Tim Viall, new TCT California state representative


Tim and Susan Viall have been retired for five years and have traveled extensively through the US and Canada with two Serro Scotty trailers, a ’58 Scotty teardrop and a ’64 Scotty Sportsman (just rebuilt from the frame up). Their first vintage trailer, acquired 11 years ago, was a Kit Kamper teardrop, with which they toured the west. In retirement, Tim has a “light career” as a travel writer/photographer, writing a weekly travel column and travel blog for the Stockton Record newspaper (http://blogs.esanjoaquin.com/valleytravel).

Tim’s business career included 20 years managing non-profit organizations, including  the Emergency Food Bank of Stockton/San Joaquin. His earlier career spanned 21 years in daily newspapers with The Stockton Record, The Toledo Blade, OH, the Peninsula Times Tribune, Palo Alto, CA, Spokesman-Review, Spokane, WA, and the Sacramento Bee. Susan worked as an accountant for a homeowners management company for well over 20 years. The Vialls reside in Stockton, CA, and have two daughters and three grandchildren, all in the greater Sacramento area.

Tim and Susan are delighted to be representing Tin Can Tourists in California, and are planning to take in TCT and vintage trailer events in this state and the west. They would love to stage a TCT Rally, perhaps in the Lake Tahoe area in the fall. Contact Tim at tviall@msn.com, or phone (209) 969-3875.
