Please let me or Rhonda know how many I can expect. Thanks
Well there is D.J., Hannah, Rebekah, and me

Angry Goodyear tires made in china

Our plans to come to the rally are now up in the air, or more likely down the drain . We have reservations but we experienced our first mishap with the trailer on Monday. We were headed home, on I -94, from a weekend at the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show at Willow Run Airport, when the curb side tire threw its tread and really tore up the wheel well and belly pan.

We are trying to get it fixed in time but our dealer has gone out of business due to the ill health of the owner, and we are going to have to take it all the way across the state to Woodland in Grand Rapids. They say they are busy for the next two weeks. So that kind of puts us in a bind.

We may know more after tomorrow but it does not look very promising.. I am considering canceling the reservations and then if the trailer is ready just hoping there will be a spot for us.

So sorry to hear of your baby's mishap.

I do have a pretty good stock of belly pan material and a rivet gun, maybe we could have a demo....?

I hope that you can get things fixed up quickly and still make it, there are plenty of sites still open for us.

We have been looking forward to meeting you, maybe the next time I run to Brown City or Melvin I can stop by.

Hey All!
I swear I did not fall off the face of the earth! We are still debating about attending the rally. We will be down in the area on Saturday (8/1) dropping the kids off with Grandma for a week. We then fly out of Detroit to San Diego on the following Thursday. With that said, the decision is 1) to show up without the trailer, again 2) Bring the trailer and find a creative place to park it until we get back from San Diego. I guess it depends when we are able to make it down on Saturday.
We will be at Tehquemanon State Park this weekend if anyone is interested in joining us. It will be loads of fun!
We miss you all!

I hope that you can make the rally in any form that you can! If you bring the trailer and then need short term parking I am sure that we can work it out for a week or so, no worries. Just come on down and have fun!

I thought you might enjoy a picture from the Christmas in July Rally that Airboss put on. Mr. Wagon and the Lovely Rhonda sure did dress their trailer up well.

Please if your trailer is at all operational.Come on down and have fun with us. We will not care if its torn up a little. If there's time and material we might even be able to repair the belly pan for U or at least lend a hand.
COME ON WHAT DA YA SAY?
Roger
