Got the camper packed, had a good supper with 3 other rigs who came early to see the farm. Hope we all sleep good tonight, we will head out in the morning we will arrive at the campground early afternoon. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

We are 90% ready to go. I have to work today but it will be tough, I am in vacation mode! We will be on the road early tomorrow morning unless Michael pushes me out the door tonight!

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.

All photos taken are on my personal FaceBook page and unless someone is a FB member and has befriended me, they can't see them.

So, yesterday and last nights photos I've pasted on my public site.

It was a perfect weekend. Both of us had a great time. If you missed it plan on coming to Doug and Tammies next gathering. They put their heart and soul into this event, and it sure showed.
I have been a tent camper since my Boy Scout days long, long, ago. Now I need to get up off of the cold ground to get a good nights rest, a truck camper seems to be the best choice. I am here to learn as much as I can.

Doug and Tammie,

 

You did an absolutely great job putting on this rally! I don't know how you find the time to take care of all the little details. I really enjoyed the Northstar factory tour, the truck camper "open house" and, WOW, three pot-luck dinners! It don't get no better than that. I met a lot of new friends, and learned more about the various truck campers and trucks.

 

Thanks again for all your effort,

Buzz

Just wanted to say Thank You to all that Helped out at the rally, and Thank you to all that came, and Thank you to all our Sponsors.

I slept all Sunday Afternoon, and then 9 hours Sunday evening.  Exhausted.

 

I will do a final Trip Report might take awhile.  I'm downloading 700 photos to photobucket, but our internet is so slow it took 12 hours to download 100 photos last night in bulk form.  That's  3, 1/2 days to download all photos.    I'll do a trip report or something after those are all downloaded.  Sorry you all have to wait.

 

It was a fantastic Rally.  A total of 42 Rigs signed up for the rally.  A handful had to cancel do to illnesses, surgery, and the sort, but the remaining attendees, had a busy schedule of events planned to do, with the best weather we here in Iowa had to offer.  More later..................

It was Great to meet all of you newbies, and the returnees.  Thanks for coming.

 

FYI-  The MidWest Truck Campers will Continue to put on Events.

 

 A Young Couple heard our request at the Rally, and Stepped Forward to help Tammie and I out.  In the possibility of Tammie, & I not being able to continue like we discussed at the Rally, this Couple Graciously Volunteered, and wants to be a part of the daily tasks of putting on these events.

 

If Tammie and I are able to continue.  Lord Willing.  We are so excited to have another couple help us out, and work together with us to plan more events for all of you.  We will share more information on them with you in the future.

 

So July 13-17, 2015 is still a Go.
