Hey to anyone that I told about the TCT Rally in Milford, I had the dates wrong. It is the LAST weekend in September, which means that the Saturday open house is on September 29.
........boy I wish I was still at Algonac, sitting around a fire with everyone

Pictures - Algonac Glassic Egg Scramble

Ok here is a link to a flickr "collection" Collection: Glassic Egg Scramble - Algonac 2012

Inside the collection will be "sets" these are like sub folders. I'm adding individual photos to the first set Campers when done this will be 26 FG campers with their campers (one at a time this will take a little bit).

I'll be adding other sets for the potluck, activities etc. pretty quick but possibly won't be done till Tue.

You can email the link above to the collection, or a link to a a set using the "Share" button that displays toward the right side when viewing a set.

From in a set you can click on individual pictures (or view as a slide show).

When viewing a picture the "Share" button above the picture will let you "Grab a link" to that picture for posting or email.

If you want to download the picture use the "Actions" Button, this provides a list of choices.
Choose "View all sizes" to bring up choices to download the picture in different sizes.
Pick "Original" and the download link will then change to "download the original size of this picture".

The download in original size should be suitable for printing as a decent photo. If you want to download for emailing to friends and family download a smaller size.

Ok here is a link to a flickr "collection" Collection: Glassic Egg Scramble - Algonac 2012

Oops! Double post, bad internet, bad.

If people PM me the names of their dogs I'll add those names to the titles of the pictures. I'm usually better at dog names than people but forgot to write them down and don't want to put the wrong names in.

I should also add one can view the pictures in the order they are posted here http://www.flickr.com/photos/drccac/ this is just a "stream" view of all the photos Cheryl or I upload. As time goes by the rally pictures will get pushed off the first page at this link. Collections and Sets are permenant links.

beautiful work with the photo stuff roger, thanks so much for that work.

i have yet to even look at my pictures, let alone load them into the laptop.

ok heres a great story for you. my wife has a b.a. in human resources, , my degree is in psychology, so even though we camp fish and hunt and everyone at works thinks i am only one gene removed from sasquatch,,,lol we have a little on the ball anyway.

my son has a pretty serious learning disability and at 32 still lives with us.

now the point of this story,,,lol, last night he showed his mom that her cell phone is a wifi access for her laptop,,,lol we could have set her laptop up on our awning and done a webcast of our dinner and campfire,,,
doh!

sometimes we just ain't as smart as we thunk we are.

Wow, what an event. i believe the count was 26 trailers,,though i could be wrong,,my head began to swim a bit with the heady scent of all that fiberglass.....

I personaly want to thank every one that attended, this event was a huge success in my opinion and that was due 100% to the people that attended, it was a blessing to have camped with you all that i will not soon forget.

for those that could not make it,,, well, you missed a short but wonderfull gathering. weather was about as perfect as you could ask for. our group was clustered nicely in one area of the campgrounds. and we had a dinner and campfire that i can only assume was the envy of algonac saturday evening. i want to thank our friends from canada, illinois, ohio, florida, indiana, and newfoundland, for joining us and making this a truely special event
a brief discription for those not in attendence.
algonac michigan, (by the way,,,the birthplace of chriscraft boats) is a beautiful little freshwater marine town nestled on the banks of the st.clair river, at the point where it joins lake st clair. north of detroit.
it is one of the great comercial waterways, and large lake and ocean going ships tugs and barges of all discriptions ply her waters 24 hours a day.
the park we stayed in is algonac state park, part of the beautiful state park system here in michigan. also situated in one of the few remaining,,,and a shinning example of, a lake plain prairie. the park is clean open, and overlooks the st. clair river, which is also home to an abundance of fish such as walleye, musky, pike , and sturgeon, to name a few.

so the gathering is now a part of history, and yet, before it was over we began thinking of next year. not so much questioniing will we do it again,,, but where? when? what great adventure will await us? what wonderful discovery will we make? can more of Michigan actually be this wonderful?

oh yeah,,, it can... hang in there the best is yet to come.

Would you consider moving the date to August, so I can go? I have resigned myself to only camping in the summer. I just can't get away for an entire weekend after school starts.

cindy,i will be camping in august for sure. actually most every month. i will post an invite to any that i think others might like to join up with. and perhaps we can get a good sized group together .

see the problem for many, like you also is timing. for you mid summer is great, for others sept. or maybe may or june. this time i sugjested sept, and pow,,, everyone was available.
i think i would love to do a gathering in spring but not sure what sort of responce we would get.
so... i will carefully look for in interesting destination, that will work for a group setting. and we will throw them around for different times of the year. also watching out that we don't end up in the middle of something like cheeseburger in paradise, which while fun,,,would be nearly imposable to get camping sites at that time.
so the short answer i guess,,, if you , or i find a place and date. and announce it, we will see what happens as far as a responce. but i'm up for it.

Scott you are correct that was one of your photos, nice job BTW. I'm off today, slower internet than using wireless at work. Will upload the rest of the camper pictures you copied to my laptop at the end of the day tomorrow.

Already have the shot of every camper and their trailer up. Working on the potluck photos from everyone in between yard work.

Two pages worth as thumbnail album Campers - a set on Flickr

Or as a slide show
Campers

I used your row of FG butts as the cover photo, great shot.

Cindy...are you old enough to retire? If not, maybe you could lie about your age. My wife & I didn't have to lie. I'm an old fart and she's an old bag and we love retirement. Shudder to think what would happen if we had to go back to the classroom.
