There are some towing guides out there that may help you in your effort. Trailer Life magazine puts one out every year. Here is a link to their online edtion...
http://www.trailerlife.com/output.cfm?ID=1073737

Ford Motor also has a towing guide that is geared toward Ford Trucks, but has a lot of useful general information at the back of the guide...

photo!

Thanks, Yukiona; I emailed the photo to Carol (wheel interested) this evening, so hopefully she can re-size it and I can post it. Carol, you are fabulous, girl and you certainly have not kept me hanging!!!! I've been so busy with work, that I can't watch the thread as closely as I have in the past few months. So bear with me! My computer skills are poor....down here in Texas we call it "all eat up with the dumb-a**"

the photo!

Okay girls, here it is.... the mystery photo. It's my home on the range until the Bambi's pad and electric hookup are ready. Very mystical place in the middle of old Comanche Indian settlements which are located on my ranch property. Hope you like it!

Nancy you are waaay cool! No one could have guessed this mystery photo. That must be some ranch. We may have to wagon train. Beautiful shot with the clear sky and moon.

Slowolf thanks for posting those links. I took a quick peek at the Ford one at the back and I already found some information I had not been aware of. I'm going to print out some pages for reference and review. The Trailer life link looks like there is plenty to look at.

BTW, ladies, I don't live in the teepee. I actually live in Dallas. In a house! Sometimes I really wish, though, that I could go live in the trailer or the teepee and get out of this crazy city!

Question Towing Manual

Oh,dear! Ummmm,....I didn't exactly intend, nor am I qualified, to author and publish a Towing Manual. I was thinking of something much simpler. Just some written instructions along with a few pictures - mainly so Cupcake & Captain Midnight (Carbon Metallic GMC) remain a couple as I motor down the road! You know, like "Hitches for itches". I may need one for the awning too. I think the arms need cleaning & lubing on the inside as they work kinda hard. Oh, and I can't forget the poop shoot. I've never used the oven. Does anyone know about the pilot? See what I mean? *note to self: Towing isn't going to be the problem!! What a mess I am.

*note to everyone: even some of our seasoned forums members go through a check list before pulling out, which is a good idea we've never, as yet, implemented.

OK, enough already!

Smile For your consideration A thought about manuals, rally gear, etc

Hi,
Just thinking about how many creative and great women with ideas there are in this thread! Take a bow sisters! The manual is a great idea, why not Suz? How about on a wiki page or something, I wonder if that's possible? Sister mods know if its doable?

Nancy be sure to tell everyone who painted that lovely tee pee, no need to be so modest!! I'm ordering a tote bag as well please.

About rally mementos... I was wondering about rally gear and how it would be possible to have fun mementos without a lot of work for the women who do it, or to even have it accessible online so that it could be easier yet. Does anyone have experience with cafePress.com ?Hereabouts, people have used it for fundraisers for schools, charities, you can even find the fleur de lis fundraiser for Louisiana there. I don't know all the details about it, just have heard that its a good way to get a logo or memento onto stuff ranging from mugs to tshirts. Clearly we wouldn't be fundraising-- just to have some cool stuff with 2007 Rivettes Doe Tow Rally on it, or whatever we will be calling ourselves (it is our prerogative to change our minds about our names at anytime )
Respectfully submitted

This is a great idea! I don't have any experience with cafepress, but it seems to have a good variety of printable stuff. I'd love to have a Rosie t-shirt with the "We can tow it!" logo. Or how about a "You tow, girl!" coffee mug?

Jamie, I want a mug that says you tow girl! Love it, and a shirt. Steph thanks for finding cafepress.

Anyone traveling this January? I signed up for the Florida forums rally at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park, Santa Rosa Florida in the panhandle. Michelle is signed up too. How about it ladies, can you go too? Although Suz may be onto something. Hawaii! C'mon shake that cabin fever. There are 23 Airstreams and growing. Still plenty of room for you.

http://www.floridastateparks.org/topsailhill/

It used to be a private RV resort before Florida bought it, it is tops in the nation, concrete pads, full hook-up, pull-throughs available, it has ocean front, dunes, pristine forest, biking, heated pool. Short drive to Panama City Beach, Seaside, shopping.

AND if you were waivering about going solo hubby can come! Nice winter get away don't you think? You can practice towing and hitching with your own support team right at your side. This trip I'll be solo.

tin sista - great idea about gift items. I have been looking for a gift for the Four Corners Unit Rally (shameless plug) and thought about printed magnets. I have seen people with a collection of these on their oven door. I found a place called VistaPrint on the web and they seem to be very reasonable. You don't have to order hundreds of item either.

Topsail

I looked at the pics of Topsail and I agree, it's a beautiful place. I was hopefull we might be able to swing by the rally on our way to AL until the Jan dates came out. I'd love to do some sno-birding there if FL state parks had monthly rates - if you were able to get a spot that is. We will most likely be heading to Gulf St. Park about the middle of Feb. through March for about 3 - 3 1/2 times less than most FL parks. Of course, you don't get those extra ammenities so we'll see how our first winter away experience goes. That's one reason we bought Cupcake in the first place - 4 yrs ago. One good thing - if you don't like where you are.... just leave and go elsewhere! BTW, is anyone familiar with Gulf Shores, AL? We have friends who've been going there for 10-15 yrs now.

Here's wishing everyone and their families a wonderful Thanksgiving. Gobble Gobble! (< oh, just pretend it's a turkey)
