Rally in the Pines… a renewal of friendships

Updated: Jan 6

The Rovin’ Pebbles got out of the heat in August. More the two dozen members, alumni members and friends rallied in Pinetop, Arizona.

Eight member rigs (16 folks) and ten alumni members enjoyed five days atop White Mountain at 7,300 feet above sea level (30 degrees cooler than the valley). Our base camp was at Hon-Dah RV Resort on the White Mountain Apache Reservation.

Excursions to the famous original Fort Apache, the Kinishba Indian Ruins, and the Sunrise Park ski resort were enjoyed by all. Fort Apache was made famous in the 1960s by Hollywood with numerous films about the wild west. The Kinishba Ruins are remarkably well preserved and showcase the creativity of the early Apache tribes. Sunrise Park (at 10,800 ft.) offered chair lifts and zip lining. Unfortunately, bad weather put a damper on our visit.

The Rovin’Pebbles have a tradition of eating well on trips. We didn’t disappoint on White Mountain. Our rally stated with a fun Happy Hour, with fellowship, food and beverages of our choice. On our second evening we enjoyed our delicious traditional Pot Luck Dinner. On our third evening we went out on the town to the Hungry Buffalo restaurant. More great food and fellowship. Finally, on a final evening, we celebrated a great week at the Wagon Master Cookout.

As we departed on our last day, we reflected on the great fellowship at the rally. Current and former members renewed friendships and recalled wonderful past travels. And we did it with full tummies in cooler weather.

Keep Rovin’!
