Attending the FMCA Southeast Rally in Brooksville, FL

We took the short drive over to Brooksville, FL (just a bit north of Tampa) to attend the Family Motor Coach Association Southeast Rally. The FMCA rally is held on the local airport -- literally! We actually parked, with a couple thousand other motorhomes, on the concrete runway! here, Orinda and Cody, the amazing Rally Dog, are ready to do some exploring.

This is the view from the rear of our coach -- motorhomes parked as far as you can see -- and we are near the middle of the row.

This is the view of the front of the coach and as you can see, there is plenty of room between the rigs. The FMCA is a great organization and everyone we have met is very friendly and outgoing.

Rick and Cody are having a tough afternoon. We have already been to visit the many (hundreds) of vendors who offer all kinds of RV related items. There are also many seminars on interesting topics that we will take part in tomorrow. Finally, if you are looking for a new motorhome, there are quite a few of them for sale as well!

Our electric bikes are coming in very handy since the rally is spread out over a very large area. The FMCA is also running shuttle busses between the areas, so that works out well too.

How funny that you were there... Usually every year we are there and volunteer. We usually do the day parking. But this year we decided to not stay home for the winter... Sorry we missed you! Have fun & Travel Safe!

Looks a lot better than last year. We nearly froze then. Temps in the teens for most of the time at night. Honestly, not a lot of fun.
