Sorry, with over 1700 posts, I can't remember what exactly was said nor who said it. Nor when they said it. I just have a vague recollection that somebody said something at some time in the past. No sleight intended.

No slight taken Joe. I guess that means I am not THE one in charge of BS. What am I VP of since you are our statistician? I must have misplaced my badge. Perhaps you can post the offices of the LPPI since I have lost track long ago. I know we all hold a position. This is one organization where everyone rules and no one is ruled over.

I assume those would be your two or three posts.
Hey! Are you and Grace going to be able to make it this fall?

We can make you two the center of discussion at least once a day!
I think we should take a newbie and make them center of the discussion for a week. Then pick a new one the following week!

Who was it that predicted that this thread would hit 2000 replies? (Was that the VP of BS?) I predict that that prediction will soon come true. At the rate it's going the 2000+ level may only be a few days or weeks away.
Joe,
Out of all the VP's you, by far, outshine all of the others!
You sure are thorough! Thanks!
BTW, I should be getting the new truck, delivered to my house, tomorrow morning! YIPPEEE!
We should be the voted the best rally for last year AND this year! No one else has the spirit like we do!

No.
You are the newly appointed VP of Backing Up Trailers!
You used to be the VP in charge of Being Julie McCoy. You were our cruise director, like Julie McCoy was on The Love Boat!

Yes.
We are all in charge of everyone else. No one is in charge of themselves. We cannot make new by-laws without everyone disagreeing with everyone else. WOW! That sounds like Congress now. The only difference is, we get more done!
I will post the titles soon.
Just remember, in the LPPI we are ALL officers! So that means we ALL get to wear the pink beanies WITH small propellers. Since I am the founder, I wear the beanie with the big propeller!

Boy, with all that talking he is doing Lou's big propeller must be spinning and spinning and spinning. He must be constantly standing in his own airstream.

Hey! I got a new LPPI by-law!
Section 40, Sub-Section 38, Paragraph 227 of the LPPI By-Laws and Songbook:
If you are not a newbie and you mention that you feel lucky that you are not a newbie then you will become the topic of discussion the very next week!

HEHEHEHEHE!

Pictures? We have pictures!

I was going through the digital camera and found these from the rally!

A gathering of the minds!

All crazy people raise your hand! Renee, please point these people out.


OK everyone line up! Start with the oldest first, please.


It is all about Lou!


Aw! Poor Larry cannot find anyone to play with.


Look how impressive Lou looks, Harold!


Lysa and Lou show the initiates how to perform the LPPI Officers Salute!


An aerial view of the LPPI Mobile Command Center!


The official LPPI watchdog!


LPPI Rooftop Security Camera!


Man! Lou sure gets better looking with each rally!


Na Na Na Na Na Na Batwing!


What happened to John's hand????


What do you all think? You cannot blame me for any embarassing photos of you. Candie took most of them!

Congrats on the new Truck! Blue always goes good with an Airstream. And Carol will tell you that Blue tows better, too!

It must be a big year for the Pattersons - a new Mobile Command Center and a new Family Trusckster!

It is a BRAND NEW Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Oh my! Another forums faux paux! A 1/2 ton pick-up pulling an Airstream 25 feet long!
It has the 5.3L gas engine with FlexFuel and Automatic Fuel Management with "Coil Over Spark Plug Technology". This means that it can run on E85 and it will shut down 4 cylinders and it has an individual coil for each of the 8 spark plugs.
It has the auto-locking rear differential.
HD towing package, (rated at 7,000 lbs max.)
It has A/C, PL, PW (including the extended cab windows), PM, OnStar, AM/FM CD six speaker, cruise, trans temp, tire pressure, oil life monitoring.
It is dark blue so it should tow better than a red truck, (ask Carol she knows).
I am ordering a fiberglass cap for it on Saturday. I have already ordered a new WD hitch for it as the old one has a welded shank and will not work on the truck.
Tube steps and a bug sheild with chromy-go-fast mirror covers are after all that!
