    The whole family had a wonderful time. We had a great dinner and met some even greater people. It was only our second time out with our pup and I can safely say we are hooked. Campground was terrific and the weather was gorgeous. We can't wait to do it again!

    We had a fantastic weekend! My son had a blast playing with the other kids in our loop, and he still asks to see Shelmily's daughters when he wakes up!

    The awesome thing about this park is that it has accommodations for those who would prefer hookups, and those that don't require it. The unfortunate part of that is that sometimes we don't get to see everyone as much as we'd like, as the other loop requires going over the bridge to see them. For those I didn't catch up with, I wish I had been able to!

    Thanks, PopupSteve for making the trek to the rally! It was great catching up with you!

    It's too bad my boy was sick all day Saturday, he would have had a blast playing with yours and Ductape's son. There's always next rally :)

    I would like to thank our wagon master for a job well done as usual. Would also like to thank him for running the chili contest, collecting the votes, tallying the votes, and then telling us he won. :)

    Thanks for hosting the rally. Had a great time and met a lot of nice people. Didn't get to meet everyone being we were down in the south loop but there's always next year. Kids had a great time and it was a beautiful campground. Thanks to popup Steve for hosting the meet and greet. Steve it was a pleasure camping next to you. Thanks for the decals and enjoyed your company at our campfire Friday night. I have a ton of pictures from the potluck I'll post up hopefully tonight. See you guys at the next rally!!!!

    We had a fun time and in the process found a great campground. I will return for sure. Its only 170 miles and a very steep and windy road [cedar st] in Brattleboro to get on to Rt30 from exit 2. I also learned not to listen to the GPS . I came in through exit 1 and union street. That road went vertical road . I am happy the tundra just needed me a little more gas to make it.

    it was great meeting a few on the South Side and the Potluck was real good. I have to do the chili contest next time . The kids complained about leaving . My daughter and Son did not want to leave.

    Thanks to all for a great weekend. This was our first Portal rally, but it won't be the last. I was happy to judge the chili cookoff, but I think next year I'll be entering it! Sorry we didn't meet more people, but we did meet some great folks around us on the South loop.

    Here are two photos from around the rally. The first is a shot from down river, where the two rivers meet. You can see some of the camper of a few of the rally attendees. The second is just a mountain view from the area. You can see that the foliage had only just started changing. But still beautiful.

    Just join the forum and miss this rally. I was winterizing my camper over the weekend. Would prefer camping instead of packing up [:(]

    The weekend weather was good (nice and cool). I will keep checking in for 2016 rally info.

    Thanks everyone for coming out and enjoying a great weekend in VT. As usual, great weather, great food and great people! I couldn't think of a better place to end our camping seaon.
    The only photos I took are of my site and my dog so I can't contribute any.
