Here are a few highlights of the rally.
The oldest trailer award went to Bead (flyfshr) for his 59 Trade Wind.
Jan's Award went to Axel (SilverToy) for his monster 34 footer.
The big surprise came in the longest drive catagory where Mike (MYoung) took honors by picking up an additional 200 miles by leaving his wallet at home and going back 100 miles to pick it up. Very creative!
The people's choise award was won (after a tie breaker vote) by Brad (flyfshr). Way to go Brad!

Lots of prizes were given away, I even won a nice battery monitor from Randy at Best Convertors! Thanks Randy!

In the above pictures
We had a birthday girl at the happy hour! Joan (SkyValley) was surprised by a cake and the singing of happy birthday! Thanks go to Kevin who went out and found a very tasty cake for Joan.

Kevin got a special award for being the best backup host you could ask for. After I went to bed on Thursday he went out and found 2 more trailers on the road, got them to the area and helped them get parked. Thanks Mr Peep!

Great time

We just got home in Las Cruces.... trailerless! We heard such good things about Oasis in Tucson, that we left it there for service. Thanks for the tip. It certainly is a modest (I'm being kind) place.

Pat and I really had a great time and enjoyed meeting everyone. The food and fellowship was great, as was the advice from those that know a lot more about this "sport" than we do. This was our first "boondocking" experience. No problems. Pat relaxed after she found out we had a 50+ gallon water tank and not 20!

Attached is a photo I took from the hill to the north of the campgound. I hope it goes through OK.

George and Pat Hatfield

In order to insure that Kevbo makes it to any rally....all ralliers must chant "KEVBO..KEVBO..KEVBO..KEVBO..KEVBO..five times repeated daily (at 5:00 PM) for two weeks prior to the first official day of the rally. It has worked for us every time, well almost. The one exception was when Goin Camping forgot to chant on the third day prior to the rally, and so, the Malibu group suffered, and the FCU rally became famous.

Kevbo makes the rally real.

I am so pleased that our first rally went so well - congradulations to Richard and Jan and everyone else who made it so successful - we promise to have lots more. For those who did not make it, you will see a full write up in our units newsletter - we plan to do "Rally Reports" so all our unit members and associate members can read about what they missed

Send a message via Skype™ to Zeppelinium
and the winner is

(btw, yes on the peeps per the preceding post)

Brad! (flyfshr) winner of Best Of... and Oldest (Airstream).

Here's a few shots of the very impressive '59 Tradewind that Brad has crafted. The Juno track lights (12 volts) are particularly nifty, in that they can be snapped in and out easily--you see the blue mood light hanging down over the dinnette. When Brad is less amerous, he replaces it witha reading spotlight... Ooh, I do love the mahogany and the total retro look.
