great!

Wannaroam,
We upgraded just a bit since you last saw us. We kept the Minuet, but bought a "new to us" 1989 Excella 1000-29 footer. Since my mom passed in Mar. we are no longer having to sit at home to do home care etc. We are having a fun time camping this year! We will look forward to seeing you and what great stuff you can cook up for the POTluck! LOL!
Have you been doing lots of camping? How is the work on your AS going?
This sounds like a wonderful park. We have never been there. We are looking forward to meeting lots of Airstreamers there.
Lou and Larry

Wow, that new unit sounds great! But I am sorry to hear about your mom passing. We too took care of my mom - she lived with us for 4 years - but she also passed about two years ago.

We have been out several times already this year, mainly to Erie at Sara's in Presque Isle and one trip to the Outflow camping site at the Youghiogheny. That was out first time to boondock - no hookups available that weekend. We had a bit of a struggle to get the fridge working via propane but finally got it going. At this point all systems are going and we even installed a new A/C!
Now, that is not to say that there isn't anything that can/could still be done of course!

We have not been camping in PA in quite awhile. Spent our honeymoon there in several campgrounds 38 yrs. ago. A few years ago we spent some time at Presque d'Isle. A pretty place. We were in a quaint little campground.
We will look forward to seeing your improvements on the AS. The last time we saw it it was still in pretty rough shape and an ongoing project. See you at PennWood!

Bob,
Is this a throw down? I will bring this post to Dave and Lori's attention (bike 2 eat). With all the rain we have been having this year I know they have been having trouble getting out to train. We are headed to Penn Wood tomorrow for a Margartiaville Rally.

I also got a call from Dave tonight wanting to know if it would be OK if they have to move our '87 to higher ground. They got so much rain up there today that the creek next to our trailer is close to flood stage. I hope the waters recede by tomorrow evening and I hope they don't need to move my trailer, I hate backing it up into the site.

We just came back from camping at East Harbor State campgrounds in Ohio. The last day we were there a vintage Caravel pulled in. Of course, I had to go and talk to the owner. Well it turned out that he inherited the unit from his parents and his 94 year old Mother was with him. He is from Jeanette Pa - in the Pgh area.

During the talk he mentioned Penn Woods. Here it turns out that his parents had two AS units - a 25' that was kept at Penn Woods, and the Caravel that they used to travel in. I told him about the rally coming up and he was very excited to come and bring his Mom with him. I didn't have any particulars about it with me, but just told him to call Penn Woods and ask them for the info.

good for u

Isn't it cool when you get to meet another "silver" one on the road? Glad you caught up with them. I hope they get to the rally too.

You didn't say how your vacation was at East Harbor!!?? What did you do and see? Did you have a good week? We were hoping that you might be able to get up to the Metro-Detroit. Sorry you weren't able to make it. We had a good time with 22 or so other Airstream units. I lost count!

Death Defying Entertainment Planned

The rally is drawing closer every day and I have been able to persuade Alex Kensington and Charon Henning to perform some of their death defying feats at one of the evening campfires.

Alex and Charon are lease holders at Penn Wood and have been featured in Airstream Life and Wanderlust Airstream at 75. If you have never heard of them or seen their acts you can read all about them on their website at The Swordswallowers.

I know the rally dates are 10/01-04/2009, but everybody is welcome to come earlier and stay later. The rally dates coincide with the tail end of the annual Autumn Leaf Festival in Clarion. If you are interested in coming for the earlier Autumn Leaf Festival events please do. You can read all about all the planned events on the festival's web site...

Welcome to National City® Autumn Leaf Festival™ 2009!

My wife and I plan on being at Penn Wood all week and there are always full timers in the park and the usual off the road traffic, so you'll have plenty of company.

So if you have been sitting on the fence about attending the rally get signed up, come out and meet some other Airstreamers, and enjoy Penn Wood.

Bibbs,
HECK YEAH you can bring your Argosy motor home! We'd love to have you. There's a totally restored 1979 30' Argosy travel trailer (Happycampers in COSTALOTA) coming all the way from the Lone Star State and we need an Argosy motorhome to round out the collection.

We hope to see you there.

I officially called Penn Woods and told them that we are coming. I have to work until about 4:30 Friday but will have things ready to roll and leave as soon as I get home.

Lou - We had a great time at East Harbor. We mostly just hung out and relaxed, and did some walks with the doggies and I rode my bike some. We did go over to Put-in-Bay but only for around an hour. We took the doggies with us, and the only thing that they hated more than the golf cart was the ferry.

That was ok, it wasn't really my cup of tea anyway. We are more laid back and not into partying and bars and crowds.

I have another week off starting Sept 5th and we are probably going to go back again - love to have some company if anyone else wants to join us.

call the park?

Hey Deitz, do we need to call and make reservations for this?? Let us know.

Wannaroam, glad to hear that you had a good time. I know about Put-in-Bay atmosphere. It has really never been a draw for us either. We are mostly interested in peace and quiet and just hangin' out. If you are going back to East Harbor on Sept. 5th you should post it to the Ohio-informal weekend thread. Here is the link: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f290...-new-post.html
Larry and I will think about that one too. Maybe some of the rest of the Ohioans and MI folks will join in! I wonder how booked up they are for those dates? It will be a popular weekend. Don't forget you are always welcome to come to our house. We are on the way to East Harbor.
