To all who attended, thanks for a wonderful time. Rita and I so much enjoyed meeting the people we have read about on the forum. I learned a lot and got quite a few ideas for my next project. Special thanks to Bob and Debbie for all the effort they put into this gathering. We made it home safe and sound, although it was a short trip, no drama is still appreciated. I would also like to thank Nick, Pam and family for the sacrifices and service to our country. Be safe everyone.

Great meeting you Sam!!

Richard and I got home without any problems. The 360 will have its alternator checked next week.
Thank you Bob for all your work in setting this all up. Penn Woods was a great venue. The people were so nice to all of us.
We so enjoyed meeting all of you and seeing your motorhomes. Can not wait to do it again. Safe travels
Nancy

We made it home without any issues, got back around 6pm. Made a few stops along the way, including one bar where the Argosy drew a bit of attention (in a good way). Thank you everyone who helped put this weekend together! It was a blast and Christina and I are looking forward to next year. We did hit a bit of heavier snow on the way back but it was all good

When we got home, the dogs were exhausted. They barely moved from their spot on the couch.

Home Sweet Home

Stopped in Niagara Falls NY to fuel up and have some dinner with John and Ann at a Mexican eatery before crossing the border.

Thanks Bob, Debbie and everyone that came for a great event. A huge shout out to Bob for diagnosing my blown 50 amp master fuse for the coach electrics just before we left, as I had forgotten it was where it was. It was nice to have lights when unloading.

Also to the PA club that runs Pennwood...WOW what a classy venue and wonderful hosts for our event. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

No snow on the way home but ran out of dry socks today.

To all those who are still on the road and those who will be in the future, our prayers for a safe journey home.

Many cheers
Tony, Gabby Shannen and Fiona

Wow!

Home at last after a ten hour trouble free ride out of the snow/rain and into the sun. The 370 loved the cool weather, and ran like a top for the 500 plus miles back to the coast. Fortunately we got in by dusk since the tail lights signed off somewhere along the way.

What a fantastic group of folks you all are. It was great to finally put some faces to the names. This was my first experience attending an Airstream event, and I will look forward to doing it again.

Special thanks….

Nick "Vycan", you may have been the only one still awake to greet us when we rolled in at almost midnight. Thanks for helping unload the car and backing us into our spot. And sincere thanks for your service to the country. You are an impressive man.

Bob, Thanks for all of the effort that you put into making this happen. Your energy and enthusiasm is overwhelming. Great job!! I'll be haunting you for information and advice as I try to sort out the Airstreams in my life.

Martin, I can't believe that we live minutes apart and had to travel 500 miles to finally meet.

It was a pleasure to meet all of you!
Please give me a heads up if you're ever heading toward Cape Cod.

Best regards to all!!

Charly.

Can't agree more Tony....great work by everyone involved.

With a few stops for re-fuelling (both Bella and ourselves) it took 12 hours to punch through the 550 miles but home safe and sound - but unloading can wait for the morning!

Classic Motor home get together

Just got home now (3:15am Eastern Time), and I have to wake up for work just 4 hours from now, but it was SO worth it!

What a fantastic weekend!

I wish we could have made it.
With the trip to Alaska a few weeks off, I used the time for preparing the 310 for 6 weeks on the road. I hope someone has a chance to set one of these up next year. Glad to see that most of you made the trip unscathed.

Team,

Just got home. Knocked out 750 miles yesterday, and 350 today. Had loads of fun. all are safe and sound.

Overall it was so awesome to meet everyone, and put faces and names with internet handles during the event. Each and everyone of you had such a profound impact on my own projects over the past few years, and if it had not been for the forum, I would not have nearly the amount of enjoyment with the motorhome. I am horrible with names, and by next year I will have forgotten everyone's, but if anyone would like my cell for networking/troubleshooting ideas, feel free to PM me.

Mayco, I loved the copper accents in your coach, and your LED lighting solutions. Good to see you again this year. Only other coach that made it from last year.

Isuzusweet, the cabinetry in your coach and attention to detail was incredible, and the rear lounger was a new feature I had not seen.

Bethany, I did not get the chance to see your coach, hopefully I will next time.

Shepard, your breakfast nook change was awesome!

Mehes, your coach was in such pristine condition it was as if I had traveled back in time to see one come in off of the factory line.

Bobmiller, it was amazing to see your coach's use with five people on board, and the work you have put into it. Thanks for coordinating the event.

Streamquest, I have never seen a 370 before and it was absolutely amazing to see the rarest airstream motorhome in person. Let me know if you decide to do the 7.3L International Harvester Diesel swap with that 460.

Nawwin, Always great to see a diesel pusher, and I loved the tile job you guys did to yours

Sonia, the restoration of your coach was incredible, and modernized it quite a bit. I made sure not to leave fingerprints on your ceiling!

Mprokap87, So incredibly jealous of the steal you got on your Argosy. That is trully a gem!

Martin, it was amazing to see your rebuilt argosy in person after following the rebuild thread for the last year, seeing it in person fulfilled one of my forum bucketlist requirements.

JM2, It was awesome to see a stock argosy, and hear about your adventures with it supporting the scout troop.

Tap, Hope to see your coach next year, and it was great to chat about your plans and projects while you were there. Look forward to receiving the pics you took.

bkahler, It was so good to meet and talk to you. There are so many threads of yours I would reference as a starting point for my own frustrations.

Thanks for sharing the weekend.

Ahh...home at last, kind of an emotional let down...I wanted to be the last one out of Penn Wood so that I could see everyone off. After Mike and Lynn had left it was finally our turn...I had previously moved our 2014 diesel cruze over to the road and after hooking up the tow dolly to the 325 the cruze would not start!!!! LMAO!!! Some sort of fuel problem, so the five of us pushed it up the ramps onto the dolly and off we went. It is now in the shop at home and I will start hunting around with my power probe, (John and Tony would like that) and let you know what I find. I hope everyone had a great time and I'm sure we all passed the "Leak Test". We had the best and the worst weather...all in one weekend. My front furnace stopped working on Friday night...another item for the never ending list. It was great to meet all of you and I look forward to another Get Together as time permits for all of us.
