Good Morning, Betty and I bought our 30' Wildcat 5'er last fall, and have been exposed to this site for a short time. We are loving both of them. Being a newbie to the RV world, we found lots of answers to our questions, right here.It was funny that daily we would look forward to seeing the new posts and hoping that the post would answer another of our questions, it is fun.I am retired, and Betty is pulling the plug on work at the end of June, so we plan on using the RV plenty.
Our first extended trip will be through the northwest in July and August, coming home via the Grand Canyon.
We have seen ads for "rallys" and "samborees", but have NO idea what they are, or if we would enjoy them. If someone can give us some insight we would be appreciative. Our intentions are to become active and not miss many opportunties to meet new friends and see new places. Our thoughts for retirement is to finally experience this wonderful land of ours.
We of course must take our second sets of children, (2 cats) at least they think of themselves as kids. SPOILED rotten, but fun.
Thank you to all who have made our venture into RV'ing so easy, and we look forward to seeing somewhere down the road.
Gene & Betty ( Timmy and Tammy, the cats)

Gene, a Samboree is basically a "rally" put on by the folks at Good Sam...
You'll also find reference to the iRV2 National Rally on this site, we pick a different location every year and gather with other iRV2 members for food,fun and lots of things to do.
At most rallies there are vendors displaying their wares,which are usually weighted toward RV items...
On iRV2 we take the concept a step further in our "regional" area,where we get together throughout the year with smaller groups...
Be sure to look at the top of the main forum page for the National Rally topic, then down toward the bottom are the regional areas.
This year the iRV2 National Rally will be held in Branson,MO from the 15th to the 21st of July.
We'd LOVE to see ya there!!

Thanks for the info. We have already booked for July and August, but will look for the next one.
I have a feeling the tires will roll often once Betty is retired.
Cheers,
Gene and Betty

Glad you are enjoying the RV lifestyle. You will meet lots of fine folks.

You do not have to go to a Samboree to enjoy RVing. We like the smaller IRV2 rallies. Seems to be more personal and you are not lost in a crowd.

We also, like to travel on or own and just wonder around and see what we canfind.

The beauty of RVing is yuo can drag up and go if you don't like where you are.

Have fun.

Ken

Gene and Betty,rallies are good,but not needed to meet new friends. In this lifestyle you will meet more friendly people then ever before. Some will become close friends.
