I didn't have access to the internet so posting about the Jimco rally now.

Hey Gang,
Well I made it. I made it to the JIMCO Vintage RV rally in Thompson. It was tough trying to get everything together as the GoGo Bus just 2 weeks ago went in for surgery to repair rot. I only got it back 10 days ago and besides polishing and cleaning from not using it in such a long time I had to replace the floor and carpet. Dad is still is very handy and likes to pitch in helped as did John in Barberton who lent a hand with the wood for the floor. So a big thanki you to them.

Now.... about the rally.

I ran late, whats new? It started Wednesday. I wanted to be here either early evening Thursday or early Friday, I made it late Friday night about 10:30. It was only in Thompson which is under 35 miles from my house but can you believe I got lost? The directions said take a right on Madison Road. I went up and down RT 166 numerous times before I realized 528 is Madison Rd., DUH! That's another reason for the late arrival.

When I pulled in I knocked on the door and was greeted with a big smile from Jimco's wife Lydia. Then Jimco the owner of the property and rally came out, jumped into my Bus and showed me to my spot. Before he headed back he gave me the rundown and some history of the place.

The rally is held on a 30 acre tree farm. Jimco sells hardwood from it. Before that he was a mechanic who restored many different vehicles. His ex fiancee who passed away was the one who got him into RV's. He started with one Winabago and from there he kept adding and selling. He has the VERY FIRST Winabago off the assembly line, 001. Jimco said he would show it to me in the morning I am very excited to see it. His future plans are to hot rod a Winabago and race it that will still be fully functional. I bet I will still beat him in the GoGo Bus, well of course down hill. I tell people the Bus does 30 mph uphill and 130 down.

Anxious for morning to see the other rigs and meet everyone.
Well I went to bed very very early, at midnight. Couldn't sleep because of the damp sheets smell like moof. Hey I forgot that I haven't used the Bus for traveling in some time, should of aired everything out before embarking on a camp out. The smell got to me and the bugs. It sounds like an airport in here with everything buzzing above my head. I just had to chase a cricket out of here. I should instal a screen door on the GoGo Bus.

Off to try and sleep again, most campers wake very early. Not sure what time this bunch will wake up but best try to sleep.

Gotta GoGo!!
