I am feeling Skinnie



Actually, that is only in the camaraderie sense.  We recently attended our second Skinnie Winnie rally at Live Oak Landing Resort in Freeport, Florida.  A total of 39 rigs gathered for great fun and information.  There were  some really great meals provided by the volunteers to make the gathering a big success. One of the food highlights of our five days was the fish fry- really good.  There was also a small group that played Texas holdum poker, and I will avoid mentioning that I was the big winner.





We have been to so many rallies and other group events that I have started to generally avoid the informational seminars as either: I have heard it before or I am immune to the sales pitch.  However, I did attend the one seminar offered here called the technical session.  Normally, in these kind of sessions there is a wide diversity of rigs and lots of cross information.  In this case everyone had the same equipment and the information exchanged applied to everyone in the group. 

We had a great time and hope to make more of these events, as they are held around the country about five times a year.

We mostly had pretty good weather for Feb and one morning I managed to get up early enough to take some pictures of the sun rising on our waterfront campground in the river system.  I have made a note to myself to try and get up early more often!

I seldom attend rallies, but that one sounded like it was a good one for you.

I do think it was nice of you not to mention who won. :-). I would love to attend a gathering of all rigs just like Winnona. I think I'd learn a lot. Really beautiful sunrise pictures. My favorite time of day. I love the quiet.

It is great when a good time is had by all. The venue looked nice as well!

We have never attended a rally, but I agree with Judy that this one sounded like a good one.

We seldom attend rallies but that's usually because there are so many people at them. Love the fog over the water photos.

There is something addictive about sunrises... maybe it's the effort one has to make to be awake to see them.

Congratulations on not mentioning your big win! lol

I love those morning shots. The fog makes the water look gorgeous.

That looks like a beautiful park! Great pictures!

It's hard to be humble when you're a good poker player. Just be thankful you didn't have a "Dead Man's Hand"... ;c)

I saw way too many sunrises during my career. Now that I'm a retired bum, I find early mornings to be over rated. :cD

Your early morning pictures are great!

You should definitely be getting up early if those are the sorts of views to be had.

We go to a Titanium rally once a year - it is a fun way to make new friends as we all start off with something in common.

Have not made it to a rally yet, that looked like a good one.
