Lone Star Allegro Rally–Advanced RV Park

On Thursday, we finished up at the Cummins Service Center with the Steering Gear Bracket change out at about 4:00PM, and headed to the Advanced RV Park for the Allegro chapter club rally.  Here are pictures of the old and new bracket……

We got checked in and parked, and then made arrangements with Mark and Sue Didelot, who were parked right in front of us at the park for the rally, to have dinner with Jodi and Darrell from another camping club that we both are members, Camping Friends.  We met them at a small Mexican Food café called Emily’s in Pearland, TX! 

The meal and company was good, and Patsy and I will be camping with Jodi and company during the Labor Day weekend in La Grange, TX,

We spent most of Friday playing card game and visiting.  We made plans to eat out at a local steakhouse called “Saltgrass”, but just after we arrived, a major rain & wind storm blew in, and after a couple of short electrical outages, the power finally died for good!! 


After waiting about 30 minutes in the dark, we called it off, and it was everybody for themselves.  We had driven to the restaurant with Charlie and Joan Stanger, and we ended up at a Mimi’s Restaurant.  It was a good meal, but we ate late!!!

The big event was planned for Saturday.  Actually, this rally was just a mini-rally, and not official.  We normally don’t camp in the summer months, but do get together once for a meal.  This year, the meal was a 50’s theme hamburger cookout.  The host were Richard and Vickie, and they really worked hard to plan and deliver!  The room was decorated, people were dressed 50’s style, and we had cakes and home made peach ice cream!


Mark and Sue were celebrating their 40th anniversary this weekend, and they had the first dance…..


After that, Richard and Vickie, our hosts for the weekend, took to the dance floor…….


Then there was Richard “Matcoman” Brinlee


……..and his lovely wife, Nancy, with her musical glasses.



We had a good time, and the hamburgers were very good.  mainly relaxed the rest of the day, and then on Sunday, most of us un-hooked and went home.
