Default Sebring Breakfast during Summer

Sebring July 9, 2014

We had about 12 RV's in attendance at Wednesdays RV breakfast as most of the crowd is up North.

Dave Cook and I made the trip from Venice, my first in several months because I was tending to my ailing mother in Ohio. It was a last minute decision to go for Sebring so I wasn’t able to round up our entire gang.

Dan and Judy Duran were there in their beautiful RV-7 (N217DJ - Red/Whi/Blue w stars on the tail). I wish I had taken more shots of the group but by the time I was done outside, my food was ready. Of course, the crowd dispersed quickly after eating.

Of course, we missed Turbo and the entire "Up North Gang"

Also on board … I ran into a group sitting outside and noticed the VAF hat. Struck up a conversation and here is what I learned….

On holiday from the Netherlands (who drove from somewhere in central Florida…. he told me but I forgot)

Henkjan van der Zouw (Henkjan is wearing his VAF cap.)

Henkjan is an RV-6 Owner (previously owned by Alex De Dominicis in Texas) and is building an RV-10 (PH-2ME reserved).

To his left are his daughter, Nikki and wife Rolenda.
Across the table are friends Thom and Marjo, also from the Netherlands

Welcome and we hope you have a great vacation.
