Smile For the record

As far as WBCCI rallies go, no one in the club is forced to attend. If the fact that I no longer own an AS but have been welcome here is I problem, I can go away. Interesting that the biggest complainer to my comment was the biggest complainer about Falluminum. Me thinks I no longer need to deal with the few on this forum who think they can intimidate. Jim
For the benefit of my Canopener friends, who did not attend Falluminum, I'd like to set the record straight because there seems to have been a misinterpretation of my remarks in post #400 of the Falluminum 2014 thread. The post begins , "Thanks to Alan and everyone involved for making this rally a great event." Hardly a complaint about the rally.

In that post I went on to describe an unfortunate situation we experienced when the campground allowed a large 5th wheel trailer to block egress from our campsite resulting in a two hour delay in our Sunday morning departure. Neither security, the campground manager, nor the owner of the offending 5th wheel would take any action so we could tow our rig out of our campsite. Furthermore the manager rudely hung up the telephone on my wife when she called Monday during business hours to express our disappointment. Yes I did describe an unacceptable experience with the campground in my post. No, I did not complain about Falluminum.

I want to make sure our Airstream friends know Susan and I enjoyed the Falluminum rally and greatly appreciate the work of Alan and the other volunteer organizers.

The bottomline is we must be doing something right because more and more people come to the Canopener each year. I think this is the largest AirForums rally in the United States.

Russ

Well said Howie, Chuck, and Russ,

As an example to the laid back atmosphere of Canopener, for the last 3 years a couple of dear friends of mine have attended Canopener by renting a cabin and sharing in the fellowship. They've never owned an RV, let alone an Airstream, but hope to one day be able to afford one. They don't follow the blog and they don't need nametags, but they enjoy the conversations and the open house, and contribute to the potluck because they just like sharing time with like minded people.

Jeff

As I mentioned in my post that the first pot luck was held outdoors and in the dark. I was standing with Steve, the originator of the Can Opener, as the line was coming to and end and asked his if he recognized those at the end of the line. He didn't. That set the tone of acceptance and I hope it never changes.

A reminder. Please supply a utensil with your contribution and a label if not self explanatory. Both will serve to move the line and insure those of us that are at the front of the line will not be held up when going for seconds.

just because you have problems is no reason for the rest of us to suffer.......

Seriously, being diabetic myself, I can understand. Hope you do join us for coffee and BS......

Yeah, I'll hang out, shoot the breeze, and watch you guys eat your fill.

But my goal is to one day be the world's oldest living diabetic, which means sometimes depriving myself in order to keep by glucose under control. Just in case they ever come up with a real cure, I want to live long enough to take advantage of it!

There is promising research in the use of stem cells extracted from bone marrow and injected into the pancreas. They've extracted human stem cells and injected them into diabetic mice, and lo and behold, the human stem cells made mouse pancreas cells! But even though over 50% of the diabetic mice were cured, a whopping 25% of the mice developed pancreatic cancer, which is too high a failure rate to proceed to human testing just yet. Though I think that if you use a person's own marrow stem cells, the chances of adverse reactions should be virtually nonexistent.

First time user of this forum. We made a reservation at Top Sail for lot #74 several months ago. We will be in our Airstream 345 motorhome. This will be our first Canopener. Fact finding mission! This will also be our first airstream event. We are looking forward to meeting you all! The "we" stands for me (Billy) and my wife (Karen).

if you use the word "Czar" one more time moving forward, I'm gonna hurl!!!!
I like "padrone" myself! For our group we could say, create a title, like Riveteer or something- fun with words.

I will be glad to help but I too am new so I guess that would be like a RA or riveteer apprenticr or "buck tail" (end of rivet)

See, like Protagonist says, a Czar is not a worker but we all know a Riveteer or basher is a real worker!

I am just starting to catch up with this thread and looking forward to meeting all you AVATARS out there in real life! This may have been done but for those of us new, tell us about how many pot lucks to plan for, and what other things that require packing for, etc. I don't want to be a moocher but rather an contributor. I gather there are three pot licks it looks like (thanks Howie).
