I don't know about you guys and gals but with the daily hail storms, rotating thunderstorms, tornado warnings, flood warnings, and stay off the street warnings, I'm beginning to wonder if the sun will ever shine again in good old St. Lou...or if we can go 24 hours without any other calamity from the sky. I need June 11th to be here...tomorrow.

Jack

Tell me about it

This is what I came home to Tuesday. This is taken from the end of the street, which as you know Jack is only a short distance from my house. The close up is down the street, the cars were washed up on the curb.

Crazy.

My office reeks of molding water....

Shades of 1993! I hope this weather pattern changes soon and doesn't become another one of those 100 to 500 year events. Aren't they supposed to be hundreds of years apart??! We are having too many of those. Guess Mother Nature doesn't listen to the weather men. Sorry, Ron-hope you all stayed dry. Is the branch on your patio? I'm cringing everytime I hear the rain start and the wind whip up-afraid for our AS out under a tree-only place we have to park her!

...I guess you could pull the AS up on blocks to get it above the water -- but you certainly want the AS on concrete...

We have avoided most of it here in Dayton, but it is very dark right now...

Thumbs up

Hi, all!

Does anyone know if I could tent-camp at the rally, if I chose to?
Or if I just drop by, when would I want to do that? Which day?

Anyone want to see a shell off?
Or....help put one back on?

Refer to my thread here.... http://www.airforums.com/forum...252#post100252

I'd love to attend the rally with the trailer, but there's no way I'll have it back together by then!

Thanks!
-Chuck

Funchucky1... this is a come-as-you-are affair. You'll need to get a site reservation though, for whatever you choose to do (except dropping by for an afternoon of course...).

Look forward to seeing you there!

Roger

Jack... from the Moraine View website:

"Camping |
For longer stays, there are 137 Class A trailer campsites with water, electricity and a sanitary station. Sixty-one sites can now be reserved in Gander Bay campground."

So I presume that this means there is water available, but it's not at each site?

Funchucky

As it's been discussed in earlier posts on this thread, you could cover the tent in aluminum foil!!! OR bring the base of the Airstream, and pop the tent up top... you would be the talk of the rally!!!

I bet it would be a first!!!

Ron, did you say you'd be happy to help get my shell back on?
How nice of you!

I do like your idea. Might be the way to recruit assistants, too!

I'll work on the plan....well no, I have to go work on the frame...
