We had a great time, thanks again to Mike and Will for putting it all together again! :applause:

No pics yet, we are on a 'short turnaround' as we are camping again this weekend for the "Trailer Trash Bash" in Canon city.

I will post pics, though, probably next week. Glad I finally got to participate in a Lantern Light Up! Got all 4 of my lanterns burning, special thanks to Terry for getting my black-band 200a going. :thumbsup:

Lenora & I made this our 'big' trip for 2014. Left central Arkansas early Sat morning Aug 9th, & took 5 1/2 days getting to New Fork Lake (woodbutcher, we spent a couple of days at Firehole C/G before making it on up to Pinedale, wonderful place!). Had an absolutely great time, both traveling & at the gathering. We arrived at the C/G a little after noon on Thursday & for a while we wondered if we were in the right place :roll: . No one was there & tho the gate was unlocked it hadn't been opened yet. We pushed it open & drove on in & found a parking spot. Waited around a couple of hours but no one showed. We'd forgotten a couple of items we needed to get in Pinedale, & it was our oldest Great Grandaughter's 13th birthday so we un-hitched & drove back to town to get our stuff & call/text her B'day wishes. Met/passed Steve & Cynthia coming in while still on the gravel road, & they were all setup when we returned along with Martin & Liz, & Will & Lisa. Other folks arrived throughout the day & Friday. Was beginning to think Mike was 'ducking out' on us but he arrived Saturday morning. Had rain showers Thur & Fri but Sat was nice all day. Beautiful location but Lenora & I aren't used to temperatures like that in August (lows in the 40's don't feel so good to us anymore, especially when you hafta 'get-up' & go outside in the night :o ). Met some great folks & was especially happy to finally meet Mike, aka slow cowboy. Couldn't ask for a nicer host, & Will kept things moving along 'til Mike arrived. It's a long drive for us (around 1435 miles, one way) so we may not make it again for a few years but we will if things work out. Left Sunday morning & drove up thru Grand Teton & Yellowstone NP's which we hadn't seen for a number of years. Spent most of one day touring the Buffalo Bill Museum & western center in Cody, WY; then on to the Wind River Canyon near Shoshoni, WY. Temps were beginning to moderate there but lotsa flies kept us from enjoying it as much as we might have. Spend a couple more days heading SE & finally made it back home 'bout eleven Thursday nite :thumbsup: . Been resting up & catching up on stuff at home today. Took lotsa pix & will try to post a few here...

Think we may have had the same campsite as Woodbutcher at Firehole C/G -

for slow this was not the funnest gathering I had been to in the last 3 years as I had to do one of the hardest things in my life this spring and I had a big loss on my mind the hole time I was at the gathering. My mind was on last year and walk the winds 2 and the memorys of my painful loss this spring on the hole trip were still pretty raw in my mind. but the nice folks at the gathering as normal kept me from wanting to just sit down and burst in to tears. its the nice folks in life like at this gathering that help a guy a lot in life. not the raw memorys from the past. it was a smaller gathering this year and I was kinda dissapponite when everyone broke camp right away early and left before breakfast on sunday moring. normaly we have one last potluck breakfast. was not pleased on this one and it will get bettor organized last year as I think we dissappointed some other folks that were not planning on pulling out sunday moring. we will need some improvement on this one.

other than that it was a normal walk the winds fun freindly gatheirng on the smaller scale we had great folks from all over and we still had great food and a wonderful coleman lantern light off.

the list for next years events so everyone knows a head of time will be offically saturday night potluck and night gather around the main campfire. after coleman lantern light off and main group photo before dark. sunday moring will be offically potluck.

I ended up having to work this year on friday as last year but got there in time to catch the end on saturday moring. as normal I forgot half of the important stuff to camp with.

having a flipper to turn the eggs in the skillet is kinda important as forks dont work that great!!!!!

I spent the gathering socializing and trying to wind down and dump a huge crap load of stress this year.

Thanks for posting the pictures Mike. If you want any help next year with organizing just let me know. When you have time PM me, I have a couple ideas, you might like.
Next year will be better.
This is a fun outing in a beautiful place, and well worth the trip. I am thinking about coming again in 2015.


Harvey, great pictures, thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed Firehole Canyon. It looks like you were in the same site! Close to the showers and with the best view of the scenery.

Here are some of my pictures:

Our furry friend "Bucky" checking out the campsite. Beautiful, isn't he? And in full velvet, too:

Image

I thought he was a whitetail but someone else was pointing out that he had some mule deer features, too, so he might be a hybrid of some kind?

Our campsite. We got a nice rainbow right after a mild rainshower.

Image

Bucky was wandering around as I was trying to read!

Image

"If you have some extra food, could you just leave it out on your table? That'd be great! Thanks!"

Image

Jane showed off her impressive new trailer

Image

Dee was there in her Vintage Scotty, too!

Image

I really liked Will and Lisa's little fiberglass "pod."

Image

TO BE CONTINUED!!

CONTINUED...

We brought our Kayaks this year (and left our puppy Shaila at home to be spoiled by grandma.) This is Liz and Dee out on New Fork Lake

Image

It really is a great place to kayak. This is looking North towards the canyon.

Image

Back at camp, we found this cute little frog hopping around. He was about the size of a dime!

Image

Terry and Dottie, the compartment on the side of the trailer is Dottie's little sleeping platform!

Image

Terry and I fussing with my black-band 200a. He helped me get it running!

Image

It burns!

Image

This was the first year I actually had lanterns to light at the lighting of the lanterns! I was too busy trying to pump up my 200a to see Liz taking my picture:

Image

Not as many lanterns as last year but still spectacular:

Image

Image

My four lanterns: Two black/blue Sears (small and big hat), 200a and of course, the Turd! (275!)

Image

Group photo at pot luck dinner

Image

All in all another great gathering! Thanks again to Mike and Will!
