The food looks great and so do the Airstreams. Thanks for posting pictures. Sure missed being there. Any Red Bar pictures???
Carol, we missed you! We hope to see you next year.

That's SafariSS, Rade and Liz's youngest girl. I hate to say but her name escapes me right now. They were just too cute together. Brianna is a young lady now, 5 years old. They grow so fast.

I'm not sure if anyone got Red Bar pics. There may have been a good reason for that.

I hope we can make it next year too, thanks. I'm having some elective surgery Friday though just as well, it's a good time of year to hibernate here in Michigan. They are pushing my stuffing back in. Maybe I should have had a HAHA, I wouldn't have given myself a hernia!

Pretty girls. It's nice to see the kids at the rallies. I bet there were alot of fur babies too.

I guess what happens at the Red Bar stays at the Red Bar.

Sorry to hear about the hernia...ouch. You really should use that bar thingy to lift your load equalizer bars into their brackets or were you out there trying to prove something?

Hope things go well and the recovery is quick and comfortable. Keep the laptop close by so you can update us when you get home. Just remember, walk on the same day as the surgery and you will recover faster. At least that is what they tell you at the hospital so they can usher you out the door in time to charge you for the second day's use of the room but still get someone else in there before it's too late to charge them for the same day, too!

No it wasn't the bars, with the trick hiking up the truck I can do that without any pressure. It was carrying the hitch receiver out of the back of the burb and trying to put it out of the way under the Airstream, weighs a ton...to me anyway. Or maybe wrestling the full propane bottle out of the space between the seats and it was put in sideways by the refiller. I had to rioll it up onto my lap then scoot across the seat, make a slide to let the tank follow my legs down to the ground from up there, then put it back in place. No worries I asked them to build me better, I am going bionic! Maybe we CAN tow it, but it sure is nice to have a big strong he-man around. 1st on my list after recooperation...strength training!!!!!

Just to add a little more feedback - we had a great time this past weekend. Skies were clear with temps about 70 on Thursday/Friday and cooler with light rain on Saturday afternoon. The common thread was seeing old friends and meeting new friends. The food at the Red Bar Friday night was outstanding (as usual). The food was also great at the Saturday night potluck - compliments to all the chefs. Late night fires and storytelling most evenings were entertaining (and for some a cause of headaches the next day but I can't give names because what happens at the CanOpener stays at the CanOpener). And finally, Topsail State Park is as nice a campground (I guess a resort is more accurate) as you could ask for. I didn't take many photos but here are a few of the beautiful beach. The sand is white as snow and the water is clear.

CanOpener? Doggone it, I seemed to have missed it!

If this message seems "complicated", please forgive me: I am still in recovery from Fatigue.

The Gregory E. Moore Campground at the Topsail Preserve State Park is really nice. Sue and I really enjoyed getting there Friday.

Unfortunately, I got a call from my invited friend late Saturday morning that he had broken down (car overheated, now it won't start). He was on I-10, and just got off at US 231 (just West of Marianna FL.).

We left before Noon Saturday and finally returned about 8:30 with him and his girlfriend (car was FUBAR - engine apparently seized - and we had a reservation at U-Haul for Sunday morning for an Auto Transport trailer). Towing would have cost him $3-5/mile! but the one-way rental was to be $138

Sunday, we all left at 8:00am (Central time): all four of us plus three dogs. At 9:00am, we picked up the Auto transport trailer in Panama City, drove to and then pushed his car on, then left for Winter Park (by Orlando).

Sue and I returned the Auto Transport to Panama City U-Haul about 3:00am. Only cost $61 for "local use".

Sue, the dogs and I got back to our trailer Sunday morning about 4:15am after putting on about 850 miles (750 towing). 20 hours on the road was just about killing me (although Sue drove about 30 minutes).

Sunday was recovery time, and shopping in the afternoon.

Doggone it, we missed almost everything in the Rally. I am glad I at least talked with some of the rally-goers.

We never even made it down to the beach.

The dogs traveled great! We owe them for their patience and perseverance and great temperment in spite of cramped and long travels!

Please post more pics when possible.

I was looking forward to the Potluck and the JT and Swampbillies music (although I was scared of having to listen to Kareoke and probably would have left). They were great to listen to last year (and I wouldn't have made the mistake of trying to add anything to his already complete backing tracks).

Well, left Topsail this morning about 7:45 (Eastern time) and got home about 7:00pm after a leisurely drive up all backroads (except for a short stint on I-185 from Columbus north to US 27 just south of I-85).

Thanks Steve for all your efforts and time to organize and accessorize the Rally. We look forward to next year!

Phil

Phil, I wondered what happened to you. I saw you walk by with your dogs and Sulley was having a conniption fit to meet them so I had to try to pacify him and didn't get a chance to talk to you and Sue. I was going to talk to you that evening and didn't see you...by the way, you missed your raffle prize.

Hopefully, we'll get to see you at the Springstream in May. Rest up and take care.

Phil,

Sounds like you had an adventure within an adventure. We were wondering what cool place you had left Topsail for on Sunday.

Glad you all made it back safely.

Tim

Thank You Everyone

Thanks Everyone for coming out to the rally.I have a date for the next one and it will be :
January 8th - 10th 2010
Here is the schedule so far.
Friday night load up for the Red Bar.

If we end up using the club house again for the potluck we will need to bring extra plugs for the crockpots to keep the food warm.
Sunday morning is breakfast either at the potluck site or at someone's camp site.
Artstream will be designing the new 2010 t-shirts for us.
I will need help again for next year.

Who plans to tackle these things again?

I know there is more but I will think of it later or someone will chime in.
Thanks everyone.

Steve,

I can take on the map - We would not miss this rally.

So, start a new thread already and get this one locked up.

See ya'll next year - this time we arrive early and leave late.
