  3. I assure you, it’s “Hole in the Wall”. It was founded by Paul Newman in 1988.

    It’s not Hole in the Wall. It’s Hole in the Woods.

  5. If you’d like to help and are a Good Sam Club member, check with your local or regional chapter president for ways you can assist directly through your chapter. Information should be on it’s way to the chapters throughout the month of October, as well as inside the October edition of Highways magazine. Otherwise, stay tuned to the blog, as we’ll post more information on specific ways for everyone to help as we move into November and December.

    This is a great organization and they need to expand. I would love to volunteer, but the Affinity website doesn’t give any information about how to do that – or how to contribute. Will there be a presence at Quartzite?

    There’s got to be some money or publicity in this or Affinity wouldn’t be involved. Don’t roll over Paul
