TRAVEL N FUN COLUMN FOR NOVEMBER
September 22 to 26 found Travel N Fun at Toppenish and the Yakama Nation RV
Park. With nearly perfect weather, campers spent four days gathered between
the Lewis and Gould rigs for what seemed like one continuous buffet and
bocce, jigsaw puzzles, and after dark, a campfire. Friday evening, the gang
played several rounds of Left/Right/Center. We did not get the names of all
the winners, but do know that two couples walked away with both pots: The
Goulds and Blankenships.
Saturday morning, the "Biscuit Girls" (and a couple of guys) served biscuits
with country gravy and fruit. In the evening, the campers moved to the
casino for a nearly free buffet - depending, of course, on what else
happened while there.
Thanks to the hosts - Darrell and Stephanie Schmittlier, Sam and Kathy
Josephson and Ken and Nancy Gould for a great outing.
October 21 to 24, the club traveled to Rest-a-While on the shores of Hood
