Dana brought me a box of crocheted snuggly animals and small blankets, for children at the House of Hope.

So sweet, and so thoughtful.

Thank you both so much.

First, I'd like to thank everyone for having us again. Our second year at Moraine View, and a great rally for sure. I had to sneak out early Sunday to get Jo Ann to the airport and many of you had already left by the time I got back to the park to break camp.

And speaking of breaking: a semi-tragedy on the way home. One of the heavier gusts of wind caused a catastrophic failure of one of the roof rack castings, freeing the cross bar and sending our canoe flying into the ditch. But not before leaving its mark on the front of the old Avion! Thankfully no one was hurt and we were the only physical casualty-counting our blessings in every form.

I'll keep you posted as I make repairs-she'll be good as new for next year's rally.

Oh no! Tough break... in her 51 years though, the old girl's been through worse I'm sure. Glad to hear it wasn't a more serious incident. It was great to meet you both... and hope to see you again!

We have such a nice mixture of people and personalities at this rally.

Everyone adds a little something different.

Jo Ann mentioned that they live "out", and come to rallies to be "in".....as in with other folks and to socialize, is how I interpreted it.

It's a good thing, for all of us.

See y'all next year,


Maggie

Mount'n man, what a drag!!! We didnt get to look inside your Avion but sure admired the exterior. Hope repairs go smooth. Blessing that noone was hurt! We took route 150 back to Champaign and with that wind blowing out of the south our 310 moho was rockin for sure. I think i need to take a little more play out of the steering, over correction was a bit wicked. Thanks again to all the folks giving us such great info on everything from best camping guides to proper setting of our awning. I also think i gained ten pounds with all that great food saturday night! DANA, so sweet of you for the gift, i swear that pot holders were on our list of things to buy for the moho!

Mike, it was really nice to meet you and Lynn too. Sorry we didn't get more of a chance to chat. Laurie had to head home Friday night so she could get to work on Sat A.M.

Great looking moho you have! Makes me really miss our 325.

Roger

What a long weekend. It was great, meeting old and new friends. We left about 1145 and home 1415. steady traffic and no hold-ups.
Jerry, today will be yesterday tomorrow.
Anyone not wanting to wait until next year to get together, we will have a rally Columbus day week end at Lowden SP. Watch the forum.

It was great meeting you two. Thanks VERY much for the tour and the pot holder, Dana... it's just too cool!

And I got the touring trike all finished and the Big Apples on. You guys need to come over and visit!

Moraine View 2014 Rally

Patty was in the hospital during the rally and just went over to a skilled nursing facility on Friday. She is there for physical therapy to get her back in shape to go home. To say the least I've spent a lot of time away from home so the mail has piled up a little. I went through it last night and found a card sent from Eric. I brought it to her this morning and we found that many of you there had signed the card and wrote some kind words to her. It made her day and she was touched by your kindness. Thank you all so much for thinking of her.

I can tell you she is much better and for the last two days, I finally saw the old spark back in her. She's off of oxygen and is progressing rapidly in being able to walk and get around. We will have some life style changes since it looks like her kidneys may no longer function properly. She will be doing home dialysis treatments which will allow her to be free from a dialysis center and allow us to still use the Airstream. So for all intentions our absence this year will be a bump in the road, and by next year she will be a much healthier and happier person.

Jack
