Candi and I are safely home, without incident from the Branson gathering. As expected, we had an amazing time and loved seeing everyone. There have already been some discussions about 2018! Are we there yet?

Got back to MN at 5:30pm.  No damage from the 65 mph rain and hail that smacked the northern part of town.

Had a great time again!!!

Margie and I got home about 3pm.  Doesn't take long to go 300 miles.  So enjoyed seeing everyone and going to all the events.  Thanks again to Mike and John for organizing a truly great gathering.

I am glad you all made it home safely. I did as well.

It was great see all the folks I had met before and new members too!

I hope everyone else makes it home safely too!

We also landed safely. Got in at 2040 hrs. Had to do multiple stops. Car needed to be fed, we needed to be fed, then we needed to empty our tanks. The car was continually emptying its tank. No problems! What a WONDERFUL gathering. John wouldn't take much credit for the smoothness of operation, but I'm sure it was a combined effort to pull of an event such as we experienced. THANKS to both John and Mike. A VERY enjoyable time. The venue, people/friends, food, travel, entertainment, scenery, ALL a first class level. Looking forward to next gathering. M -n- S

Nadine & I got home on the 19th, drove about 8 hours in the rain, no wipers at first but then they started working. I cleaned the car last night, what a job, it was a mess.
We had a great time this year, as usual, it was great seeing everyone again.
