Great week at ECR


Jim & Wilma

Recommended Posts

We headed home from ECR today, stopping overnight in Valdosta and reflecting on a great week. We reacquainted with old friends and met many new folks in the HDT family. We enjoyed all the seminars and socials and want to send a BIG thanks to Carl and Donna for all their efforts so the rest of us could enjoy a great time!

 

. . . and special thanks to Dan for the stash of onions!

Adding to the list of thank to Carl and Donna and to the mysterious onion arrival. Is there a story behind it? Sad that I had to leave early and had to miss the project day. Was everyone successful in their electronic device? How about a link to the photos taken?

Yes, kudos to Donna and Carl. Carolyn and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and feel we made some great new friends. Our heads are still spinning from information overload. The one question we did answer for ourselves is that we do want to move in this direction. At this point in time who knows but full timing and a HDT is definitely a goal of ours for the future.

 

We would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome and hope to see everyone next years.

Sean and Carolyn, It was good to meet you and make friends. I hope you reserved your spot for next year. We are leaving Thursday and have already done so. I've also learned a lot again this year and will attend as long as we are able. I would imagine that the ECR will grow again next year and the Deer Run RV Resort has been more than accommodating. Also Thank you to Carl , Donna and everyone who gave seminars. They get you informed and thinking. I'd also like to see the ECR rule book that says you are required to gain 10 # from all the good food.....

It was great to see all our friends from last year, and meet our new friends this year!!

 

We had a great time at the ECR including replacing the waterpump on the M-11 and lowering the pin box twice (thanks to David Georgiahybred to point out my mistake) as I put it back in the same position the first time, everyone was a lot of help on this and a work of thanks to all that helped.

 

Carl and Donna, great job again this year, you two are amazing

Just like everyone else Shirley and I want to thank Carl & Donna for making this Rally so educational and Fun! We got in on Thursday and visited the Makers Mark Distillery up in Ky. My brother and his wife came up with us but they left Sunday. We got to enjoy the entire week and with the great chow and liquid refreshment and friendly people it was a GREAT Time for all!! So again Thanks to Carl & Donna for making everything work so well' We made reservations for next year! After having supper at Arbys sat afternoon I did my walk around and saw a flat trailer tire. I jacked the 5er up pulled the tire off, rolled it over to Walmart(200 yards) got it fixed and then put it back on. My problem was I could not figure out how to get the spare tire down. On my other 2 5ers it had a release you just cranked it down. On this one I don't know and my dealer I called today didn't and the factory didn't return my call. I will try again tomorrow. But the silver lining is no damage. I could have blown out at 65 mph but the Lord was looking out for us. We got home yesterday and in one piece. A great trip! Pat

What a good time.

We left today, safely back home now, and parrot the previous thanks for all that helped with the rally and it's events.

Also much thanks to the Deer Run staff who worked so hard to make us at home.

Our first East Coast Rally and not our last. Deer Run is a beautiful park. It was a little cold the first part of the week but Carl assured me he would correct that for next year. We are looking forward to our next one.

Hi Everyone,

 

Had a great time at the rally. Saw some old friends and made some new friends. Meant a lot of good people. I would like to ' Thank' Carl and Donna for all their hard work and how they made everyone feel like family. Got home Wednesday night about 9:30pm. About what time I thought I would get home. The only problem coming home this year was a tire monitor that want to send out false alarms. I must have had a dozen alarms. After last years trip home, when the first alarm went off this year I am saying to myself 'Not Again'. I will start a new post about false alarms on your tire monitor.

 

A good time was had my all,

Al

 

PS; Denver, the truck stayed nice and cool on the way home. Thanks again for your help.

Sandra and I had a great time at the ECR and made reservations for next year as we left. It was great to see old friends and to make new ones. Carl and Donna know how to put on a great rally and the owners of Deer Run were great to us. we are already looking forward to next year. Charlie
