Greg, I just looked at your Silver City and City of Rocks stuff. Nice travel log and very nice pictures! I know you will get around to doing the same for the FCU Labor Day Rally.

Well, the Williams 4CU Labor Day Rally came to a close this morning... We had a great time...and we are the newest members of the 4CU...after such a great rally who wouldn't join this group?! Thanks to all of those in attendance who made us feel so at home and welcome... and thanks, Brad & Julie (flyfshr) for making it happen... And Airstream25...there will be pictures!

And thanks to PeeWee for coming up to join us at the rally...it was great to meet you!

NOTE: In post #98 above....that is Harry & Marge (not Larry)...Sorry about that Harry! Forgive me?

After our goodbyes this morning (first day without rain) we headed to Pine Grove Camp Ground in the Coconino National Forest, off Lark Mary Road just SE of Flagstaff for a few days...we are there now, enjoying the cool, quiet forest...

We reckon the rest of the gang will be hitting their homes this evening sometime....

We're home now and have started to settle in. Thanks to all who came out and for all the wonderful conversation and camaraderie. The food wasn't bad either. There certainly was plenty for everyone. The 4CU is a little stronger with a few more members joining us this weekend. We had a great time. Here are a few pictures to get you started. None incriminating just yet, those are to follow.

I also want to thank Dale and Susan for joining us on Sunday for the open house and potluck. He graced us with early caravan stories and explorations. Your knowledge and memory are amazing. Thanks for sharing both.

Julie and I got up early and went into town to have breakfast and then headed out to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. It was overcast most of the time we were there and started to rain just before we planned on leaving. Here's a couple of shots from around the Watchtower.

Had a wonderful time this weekend, I'm so glad we could make it. Now if we could just win the lottery we could see you all more often. Met new Airstreamers and looks like some of them joined. Glad to hear it, it's a great Unit. It's always nice to meet new Airstreamers that are as crazy as we are. Hope to see everyone sooner than later.

Thank you Brad and Julie. It was a great rally.

I got to see old friends I don't get to see often enough and meet some new ones I look forward to seeing again.

For me the weather was wild and perfect!

Pee Wee, thanks for bringing the Pith helmet for me to see. I forgive you now for all those really bad (but funny) "pith" jokes.

So when are we gonna do it again?

Great rally, thank you Brad and Julie!
It is always great to see your old friends and it's even better when you make some new ones. The weather changed every 30 minutes, but that never slowed us down a bit.

One of the highlights of the weekend for me was the chat we had with PeeWee. The reading of the Wally Byum Creed was a very special thing and in many ways it defined who we are as a unit of the club. Thank you again, Dale for sharing so many things with us. It is greatly appreciated.

4CU Labor Day Rally

Brad and Julie:

I know I am just echoing what many of our new friends have said about the rally. At least the weather stayed a little cooler than what it was in Cottonwood. Both Lou and I enjoyed ourselves with the many new friends we now have and especially the discussion we had with Dale on Sunday evening. It is nice to know that the 4CU is on the path that Wally intended for his caravaning club to take. We will see many of you in Albuquerque and later on (hopefully) for the Cottonwood rally over president's day.

Bob and Lou

To chime in here,

Thanks Brad and Julie for a great weekend, and all of the work you put into making the rally a success! We had a great time. This reconfirms how glad we are that we joined the 4CU which includes a great bunch of folks.

Hope to see you soon!

TB & Greg:

No harm done! My ego, though bruised, will emerge unscathed as past names of Henry, Harold, Harvey, and ####head have toughened it. It is, however, a good thing that you got Marge's name right.

See you around the M-ball.

Thank you for forgiving us, Harry...it won't happen again, for sure!

Got home last night (Wednesday) after spending a few extra nights after the Labor Day Rally at Pine Grove Camp Ground (nice camp ground) off Lake Mary Road southeast of Flagstaff. And who should show up but Jimmini! What a nice thing...enjoyed seeing Jim again and visiting a couple of times so soon after the Rally...or very first post-rally-running-into with another 4CU member and forum member! The Girls were pleased to see him again, too!

Left there Wed AM and headed home..(Take care of the place, Jimmini...we'll see you down the road again...) As we were making our way through Mesa going south to highway 60 to head to Tucson we had a tire valve fail and had a complete flat within minutes...the Pressure Pros saved us and we got off the road in town safely, jacked the Bambi up and got the spare on and headed home...the moral of the story is to switch out those rubber valve stems for metal ones... We are having this done on Monday...don't want that to happen again!

We want only Happy Trails for you all!
