Thanks to Steve and Gail and everyone for a great time at the 2015 Rally. We're a little past half way home staying at Hoover Metro Stadium for the night . . . squeezing diagonally into two spaces so we don't have to unhitch. We had a memorable diversion going through Burmingham, but that's another post.

Thanks to everyone for the great time we had and to those who helped organize and run this years rally and a special thanks to Steve and Gail for organizing and running the rally.... Looking forward to next year (and the ECR) to meet back up with our new found friends. If we are lucky, the heat might work in our coach next time....

 

Back in Georgia again after a cold overnight in Illinois.

You watch those video's and you would think all we do is stand around and talk ..... wait ... that is what we do .....

 

Great week, as always. Our 7th rally and finally did some sightseeing this year and went to the salt mine. Hopefully will not take another 7 rally's to get to the Cosmosphere & Space Center.

 

For those that missed this years rally Steve & Gail just keep putting on a better rally year after year. This year is the biggest so far. Each day is packed full. Even if you have attended previous rally's there are still new seminar and things to learn. Great place to learn as well as work on projects. Open your hood and it is amazing how many new best friends will show up to offer opinions, advice and help.

 

Already have next years rally on the calendar as well as the ECR penciled in. Hopefully we will be able to make our first ECR this spring.

Howdy All,

 

I used all the data for this month so couldn't reply till I got to a friends home and am now using his. :D

 

Anyway THANKS to everyone who made this rally possible, had a good time, learned a lot and now have cruise control in the Smart Car, THANKS Brad.

 

When I get someplace where I can burn a lot of data I'll up load my photos and then post a link to them in this thread.

 

I am having fun visiting with friends along the way home, I am now in Mountain home Arkansas but will be driving back up north to Springfield Missouri to have the radiator replaced in my truck, it should be finished by tomorrow, from here the next stop is Russelville Arkansas before moving onto Louisiana, then Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon then finally home to Washington should get home just before Thanksgiving. Hoping everyones trips are safe and enjoyable wherever they may be going.

Depending on how you make your way through CA, we may be able to meet up. I am in northern CA between Hwy 101 and Hwy 5 not far off Hwy 20.

Mr. Cob,

We will be in Texarkana, Tx for 13 days starting tomorrow. If you get anywhere close give a yell.

 

Brad

Howdy Brad,

 

I'll be passing through in about a week or so, on my way to visit a friend who lives in Lake Charles Louisiana, sorry won't have time to stop and visit, I have a schedule to keep as folks have setup mini rallies all along the way home where I'll be visiting. Thanks for the invite. :D

Howdy Chad,

 

After visiting friends in the Hespria area I don't have any more planed visits so I'll most likely just run the slab up I-5 and be headed for home. Where will you be staying and what dates will you be there, I'll be spending a night somewhere in northern California maybe we can hook up for a visit. Let me know and if it works out perhaps we can share a camp fire. :D

Dave,

Remember what happened last time you stopped in SoCal!

Hope this trip is more enjoyable!

Howdy MrSeas,

 

If it weren't for the fact that I have some very good friends who live in California, I would by pass the State all together, WONDERFUL area but most of the people who live there and the politics of the place are NOT compatible with my way of looking at things or my values. I think I could have really enjoyed living in California 50 years ago no way I could handle it now. :(

That's where I live, so I'm usually around. Hit me up when you get close and we'll see what we can work out.

Will do, I'll need a rest stop anyway might as well take advantage of your hospitality, thanks for the offer I'll get in touch as the time gets near to when I'll be heading back home.
