Talking with Vendors & 'Kicking Tires' of New MH Offerings

sunny 78 °F

Howdy from Cowboy Country!

After returning from the Coal Mine Tour the afternoon was devoted to seeing what is new in the MH industry. Nothing excited me and I decided that my MH was a good value when I purchased it and that I have no desire to trade for another.

The evening entertainment was held in 'Pioneer Hall', a cavernous room capable of seating 1,500 - 2,000 people. On stage performing was a group from Chicago who called themselves "New Odyssey, 3 Men & 30 Instruments". The 3 musicians sang and played 30 instruments during their performance. Each was accomplished for all played keyboard, trumpet, coronet, drums, saxaphone, guitar, banjo, clarinet, tuba, etc., etc. They catered to the audience with music from the 50's, 60's, & 70's. Everyone enjoyed the show.

Some of my blog-followers have been waiting for my report on attending the 'Singles Club Happy Hour'. I went out of curiosity, met some nice people all of whom travel alone in their MH's. There were about 15 in the group, mostly women and 3 single men. One man was obviously very gay (not my flavor) and the other two were widowers, like me. The national group is loosley organized into regions with various chapters within the region. For example, FL has 4; 2 in north FL, one in SE FL, and the other in SW FL. They rally at holiday times for camaraderie during those lonely periods, then motor a few times during the year to interesting locations.
It is hard to imagine, particularly these older ladies, driving these 40+ ft. MH's around the country alone, but they do it without fear. My judgement is most are older than me and like me, most could do a little (or alot of) dieting. They were, of course, very welcoming to the prospect of adding a new male member to their group. Frankly, I was non-committal.

Tonight is the Military Veterans' Chapter of FMCA dinner at the Elks Lodge, located just across the highway. Should be fun. More on that later.
