This is a tough one, but I'm trying to do a write up on the Nats and would like to know what your favorite moment was. Everyone has a different experience when they go to a van run.

seeing the great turnout for the show and shine....

seeing new/young/2nd gen vanners there with their own vans and showing, and even winning!

the great photo shoot, even without the walking eye candy, seeing those vans lined up as they were was beautiful.

WoW good question, Where to start!?

On the tops of my list are Side trips to Long Trout Winery and also the Vanners night out at Cousins Pub. Could be because when I was there I wasnt working!LOL The Junk Yard tour was fun too however a little bit too hot on a hangover!

The great people I got to converse with all week is definatly a highlight too, and of coarse serving U up at the blender party on Friday was fun for me too! went thru aprox 10 half gallons of rum n vodka and many many mixers in about 2.5 hours! WOW

The HUGE nightlight show was also VERY nice...

I loved seeing the delighted faces and hearing the stories of the vanners who found their van(s) on the bar.

The one-on-one time I usually spend with a vanner (try to do that on a daily basis, and it's something I try to do at each eVANt I attend).

The scenery of the countryside.

The accomodating host club. Thank you.

too many good times to pick just one but,

Meeting the guys from Bluegrass Vanners(parked right across from us), What a great bunch of people!, One of there club members said this to us while doing the bucket."Don't worry bout us cause we are more scared of you then you are of us"..lol....

7 days and 6 crazy nights of Vannin. Need I say more!

found 3 stripper poles on the grounds(all of which were used while I watched with no camera)mad

Most of all was meeting up with the Vannin.com people. I still missed seeing many of you guys but thats ok cause theres plenty of Vannin season left...
