Happy Thanksgiving to you all too!

Nancy your Bambi is beautiful. Did you do your own curtains and upholstery? It looks so good with that CCD interior. (Which reminds me Donna I have not seen how you decorated your Bambi.)

Love the ranch sign, that's quite a ranch.

Enjoyed the nightshot and sunrise too.

Yes we better get on our "gifts" so we can have them in time for Xmas. Thanks Richard for those links.

Nancy -- Love the colors in your Bambi! That brown really, really looks nice with the orange of the CCD. It really warms it up. I'd love to do something fun like that for my Bambi. So much to do, so little time...

Carol -- still trying to figure out a way to get to Florida this winter. We're barely a week into winter weather in the northeast and the sunshine of the south is beckoning. I've got some scheming and planning to do...

Wishing all you ladies and your families a Happy Thanksgiving!

-Jamie

Sue, you asked about Gulf Shores. We vacation just across Mobile Bay at Dauphin Island. We think Dauphin I is less touristy than its cross-bay sister, but that's probably just because we happened upon it years ago so it seems "ours" now. DI was badly hurt by last year's hurricanes; I don't know if GS is still recovering or was just not as badly damaged. Carol, the Florida rally at Topsail sounds like a great January remedy. We'd like to find somewhere along the coast to go this winter but when I tried back during early summer, I could find no openings--but I was looking around Naples on down to the Keys. I'll check the rally listing to see how one makes reservations. So far I've scratched out! ~G

The panhandle isn't nearly as crowded as South Florida. Here's a link to reservations for topsail hill state park. If you could come that would be soooo cool, and maybe Jamie, still crossing my fingers.

Ready for emergency liposuction!

It was the second piece of pumpkin pie that did it! Hope you all had a nice day with your families and friends. We're having a beautiful weekend down here in Texas; high temp today 76. Perfect for a little outing in the AS. I'm sure not going shopping!!!

Carol, my sister in law sewed the curtains, and I helped....yeah, right!! No seriously, we removed the curtain liners that have the tabs for the track sewn on them, and just sewed them back on the new fabric. It was pretty easy. I had the dinette cushions reupholstered professionally as well as the bedspread and the decorative pillows on the bed. The bolsters on the bed are covered in a faux-fur fabric named "Bambi"-- couldn't resist that! The flooring is made by Chilewich and actually has aluminum threads woven into the tiny basketweave pattern. It has a subtle metallic effect on the floor which looks so cool with the aluminum interior. I'm really proud of the way it turned out. Thanks, too, Jamie. I wanted to warm up the interior. As you know the original color scheme in the CCD was very cool colors---black, gray, and turquoise. It just didn't do it for me with the orange cabinet interiors. I thought playing up the hot orange and tempering it with the tobacco brown dinette cushions would be really pretty.

Well, I'm going to hit the road. Got fences to mend at the ranch! A woman's work is never done!!

Happy long weekend,

Nancy

BTW---Sis in law and I worked out the design for the tote yesterday; it's going to be really cool.

Hey Trailer Sisters,

I LoVe this thread, so I'm jumping in like a game of double dutch.
It's been great to read about you and how supportive and funny y'all are.

Looking for another member? Do you have any rallies? More info. pretty please...

Nice to meet everyone. I feel at home on this thread!

Kristiana -- Thanks for joining us here.

While we're working out the whos, whats, and wheres of the rally plans, this has become a great thread to discuss anything of interest to Airstream towing women. If there's anyone else out there lurking who would like to join us, please do!

-J

Welcome!

Glad to have you join us, Kristiana----love your homepage; your designs are great! We have alot of very creative women in our group. When we finally get our rally together, we will be a force to be reckoned with. I'm a fellow designer; I design and import handknotted rugs from Nepal and also am a Texas reg. Interior Designer. Hope you'll stay active in the thread; we have big plans for the Spring, and our friend Carol (wheel interested) in Michigan is trying to get a January rally going in Florida.

Best regards,

Nancy

Hi Kristiana, welcome. Yes, the women here are ever so interesting. Hopefully we'll be getting a chance to meet here or there if not at a giant rally, but wouldn't that be something. I agree with Jamie, just because we aren't on the road doesn't stop us from meeting here, glad you found your way. I'm going to have to check out that home page of yours Nancy was talking about.

Devoman is hosting a rally in January in Florida, and the number of Airstreamers is just multiplying and muliplying. I'm planning on being a participant but I didn't do any work, just always up for a party! Here's the details. I know those of us in the cooler climates are starting to think it's a really good idea. They are going to have both kinds there though,----women and men. (or rivettes and rivette shavers)It's open to all forum members. Here's the thread
http://www.airforums.com/forum...y-27292-7.html
and here's the link to reservations and attendees list
http://www.airforums.com/forum...1-5;&e=276&c=1

or you can find info by going to the forums rally calendar.

Ahhhh, can we move Florida any closer to California?
Sounds like a fantastic rally!

Thanks for the warm welcome & compliments, I'm touched. Glad I found my way too.
I'd love for all of the women Airstreamers to design an Airstream together, starting with Nancy's rugs...

Good to be here. I'll think about Florida... I think I need a backup trailer parked in NY for East Coast rallies

Cheers.

Further back in the thread we were kicking around the idea of meeting in Branson Missouri in May as a central spot for West and East to meet but so far there were only three, two of us already only 3 hours apart in Michigan, so a long way to drive to see each other when we can camp together near home and do already. And Nancy wanted to be coming all the way East after that stop anyway, so it's just out there waiting for nibbles.

Kristiana,
You may want to take a look at these two rallies:
NorCal Winter Rally in 29 Palms
Four Corners Unit Rally

They are both much closer then the Can Opener.

Hi...another Californian here. I was just wondering if there were still any west coasters on this thread. I'd like to get a casual California rally going sometime soon. Any takers???

Gulf Shores (i don't know how to do the quotes)

Thanks Georgia for the reply about Daupin Is. vs Gulf Shores. I understand the Gulf State Park open and now has full hook-ups thanks to the post hurricane renewal. It doesn't get as warm as the more southerly FL locals you mentioned but it's very reasonable, w/mo. rates and would be a whole lot better than MI at that time. And we would have our friends there.

suz

ps welcome Kristiana !
