We had a blast a Bullards this year, just like last year, we can't wait for next year. Thanks to everyone for making it such a great 2006 rally
. We were so glad we came early and stayed late this year. We were able to have the time to get out and about and visit more people this year and put more names with faces.
Jamie-we really enjoyed your fish.
Gina-So glad you braved the tent and came. Bring your trailer next year. We need more Burro's.
Gene-I found those lettuce holders in Grants Pass, OR. Used one the rest of our trip and it worked like a dream. Thanks so much.
Donna-Thanks for taking on the lie and going to get Gina, that was so neat.
Barbara-Thanks a million and more!!!
Nancy-I am so sorry I did not get to say good-bye to you and Mike. I totally understand you had to go. Please know our prayers were and are with you. I finally got to a computer and was able to read a few posts to know that things were at least OK.
To everyone else-I must say this is the best site I have found on the net. We have meet the nicest people from here. We so enjoyed everyone's company and feel like we have made some great friends (even if we only get to see you once or twice a year). See all of you and hopefully many more next year.
We just got home on Wed afternoon. When we left Bullards Tuesday morning and traveled here and there through Oregon and California shopping and site seeing. We passed a lot of other fiberglass eggs on the road during our travels and even meet a couple in Oregon that was telling us all about this big "White Egg Rally" on the Oregon coast (as they called it). I asked if they had attended and they told us no they missed it but will be there next year, so we told them all about it. They did not know anything about the forum so we gave them all the info for it also. Can't remember their names but really nice people from Southern California.
We hit Redding, CA Monday the 24th and found it very hot. 112 when we pulled into the campground/RV park from HELL. When we opened the trailer it was 117 inside. I guess you know I got the fans going immediately. Finally got it cooled down a bit and began to unpack. The more we unpacked the more we looked around and knew this was not the spot for us. Lots of shady type creatures, I mean people around. They appeared to be living there in their RV's and trailers and were not impressed with our little egg. Because of the extreme heat we went ahead and stayed that night but I slept with one eye open all night. The next moring we got up at the crack of dawn and packed up and went a found a wonderful place to leave our trailer while we played at the Redding water slides all day.
Word of warning, if anyone ever finds themself in the Redding, CA area and needs a place to camp DO NOT GET FOOLED and stay at the Sacramento River RV Park off I-5 going south. It is a beautiful spot, very shaded with a pool and next to the river but its sure is not the nice camp spot it looks like. We ended up at the Mountain Gate RV park off I-5 about 6 miles out of Redding going north on I-5. Very nice, clean and friendly place with a pool, some shade and the cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen. We found it hard to find a place around Redding. Many very nice RV Parks but they don't allow "small trailers" or tents and we had to have at least one tent for our girls.
Well I have lots of unpacking and restocking the trailer to do so it's time I am off to get our Burro
ready for it's next adventure.
