I just called and left a voicemail on the Nute's home phone. I said we all send our love and prayers for Jan, and hope she is getting better.

Shane took Friday off, so we might leave as early as Thursday evening. I am on vacation from Wed - Monday.
Love getting paid to go to rallies!

Hey Lucius,

Sorry you can't make it this time, but did you know we have a fall rally every year?

Keep it in mind when you map out your routes this fall!

Regina and I spent an enjoyable weekend camping at Sylamore Creek just north of Mountain View Arkansas this past weekend. I wanted to get all the bugs out of the trailer before the rally.

I drove through the worst rainstorm on Friday south of Harrison AR, the campground was in a pine forested area so lots of wet pine needles in the trailer.

We are planning on coming down Friday. I can't seem to remember but do I need to confirm reservations with the hosts? I CRS sometimes.

Looking forward to a nice weekend camping---

Today is April Fool's Day and our trailer is parked in our side yard, still hooked up to the Suburban. Last month in the real cold weather I had our S10 parked in the spot and you know how tires go down when it is really cold......

So this morning about 7 our neighbor on side called me up and said, "Jim, I'm looking out my den window at your Airstream and your back tire is flat." I told him that I'll check on it and that our S10 had gotten a flat sitting there, I guess I just air it up and drive the whole outfit to the tire shop. I'm not in the mood to change a trailer tire."

So I put my shoes on and went outside to look at the left rear tire (The trailer was backed in --facing north, I couldn't see the left side of the trailer.

As I rounded the rear of the trailer, I could see the tire wasn't flat... what the heck I thought then I saw he had stuck a post it on tire, "April Fool's"

I could see him looking out his window at me with a big thumbs up and a grin on his face! He got me good!.

He never buys a newspaper, just reads the neighbor's when they are done with it. Last year the neighbor brought over the paper like usual and put it on his picnic table under a rock. Jack got up and went outside and sat on his patio reading hte paper. He told me he read almost the whole paper before he realized it was a paper from November of last year! LOL!

Looking forward to the rally!

Hi gang,
We found a mobile RV tech who came to us and fixed our plumbing leak-fast and efficiently AND replaced the affected section with PEX. He is in Russellville and we got next day service. Both Crain and Moix in Conway were, as Sam said, backed up. Moix recommended the mobile RV guys, and so do we. The guy who came had 30 years experience working on RVs, including Airstreams. Compared to Crain, and all the other dealers, his charge was minimal, even with a $75 trip charge!
So, Lord willing and the creek don't rise, we'll be there!
Sam, we will head up to the Ozarks on Wednesday or Thursday - Sorry we can't tandem with you this time, but we're sure looking forward to seeing you there!
Can't wait to see all of you!
Ray & Carol

I spoke to Ray Nute a couple nights ago. He returned my call, and was very glad to hear that we are thinking about them. Jan is slowly recovering from two strokes, that occurred within two weeks after a botched surgery. She is paralyzed on her left side, and lost her vision on the left. She is alert, able to speak, watches Jeopardy and knows the answers. She is relearning to swallow, before she can return home. She already had one episode of aspiration pneumonia, and is mainly being fed by a gastric feeding tube. They sold their Airstream and truck, to buy a wheelchair accessible van. Please keep them in your prayers. It means so much to them to know we stand beside them as family.

I just hate that Jan and Ray are having such a hard time. Kathy, thanks for including all of us in your communication with them. I'm going to send a card if I can ever remember to mail the thing!


Are we still doing prizes? I see Brad has ponied up a beautiful watch.


Can't wait to see all of you.
P.S. Our previously pristine 1987 got hit by falling limbs during the ice storm this winter (just not a good winter in any way!) and has some dents on the rear that are going to necessitate a trip to Jackson Center for repair. Good thing we have insurance - two skins are damaged. So, we're the ones who look like someone took a hammer to our rear roof! (But it doesn't leak!)

For those looking to navigate to Paradise Valley, forget the address listed on the web site.

Just come to Roaring River State Park. We literally have to drive through campground 1 to enter Paradise Valley Park. Look for the single lane bridge and sign after driving by the Ranger Station at the pool.

The weather forecast looks great.

Please bring check or cash for the camping fees. As this is a membership park, they don't get much public business and have no process for using cards.


Travel safe!


Regards,

JD

Yes, all that have said yes on the RSVP page are in the count.

We have 20 trailers.

Regards,

JD
