I got the chicken at the DAV store. It's a fact that I do most of my shopping nowadays at the DAV, the Goodwill, the Salvation Army and the Blind store. Regina often says that my wardrobe reflects that fact.

I have a steadfast rule, whenever I see a chicken, a clown suit or a wig I buy it because I may eventually have a use for these items, for instance, link of here for an example of a fun filled day on the back porch. Off Beat: Bad Hair Day

And of course, there's the ostrich suit I made a great bargain on (burns batteries like they are fourth of July sparklers but it is worth every penny:
busplunge: It's Great To Be Eight

When we got home, we were greeted with the news baby Sophie caught the chicken pox from her older brother:
busplunge: Sophie's Got The Chicken Pox

Regina and I had a wonderful time at the rally and look forward to seeing that 1969 Sovereign next year!

Thank you all

Thank you all for posting pictures of the Branson Rally! Jack and I enjoyed looking at them. I hope to see more in the future.

Jacks total hip replacement went fantastic. He had the staples taken out Monday and will be able to take a shower tonight . . YEAH!

Looks like a good time was had by all. Hope to see you in the fall or at some other rally in the future.

Kani

Ps. We had to put our remodel on hold because of Jacks pain (I don't mean me) and then surgery. We now have a gutted AS which is of no use to anyone. I wish now we had waited to start it but one never knows what life brings.

What a great way to meet new friends and re-aquaint with others.

Thanks,
Dan and Marty
Thanks to everyone for making our first Airstream rally experience a fun and memorable time. We look forward to seeing folks again in June at Moraine View and in October in Branson. Soldiermedic and family -- and Alumatube -- special thanks for the organization and communication. And, special thanks to Ron and Stella for gathering all the firewood for our impromptu fireside chat on Sunday evening.

Happy travels to all,

osolow, Steve usually starts a new thread up a couple months in advance of the rally, but he will provide the link here in this thread.

I love your avatar picture! Congrats again! Your pork tenderloin was AMAZING.

Sounds like that weekend of October 10th, 11th, and 12th (right before the Monday Columbus Day holiday) would be the pick if you were interested in this location. That would flat out put you at the same approximate time frame of last fall's rally. This is probably one of the best weekends down there.

I will be at Fort Bragg by then en route to Afghanistan. You all may just have to rally without me for the next fall and spring.

I have no idea Suz. We are supposed to report for home station annual training in September. I don't even know if I will have all my repairs done by then. I don't want this trailer sitting uncovered for a year or more while I am gone in its' current state. Too many things could happen to it, or damage it further.

I would be more than happy to have the rally sometime in September if it gets you, Amy and Collin there! I understand we would have to miss you in the spring, but if you can squeeze the fall in, that would be a great send-off!

Susan

PS - Can you get one of those metal carports for it?

Amy plans to rent the house out while I am gone and we can't keep the trailer here while it is rented out. We haven't come to a decision about what to do about anything yet. Due to OPSEC I cannot post anything concrete on dates, but I will post what I can when I can.

Well, we have a few months yet, so let's see how things work out in that time frame.

You can probably rent a covered spot at a boat storage or other yard while you are gone. They have quite a few around here, so hopefully they would be readily available and reasonably priced up there.
