We arrived home in one piece shorty before noon. I think Purrscilla was anxious as when Chris opened the truck's door, she hopped out, trotted up the driveway, the steps and waited for me on the front porch to open the front door so she could get in.

It didn't stop raining until we reached Lisbon.

It was a great time!

Camilla and I made it home safely last night about midnight. We made a few stops along the way and had to drive a little slower because of the wind blowing us around.
Thanks to all of the Rally staff it was very well done and we enjoyed exploring the area around the park. It was so nice to see our old friends and to make new friends. I hope that our paths cross again soon.

Bev and I made it home last night at 9 PM CDT safe and sound. With out a doubt This was one of the best rallies we have ever attended. It was well planned and well managed by Mike & Joe. They had lots of help from wives, family, and friends. The meals, entertainment, and tours were excellent. The campground facilities were A+ as well.

Another important factor is the support of iRV2 members who attend and support the activities. Without the warm, smiling, enthusiastic attendees, all the planning in the world would be in vain.

Also, thanks to all the morning Coffee Hour attendees who helped make that a special early morning activity.

I stayed at the campground until today. It was kinda empty after all you guys left. I had a great time meeting with you all and hope to see you next year.
Thanks everyone for your support.

We were the next to last out of the CG. Bob & Ronnie Kerr (retiredrlk) were staying over until Monday. Wish we coulda stayed too as it was a great day. With the assistance of Joe-K's rope & wire-ties, we were able to get the entry steps tied up & made it home with no more issues about 3:30 PM EDT.

Now the countdown to the 2010 Rally begins!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Diana and I were first timers to any Rally-and we can say for certain we picked a great one to start with!! Thank you all-especially Joe and Mike (et. all) for such a super introduction to the IRV2 family at such a nice venu. It was fun meeting those I've read or communicated with online (and making new friends too). Learned a lot about the area also as the tours were fantastic.

Although we beat the later storms by leaving early (Friday noon) we had some concern for those staying behind. Glad to see nothing severe hit the area.

Thanks again for all your hard work to make this a very memorable first time rally for us!

We left the campground Saturday afternoon and headed toward northern lower Michigan. Stayed overnight in Cabela's RV parking lot in Dundee, MI before getting to Traverse City on Sunday to see grandkids.

We had a great time at the rally. We've attended many regional rallies and owner rallies and this was one of the best. The wagonmasters did a great job. It was obvious that a lot of thought and hard work went into organization and implementation.

Connie and I arrived home at 7:00 PM on Sunday. We stopped at the Mayberry CG in Mt Airy, NC. for the night Saturday and the MH decided it wanted to stay longer. The starter motor would not work, normal jumping of the solenoid did not work so Good Sam ERS arrived to get us going. Guess what I will be replacing.
Again a big thank you to all who worked so hard to make this the best Rally we have attended.
