Lightbulb Yard Sale Permits

Not to be a killjoy, we ALREADY are on the line with the Carmen Miranda drinking contest.. or what was that???? ..... but oftentimes places get in an uproar about appearances of flea markets .. in a State Park you probably need a permit.

I speak from experience; we own an antique shop in Rockford. Personally, I think it's a GREAT idea. I make an OK living off one man's junk.....

We should start a thread on here with a list of what anyone has for trade, or at the very least, start adding right here.. that would prolong this thread even further...

I have had a lot of luck scouring flea markets, church rummage sales and garage sales for vintage pieces for the trailer. But I haven't found any REAL trailer parts.. just a metal Ambassador name plate in a junk box.. looks like it has been through a fire. It's now a paperweight.

Everybody, keep thinking and posting!

You make your own entree for yourself. As far as what you bring for the potluck, that's your choice. We did it this way last year and we ended up with plenty of variety. Everyone has their favorite so again bring what you want, we try to make this easy. Just bring enough to share with 6 to 8 others. The way I figure doing the math 25 units each bringing something to share multiplied by 6 to 8 servings means lots of food.

You know I like the idea a little flea market, maybe limited to a few items per site. Just have the items available for inspection at your trailer...figure you can show them while we are doing the trailer tours Saturday after lunch.

I'm thinking about bringing my dual-cam hitch and bars if someone might be interested. If anyone is interested in my receiver from my 2003 GMC van, I can bring that also.

But keep in mind we do need to use the tables for food Saturday night so if you are bringing some stuff, remember we will probably need to borrow some tables to move to the food area.

I don't believe that park folks will have any issues, especially if we keep it local to each site, rather than anything formal.

I'm in site A12 (not that you asked ;-) )


I don't expect to actually be staying in a trailer though.
Probably the truck bed

I wish I knew you were trying to figure out who's in P36 - I was just at the park, and I saw the list

Maybe this is getting in over our head for this year, but consider:

How about "Workshops" where a group can go for specific information on the many aspects of Airstreaming. These "workshops" could include, but not be limited to:

1. Winterization and storage techniques.
2. The Magical Mystery Electrical System.
3. Water Systems- the Fresh, the Gray, The ugly(black).
4. Care, cleaning, and general loving, without upsetting our significant others.
5. Propane sytems- gas you can live with.
6. Towing and manuvering- stop the madness.

...and so on.

I know there are people on this forum that are experts on one or more of these things, and I'm not one of 'em.

My thought is that there would have to be at least two times for each workshop, in case one overlaps with another that some one would want to attend.

Having these workshops would answer alot of the same questions that I think we all have, thus giving more time to brag about our own trailers.

I know the MW Rally is a Friday-Sunday deal, but maybe next year those who could make a Thursday-Sunday rally, Thursday could be a teaching day as well. Workshops should start early in the day, when it is cooler, and more folks are around. Coffee and Krispy-Kremes anyone?

Just some thoughts. Now back to our regularly scheduled programing....

I think this is a fantastic idea, considering this will be our maiden voyage...

Problem being.... If we have workshops, fleamarkets, movies, and pot luck, we're turning into a formal WBCCI rally, instead of an informal forum rally.

I thought that's what this is all about. INFORMALITY, and no schedules.

I DO agree with you, it just seems like this whole rally is getting formalized, instead of laid back-do what you wanna do....

Great idea, Johnathan, but scoot over, please. I'm one step ahead of you with my request for a polishing demo-from several weeks back! (I wonder how many PAGES back that was?) My Blue Magic is packed in the AS. By the way, do you all realize the Rally is just 10 days away!! Time for provisioning! How did the first trip camping go, Johnathan? Thinking. . .hand on the bottom of the steering wheel, turn in the direction you want the trailer to go. . .we are practicing too!

I would say this...if folks want to polish, feel free. If others want to learn or watch...hey even better. If folks have questions, ask someone, there are no stupid questions...just a few grins as we've all been there.

I don't think we should have a how to or other type of "Home Depot" type events. I think if one does it and others follow, great, but I for one would like time to enjoy the company, sit back and relax rather than clean/polish the coach or do a Tim Allen seminar. I am however very happy to answer any questions I can to help folks out, help back folks in , help setup, etc.
