We just aren't able to get Collin and everything together by then, but we will be over there hopefully by 745 to 800.

WOW! What an evening with Airstreamers & Kindred Folks. Too much good food as always & I hope the new Airstreamers attending their first rally will come back for many more. Good time was had by all!

PS We missed all you "old timers" who had conflicts. It has been a great weekend of camping.

Yes great food!!! Everyone was missed bit it was nice to meet faces.


Some asked for the recipe for the "sausage stars" so here you

Sausage Stars

1 lb sausage I use spicy
2 1/2 cups shredded Monterrey jack/cheddar cheese
1cup prepared ranch dressing out of the bottle
1 small can black olives chopped or sliced, drained. (I did not have these in mine because I do not like olives)
Red pepper flakes to taste (note once it cools off it is hotter)
1 package I. Wonton wrappers, small in the tofu section of the grocery store

Press wontons in a muffin tin and cook for 5 minted at 350 degrees. Take out of tin and set aside. Brown sausage and drain fat. Combine sausage, cheese ranch, olives and red pepper flakes and stir well. Fill each wonton cup and then reheat for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. You can make the filling up to a day in advance then fill cups when you are ready to serve.

It's sounds like another fun Air Midwest rally, we missed being there but work sometimes gets in the way! We will be there in the Spring and look forward to seeing pictures of the rally. Safe travels to all of you

Let's see here...where do I begin.

I want to thank all of you folks who made it to the rally. We seemed to have as many first time rally attendees as the all-pro veteran attendees. Our total was 17 trailers which included our friends from San Antonio who showed up unannounced as a surprise to my family. They have a neat little "Quicksilver" by Livin Lite that they have attended three of our Texas Airstream events in. All aluminum...all good. I know these friends read our rally posts, so thank you my friends for giving us the best surprise we have had in years.



My next big thank you goes to forum member Macs. Macs brought an overhead projector, professional screen, and blu ray player so the kids could watch movies and the KC Royal fans could watch the World Series. After spending the entire evening not being able to receive signal from coax, Macs went out and brought back a Dish Network Tailgater satellite system. Macs also brought custom embroidered hats with the event's information on them, some inflatable alien Halloween decorations, and enough candy for the entire north and south campground's children.



Cool Hats!



Great A/V Set up thanks to Macs


Another big thanks to forum member Indy for bringing tools, supplies, and giving a workshop on the aluminum bird houses. It was great to see half the pavilion filled with people banging out faux rivet lines. It seems that this was a great idea Indy, and we all love the houses! To those of you who didn't get a chance to make one because you either forgot, were out and about away from camp, or didn't make the rally you don't need to worry as Indy and I will be working on a PDF instructable for the birdhouses.



Everyone having fun...nobody got cut!




Indy explaining how they were going to build the houses



Stevie showing off her work.

As it goes without saying, there was way more food than people that could eat it. I love that everyone seems to cook such amazing dishes at these events. Several dutch oven dishes made their appearance (BBQ Moose, Meatloaf, Dump Cake, Sweet Potato Pudding cake, etc). Many folks asked for recipes and Stephanie has obliged by posting one of hers already. For those with interest, Amy and I are moving forward with our plans for an Air-Midwest rally dish cookbook. It was something we wanted to do years ago before we moved to Texas, but never followed though. If you would like to submit a recipe and instructions for prep along with a couple pictures...we would love to include it. This is not strictly for folks who attended this rally, but to all folks who make great food at these rally events that people have asked you for the recipe. I for one would love loislane's salad recipe, Sams' dutch oven sweet potato dish, Zweihigh's sister's Banana Pudding (Doubt we get that one), Mac's Meatloaf, sgrahm's corn dip, 76sovereign's Pani Popo, and many more.


FOOOOOOOOOOD!


Pani Popo



Low Country Shrimp Boil


Stephanie's Dump Cake

With the park having it's annual Witchy Weekend events during the rally, several attendees took the time to decorate for Halloween or at least got festive. We didn't have too many kids Trick or Treating, but we had plenty of candy for them.



Isadora's Arg-oh-sea



Isadora's decoration area.




Loislane's trailer



How about these festive folks?



Schkube's Trailer



Zweihigh's Decorations

I think what pleased me more than anything were that the kids who were in attendance all had a great time. When we were leaving Collin told me he was really going to miss all the new kids he had met while at the rally. Then he started to yell down the hill that he was leaving and that he really hoped all the other kids would come to another camping event so he could see them again. Unfortunately I missed getting a picture of Schkube's little girl, but I know lots of you were taking pics and I hope she is in one of them. We're unfortunately missing two kids in this picture, but it turned out good anyhow.



What a happy bunch!


Finally we get to my pics of the trailers. I know, what took so long right? While we all love these trailers, it is truly the people and camaraderie that bring us to these events. I told many of you at the rally that we don't even camp outside of these rally events. Airstreaming is truly a social experience for us. I was happy to hear from another attendee that we are not alone in this practice.























At the end of the rally there were several of us discussing future rally events. The bird house project was insanely popular..almost everyone wanted to participate. There are many "craft" folks who attend these events and we proposed that on one of the upcoming rally events that we all set up craft stations and allow attendees to make and take their items. These would include kiln fired glass art, custom jewelry earrings and necklace pendants, leather key chains and bracelets, and other items too. If this sounds good to you, please let me know as I am keeping notes for this future event.

Thanks again to everyone for making this a great event. We are so happy to be back in Missouri and back with Air-Midwest. The following are links for the facebook pages for Air-Midwest Airstream Rallies and the Airstream Adventures pages I was referring to.

Steve
