Did anybody else suffer from hail damage from the storm this morning? The sides of my trailer that were exposed to the East and North (front and street side of my trailer) were heavily pockmarked.
I must have slept through it.
Makes me ill.

I suspect folks who were able to attend will be posting up here when they get time.

First a big ole SHOUT out to Soldiermedic, his lovely bride and great son. Wonderful job of hosting and looking after folks.

I liked meeting everyone, all new friend and blessings to know you!

Although we "signed up" late, we had awesome home for Mjolnir our Excella. When we arrived we were sent to a specific site which, upon checking, was occupied. A quick check with the "front office" and it seemed someone had parked in our assigned spot because the posted site numbers were not clear. That's just one of these things, y'all!

As it turned out we were smack between some great folk and truly blessed! Yes it helps that I could comprehend their speech, but you will have to ask them if mine was good enough. (That is a Cajun truism, y'all just gotta unnerstannn.

I arrived Thursday soon followed by a surprise, my wife was given time off to meet me early ( she was bringing two of our Granddaughters in Friday when their summer vacation started. )

Although it meant driving back to Austin, we managed to do that and got some errands run. We got back in Time for the potluck and what a spread! No one left hungry I am fairly sure.

Soldiermedic brought out his own "hot sauce" and I think it may replace my standard " Tabasco" sauce for many meals. In fact I had some to ought at home !

We had a great trailer was in the early morning Sunday. Although damp our spirits were good and warm. We packed, said our "travel well till we meet again" slaps on the back and handshakes, swapped email etc. then headed out " on time!

These times are memories for us, sure, but thanks to all who shared this time in their lives, we are the better for it.

Oh, because of your patience my granddaughter played a tune for her parents when we arrived home and she did not miss a note because she practiced! Thank you!

Warren,

We heard two hail hits this morning, but we are not showing any pock marks. Sorry to hear about your trailer.

Aside from the rain this morning, it was a great weekend. It was pretty hot, but the mornings were cool, and we had a nice breeze in the evening. Many folks were first timers to the event while some were on their 2nd or 3rd time attending, and we even had a bunch of folks attending their first Airstream rally event. The dinners were fantastic, the river was refreshing, and the fireside conversations were full of laughter.

Thanks to everyone who came out and shared in the good times. Another thanks to those who donated prizes, money for keg ice, a tarp, or their talent as an artist. Without ya'll this rally wouldn't have been anything compared to what it was.

It was really nice to have some other kids attending this year..I hope it continues in the future.

Sid, tell Sammy that his Rabbit is always welcome at any potluck!

See you all down the road!

Steve

Steve,
Thanks to you and Amy for putting together such a great rally. We had fun last year, but I think this year's rally topped it. Enjoyable company, outgoing friendliness, and good weather made for a relaxing and enjoyable time.
Excepting my dutch-oven smore fiasco, food this year was better than ever. Hopefully some of you will post recipes here (I liked the potato salad, hint). I'm still working on the carbon deposit on the bottom of my pot.
Thanks too to sponsors who provided prizes and the beer; to Camper Clinic II for displaying a new Airstream International at the rally. It drew a lot of interest, a beauty.
Seeing so many Airstreams together is a beautiful sight.
Hope everyone gets home o.k. with happy memories.

Ditto to you Steve for pulling together another great low stress rally. Only problem is that it's just too short. Wish to have more time to hang out, tube and tell stories.

I am not sure how we are going to top our first rally!! Milby and I had a great time meeting the group and sitting in the circle of friends each night. Loved the beer and food. Even the rain added to a wonderful adventure. Hope to meet up with y'all again.

Jim & I made it home fine last night and found our home in great shape except for water and mud inside the shop flloor. The neighbor said we might want to get our roof checked for hail damage since we had small and large hail coming down Fri night. Also the rain guage showed 10 inches! Wow, what a storm season this has been and more on the way this week...Oh well, life in Oklahoma! We had a great time meeting everyone and enjoyed the food and fun on the river! Thanks again Steve and Amy for being great hosts. Other than our Airstream problems, we had a great time! Will post a few of my pictures later.
Debi
