Cant make the council this year. Maybe next. Will their be any live feed this year? Youall have fun.


Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by a CLEAN end.

Had a great time over past few days. Met lot of vanners from this board and from other media sources. Sitting in the meetings and attending Judith's seminar and Coop's seminar I was able to learn a lot, especially vanning history. I appreciate everyone comments on our van that we brought out to the show today. And ultimately, the stories!!!
