    That's amazing! The package said that they would last for 15 hours. Glad the kids liked them. Shelmily brought some to the NEPA Rally in June, so thanks goes to him as well for the great idea!

    You are very welcome! We actually found them by accident on a random shelf at Walmart. My girls have had them last as long as 3 days!

    Yes thanks Pat! They did love the balloons but sadly all of ours have met their end - except for the new ones tucked away for another trip.

    I've already posted a picture of mine with a short write up on the Tri-Lynx Face Book page. They responded to me and said thanks for posting. Less work for you to do, but thanks anyway.

    We just got back from 2 1/2 weeks of the most beautiful weather a campground could offer. SCORE!!

    Wife and I sleep on the front bed over the trailer tongue, and I sleep on the outer edge. As you know, when backed in, that end is the close end to the road that runs through the camp sites. I had the truck parked over to the other side of the site to provide privacy over there, so I was really close to the road while sleeping. While lying in bed one morning, just waking up and was about to crawl out of bed, I heard a conversation going on at the edge of my campsite. A guy talking to his wife (presumably) commenting on my Portal sign that I got at last years rally. I have it hanging off that end of the Pup whenever we are camping. It was very quick but went something like, "See?, theres that guy with Portal sign I told you about." She mumbled something back to him, that I couldn't make out, and then they walked away. I jumped out of bed to go talk to them, but by the time I got outside, there were numerous people walking around and I couldn't figure who did the talking. I would've liked to have seen who that was, and if it was someone from on here. I think if it was a regular member from here, they would've came back later in the day to talk to me and see who I was. Oh well. Cool eh?

    We got home Sunday from one of the best trips ever!! Despite full on rain for 3 days straight and a solid fire ban for the entire trip, we had a great family vacation; my parents on their maiden voyage with their new-to-them TT and my sisters family. We scavenged for a couple relatives of a fellow portal member and had a wonderful time.
    This will definitely be a yearly trip!!

    The fire threat level has been downgraded 1 level to extreme... But the ban has been lifted! Even the signs were taken down last night during the rain in the park. So everyone is happy now! Haha
