I forgot to mention that every morning Lee has been feeding a pair of local ducks. We got some cracked corn and they come up to him every morning and quack at him until he gives them their daily treat. Who knew Lee was the wild animal whisperer lol Here’s a great picture of my hubby and his ducks.
The last full day of the rally had an open house section where you could volunteer to show your rig. We had a great time both showing ours and seeing others and I got tons of neat space-saving ideas especially from Linda who has been doing this for 9 years and had a carpenter friend come in and build some custom drawers. My honey do list got bigger and bigger 🙂 It was also very gratifying to show other folks our open range. People really liked the floor plan especially where Lee had built me a desk and it was great to hear folks say what they liked. At first we kept thinking folks were just being polite, but when they were specific it was nice. Validated that we had chosen well!! Here’s some of the pictures I took (with permission) from other rigs and some cool ideas I want Lee to try to implement.
After the open house I took a nap 🙂 That was a lot of walking and I had to get ready for the big closing party. Linda had a Derby theme since Howard and Linda the rally organizers are from Louisville and everyone was supposed to bring a derby hat. I went to the thrift store and bought a sun hat and dressed it up with feathers and I took Lee’s fedora and put a beautiful feather in it. Lee said he had his “pimp hat” on lol. The hats were really beautiful and we watched the race. Then everyone danced and had a great time. Breakfast the next morning we said our farewells to many folks leaving and took a great group picture of the “newbie” class if 2014. Tonight we are going to one more informal bonfire and then we hit the road back home. What a jam-packed week and I am kind of excited to get back on the road to get a little rest lol. Can I say we were one of the youngest couples at the rally and the energy level of most of these folks put us to shame 🙂 Whew I need another nap!!
