    This may have already been done but I thought it would be fun.

    Who was the first Pop Up Portal Member you met and where.

    For us it was BENFRENCH and it was the Mystic Ct rally as least three years ago.

    Guess it was a good impression because two popups and a hybrid (coming soon) we are still loving camping as well as the wonderful people we have met.

    Well, he wasn't the first but most defiantly the most memorable, RustyK. It was a rally at French Creek SP in PA. Rusty came over to introduce himself saying "Hi, I'm Rusty". To which I responded "I've got some WD-40 in my truck that should fix the right up". [LOL] [LOL] [LOL] [LOL] [LOL] [LOL] [LOL]

    I met Cuckoo! Frank & Wendy were camping nearby at KSP and I asked them if they were going to watch the 4th of July Fireworks and sure enough they did with all of us on FMB! [8D]

    First members I met were at last year's first Ohio rally....donnie_08 and kc8pny. They were both already set up when I pulled in to the campground. I'll never forget how nervous I was about the whole experience. Not only was I putting on a rally when I'd never even been to one before. Then meeting these new people whom I'd only met online! But, what a great time with some great people!!

    And what a great time to plug this year's Ohio Rally - Sept 14-16, Area D, Indian Lake SP!!!

    The first Portal member that I met was Bigdad, at a rally in Kentucky. I haven't been the same since.

    The first people we meet at a rally was Jeff and Deb at the Spring Rally at Lake Kissimmee last year. Then Frank and Wendy and after that it is a blur. Can't wait till this spring rally in a couple weeks to see everyone again. [:D]

    KampDixie for us too. We camped right beside them. There may or may not have been a wheelie while setting up..no one has any pictures, so I say it didn't happen! Also, that was the same your Cuckoo left the fire going between KampDixie and my camper...that lighter log burned all night and we couldn't go to bed!

    I wonder what kind of memories we will have next week! We can't wait for the FL Spring Rally to get back together with these great folks!

    That would be Beerlifter at an Oklahoma Rally...and then he promptly tried to kill me off with his version of The Amazing Race! [LOL]
    Can't wait to see what his twisted mind has come up for the rally in April!!

    That would be Gumbias, at the 1st WI rally, 3 years ago at Yukon Trails CG in Lyndon Station. Had a great time and what a feast we had.

    Bruce and Lynne. Bruce was wearing a shirt that said WrongWay (I believe he is also SleepsInLakes, she: NoDuh). He was sitting on Brenda and Tim's (TheWunders and CampTux, I think) picnic table and volunteered "helpful" backing tips (read heckling) when I backing in at Gifford Pinchot.
