Rivettes in the news...

Woohoo!! I love it, janetb -- "from tire pressure to bruchetta toppings" -- what a great line. Conjures up all kinds of fun ideas.

And to Codybear, nice job as always on the newsletter editing.

Everyone needs to back up. I had to do it today and yesterday in "Gas" stations. They were too tight to pull through and there were no Truck stops on US 101 up north.

I cannot take credit for the photo. I only gathered them and posted them. I think the photo in question was taken by Evie.

Hi, I'm totally impressed with all of you ladies, backing into your spaces. As for Michelle, it's always good to have a mechanic in the crowd. And Babeebloos, let me hold an extra key for you. I think there must be a cure or modification to prevent this from happening. [getting locked out] And Cat, I think I better go on a diet, I would never fit through an Airstream window.

Such a great success story on your first Ladies Rally.

Extra keys

Someone mentioned that they wire tie a set of keys to the "frame" of their AS so if they lock themselves out. I think this is an excellent idea which is cheap and great insurance. Just get "good" quality ties and pick your spot well. Wish I could take credit for it however I can't it was in one of the forums I read.

Best,

Irish.

The problem was even with a spare key the lock would not open.
We had to break in to get the door open. Not good.

I am glad to hear there was a spare key as we have had the same problem at rallys before, but it sucks that the solution did not work!!

Hi, in that case, time for a new latch assembly. [Locks by its self and won't work with a key] Contact Airstream and latch manufacturer. "Not good."

Women's rallies

How many documented women's Airstream rallies have taken place over the years? Does anyone have an idea--or a research suggestion? When was the first?
