Back Home - a little soggy!

Made it back home - a little soggy! We had to depart a tad earlier than we expected too Monday morn early early early. We had popped two t's running to the water heater and the repairs were still not sufficent to keep the drips away. We want to apologize to those around us for any noise that we might of made that awoke you that day. We had a great time and for next years white elephant an Excella-Matic Atomic 5000 instant drip discombobulator and water line sealing wingydingy flange flooper is in the works. LOL Paul & Linda

Had a great time, and now I wait...

I really enjoyed meeting you folks at the Picacho Peak rally, and was in awe at the food, the bonfire, and the white elephant gift extravaganza. Seriously, you took this event to a whole new level! I am sitting by the phone now waiting to hear from a Nationwide adjuster about my axle, and at the rate it's going, I may still be here next year for the 2014 rally. Waiting. By the phone....

Have a safe drive home, everyone, and thanks for the great first ever rally for me!

Anne with the falconstream up yonder

We are home now , too...the whole 45.9 miles to Tucson from Picacho.

Last night around the fire we still have 14 rigs represented...of the 38 rigs that attended (we had a few cancellations and some didn't make it for various reasons...but we hope to see you next year!). And we hope those of you who couldn't get here can next year...that would be swell.

We had a riot, made a lot of new 4CU friends, saw a bunch of old 4CU friends. Even gained some new 4CU members (yea!)... What a great way to ring in the New Year. Thanks for the pics above, Chris...you pretty much covered everything. I'll try to get some more uploaded soon, too.

We want to sincerely thank everyone for attending, we had our new turnout yet!

We finally made it home after an eventful afternoon traveling, we were involved in a minor crash on the way home but are both fine we had to be towed from just south of the Phoenix area to our house, the Navigator was not drive able, and is now at the body shop.

We hope everyone makes it home safe and sound!!

I would like to thank everyone at the rally that made "the spartan guy" down the way feel welcomed. I had a great time meeting all of you and don't be surprised if I show up in the neighborhood again. You people are great and I had a wonderful time. Thanks Jeff

Thanks a million!!

Thanks to all who played a part in organizing this fantastic event. Bob and I had a great time, despite the cold weather which no one could control. Everyone is so warm and welcoming, you can just relax and have a great time. Truly looking forward to the next one, are talking about trying to make the March get together. Don't know yet. We will be in the Arizona area for about another six to eight weeks, but also plan a trip to Dallas to see one of our children. When can we sign up for the balloon festival in Albequerque? We do not want to miss the next one.
Again, thanks to all who made us feel so welcome, and we truly had a great time.

Love

Bob and Pat

L&S..OMG! Thank goodness you are both ok!
The I 10 was a little crazy in spots. But so must have been the drivers :O. When we were headed north, the brake lights started, then we saw some police activity. Then we saw a car upside down in the side ditch! And another in the median.

After leaving the park, we stopped at Discount Tire in Casa Grande to check the trailer tires. We needed a little air in them, but while we were there, a 34' AS pulled in alongside us. They lost the middle tire AND wheel of the driver side axel! We suggested Oasis south or Dillons to the east. ....***If you are reading this, we wish you well and hope you made it safely to your destination! ***.

Back near home, we pulled away from our storage facility and got a message re: back tire pressure low on TV...no , we didn't check the truck tires earlier..duh. At home, In the driveway, unpacking, I heard sssssssssssssss. A nail! Back to Discount Tire! The TV took one for the AS!

Minor inconveniences.

Thank you all for a memorable weekend.

And thank you Chris for the photojournalism! Really capturing the essence of the holiday!

Here's a link to some pictures...

New Years Rally Pics

I wasn't sure if this was a "What happens in Picacho, stays in Picacho" situation, so please let me know if you see any problems or don't want a particular picture posted and I'll remove it.

Thx,
Chris
P.S. - I'm already working on next year's kazoo playlist.
Chris, thanks a million for the photos! We were so busy, we forgot to take photos. You definitely capture the fun! It was great to meet you and look forward to seeing you again!

Keep working on that kazoo concerto!

Hey Bonnie, I am glad you made it home before the flat!

Our accident occurred where the rollover was going on, there were 3 separate crashes going on when we hit the truck in front of us. A driver panicked and just stopped in the freeway, the truck in front o us hit the brakes hard, and we couldn't get stopped, we were very close to being rear ended by a big truck, thankfully he got it stopped just inches from the Airstream. It could have been much worse.

It was good to see you guys, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Well, from Picacho we made it part-way to our next stop at Death Valley - spending last night in Kingman.

WE absolutely had a blast at the 4CU NYE Rally! Our thanks to all those who organized what was a very successful rally for all.

So glad to hear Louis and Sergio came out of the crash unscathed & without injury - the TV will be back on the road in no time.

Cheers to all...

A & M (JAKI, too!)

WHEW, Louis and Sergio!!! Too, too CLOSE!!! Glad you are both okay. THANK YOU and all who helped in putting together another GREAT Rally! There's never any place we'd rather be for New Year's than with all of you.
Very low key and relaxed, as we like it. It'll be hard to follow you with Jammer Jam!

We had a great time as always. It was great meeting new friends and seeing many of our old friends.
So sorry to hear of your accident Louis & Sergio, but we thank God you are both OK.
Thank you Chris for all the photos, we will put them in our New Years 2013 album.
We are now at Catalina SP getting ready for our grandson's wedding on Saturday.
