It was  an exceptionally beautiful fall day.   Loretta baked an apple pie from scratch.  Ken and Sheila hiked Park  Avenue both directions and a couple of other arch hikes. A small group of hearty  hikers  hiked Double O, a challenging  rock crawl.  A group of Jeepers ran Hells Revenge supervised by  Barb and Betty as they were the only 2 females on the trip. It was fantastic.

AWARDS:  Casper the Smiling Friendly Ghost was given to Margaret who was happy and complimentary all day long on the  Double O  hike.  It was her third day in a row of  hiking!

The Great Pumpkin was awarded to  Frank and Barb W for caring.  And for being the nicest  people Henry knows! All the people in the group agree. 

The  Cheshire Cat was awarded to Gary B as he  really really got his  $  worth  out of his new lift kit.  He did all the  obstacles on Hells Revenge with a  big GRIN on his face.  he  is really IN TO  this off road thing!

We also have a contest going on.  There is  a jar of Corn Candy and folks were to put their name and guesstimate of candy on a paper.  Announcements of winner will be made on Halloween night.   Bring  a roll of toilet paper!

Steve has a very fancy  Bar B que which he brought to  the dinner tonight!

Forgot to mention in last post  about  Gary P and his new 35 inch tires and lift kit.  He is ready for big boy trails!   Andrea seems happy too.

If you're interested in driving up Long Canyon/Pucker Pass, visiting Dead Horse State Park, and then returning down Long Canyon Jerry and I will meet you at the car line-up area in front of the office at 10:00 tomorrow.  Bring the usual lunch, water, chairs, and FRS radio/CB.  It will take about an hour in each direction plus the time we spend at Dead Horse State Park.  We'll take anyone who needs a ride.

You just never know what Betty will come up with.  ;D   Some of my favorite memories of forum rallies revolve around "she wants us to do WHAT??"  and we did, and we had loads of fun doing those crazy WHAT?? things, too.  ;D

Another great fall day in Moab full of activities. 

We had a great dinner tonight and some amazing food that everyone pitched in and brought.

As for tomorrow, there will be two 4WD trails tomorrow, one going to Long Canyon/Pucker Pass  departing at 10:00 am at the campground exit.

There will also be a more technical 4WD trail departing @ 9:00 am with a driver's meeting just prior.

We hate to say goodbye to some of our rally members that are departing early but we understand.  It was great to meet Len and Brenda and wish them safe travels as they depart tomorrow.

We also hate to see team LoLa leave as they too must depart the rally early due to prior commitments.

We look forward to seeing you guys in Texas next spring. 

Travel safe.

Mike.

Does this mean scarier than some of the others?  After all, it is Halloween!  :)

Safe travels to you early departees.  We enjoyed meeting Len and Brenda and hope we'll see you again at another rally.  It was fun seeing Team Lola again and enjoyed Loretta's "made from scratch" apple pie.  Don't get many of those these days because I don't make them!  The whole dinner was yummy.

Margi,
It will be a team thing and involves a timer.  Scotch tape  may help.  We will look for volunteer recruits for staring roles at Happy Halloween Hour  10/31.  My goal is  memory making laughter!

So sorry Len and Brenda , Larry and Loretta will miss out.  But we will give them a rain check and see them at near  future rallies!

Great looking pictures there Henry, but is that a front tire in the air in that first picutre of Terry????

That appears to be higher than mine was.

OPPPPPS .  I made a mistake  on  awards yesterday.  Frank and Barb are  the nicest people HENRY  knows.

I corrected  it in the post and  want to thank  Henry for reading  RVForum posts very closely!   So if you are now  reading this closely please bring toilet paper and scotch tape to  Happy Halloween Hour today.

No way Terry's tire is off the ground more than yours was. Mike you almost ate it. Ha! And Betty I did forget about the toilet paper.

Happy Halloween  hour.  10/31/14  It was a day we all got younger.  I believe laughter  makes the  endorphines  flow and when it does we get younger.  Tonight's festivities were a hoot of  stomach aching laughter.  But first the daily awards.

Bill R got Great Pumpkin because he had all the right tools to  fix things for Frank and Gary at the end of the trail today.

 Gary P won Cheshire Cat by default.  First it was going to go all of  the 6 guys who went up a  ridiculous trail today filled with boulders  and loose rock.  But it was a unanimous decision ( by those  6) that the smartest one of the group was Gary who  decided the trail was not for his  stick shift and non locker Jeep.   Lots of discussion about Strike Ravine which has been renamed  by the group as Strike Out Ravine. Somehow Gary disappeared before I coud get his  photo for  our records.  I will catch  him tomorrow.


And finally  once again I snag the  Casper the  Ghost award for my  smiles on the trail  and making all feel included.

What a great Happy Halloween Hour tonight.  We had a great time and everyone seemed to get in a good laugh or two.

Tomorrow's trail ride will be an exploration experience departing @ 9:30 am at the camground exit.

We hope to see everyone there for a fun filled day with the Framily.

Thanks Mike, check that tire out on your jeep, if I am not mistaken it's off the ground.

And yes Margi, Here it is.  The RVForum TP report.

I'm certain that after today's activity  many were not liking their RV friendly toilet paper.  Seems double or triple ply might have been better building material for  our mummy contest.  First thing we  needed was 3 male model  volunteers .  Frank, Don and Mike joined up right away (well sort of right away)  Then  we requested 2 designer women for  each male model.  Now we have Team Don with Anita and Judy.  Team Frank with Sheila and Margaret and Team Mike with Ardra and Carol.  3 judges were selected to be timers and Final Judges! On my count  the toilet paper began to fly.

 The designing women were to dress their Male Model like a mummy in a prescribed amount of time.  The laughter began right away as strategies  varied from beginning with  wrapping legs or heads first.  Oh the comments.  Frank told his team it was not  "Pin the tail on the donkey!"  Ardra's  used a lotta tape to ensure their team did not  touch  anything private! Don's team crippled him by making him into a sarcophagus.  He looked good but he  could not walk.

So I'll share a  bunch  of  before during and after photos so you may get he flavor  of this wonderful Halloween activity.  I've not laughed so hard in a long time!  And in  later post you will find out the  decision of the judges.

Our  Hostess and Witch Diva Crystal  started the festivities!  She is so cute!

And nearing the finish line of time, teams are in a frenzy and  the  audience is in stitches.  Single  ply just does not hold up.  Models have been named Scotty, Charmin and Angel.  Don't  you wish you could have joined us at a Fall rally in Moab? 
So more  photos.....

A HUGE thank you to  all the RVForum Framily  for participating, laughing and enjoying our Halloween activities .  We made some memories  tonight didn't we?

Team Frank ( aka Scotty) with  designing women Sheila and Margaret were deemed winners by the judges. But there was some controversy as Mike's size required  more TP and one of the judges was  married to a designer... see there are  politics everywhere.  All deserved awards but I only got one prize in town today.  Enjoy your mug  Frank!  The girls got  popcorn.

Next set  of  photos will be the  individual  Halloween costumes and their  photos!  After I have a break tonight!

One of the contests held over the past two day was the guess how many corn candies are in the Jar.

 22 people  voted.  The high  vote  was 2022 the low vote was 77.  The average vote was 328  the mean vote was 223.  The winning vote was May Ann who voted 175 with  178 actual candies.  She wins  all the  jar of  candy and a neat little Moab sticker decal for her car or wall  or scrapbook or what ever!  Great job everyone.

Sorry it was not  $1000.00

So  our hostess Chrystal brought costumes for  all and  provided the back drop for our Halloween  Photos.  I  did notice that many of our new comers to this  RVForum rally  missed out  on their opportunity for "Fame."

We promise to  get you next time!  You are on  my list!

In no particular order here are  the costumes of  2014.  I want you to know  Terry Brewer  dressed Ken Kuch  for the photo event and Corrine, you were missed so  Sheila stood in for you!  Dee sorry you've been sick but maybe I've posted enough photos for you to feel like you were here. Andrea where have you been?   Jared we missed you.  I wanted to see you in pig tails!
Larry and Loretta we heard you did not need to leave so  early. SO SAD.  Len and Brenda aren't you sorry you left this craziness early?  You shoulda seen how  much candy was offered at Happy Hour!  Even Jelly beans.  Thanks Don and Mary aAnn!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Ahhhhhh,
The final  day of our RVforum rally.  Happy Hour was a Bust as a group was delayed  by a landslide and road closure and the  rest of us were blown away by the weather.  Seriously the wind blew  so hard through the pavilion that the chips flew out of their  bowls. 
Awards were all given to Mike and Chrystal for their hospitality in leading this RVForum Rally.  They have been all smiles as have the rest of us.  It was  a most  impressive rally and  we thank them for  their organization, new ideas and most of all for just  being  them!

If the wind is blowing in a front, it just may  snow tonight and for sure  we will hit rain on the  road tomorrow.  BUT we did have near perfect weather for the rally.

Hope to see  all of you again at another  RVForum Rally.  May our flags wave in Friendship and Communication.
