Other Rallies I've Attended
Like last year, I got a head start & arrived at the Riverside Park Campground & Motel on Thursday. I took NY 104 all the way to Niagara Falls, NY, and crossed at Rainbow Falls. The procedure for crossing with an RV has changed since the last time I crossed here - you now pull up to a stop outside the main building, go inside with your passport, answer the usual questions, then go back to your vehicle & wait for them to bring back your passport. It only took a few minutes, and was easier than waiting in line for the usual border check.
Since I wasn't planning to attend this year (I was going to stay in the West after my trip to Alaska, but came stomach problems had me coming back to Oswego early - with a change in medication, I'm now doing much better) so with a late registration, I'm on the outskirts of the group in Site 85. A water & 30 amp electric site with a concrete pad for $36.63 per night with fairly slow WiFi. I'll try to see if my MiFi can pick up a Verizon tower across the river in the US.

There are some other early arrivals -
Friday, September 18, another beautiful day! I decided to bake one of my pies this evening rather than trying to do two tomorrow. Unfortunately, by the time I got around to making the rounds of the trailers, it was pretty dark so the images are not that great, but here are today's:
Saturday started out with a bit of light rain, then cloudy, with rain off & on. It is now 1:00 & a bit windy, but the rain is holding off, at least for awhile. It would be great if the rain would hold off until after the pot luck dinner, however I checked the radar image on my iPad, and it doesn't look good! I baked my second blueberry pie, showed the trailer to a number of folks, and made a round of picture taking:
We did get a bit of rain, but the weather was on our side. Heavy downpours on both sides of us, but here at the campground only a few sprinkles. The pot luck & door prizes went off well, as usual. Thanks to Alf & Marianne, Reace & Tammy, and all who donated prizes & helped organize the the rally. While this is the "official" end of the rally, about 40 of us are heading to Betty's for brunch tomorrow morning.
Sunday morning I added a phot of our brunch at Betty's. A great time had by all for the entire weekend.
