I had planned and had announced that I would be taking a group photo after the pot luck with me included....My kids look as if they were fatherless in pictures because I was taking them....so I was ready with my radio control shutter release. BUT I was not prepared to take a photo of over 100 ralliers without flood lights.

When to food is gone most gather with new and old friends. I tried 'visiting' your gatherings and enjoyed photographing the 'night lights'.

One of my favorite 'night' shots was Barb's 'ghost' spinning wheel. Barb is a very good photographer in her own right and it gives me a sense of victory to capture this view from her 'doorstep'.

Saturday's beautiful begining was repeated on Sunday. Absent for the 'day after' was the many usual preparations to leave and return to the 'normal' lives. Instead I noticed a relaxed (not just from full tummies and excess wine) 'air'. I do believe that there were many more who stayed another day or to. So I found not to many photo opportunities of 'goodbyes' but a continued socialization held over.

I will now conclude this year's photo journal of another....and yet the best rally ever.....not to out do next year's JRRV get together. 3 days isn't near long enough but more than before many stayed....to watch the 'white boxes' fill the spaces of vacated shiny aluminum. It's hard to imagine any other group of RVers enjoying each other as we do. As was once said by a 'park' associate. "FINALLY, a group with a pulse"!

My last photo is of a reflection in our Trade Wind of Tuesday's sunRISE not sunset. Another time of happy memories. Good travals my friends....see you soon.....at CASINI!

Don't make 'em like they used too....

We enjoyed a leisurely drive up HWY 49 to Diamond Springs then east on Pleasant Valley road to near our home. On Newtown Rd, about 1/2 mile from home I glanced down to check the time and mileage when, Lynn gasped. My eyes went forward to see the head and back of an adult doe. With a sickening thud and shudder the doe was airborn. We were traveling at about 35 mph with no place to pull over but a quick glance in my side view mirror showed the doe landing on her back in a ditch. Just a few minutes later at our home I tentavely checked the front of the Buick. I saw nothing....absolutely nothing that was evidence of what just happened. I did hit the doe hard but hopefully with a glancing blow and did not run over her. This morning we drove by the spot but no doe so perhaps she was just stunned and at the worse just bruised.

Yikes!!!! I am glad the doe didn't land in your lap! I tested the truck/trailer brake combo on our return trip from Lassen in August, narrowly missing a yearling fawn that dashed across the road as her mom stood watching.

Hitting a deer is no fun at so many levels....glad the Buick is no worse for wear, too. You just never expect for something like that to happen so close to home!

Wow Neil, I'm so glad that the doe didn't join you in the Buick! Glad all of you, including the Buick, are okay, if a bit shaken.

And thank you for posting all the awesome photos- it's so fun to see all the smiling faces and fun memories. Looking forward to the next adventure.

A number of years ago Lynn hit a deer driving our Camry at about the same speed. She telephoned me from the top of our driveway as she was certain parts of the deer were wedged in the openings in the front of the car....she did not want to see that. I walked up to where she had stopped but only saw about 900 bucks......dollars worth of damage to the Camry.

Neil-
Somehow you manage to get more "Adventures per Mile" than any other Airstreamers we know.. COuld be you put more miles on the Buick and the Trailer...

Glad all is OK, everything is safely parked again...
