BY Kimberlea Weeks—It is time to get those GMCs together—and their owners, too. Even s.o.b.s (some other brands). And other vintage RVs. We have been good, and we have been safe, and now we need to meet and eat. And along the way, we will learn things, catch up with each other, and just have FUN!
Space is limited. Registration closes September 1.

The men will be served a “Petro”. What is a Petro?
The theme of the 1982 World’s Fair was Energy, and the food vendor with the longest lines served what was first called a “Petroleum Belly” and quickly shortened to the “Petro,” a sliced open bag of Frito’s piled high with chili and toppings.
