On October 4, 17 rigs from the Roadrunners Club exchanged the heat of Canyon Lake for the cool air and a bit of rain in Lone Pine, California. Many took in area sights and activities with a tour of the Film History Museum, visits to Mt Whitney Portal and Alabama Hills (where there are movie sets) and Manzanar National Historical Site. Some also enjoyed golfing at Mt. Whitney Golf Club and fishing in the Owens River.

According to spokesperson/photographer Leann Kluck, two new games were introduced: “Snakes in the Boot” and “Lasso,” which all the members enjoyed.

On one of the evenings, the group had a catered dinner and entertainment by Jim Davis of Murrieta, who sang and played guitar. Jim is a member of the Old Town Temecula Gunfighters. An added treat was a surprise visit by Cheryl Rogers, daughter of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, who answered questions about the Rogers family and signed her new book for those who wanted it.

Wagon Masters for this trip were Richard and Marilyn Stovall. Helping them were Chuck and Joy Call, David and Jennifer Carlson, and Bill and Carol Ruffulo.

Leann says, “Who would have thought so many things were available in Lone Pine’s little, sleepy town? I have been there before but still found many things to learn and do. I’m ready to go back!”
