PS I second Greg and Linda's comment on Ron's amazing talents as a videographer and editor. Steve Jobs would be so proud. That video is one of the highest and best uses of a Mac, I've seen. (I feel that you should check the lens on that video camera of yours though, it seems to add 30 lbs, not 10!)
Thanks for all you did, and do Chief and MzChief!!! and your helpers all.
h'yere h'yere y'all

I am sitting in the Cincinnati airport with a few minutes before my flight back to ATL, and was able to watch Chief's video. GREAT job, Chief! We had a great time at the rally, really appreciate everyone's efforts, and sorry we had to boogie so early Sunday morning in order to catch my flight. Thanks again all - always an event we love to attend!!

Sorry we had to cancel. Looks like a good time was had by all, and great weather too. We haven't had weather that good since the first Canopener in 2008. I've already marked my calendar for next year. Hope to see everyone there in 2013.

Reba and I really enjoyed CanOpener this year. We met old friends and made some new ones. Hats off to everyone who worked hard to allow us to have a lot of fun. Special thanks to Ron and Jenn, Russ and Linda, Joe and Annette, Greg and Pat along with the volunteers who set everthing up. We had so much laughing, talking, eating, drinking and dancing that we need some rest. If you did not have a good time at CanOpener it is your own fault.
We look forward to doing it all over again next year.

Had a Blast!

Chief, the video is a big thumbs up! Your talent is amazing. Thanks to Chief, Ms. Chief, RoadToaster, LuckyDucks, and EVERYONE else that made the 2012 Canopener so memorable.

Was so busy having fun that I didn't really shot a lot of pics. Here's a few:

You'll find a few more on Traveling with Elvis. Click on the slide show to get the Picasa album and download any that you want.

As always, it was great to see old friends that I hadn't seen in a while, and a treat to make new friends. Just a few of my favorite things: caravanning with Classic MoHo's; chili suppers; Brad's "cauldron of death"; picking calamondins with Peter, Jim, & Regina; Pete & Levon's "Bambi repair service"; sites with sinkholes; did I mention food? I miss everyone already!

Great Canopener - our 1st!

Thanks to all who worked so hard to provide a very fun time for everyone! We love the video, Chief! So many new friends and so much information shared that it will take us some time to take it all in. We love Topsail and look forward to next year's Canopener. Hope to see all of you on the road sometime.

It was a lot of fun. On the Tom Jones song I was laughing so hard I couldn't sing. Tell the ladies I'm keeping the bra's as souvenir.

Funny, I heard your brakes when you pulled in and assumed it was the AS. Glad you two made it home safely. I working on a special nametag for you next year!

Don't you realize there are severe penalties for removing our beautiful white sand from State Parks???

Oh, wait....on second look.....that isn't sand, is it??

Dream like you're going to live forever, live like you're going to die tomorrow, and dance like nobody is watching!

I would love to have the recipe for the marinated mushrooms that were served at the potluck Saturday night. They were delicious. Anybody know who brought those?
