I have to scrub the summer storage layer of black yuck off the trailer. Lori is starting on the inside. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Thumbs up 3 Days and Counting

Checked the 10 day weather for Pec. Beautiful weather this time out. Might even need shorts.
Fridge is on, the trailer is being loaded, foods being prepped and we’re excited to head out for a long weekend.
I’m planning to be at Seward Bluffs between Noon and 1:00 Thursday to check out the sites and warn the Campground Host.
Sue’s coming out early afternoon Thursday after work.

Safe travels. See everybody soon,
Tom

We will have a guest showing up on Saturday morning around 9-10. She picked up a 64 and wants to have it inspected. Tammy will be coming in from Galena and is looking forward to meeting us. Now be nice guys!! LOL I hope that we do not scare her away from the forums. From what she has told me it is in really good shape other than the PO put a window AC unit in the back window. She wants to put the window back in, but dose not have the original.

Fall Rally Recap

Another Fall Rally is over.

Pulling in on Thursday found a Grandmother with a pair of young children had parked in the middle of the open area. She was hoping to hold spots for the rest of the family. I was hoping to use that for a wagon wheel or ring arrangement.
No matter. We moved up the hill a bit into the trees and secured some wooded sites and some pull-throughs across the street. This worked out well as we had some late arrivals on Thursday night and the pull-throughs were just the ticket.

Some of our regulars couldn’t make this meet, but we had some 1st timers attend.
Eileen and Ed drove in from Iowa. Come to find out they are restoring a couple of 1950’s Airstreams back home.

Pat and Joe stopped in for an overnight stay with their newly refurbished 92. Everyone was blown away with the total interior refinishing work Pat did. An amazing job. The use of more contemporary textures and color made the inside sparkle.

Tammy brought in a 64 Overlander she just bought for Ted inspect. Aside from the PO hanging a window air unit out the back window the trailer’s in good condition and ready for a rehab. Thanks for rescuing this Vintage rig and letting everyone have a look.


Friday night the fondue pots came out and we filled up on deep fried bits of meat and cheese soaked bread. Kale made little cinnamon sugar bites for a desert snack.

Fall Rally Recap

The weather finally cooperated and we had a beautiful weekend with only a short spell of slight drizzle late Saturday afternoon.
With the miserable weather we’ve had the last few outings nothing could stop us from filling 3 tables full of finger foods. We sampled a wide array of tid-bits from sweet to savory.
The heavier rain held off until 9:30 causing everyone to scatter from the campfire. Personally I think you all were looking for an excuse to go lay down and digest after grazing on the table full of appetizers.

We're planning the Spring Rally for the 2nd or 3rd week on May. I’ll post when we get everything finalized.

Thanks to everyone for making this another great Fall Gathering. We hope to see you all again next year.

Tom and Sue

"Pat and Joe stopped in for an overnight stay with their newly refurbished 92." Actually it was Mary & Joe with their '91 remodel.
Thank you all for your hospitality and picking such a beautiful spot to get acquainted. Joe and I greatly enjoyed it. - Mary

We had a fun time, and really enjoyed meeting some new Airstream 'neighbors' to the east. Definitely concur on how nicely Mary and Joe's redo was done.
Hope to meet up with you all again!
