Beginning today, many outdoor types will be going indoors. It has nothing to do with the weather.
They'll be attending a show at the Anaheim Convention Center, where more than 600 exhibitors will be touting their wares at a three-in-one show featuring sports activities and equipment, West Coast travel and recreational vehicles.
Kay and Joe Peterson, who have lived full time in a recreational vehicle for the last 18 years, will present daily seminars on the RV life style. They are the founders of the Escapees Club, a support group for people who live on the road. The seminars will cover such topics as getting mail, handling cash, finding medical aid, staying in touch with the family and selecting an RV.
There will also be a fishing clinic, a casting pond and travel films. Wildlife art will be on display and for sale.
Travel vendors will offer information on river rafting, skiing, horseback pack trips, diving, bicycle tours, houseboat vacations--even treks by covered wagon.
Admission to the show is $5.95 for adults, $2.25 for children 6 through 15; children under 6 are admitted free. Hours are: today and next Saturday, noon to 10 p.m.; Sundays, noon to 7 p.m.; and Monday through Friday, 2 to 10 p.m. The show ends Jan. 10.
The convention center is at 800 W. Katella Ave., Anaheim. For more details, call (714) 999-8900.
