A big brown Newmar Dutch Star camper with Texas plates dusted up the gravel rolling into the Missouri State Fair Campgrounds Tuesday afternoon. Don Wooden, south region director of Good Sam Club, was unhitching his car when a friend approached.
“What’s going on young man?” Wooden said.
The two shook hands and caught up. They discussed the different churches they attended while living in their RVs on the road. Wooden’s Dutch Star was one of almost 200 rigs gathering in Sedalia for the Missouri “Vacation Fun” Samboree, an “RV get together” made up of mostly retirees, snowbirds and winter Texans that began Thursday.
State directors Sharon and Joe Waddell, of Ellisville, Missouri, said the Samboree gives members a chance to see Sedalia.
“I’ve come to Sedalia to camp when we stayed out under the trees at the State Fair,” Sharon said. “I’ve been coming here for more than 70 years. I’m really familiar with this venue … It’s like a second home.”
