Here are some random photos of the park. I was pretty involved in the festivities, and couldn't take photos while "working". There were a couple of others snapping photos, hopefully they'll join in with more pictures:

I second that, with a toast to Paula for throwing the party, and a toast to Terry and Marie for outstanding technical support. And a toast to all of us for having the good fortune to be there and share in all the fun.

On a personal note, thank you to all for your concerns for me and my unexpected, unwanted guest Mr. Vertigo. He was determined to screw up my good time but I was more determined for him not to. The drive home today was a bit of a challenge but I am home and the shiny side is still up.

Sure good to see old friends and to make new friends. The "old friends " group just gets bigger and bigger. Dang I love this place!!

Happy trails, safe travels, and we'll definitely see you down the road.

John

Today dawned gloomy, with some rain early on. It's really supposed to come down tomorrow, with over 3 inches expected. Here are some more photos, kind of grey, but still scenic:

Frank and I thank everyone for such a good time; we especially enjoyed meeting y'all and making new friends................looking forward to seeing everyone again.

We agree with Sandlapper, many thanks to Paula, Terry and Marie for all their work/planning. Also, a boatload of thanks to Terry for his talking us through some things for "Lola".

We arrived home around 5:30, picked up our furry member of the family (Cooper, a 9mo. Goldendoodle), grabbed a bite to eat and unloaded. Whew!

Deb

Dear All,

Thanks to Paula, Marie and Terry for all their planning, support, assistance and breakfast! I was a little nervous about my first rally in a TW with no kitchen, bathroom, furniture or much else (though not a bit worried about driving 3 1/2 hours with no BRAKES!) and I would like to say I have never had a better time, felt more welcomed or been surrounded by so many kindred spirits. Not to mention the food! Which on my part would not have been possible without my neighbors Pete and Phyllis letting me use their stove. I was so inspired by Terry's lesson in electricity that I got a plug for my lights and brakes, just spent an hour wiring it (slow, that's me) and I now have running lights except for where the bulbs are burned out (?) and hopefully brakes though I was too tired to hook it back up and take a spin. But nothing caught fire immediately, always a good sign. I am so grateful for the knowledge shared and the time spent helping me, many thanks to Terry. I hope any of you that are passing through Charlottesville will know that you are always assured a berth here or at my farm, which is lovely for boondocking.

Cheers!

Janet

Many thanks to Paula, Terry and Marie for their leadership in putting on a great rally. This was Brenda's first rally and I think that she had a great time. What a great bunch of people we met at the rally. Thanks for that delicious martini Doug.

Here are some more photos.

For those of you wanting more info on the how-to's of Dutch oven cooking, there is a link to Byron's Dutch Oven Cooking in the Stella's kitchen sub forum of the Airstream Lifestyle forum.

This will tell you everything you need to know, and includes lots of great recipes.

I would post a link but this d--- iPad doesn't let me.

Just find the web page you want, hold your finger on the address bar after the page finishes loading. You will get choices that pop up like cut and copy. Touch "copy", it will copy the link. Then come back here and touch the reply window, you will have the choice to paste. It takes longer to talk about than to do:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f484...ing-40090.html

Maybe that can be a seminar next time. "Using your iPad without pitching it out the window in frustration".

Wow what a great weekend!

Wow what a great weekend!

There were a lot of firsts for us this weekend. First time at Virginia Highland Haven, first Rally, and a First time for meeting most of the great folks who attended. Hopefully this is just the beginning of lasting friendships. The spirit of openness and camaraderie was simply terrific.

Phyllis and I had a great time and we look forward to seeing all of you again at future rallies or just on the road.

Paula, a special thanks to you, the "Hostess with the Mostess". I know you said that all you did was post a message about getting together, well look where it led! You deserve all the credit.

Here are few pictures that I took. I believe Phyllis (Phoedis) has some as well and will get them posted as soon as she can. She hit the ground running this morning and so it probably won't be today.

Oh. . How simple. I'll try it.

Thanks!
