Hello to all fellow participants of the "2010 Fall Colors Caravan".
Just finished getting my NATCOA registration squared away.
Kelli and I enjoyed and feel privilaged meeting so many nice people.
Wish we could have been to the Sauk CG earlier (last ones in at 12:30) to enjoy that beautiful place with y'all more.
Silverline Resort was so much more than we expected for a RV place. The potluck was a blast. Especially the 101 year young lady.
The caravan drive and fall colors viewing were great fun too. Just the weekend we needed. It was too quickly over and now back to the salt mines.
We have a bunch of pictures and will post a few when we get a chance. It's a very busy time.
Hope the sewer hose fixed Redneck's problem.
Again, it was a pleasure getting to know you all and we look forward till next we meet.

Jeff and Kelli

Sewer hose worked great, though I had to remove a few of the little plastic tabs to make it fit in the slinky tube :P

The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

Thanks everyone, for welcoming us back into the fold. We both had a super time and enjoyed every minute of it. What a special potluck dinner... Peter and
Gary, my water bottle tasted like scotch for two days... yum yum./.. what fun.

We spent a night in Kirkland,picked up our Vision 81's in Seattle then spend another night in Salt Creek just west of Port Angeles. A visit overnight in Victoria, then home about two hours ago, loaded with our booty. Border check let us through with about 300 more than our legal limit, no check, welcome back.

My turn to bring some Single Malt for the late evening next time around... can hardly wait.

Great times, Mike and Carole
