Hello Everyone,

We made it to Charles Mears State Park at around 1530 yesterday and visited the beach after setting up. Collin had never been to the beach before, and it was a blast to see how much fun he was having (Even if the water was 60 degrees).

We had a great time at the rally, and what helped the most was having a large number of kids there. Sure, Collin had his "Moments", but having the other kids and activities proved the be extra helpful. It was good to meet so many people that I have spoken to online, and good to see Ralph again in person.

I am hoping that we may be able to draw some of you down to Missouri for a rally in the not too distant future, but we know it is a drive for ya'll to make.

Thanks to Dave n Rhonda for setting it up, and rescuing it (Why did it need rescuing?). Kudos to everyone who showed up, especially Rob and Zoe since they drove all the way from Virginia (I had you by 21 miles Rob ).

Great food at the potluck, and I need some huge grinder wheels so I can make that turkey now.

Thanks again for making us welcome.

Steve

Oh...here are a few pics...I've taken about 500 pictures since the rally started, and am too lazy to go through them right now.

Hi All!

We just wanted to chime in and say a huge thanks to everyone for making this rally a wonderful time for all to enjoy. Rhonda and Dave were fabulous hosts and great organizers. Our boys love the shirts, and the models, and the toys from the raffle, and the campground, and the food....let's just say they had a great time. (Except when they got in trouble for making a lake by Brad and Carol's trailers.) Aahhh boys!
Renee, the progressive cocktail party was brilliant! Although I was done-in by about the fifth trailer! Mary Lou, your sun tea was very timely and delicious to boot. Shinim, great food and cute puppies. Tom and Steve, great trailer...I may steal the curtain design! Laura, I swear I saw an eerie face in the window of the caravel when we saw you pass us on US23...be careful. Ralph, great corn! Rob and Zoe, wow great Airstream and cute kids...we have chickens too. Amy and Steve, now I am so curious to find out more about "The Trailer". Ryanh, it was great to meet you. And Everyone else who was so friendly, THANKS! Hope to see everyone in Mackinaw City!

Curtis Write Photos

I already left a post on how much we enjoyed the rally, but I did neglect thanking Rhonda and Dave. Great job.

Here are the photos of a Curtis Write trailer that Diane and I spotted a couple of years ago in Flat Rock. I am going to PM sfuqua that they are posted. I know any kind of documentation of these trailers must be difficult. I think the owner at the time would have entertained offers (it was sitting in the back of a brick distributor), but it was much to big of a project for me at the time- as the inside was gutted.

Shawn.

Just to put the seed in your collective minds.....gas here in Missouri is $3.50 a gallon today. Maybe not a bad place to rally sometime.

Back it down a notch Felix'64, pictures are from a couple of years ago, it might not be available any more. It sure would be cool to have one, our basement doesn't really ever need to be finished.
