    Howdy all!

    I have a large post semi-prepared, for I have a lot to say. But for a few days, I need to possibly be off the grid to get some things done here. We got a closing date of Oct 28 or 31st. That's a good thing.

    My main cable broke on my pup upon arrival on Tue the 15th. I camped at the Hampton Inn. Pup was temporarily repaired by local guys MY camper guy called on to help by Wed morning. It closed with a little persuasion Sunday. It goes back to the shop Wednesday. Yes, I went straight to Lowe's and bought 2x4s to brace the roof.

    On my way home Sunday, my truck radiator blew a lower SEAM, the whole thing. It went to clacking like it was tap dancing, and it got louder and faster VERY fast. I was JUST able to clear a guard rail and get off the road enough to call for help. Good thing because when it went, it BLEW. I really thought I was on fire. Instinct told me to turn it off, hit the flashers, grab purse, get the hell out. Worst 1/4 mile of driving ever. State police came, DOT came, determined no fire. $350 tow bill home, as I was not up to 81 yet. SUPER tow guy, 'dad' type, talked my ear off and let me talk his off to help calm me down.

    Funny thing here is...and I welcome ALL thoughts, there wasn't a drop of oil in the truck. Home mechanic is REALLY mystified as to where the oil went also. Tomorrow she goes on the lift to be inspected closely. Wherever the oil went, it went all at once and fast. The engine heat gauge was happily sitting right where it always sits. The oil pressure gauge started not working about 2 months ago after a big shop job. Anyway, no oil on the underside of the hood, the front of the camper....I mean NOWHERE!!

    So, I have to get a rental, pack, gather the photos for the rally and post them (please don't post in the thread, I'll have to move them), UNpack, close on the house, nurse a 123 lb Rottie, appease the other two mutts, you name, I gotta do it. Calling Geico to see how much they'll pay on the tow.

    Bear with me guys & gals. I appreciate it. And seriously, THANKS for a great rally. :)

    WOW, Just want to say that we had a great time meeting/seeing everyone. Had a blast, ate too much, but got some much needed sleep and adult time that we had been missing. Next year we'll work it out to bring the kids if not sooner for the spring rally. Thanks to everyone for the fantastic food and sharing. I'm stuffing myself on jelly beans as I speak. [LOL].

    I know the Burris family had a great time. Surgery went well, happy I had it after the trip since they told me I was not even allowed to ride in a car for atleast three weeks. I would not have been happy to miss the rally. My mother really enjoyed meeting everyone and I guess if she behaves, well let her come again. [:D]

    A great time had by all in our gang. Great food and fellowship. Weather did not dampen anyone's spirits. Sorry to hear of your troubles on the way home Pam. You did a GREAT JOB! Look forward to the next rally. :)

    Howdy folks!

    The photo thread is now OPEN!!

    Post your rally photos here please!!

    Hope all of you are well!! My pup is finally fixed, the truck needs a new engine, and we closed on our house yesterday. Yay. Neither of us can get 'in the spirit' quite yet, but it's close! [;)]

    Thanks for all the 'thanks', but truly....YOU GUYS, ALL OF YOU, are what make the rallies a success!! OMG!! I couldn't believe how much food was there. Surely a LOT more after I took photos!!

    Y'all set up and took down the food tents, "struggled" to start that first fire (yes, we SAW the torch under that log!!), helped my hurtin self out of every chair offered to me....many many helping hands!! [A] [A]

    I'm ready to do it again!! The sooner we get unpacked at the new place, the sooner I can open the pup and do Camp Driveway. LOL

    I had about 18 shots in the neck and one in the knee since coming home and am feeling pretty good, for me, right now! Of course, it's moving week!! yay not!

    WRITE US IN FOR NEXT YEAR, then your other plans will have to work around the Sewer! [A] [LOL] [8D]
