December is doable but I'll be in southern Florida in January and February. Having the restaurant cook sounds like it would be a nice treat.

Hi Doug,

The dates will probably make all the difference.  We would prefer not to go if the temps are below freezing where we live.  The earlier the better.

Capt. Scott,

 

Hey how are you doing.  I'll keep that in mind.

Later,

Doug B)

I'm going to be there.  So far I have one definite from you atchafalaya_man and 2-3 sounds like fun.  But to me that's not a definite.

 

I have changed a few things above in the orginal post.  I'm going to have to ask for people to make a decision in order to get a head count and see if we can get a discount on tickets.  Some of the shows I have picked out sell out of tickets early because they are in high demand (good show) so we have to order early.

Hi Doug

 I have a post on rv.net in the truck camper section and I mentioned the rally your trying to set up.  seems some people on  that forum are interested in it, but don't know anything about it. I was thinking you might want to post a little somthing about it over there.

  I thought I was uniqe that i have a 5th wheel and a tc, but since being on these forums I found out I'm not the only one. 

I had two truck camper AND a fifth wheeler at the same time.  I was marketing the second TC at the time. 

 

Every trip we took, I asked #1 if she wanted to go in the 5ver and every time she chose to take the TC.  I eventually sold it after owning it for well over a year.  (I too had used it to live in at work away from home much of the time I owned it.  I also have stayed in the TC just fine for the same purpose.)

 the trick of getting screen shots and remembering how I did it.

 

This is from Vista:

 

Windows/Start/All Programs/Accessories / Snipping tool . (It's a built-in feature of windows now.)   

 

It greys your screen.  

Drag a box around your screen;

"Save As" your jpeg picture file name.  

 

In NATCOA,  use "More Reply Options" in lower right corner of your post. 

 

Then, Lower left corner for attaching a file, select:

"Browse"  (Search for your jpeg picture file name)

Select:

"Attach this file" 

 

And then post.

Although I've been TCing since 1970, this will only be Marcia and my second camper rally. We're looking forward to it and hope we have enough winter clothes ;)

Looking forward to meeting you.

 

the Average temps are 65 -70 degrees.  I know their not the temps your use to in Florida, but hopefully the time spent with fellow TC'ers will make up for it.

 

You Guys now make it 8 Rigs Signed up for the Midwest T/C Christmas Party!

 

See you soon.
