Sweet home, Chicago! Back from a wonderfully fantastic time in Mackinaw. Steve and Kelly put on their A Game for this Rally. I was so blessed to meet all who attended - everyone was so friendly and fun! The Hen House Chicks laughed so much on this trip - especially upon Captain Adam's wonderful ride of waves!! Thanks Adam for all your hospitality on the Pole Dancer - she is a beauty. Looking forward to seeing you all soon - thanks again for making this a lifetime memory!!

So bummed that we missed this but Roger is really enjoying his new job. Thanks everyone for showing our friends (Joan, Fred and Tony) a good time! Maybe someday we will convince them to buy an Airstream.

Big THANK YOU to both Steve and Kelly - you guys are a fabulous team and created a wonderful rally - just the right amount of fun and free time. We had a great time and really enjoyed the events, putting real people and faces to the folks we talk to on the forums and the campground turned out to be a perfect home base for exploring both the mitten and the UP.

Thanks again,

Tina and Mike

Sophia Mom and I made it home at about 6:30 (central) last night happy and exhausted after a 2 day, 1000 mile drive home. We had such a great time! (So did Sophia and Max.) Thanks again Kelly and Steve and Captain Adam for a great rally! It was fun to meet new people and we hope to see you all again soon.

Hi Alice!

Thanks for sending Joan, Fred and Tony our way--I think they had a pretty good time and (I hope) they saw that Airstreamers are a welcoming bunch. They fit right in and hope to rally with them again in your neck of the woods. All the southern Illinois folks were amazing! Good people. I saved a s'more for you for next time. Fondly, Kelly

Mike & Tina,
I think you hit the nail on the head. I didn't know just how to say it until I read the above quote. That's EXACTLY how I feel. All the thread posts leading to the rally built up the excitement and helped us "know" each other before we "knew" each other. Thank you for all the work you did to help make this rally what it was...Pure Fun. I think your photography captured a lot of what Michigan is. Here's some of the pot luck, etc. for everyone to pluck and share from "The Hen House".
All the best, Kelly

Hey "neighbor"! I'm going to look for your Airstream rolling on I-75 or I-69 from now on. We only live 130 miles apart. Hope to rally with you again in the years to come. Thanks for jumping in with both feet. Here's some more memories...I'm not going to call them pictures anymore!

Oh Sandy, I, too had so much fun on this trip and love that we can be "The Hen House Chicks" together.

--You do realize that our rogue shrimpin' boat captain was trying to drown us. Don't you find it odd that WE were the only ones who got drenched down to the bone and I think it was Steve who attempted to improve our situation by saying, "Well at least you aren't wearing white tee shirts!" OMG

When Captain Adam gets home, I'm going to bend that little pirate over my knee and spank his butt. Then I'm gonna kiss his cheeks and love him up until he says, "Mom!! Stop it."

Thank you everyone for making Captain Adam feel so welcome. He had a lot of fun showing us around and I noticed that he joined the Airstream Forums....with a boat! Now that's a first...but it won't be the last we'll see of our salty sea dog.

I'm thinking maybe a Chicago Airstram/Pole Dancer rally next time, eh? Pictures day and night of the sky scrapers, navy pier, and PIZZA!

Love to all and here's some more pictures.

Kelly

Fun bunch!!!!

Ed,

Where to begin the thanks? Let's start with the hand crafted fish filet knife you made and donated toward fuel for Captain Adam's boat. Your gift bought gallons and gallons thanks, too, to the generosity of those who purchased a raffle card.

Now season that with an amazing pictures of the entire event and all the real-time posting you managed to sqeeze in. Thank you for getting the group shot (wearing your beaver hat in the 80 degree sun) and for photographing all the trailers upon arrival. Do you have a website or photo gallery page up?

On arrival day I dumped my trailer off to rush and go help Captain Adam launch his boat at the Marina. You have no idea how wonderful it was for me that you and Steve took it upon yourselves to set me up. My jacks were down, my awning was out, my water was hooked up, AND THE AIR CONDITIONER was on full blast. Heavenly!

Bottom Line: This Rally would be approved by Chuck Norris.

I think we should have a special medal made up for each rally and it should be given to the folks who traveled the farthest. You were right up there with our Georgia and Oklahoma families. You only have one job now..take the rest of the week to put your feet up, recover, and get and get a couple of ice cream cones. Some for you and some for the dogs. Great to know you and I'll be looking for you on the forums and hope to partner up again one day.

Hugs, Kelly
