The Southwest Roadrunners gathered at the Sun Country RV Resort in Chula Vista, California, for the San Diego Sun Rally from October 17 – 21. We had 70 LTVs registered for the event.
After signing in, two welcome meet and greet sessions were held where people met new and old friends and planned activities for the week. San Diego is a wonderful destination. The San Diego Trolley stopped outside the park gates to whisk people downtown to explore Old Town, Little Italy, Balboa Park, the Embarcadero and the Maritime Museum, LaJolla, and more. Some took the Old Trolley Tour that covered most of the best San Diego offers. Pickleball was also a popular pastime in the mornings and afternoons. Many also participated in a rousing game of Bocce Ball. In the evening, we gathered together again to share our experiences from the day.
Wednesday was a highlight, a cruise of the San Diego Harbor. We bussed to the Embarcadero to board our private charter boat for a three-hour tour of both the North and South Bays, going by Point Loma, Coronado, downtown, and under the Coronado Bridge to the shipyards. It was a perfect day out on the water-hot and sunny. In fact, the air-conditioned cabin was a welcome respite for many!
At the end of the day, Josiah Wiebe, our special guest from Winkler, answered many questions about Leisure Travel Vans.
Thursday was seminar day. James Brummett opened the agenda with a very interesting presentation on options and opportunities to stay digitally connected while on the road, then Towney gave one of his ever-changing, ever, popular tech talks.
In the afternoon, at leisure, many people took advantage of the Bay Bike trail and pedaled their way along the shore, some as far as Coronado, for a bite to eat.
In the evening, the final gathering was in the recreation room of the resort with snacks and dinner from the café. Some people did Christmas crafts to get ready for the season!
It was a good Rally. Good people, good times, and perfect weather. What more could you ask for? We’ll meet again in Las Vegas at the Oasis Resort for our annual general meeting in February, followed by a quick stop at Red Rocks. Till then…
