What a wonderful way to begin our post-retirement rally and travel experiences. Everyone was so welcoming and interesting to talk with. We like the park so much that we are staying until Thursday. If you did not get a chance to see the beach and Boardwalk you really missed a treat. God willing, we'll be back next year. Thanks to Tom and Robin for being such great hosts and for all the volunteers. We look forward to what fun Annette will cook up for next year.
Tom and Deborah.

Had a great time and gained several new friends. Beth and I had a number of folks join as Affiliate members of the Southeastern Camping Unit. One of them didn't provide an e-mail address. If you handed us a dollar and a slip of paper with your e-mail address, you are now on the unit e-mail distribution. If you handed us a slip of paper with the member number 5140, but forgot to include an e-mail address with your dollar, please send me a Private Message. Thanks!

I'll look at them later. I don't feel like creating a Yahoo account right now. I never use Yahoo.

With respect to the photo sharing account being on Flickr, owned by Yahoo, I chose to set it up there because Flickr is reasonably easy to upload to and access. One of the disadvantages of using a "free" service, such as Flickr, is users must sign up for an account. In this case, to access and use the Canopener Flickr site you have to establish a Yahoo account.

Anyone who doesn't want to use the Yahoo/Flickr site can upload photos to the Canopener 2015 thread on Airforums or the Canopener Facebook page.

It is difficult to find a no cost internet photo sharing solution that works for everyone. If someone has a better way to set up a photo sharing site, feel free to do so and let us know.

I was just surprised that you need a Yahoo account. Used to be I could use my Google account. But it has been a while since I used Flickr, and I didn't realize they changed it to Yahoo only. I don't have a problem with creating a Yahoo account, once I create yet another password that I can remember, that I haven't already used for some other account. That's why I'll do it later. First I have to review all of my other passwords so I don't duplicate one I've already used.

Never seen a woman hammer tequila like that.

What tequila? Oh yeah, now I remember. That Interstate is going to look good pulling the FC!! Artic Fox, don't belive everything you see here but you and Sharon will fit right in. You need to join us next year.

Hi Pro, check out the software called "LastPass" to end the password nightmare. Its not everyones cup of tea, but I love it.

Cheers

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to all those planning, prepping and attending Canopener!

We met some really great folks and everyone was friendly and willing to answer the 1,000 or so questions I had. I loved the open house and while I was originally hesitant to open my own house I am glad I did. We received so many tips and suggestions I had to keep a notebook. My only regret is that I didn't get to see more of the other open houses. Guess that will give me something to do next year.

To the bloody mary supplier, thank you for being so kind to my young'un. She talked her daddy out of $10 in tips so that she could buy pickles and okra at the 'food booth'. It was only after we strolled around the park looking for the 'food booth' that we realized she was actually partaking of the fixings for the bloody marys. But you never ran her off and everyone there was very sweet to her. I promise next year we will bring her own jar of pickles and okra.

Monya - just wanted you to know the possum is living inside, Abby loves it!

Thanks again and looking forward to seeing everyone again next year!

-Melissa - guessing its still too early to reserve

I'm planning to make my reservation as soon as the first post in the Canopener 2016 thread is posted telling us what the dates are and that they're taking reservations for those dates on ReserveAmerica.

It's a good idea - the main loop last year filled up in perhaps 4 weeks after announcement!

Edit: I mean when reserving for 2015
Just following the 2014 canopener.
