That was the 2001 Lake Erie Boomers campout!
The Lake Erie Boomers name got changed around the next year--now the Pond Piggies.

Very interesting. We have the old sticker and the new sticker on our rig. However the old one is a replacement that I got from someone since the original old sticker went away with an old rig. I kind of liked the visual history of displaying both stickers. I think our first rally was the first national rally in Myrtle Beach. It seems like a long time ago and we have made some wonderful friends here. Thanks Bill and thanks Bob for joining on and keeping things going!
Oh my gosh, now that Al is retired, he's gotten ahead of me with the number of posts.

We were some of the original members but I changed email addresses a few years ago and couldn't get my membership to stay the same (my computer skills at it's best) so had to re-register. We have the original sticker as well.
We attended the very first Texa Boomer Rally at Sea Rim State Park in April 2001 (or maybe 2000)with only 4 families attending. That was before the current Texas Boomers organized and became so active. I don't think any of the original 4 families are active with the current group but I may be wrong.

Gee, this was interesting. After reading these testimonials I can honestly say I can't remember how I "stumbled" upon irv2. All I know is that it has become a valuable tool to us and our coach. I am always telling folks about all the great info you can get from these very smart people on the forum. I will be fortunate to meet many of them at GNR this year.

well now. this thread started while I was on my summer trip. Thus I missed it. I just saw it today for the first time.
Like Hitchhiker, I was on the Ford Diesel forum on night back in January 2000 when someone (I want to say it was "Great White" but may be mistaken)came on and announced that he found a new RV site. Richard and I jumped over and signed up that night. Been enjoying this site since. Hard to believe that was over 8 years ago.
As far as old stickers. Last summer I got a request while in a campground for an iRV2 sticker. I knew I had a packet of them somewhere so I started searching. I finally found the packet in a drawer in my trailer. But they were the old stickers. Couldn't give one of those out so I told the how to get them online.

I know that it has been over a year since I went hunting for another place to call home. The place I had been going to wasn't working out ,and i might have been a little off the wall when I asked someone??, Who owned this forum and site. I'm quite sure they thought I was a loony! I was wanting to find a home that wasn't..just after your money and a spammer all the time. I was also tired of being put down because I didn't have the 40 footer diesel pusher that was bought thru there group. I am being nice with not being a name breaker. Because of this site, I have been able to find two other sites I am proud to be members of as well. We still have our "old Unit" and am proud of it, and here..No One has put us down!! That means All of us here on the Vintage site! We are grateful!! I for one thank all of you for this site! We have tried to make that thread a useful one. Will continue to try at it and like the rest make mistakes along the way.
I don't know how many members we actually have but in 8 years this has become a really great site!! Looking for many more,Dan

My 25 years of RV history is not necessarily part of irv2 history but I have to say that, since joining this great forum, I have learned more about our travel lifestyle and recreational vehicles than in all the years that I was not a member. Just reading all the posts is a learning experience and asking a question or making a comment is when the fun really begins.
