More photos (finally fixed the "size" problem!):

We set up our trailer "Bubbles" right near the entrance to the campsite, along with the popup, which we'd never used on a campout before. The sun was pretty bright and it was hot when we got set up so we really needed the shade!

Image

OK, this requires some explanation: Last year, Liz and I went to our first Teardrop Gathering in June. It was the Jefferson State Birthday Bash, hosted by Kay and Grant. On the second day we were there, while we were out fishing, Kay "decorated" bubbles with toilet paper and stuck a note on the door that read "welcome Jefferson State Newbies!" :lol:

So, we decided to "welcome" Kay and Grant to Wyoming in a similar manner:

Image

The best part is that they were only about 100 feet away when we did this but they were both sitting in chairs with their backs turned! :R

Although we had one "main" campfire, some folks wanted to set up a second fire so Shawn helpfully delivered some fire right to them!

Image

Saturday Afternoon was hot and sunny, until about 5pm when all of a sudden Mother Nature decided to play a little trick on us just as we were trying to get set up for the evening's pot luck. We were glad to have the pop up to shelter under!

Image

The weather even tried to destroy Jane's umbrella!

Image

But, there's always an end to any storm and this one was signaled by a nice double rainbow over the lake!

Image

After that it was pot luck dinner and then a group photo. One serious...

Image

...and one silly!

Image

Liz and I posed with the banner

Image

And after that came the evening's "entertainment", the lamp glow! A few lamps needed some tinkering, which our "lamp experts" were happy to provide:

Image

The light show itself was pretty impressive!

(My unlit 242B sits in the foreground - unfortunately I wasn't able to get it operating in time for the gathering! :cry: )

And a great time was had by all! :applause:

Got back from Walk in the Winds 2013 and had to turn around and head to Idaho, as my wife lost her dad. I just wanted to add my voice to those who had a great time and will be back next year, and yes I will bring my better half.

I remember when you wanted so badly to go to a gathering and now look. We all want to be there! One of these days Mike and I will make it. I see you even got nature to throw in some rain. Good job Mike and thanks all for the pictures. :applause: :applause:

Question, is there fishing in the lake I saw in the pictures? Boats allowed motors or no?

An album of our trip to Walk the Winds. Not all of our photos came out, so you won't see all of the trailers but hopefully you'll get the feeling of the event. It was great.
