Usually we just talk about how/why you got into airstreaming, etc... but we're up for whatever.

I just need to see if there is interest because I'll have some planning to do. Otherwise, I can just do the show on Thursday before the rally as usual.

I'd love to hear people's Airstream histories. I'd even be willing to talk if that would get other people talking.

........so ya wanna hear our tale of buying an Ebay Airstream 800 miles away in Oregon and a friend from Vegas volunteering to take us up for it because I was recovering from 2 hip replacements and Lynn a month after her disabling stroke? That's about it..........except Lynn hated Airstreams...

Bodega Bay....pre Casini Rally rally.

Just once....ONCE, I would like for hitching up at the house to go without a.....hitch....pun intended! Hitching our trailer on our sloped driveway....and a 'twist' of the pavement where the car is is a challenge. Once all connected I do not know if it's right until I find flat and level ground.....usually about 5 miles on the road...


Anyway we have arrived at Westside Park, Bodega Bay. This place is packed. Hope to see some other shiny rigs beginning Sunday when Paul and Dee arrive. I don't know who else will be here. We had about 5 shiny drainpipes here last year.

We gassed up in Cordelia Junction today when this '77 Tradewind pulled in. A brief chat about our shiny toys revealed that the couple is from Grass Valley near where my good friend and who I bought the Olds from. I asked if they were headed to Casini and the rally. She sounded excited and interested but never heard of Airforums. I told her how to access it and it was everything Airstream.......maybe we'll see them down 'the road'.

I see empty spots in the row closest to the bay....THAT is not packed, Neil ;-) . I have seen every site occupied, and it is crazy when that happens! The big question is....is site #39 occupied??? We were not figuring on leaving until after noon, but will leave earlier if our site is open.

How is the weather? It was windy all day here....gave me an excuse to stay inside and watch the Giants get beat 1-0 by the Rockies . Bailey is pacing....he knows we are going, and he is ready (toys in the trailer and dog food packed!).

See you tomorrow when we get there...

Well, Dee if your day isn't as good as it should be.....leave your frustrations behind. 39 IS occupied. Check out is noon and the ranger patrols frequently as does to camp host. The empty 'spot' was filled shortly after I took the picture. An evening walk with Lizzy confirms ALL sites are FULL.. ...'spose to be a smiley face here but it won't click on.

Casini called us today to confirm, pre pay and pre check us in so the line isn't too long on Friday. I thought that was good customer service.

theVAP on FM Radio

I picked up a FM transmitter for the rally. I'm going to broadcast Vintage VAP episodes during the rally.

I'm planning on using 88.5 for the station. I'll post a sign on my rig, so check there just in case.
