mr. whopper,

where have you been? i've missed you.

other than the spot for richard and jan which is i think (dangerous) is the first site on the left. (they need to check you in), pick any spot, any one. there's lots. keep the Hemi close, but there lots of room in back...

i'll be on the right side (i think it's the right side, if not it should be, i'm really right and red) , about site 210. old business is good business.

kevbo

Mike,
Jan & I will greet you when you arrive. Kevbo is our backup, good help is hard to find . We would like everyone to check in with us when they arrive. We also have a welcome package for eveyone.

The area is arranged in a circle with the ramada and fire pit in the center. All the spots are good. We can help you pick out a spot if you like.

It looks like we will have plenty of pets. Airstreams and pets just seem to go hand in hand. The park rules are pretty standard: Pets on leashes and pick up after them. If you want to let you dogs run, there is plently of open spaces just a short walk from the area (I never told you this). If you want a wet dog, our lab found a small creek that runs just behind the area.

Mike,

We like it when all the newbies arrive during Happy Hour. That way if things go wrong while you back in or set up. We can all be enjoying our Cocktails while watching.

Seriously, Don't worry about a thing. Kevbo will point out your spot and everyone will leave you alone (they are being polite. not ignoring you) unless you ask for assistance. If you want a guide or adviser just tell Kevbo.

Nearly everyone will have dogs and/or Cats and of course Kevbo's Coors drinking Horses.

Here's the wierd part about these Rallies... These people are very nice and will gladley help you out just cause you asked. Strange group...

ya know....
I've sniffed around other rally threads to see how usual the banter is on this thread.
considering the ratio of serious:humorous:somewhat bizzare posts, this group seems to be ecclectic and bent on fun
we'll be fine... seems like we have happened onto a group that match our proclivities pretty well...
in all the excitement, i've lost track. Did anyone volunteer to be the photographer for the rally? I'll have our Cannon A630 along. I have been required to collect some record of Mr. Bo's antics. I'll be happy to upload whatever i get to a webzone for viewing and downloading if that is useful.

looking forward to meeting everyone!

We can't make the FCU Rally, but we will be there in spirit from afar with other support groups (Malibu), and we too believe that there is a match with "proclivities", although some may be outside the realm of sane discussion.

Axel hinted that he wanted to be the phot guy, and then he went off on some ink slinging thing. I suggest that everyone bring a camera. I have set up an area for anyone to post pictures on this forum. Click on PHOTOS, then select RALLY PHOTOS and you should see an area for this rally. Let's see if anyone can get a picture of Kevbo without a hat on!

Kevbo without a hat? No problem, he's gotta sleep sometime and unless he sleeps standing up with his hat on. Or, how about a 3am fire drill?

photographer for the rally?

Hi Mike,
AZFlyCaster and I have been experimenting with sharpcast.com as a photo sharing website. Send you e-mail address and you can be invited to what has been started there.

Mr. fly,

you of all people, after camping together, but not together, and giving me awning lessons and such.

you know, i always sleep "up right". you can't see the shirt otherwise.

it's the exact reason i never "sit down" at a potluck.

mr. whooper,

i'm green, and as such share your consideration of the planet by limiting yourself to such small file sizes, and the conservation of sandy beaches everywhere.

Mike,
2048x1536 is nice for making prints but is overkill for posting on the web. In round numbers, the typical monitor screen resolution is about 90 pixels/inch.
This means you would need a monitor about 22" wide to fully display an image that large.

Big images also quickly use up your online directory space.

Jerry, Thanks for the reminder on that service.
It would be nice if folks could put some words to the picture as well. I have this picture from my last rally and I can't remember the names that go with the faces. I know that they are all related...
