So the weather report is calling for rain all weekend. If that proves true, will the "Fest" still go on?

It's going to be our maiden voyage after all (no time to practice), and the threat of it being rained out-- well it bites!!

Relax,
We have the rain covered!! Living in the NW.....our group has all the accoutrements to keep the rally attendees from getting wet (and cold)! We'll have Easy-up covers with sides and Firedancers to keep us warm! It can get cozy with a small group.....but that's what camping is all about! We don't retire to our trailers after dinner......we party.........including visiting, telling stories, jamming with our guitars, getting to know each other, telling jokes, touring trailers, and generally having a good time! So don't become dismayed by the weather forecast. BTW.....there is a Seafood and Winefest going on nearby (about a mile away) and some folks attend and some do not....it's up to you.....of course it's all indoors...so weather's not a factor! The CG is great and we're all together in the same loop, so it' s like one big family reunion. It was supposed to rain last year....and we had lots of sunshine......so don't be dismayed by the weather forecast!
Did I mention we have a raincoat for our dog "Gigi" now!

Merlot makes everything better and if you don't "do" merlot that's OK too. There are lots of indoor activites in newport to keep you occupied. The aquarium is great!

Does anyone have an lcd projector? We could do a rainy night movie on the side flap of an easy up. I've got white sides and a laptop.... and a copy of the long, long, long trailer.

Rally on ~ rain or shine!

The rally will be there rain or shine!

The first year we went to Beverly Beach Rally (just up the road a bit...) our Airstream was in pieces, so we took our little teardrop trailer. It rained a lot... but with tarps, our easyup, etc. we did fine... this is a great group to get together with! So, bring the goulashes (did I spell that right?) and raincoat and wine glass!

Gettin' closer! We will either be there Thursday late or Friday (hopefully) by noon. Depends on what time we get to leave here on Thursday. We finally ordered a vintage type awning for Bambi and it arrives on Thursday! So, we will look for the brown delivery truck and then head out!

If we didn't camp in the rain, we'd never go camping!

Can't wait to see Gigi's new coat (does it match her bling-bling collar)! And The Tardis's new awning!

I wish I had access to an LCD, movie night is a great idea!

See y'all there!

This is great encouragement! It sounds like a hardy group!

About our 'fear' of rain... 'tis not the water per-se, but the cooped up kids! (Like a jabberwocky 8 y/o and a 2 y/o broken record,"Owwwwwwt!!") With options to get out of the trailer (and away from the racket) it sounds like a go!

Now if I can keep the rest of my clan from getting sick!! My daughter has just come down with the dreaded fever that's running around our group of friends! Ugggh. She'll recover in time... but the rest of us?? Keeping my fingers crossed!

Stef, I like you picture a day idea. What's that old saying? A picture is worth a thousand words.
Thanks Don

If they get squirelly - take them to town. there are movie theatre, bowling alleys, ice cream parlors and lots of other good kind thing to do.

Many of us become tourists during daylight hours - it's one of the big draws of this area. the campground is likely to empty out during the day and as we don't have any organized activities except a saturday Pm pot luck, you should count on needing to fill some time up for the kids (although if the weather is good - they may just entertain themselves....)

OK, so I am desperately trying to get this rig ready to roll... my daughter keeps trying to pack her clothes into the trailer- and well, I'm just not going to finish everything...

Does anyone, who's attending the rally, have a rivet shaver? And if so, would you be willing to let me try it, so see if I really want to spend the $$$ on one? I have about 45 rivets to beautify around my water heater. I have used my faux-Dremel thus far (on other areas), but with that many... the risk of an oopsie is way magnified !!!

Thanks (way in advance)!!

sequoiacoast, I'll bring a inexpensive Drumell tool. The rivets can be finished with this tool very easly.

Getting ready

Hi all, I am getting the Airstream ready today. I am amazed that I even have the spare time.

My Father passed away February 16th. I has been a very hard time around here. I am the one (oldest son) who took the reigns and made all the arrangements, kept track of everyones wishes etc. The service is tomorrow and barring any unforseen circumstances, I will be there sometime Thursday.

Life goes on and the best way to honor his memory is to live my life and remember him often.

I am really looking forward to having some time to relax.

So far as I can tell the menu for Sat. night is :

Pot Roast
Lasagna
Pie
Ceasar Salad

feel free to add to the list

Milk Bones ??? Greenies ???? I'll pass on those.

I am shopping in Newport and I am bringing a small BBQ if anyone needs to use it just ask.

Thats about it right now.

Any questions, just ask !

We could bring our heart-stopping cheesy potatoes to go with all that meat, if you like

Sorry to hear about your Dad, Chris. That's tough. I think a rally is just what you need...
