Pismo coast village

Hi, Pismo Coast Village is a great place. We were there last month. [December 2008] Back in spaces are mostly large and easy to get into. [except for a few on the north edge]

Yay, the intrepid Julianne has joined us! Safe travels with your tribe, Julianne.

Towster, thanks for spreading the news. No "rally planning" thread for the NorCal crew, but I hope those many fabulous women are checking this thread...they are an amazing group, and all would be oh so welcome.

And Bob, thanks for posting those great pictures--they're the perfect enticement! Of course you know your lovely wife is an honorary Silver Sister, and it would be so nice to see her again.

For anyone who decides to sign on after tomorrow: Just call and tell them you want to be with the rally, and they'll do their best to make it happen.

Cheers,

Hi Martha! So glad you are joining us this year. Can't wait to check out your '65 Safari!

Janet, you ROCK. I think you should start up a side business as a rally event starter-upper; you made that seem so easy...

I will call to tie up my loose ends at the campground this weekend. I'm pondering adding Thursday to my dance card too. Any excuse to duck out of the "go-to-work-pick-kids-up-from-school-do-homework-make-dinner-do-laundry-tuck-kids-into-bed-collapse-exhausted-on-the-floor" routine and I'm all over it. Besides, I must continue conducting research to prove my Mom Away From Home theory; the longer I'm away, the more they will appreciate me .



Cheerios!

airdrmr~ I can arrive on Thursday if you want to get the party started early.

I was thinking of staying at the State Park in Santa Barbara for a couple days before the rally. Sounds like a nice place. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks Janet for making the reservations and getting us all set up.

Santa Barbara Camping

Julianne - I'd love to have some company on Thursday! But, you have to promise not to laugh while I'm trying to park my trailer - I'm still learning!

El Capitan State Beach is very nice. I'm a little ashamed to say I've actually never camped there, but we take the kids to the beach there sometimes. It's a very large campground, no hookups, and a short walk to the beach. It's about 20 minutes from Santa Barbara.

Another spot to consider, one with a few more amenities, is Ocean Mesa Campground. It's across Highway 101 from El Cap. It a newer campground, has full hook-ups, and awesome views. There is also a little store, great showers, a pool, and even live entertainment during the summer at the adjoining property El Capitan Canyon. I have a friend that works there, so we camp there pretty often. The bummer is that it's expensive.

I'll just throw this out too - we can provide on-street parking with power if you want to just pull up outside and camp for a night or two. It's not quite the "Santa Barbara Experience", but it's cheap!

I would never laugh! Maybe a giggle or two, kidding. We all have to learn. I had the experience of living in downtown Seattle and storing Lucy on the docks where the fish processing boats bring the catch back from Alaska and unload. I had to back down an alley full of boats and put her in at an angle, it was frustrating at times, my truck shows the scars of boat hitch or two coming a little too close. It just takes time and then its still not always successful on the first try. The thing is we're doing it! We rock!

I dreamed of staying at Ocean Mesa, my first choice. I thought I should be frugle and stay at State Park but even that is $44 a night. And why start being cheap now? Not in my character at all! Besides the dogs are not allowed on the beach at Carpinteria, what's that about?! This will be my first Santa Barbara experience I may as well do it right. Thanks for the input!

Silver Sister Satin Jackets

Hello Girly-Girls!

As usual, I am obsessing about silver. And, I'm so excited about our upcoming rally too. So that got me thinking about a conversation some of us had at last year's rally about making matching satin jackets for the sistas! We were talking about the old fashioned kind of jacket from the 50's, with a name stiched on it and a big patch on the back, and how fun it would be if we all had one for our next rally....

Well, I did some checking around and found a really neat embroidery company in Mo. They carry the satin jackets (pink satin jackets with black piping, or plain black satin jackets) and they specialize in the really neat old fashioned embroidery - which they do on vintage embroidery machines. How cool?!

I emailed them a sketch of a Silver Sisters logo that I designed and asked them for a quote to put it on the back of a satin jacket, along with chain stitching with the words "Silver Sisters" on the front. It would cost about $60 - 65.00 per jacket, depending on how many jackets we ordered.

I need an order of about 20 jackets to make it worth their while. The order would take about 2 weeks to complete, so if we were going to do this, I would need to place the order no later that February 10th or so.

Attaching pics of the two jacket choices, and a couple samples of their work. Anyone interested?
