Wendy, you don't understand.  I don't DO a.m. exercise or photographing of same.  ::) I hope to be in bed or just getting up then!  But I sure hope you and Betty have fun at that early hour....

Re wind - at least it's not raining tonight!

Ok, all y'all, we've been here in section 3 site 59 on 2nd street. It's about time that I checked in officially since I want to tell Chris (and Mimi) that if there's going to be a rally somewhere near them in Sept-Oct, that we'll probably be there.

If everyone survives the exercise, doughnuts and wind, might there be a happy hour get-together tomorrow??

I'm interested in a social hour get together.  We are  taking  The Walking  Tour of Gillette from 1-3 but we'll check  back in here to see  where and when such an event may  happen.

     Saw Betty yesterday and was reminded to check in.  Lot 5  street 5, when the TRAM makes the left turn in lot 5, we keep hoping that it does not clip the front of the coach.  Hope to see all at a social.

We would like to be at the social too, but we have a Beaver club social at 5:30, and its our day to bring goodies. They usually last about 45 min, so if there was something after that....??

Ok  so Randy was just by our coach and "we" decided there would be an RVForum Social  Hour at 4:30 at Jerry and Ardra's coach.  Now we have not yet asked them but they have an  end spot so lots of room for us to park, to bring chairs and beverages and tall tales.

They are in Boxelder Park  in section 2, row E, 7th Street.  The side of  their coach parallels Boxelder street.
Blue  Monaco.   So 4:30 ok?  This is Thursday.

Betty,

Wish we could join you! It's a little far to make it by 4:30!
But we get to see Barb and Frank tomorrow.
You guys have a great time.

As promised photos to prove, Wendy and Betty attended the 7 am  exercise class.  We did well.  Instructor said if it hurt, you needed it.  Boy did we get a work out.  But we did also participate in the  morning goodies served right after the 45 minute exercise session.

We plan to repeat the  session on Friday morning.

The RVForum group of attendees who got the message were able to join Jerry and Ardra's place for a social get together.  Typical RVForum gatherings  usually  get to black water discussions before the end of the session. HOWEVER Jerry  started this session by hiring a holding tank cleaning company to clean his tanks during  our time together!  What a laugh we had.  Do you recall we had not asked Jerry if we could  visit his place?

We got the pleasure of  meeting Stan and Becky (aka parttymers) = part  timers.  They fit right in and had similar stories of starting out with smallish RV's and  moving up.  They will be up early in am doing a volunteer stint  on the Security Gate into the  new coaches.

After Stan and Becky ran off to  have another Happy Hour with their Beaver  Group, Jerry gave us TMI with how the holding tanks levels are set, determined. Let's just say we all had another laugh.  Good job group.

Same time same place tomorrow.  Maybe  we can get Beth and Kerry to join us if they get Sprint to work or an internet connection!

Howdy to all at the reunion.  We (Dave and Sharon) are located in Lot 14, 6th street, site 1.  We've been roaming around here and there since last Sunday.  First time at an FMCA rally for us so it has been interesting.

We did have a good happy hour in spite of it's inauspicious start!  Jerry had made the appointment to have the tanks cleaned out earlier in the day so I'm sorry you had to put up with the noise but that's the way it goes.  As Betty said, Jerry upheld the standard by reporting on how the tank cleaning went.

Next happy hour tomorrow (Friday) at 4:30 and at our place again - Lot 2, 7th St., at the Boxelder St. end.

Oh My gosh,

I am so sorry.  It was pouring  I mean pouring rain.  I was awake most of night watching the lightening and listening to it. I was lazy. I was sore from yesterday.  How many excuses can I give?  I did skip the donut.  How  bout if I make it up to you some way.

You missed a good workout, different from yesterday. And it wasn't even sprinkling when I walked over. Of course, I have no mud to navigate :)   And I did have a donut I earned it !

Not sure how this will affect happy hour today, but it doesn't sound good.  Our weather radio is going crazy and said this may have hail with resulting damage.  Animals should be put inside.  We're in central Campbell County and this storm appears to be heading straight for Gillette.  Time to batten down the hatches.

That's an ugly radar blotch! we're going to see if it snowed up on Beartooth in the morning - it flurried here in Island Park and YNP yesterday.

Keep your heads down! We'd rather see Jerry's black tank being cleaned on "America's Funniest Videos" than the rest of you on the "Evening News".

Maybe Indio is a good choice for us.

Amen to that Kim!  Right now (3:10 p.m.) it's pretty still outside except for treetops across the way, but we have a few hours to go.  Uh oh.  I just heard thunder.

Well dang.  There is a mud slick in front of our rig.  Several cars  trying to drive down this narrow little street have gotten stuck in mud, slid all over.  It is fun to watch.  We will NOT be driving our rig forward to get out.  We will be backing out of our spot for sure.  We  saw  two Monaco's being towed out of mud in our section around 1:30 today by a John Deere Tractor.  Never a dull moment. It's only 59 so I'm not coming out to happy hour. I'm stocked up on food so it will  be an ok evening.  Bought  lots of  trinkets at vendors today.

We had five for happy hour  - Kerry and Beth, Stan, Jerry and Ardra.  Becky was recovering from getting up with the birdies to be at her security post at what must have been an ungodly hour.  It was a small group which gave us a good chance to get better acquainted.  Wonder what happened to that weather alert?  Oh well, at least it was dry and not windy, although cool.

After 2 mornings of exercise class, I just couldn't move my butt. I did manage to haul it out of the chair for birthday cake, tho.

See, I missed out on the free band ... a fitting punishment. I'm going to their Livimg with Arthritis seminar at 11 if the Cam-Plex doesn't float away. Wish they could send this to the fire on Wolf Creek Pass.
