Almost Heaven... WEST VIRGINIA

Our schedule is about to slow down for a couple of weeks... hopefully.  We drove from Louisiana to Panama City Beach, FL,  to see our grandson play in a baseball tournament.
Panama City Beach, FL
While the outcome of the game was disappointing, we thoroughly enjoyed spending quality time with some of our family.

We then drove to our motorhome to Atlanta, and our "home on wheels" would remain there while we drove our car to Green Cove Springs, FL,  to celebrate several other milestones in our grandson, Kenneth Burke's life.  We witnessed Kenneth signing a partial baseball scholarship to Inspiration Academy in Bradenton, FL, where he will attend his first year of college.  We also attended Kenneth's 2017 graduation from Clay High School.

After graduation we drove back to Atlanta to hook up to our motorhome to begin our trip to Lewisburg, WV, to attend a Tiffin Allegro Club Rally and enjoy 3 days of fun and fellowship with other Tiffin motorhome owners.

This was our view every morning for coffee!

Approximately 310 motorhomes and more than 600 people attended the Tiffin Allegro Club Rally at the beautiful West Virginia State Fairgrounds in Lewisburg, WV.

 Attendees were from 36 different states and one province in Canada.  The program was jam-packed with interesting topics/seminars,  including Attitude Adjustment (ARTitude Adjustment) ...It's FUN art...not FINE art! art therapy painting classes.   It is still hard to imagine how much pre-planning an event of this size requires.  Most meals were catered, ice cream socials, displays of new coaches, lots of door prizes, entertainment every evening, and patriotic tributes to our veterans.

Catered meals and entertainment were in the West Virginia Building

Lewisburg, WV
After such a busy rally we made arrangements to stay a few extra days to see more of this picturesque and scenic historic part of our country.  Lewisburg has one of the largest historic downtowns on the National Register - 250 acres....and The Greenbrier is only 8.5 miles down the road!
