Rally On

2air is right...
Can Opener 2008 needs to be early to justify its name.

Venture Out is a lot like Topsail with concrete sites and full hook ups.
Camped there back in 1977, was concrete even then.
Almost full of full timers now, I think you can buy your lot.

St.Andrews has much more to offer for daily activities and atmosphere, but has water and power only, dump stations are located thruout campground.
Oh...and no cable TV, but you can drive tent stakes.

Checked, and they do still have a few sites at St.Andrews for the week.

Venture Out and St.Andrew info is for Memorial Day 2007, not hyping for the next Can Opener.

'Rally On' to those still enjoying the event...this is really just an intermission till next year.
Woodstock would be proud of y'all
Bet you have some great leftovers for supper!

Who won all the prizes?
Photos of Sunday breakfast?

4th thru 6th sounds like it would meet the legal requirements.

Just don't tell anyone if you get there in December and you could still join in,
Or leave and come rat back.

People

You know...There were so many people that I have met at the rally I have already forgotten who was who.I remember several but not all unless I were to see them again.So hard to remember that many times.I do remember most of you all though by your forum names.
I am pretty sure though most everyone(And then some)will be back to do this again.We probably had seen about 6 extra Airstreams that were either lurkers on the forum or just passed thru and joined in the festivities.It was great to see that.Even our SOB neighbors were invited in to join.
I wished I had the chance to see the raiders of the lost ark but the little one was getting tired.
Thanks for bringing the movie screen Nilesrob.I hope we meet up in the october georgia rally.You have to bring that screen to that one also.That thing is awsome.
It was so funny because people in the park were taking pictures of it and also stopped by to watch the movie.It does not get any better than that.

Thanks to all!

Thanks, Devoman for starting the ball rolling and keeping up with it as it gained momentum.

Thanks to all who participated. Sue and I had a great time (with Buffett and Gus too).

Drove just over 12 hours today to make it home. Not one mile on Interstate from Topsail to Ellijay GA. Great County, State and US highways, with very little traffic (until I got close to Carollton GA). Then I lost traction going up in my driveway and had to back down my hill into my neighbors drive and make another run at it. (Phew, the burning rubber from tires slipping on gravel...).

Special thanks to David Alan for lending me a drill when I needed to rivet my battery box back on. I had tools including bits, but no drill. Thanks again.

Hello everyone and thanks for helping to create such a grand rally. To make it even grander for us, we came home to a brand new granddaughter! We were overnighting at Tombigbee State Park outside Tupelo, MS, on our way home last night when the phone rang at 2 am. Yikes! Do you all know what those 2 am calls do to you??? Anyway, it was our son (yes, the same one who headed out beyond Denver during the first blizzard this winter for skiing) saying they were headed to the hospital, 2 weeks early. We drove as quickly and safely as we could, but she was born at 2 pm this afternoon and we got to hold her finally at 8:30 tonight. What an incredible ending to a great rally week! Just had to share this "happy" with new forum friends~G

Talking It was worth traveling 1422 miles.

I tried to leave NY on New Years day but the weather was hard rain and gale force winds.

Waited till 1 AM Tuesday drove to NJ to get over the bridge and avoid the traffic getting off Long Island.

The trailer wasn’t riding right it was nose high in fact the frame scraped a bit leaving a gas stop.
I found a trailer parts place in lower NJ and bought ( $170) longer drop bar that leveled it out pretty nice.

Not being used to towing I was doing about 60mph in NJ Del MD then by VA was doing 65-70.
With the 8.1 in tow mode and cruise control I was getting 10.8 – 11 MPG with a ton of power.

Real happy with the 2500HD and the 6 speed Allison trany.

Stopped in NC woke up to 29 degrees , needed to get south……….arrived at Topsail Wed nite about 9PM

---------------------------------------

We had a great time, even though some thought I was spending tooo much time working on my trailer.

It was not only our first trip with the AS it was our first rally.

Was most impressed by the friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

The food and camaraderie was great, look forward to meeting all of you and others at the next rally.

We took a 6 hour trip to Crushed Canyon north of Tampa, nice place great spa. Headed to the keys on Saturday, then home.

Special thanks goes to Phil Gobie, Ron, raptorron the Dyna Bead expert ( he helped put ‘em in) Herb, jbond Greg, ptrvr and Ted, Klattu for the drill.

PS: we are now proud owners of a set of Original Flamingos we won

Way to go Max and Georgia! At my young age (in my mind anyway), I have 2 granddaughters, 6 and 1. Never understood the excitement until the first one came along.

Hey Lipets, did you ride in the trailer to check on the Dynabeads ? No kidding, could you feel any difference?

Greg
