Find your share of gold at the upcoming Seattle RV Show February 10th – 13th at the Qwest Field Event Center. Washington Prospectors Mining Association (WPMA) will have an exhibit booth at the show. For a nominal fee you can pan for gold right there at the show. The gold you find is yours to keep. Once you have refined your gold panning skills, learn about all the great places you can take your RV and hunt for gold on your own. The WPMA has gold mining claims in Washington, Oregon, and California. You keep all the gold you find on the claims. What a great activity for young and old RVers alike. Great places to camp, great exercise, fresh mountain air, cool clear streams and the opportunity to put a little of that yellow metal in your pocket. Be sure to check out the WPMA when you attend the show. Speaking of yellow, don’t forget to pick up a copy of the current RV Life magazine at the show. Just look for the yellow RV life bags as you enter the show.

Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
