Woke up this morning and remembered I failed to thank Stratman (JT) for another evening of great entertainment. It was very much appreciated.

Canopener 12 Video

As promised......... I decided to burn a bit of midnight oil last night and get this thing finished (I was on a "roll"....terrible pun, huh). I hope you like it.

We arrived home at dark-thirty last night. Today I am finishing the unload of the Airstream and searching the internet for a 12 step detox program and weight loss combo plan. Maybe this should be part of the post-op schedule for next year. This years Can Opener was the best. Thanks to EVERYONE!!! We miss Jojo already!!!

Home Again

Susan and I arrived back in Pfafftown today from our first Canopener. Our Airstream has been re-winterized. We are looking forward to seeing our new friends on the road in coming months and returning to Topsail next year for Canopener 2013. Thanks to everyone who made this great rally possible.

Thanks to all for our first Canopener. It's one of the highlights of our Airstream adventures. We're still at Topsail and it's quite lonely!

We've posted some Canopener photos in two entries to our blog:

Smile pending law suit

BY the way, you may expect a letter from my attorney forthwith as I have instructed him to prepare a lawsuit regarding the damage to my reputation resulting from the posting of your photos and video. I have received 3 requests for attendance at future rallies and/or membership in clubs since it appeared (no kidding) and I would normally have received 5 or 6 by this time.

Miss you MORE!!!!!
Jojo (and Rick)

Your attendance at this rally is with the understanding that it is not sponsored by any person or organization. No monies are being collected for any events, and the responsibility for all expenses is borne by individual attendees. Likewise, all liability for any accidents, personal injuries, or damages (either at the rally site or while traveling to/from) is strictly the responsibility of individual attendees. In other words, this event is the same as if you were traveling/camping on your own, and happened to arrive at a campground where many other Airstreams were staying. Organizers/hosts are only acting in the capacity of “information providers” and “facilitators,” and will be held harmless from any damage claims resulting from your attendance.
