airstream camp

Normally my wife and I bring our Airstream and camp with our kids and friends in our own camp. This year we are the only ones who bought tickets. How do we go about joining the airstream camp. We have a 25'. Who lays out the camp. Is there room for us? etc..

Welcome DeepFringe! We're probably about the most difficult camp to join, our dues are an astonishing $0, we require newbies to know more about the Survival Guide than we do, and you must have fun. No sour faces allowed. Contact our Chief Wrangler Zeppelinium, he can tell you more. We never know exactly where we'll be until we arrive, usually on 3:00 WTFoutthere unless the placer gods think we deserve to come in a few streets. When we get an ink lingling where we'll post on here, but that won't be until like July or August.

We will have to whip you into shape, as we don't normally accept any version of the word "normal." The good news is, we still have some room and kids are OK, too, as long as they keep their traps shut about how boring old people are.

Once we get a full roster (around the middle of June), I'll start considering special requests. The camp layout can change in real time, however, eg, we get a corner vs. the middle of a block. The camp is laid out to consider wind, pump truck access, and maintaining a level of openness to the street (we don't circle the wagons and wall off our interior).

The Gynecologists are Confirmed!

The Gyno's (Kelli and Gail) have tix, as do our kids (Conlin, M, 22yo and Madeline, F, 21yo, both Burgins), AND sister Jill with hubby Bruno.
The four of us oldsters will join in the Airstreamerii fun, with our little Bambi plus tents. The kids will be a presence, at least, but are threatening to set up camp elsewhere. We will see.
Count us in for a Gyno talk, help at the postcard station, postcard supplies and stamps, and driving shifts (Kelli).
I am scheming on a gifting idea I may or may not pull off, daVinci inspired. Bruno, being an artist and Italian, really should feature in it all somewhere, right?
Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new friends, too.
Gail

I am really sorry that the Gyno's have tix. What with Lyme disease and all, they are not welcome! They can be a real problem when walking in high grass. I have a jim-dandy tix remover though, and would be happy to bring it in case the tix haven't dropped off by then. Just put it over the little suckers head and pull - out he comes!

This is going to be a fantastic camp!

We'll do a final head count in June. We've always been able to fit everyone in. Six years ago it got a little bit tight, we even had to ask some of the "girls" to back their Airstreams. Great entertainment for all. But now we are a well-trained and ready team. You will enjoy the group--we don't have many shrinking violets.

Welcome home Trainwreck! Fill out the volunteer sheet in your Burner Profile, you'll be inundated with all kinds of outfits needing your body. Airport can be fun. I do DMV. Artsy folks can try the Arterie . I'm sure Gate and Exodus need lots of bodies.

I'm trying to put a list together and prioritize things I need to work on during the next several months so that when my guests arrive, we'll be ready to hit the road.

Several maintenance items that the Silver Olive needs: fix door latch so that you can actually exit the trailer (vs climbing out the rear window); dewinterize; check water pump and stove; install new 3-way refer; etc....

And things specifically for the event: find add'l blue boy/5 gal canisters; get bikes from craigslist/goodwill and tune-up; get camp chairs; ; large cheap-o rug; etc.

Does Airstreameri have a camp shade structure? Or should I plan to build one? I've been reading eplaya and have a handle how to build it - but damn - it's an investment!

Do you still do the post card depot? And can/should we bring supplies to donate to it?

And what about generators? I have a fairly large Honda - and can build a baffle box to help with noise. Is using one during the afternoon frowned upon in Airstreameri?

These are just a few things that I've been thinking about....

Laura
