     Even though we don't start the official rally till tomorrow, we are lucky enough to have 5 rigs here today.   We gathered for happy hour at Gary's coach and Nancy brought hot dogs for dinner.   I'm not good at remembering all the names, so I'll leave that to Gary to post. 

     As the fire was burning down and it was getting cooler, the group started heading back to their respective rigs.  We'll have some photos tomorrow.

Five rigs showed up early, so we got off to a good start. Besides ourselves, Ron & Shirley Marabito, Ernie & Tara White, Mike & Caroline Wassing and Carroll & Anne Anderson.  Had some dogs and potato salad for dinner, followed by Anne's delicious cake, plus a modest campfire (we didn't have much wood).

Here  are a couple photos for starters...

Wish you could be there to meet Nancy, Glen.  She's my cancer warrior hero.  She's been through a lot and handled it better than anyone I know.  Gary, too.

Well, the gang is all here and we kicked off the official rally start with a big social circle at our campsite and a delicious dinner of North Carolina BBQ port, Dave Reavis' famous BBQ-style cole slaw, potato salad, baked chicken and various desserts. Followed by a big campfire.

Rom Marabito took several photos, but I see he didn't get a round to posting any yet. He headed out to the Okeefenokee Swapm early this morning for more photo ops, so maybe later today.

Tonight is sort of a pot luck, with the folks bringing "heavy hors de'ouvres" so we can sort of snack our way through happy hour and beyond, without an actual dinner time.

Tara White will make "Tara's Famous Pizza" on Wednesday and we are all looking forward to it.

Gary,

While all of you are enjoying the weather there, we are getting snow here at Yellowstone. It has now covered the drive in the campground and is supposed to continue most of the week. Hope we can get out of here in two weeks! :) :)

Carroll and Anne:   Sorry we didn't get a chance to say goodbye.  You left while we were playing golf.  Shirley and I really enjoyed meeting you and love your enthusiasm with the geocaching.  Hope to see you again at a rally or anywhere.

Be careful, geocaching is addictive. We're at 1402 finds and have no plans to stop. Come to Quartzsite and you can geocache for days.
