Chris...

Are you going to have any restrictions on modified totes? Or is anything fair game! Will there be a class for modifieds? What kind of mods are acceptable? Bearings (see last post), larger wheels, motors, air lift - like a hovercraft, special lubes...?

Oh my, now look what I started . Well I was thinking just using one tote and do it by time. Then I realised that would take forever if there were a lot of people doing it.

So what I suggest is who ever wants to participate get their tote, bring it to the starting line and have one race.

100 yds or so ?
The tank must be full of water.
No modified totes
No classes
Just you and your full tote !
You can get sponsors if you want to .

What do ya think Janet ?

The Ocean is close by we could go tote surfing ?
How in the world would you do a three legged tote race ?

Marc, I like the white gas idea. CC would totally go for it.

Okay Chris,

What are the rules for those of us who are "seniors"???? Do we get a handicap? It might just take us a looooooooong while.... Anyone making a map route for the totes? How about water and muchies along the route? Our tote is pretty little... but still really heavy when full.... can we hook them to our trucks and drive the route?

Looking forward to seeing everyone! Went to the NorCal Rally ~ it was quite good. The Sheriff came... so at BB we have a lot to measure up to!

See you there!

I got sponsorship!

Marc .. aka "The Bomb(s)" just got sponsorship! Stand back boys, the "Better Grey than Black - Blue Thunder" just got big bucks from none other than Airstream of Spokane!

Press release:
"This tremendous deal with Airstream of Spokane is allowing us to fast track construction of the AoS windtunnel... Developement of the new Blue Thunder containment system is well underway." says Bomb(s).

- "I know the competition smells bad... we've got to be better... or sweeter."

Blue Thunder is getting ready to load on the transporter.

Are you ready? I can almost smell (pee yuuu!) the victory!
Marc

Well Cr p ! Now I guess you're going to to a test track and work out the kinks/bugs prior to race day.....

reminder: when testing full totes in wind tunnel - stand upwind of the test specimen. Thanks to AS of Spokane - cool folks.

Say,
Why don't ya'll do a blue tote luge, or whatever the facedown/headfirst version is? (Skeleton?) Any hills nearby? No pre-race training needed, old and young have equal chance, etc.

I can't be there but would love to see the photos

Upon reflection..

Then again, maybe they call it Skeleton for a reason....

Cool We have prizes.........

but not for the "TIRD RACE"("tote'ally interminable race duffs)!!........ Chris is supplying those. I have obtained about $200 worth of prizes from Sutton RV to give away after dinner Saturday night! With all the attending rallyers I will have someone(s) draw out of a hat 8-10 (depending on how many prizes to give away) numbers of the camping sites that we are occupying. Winners must be in attendance.........and remember which space they're in to claim their prize. Just remember which site you're staying in (easy on the merlot )........you could be the big winner!

NorCal B.......bring your guitar for the jam sessions.........and anyone else who plays an instrument........this is a talented musical group! Brad......you could bring your French horn!

I'm sure you'll all have your pumpkin carving tools at hand.......sawsall, router, jigsaw, and dremmel kit! I should be a fun competition! We'll think up some prizes for the kids!

The trailer is packed, the truck is stuffed and we're heading out in the AM.. (7 hour drive for us).

We were reading the nor cal rally thread and decided to take a close look at our trailer tires today.... end result - we got new ones. They were starting to show signs of age, checking etc.

Gary's been working on customizing the tote today... (Give a guy a day off work and just look at the trouble he can get into) and there is an embarrassing amount of propane loaded in the back of the truck! Best of all the weather looks acceptable (I guess that's all you can hope for on the OR coast)

See you at the beach!

Weather forecast for Newport

Looks like we'll luck out again this year!! The weather should be good for the rally........and I hope for the trip home for everyone!
Nights will be cool.....but better for campfires! And the days should be great for walks on the beach!

Newport, OR
<LI class=cf>Clear, 41
  • Wednesday

    59 / 42
  • Thursday

    60 / 42
  • Friday

    61 / 41
  • Saturday

    61 / 41
We're leaving tomorrow about 1pm.....and with just a short jaunt of 60 miles, we should pull into BB about 2pm. I feel guilty about such a short drive........but hey..........I'm not complaining......only Jim and Karen (Orexella), and Jonathan and Stephanie (Campcollector) have a shorter drive!
I hope to have time to visit with all of the rallyers this year......and learn a few things about Airstreaming! We've got most of the core group (from the first BB rally) attending.........and I'm excited that we'll have new folks in the NW we can develop friendships. Plus we have some of the best moderators and most active and most knowledgable folks on these forums attending!!
You can't beat that!

You know you have the worst case of aluminitis when you look forward to AS forums rallys more than family reunions........but we're really all family!!

Ready, Set. GO!

Topped off the propane in the A/S and in the BBQ tonight.

I'll be out with the A/S tomorrow afternoon, and will swing by the house on Friday to pickup the BBQ.

We won't be out to the site for the night until about 8 ... we are part of a CERT (Commmunity Emergency Response Team) currently in formation and training.
