We're up to 10 rigs since Jack rolled in this morning with his 17.5 Bigfoot. Interestingly our 10 rigs come from 7 brands with no brand having more than two. Hands down the most interesting and unusual is the Play-Pac of Nick and Megan. A neat, rare, '70s trailer that none of the rest of us had seen before. The Hudson is beautiful and we've been taking advantage of it with canoes, kayaks, and a pontoon boat trip through a nearby lock, down to the confluence of the Champlain and Erie canals. Thanks Nancy.
Meanwhile John and Nancy have been feeding us like royalty. You two rock.

More pics. First is rally members Saturday morning before Jack came in. Second is food prep and dining tents. Third is dinner Friday night. Fourth is ice cream after dinner Friday night (that's my brother John with the red bandanna), fifth is breakfast Saturday morning.











Much thanks to my brother John and sister-in-law Nancy for all their hard work. They very much enjoyed the group and had a blast right along with everyone else. Friends of theirs from Mammoth Lake CA (Jerry & Nancy) were there and also helped a lot. Jerry & Nancy own Mammoth Mountain RV Park out there!

It was great getting together with everyone. Gail and I had a great time, and Buckley has new canine buddies...

Yes, John and Nancy were the real heroes of the rally, but thanks too to Frank for getting it started. A great weekend.

Gordon, I know you're a retired librarian, but where do you come up with this stuff? Very cool.

It was great meeting you two. Enjoy the day!

It's from the Facebook Casita Owners group. Evidently Casita has a good business exporting Casitas to Japan under the brand T-Globe.

I've long wondered if the T-Globes are included in the Casita number on the front frame. I suspect so. Anyway, thanks for the pic Gordon. Good one.

Walt's ice cream treat was from Snowman in Troy: The Snowman Ice Cream - Homemade Ice Cream Troy Lansingburgh Rensselaer County New York 12180 - Only 8 Low Calorie Frozen Yogurt - 531 5th Ave, Troy, NY 12182

Highly recommended by Ed & Sue as the best ice cream around. Walt sought them out, tried their product, liked it, and bought three gallons of it to bring back for an ice cream social.

Once we found out where they were located, Gail & I knew we had been there before, just didn't know the name. They're busy all the time.

Well, you arrived late and they arrived early. They came on Friday and due to a death in the family had to leave to make arrangements on Sunday, nice couple though.

Did they stay in the Oliver? Or the camper van?
That's too bad they had a death in the family
Where were they from?

You ordered material from them?!? What kind of material? See one in person? Gee...

How's that pinball machine you & Nick ran out Saturday morning to get? That's why you missed John!

Enjoy that Play 'n pac, nice egg you guys got!

Didn't you guys get a handout of attendees Meghan? I have one at home, but Jim or Walt or Jack or Sue would know.

We ordered Oliver sales material. Just because we were curious and like learning about different campers.
We are working on the playpac now as the trip made the cupboard come lose. A fix we have known needed to be done but now HAS to be done. Plus a few fun extra projects are getting done (hopefully).
The kids ask every day if they can go to the game room and play pinball. Something they never really did with the other arcade machines. They must have my pinball loving blood in them Click image for larger version

They were from New York, that van was set up really nice, mainly for the cat they have at home. The Oliver too was nice, I offered to trade them my Escape, they liked how much wider it seemed (I think it is about one foot difference), but the Oliver is at least that amount longer.

Yes, we have chatted, way back when you first joined FGRV. I was at the Niagara Winefest in 2012 and plan on returning this year.
