I have had a slight change of plans - - my mechanic has grounded both of my tow vehicles pending minor repairs on one and major repairs on the other. I will still be attending the rally - - will be driving back and forth - - only about 55 miles so isn't much of a drive at all. I won't be there this evening but should be there shortly after 1 p.m. tomorrow as I have a crew arriving at my house at 8 a.m. tomorrow to setup my home office.

Will be looking forward to seeing everyone!

Kevin

Hope you guys are all having fun. Wish we were there. Camping in the driveway in the rain while the floors are refinished is no fun. Seeing kids graduate is way fun

Maybe next year!

Having a great time at the rally in this beautiful campground! Have already eaten too much, more great food to come this evening! Could do without the thunderstorms and rain, however!

It is a beautiful park with a wonderful large common area fire pit. Yesterday we drove to see Pamela Anderson's "Love Stream" Airstream.... I emailed my 40 year old son and told him " I have a picture of mommy on the pole" I'm sure he can't wait to see that....hahahahaha!

Live long enough to be an burden to your children....lol

Having a great time wish you were here....

What a great rally! We are already home everything packed away and talking about our next camping adventure. A big thanks to SoldierMedic for hosting the event and taking care of everything. There is a lot less firewood in the world after this weekend. HAHA.

Only 2 left :(

We arrived mid-afternoon yesterday, missing the open house but not the meeting of some great people we heretofore only knew from the Forums---and, of course, the wonderful potluck last night. Got to try the famous Armadillo Eggs and many other wonderful dishes, while visiting and sharing stories of life and life on the road.

This is a beautiful, spotless and well-maintained campground and Steve B did a fabulous job organizing and putting it all together. Thanks to Steve & Amy and all who came to share this event.

See you on the road,

Doug & Maggie

We arrived home about 2 hours ago and finished unloading everything about 45 minutes ago. Collin got a MUCH needed bath, and Amy is having her turn now. On our 2nd load of laundry, and 2nd load of dishes too.

I want to thank everyone who attended the rally this past weekend. Forum members hankandlois and overlander64 made the trip without their trailers, but a fun time was still had. We really only had two thunderstorms during the rally lasting about an hour each time, but they were very bright lightning strikes and thunder that could shake the trailer. Most of the rain went north of us. Jonathan and Jessica won the popularity contest with their margarita-ville tent serving us fresh strawberry margaritas at open house.

Big thanks to Alumatube, mcair, Airweim, Isadora, and Airstream of Chicago for donating prizes for the event. Everyone in attendance left with a prize of some kind. The potlucks were some of the greatest I have ever seen at a rally hands down (Ever had a walking taco? You would be amazed at how awesome they are!) Alumatube and myself decided to smoke pot all weekend for the potlucks

I have posted some photos below that were posted by various attendee's facebook pages.

All the Ladies in the house say HEEYYYYYYY.

I will upload photos from my camera later once I have some time.

This wood pile started taller than the green wall, and spanning all of the lumber used to keep it off the ground. Between Wednesday night and Sunday morning it all got burned.

Got home around 6:30 this evening. Awesome rally, y'all! Great food, great drink, the biggest hottest 24/7 campfire I've ever seen, and lots of great people.

A big shout out to Nancy for quenching my Ale-8 craving, and to Tradewind brother Brian for fixing all my Tradewind's stuff.

Awesome photos, Steve. I gotta go through mine and post a link ASAP.
