    And a Happy New Year back to you.

    Steve did the Greetings Card project this year to thank everyone who made a donation to PUP in the last two years.

    That was really nice when I got mine. Thanks to all who made it happen.

    I get enough exercise just pushing my luck.

    I got a card too from PUP, and was most surprised to see it arrive.

    I've already PM'd my Thanks to Steve. I have to say though, I really AM very impressed with the things that Steve and Carl (and some others too) provide for us folks here at the Portal! Now I think I can publicly say an additional "Thank You" to our Campground Hosts! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_happycamper.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Happy Camper"> <hr> I was additionally surprised to see a card from a Private Camp Ground that we've visited 2 times in the '08 season.

    Within the envelope, they also included a little Calender that you can stick on the dashboard of your TV with the CG Logo, address and phone number. Now I thought that was really a nice thing to add! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Approve">

    Here's a Pic.

    <img src="http://inlinethumb38.webshots.com/7717/2040694910100500874S425x425Q85.jpg" border=0>

    Steve,
    PM me back on this one. Either take this as a suggestion to make an offering like this from the Portal, or tell me what I need to do to go forward on making this offer to the Portal Members myself.

    I can easily see the PUP logo on the top of such a calender. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_cowboy.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Cowboy Camper"> And I'd like to see if I can offer something back to the Portal.

    Same here Steve, I didn't post it up here because I didn't know if only people who had purchased PUP goods received one or something. But thank you, not necessary but made my day for sure!

    I may have missed a few members, sorry. Most likely those who mailed in a donation because I lost some of my records on my old lap top.

    And I thought I was the only one...<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Sad">

    They were a great thought and a great picture too. Till I recieved that one, my favorite card was one that had a cartoon of the reindeer on top of the roof of a taxidermy shop waiting for santa.
    Rudolph looks over to the other reindeer and says "I gotta bad feeling about this place..."

    Thanks again,

    Chris

    I think that would be a nice thing to do. So here you go...<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Wink"><hr>

    Of course, Steve really does know what he's doing on a computer. So the actual card we got really looks a lot better than my Scan of it. The image is of his own old camper. Inside of card says:
    <center><font face='Script MT Bold'><font size=5>"Merry Christmas
    and a
    Happy New Year.

    Happy Camping in 2009!

    Yup, it's the KOA on the Brandywine in West Chester PA. They should use that in their brochure.
