Abe, The entire weekend was just terrific. I look forward to doing it again soon. That is your beauty parked next to mine in that sunset picture... sure look forward to when mine looks so good.
To all that attended and even those that didn't thank you for a great experience for both me and my family.

It was a great time. I only wish I lived closer so I could go to all of them with my trailer!

Frank, I wish I had more time in your trailer so you could point out all the work you've done in more detail. I just re-read your entire blog and it brings back memories.

It was good meeting everyone at the CBR!

Tim,

We all wish you lived closer too! I truly enjoyed chatting with you... and you did a top notch job with the live VAP. I can see why you created the VAP... you're a natural behind the microphone.

Frank and I were on the phone the other day planning your next trip to the CBR... Sacramento, CA to Orlando FL to Upper Marlboro, MD to Sacramento. It's only 6500 miles. ...just think of all the VAP fans you'll meet along the way.

Seriously, think about coming again next year... and bring your family... there should be room for you all to stay with us in the Caravel . If that is too crowded for you... I bet some of the great WDCU folks could dig up some aluminum digs for you guys.

Thanks for making it out this year... I know it wasn't easy for you, but we all appreciated it.

Too funny, Steve drove 15 1/2 hours straight to get home... slept 6 one night, 7 the next (the extra being my oldest) in a tiny caravel. Already he is talking about returning for 2009. Either that is a reflection of how fun the WDCU is or you need to be checked out...

I don't know about that. Sometimes I think the best thing I could do for theVAP is become a silent partner!

Thanks! It was worth it! But next time I want to be in a trailer that has a working shower with a shower curtain!

Cherry Blossom is on the list for next year!

Tim- we can always tow an extra trailer down for you and your family (we promise ours don't smell)- sometimes two trailers come in handy!

It was fun to put so many faces with names and make new friends- we will plan on getting there earlier next year!

Note to self- make twice as many Airstream cookies!

Those were great! But don't worry - no matter how many you make, they would all disappear quickly!

LOL! April, I saw that plate...but never managed to grab one. They looked yummy!

For those of you who missed the CBR, a visit from April with her plate of cookies is the kind of great hospitality you'll find. I've never felt more at home... 900 miles away.

WOW! I belong to a GREAT WBCCI unit . . .

Those cookies were awesome, April. As was everything else about the CBR. It was all the fun I'd only heard about for the last couple of years, and more. And it was cool meeting everyone, seeing faces, going places. Thanks to all who posted pics.

Since the CBR, I've been enjoying the VA coast, moved back to the valley today, and I'm heading to the Shenandoah Valley Unit rally tomorrow then back to Chattanooga Sunday. Here's to seeing everyone again next year, if not before.

You're right Frank. It sucks ~ this waiting a whole year for the next CBR.

Maybe if we all ask real nice, the Rodger's will allow for an additional rally at their farm. It could be the excuse to get together rally...

Tim, DO NOT CHANGE THE SHOW. You do a great job and we all love you. I know you were reluctant to join the WBCCI. And when you did you were not the least bit enthused about having to join a unit, but now, I can see you are happy with your choice. The WDCU really gets what this is all about... camping and having fun. A killer pot luck helps too. We will be expecting you, now that your sleeping arraingments have been taken care of.

Sugurfoot, You are one sweet southern belle. I sure did enjoy meeting you and your beautiful trailer. I have to say you were a great part of this rally, and hope to see you at all the WDCU events in the future.

April, your cookies were great, but offering a trailer up to Tim is even more wonderful...

I think Tim has discovered the ultimate fuel saving way to rally hop scotch all over the country.

With all of these multiple vintage trailer owners offering to provide one of their collections on site, Tim only has to "show" up and do a The VAP show.

Surely Colin Hyde or Rob Baker will have an extra unit (with a working bathroom) they would have at the ready for the Saratoga Springs "Jam" Tim would have to dance for his diner and tape the next VAP or three episodes, but just think of the panel of pros available at the "Jam".

Tim, I think you can put your trailer up on jack stands this summer.

WDCU's approach with two of their annual rallies is somewhat of an anomaly within the wbcci. typically units try not to have a unit rally in the same spot year over year. i know that is the case with my home unit Watchung NJ which is why our West Point rally is every other. the fact that WDCU does with the Cherry Blossom and Outer Banks each year almost puts those event on the same annual plane as the clubs national events like Victorian Days, Mardis Gras, Easter Rally in St Augustine, and the big one in Indiana -- forgetting the name of it and blue beret is not handy.

Geez Frank. I'm still getting over jet lag and you're stirring up more trouble for me!

You guys ??? Last time I checked... you're also a member of this fine group. And we're all happy you are.

Frank is smartly encouraging you to start early in your efforts to convince your wife how you need to make this a family trip next year.
