Mothball rally for newbie

Hey all,

We are "new to us" airstream owners of a '68 Tradewind. We aren't quite road ready...have to get the correct hitch set-up. Anyway we were thinking of being in the Detroit area the weekend of the Mothball rally. Would you mind if we were to stop by for an afternoon? We have sooooo many questions. Would we need to register? We would love to meet some fellow airstream owners.

Thanks

Jess,
Since our fearless leader Lou is not frequenting AirForums anymore I'll answer you. Lou would say that you would be more than welcome to attend - the more the merrier. At each of the past Metro-Detroit Forums Rallies we've one had at least one visitor stop in without a trailer. This rally seems a bit less organized than previous ones (no discussion of a Pot Luck or anything else officially planned that I am aware of). It'll just be some Airstream crazies getting together. I'm sure there'll be a camp fire at night. If you're going to stop in for a visit, Saturday might be best although I can't suggest a time. Some of use might be arriving as soon as Thursday, but we may use Friday for exploring around the area. Others will probably arrive on Friday. Thus Friday, late might also be an option.

In any case, Welcome. And if you end up not making it for some reason, keep you eyes peeled for an announcement of a Metro-Detroit Forum Rally next year - our main one has been in August the least three years, but talk of it begins early in the spring.

Is anybody up for a potluck on Saturday night during the Mothball Fall Rally? Thought I read a few threads back about having hot-dogs again on Friday night. I wouldn't mind cooking a couple of turkeys for the potluck. Renee, Felix and myself will not be arriving, till after 8pm on Friday, hope the fire will be roaring. Might have to park Felix close to the heat of the fire, seeing as he does not have a furnace.

Type ya Later - Derek

Thanks for the offer, we do have a couple of electric heaters that we will be using. They do a pretty good job, we used them in early April when we first brought Felix home and started the remodel. I recently took the old furnace apart, found a couple of items rusted away, so am contemplating getting a new one. Saw two for sale recently on E-bay from a place south of Jackson, MI one was $395.00 (20,000 btu) the other was $250.00 (30,000 btu). Funds at not available at this time. Bought an electric tongue jack instead.

Just thought I'd let everyone know that Lorrie and I (actually just me) decided to pull out of the Mothball Rally today. I have too much going on at home and work at the current time and getting the trailer ready for the Rally was getting to be an additional stressor that I just don't need right now. I hope you all enjoy the Mothball, but Lorrie and I will have see you all at next years LPPI Rally.

Have fun at the rally all. And Ralph be good and watch that recipe! Sorry we can't make it. We have had a delayed start but we do finally leave tomorrow for Door County Wisconsin for some bike riding and walks along the shore. Somebody give Uncle Buck a hug for me, Laura I leave that task to you.
