Nice Rally

Fun, Food, Fellowship, Open House, Entertainment......that doesn't even come close to describing what those that attended the Can Opener 2011 experienced.

Hope everyone made it home safely with the threatening weather approaching. I made it almost all the way home without any issues...until a LARGE HAWK decided to come out of nowhere and tried to hitch a ride in my Airstream. Not sure why it was flying so low crossing the interstate, but I hate to see any large birds and animals lose their lives from vehicles. The damage to the camper can be fixed..I wanted to put a rock guard on, but was waiting for warmer weather....we were fortunate that he didn't come into the drivers side window....might have turned out differently.

About 6" of snow landed during the night, with more expected today.


Anyone not making it to this Rally, sure missed out!! I can't hardly wait for next years!!

Happy travels/camping
Levon

Started our journey back to Texas this morning...so far no rain. Just wanted to say Kudos to you all who put together this great event. Craig & I had a great time. Met alot of fun people, ate alot of great food and had alot of fun. That's the reason we got an airstream.

Getting lonely here. We're still at Topsail watching everyone leave. Glad to hear of the safe travels from those who left.

It rained most of the night here. 35 degrees on the thermometer this morning. We'll hold down the fort until Wednesday then depart for home.

Good morning y'all,
Thanks for a wonderful weekend at Topsail! The food, the drink, the fellowship was wonderful.
We can't say enough about the Bloody Marys, the Margaritas, and of course the bourbon tasting.....
Jacquie and I will be back new year, hopefully in Lot #152.....
If any of you are coming through Elberta, Alabama, give us a call.....
Larry and Jacque

Yard Work

Allen,
Yes, Currently there are 7 Airstreams in the yard... (2) 66 Safari's, (1) 65 Tradewind, (1) 85 Sovereign, (2) Bambi's, (1) Excella II, and
(1) Silverstreak.....enough WORK to keep me busy, as soon as the weather breaks. I was hoping for enough snow to just cover up everything and not have to think about all the work...ha.

The Booger found a new home in Tenn. New owner just had to have her. She will be well taken care of.

Good to hear from you.

Early arrival party Thursday night at Lucky Ducks

Not to be confused with early workers by any stretch of the imagination!
We had a great weekend.

AWESOME! As one of the newest Airstream owners and this my first Airstream event, I have nothing but praise and admiration for all of you forum legends that were so eager to share your experiences with the newbies. I will be there next year with my '78 31' Sovereign, in whatever shape it will be by then. Here are some "before" pix to show you what I have to start with...

We bugged out this morning, not knowing where we would stop for the night since there was snow and ice between us and home. We managed to make it all the way without any problems, and it only took an extra 2 hours, not bad.

Can't say enough good things about this rally and the people. We had a wonderful time and really hated to go. BUT, some of us still work.

Safe travels
