Carol - You were really missed, but only 1/2 way - I totally confused you with another gorgeous lady, and carried on the most animated conversation, until she worked up the gumption to question just who the hell I was talking about .

You just have no idea how much fun this rally is until you attend one. So, make your plans & reservations for next year NOW!!

Sorry we didn't hang out till Sunday am to say goodbyes!

Old maxwell had blown a fuse in the rain and although I has 120v and heat, all my 12v lights went out. Figured we lived so darn close in Austin we decided to pack up in the Saturday night rain and head home for me to diagnose the fuse issue in dry weather in Austin.

Thanks to our hosts for a great time! Although this was our first blanco rally without bandit, you guys made new memories for us.

I don't know how to start this post. I live only 11 miles from the party and couldn't pull my AS over for all the fun. Something about a a fawnky heart thing. But I did drive over every day to see some great friends from earlier days and meet some more enthusiastic Airstreamers. So, here goes:
Peter & Cindy - Only The Blanco Christmas Rally Founders - So great to see ya'll after so long. Thanks for putting some smiles on lots of faces.
To our hard working, hard partying & eminently bribeable hosts - Mary & Dennis, Lora & Mike and Deb & Ken - Ain't no way to thank you for all the time & effort, all the thought & work each of you put into making this year's gathering so very special and memorable. You guys rock. How can you ever top this year's gift "exchange" & potluck dinner?
Sean & Rondi - Great to see ya'll again. Please plan to join us for the whole shebang next year!!
Sid & Bonny - "Better than sex"? Nuff said, everybody else can just wonder about that comment. Great to see you both again & I hope to camp with ya'll again soon.

The Settlement RV Park north of Blanco never looked better, with all that classy aluminum lined up in a row.

Every minute of this rally was simply a ton-a-fun, even if I had to go home to my warm king size bed & endless hot shower every night. I'm making my 2012 reservations as soon as Parks & Wildlife will let me.

My thanks to all who were so kind & welcoming.

Yeah, but I heard you can lift over 10lbs on a daily basis without breakin' a sweat!

Is it dry enough that you were able to figure it out? Hope it was something simple.

We also had an electrical issue, tripped the GFCI and it would not reset. But that just cost us a few outlets and the porch light. Figured I would look today but it is pouring down rain in Corpus and it seems the rain will stay with us a few days. Have not even disconnected or emptied the truck...ahhh well...I will get it fixed before Inks Lake!

Kevin, I was wondering if that was yo guys hitching up after dinner. Guess it was and sorry to hear it. It was great to see you guys out. We need to hookup on another local campout this season, or meet over at Garner.

We survived that rain with no electrical shorts (after I noticed several of the lights IN the water, I unplugged ALL of the outdoor lights. We survived the rain with only one leak, right above the bed. Our campsite flooded pretty well, and I can't tell you how much mud we brought in between dogs, girls and us. The entry rug is a throw away!

The girls enjoyed the labyrinth game that Sid brought; Good thinking! I didn't get a chance to visit with or meet many people as I ended up dealing with tired and cold little girls near the end but I was able to catch up with a few yesterday and my way down to the river to fish.

BIG thanks to all of the organizers and gracious hosts! They picked up the cost of the pavilion area, despite my urging to request donations to offset the out of pocket costs. Without that covered pavilion, the pot luck would have been SUNK! Literally. The stockings were fantastic and the girls were thrilled to find them in the morning. Thanks to Chuck and Skye for bringing the keg of Blanco's finest! About a gallon is still adorning my fridge here at home.

I was able to snap a few pictures of folks crossing the low water bridge as they were leaving around 1:30. I'll edit them and post them.

Our Ninth Annual Blanco Christmas nonrally/rally

I personally want to thank everyone that attended, campers at the park, campers @ the settlement, those who stopped in, you guys made our rally a great success. Thanks for all the help! From the posts that I have read so far on the forums, sounds like everyone had a wonderful time. Just want you all to know how much we enjoyed hosting and entertaining you guys, even though our singing may leave a little to be desired. I did end up with a glass lid to a crock pot, it is large rectangular shape, also have a white fitted sheet let me know if its yours? And thanks to Johnny I have the rhinestones imprinted on my butt from his incredible fire! Special thanks to Frank and Mike for their delicious bribery of tequilla shots! May this Christmas season bring you all joy, happiness, peace and prosperity! Keep the faith and may God bless you one and all!

Hey everybody! Wanted to chime in and also thank all the hosts for such a fun weekend. Sure hated to get up in that cold rain on SUN morning and hook up and head back to Dallas. The only good part of that was getting home to six critters that had missed me for two weeks. Sure enjoyed meeting everybody and having such great food and laughs. Will be a great Christmas memory for quite some time. Hope to see everybody soon! If you head up anywhere near Dallas, or are planning another camping trip in the state and want some company - holler

Thank you everyone for coming to the Christmas Rally. Ken and I just made it home. We had a great time and want to thank everyone for coming and making this year a HUGE success. Dennis thank you for for helping us girls every step of the way. The Airstream decorations and flamingos where difficult to judge, you all did such a wonderful job. I can't wait until next year!
