Vagabonds News


We are winding down for the summer as we go dark June, July and August. However, we have had many great trips throughout the year. Our last trip before going dark will be in Wickenburg May 17th to the 20th. This is hosted by Jim & Janet Sims and Tom & Joyce Bradley. The RV Park is very nice with lots of amenities – pool, club house and BBQ. Also there will be golfing and off-roading. Of course there is never a campout without happy hours and pot lucks. This is always a well attended campout. Our annual Tri-State event this year was in Yuma at the Fortuna de Oro RV Resort. Dates were April 19th through the 21st. Once again Jim Goodine organized the entire event. We had 110 RV’s from New Mexico, California and Arizona. Our Club hosted the horse race games, raffles and an open bar. This was a lot of work for Jim and volunteers from our Vagabonds Club. Thank you to all who were involved in making this a huge success and lots of fun. Our Club continues to grow with new members each month.

Welcome to Larry & Charlotte Heller, Slade & Evelyn Rivers, Larry & Marilyn McGraw, Rick Launius & Brenda Witt, Quentin & Terri Ward and Gene & Lynne Hall. We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you.

We count on our members to host our campouts. They are the ones that come up with ideas for our events and make the arrangements for our group. The rest is pretty easy. We have happy hours, eat a lot, golf, go off roading and play games. We have a fun group of people so that always results in a great campout. Our first campout of the new season starting in September is Williams. The dates are September 13th to the 16th at the Railside RV Ranch. If you are interested in attending and have not made your reservations, I suggest you do so now as this is a very popular trip. If they are full, ask to be put on the waiting list. Last year we had our overflow at another campground close by and we may have to do the same this year.

Even though we are dark for the summer months and don’t have formal meetings, those left in town like to get together for lunch at the Lodge. They meet on the second Wednesday of the month at noon. This is a great time to get together and catch up with each other. For those that travel during the summer months, have a safe and enjoyable summer. For those that stay here and enjoy our lake, we look forward to running into you at some point. Yes, it does get hot here, but there is always the lake, pool and air conditioning.

We look forward to seeing everyone again in September. Remember – BPOE – Best People on Earth Marti Johnson Vagabonds Secretary
