Day 4 RV-Dreams Rally - Weighing the RV

Jim got up earlier than I did to go to a couple seminars on tire safety and weight safety that weren't "my thing."   The weight safety seminar came at the right time since Jim scheduled our home to be weighed at noon.  He took the truck first to get it weighed, then waited for me to get out of How to find a campground seminar.  Together we hitched up our home and drove it over to where the weight scales were set up.

We'll be getting a detailed analysis of our weights, but we did find out that we're not seriously overweight.  After lunch and once we got our home back in it's place and all set up again, I went to the seminar, "Every RVer Needs a Blog."  I've been blogging for quite some time, but there were quite a few things I learned to make it easier and faster. Thanks to Geeks on Tour for showing us a LOT of things that are new.

The rest of the afternoon was Rig Open House.  Many RV-Dreamers (including us) made their rigs available for others to walk through and check them out.  I love this part, you get such a great idea on how to "fix up" or change your own home.  There are four Carriage Cameo's here, all bought within six weeks of each other and all of them are quite different.  I didn't get permission to post pictures for public use so I'm not putting them in tonight's blog.

At 6:0 was the catered dinner of steak and shrimp, potatoes, salad, rolls or cornbread and dessert of chocolate cake or pecan pie.  What a wonderful meal!

The entertainment tonight was a Golden Oldies Sock Hop.  I was taking pictures but I was having a lot of trouble getting them to come out right.  Jim got his camera.  I had a ball getting over 57 pictures of the night's fun.  This is our last night together and it was so much fun.

Our DJ
We didn't leave till after 10:00.  I'm wondering how many will  make it to our catered breakfast in the morning. What a great ending to a fabulous week!  Just as it was in Branson, MO RV-Dreams rally,  it's going to be hard to say bye to so many people tomorrow.  We're hoping that we'll see most of them on the road again.

Here's a few blogs from others that are at the rally, so be sure to visit them for more info.

Glad your rig is not as overweight as you thought it was. Now, what you gonna toss?
