SUNSET RAMBLERS
January 2012
The Sunset Ramblers held their January campout at Florida Gateway Resort in Jasper, FL.  We had three rigs
in attendance.  Friday afternoon we gathered to catch up on all the news.  We enjoyed the fire as the sun took
away the heat of the day.  That evening we enjoyed a buffet dinner at the Telford Hotel built in 1902.  The next
morning we gathered and spent time together.  One of our members worked on sewing bears for Boggy Creek
while we talked.  That afternoon we took a long walk exploring the camp.  One of our ladies went back to her
childhood and enjoyed jumping on the trampoline.  We gathered around one of the many fire pits around the
fountains by the building.  They offered to light the fire but we knew we were not going to stay too long as
supper was a waiting.  We gathered for spaghetti and all the good fixings.  We later gathered at our fire and
welcomed some visitors.  Our next campout will be at Pecan Park RV in Jacksonville, February 10-12.  
Everyone is always welcome to come and visit with us. We would love to visit for the day or camp with you for
the weekend.  Please give our president Rich Gavin a call at 904-264-3188 to join us as we gather for food, fun
and fellowship.
February 2012
The Sunset Ramblers held their February campout at Pecan Park RV in Jacksonville, FL.  We had four rigs in
attendance.  We had several early birds on Thursday.  One couple arrived Thursday afternoon and were
happy to be in town so they could go watch their granddaughter cheer.  Another couple in on Thursday went to
work from camp on Friday.  Thursday afternoon brought out the “so what’s new” conversations and it was great
to get caught up.  Four of us played a great game of hand and foot.  Friday morning everyone took care of
business.   One couple went to work, another went back to the RV dealer regarding the rig they picked up and
brought directly to camp.  Another one took their car to a local dealer for a quick repair while still another one
went shopping for supplies for the upcoming garbage bag and duct tape project.  After everyone got back we
enjoyed an afternoon of helping each other and good conversations.  Soon it was time for dinner plans and we
decided on a local seafood place.  After we got back to camp we enjoyed playing Left, Right, Center and then
Sevens.  Saturday morning we started with a delicious breakfast and went right to work on our project for the
Samboree.  We enjoyed a great afternoon working together and munching on delicious finger food.  That night
we had a hard freeze so we were glad we had prepared our houses and rigs for the cold.  Sunday morning
warmed up as we broke camp.  We are looking forward to the upcoming Florida Winter Samboree February 29-
March 4 and the Georgia Samboree March 22-25.  Everyone is always welcome to come and visit with us. We
would love to visit for the day or camp with you for the weekend.  Please give our president Rich Gavin a call at
904-264-3188 to join us as we gather for food, fun and fellowship.
