Thank you Linda for another wonderful Beavers Bend outing!

It was nice seeing old friends and meeting new ones! For those of you we didn't get to meet, I'm sure our paths will cross again.

Take care,
Tom & Linda

We had a wonderful time, it was our first get together and everyone made us feel right at home. People shared good food and friendship at the pot luck, building tips and ideas.... I have already been on Amazon and got the cure to one of my problems coming! I look forward to seeing everyone again. Dave & Joann. (Coyote)

A great camping weekend !!! What a way to start the camping season. Super great weather, all though a little rain on the way down and on the way home. Food was awesome and I'll have dominos in the camper next time to get a 2nd game going. Hope everyone got home dry and happy! Julie & Kenny

I'm glad everyone had a good time. We sure wanted to make it, but had to stay closer to home. Hopefully we can meet in the future.

Louisa and I had a great time at the camp out. Louisa was the high winner and low winner in the game of Chicken-foot. The food Saturday night was excellent I was so stuff that I could hardly sleep that night. I am sure glad that we were able to get things ready and leave before the storm came on Sunday morning. I guess they got hit fairly hard at the Camp ground.

I will be picking up my new (to me) 1985 13' Casita trailer on Thursday morning. Louisa and I stop by on our way home to get a good look at it. It seems to be in fairly good shape for such an old trailer. I think Louise and I will like it fairly well.

Thanks for everybody for the great campout that we had. I have already got my reservations and four 2015.
Are we having FUN yet?

I had a great time even with the little sister rescue operation, she is very fun to hang out with! Sorry I missed the group photo and didn't have a chance to cook for the pot luck. I was so surprised when I woke up and the park was completely empty except for my sister and I and MC Toyer. We made coffee and Mary made breakfast while I got us packed up and we left around noon when it was just starting to sprinkle. we never hit any rain of any substance at all luckily and were quite the pair driving home :lol:

We got home last night after a brutal drive on I-35/I-135/I-70. 667 miles, and most of it I was fighting either a head- or a crosswind with gusts up to 60mph! Not fun!

But we had a great time! It's always great meeting a new set of Teardrop and Tiny Trailer owners and this was no exception!

I will try to go through the photos this week and hope to have them up by the weekend or early next week at the latest.

Thanks again to the folks who organized and made this happen!
