Spring Rally in Andover, VT

What a great time we had in Andover, VT at the North-East Truck Camping Jamboree last weekend. We've finally gotten the truck camper all cleaned up inside and out, reprovisioned and the extra stuff taken to VT taken out. We're planning a long summer trip and are trying to lighten the load to haul along.

We went from an empty field to a total of 31 truck campers with over 65 people!

Part of the crowd

We had classes on propane compartment leaks, refrigerator maintenance, fly fishing, DeLorme mapping for route planning and seam caulking/maintenance. We played "Fishy" a form of Bingo, held a 50/50 raffle and raffled off a multitude of great door prizes. Here's Mike T talking about refrig maintenance.

The Friday night hot dog roast was a smashing success with only a dozen dogs left over! We had drink/snack gatherings, pot luck supper, and the traditional men cook the breakfast morning.

We had great weather with only one gully washer rain storm but that was when we were in the rec hall having pot luck. Lots of old friends seen again and lots of new friends met. We're so glad we started truck camping.
