Hey... how light was that Airstream that was being pulled by the bicycle? I could get some good coverage, and maybe even the cover of Airstream Life if I pull it to the rally with my ten speed....LOL....!!!

I have actually witnessed a towing demonstration with a mountain bicycle being utilized to tow a 1948 Airstream Liner (I think that the coach was 22', but am not certain). The coach was owned by Clyde Wagner, leader of the 1999 Wagon Wheel Caravan to the WBCCI International Rally in Dayton, OH. Several of the VAC members tried their luck with the setup with varying degrees of success. The bicycle was equipped with a trailer brake controller and battery for power, and the trailer was completely empty but had most if not all of its factory furnishings. The photos below are those that I took during the demonstration.

Kevin, you are awesome!

I'll have to give it a try. I may have to head toward Moraine View in early May to get there, but what a rush!

Thanks
Ron

As if being a group of twenty or so funny looking metallic campers wouldn't draw enough attention from our neighbors at a state park, imagine if you will: -everyone dressed in clothes from the era their unit was built
-colorful fun hawaiian clothes; everyone sipping from coconuts
-pajamas
-or the old stand by, TOGA!!!!!

the ideas keep coming to me. All input is appreciated.

Hawaiian would be fun.....would give me a chance to wear mine...hasn't been worn in a couple of years. Now if anybody has those fake palm trees, would go well with the flamingos.

I say we think about the theme of

"Trailer Trash"

.. which is MUCH more politically correct than OTHER kinds of trash.

I have several cookbooks of GREAT recipes regarding such.. everything from drinks to food.

Themes and Related Activities

Greetings All!

All of this talk of themes made me think of one of the most hillarious get acquainted activities that I have ever experienced. It was a game that we played on the first night of our Wagon Wheels 1999 Carvan at the East Bay State Park in Ohio. It was called The Hat Game and it was based loosely on a combination of Musical Chairs and Simon Says. Everyone was asked to bring an unusual hat to wear for this activity. For each round one hat was taken out of circulation and if you didn't have a hat when the leader called stop, you were out - - in the meantime the leader would call switch along with a direction (left or right) and you would take your hat and place it on your neighbors head. It was so much fun. Some of the hats even had stories of their own that were told by their owners! The photos that I have attached are a selection from that activity.

All of this discussion makes me wish that I could attend, but I will be on the 2005 Wagon Wheels Caravan during this year's rally.

Ummm.. Kevin.. no offense, but I don't want to wear other people's hats.

That's a health issue. I want my OWN hat.

I printed out the form this morning to send off to Moraine View. I've been hesitant only because our home is on the market and we're not exactly sure what the next few months have in store for us. But I guess it won't hurt to send it off and hope for a free weekend! Anyone wanna buy my house? And hey, anyone have a house they want to sell me? We don't ask for much......we just want a Champagne house on a beer shack budget.

Now wait a second.....the same woman who wanted a "Trailer Trash" theme is afraid of a little healthy hat swap? C'mon.......all the cool kids are doing it. The worst that could happen is a little lice infestation - really, no big deal. Live on the edge!
