What a Hoot!

We have made it back to the trailer park that we call home. Thanks to all for coming out to play and thanks to all that pitched in and pulled this shindig off. The rain was a litttle disapointing, but we overcame in true MD fashion and turned it into several very happy hours. The owl, the zip-line, the food, the pool, the raffle, the first timers, the camp fires were all awesome. I hope that everyone returns home safely.

Wow!

Larry and I haven't laughed so much or so hard in a long time! What a great weekend. As usual Rhonda and Dave did a heap of organizing and setting this whole shindig up. It was awesome and we all had a grand time. Not to mention wonderful food, some great "very happy" hours, and super folks who pitched in. Also, thanks to "Woody" and Mike for the firewood! I don't think there is a more casual, more fun rally than the M-D group. We look forward to the next one! Dave says the third week of August, 2011. It's on our calendar! Did someone say that Ralph was bringing corn and more recipe??????

Airstream packed away back in the barn (3 weekends until the next camping trip), the yard is mowed, garbage out, flatbed trailer hooked up to the truck for tomorrow, car seats moved around, ground mat cleaned up, trailer fridge cleaned out. Yup, the party of over.

A big shout out to Becca and Molly for being friends with Parker this weekend. I'm sure it won't be the last time they play together.

A special thanks to all the kids who kept Mason busy and made sure he was safe on the playground. A special shout to DJ. I saw when you made all the big kids stop the merry go round and then you picked up Mason and then sat next to him. Awesome, DJ. I was able to sit back down and the pavilion and rest easier that Mason was being looked after. Good job.

This was our first Detroit-Metro and not one that will soon be forgotten. We thought the campground was awesome with it's layout. Maybe not the best for keeping all the shiny trailer together, but the best for having a very central gathering place which is also within easy eye-shot of the playground. Really cool! I've never been to the usual D-M campground (KC I think?); but for those of us with kids, I can't see something being much better.

-Jason

Thanks for making the "Newbies" feel so welcome. We had a great time and are absolutely going to be there next year-and hopefully other Airstream Rallies too.

Paco is back to Paul today.
Great job Dave and Rhonda!

How can it be over already????

A year of waiting and "poof" it's over just like that! The good news is there's only 363 days until the next Metro-Detroit rally!

Another awesome job Rhonda and Dave -- it was great, as always!

We arrived home safetly,today(Monday) without incident. It was kind of hectic day on Sunday and I really dont think we were able to say GOODBYE to everyone.We kinda had to hurry because it was my MOM's 98th birthday and I sure didnt wanna miss the party.
Thanks Dave and Rhonda,I know its been said many times and Here it is again THANK YOU THANK YOU. What a great time we had,as usual.
Ralph,thanks fer the corn I did enjoy it,and by the way,whats receipe look like???. I think that's why I didn't make the campfire and didn't feel so well even Sunday morning at breakfast. For those who dont know, I dont drink,but I think I did,LOL.
Mike
You are very WELCOME. I know that item will be put to good use,instead of rattlin around in the rear compartment of our AS.
GOOD LORD WILLING,count us in for next yr. It was great to see old friends and make some new ones. Hope to see you all again at least one more time this yr.

Smile Thanks for all the hard work Dave and Rhonda!

What a fabulous campground too! It was so well maintained. The restrooms were so tidy as well as the grounds. Not to mention the security and the perimeters well done! You get the feeling people are just looking out for you when you stay there.

I'd recommend this campground to anyone for a nice rally spot!


Great job Rhonda and Dave. Thanks for all you did to make it fun for the kids!
