I am definitely running behind on the blog, as we have been home a week already and still have not completed our journal of our trip to Georgia. I am behind because as soon as we returned home, we began our role as grandparent care givers to Victoria and Nico. Our daughter had to return to her second grade classroom, so we have started watching over our grandkids until Nico is old enough in our collective minds to start daycare. This is enjoyable but somewhat tiring duty. It is very clear why young people have children, they have the energy to keep up with them.
Back to our travels in Georgia. After leaving High Falls State Park, we entered the Atlanta Speedway grounds and were parked by a very well organized parking crew directly outside of turn one. We were going to share the activities with around 5000 fellow Good Sam members .
There was a lot of new model RV's available for rubbernecking along with a number of used units. There was a large Camping World store (owned by Good Sam) along with two additional buildings full of vendors selling all the latest RV gear they hoped we could not do without.
We sat in on several of the seminars with Anneke particularly enjoying the one by the Food Channel chef Bob Blumer She even bought one of his books.
We just happened to catch a show by a dog training group called the K9 Kings flying dog show. It was very interesting and the dogs were indeed well trained. I fear there is no hope for Halley in that regard. Her only chance is if they had a category for most spoiled.
The main attraction for us was the entertainment. The two headliners were The Beach Boys and Vince Gill. We enjoyed both shows. On Saturday, the sunset over the speedway was really wonderful. After sundown, there was a nice fireworks display viewed from the grandstands.
This was our second Good Sam Rally and we found both to be well organized and enjoyable.
