Of course, we all know that the first thing Frank did when he opened the taser box was to throw out the page with the cautionary warnings.
After all of that, I'm surprised the taser didn't end up burning in the trashcan alongside a host of Harbor Freight tools!

Hilarious story, definitely a laugh out loud moment.

But, I'm not sure if the best part of the story is that there is apparently a store named "Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop."


That's just flat-out awesome!

It was to celebrate the start of the rally.

Paul's the man

There hasn't been much posted from the rally because Paul has kept everyone so busy. It's been one great party! Happy hour is every hour. Most have left for home with the hard core still resting for the trip tomorrow.
Paul really outdid it for a rally, it's going to be hard to match this next year(but we'll try).
Big thanks from everyone to Paul!!!

... we had a smooth tow home and even made it to a 4:00 wedding. I posted to my blog with some photos of our weekend and some comments about our experience. Doug is very right, in that Paul out did himself and it WILL be very hard to top this one. I am willing to try.

Yep, great rally all around. I've posted quite a few more pictures at the same link above (from Friday and Saturday's adventures). Enjoy! I'll have a couple more to post tomorrow night.

One Awesome Event

I'm home now too. Paul, you knocked this one out of the ball park. Major kudos to you for a great time. I'll get pics posted on Picasa in a day or two and will post the link.

And all you lucky people still at the rally, ROCK ON!!!

Vac Rally

Hi Gang,

Mary kim here. We made it home after concern with the Travelall and Paul is New Orleans bound. I just wanted to say Thanks to all who joined the rally Wow! Pictures of Rob in the creek with a net are from the Duck Race for those looking closely. Many new folks came to this rally I am not sure of numbers as far as first timers but it was a pleasure all around.

Just wanted to offer my personal thanks too to Paul. Virginia and I enjoyed ourselves and know the effort in the behind the scenes. Paul is great at balancing Family, work and play. Glad you all could be a part of it.

Hope to see you all down the road,

Mary kim,

Looking forward to putting a face with some of these Forum members.

Here are a few of the trailers my wife and I have restored:

Hello , Levon, I think we met at Verona Saturday, I live close by and just came for the day....If I have the right person....I have a question, you painted the hitch and underside of your AS and told me the color, but I have forgotten, I think it was purchased at Lowe's....could you remind me the official color when you buy it ?

More rally photos

You can find them on Picasa Web Albums here. Feel free to download any or all you wish. There is a link on the left that lets you download the entire album to your PC if you want.

RJ, I'm so glad you got some of the Duck Race Happy Hour. Of all the times to forget my Nikon. Rob was hilarious out there with the net.

BTW Frank, that party at your place Friday night was killer awesome. What a great impromptu social event for everyone. Thanks!

Thanks to everyone sharing their photos. Open house was great. I wish I could have gotten to each trailer, but time wouldn't allow it. Maybe next year . . .
