Hi: All. The 2012 Niagara Wine Escape is slated for the weekend of Sept.14-16th. at The Riverside Motel and Campground, 13451 Niagara Pkwy., Niagara Falls Ontario.www.riversidepark.net Call 905-382-2204 and tell them your with the Staceys or the Bolers or the Fiberglass Trailers, and they will try to put us all together.

Lots of Wineries for sampling and buying!!!

Lots of shade to just relax in!!!

That is one fantastic-looking event, Alf!
Thanks for the photos, Jon and Jim. I am sure that was sumptuous pie.
Do you know what kind of tree that is?

It was a lovely time, and Ian and I enjoyed meeting you all. Thanks again Alf for organizing it and to Mary Anne for your support.
Thanks to you all for your photos - here are a few more. I've never used a photo site before but there were too many to add in the text - I hope this link works! 2012 Niagara Rally
If that doesn't work - try this one http://jennyeddyphotography47.shutte...om/pictures/36
Happy camping!

Re: Niagara Wine Escape 2012 Sept. 14-16th-story of woe

Interesting story on our trip to/fro Niagara Falls, Cn. New passport for all 3 of us, 2 dogs, worried about the dog food situation, breezed thru Canadian customs on way to rally. On return trip, remember's Alf pepper fiasco and I had an apple in my sink under the cover. We crossed the bridge back into states , present passports and got stopped. "We would like to inspect your trailer and all 3 need to go to customs, please pull over there". I locked the truck with both dogs inside, locked the trailer, disconnected the plug and went into customs. We sat until our name was called, All 3 of us went up and they instructed Noelia and Brittany to sit and wanted just me. They asked me if my passport has ever been stolen or lost? I said no, it is only 30 days new. They then wanted to know my password? I looked at them, he looked at the screen, called over 2 more agents, they looked at the screen and said to me, "It says there is a password on the account" Again I had no idea what they wanted. They told me to sit down and conferred. Because an event 3 years ago someone had used my cc on line and ordered $5k of items from Las Vegas. I had tracked them down to an apt in New Jersey. The cc company said I needed a police report and they would reverse the charges. I called local police, filed report gave them the perpetrator's name and that was done. But unknown to me, that report has a password that I must have given to the policeman, which I thought was for the report. Well this is/was the password that had frozen my account with customs. I said, I had no idea and questioned why was I given a passport without this "ID" and showed them my photo id permit to carry, my old government id and said that was all I had other than my license and passport. Finally, they said ok, you are free to go and we rushed out of there. I said let's go, I'm not waiting for them to inspect the trailer and find that apple. We rushed back to the vehicle, got in and I took off down the road. Finally a minute later I realized, "Oh crap" I forgot to reattach the trailer plug. There it was, scrapping along the ground, I lost about 1/2 inch rubber on one side, but everything still worked when I plugged in.
Upon return I went down to local police department and asked for a copy of the police report, they said they do not have it, all they have is an incident number and an online version. I explained I needed to see it to get my password that is someplace on the report. she asked for my license and then wrote down on a piece of paper the password.
So in conclusion, remember your password if your identity has ever been stolen.
Postscript:
Went to a wedding this week and there was another person there with the exact same name as mine. Thinking there was a mistake, I sought out this other guest to see who it was. We started talking and later I mentioned the password episode and the false Las Vegas charges on my cc. This other person looked at me and said with a straight face "You know my wife and I wanted to send you a thank you note for paying for our wedding in Las Vegas, but we had not had to opportunity until now"
We both burst out laughing.
