In my last post, I told you we felt we’d escaped. Guess that makes us Escapees. And, when 2,000 like-minded RVers get together for fun and learning, that’s an Escapade!
For the past 7 days we’ve been camped at the 57th Escapade – the annual Escapee RV Club rally just outside Tucson, AZ. That’s probably longer than we’ll be parking in one location at any other time on this trip.
This was our third time attending this event and, despite the fact that we were here to work, educate, and promote my web sites, as always, we had a lot of fun.
More Fun than Work
This is what a room of 2000 RVers looks like.
We met up with familiar faces and made a few new friends along the way. I guess some would call this “networking” but with this RV club, social happy hours abound, hugs replace handshakes, and it’s always just more fun than work. Maybe there’s a more appropriate word. Netplaying, perhaps? It’s a long way to come just to attend this rally but, since we were on our way to California for a few months anyway, it was easy to make the decision.
The Desert is Calling
And speaking of moving. The Escapade work/play week is behind us and it’s time to move on. The desert is calling. It’s a great year for wildflowers; let’s go find them!
