Great time

Just returned from the rally.Met a lot of forum members for the first time.It's great to be able to put a face to a lot of the online names.
Attendance was approx. 100 trailers.The campground owners and hosts Leonard & Michael are fantastic people and the facility was very nice.Great experience.

Rvtv

There was a film crew there from an RV show(I think it was RVTV) and they were shooting some footage of the rally.I will have to keep an eye open to find out when/if it will be on the show.

Just got back from our long long trip. Thanks to Michael and Leonard for hosting us at such a beautiful campground and Canadian Atlantic for all their hard work in putting on this rally. Thank you Bob T. for getting us all excited to attend. It was a party for sure! Met some really "colorful" new friends. Hope someday to return to PEI. It is just a perfect place to spend time.

Thanks to Pam and Chuck for leading us on this amazing vacation.

Thumbs up I saw this scene yesterday

This was the scene yesterday as the NEU Caravan exited PEI via the bridge. I white knuckled it the whole way, in fact I think my fingerprints are embedded in the steering wheel. There are a couple of sections on the bridge where you are required to climb and descend fairly steeply. Didn't like that part.....

Thank you Canadian Atlantic Unit

Thanks to the Canadian Atlantic Unit, Bob and Harriett Thompson, Joan Drake, Michael, and everyone who worked so hard to make this a wonderful experience.

Great location and facilities. We had a huge tent that was most impressive and held us all. The food was perfect and the entertainment phenomenal. We didn't dare miss a thing.

LOVED PEI and the people. We only met cheerful and chatty Islanders that couldn't do enough to help us out. We also enjoyed every meal out, our visits to the many local businesses, including one very good bakery in North Rustico.

I personally was so impressed with all our new friend from the CAU...David, Diane, Melissa and Brian to name only a few. We met Michael who shared his special Airstream history and numbers tracking with us. All wonderful people.

Thank you so much for everything.... And, remember, we have courtesy parking for when you trek down to central Massachusetts.

So this is where they all were!

I commented in another thread that I drove back and forth from Connecticut to Campobello Island, Canada, (off the easternmost tip of Maine...border station in Lubec, ME) and didn't see a single Airstream during the trip. I was astonished. But as I just learned after skimming through this thread it's because you were all enjoying yourselves in PEI! Sounds like a good time, I hope everyone had fun.
