We are Missouri bound with zero traffic. What a great rally that was! Shane's family loved it! Thanks Brad and Zell, for putting it all together. Pleasure meeting many of you for the first time, and seeing those we know and have come to love! My pictures are on the digital camera, so I will post them when we get home.

Karen, that was a sweet article! I read it last night in bed. Congrats!

I'm glad you made it home but that's a long drive. It was great seeing you both again and hope to see you before our FOD 2014! Wish y'all were closer to camp with.

Glad you made it home. That was a long wait.

On our way home. Truck is still rolling. The KC crew is behind us in case we have problems. Had to leave the trailer at Catherine's. We will go get her as soon as the truck gets a good checkup.

Had a blast. Brad and Zell you are the hostesses with the mostest. Great to meet new friends.

Nan and Ken

Cow Boy Dave & I just pulled up to our destination, Mountain Lakes Resort in upper Alabama. We'll be here for the next 8 days/night. Arrived safe & sound, but it was a bumpy, long ride, with one VERY scary near-collision. A "road marking" truck (w/NO WARNING signs) slowed everyone in our lane suddenly. Lets just say, we stopped (truck & AS) SO HARD, we could smell our rubber, from the pavement. But it's all good, got The Tumbleweed straightened up enough to go to bed.
It was a GREAT Rally!! We really enjoyed it & I'm happy to now be able to put faces/names to posts on the FOD thread. Brad & Zell really put together lots of great events. Charlie & Holly (I think)- The PC Lounge party on Friday night ROCKED!!
Thanx for having us & we look forward to seeing y'all again in the future. Feel free to look us up on Facebook!

Ok gang I'm trying to post pictures but will have to do it from a PC so give me time and if you took pictures please post them for the group. It was a great time and it was fun to see so many friends join us again this year and meet new ones. Great group! Same time/place next year or do you want to try another campground in Little Rock? Unfortunately not many campgrounds compare to Catherine's Landing.

T Shirt Orders


I am also ordering extra T Shirts for those of you who couldn't come or didn't order them for the rally. They will be the same price ($17) but will round it up to $20 with shipping. Please private message me by Friday with your shirt size and mailing address.

We are home. Can say, The Oklahoma segment on Hwy 412 was a heart stopper. Thumping along on horrible pavement we hit a bridge seam, and Chris heard a tinkling like a piece of metal dropping to the road. Next thing we feel a tremendous jolt. After looking at each other, I pulled over. Got back to the hitch, and saw the ball mount with bars and sway control resting on the safety chains. We had lost the cotter keeper on the main pin that keeps the hitch assembly in the receiver. After a big sigh, we jacked things up reattached trailer to van and were on our way. Nice to know the safety chains are heavy enough to support the Sq Stream
Many thanks to Brad and Zell for an excellent time and it was great to meet so many great rally attendees. We had a super time

Wow, sounds like quite a few harrowing trips home, or to the next destination. Nikki, Shane's sister, had to drive their rig for the first time, because Jared caught the stomach bug the baby had our first day there. Glad everyone made it safely.

Here are a few of my pictures!
