Jim, that's great! I would hate to be the only one at your rally. But I'm sure I could find something to do if I were the only one! Been wanting to go to Dollywood again and that would be the perfect weekend to do it!

Jim,
I just signed up on your Yahoo group for this, I am planning to be at the Oct gathering in our new/old 1997 34ft AS, just have not made reservations yet. I have a trip I am concentrating on getting done at the end of may before I put out money for anything else.

I have started a new web site. Please take some time a visit it. I have posted photos of our rally last year, the Chuckwagon cook off in Pigeon Forge and the DOG we attended at Panther Creek last week end.
Dutchstream - Home

I think this will be the last of my exploring around for a site for "Dutchstream". This web looks promising. Check it our and get acquainted with it. I'll be using this site for my Dutchstream rallies. I'll also use the Air Stream forum to list stuff.

I'm pretty exited about this site.

It's official! We put in for vacation for this. We have the whole week after the rally to explore the area. Trying to decide if we should stay at the campground after the rally or go check out another one. Our main concern is our truck. It does not like big hills with the trailer. Looks like we are OK getting to Sevierville (we are coming from Illinois) but where do the mountains really start? We have taken it to Branson but it looks like the hills are bigger in TN.

Glad to see you found my web site. Thank you for joining.

When you get to the camp ground you will see the mountains. This is a nice clean campground. You are only 1/2 mile past the Lodge store, Knife Works, Coleman and the Tool store. There are many things to do in this area. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are only a short hop down the road. At the campground office they will have many brochures of the area.

We do a lot of Camp Dutch Oven cooking at this rally. I will be offering help on cooking to anyone that needs it. Bring some friends with you that like to camp. This rally is open to everyone.

See you at the Dutchstream rally.

Your hosts,
Jim & Regina

Since I last posted we have sold our 1/2 ton Silverado and purchased a Ford Excursion. Now that we are no longer limited by the truck our campground choices have greatly expanded. Took it on our first family trip last weekend. Daughters (college age) were thrilled to have plenty of room for themselves plus all of their stuff.

Hello to all,
Well the Dutchstream rally is only a few months away. Working at Lodge Store in Sevierville lets me talk to a lot of people. I have been passing out cards for this rally and we should have a larger group than last year.

Bush's bean has opened their new store, museum [that you can inter act with] and a deli. They have great food and a friendly staff. Anyone interested in going on Friday around 11 o'clock let me know so I can let Bush's know how many to expect. I chocked a few recipes out of Duke [the dog]. He is OK now so I didn't hurt him much. We will be making these for you at the Saturday night dinner.

Same schedule as last year. We hope to see everyone from last year plus a lot more.

Check out our web site and click on the photo of the camp cooking set. I have them for sale and will be bringing a few to all the Rallies.

Let us know when and what site you are on at Ripplin Waters RV campgrounds.
Your Hosts Jim & Regina

PS It is Halloween time so come prepared to show us your decorations.

I guess I was on drugs or something when I wrote the post last night. Try this one.

Hi Sarge,

You can tour the museum 7 days a week. Bush's bean are not open on Sundays. Saturday you can take the grand kids there and still be back in time for our pot luck diner that night. The tour is self guided so you can spend as much time there as you want. The Cafe is attached to the building. It is about 6 or 7 miles from the campground. I have the tour for Friday cause most rallies I've attended, a lot of folks get there the day before. We like to do that so we are not in the hassle of trying to set up with everyone else.

Another reason is we eat late on Saturday morning and then have open house. If most are agreeable we could eat earlier and not have the open house tour. This rally is for everyone so everyone has a say in it. We can change things for next year.

I'll post this on the Air Stream forum.

Hope to see and meet you Sarge and the grand kids.

Help,
Does anyone know where I can get a new in dash blower motor for a 1987 Air Stream 345?
Mine is no good. Jackson center said that ARA is out of business. So I need a cross reference for this motor.

James you might try to contact TrailerWorks at http://trailerworks.biz, they refurb Airstreams, says they have parts and can locate parts, they may be of help.
