Please send more booze asap. There is an epidemic of thirst.

Oh, more spray paint too. Lots of huffing happening here!

Relocating the CAN

Our first Rally was a blast: great folks, many new friends and fresh ideas about Streamin'.
What a great time at the Opener Rally here at Top Sail.
However, it's time to cap the can and head to St. George's Island and St. Joseph's for a few days!
Thanks for the and the bandwidth!!!!!

Hope to share another Rally with you all sometime down the road.

My First Can Opener Rally

Just made it home from my First Can Opener Rally and what a nice group of folks to spend a rally with, even the cold weather didn't slow our spirits down. I had a great time and put some faces with the forum names. Gave the Snuggie (Rally Prize) to my wife, she likes it. I think she wants to attend next year. Everyone, be safe in your travels and maybe our paths will cross in the near future.

Best Regards,

We just concluded another great CanOpener! Thanks Devoman! Well, I don't know where to start. Saturday was a lot of fun. With not a cloud in the sky, the tour of the trailers was a hit. Yes, we had layers of clothes on but everyone was out and about visiting and checking out all of the trailers (I believe the final count was 29 trailers). It seemed warmer and the temps weren't a problem. The potluck dinner was delicious - compliments to all the chefs out there. The raffle was exceptional with Artstream's and Inland RV's contributions. After dinner, a number of campers stayed in the clubhouse to socialize and enjoy Pete's (Foilwarped) music. The potluck breakfast in the clubhouse today (Sunday) couldn't have been better. The bottomline is that this was a fantastic rally with people seeing old friends and making new friends. I believe we'll see many photos posted by attendees over the next week. Reminder to everyone - post some of your pictures. And Chief is going to produce a video of the CanOpener - stay tuned for that. We did miss those of you who normally attend - see you next year. Peace.

The dogs and I had a wonderful introduction to rally-ing and being with fellow AS'ers. I am so GLAD I persisted with the cold weather, because I enjoyed meeting so many of you, and really got re-enthusiastic about my project. I loved being able to see the variety of years and interiors of the trailers and what everyone has done to personalize them. It was also nice to see some in unfinished conditon, and it will be fun for me to see those same trailers down the road and further along. All in all, I am impressed with the turnout- the whole country seems to be in a deep freeze-- kudos to all who could get out- and did get out to come! It was a good time and I feel as though I really have some new friends :-) Thanks to Devoman for starting this, and to everyone who helped and participated.

The Can Opener proves that Airstream folks are hardy survivalist types capable of taking on any weather to get out there and have fun. Robin and I say "thank you" to all the volunteers who helped in many ways for this Air Forum Rally. May there be many more.

Want to say thank-you to the Can Opener organizers. It was a terrific mix of organized events, informal comaraderie and downtime. Despite the chilly weather, or maybe because of it, the weekend will certainly be memorable as our very first Airstream event. Have to make a special note of the contribution made by Luckyducks, who quietly assists in just about every facet of the event and helps make everything work smoothly.

BTW, boy did I get it wrong when I thought that the Flying J's would be quiet. I failed to consider all the refugees from the even more frozen north.

Sun bathing at Santa Rosa Beach

Well we have needed to use our sun glasses and my sunburn is actually a wind burn. C.B. and I had the unique experience of breaking ice with our kayaks yesterday.We really enjoyed the rally and are having fun exploring possibilities for our trip next year. "They" say that we will finally get out of the hard freeze tomorrow, we'll see.We moved to 142 today for the next 5 days before returning home.I backed up folks, didn't take out a tree, my husband or the picnic table. Currently I am Miss Lucielle's Gossip Parlor taking advantage of her WIFI.Thanks again to all the great folks who made the rally so enjoyable. It was good to see old friends and make new. Airstream folks are the best!!!!

ah yes, the gossip parlor...

it's really changed this year. they still have the kitchy signs but,

they put in a 'beach food' place and changed the decor from quilts and doilies to miami vice...

and NEXT YEAR there are big changes coming for the area...

the publix in grand blvd may CLOSE, moving to the new south walton beach publix east of TS....

and a WALLYVILLE supercenter is slated to go in on 98 very near TS too...

lets hope the gulf glaciers have melted by then...

and IF it snows, shovels will be readily available.

in fact how about a logo'd shovel or stocking hat next year instead tees...

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

I hate to hear that - I tend to gravitate towards the "older" beach town atmosphere. Landed here to use the internet. Heard the "mature" lady that waited on me tell a young whipper snapper that she "pleaded down to simple possesion." Just love the local color. Ha! Come on by if you have a chance or are out walkikng Max.

CanOpener 2010 was our first forum rally and it was awesome! It took us a few days to getting around to posting this, because we're still detoxing and thawing out, but want to thank everyone for putting together such a good time. Annette made the best Bloody Marys we've ever had, the food was wonderful, and we learned a lot from the open house tour. Enjoyed meeting you and putting a face to some of the avatars- Ike T is not nearly so intimidating in person . Hope to see you down the road. Pete and Sandy

The deal to see the photos is simple.

1. You make and share the bread pudding at the 2010 Springstream.

2. If we (we being Anne and I) are unable to attend the 2010 Springstream, you make and share the bread pudding the next time we (we being Anne, you, and I) rally together.

3. No excuses allowed. If you die before you deliver, I'll see you and your bread pudding in the after-life inferno.


We made it home safely. Only incident was nearly sandwiching a Corolla that made an ill-advised pass then brake and swerve in front of us.

As usual, we had a great time no matter what. Great to see old friends and make new friends. Thanks again Steve for hosting the rally and the volunteer team that makes it all happen!
