We so much enjoyed the several GE@H we attended. Especially the last 3 or so. Going to really miss the colorful and informative web site. Jeanene has a great knack at such things and makes it look so easy. Undoubtedly a lot of effort was put into Pickensville. And it would have most likely been the best rally yet.
All is not necessarily lost. Folks can still meet there and enjoy friendship that comes with camping. Some of the most fun we have had were at "Gatherings". Nothing at all planned except for the dates. A leader somehow always emerges and events occur. Might be nothing more than gathering around a fire and telling stories, or some talented individual with a guitar spinning some tunes.
Pickensville is a bit far for me to tow any longer. So we weren't going to attend . A couple of us have decided to meet up at Gunter Hill 03/11-03/15 and just enjoy the beautiful campground, and a few easy days relaxing. Maybe go over to Prattville for some meals.
Could be some others are thinking the same way, as there are 10 or so sites reserved for those dates, as of a couple of hours ago!.. I do hope that Shorty and Jeanene and the many great volunteers that made GE&H such a success can understand how much that great rally meant to so many people.
God be with you all.
