    Thanks to everyone for showing up! The 2 night beer tasting was a hit as was the Feast of Friends Potluck dinner. Even though it was damp, it never rained till late night and with a hint of Fall Color, I would say it was a succesful Fall Folaige rally weekend!
    Hybrid Hollow emptied out so fast Sunday Morning that I thought you guys left me with the bill. I walked down there and it was empty. Just the cool people on my end of the street were left.
    Stay tuned and I will figure out next years dates soon.

    It was great meeting everyone! I really enjoyed the Craft Beer tasting on Friday night as it was a fun way to kick off the weekend. Winhall Brook was spectacular and we're looking forward to future visits. Thanks to Mercman for making the rally an awesome experience.

    Thanks Chris for another greet weekend in VT. We enjoyed see some of the New England regulars that we are getting to know and meet a couple of new faces also. We are looking forward to next season and hope to see everyone again soon.

    Stefie we would love to goto a rally in MA. The only camping we have done in MA. is at Salisbury State Park and it's a great place for the kids but a shade tree is hard to find.

    THANKS AGAIN CHRIS

    Thanks Chris for another great year. Sorry I missed the beer tasting, I kind of dozed off by the fire for a while.

    I thought I had my winner picked until I got to #4. That was amazing. Thanks.

    Great pictures, mercman. I only took a couple of Hybrid Hollow.

    I was the last to pull out of the hollow.

    Thanks to Chris for organizing a great rally and for taking me kayaking on Gale Meadows Pond.

    Having completed my first year as a Popup Portal member, I can't imagine a better way of meeting new people and exploring new campgrounds. I have been fortunate to have made some good friends, and I will look forward to seeing them frequently in the coming years.

    A special thanks goes to Popupsteve who has made this all possible" [:D]

    Hey, Steph!
    I will definitely come to both. Depending on the date of the July MA rally, I'm hoping that I can combine it with the Geneva State Park Rally.

    Great pictures Chris! I didn't take too many this year. Here are the few I did.

    This was the redneck fix to my broken vent issue on Saturday morning. It worked, and surprisingly lasted the whole way home.

    New vent lid and Maxxair covers will be here tomorrow. Thank goodness the weather is going to be nice this week.

    See, I told you all he was there!

    Awesome time as always, but It goes by way too quickly. I can't wait to see you all again next year!
