Greetings from sunny southwest Florida! It’s almost time to finish packing up and head north for us. It’s always bitter sweet as the winter season comes to an end as there are so many AC friends in the area. We took a quick trip to Key west and stayed at the beautiful Blue Water Key RV Resort, at mile marker 14.5, which means we were 14.5 miles north of Key West. If you have the opportunity to visit the Keys, Blue Water is a beautiful resort, only 81 or 82 sites, most on the bay or canal. And Key West is…well, Key West! Sights to see, great people watching, fantastic sea food, boating, and fun! And most famous for sunsets!


Our picnic here at River Bend was very well attended! We had 52 for lunch! Thanks to Brenda and James Anderson for helping, cooking burgers and hot dogs, and Nancy and Bill Kurkurin for a gorgeous cake! With all the great sides everyone brought no one went home hungry! In addition to our NE chapter, we had friends from Happy Wanderers, SE, and Great Lakes.
Before I close, one of our newer NE members, Carl Bullock underwent open heart surgery a few weeks back in PA. Very happy to report he is doing great, and hopes to return back to River Bend shortly to finish his recuperating, then head to the SE rally in April. By the time you read this, I’m sure he’ll be totally back on the road. We’ve had enough sad news lately, so I felt it was important to share a great report!


Safe travels home or as you start summer plans! Keep your eyes open, you never know who you may run into!!
