From the Home Office in Urgent Care 'n the Cabin
Greetings Fellow Rallyists,
Dark at 10P? Say it isn't so! Winter in the Arctic is coming on fast, and while I have not seen snow on the tops of the mountains - termination dust signaling the end of summer, the fireweed has almost bloomed to the top, which means "frost." It seems we saw somewhere that the Alcan 5000 Road Rally recon is coming north the first of September; we hope they don't get snowed in, haha!

My household had our third wave of vacationers head south on the 15th and good use of the cabin has been made this summer! The cause for Urgent Care from July 24th finally start to resolve last Wednesday after two rounds of drugs. My husband joked, initially, "The Good Lord wants you to slow down!" Seven days ago, he commented, "I didn't think it was going to be this long!" It appears I am not a patient "patient." The good news is that I can type quickly once again and this edition of RReNews is out the door. Hurrah!

To those Rallymasters and rallyists who have sent in notices since our last edition,thank you for your contributions to your local program events.
