We have the capability to merge your old account with the new one. I did a few searches using your email address, various letters from the email address, your last name, your first names, the IP address, your city, etc., and came up with no plausible hits for your original username. If I had it I could merge with your current username and all your post history should show up.

If you want to use your original name, I can probably help you with that.

if you use your old time your member since timeline would still be active and it will show how long you've been a member.

All I need is your eMail address, send it to me in a PM and we'll get you hooked up!

Dave was able to borrow a 20" computer monitor at the time a very heavy CRT. We set that up on a box so folks could get a glimpse of what iRV2 was all about. I setup the wiring for the technology and it seemed to working .. OK.

At this event I met Dirk Harrington (Route66) and a few other members however please forgive that I really don't remember any more. Richard Hale (Hitchhiker) was also there at the time.

If we could put the funding together, this is something that I would like to do again. Getting a crew to man the display for the 4 days of the show would be a good thing. There's a bunch of Cooters down there that would really do a good job I'm sure.

I do have the original sticker and do lurk on the Texas Boomers posts/threads...it seems like an active group!

6x5ver -

What a pleasant surprize to read through this thread and see your post! You are one of the "original" four who met at Sea Rim that first year - although I didn't know anyone other than Cathy Jo (from Beaumont) who organized that event! So I'm pleased to meet you!

The Texas Boomers today are a direct result of that first rally all those years ago! And that rally is mentioned in our Welcome Packet given to newbies to this day. It's a part of the Texas Boomers history and iRV2.com history as well.

Sometime after your rally at Sea Rim, Cathy Jo posted online info about the next rally to be held in October 2000 at Guadalupe RV Resort in Kerrville. Four newbies signed up - all of us new to irv2 and looking for a group in Texas to join. We all met at the appointed time and place, but alas no one else was there!

The four of us - Ken and Susan Wilson, Marc and Marsha Budge, Jim and Kitty Gardner and my hubby, Rusty, and I had a wonderful time and decided to host another rally in December (a Christmas rally) to get together again.

I contacted Cathy Jo immediately and she explained that she was returning to work and did not have the time or availability to continue hosting rallies. She gave me her blessing and told me to "run with it"!

The rest is history! We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary this Labor Day at Boerne, Texas with 76+ rigs attending! Obviously, it is a monumetal event for me as "Madame Boomer" and the Texas Boomers has become my heart and life over the past 10 years as we've seen it grow from 4 couples to over 125+ in our "member" list!

You said you've been lurking on the Texas Boomer forums! I invite you to come meet a great group of folks who have continued on in your footsteps! If you still live in Texas...there's definitely a rally or an area campout that surely is within driving distance!!!!

Sandy

www.texasboomers.org - you can read the Texas Boomers history that is handed to all newbies at our rallies - the "originals at Sea Rim" are honored there as founding the group!

I have been around IrV2 since early 2000, when Bill Rowland first started it. I have the original sticker. Still read the mail, stopped RVing due to death of Navigator but still lurk daily. My face name was and is Homer. I particularly remember Driver.
