Hello from MacPack!!  I’m hoping that by the time this letter is published we will be past the confinements of COVID-19 and able to be on the road again.

Sarah and I were in Florida beginning in February and enjoyed our time at Grand Oaks RV Resort.  We always look forward getting there and relaxing.  Since it’s not too far from The Villages there’s always a lot to do!  The resort is an equine/RV resort so you never know what you might see out the front windshield or your patio! This year they even had the Lipizzan horses perform!

We then moved on to the Motorcoach RV Resort in Port Saint Lucie along with Jeff and Annette Hatfield to visit with Bob and Melinda Ridge. It’s a beautiful resort and they certainly keep busy!  Even went to a show with Johnny Cash before the virus spread and began to spoil our trip!  We were going home via Charleston, but the event we planned to attend was cancelled so decided the best thing we could do was head home.

We did get to tour the Seal Museum before leaving the area, and if you are in this area it’s definitely something to see.  Very well done and informative!  We also climbed 105 steps to the top of the Jupiter Inlet lighthouse-keeping fit!!

We now have 27 coaches signed up for our “Spring Back to TN” May 11-16, 2020 rally at the Ridge Outdoor Resort in Sevierville, TN., which is still scheduled as I write this letter.  This is truly a beautiful resort.  We’re looking forward to meeting several new members who plan to attend and catching up with current members. Marg and Dick Bender and Annette and Jeff Hatfield have done a great job planning the rally.  Some plans include a day trip to Gatlinburg and a show. 

Plans are also underway for our fall rally at American Heritage RV Resort in Williamsburg, VA.  Dates for the “Sons of the Revolution” rally are September 23 to 28, 2020, and reservations can now be made. Annette and Jeff Hatfield are hosts for the rally and it should be a great time.

Don’t forget to register for the National Rally at the Paragon Casino November 1-6, 2020.

I hope all are healthy and safe and hope to see you all soon as we travel this great country!!

Trim Sawtelle, President
