Our First Full Day

So, what did we do yesterday?  That’s a good question.  We’re going to have to stop and think about that for a minute.  Here’s the short version. 

I began the day with a seminar on Picasa (a photo managing software) while Judy J. visited the Hospitality Center to get a handle on the rally agenda changes (they publish a daily bulletin to keep us apprised of the latest news, etc., that lists any schedule changes at the rally). 

Then we did our “walk about” to socialize a little.  We came home for lunch and then made our appearance at a RV-Dreams gathering taking place at noon time.  From there we did a walk through the Indoor Market and picked up some information on workamping at Dollywood and on a Community Credit Union that is located in Texas.  Being that Dollywood will accept six week work assignments, it’s something that we may consider.

At one o’clock, I attended another seminar while Judy went to a basket weaving class; this time it was making a beaded bracelet.  After that, we both attended a RV Driving Demonstration for a few minutes, but our attention was diverted by people walking about with soft served ice cream cones.  So we went in search of the cone’s point of origin which we found in the Hospitality Center – just yummy on a warm summer’s afternoon.

The Social Hour is held each day at 4:30 to 5:30 where there are drawings for door prizes (you must be present to win – we were, but we didn’t).  Also, One More Time, with the help of 14 volunteers, sang a Diana Ross and the Supremes song (Stop In The Name Of Love).  It was hilarious.

From the Social Hour, the Camerons, the Emonds, the Martins, the Pattersons, and the Paynes went out for dinner at Applebee’s.  Good food with good friends; that’s what this week is all about.  We didn’t get home until around eight o’clock and our PJ’s were screaming for us by then thereby bringing a close to another day at the Escapade.

So there you have it.  We took some pictures, however, they weren’t worthy of posting so better luck today.  This could be our busiest day at the Escapade; note the word “could”.  We may not attend everything that we have highlighted; after all, we are retired, ya know!!

  1. A work camping couple at LGE this year had worked at Dollywood and had nothing but great things to say about it. They were very accommodating if you needed time off or if you had visitors. They said that is the only work camping job they would ever do again. Wish we could have made the Rally. See you down the road.
