Hey Tom,

I think Gene just didn't want you to be able to attend since he wasn't attending himself.

We'll miss you guys.

Steve

Kind of makes me glad we are not starting out until morning, I hate setting up in the rain! Looks like you will get rain most of the day but it will be nice for the weekend and rain again on Sunday. Not bad! See you tomorrow!

ARG!!!!!

It's nice and sunny here four hours away from Branson. We will be rolling out around 1:30 or 2:00 at the latest. Tinloaf and I are going to try and meet up for a caravan down there. I hope it stops raining. I have a small leak that I haven't been able to find without my leak testing machine. Glad I brought plenty of towels.

What's for dinner Marvin????

Steve

We got home a few hours ago, unloaded the trailer, and winterized it oddly enough for the oncoming three day freeze. I just blew the lines out and poured antifreeze-Esq liquid into the traps.

We had a great time and were happy to see many great friends from over the past four rallies, and make new silver friends that will hopefully join us in the future. Amy, Collin, and I all got sunburned on Friday with beautiful weather all day. I wised up a little too late and put SPF 30 sunblock on all of us. Saturday had a little more wind, but the sun shined all day for us.

The dinners on both Friday and Saturday were amazing. As Rob Horton said it, "This is the best buffet in Branson". Speaking of Mr. Horton...he and his wife who run the Legends theater donated 34 tickets to the group at no charge. That's over $1,000 off their books to host their Airforum friends. Rob and Jeanne....you are amazing people, and the show was great (Especially the new theater). I want to urge everyone going to Branson to see the Legends in Concert show.

The campground had mast great improvements since the last rally and paved 90% of their site, and was in the process of re asphalting the main drive.

Thanks to all who made this rally another great event, and hope to see you all again soon.

Steve

We are home also, got home no problems tho it was a bit tense towing in those winds. We did stay off the wind funnel called I-44 tho and took the back way home thru Roaring River--nice senic drive and actually, a few miles shorter! Got the trailer re-winterized and partially unloaded (did I mention I HATE the cold???!!!!) and are settled down to wait for warmer weather! '

Thanks Steve for all your hard work, it was a great rally as usual and we really enjoyed Legends, thanks to Rob Horton for the tickets. We really appreciated being able to see that great show.

Hope to see you all soon at another rally near us! Maybe an impromptu get-together at Roaring River, with some trout fishing and a nice fish fry soon?????

Post Your Photos!

The winds pushed me home at an all time high 12.2 mpg with a gas engine.

As with previous rallies, I've created a page where we can post our photos. I have about 33 posted already. There's a button up on the top of the page that allows you to upload your own photos to the page and I encourage all the photographers to do so. Last year's Silver Stars & Stripes Gallery almost hit 200 photos.

There's also a button to download all the photos or you can pick and chose individual pictures.

We made it home at 3pm, tried a different route by way of Springfield, Mo. It may have been further in mileage but it cut 1 hour off of our road time. From now on when we pull the trailer we will go by way of Springfield. My sister and her husband went the back road we clocked the mileage and time as we both come the crossroad of Vinita, OK. By way of Springfield it was 9 miles longer but we were 25 minutes faster than them. Any way the wind was horrible all the way home. At one point on Hwy from Tulsa to OKC James passed a semi and the cross winds caught us and push us into him and he went off onto the shoulder. Then we had a joker pull a U turn on the turnpike and we were doing 70, James had to slam on his breaks, I am sure we left rubber marks on the highway.

All in all we had a wonderful time, enjoyed seeing all our friends and really enjoyed all the great food. I want to thank all of those who brought items to give away at the drawing. I won a beautiful quartz/sterling pendent custom made by Isadoa, I am wearing it today it is so beautiful. There was the famous crock pot Mexican hat that went to tinloaf. I'm not sure who did the flamingo machine embroidery cap and towels, there were scruffies for washing dishes, set of yard flamingos, lighted hearts, wine, flag pendent, and a cactus cookie jar with matching salt and pepper shakers. I believe Bill collected canned food for the RV park to give to the local church.

Thanks Steve for all your hard work, it was a great rally as usual and we really enjoyed Legends, thanks to Rob Horton for the tickets. We really appreciated being able to see that great show.

My wife and I sure enjoyed all the pictures. Gene has not e-mailed us the $$$ amount yet. We are getting a little worried? We ar sure we will get some idea the week. Looks like you all had fun, and we look forward to seeing you all at the next AS rally.
