General Campfire Discussion / 2017 and beyond
« on: November 09, 2017, 01:01:01 PM »
It has been a great year of camping!! Together, Thingette and myself have been at 9 out of 11 rallies. And 2018 looks to be a busy year also.

Thanks to all our friends and family for making the rallies what they are. This is the most fun I have ever had with people I met on the internet. I like probably many of you have been asked why this group. My answer remains the same. I don't know, but if you went once you would understand. Some of you have become more like family. Most of you i like more than my family. LOL.

I think the person who deserves the most thanks is Joe! Without Joe and the people who support him (you know who you are). Non of this would exist. Hours of time on the site, on the phone making deals with campgrounds, finding wood and on and on.

Congratulations and thanks to all for a great 2017 and looking forward to 2018.   :chief:
