SoCal FMC Mini-Rally, 2012

We just got back from visiting with FMC friends in the greater LA area.  What a wonderful spot!  We had 6 FMC coaches, 2 SOBs, and 2 folks who came without their FMCs.  We were camped at Puddingstone Reservoir in San Dimas.  It’s up in the hills between Pomona, San Dimas, and La Verne.  We got to watch planes take off from the La Verne airport, hear trains go by, see the lights of LA at night, and, amazingly enough, watch a Bald Eagle soar over our campsite everyday.

FMCers came from Northern California, Southern California, Arizona, and Missouri.  I’m finished with being amazed at how far Jim Woestman will travel for a rally. Just know you can probably count on him to attend!

Much of the weekend was spent watching the men crawl under the vehicles but there were also some intense games of Bananagrams and Blongoball, too.  We had a fantastic pot luck dinner on Saturday night and wonderful campfires each evening.  Although, come to think of it, it was so chilly on Saturday, we started the fire about 9am and kept it going until well after 10pm.

One of the highlights of the weekend was having a local RV washing company come out and wash 4 of the FMCs in our sites.  They were so shiny and clean!  Really lovely!  The guys did a great job!
