Lots to see at the big tent
I decided to go down to the RV Show at the big tent and leave my wallet at home and take my camera instead. It was certainly a lot cheaper that way but also a lot of fun. Here are some of the pics I took. If you enter the tent from the south side you are greeted by the Michelin Man.
Everyone likes FREE camping
Once inside the tent don’t forget to stop by and say hello to Don and Kim Greene. They are the nicest people you will ever meet and they run Harvest Hosts where you can camp overnight for free at many wineries, orchards and farms. Just click on the link below to be taken to their site for more information.
Right now they are running two tours of wineries in Mexico and in the Fall they will be running a 23 day RV trip to the wineries in France. In the works is also an RV tour of the wineries in New Zealand.
Here is a pic of Don Greene posing in front of his booth.
If you get hungry
This is the soup lady where you can get easy to fix packaged soups. I bought them from her last year and they were really great.
When lunch time rolls around you might want to stop off at J T’s Louisiana BBQ. They have both beef and pork sandwhiches for only $4. They are soooo goood.
This BBQ is operated by JT and his family. Here you can see them cooking up that delicious BBQ in the back.
And then top that all of with an ice cream cone.
We all could use extra money
If you are looking for a great job next winter check out the Amazon booth. They will sign you up for a job at three different fullfillment centers. I signed up here last year and worked at the Fernly, NV center. It was a good job that gave me some extra spending money.
While walking through the tent I ran into Clay and Tami who I worked with last winter at Amazon. In fact I saw quite a few co-workers while walking the tent.
Lots of other stuff as well
This guy takes laying down at the job quite literally. He is selling bedding.
Need a hat?
Checkout these butts! HA!
Old guys rule!
If you have any pains you might want to stop off at this booth.
Maybe you just need to clean your RV.
No need to be in any hurry. We all have plenty of time.
Finally you might even hit the jack pot! Great name for a toilet.
Forgot about all the unusual stuff they sell at Q. Did you go back and buy a butt???
Ok Jim, what did you buy? Just between you and me and the world!
This year I bought 3 more LED’s. Two to replace my fluorescents and one overhead. I also got a outside motion dectector light for over my door that will come on when anyone gets close to the door. Don’t forget my new step as well. Much better then the old rickety one.
That sounds so neat, staying at wineries through Harvest Hosts. I remember you’d stayed with them before? How many did you do?
Jim, just 61 more days before I leave!
I have only stayed at three so far, but I intend to stay at many more while traveling through Wine Country in Northern California this Spring.
That 61 days will go very fast and then you will be on the road. That is GREAT!!!
