Mike "ISLAPP" Darnell and Joe "Joe K" Kasunich
Co-Wagonmasters National Rally 2009

Mike Darnell and his wife, Debbie, reside in North Canton, Oh. They started their camping adventures together in 1992 with a purchase of a bunk house trailer. Since then, they have tried other trailers, fifthwheels and a motorhome. Currently they have a 35’ fifthwheel that enjoy using every weekend they can during the summer and on vacations. Mike has been part of since Dec. of 2000 and was a moderator the last several years. He and co-wagonmaster, Joe Kasunich, hosted the 2009 rally at Evergreen RV Park Resort in Dundee, Oh. Mike is retired from the U.S. Navy reserves and has three children, a step son and six grandchildren.

Joe Kasunich, his wife Shelly and three children live in Butler, Pennsylvania. Joe and Shelly started camping soon after getting married in 1990 and purchased their first RV, a class C motorhome in 1999. Since then, the family has traveled the country in several different class A motorhomes and currently owns a Tiffin Allegro Bus. “Listening to the kids talk about the places they been able to go and the people they meet” really makes RV’ing enjoyable. As an engineer and a self proclaimed tinker, Joe enjoys modifying his own rig as well as helping others with technical problems. Joe has been a member of irv2 since 2001 and a community moderator for many years. The Kasunich's regularly camp with the Pond Piggie iRV2 Group and enjoyed serving as co-wagonmaster of the 2009 national rally.

Jim is one of the early members of joining in February 2000 and has been a Moderator for a number of years. The Krylowiczs have hosted several rallies in the Southwest Region over the past number of years and have attended a number of National Rallies where he organized successful raffles to help fund the event. 2010 is their first time as wagonmasters for a National Rally and anticipate the event to be another great one in National Rally history.

He is retired from the US Army and is a proud rider of the Motorcycle Color Guard of America. He is currently restoring a 1928 Model A and hopes to get it on the road soon.
