6/08 Ocean City, NJ & motorhome clubs

We took a couple of days and went to Ocean City, NJ where Doug's mom was spending a week with Doug's brother's John and his family. She rented a house right on the beach/dunes and they managed to get her into the ocean up to her ankles. The first evening, a thunderstorm blew in from the west and we were able to get some beautiful photos of the angry sky. It was a really great time with family. Dee's sister and her family were staying at a house just a few blocks up the beach so several of them drove over to the campground to our motorhome to see where we live. Tara's little boy, was just enthralled with the motorhome so we had to take his photo sitting in the driver's seat. One day, maybe he will be like Doug driving his own motorhome.! Naturally, since we are not really beach and sand folks, we had to do the typical shore things of walking the boardwalk, buying salt water taffy, fudge, and peanut brittle made right there on the boardwalk. We also went looking for shells and enjoyed just moseying along the shore line with our feet in the cold water and the waves lapping over them. We had to say goodbye and leave the family early because we had a previous commitment to attend our old GMC motorhome club, the Colonial Travelers, at a rally in Quakertown, PA. There is a photo of Madame president, Janet bring the meeting to order in her colonial garb. It was good to visit with friends we haven't seen for over a year and to play Mexican Train dominoes with them. From the GMC Colonial Travelers we traveled to New Holland, PA where we attended our first Tiffin RV Net rally. It was a small representative group of folks from all over the USA who are part of an online forum. They have really helped us to get to know our new motorhome. When we sold our GMC we thought we would never find a group of people so willing to help and share with us, but we have found the Tiffin owners are just as welcoming and helpful as the GMC folks. The guys got together over coffee and donuts one morning to have a tech session and on the last morning the Joe Brey and the guys fixed breakfast for everyone. It was so much fun getting to know everyone.

Until next time.... Happy and safe trails to you.
