Turbs was at a loss for words sometimes (if you can believe that) so he had to bring trash - talking inlaws to back him up. Ms Amy's dad did a fine job of entertaining the masses while Turbs was out scavaging food & drink in 40 degree , 30 mph windy weather wearing a T shirt. And don't forget to ask him about the non-sober, non-FROG non-rally individual that just showed up at Turbs site and the two just took off to town for....whatever, probably another "buck-fiddy" story in the works. Other than didn't miss much.
Pics are always a nice little feature! Youroo!!

Back home!! We had a great time in Amana!! Met a bunch of great folks had a great time in the campground and in town both on Friday and Saturday. The potluck was marvelous. TURBS smoked the pork butt he brought and the one I brought to perfection. The catered dinner Saturday night was as good. See all of you again next year at Goshen and then in Amana!

We made it home about 3PM without incident. We had a wonderful time again in Amana with all the fellow Frogs. Great to see friends we met last year and enjoyed meeting many more new people.

Thanks to Nuisance, Turb, their families and everyone who put this event together. Great to meet Bob and Cindy and special thanks to Forest River for supporting these Rally's!

Had a great time at the Amana Rally. Thanks to Nuisance and Turbs and all their helpers. This was the best rally. Met new friends at the campfires each night. What a super bunch of frogs.

What can a guy say?

Wow! Just, wow! I had no idea what to expect from our first ever rally. Hell, we've never even pulled the Roo that far from the house before. I just hoped that we would meet a few nice people, relax a little and have a little fun. What I didn't expect was a group of friends who welcomed us into their circle like we were long lost family. Before I could even get the jacks down, I had met 3 great people that I only knew as handles on FRF.

The pot luck was awesome! I was pleasantly surprised to find that Turbs' pork butt in no way interfered with the delicious flavor of the Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet and Spicy BBQ sauce. (BTW: whoever made the swedish meatballs, please PM me the recipe!). Unfortunately, my personal butt was unable to cover the checks my mouth wrote during the cornhole tournament, but there is always next year. The catered dinner was fantastic as well, and we all totally fell in love with Amana. It was so great meeting so many wonderful people, and getting to put faces with the names.

But my favorite part was sitting out by the fire talking and laughing with some great people like we had known each other for years. Silhouette Penny, RVChick and RVCHick-dude, The Pinerocks, and last but not least Turbs and your family... You all gave us a memory that I will carry very fondly for a very long time. Till the next time we can get together, thank you guys so much.

Next up... GOSHEN 2016!

Thanks Tim for the kind words!
Tell Mike he's welcome back ANYTIME!

On another note, to those of you who don't know or are unsure please don't yell "SHOT" if I'm in ear range!

I want to start by saying Mike and I have never been to a rally like this. We did not know what to expect but it was a great experience. The people we met were the most welcoming people anyone could ever meet. We had a great time this weekend and expanding are friendships with new people.
We enjoyed all the extras that came with the weekend. We can't wait to do it again. Tk
