We're still planning on being there, even if we're the only ones. I hope others come out too. Sorry to miss ya Lou. Hope to see someone, but I understand the distance and the cost.

I am terribly sorry for the late notice. I have tried all that I can to find a replacement. This was to no avail.
We will be planning other rallies that may or may not be posted on the "forums". I will be sure to keep in touch with all of the summer rally attendees to keep them abreast of the developments.
Lorrie and I just got back from a fantastic week at the WBCCI Autumn Leaf Rally in Pennsylvania. That rally really got me psyched up to get out one more time before winterizing the Airstream. However, now Lorrie can't make it due to family commitements and with THE LOU now "out" (no offense meant to the other Lou) and with few comfirmed attendees, I think I'll probably (regrettably) end up passing on this Rally. Weather permitting, I think I need to use this weekend to find & fix the water leak we discovered last week during the Autumn Leaf Rally and (also regrettably) to winterize the trailer.

What a depressing time of year - when you realize that you have no more trips to take with your Airstream (or Argosy) this year.

It kinda makes me envious those WBCCI'ers that are just going to head south and keep right on using their Airstreams. Of course I don't want to wish years of my life away . . . maybe I just need to go get a lottery ticket.

dry camping

I think that if all of your systems are good...heating that is...you could probably do a few more weekends. We usually don't get any freezing weather until around Thanksgiving down this way. Larry and I are looking forward to a few more weekends in Ohio and Pennsylvania maybe.

We hope to make this weekend rally!! Maybe Lou P. and family would consider visiting us one evening at Ja-Do even if they can't come camping???

Fall rally

I thought we had better bring this back to the top. Larry and I are still going to try to make it. Hoping to see a couple of you at Ja-Do too. Sounds like a cool and perhaps rainy weekend, so I have packed a couple of extra quilts. Hopefully some of the beautiful Fall weather and tree color will join us there too. Today I made a batch of spicy chili to freeze and bring along for the trip. Gotta' go and dig out the marshmallow forks. We were hoping to share a marshmallow or two with Alexandra Patterson, but looks like we will be snacking alone.
Just a few days to go!! Hope you will join us!

Andy...

Why Professor , I am touched by this really cool tribute. sniff I was thinking, you're always so good at figuring things out, do you think you could come up with a way to get the skipper to stop whacking me!?





Brad and I just returned two days ago from a month trip around Lake Michigan and Lake Superior with a million chores to catch up on or we would be there now. We leave but again Thursday for Wisconsin for my son's wedding. But we will be wishing you all well and hoping to "hook-up" with you again real soon! Nanu-nanu! It's all about Lou!

Here is a little somthing I have been kicking around since the Otisville rally.

The tune is the Gilligans Island theme song, the words speak for themselves.


Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale

A tale of a camping trip
That started on the internet
And wound up being hip

The mate was a handy photo gal
Of the skipper we’re not sure
The trailers met in Otisville
For a three day tour, a three day tour




The weather was a bit unsure
The trailers were Airstream
We all unhooked and set up camp
And took in the scene, and took in the scene

The rally was a lot of fun the campers we’re all similes
With Argosy’s
And Airstreams too
A vintage one, with a car.
A Fu Fu Rig
Some small, some big
Here at Covenant Hills

So this is the tale of the forums folks
Who all first met online
Till Lou came up with a crazy plan
That was a real good time.

The photo gal and big Lou too
Had done their very best
To make the Metro Detroit thing
A rousing Success

With meals, and gifts and flamingos
And campfires at night
The wonderful internet date
Was one big delight

So if you get a chance my friends.
Be sure to join our crew
Just one more thing to keep in mind
Its all about LOU, Its all about LOU

Rally Report

Just a quick post to let everyone know that the impromptu Metro-Detroit Fall Rally was a complete success. A good time was had by all and one. We had a great time meeting and getting to know Lou and Larry, trying to get our furnace running(didn't work) and just hanging out and relaxing. Everyone who missed it missed it. Hope to see you next time. By the way, Lou makes pretty good chili.
The campground is pretty nice, but the sites are small, at least where we were. It would have been neat to come over the hill and see eight or ten Airstreams and Argosy's in the hollow, but it would have been tight. After telling Lou about the availability of wood, the campground ran out last weekend. They did set us up with a farmer down the road so we did have firewood.
Anyway, thank you Lou for setting this up and I hope we can get together next year, because if Larry and Lou are an example of folks on this board, I'd love to get to know some more of you, and Lou, I have to meet you.

Mini-impromptu rally

Harold is so right!! We did have a great time. The Hollow was small, but empty and we missed seeing all of you! It was a very quiet, beautiful place. We had a lovely full moon, wonderful stars and a great campfire!! Plus good companionship. Larry and Harold spent a little time trying to get the furnace working....fired a couple of times, but wouldn't stay on. Harold plans to tackle that this next week and clean out some more gunk. LeeAnn and I learned that we had much in common as we are both teachers and could talk about our experiences for hours!! However, the menfolk stuck at the campfire until 3 a.m. on Fri. night, while the women gave it up an hour or two earlier!! Time flies when you are having fun!!

Uh-oh!
I see you have been talking with Larry and Lou a little too much, Harold!
I have heard that you either love me or hate me!
I really wish I could have made it. If it is any consolation, I had no fun this past weekend. I was in Nashville trying to kick off my own automation training consulting business. I have found that I do not like golf!
I will be planning a rally for the spring. I will be posting it on a blog and on my soon-to-be opening web-site. Look for details in your email.

I got to hear all about the "marshmallow deal" from Alex. I had to light a fire in the fire pit in the backyard on Sunday evening. She gave me the guilt trip thing and I had to do marshmallows then.
She did mention that it was not the same as "rally marshmallows"!
