2016 Valley of Fire Meet and Greet

We had a wonderful meet and greet this weekend at the Valley of Fire north of Las Vegas. Twenty-three SMBs were originally scheduled to attend, but several mishaps occurred that kept many people away at the last minute. There were only 12 rigs in attendance, but we still had a great time.

Except it was very hot (94 degrees on Friday afternoon) and extremely windy. Most of us had to hunker down inside our rigs instead of socializing on Friday and Saturday night. But there were a few brave souls who ventured out. And we all had a great time, despite the sand in our eyes and hair.

Here is the group on Saturday morning, all dressed up in our SMB T-shirts:

Apparently I can only upload five pictures at a time (Arrrrrggggghhhh!!!!). So I will have to post this and then make several more posts. I am an efficiency expert for a living, and this forum site drives me crazy!!!!!

Pictures of the campsite area. I was able to save sites again this year, so everyone was in the same area. It worked out great!

Kathy with remote control rock climbing car. Henry had one too, but is out of the picture. The cars were a hit. Waymon was a pro driving the car for his first time.

Wish w could have been there. Would have loved to be away from the wind and rain here's in Oregon. Looks like you had a great time.

TeamRD's cat is a hairless Sphynx cat. Very spooky looking.

yvrr's cat is a Bengal Leopard cat. It looks just like a miniature leopard.

I wish my pictures were bigger so you could see just how interesting-looking these cats are.
