SideCar - 6/28/2013 5:46 PM

I'm hoping to see some great pics from Butch and you other folks who had real cameras out. In looking at a few pics I took with my phone, I realize that you must all be vampires since only the rigs showed up in the pictures....

 You're right SideCar, you can't see the people. Surprised

 We're sure glad folks had a good time.  The local community was a big help in the success of the rally.  Here's a big thanks to the folks that contributed not only their time but also their $$$ to our group:

 Butch & Nancy gave not only their time/photo equipment, but also donated the photo paper.

 Barbara & Larry not only assisted with registration, but also donated tea/lemonade/plates/cups, etc.

 Jim & Kathy spent a weekend scouting the off-pavement ride in advance.

Jim & Brenda donated lots of time/postage sourcing door prizes from various suppliers.

 Jim taking taking lots & lots of action shots.

 And Jena mixing up her pulled pork sauce. Cool 

 

 I will try to work with Jim to see if I can get his action pics uploaded.  I didn't take many rally pics since Jim had that covered, but here are a few:

 Wednesday evening cool enough to enjoy the Stone Country Drive-In -- but with the long days, it was sure a late night for me:


 I suspect this may have been the 1st Drive-In Theater for some of our younger folks -- but a couple of 'em admitted to falling asleep at least once during the show Laughing:

Gary, I ran out of time before I made it over to your rig.

J.R. & Avanell with Lil'Bit were ready and waiting for the Superman - Man of Steel:

Blanchard Springs Caverns is identified as one of the crown jewels of the U.S. Forest Service, as many of us will agree.  Wow, what a beautiful place.  This was my 3rd trip, and I'm more amazed upon each tour:

The best surprise of the rally was the group ride to Blanchard Springs.  Once we walked into the shade canopy, the cool 58* water gushing out out the Caverns created natural a/c in the hollow.  We didn't want to venture back into the sun for the return ride:

I have some more pics from our travels to/from the rally -- I will post them in a separate post in the On the Road With... section of the forum.

Is there an 8"X40" glossy copy of that group photo available? Maybe even just the high resolution digital file I could print myself.

DR, I'll ask to Jim to email us an original large-file of a group photo. I know he was disappointed in the final photo, but we knew the light was at the wrong angle when we set-up for the pic.

Thanks Lee, it doesn't have to be great but I would like a picture of the group. Considering the group and the logistics I think the picture looks great.

The SS Heavy has reached its home port in Brazoria Tx.

We left home on Father's day, made our way to Arkansas for the rally, then to Kansas to enjoy highs of 105, Colorado for the 4th and camping later on around Durango (the ground has lost some elevation since the last time I camped out), New Mexico was next with visits to the historical squares in Santa Fe and Albuquerque and parts of old Rt 66 and finished up in the Texas Hill country to run thru the twisted sisters (w/trailer) and then home.

Traveled 4500+ miles. After the rally saw only one sidecar rig in Kansas. No mech problems at all.....

The rally was the highlight of the trip -- Thanks to all who put it on and all who attended - When and where is the next national rally?????
