After reading this I had a very scary Raystown Lake flashback grin.

I'm taking "Lee'Sure Time" back down to Maryland today, I'll post some pix later today after I return.

OMG, that's what happened to US while packing up to go home. I had left the car keys on the picnic table, and SOMEONE packed them in a bag. We were all packed up and ready to go, and couldn't find the keys. SOMEONE had no recollection of packing the keys away. SOMEONE and I spent 20 minutes searching the campsite and then unpacking the truck until we found them. SOMEONE was very apologetic.

Anyway, it was a very fun weekend, and I was glad to meet some of you goofs that I converse with almost every day! I missed having our 12 year old around, and he'll definitely be with us next year. I also wished the boat was in the water all weekend, instead of having to take it off/on every day. I think we would have boated more, but the hassle of launching and retrieving made us not use it as much.

Can't wait 'til next year!

Yes, we made it! Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you. When did you leave?

Hi Bob, I'm sorry we didn't meet too. We left Sunday at Noon. The Admiral wasn't feeling too good Sunday morning. My first thought was that the second mate was on his/her way but we've ruled that possibility out.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner. We didn't get back till late last night. The weather was just to nice to leave. And then I had to go to Baltimore early today. Just got back a little bit ago. I just want to say it was nice seeing everyone again. You could of not ask for a better weekend to come up. I left our camera on the boat. So I won't be able to post anything till next weekend.

GripB I am happy that route worked good for you.

How about all the Ford trucks in these photos: F150, F250's & F350 (can't forget Just Bob's Durango).

My son's football camp and my daughter's cheerleading camp cut into my time (tonight and tomorrow night) that I was planning on going through my pictures. I'll re-size and post later this week.

Cattails is sitting down, On Holiday's boat in the foreground. At one time we had 16 boats rafted up. The first 8 boats were anchored and the last 8 were tied up to Cattails boat. This left us a question on how many boats can be tied to an anchor?

Yeah, but I bet those Fords made it all the way home WITH AIR CONDITIONING. The "Dingo" didn't. I just got the estimate - $950 to replace the compressor, and a couple of other things. It's expensive because the whole system has to be replaced, including the rear A/C thingies.

I went truck shopping last night, but we decided to fix the Dingo and not take on 4 or 5 years of car payments right now, with this volatile economy at this point.

It looks like one thing you are missing is the forward slash at the end of the url. You have [img] and it needs to be [/img]. This is for the end one only, not the beginning one. You actually used "image" instead of "img", which is fine, the forum software automatically converts it to "img".

But this isn't the real problem in this case. The url you are using won't work even with this change. Sorry if this goes long but it seems like several people have had this problem lately. The Boatingabc photo site is a little tricky. It looks like you went to your BABC photo site hosted photo, right-clicked, selected properties and copied the image url:

http://www.boatingabc.com/photos/watermark.php?file=1472&size=1

Compare that to the url On Holiday used for the same image:

http://www.boatingabc.com/photos/data/500/medium/IMG00016-20090807-1901.jpg

To get the url OH used you have to go to go to your BABC gallery, click on the picture you want, in this case "sunset friday night" to bring up the larger photo. The screen looks like this:



At the bottom just below the Linked Thumbail url box is a little icon of a picture frame with a little chain link. Click on this to open up several boxes with linking options.

The screen will now look like this:



Now you can simply copy/paste the "Medium Image:" url directly into your BABC post to get the same image as OH did. The coding is already done so there is no need to use the Image posting icon in the BABC thread reply box. Just directly paste what you already copied.

If you use the "Direct link:" url at the bottom, then you are going to need to add the coding either manually or by using the "Enter an image" icon in the BABC full reply box.

I hope this helps. There may be an esier, more clear way to use the BABC site but this is all I know. Me, I use Photobucket...just like BABC the price is right...free. What I really like is I don't have to make a duplicate smaller image on my own hardrive before I upload to Photobucket. It lets me choose how big I want the image to end up at the time of upload and converts my big file automatically during the upload process.

Oh, loved the photos, thanks everyone! It looks like it was a fun get together. MM, your cute pup has grown into a beautiful dog as well. So she's not a big water fan though?
