    DW and I had a great time. Met some new Portal members including PopUpSteve. On Sunday night watched the Lunar eclipse with Genie2010 and her mom. Our newest portal member "Pride", our beagle, loved meeting and playing with the other portal dogs. [:D]
    DW took a few pics with her phone. (she's new to taking phone pictures)

    Chris, thanks for another great rally. I don't know how you do it, but the weather was great again this year. We had a great time. The girls are already asking when our next rally is, and if KMH and VTRailrodguy are going to be there. We watched the eclipse with Stormtrooper's wife Jan on Sunday night around the campfire, and couldn't have asked for a better setting. Daveylee, I know my way around up there, just couldn't find that stinkin' store, and as for Stefie's macaroni, I never said it wasn't good, I just didn't know what it was, and I wasn't the only one! [LOL] We can't wait for next year. Hopefully there will not be more drama with the campground as was the last two years.

    Here are a few pictures I took.

    OK, is it my computer that is having a problem ? VTrailroad guy I can see the first pic, the rest are little black Xs. Zendecat I see all the pics, and shelmily ... all the pics are little black Xs.

    Weird, my second two aren't showing now. They were on last night when I posted [?:~{]

    Edit: They appear to be working again.

    This one should be close enough to you. Don't want to sound like a salesman, but this is such a great rally. Mercman really hit the nail on the head with this campground. If you haven't already, throw a second battery on and grab a site in Hybrid Hollow next year.... you'll fit right in. Heck, VTrailroadguy and I were right at home there , and we don't even have hybrids ! [LOL] Shelmily, KMH, VTrailroadguy and myself all had a kid or three there and everyone in the loop was conscious of that. Everyone has a half an eyeball on the kids no matter who's they are.... I was glad to see my wife let her guard down half a notch with our son. Its like regular camping sep'n everyone around you is good people with no obnoxious, loud yahoos. (Axe murderers maybe.. [LOL] ) Potluck is a great time too. We will definitely attend this next year.... hope to see you there !

    I like everything you said, Ductape. I've already told the wife about attending a rally or 2. She likes the idea. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Thanks for changing my wife idea on internet meetups. She is more open. I have to get a 2nd battery or pickup a small Gen .

    Look at a solat set up, cheaper than a generator and quieter and your camping neighbors will thank you too.
