We made it home at about 9:30! 4hours of rain! Whew!
What better to do on the way home from canopener than to have lunch at the Airstream food court at Seaside just down the street!
I have never had luck parking at Seaside, but was able to parallel park all 56' of my rig right up front. I almost had to go back to my truck to find a travel size bottle of nuvite to polish while we ate! Haha!
Great Rally! We had alot of fun....when do we start getting ready for canopener 2014?

Sites and Sounds of having Fun

Many thanks to all, who put together and played a part of a Great Canopener Rally. The cool and damp weather didn't slow this crowd down. Good food & drink, friends, and a lot of tall tales......Here are just a few images of the events that took place.

Thanks!

Robin and I wanted to extend our thanks to all those who put this rally together.....and especially to Russ and Linda. Once again we renewed old acquaintances and made new ones. The weather was not perfect, but fortunately we were blessed with breaks which allowed us to participate in all the activities and share great fellowship. Great food, wonderful folks. It just doesn't get much better than this. Safe travels and happy trails to all as we continue our Airstream adventures.

Till Next Time

It was sad to have to say goodbye, but once again, Canopener did not dissappoint. We had a great time, made even more friends than on previous get togethers, and look forward to next year. Thanks for the great video Levon, it really captured the spirit of the weekend, and thanks again to Russ, Greg, Stan, and all the others that had a hand in making things work right for everyone.
We wish safe travel to you all!

Thanks to Russ and Linda and others for their hard work to make this a great Canopener. It was our first and we hope to be there next year.

If any of our Canopener friends come to Charleston, SC give us a shout, we have parking with hook ups.

I am posting a few departure pictures.

Thanks for everything,

Henry and Melinda

Thank You

Wow! What a fun rally! And thank you so much for the compliments Ė Linda and I are very humbled. But remember, the rally was a team effort. From the badges, to the map, to the chili/wine social, to the Breakfast with the Ranger, to the bloody mary/mimosa party, to the cornhole tournament, to the potluck supper block party setup and breakdown, to the door prizes, to the entertainment, to the potluck breakfast, to the rearranging and cleanup of the clubhouse, to the doorprize drawers, there were a lot of people helping to make those efforts successful. Thanks again to all of you.


And a big thanks to Foley RV/Airstream of Mississippi and Airstream, Inc. for the fantastic door prizes. It was also great having the new Airstream trailer for viewing from Airstream of Mississippi.


I donít have to tell you that the food was great. Thank you to all the cooks out there. We gained some weight, thatís for sure.


I think one of the best things to come out of this Canopener Rally, and ones in the past, are friendships. Linda and I really look forward to seeing current friends and making new friends. Attending Airstream rallies provides a social interaction that is rarely seen with other trailer brands.


In summary, we all had a good time (except for Kate and Rob and the deer that ran into their trailer Ė that prevented them from attending the rally) and I heard many comments about people already looking forward to next year. I was tricked, I mean talked, into continuing my organizer role for the next rally. Iíll continue trying to make the rally better and even more fun. The dates for Canopener 2014 will be Friday, January 10 - Sunday, January 12, 2014. Iíll start a new thread for Canopener 2014 soon and also post a reminder when reservations can be made in Reserve America (on February 10 but earlier if you come in sooner Ė the Reserve America rule is no reservations earlier than 11 months in advance). It was really nice having almost all the sites in loop 103 being occupied by Airstreams as it really facilitated having the cornhole tournament and block party without bothering others. So reserve early Ė again!

Wishing you a happy and prosperous 2013,

Russ and Linda

I know this is bad form so don't hate me. But the only picture I was able to take this time was peeking into Russ and Linda's trailer. Hope you don't mind me sharing!

Brad,

Darn, I thought we had all the blinds shut! I guess we'll leave the disco ball at home next year. But we do like the way it reflects the lights off the shiny Airstream ceiling and walls.

I guess you've never heard the saying - what happens in the trailer stays in the trailer!

Did you want to borrow my disco ball next year?

Russ

Say it ain't so!

I'm afraid we won't be able to make it next year. The second weekend in January puts the kids (and the wife) back in school and that's too long a haul for a Saturday - even if it is for a killer Bloody Mary.

Who is this

This guy showed up two mornings in a row for breakfast, never did get his name. Saw him at the Bloody's gathering also. Seemed like a friendly sort. Said he would be back next year.

Our first Canopener, in fact our first rally. Christy and I had a great time the entire stay! Our heartfelt thanks to all who made this the success it was. We are hooked and already thinking about what location to pair with Canopener 2014.

We are overnighting in Port Richey, FL, only a bit more than an hour from Fort Desoto Park. Spaces are available (at least they were earlier today) and we get week of warm weather before heading back to Balmy Southern Illinois.

To good times, great new friends and unforgettable memories - OPAH!

Safe Travels to All,
Marion and Christy
