Airstreams on the River

I was down at the river fishing when several rigs where departing. The water was still and the light was OK. If you've ever heard the adage "the best camera is the one you have with you", these are from my iPhone 4S and turned out pretty good for, well, an iPhone. Of course, If I remember all the rigs, the first pictures is Carnegie1935, 87MH, bwoodtx and casa3805. If anyone want's a full size original, PM me!

Enjoy!

beautiful shots

wonderful pictures of everyone coming across the Blanco River, this is what it 's all about, seeing the shinny rigs back at the River, and our Friends inside, even as they drive off in to the SunRise...see you all down the road!

Anyone who has replaced an original univolt knows the answer to that.
Dennis should know 1st hand. Back when I was young & clueless (maybe 3 years ago now?), Dennis offloaded a 300 lb. Univolt on me at the Vintage Rally in San Antonio, saying "You're gonna need this for your '54 Cruiser!! I donated it to the US Navy for use on an aircraft carrier. And yes, this was the rally where an unnamed couple (see above) redefined the defination of in-your-face bribery, with a huge tiki decorated tent & 2 very young ladies dressed in nothing but coconuts & grass skirts serving adult beverages to one & all over the age of 12!! It was at this rally where I learned how much fun this wonderful couple can be.

Last I heard, the US Navy ultimately donated the Univolt to the Panamanian Navy.

Thanks to Everyone

Another very successful Blanco Rally.

I urge all to add thanks (Rep Points) to all who have added to the enjoyment of the get together. The "Thanks" button is found on the bottom right corner of each individuals post. These Rep Points and comments are shown on the individual users Control Panel (CP). Please let them know that their contributions are appreciated.

Special thanks are due to Pahaska, Jimarq, Westfalia, Casa3805 and anyone else who posted pictures of the event, once again I failed to take a single pic and have to depend on the generosity of other participants to provide digital memories. If any one has any additional pics please post them.

Also, add some special reps to Casa3805 for providing the Coffee Porter - I think a quarter keg (7 1/4 Gallons) will be sufficient for future celebrations. Also, if you are in the area, stop by the park and thank the camp hosts, first of all, they did not check the alcohol content of the Coffee Porter (even though it was being dispensed out of an iced aluminum pressurized container), and most importantly for the super service and friendly smile and demeaner they always provided.

Thanks (reps) are needed for Whitsend and CoryandNat for providing the excellent firewood - it would not be the same camping experience without the communal fires. MJMarkhams70 for the first place site decorations prize (the big marine cooler), and Andy at InlandRV for most of the other site prizes need to be recognized. Don't forget CatStream for the Flamingo prizes.

Lastly (but certainly not least) to PeterH - the founder of this Forum Rally. Thanks to Peter not only for hosting the Dirty Santa gifting, put for some really special help in putting this years rally on. A pat on the back, personal thanks, and rep points to EVERYONE else who pitched in an made this most recent rally a special and memorable event.

A couple things of very important note. While it is true that we took on the extremely burdensome task of "making a phone call and reserving the keg". The donations we got nearly paid it off entirely. I think we were about $40 short of a complete payoff, and I am sure I drank at least $40 worth of coffee porter. It was well worth it.

And we ended up having to leave a day earlier than planned so we had to ask Sid and Bonnie to turn it back in for us on Monday. That was probably a bigger hassle than picking it up was!

So while lots of folks have thanked us for the keg... Please know that it was not a big deal, we had help getting it to and from the site, and the donations took care of the cost. What a great time!

Next time I will run our decorations off of the generator so I do not trip breakers! Look out!

Thanks Chris for taking and posting the pictures of the folks crossing the bridge on Sunday. I have it as my desktop and every time i turn my pc on it makes a big smile appear. It is the only picture of my mh on the road. Thanks for the picture and the grin on my day. good friends, good conversations, good food and good memories priceless.

Thanks Jimarq for the great pictures of our hosts. You got them at their best. They are such a wonder group at hosting this rally.

Looking forward to dec 2012 Kay
