Any chance of putting a link to the rally map on the Photo Gallery page?

I thought of putting links in the pin descriptions back to the rally report &/or the prespective photo album. Right now, I'm not up for doing any custom coding to the gallery pages, but I can easily link from each album back to the map.

Might also add it to the Main Menu on the Home page

It's already on the web site and in the forum news, which in turn show up on the main message board index  ;)

Yep, they're there. Day 10, Day 11, and Day 12 are at the very beginning and aren't labeled but all 12 Days plus Lead Singer Betty are there.

Thanks Wendy. I should re-arrange the photos so they show up in order, and I should also add the missing descriptions.

Gary, I believe I now have them all plotted. Looks like first time around must have I failed to hit the save button, and didn't realize they were being deleted. Note that you won't see 2 pins in the same location where two rallies were held; The respective pin shows the two years. I'll get the links added when time permits.

Edit: Gallery menu now has a link to the map.

Tom,

Have you seen Chris in the last week or so?? :)   Or, have you had more than two consecutive hours of sleep in the last week or so??  :)  Just curious!

Tom,

There was another mini rally held in January of '97. Again, before digital days. It was our first trip west and we met Fred & Daisy and Tom & Margi at Justin's RV & Water Park outside Tucson. I think there were a couple other members there as well but I have forgotten who they were. Perhaps Daisy or Margi would remember. From there the three of us headed to Quartzsite via Yuma. It was a great trip. If I find any photos I will send them to you. I know I have some of the coyotes that would come into camp each afternoon for dog biscuits someone was feeding them. Not a good thing.

Daisy & Margi,

I have not forgotten about the video. Will try to get the DVD done this winter and mail to you both.

Bob:

We were there at that mud rally of FMCA at Perry.  ...   

There was a pre-rally of forum members at Highland ??? Campground.  Joel & Camilla were there, Sarah & "Elliot", George & Joanna Jannini and us and I can't remember the others right now, but I know there were several others.  That was the old Compuserve Forum members then, and some of them are no longer around or at least I haven't seen them here.  That was a really long time ago..... ;D

Daisy



That was High Falls Campground, across the interstate from High Falls State Park.  That was pre-popup (1996)
for us - actually the rental trailer was motivation to buy the popup.  Ken and Shellia were also there.  They went with us the Buckners (?) and we saw Ken's first southern cooking experience. He liked it!

Ken Kuch if you're reading this???

When was the pre-FMCA Rally at Essex Juction, VT.  Fred and I remember that was probably the first time we met you.  And Sheila was looking for a good used Blue Bird...... :D

We met either at that one or the one Joel and Camilla hosted at the other end of VT., the name of which escapes me now.  The one Joel hosted was a mini-rally, because Joel and Camille were going to be there and wondered who else might come???  You two, the Dicks, Jannini's and Myers and us were there.  Who else?  Don't remember that year either.

I've got swatches of memories, but no times to go with them.  Is that a sign of old age or what? ??? ::)

Daisy

George & Joanne were there.  George wandering through the campground with his bottle of single malt.  Shelia explaining that the cats needed a new motorhome.

The first quasi forum event we attended was a dinner at the 1994 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania RV show. At the dinner was Gary Lee, Joe Lacy and a member form NJ who I can't remember (Ron P ?).

We were there.  Vague memories of the yet unnamed person being there.  Single guy.  Attended several forum events.

I suspect that Chris likes having Tom huddled over the computer 24/7 - it keeps him out of her hair. Just as long as he remembers  to say "Yes, dear" when SWMBO utters a command makes a request for something.

Thanks Jim, Joel.

Daisy sent a 4-page writeup of her notes of mini rallies and other gatherings. Haven't had a chance to do anything with it yet.

Tom,

I remember that Gordy and Coleen Clark were there.  Gordy was still driving the Overland that Andy Griffith previously used as a dressing room while filming on location.  Seems like there was someone else there, too, but memory fails.  The trip from there to Quartzsite was really a lot of fun. 

As for the video ....  ::)   Too bad our library doesn't have the capability to store something like that.  It was a classic "Fred Thomas pulls the wool over Margi and Pat's eyes" moment.  :D  I wish we had a video of Daisy rolling on the floor laughing at our gullability!

Margi, we actually do, but I've been reluctant to store videos there, partly because of the bandwidth issue. A better (for the forum) option is to upload videos to YouTube, and then the video link can be placed either in a message, or in a forum wrapper. Either of these options will play the video here, but using YouTube's bandwidth. Here's an example of the wrapper (low quality video - it was taken on a cell phone), and below is the same (low quality) video embedded in a forum message:

Oh, dear .... I was joking.  :D  I had no idea something like that was possible.  As you can see, my cutting edge gets duller with each passing year.  ::)

Margi,

Thanks. How could I forget Gordy & Colleen??? :)

The video will take a little time. I have one of three tapes on the hard drive and I don't know if it is the one with "our" trip. I'll try to get to it soon.
