Canopener Update

I am finally getting over the shocking change from sunny Cozumel to the frozen tundra of NW FL, and being humbled by his highness "Montezuma." But, today we have beautiful sunny skies here in NW FL, and although still a bit brisk outside at 47 degrees, the Airstream is a cozy 64 degrees inside with no supplemental heat. It was enough encouragement to work on some Canopener stuff:

I spoke with "Madame Ranger in charge" at Topsail and gave her our prelimary numbers for the Saturday breakfast. But, my real intention was to sweet talk her into releasing any "hold back" sites in the 100 loop for Canopener. Without going into the gory details, I can only say that I wasn't successful. However, for those of you who have sites outside of the 100 loop, and want to change.......please check availability upon arrival......they may be able to accomodate.....maybe not. That's the best I could do!

In the military we have a saying that "10% never get the word." So, in an effort to reduce that percentage, here is a link to the schedule of events that you can print: Canopener Schedule - 2011 Schedule of Events Photo Gallery

The map has been updated with the latest info that I have. If you notice any changes that are needed, please PM me: Canopener 2011 Map - Photo Gallery

As always, any (helpful) suggestions are appreciated.

Chief

Hi there in Hobart,
Can you spare a son or two up here in Traverse City? We are digging out of 37 inches of snow, and it's still snowing today, Dec. 14. We're trying to get on the road by Friday! See you at Topsail....maybe?

Mercy, At the Lake! We thought we were escaping bitter winter from here in mid Missouri with our 2 " snow, high winds, and 3-4' drifts. Makes TopSail sound like heaven. But if you are digging out of 35+ inches of snow in Traverse City, you need the escape even more than we do. Be safe on the winter roads, and we'll look forward to meeting you in Florida at the Can Opener ~G

Some of you from 2010 Canopeners may remember Rae (Rachel Rae Chamberlain) who had bought a vintage Airstream which needed a lot of renovation and came to learn and associate. She camped in her truck, braving the cold.

We became Facebook friends and I asked her the other day for some news to report to the group. Here's what she provided...

"I wish I was going. But I wanted to do it With an Airstream.... I have officially registered and titled my AS. I just can't get it out of where it is. I paid to have the frame checked and welded, and the wheels checked and repacked and new tires and rims, but that never happened. Now I am having a heck of a time finding a flatbed to tow it with. I haven't found a transporter who can do it either. So frustrating.

It's a 26' 1956/57 Overlander. Original. Needs a total restoration. I just need to get it to my shop so I can start doing something... As it is, it sits and sits and waits "

Raffle Instructions

I wanted to let everyone know how the Raffle works:

1. Bring a gift. i.e.-something for a camper, dish towels, wine, cards, games, etc.

2. Wrap the gift as simple as possible. I suggest gift bags.

3. There will be a table to put your gift on and at that time you will be given a ticket to put your name on. The ticket then goes into a basket and we will choose a gift off the table, draw a ticket and call the name on the back of the ticket.

4. Remember you do not have to participate in the raffle. It is totally optional.

I hope this answers all your questions. Please let me know if you have anymore questions and I will be glad to answer them.

See you soon,
Rene

Chief, we are not on your latest AS loop map, but we are coming, loop 101, site #49. Are we the only attendees of Can Opener '11 who are off-loop? We're unhappy about that, but thrilled that last minute events allow us to attend for the first time since the First Annual Can Opener rally. Thanks for making sure that we are counted among the 2011 Can Openers. ~Georgia

Hope you all have a warm and wonderful time this year. We are on "baby watch" for grandbaby number 8 (our youngest daughter's first) so we won't be traveling in Jan. Hope to make it the following year 2012!

Have to cancel

We had to cancel our reservation, our grandson will be returning from Ohio about then and we have to get him in Kentucky and bring back to Arkansas. Our site was 141, so it is now available for someone else to use. Maybe next year??
