Being my first Gathering, my first night in a tear, my first camping trip in about 10 years, I was pleasently suprised at how welcome everyone made us feel. Had a great time, and enjoyed every minute of it. Hope to see everyone next year.

It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones in person. Its always a pleasure to talk TDs with everyone. Every trailer is as unique and fun as it's owner's are. We had two great pot lucks w/out rain. We have already been discussing ideas for next year. Thanks to Dave & Kathy for organizing another great gathering.

Hope to see everyone at S meets N. in 2 months. We'll have to plan our Fall Teardown in the mean time. More to come...

Dave thank you very much for Lauras boat ride and starting this whole big party! We really appreciate, in the past 4 years we have made great friends and had great times soo until the next time, Happy Camping! See you around the campfire!

:applause: :campfire:


What an amazing time we had. I really enjoyed the hospitality of your site (s).

We are planning our trip next year as we speak.

The bug bites will be a momento of the trip, but the remedy will be more worthwhile. Any suggestions.?

Wow! What a great weekend.. well more like 4-5 days for most of us. Another great sucess, and Kate and I would
like to thank all who made this event so much fun.

Fantastic turnout, no rain and the word has certainly spread! This year we ended up with 53 campers, 28 trailers, and
people from as far as Texas, Tennessee and even Hawaii!

Was great to meet old friends and lots of new ones! No doubt lots of us will see each other at other events we
are planning.

There were certainly a wide variety of trailers this year, and certainly some originals including Bob and Mary's
original 1946 modernistic, Norm and Jeans 'Icebox Refer' and John and Geri's Slumbercoach (just to name a few),
all on their maiden voyages if memory serves me right.

At first I was a bit disappointed the 'vintage theme night' wasn't going to be so popular, but low and behold we had
some campers that went all out and made it a fun time!

This year we also saw the raft of prizes grow with many contributors of some very very nice gifts! A special thanks
to all the generous givers!

Sorry about forgetting to get a group shot this year.. my BAD! No worry... I will be 'photoshopping' a replacement
in short order. PS.. I won't forget next year!

Lots of ideas have been flowing in for next year so be sure to book your sites early for next year! We were a bit
spread out this year, so hopefully we can tighten the group up for next year so Chuck and Barb don't have to
drive to the pot luck :lol:

I'm still processing the 875 photos I took, but will have the album put togehter shortly. For now here are a
few fun shots from the TearUp...
