RV-Dreams Rally at Buckhorn Lake Resort

There are 80 some people registered for the RV-Dreams rally at Buckhorn Lake Resort. A number of us are parked around the putting green near the center of the property.

It is pretty cool to have greenskeeping equipment mowing the grounds and keeping the grass well manicured. We really like the facility and accommodations.

Buckhorn also has a big red barn which is where we will eat a few meals and listen to the seminars.
Putting on a rally takes lots of work. A few of us helped out by stuffing information and candy into bags and putting name tags into name tags holders. The registration table got set up and some of Linda's RV-Dreams jewelry was on display and for sale. Meanwhile Howard got the projector and sound system set up.
Nelson and his wife Evelyn from Millenium Luxury Coaches were on the grounds and showing off three Prevost motor coaches they have for sale. Pam and I decided to take a tour through three models and it was quite interesting. They had a 2001, a 2003 and a 2008 for sale.

It was nice of them to take some time and explain some things and answer all our questions. Nelson had designed an LCD TV that swivels and is mounted below in one of the bays which was a nice feature. These coaches were way out of our range (selling for $400,000+ to $989,000) but it was interesting to see. If we are near Sanford, FL we intend to take a tour of their factory.

The first event of the Rally was a catered dinner in the barn. It was terrific! We had beef, chicken, potatoe salad and cole slaw, bean and iced tea. Dessert of peach cobbler and ice cream was also served.
After dinner, everyone was introduced. The rally is for anyone interested in the RV lifestyle. We had some people who have been at it full-time for over 5 years and quite a few who were there to see if the RVing was for them.

Next, we were divided up into groups and tasked with listing as many 'RV tips and techniques' on topics such as: arrival set-up and departure; safety; cooking; maintenance and budget/cost cutting ideas.

It was a great start to the rally and we are looking forward to the next few days! It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun and very informative.

Thats about it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for stopping by. If you have never left a comment, feel free to do so~we really appreciate those.

  3. Hey Pam and Randy,
    I finally took a long needed tour of your blog. It sounds amazing! I was interested in the top 10 things you have learned since starting your journey. All you need is your wife, an adventure and a mission from God. Beautiful! Still miss you though!
