Rally Part I

We (the red dot) are one of 80 various Thor coaches and 23 Palazzos.

We have been traveling for almost 5 years and we've been a member of the Thor Diesel and Palazzo groups during that time. This is our first rally, held at the Elkhart, IN fairgrounds, and it is the biggest one of the year (includes all of the U.S. and Canada). Throughout the week we can visit venders offering specific RV products and services, as well as attend seminars. Breakfast, dinner, entertainment, and games are provided. We're really looking forward to Tues. and Thurs. when we will have meetings for just Palazzo owners. The best part is definitely meeting new people!

Thor Service is closed this week and they send their technitions (at least 10 of them) over from Wakarusa to work on our RV's, with our only cost being parts.

Sunday was registration and ended with our first dinner.

Goshen Police Honor Guard posted the colors. Since 2003 they have hosted yearly camps training thousands of police officers and firefighters in proper honor guard skills.

The wall of National Parks. We got to add our name to 50 that we have visited.

Raffles including the quilts with proceeds going to charity. 

Breakfast and lunch are provided all week.

Monday we went to a seminar on our Cummins Diesel Engine. Our presenter was so entertaining. He told us that only dash light a co-pilot could yell about to the driver was the red one. The rest were not "yell" worthy.

Monday evening's entertainment was a Barber Shop Quartet and...

...we learned a fun new game. 

Tuesday included a pet parade and charity bingo.

Where are the Piepers now? Goshen, IN
