Did someone say fly fishing? I love fly fishing! I was tempted in Yellowstone. It was quite cold. There were a few sturdy souls standing in the water! I hope they had long johns on.

I haven't ruled out doing other local events if I can work them in too, especially that spring maintenance rally.

So, Yuki, are you up for a women's rally in May? How 'bout Myboyburt? A caravan maybe?

-Jamie
I would love to try. I have *never* towed our Airstream on a public road or highway. I have "people" for that (meaning Leon). I need to work on hitching up the camper to the truck (c**p, we own a Hensley), towing and backing up into campsites.

I remember the very first time I saw Yuki (had not met). It was at the 2004 Region 1 Rally. Being very generous souls she and her husband had towed both their vintage and newer Airstreams to the rally so that a long time, retired from trailering NEU couple could attend by staying in their 2002 Bambi. Her hubby had gotten there first and was taking us around, introducing us to NEU members. He said to us "oh, Nancy is arriving" and then I see Yuki coming in: BIG, extended cab truck pulling a 19' camper. The parking crew were on bikes leading the way with kids all over the campground roads and rigs packed in tight. She got to her assigned space and backed that rig up, into the slot and hit the "marker" for hitch placement in one try.

Some day I will do the same. Thanks for the inspiration Yuki.

The maintenance rally is open to anyone who comes with an Airstream. The rally field (with w/e hookups) holds between 40 - 50 rigs so there is plenty of room for everyone. Michelle and I will keep everyone posted once we iron out all the details but I can share a few details in advance.

We are planning a Saturday night auction of items rally attendees would like to donate. Over59 has graciously agreed to be the auctioneer so it should be a blast. We plan on donating the auction proceeds to a local RI charity. There will also be a flamingo decorating event where everyone decorates their flamingos. First prize will be a copy of Don Featherstone's "The Original Pink Flamingos" book. And don't worry if you don't have any flamingos to decorate because each rig that attends the rally will receive a set of signed Don Featherstone flamingos! There's plenty of time to start planning how you will decorate your flamingos!

Naked flamingos will be frowned upon.

We have a local all women trailer camping group called "B*tches with Hitches". All are women who tow trailers...truly independent women with a funny name!

How would I get in touch with that group?

They sound like they might be fun and I'm local!

Thanks,
Laurel

My flamingos will not be naked, just nearly naked. I'm going to add bow-ties to each one and call them the Chippendale Dancers...... Truly a woman's rally decoration.

Lurking? No need to to lurk, just come on in. We're all friends here. Welcome aboard Yuki & Myboyburt!

Oh, be still my beating heart! Another gal who wants to learn to fly-fish, and right here in my neighborhood! Maybe we can find a place in Maine for a lady's fly-fishing weekend. I hear it's a good place for it. Anyone else up for fly-fishing in Maine sometime?

I should probably fess up that it was actually Leon who helped make my first solo trip a success by backing my Bambi into my rally site next to a big tree at Aluminations. And he was kind of enough to tell me "Hey, it was nothin' you couldn't have done yourself. I was just bein' a neighbor." Just the right words for a gal who's tryin'. Thanks, Leon! Next time I'll give it a go myself. gulp!

Oh, I wasn't talking about "cooking" in the true definition of the word (In hindsight, I should have put that word in quotes). What I meant with that statement was I was just waiting to see what your final plans will be.

Count me in - I would gladly trade my hardly used snowmobile gear (SkiDoo) in for the flyfishing gear So who is gonna teach us I'm thinking that someones "Hubby" is going to get special privilage to break our camp for a session or two

"Sisters on the Fly" are my idles....but I don't think I would go that far as to paint the airstream - yikes....

I will volunteer my hubby! I think he has what it takes:
  1. Patience
  2. Skill in fly fishing
  3. Patience
  4. Love of the sport
  5. Patience
  6. Is a good teacher
  7. Patience
Did I say yet that he has patience?!

Seriously, he is the best "teacher" I have ever met when it comes to breaking down a skill into teachable parts. He has the patience too to repeat steps if necessary for those of us who don't catch on right away. And, of course, there is the part that he will do just about *anything* to get me involved in one of his favorite pastimes.

Smile Flyfishing sounds good to me too!!

I'm a beginner too, can't wait to practice. One of my 7th graders gave me a last day of school gift of a box of hand tied flies--he and his dad made them. I was so touched--gotta use those flies!!

Brian enjoys tying flies too and does that during the winter months. I know he would be happy to teach fly tying too if there is any interest. I think it is a beautiful (and useful) artform and, now that I have seen what goes into tying a fly, I now really appreciate the finished product!
