"Mini Rally"??

Tell me again why we're calling this a "Mini Rally"??.......we're going to be just as big as the NorCal, Moraine View, and Hiwasee(sp) forums rallies (10-15 units)......aren't we? Maybe cuz we don't not have any moderators in attendance. ...... but I don't think there are any in the NW!
I know there's gotta be other NW AS'ers out there that would enjoy the group coming to BG SP......so let's RALLY!

I started out calling it a no-host mini-rally (don't remember who I stole that from). It's just a forum rally. Room for all. Half the folks coming don't even know about the forum, but they're welcome too. Just a bunch of ASers getting together for a good time.

Maybe it's 'mini' because we don't have all the meals, activities, and morning buglers of a WBCCI rally

I can see the local headlines now

Rouge Airstream group decends on Battle Ground lake State Park.

Battleground WA April18th.

A rouge and unsactioned group of aluminium toteing renagades caused havouc this weekend in Battleground. Park rangers are still realing from the effects of the 20 plus units that took over the parks facilites this last friday night. Local campers were shocked to find all the sites were completly over run with large aluminum trailers. Reports are still scetchy about the chalk outlines and spent shell casings found at the site but no shots or injuries were reported.

Well - I have a bugle, and although I can make it loud enough to wake all you renegade rally-ers, I lack a certian finesse with the instrument. Will accept bribes to leave it at home......

Blow your bugle in the shower

I'm sure the ADA shower has enough room for you to bring your bugle in and blow revele from there. Just dont' use up all the hot water

I think we're coming....

minus the wife Mona's got an engagement she needs to be at, but me and the kids NOW look to be free (although we need to leave after breakfast on Sunday for me to be home for work that night).

Can I bring bacon, syrup or something? Do we need stuff for the pasta dinner?

Look for the stripped Argosy.... right now it looks SO trailer park

You get the special parking spot in front of my neighbor's house

Cool, glad you and the kids can make it. No kickboxing though - oh well.

Refreshments

I will bring along some refreshments. Sounds like the food items are all taken care of. I am usually well outfitted anyway if anything extra is needed. I have some firewood. Do you think we'll need some ? I am making good progress on my Caravel. The new pieces are starting to roll in !!! yay ! Now how does it all go back together ?? hmmmm.......lol

More floor/leak troubles.

Hi all, Well after the constant rain this weekend I have found a few more leaks in the Caravel. They are all in the typical spots, furnace vent, refridge vent, and someplace in the back that I cannot find. The bad news is that the floor behind the shower pan is rotted out under the body of the trailer bad enough that I can poke my finger thru it. This has caused me to rethink my plan on just repairing the floor. I am thinking it is best to do this just once ! SO, I guess I am gutting the entire thing and putting a new floor in at least back there (can you say nearly full monte). I am not looking forward to taking the shower out. I hope its not too hard. The front part of the coach still remains dry and the floor is in good shape, all bolts tight etc. Unfortunately this means that I will not be able to bring the Caravel to BG Lake. I will however, still show up for the day. I like the idea of meeting other Airstream owners !! I will keep a photographic record of things to come. If nothing else it will be a learning experience !

Unhappy Darn!!

Chris,

Well.....the rains are back in the NW (I'm glad for the wet weather again?).......but look on the bright side.....better to find the leaks now than later! You should bring some pics of your Caravel to the Rally, so we can see what you've done so far. I'm sure you and Steph have a lot in common on repairs. Will be taking our 28' in for some warranty work on the furnace next Monday, and replacing a stove-top starter knob + some other warranty checklist items. Should be ready for some serious RV'ing! Since we're up in WA in April....we're considering going to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival (April 1-30th). Has anyone been there before?? It's 60 miles N of Seattle, near Mt Vernon. We're considering either going before or after the BG rally depending on "Mother Nature's" influence on blooming tulips at their peak. We're also attending the WOU/OU WBCCI rally the next weekend in Lincoln City.....and should see some of the forums folks at this rally also. If anyone has been to this area for the tulip festival....I'd appreciate their comments.
Also, I see the BG SP lists their camping sites as 22' X 30'.....is this big enuf to get my 28' into and park my TV (CC should know) ?? I don't want to miss this one becuz I'm too big (apparently with camping size does matter!) .
Still looking for more AS'ers to attend this rally......I know you're out there........so don't be shy.....come and enjoy a great time with a super bunch of folks !!

Jim

Too big?

Sites are usually measured from bumper log to road. A trailer (long trailer) has some over hang in the back of the site that buys some footage past the bumper log. I imagine you can get er backed in but may have to un hook and park sideways in front. See what you get for being greedy and wanting a bigger rig

Or park your Tow vehicle in some other campers site. If I have room you can park in mine since I have a SMALL trailer

But hey if you wipe out any standpipes with the ole hindenberg I don't know you
