Fred and Daisy were two of the first RV Forum members we met, at the 1995 1985 forum rally in Plymouth, CA. Daisy recalled some memories of their visit to Chris' home town in South Wales, UK.

Oh, just wait till you get old, Tom, and can no longer count right.  ;)   Maybe I mentally counted in Terry and Betty Brewer or the Ruwards or the Fosters or Lou Schneider or Bob and Joyce Zambanini or you and Chris?  Those were memory rich days.  :D

If we had have known about this mini rally, We could have also gone.

Agreed.  Cindy and I had a very nice visit with Fred and Daisy in their Sierra Vista home shortly before they decided to move back to Maine.  They're very special people!

Most on the Forum might not know that the 6 of us were part of the Forum New England group back on the mid 90s. The New England group had a number of rallies. North Stonington, CT;  Dorset, VT;  Essex Jct, VT at the FMCA New England rally; and the last was at Westfield, CT at the Highland games. Mid nineties, I guess we're getting old!

Great to see the "old folks" of the forum. Fred & Daisy were the first RVForum members that Laurie and I met back in 1994 when we made our first RV trip to the maritimes. Brings back lots of memories.

Fred and Daisy were the second RV forum members we met, when Lucy introduced us at our first Qz in 2011. Pleasant memories.

Chet was another member of the "New England" group back in the 90s.
