It is the time of year when the boat and RV shows are going on. This past weekend was the WYMTTV Boat and RV Show at the Expo Center in Pikeville. They have been having this show for around six years and I have been to all of them and had a lot of fun looking at some nice boats and campers. Plus I got to buy fishing tackle and get information on many things outdoor-related.
The boat shows were held in Hazard at the Pavilion for years, and I also went to them and had a good time. The show was moved to Pikeville after the building of the Expo Center. If you have never been to one of these shows you do not know what you are missing. There is something for just about everybody. There are several different brands of four-wheelers, motorcycles, boats, campers and side-by-sides, plus all kinds of fishing and outdoor related items.
The pontoon boats are set up with walkways around them so you can walk right up and onto the boat and check it out. There are several aluminum bass boats that are super-nice. These are my favorite fishing boats. They also have the high dollar top-of-theline fiberglass boats.
It is also interesting to walk through and check out the amazing campers. If you have not been in a brand new camper in a while you will not believe how nice some of them are. This was the biggest show Pikeville has had in some time and there was a huge crowd. Everyone seemed to really be having a good time. You can search on the web for more shows going on in our area. Go to one and have some fun.
