.

With Spearfish in the rear view mirror our group all went in separate directions. Loretta and I headed south to visit some friends in Colorado and then planned to take a few days in Santa Fe New Mexico. However as luck would have it that time was spent in Trinidad CO behind a repair shop waiting for an alternator repair. The bright side was the folks that towed our rig down the mountain own J.M Tire and Towing and were great to deal with. They got us back on the road as quickly as possible, gave us directions on things to see in the local area and were extremely fair with the costs of the repairs. If you ever need help in that area I would strongly suggest giving them a call. (719) 859-4282

SoCal did not wait long for our next trip, The Rally at the Rock in beautiful Morro Bay just finished

9-21st – 24th. This location on the beach overlooking the Bay and Morro Rock offers everyone a chance to experience the great pacific and share some time with playful otters and sea lions. Many thanks to the Darby’s and Rose’s for hosting this rally which everyone enjoyed. Since it takes about a year to reserve these popular sites things are already in the works for another visit.

Just a reminder about our 2019 schedule. All the details can be found on the SoCal Site www.socalaca.com just click on the rally tab for details.
