    Well we got packed up and rolled out before the rain hit. Rain into it within 15 minutes. Was ugly driving for about an hour but the back roads got us home without problems. Pam and I had a great time. Thanks Chris, Kathleen, Richard, and Mary Jane for all you did to make the weekend so memorable - from 5Star food to activities to take our minds off rain and mud - you guys ROCK!! Richard, hope y'all got out okay. That was some light show and downpour.

    This was indeed a soggy one. Every one helped out in one way or another with the food, the crafts, and the logistics, but Richard and Mary Jane were the go to guys and the real stars of the show. The portable awnings saved the day the way we put them around the covered area. Thanks so much for those. Thanks to all who pitched in on the crafts. The one thing I goofed on was the pictures, especially the group one. I almost needed an underwater camera because of the rain. [:D] I want to thank the portal and Pop Up Steve too for the additional prize give aways. Sorry I didn't get everybody but here was the group stuff I did get.

    God morning everyone, we made thru the entire weekend! Jane and I stayed thru Monday. We watched the Sunday night football game and then slowly packed up things. Seriously thought about heading out late Sunday night. We took a gamble and survived the high winds and heavy rains. Yes the lightning show was something. I kept waking up and going outside to check the camper. Couldn't wait for daylight. All was ok. The weather finally cleared and we drove to thru the park and onto the dam. The winds were ferocious, they toppled over the porta -potties at the look out site on top of the dam. The ride home was excellent. I was able to show May Jane the areas I was responsible for when I worked the area for the V, communications company. Jane saw a Texas sized tumble weed that rolled across the road and right to a donkey at the fence line. The donkey started munching the tumble weed. [LOL]. Now for the THANKS to everyone... Chris & Cathleen...nice job WagonMasters...to everyone else that helped pulled it together....so many thanks. Pam , Nicole , Wyatt, & Mary Jane...filled the buckets and the goody bags. Robin, Barbara a pleasure to meet you. Carmen, Diana, Faith & Grace glad to see you. Bigronw1955 & Pam thanks for the being there. Hugh & Sherri so nice to meet you. Please accept our thank you...and a big welcome to the new Texas Puppers. Congratulations to Bart & Julie , welcome SAM.. Alex & family, Indy ( Katie & Matt), Jeffnsa& family Txbum & Mary Jane.

    jeffnsa, thanks it was kinda tense there for a while....the thing that amazed me was that the awning did not fall down. the pup shook a lot here and there. I would go out and make sure the wheel chocks were holding. Didn't want to roll into the woods [LOL]......that was one wicked mnife tool set you won....what else you win?

    Glad we got home ahead of the rain - Richard, that sounds like a rough night. Glad your awning held up - we've had terrible luck with awnings. At Garner State Park, the first time we ever set up the awning on our first Coleman pop-up, a big storm blew in and high winds destroyed the awning. We slept through it all, but when we woke up we couldn't open the door because the awning was mangled and collapsed in front of the door. That was the death of that awning. Then on a beautiful day at Martin Dies Jr State Park, wind gusts off the lake took out our second awning and flipped it up over the roof (putting a hole in the roof). Eeek. Back in March, the same thing happened to us at the Smoky Mountains, but thankfully it didn't put a hole in our new roof!

    We are very selective about using our awning these days ... [LOL]
