great job by everyone who help with the run.. Can't say enough about all the years behind.. Hard to believe that 30 yrs has gotten away and that Thaw is history now.. So Sad but had a great time and will be looking ahead to the next run... Thanks again for all the years...

I was fortunate enough to make the 1st Spring Thaw.
I really wish I could say I was able to make all of them.
I was able to attend the last one.
While I all ways liked the grounds at Shangri La the best.I think this camp ground was the best one we have visited.
I believe this one had the largest van show compared to the last couple of years.
I all so noticed some very nice new vans at this event.Along with a couple of vans that have been around for a while that have been freshened up.
As far as "lifer" vanners go I am pretty sure Garry Kerr has made every Spring Thaw.If not all pretty close to all of them.
It is always neat to put new faces to the names of vanners who hang out here at vannin.com.Vanfun,Cherry,and Mutt,looked to me like they where having a good time.The neat thing is they looked like they where all seasoned vanners.
This seasoned vanner had a blast.









I am really sorry to see this van event being retired.

......Wookee

I really enjoyed all the years of putting on this event. We started it in 1982 and ended it in 2012. 30 events. Hard to believe. I searched and found all my shirts from all the years. Had them displayed at my stand. The vendors row was one of best I have seen if I have to say so myself. Have never seen a set up like that and it worked so well. Wish we would have found this grounds years ago. Would be nice if Generation Next could continue with this grounds but geographically it is not a good location for them. Time will tell.

We had about 120 vans through the gate including our own club. Was a great turn out. The rain hit on Thursday night but never the rest of the weekend. Was cold but the evant was Hot. Jesse rocked us on Friday night and Faded Daze on Saturday night. The end of an era was bittersweet and a bit emotional. Just glad everyone was there to share it with us.
