Our First Rally — Cherokee, NC

A few of the little fiberglass eggs at the rally

It is so much fun to be camping with so many other little fiberglass trailers.  I’m not sure how many are here, but I would guess a couple of dozen.

The little stream behind our trailer

I finally got to meet several people who I had known as just usernames on the fiberglass boards.  Lynne, whose blog I love following, and her husband David.  Jean, who travels with her two small dogs and has done so many fantastic mods, Wilco (Steve) who is as much fun in person as he is on the boards, along with lots of others whose names kind of run together for me right now.  I’ll try to get them straight tomorrow.  🙂

Tomorrow is the Egg Parade, where we get to see the interiors of everyone else’s trailers.  I got a sneak peek inside Lynne’s beautiful little 16′ Casita today (which made me realize how much I really miss a dedicated dinette), a gorgeous Scamp 13 Deluxe and a 13′ UHaul with a fireplace today.   So I can’t wait to see inside the others!

…and three trout

There’s a crystal clear, bubbling stream running a few feet behind our trailer.  It’s a happy, peaceful background sound.  I wish it was warm enough to sleep with our windows open so we could listen to it at night when we are inside.

The high point of our day was following Lynne and David to a nearby waterfall.  I had Sheba pull me up the steep steps to the short trail to the waterfall, which made the climb a lot easier. 🙂

Our biggest problem has been controlling Sheba when she is around other people.  She insists on lunging toward — and jumping on — every person who gets within leash range.  Holding her back is a major job.  It will be a relief when she outgrows puppyhood!

    I have always wanted to go to one of these. Looks like you guys setttled on a lovely location and will go home with some great new ideas. Have fun!

    Love waterfalls. Hi to Lynne and David.

    • Emily, Lynne and David mentioned you — and Lynne showed me the beautiful blue wind chime decoration you made for her! If I see them before they leave in the morning I will tell them. 🙂

  3. What fun! I would love to see an Egg parade. The other folks are really going to enjoy touring yours too.

    • Kim, it was amazing! What was the most fascinating to me were all the little OLD eggs — from the mid 80’s that have been restored to better than new — and cuter than you can imagine!

    Sounds like so much fun. I love your shots of the waterfall. Have fun.
    PS. I never have missed not having a dinette I think they are uncomfortable and a waste of space. But that’s just me. I love your rig and what you have done to it. 🙂

    • Thanks so much, Jo. A lot of people really loved my little camper, and I did so enjoy showing it off!

    • Cozygirl, you would LOVE it. Everyone was happy. It felt like an instant community since we all have a shared love for our little eggs! Looking forward to meeting you in person at one someday!

    Sounds and looks like you are having a great time. I’d love to see so many small fiberglass eggs in one place. Oh well, maybe next year!
