Well two things really, the new house closes in two weeks so we are short of time with the choices on everything and the picking out of everything else. And with the new house and not selling the old $$$$$ are a little shorter than normal.

HEY GUYS, I did not turn my computer on during this weekend, but now home. We had a GREAT time meeting everyone we did not know, and seeing everyone else again. Hope to see at least some of you again, before the next M&G.
Thanks Triple E for taking most of the pics...Thanks Misty River for putting up with us...and THANKS Rod for putting this all together for us. You did a great job, no matter what Hollis says!! :laugh:
We went into Pigeon Forge, saw the Titanic musuem and did a triple Zip Line...now, that was fun stuff!! We ATE everytime we turned around and had some nice VA style campfires. Of course getting to know everyone better was the best part of the weekend.
Now there U go again telling on me. But it is hard to say anything that has not already been said. Big Bill Bliko and his wife Kay came all the way from Australia and they are still touring the US. Triple E and Tex did a great job with the pictures. All I can add is for those who did not come, man you missed it. But even though we have completed this one, we are in the planning mode for the next one. I will not say where yet as we are still planning. On a better note,,,,, Maria and I just want to say thanks guys for such a great weekend. We will be send Jimmy a thank you card this coming week. This M&G is the greatest.
And we are back as well! Not back at home, but back with internet connection. We are at a campground south of Birmingham.
We had a BLAST this weekend seeing our last year buddies and all of the new ones. Ken and Linda, your group from VA was a great bunch of folks and all of our forum friends we had not previously met, Butch (Shadow) and Shirley, Steve (Triple E), Trevor (Big Bilko) and Kay, and Alan, are all fantastic foks!
Thank you to our hosts Rod and Lynn, and to the campground host Jimmy. All of the food was delicious and a special thank you to Jimmy and Misty River for feeding us on Saturday night. Along with the food our group prepared, we ate like Kings and Queens the entire time. We left with more food than we brought...how'd THAT happen?
Hollis, we almost missed our turn and came to see you and Maria this afternoon!
Just like last year, we cannot wait for the next one...and to those of you who could not attend this year. you'd better start planning early for next year!
It might be against the law to have so much fun! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
P.S. I tried to post pictures, but as usual they are all too large. Will have to reduce them on Photo Bucket (yes Tex, I remembered, LOL) and try to post when we get home.
All i got to say ,, is THANK YOU for everyone that took the time and travel to make this one ,, i was sweating it for 6 months ,, but it turned out great ,, and not because of me ,, but everyone ,, including the weather ,, everyone did what they wanted to do ,, and we all had a great time ,, but as try2findus said ,, we had more then enough food ,, we thought the first night (thursday) that we might have too little for the bunch coming ,, but boy some of us were wrong ,, but i myself should have known better :blackeye: ,, but it all worked out ,, and agian THANK YOU all for taking the time and doing this thing ,, even the "dorks " ,, :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
Dang Steve, sorry about that, I hope they enjoy it!!!!! But we are all glad that you was able to come and THANKS you so much for taking all the pictures you took. I just know now that all that did not attend and look into the albumat the pictures will now see how much fun this gang has when we get together. We do hope that your wife and family will be able to attend the next outing. So put on the snow plow and get ready for the snow in your area and work off all the food you ate :laugh: we hope to see you next year
Dang Steve, did one of those dogs sniff it out? Just PM us and we will send some more. Just can't thank everyone enough for the great time. What a great group we have here on RVUSA. If you didn't make this one better make it next year. And yes, Rod put on a great event. And thank you Rod for the FREE service call!! :laugh: And the use of your heater. And ditto's on the food. Still here at Misty River. May stay a few more days then head on our next big aventure. Thanks again gang...
Not yet Steve. A tech Rod told us about came by this morning. Trouble shot for about 3 hrs. He finally called dometic and ending up ordering parts. Quite the mystery here. Shirley's not ready to move on yet so thought we would give this fella a shot. If not, I know someone in VA. who can fix it. Going to look for bear tomorrow!!
