We're in the ZONE!
You wanna see some glitz? Some glamour? How about the plumbing system on a Liberty coach, another over a million coach, almost two million......Wow! Look at those beautiful copper pipes!
We signed up to get some great deals on camping stays as in FREE.....Actually, maybe we weren't not THAT excited as the pigs on TV, but we're excited for a couple different reasons...We're thrilled because Thousand Trails was offering the zone membership again...Pick one zone 199.00...(show price)...You get 30 nights camping for "free", then 3.00 a night after that...So you are paying about 6.63 a day. So-o-o-o, we were going to buy a zone, possibly two. Until we saw THE DEAL. You and the friend of your choice sign up at the same time and you can get ALL the zones in the United States for 499.00. You get 60 nights of extremely low cost camping then 3.00 a day after that...There was just one problem....
We didn't have any friends around us to take advantage of the offer....Some of our blogging friends are in the keys, other friends were at the show but we weren't able to contact them....So the Thousand Trails people dug another couple up that were in the same situation, which took care of the "buddy" membership requirement. We took the plunge and got all four zones for 499.00. We get 60 nights at the low cost of 6.00 a day anywhere at a Thousand Trails park in the four zones, then three dollars a night after that. You can book 60 days out for reservations. You get to stay two weeks max at any Thousand Trails park, then you have to be a week out before coming back in again. There is something called a Max Your Pass available for 199.00 that is somehow connected to single zone purchases. It's a little complicated on that, so come on out to the Tampa RV show to find out about it. We are VERY excited to be able to have all the zones (82 Thousand Trails Parks in the system) to save money this coming year! Actually, we are going to come out ahead this year because we can start using the TT parks in Florida! And if I've made any boo-boos on information, Eldy will correct me when I get back from my sister's.
Speaking of friends, we finally connected with one of our very loyal followers who started reading us the very first blog post! Gary Miller has been on board with us since the beginning and it was GREAT to meet him and his lovely wife. He's the one that told us about tying the awning toppers down with bungee cords and rope way back when Eldy was having trouble sleeping with the many winds we've had this past year in our travels. We caught up with them at the show today and had a great talk about travels and all sorts of things...Glad to finally meet you guys!
Well, this is my last post until I get back from Detroit....I'm visiting my sister and helping her celebrate birthday #70. She's had breast cancer twice, is healthy and well, and happy to have made it this far in life. We're gonna celebrate! Eldy will be holding down the fort at Webster, visiting with our terrific neighbors Ritchie and Nick, and they will be trying to keep him out of trouble while I'm gone. We'll see you back here on Monday night or Tuesday morning.....Bye for now!
