Great first night, ridiculously good chicken pot pie thanks to Rosie, and the cherry pie and chocolate cake were a hit.  We even got a few non veggie eaters to try her amazing green beans lightly grilled on the bbq with salt and then tossed in parmesan cheese.  Breakfast was a hit as well, and the travellers have left home base for what is our light trail today.  A few folks have stayed behind to change springs and work on trucks.

Rosie and I are preparing for tonights supper, and then hopefully napping before the hungry masses return.

Early Sunday morning, so tired, but thought I'd post a couple of photos of last night.  Today is the challenging trail for some, and the winery tour for others.

A huge thanks to Julie and Peter and all their helpers for a superb Labour Day  Rally again this year. The trails were exactly right with a great green lane drive on Saturday and a more challenging trail today. The choice between the trail and the winery tour was a hard one to make. As always meeting with old friends and getting to know new folks was what its all about. 
A happy but tired, John

Awesome weekend with out a doubt! We are very happy to have been part of it. Great food, great trails and I've heard the winery tour was a good time as  well. Most of all excellant company!

I wonder if we can create an album in the gallery section of the forum and post pictures there. That way they are easier to view! But I am not sure if one member can create a folder in the gallery that anyone can add to...

Looking forward to seeing everyone again next year or earlier!
