Talking Rain? Snow? Who Cares?

I was thinking of my travels to and from the coast. (Newport Oregon) In twenty years I have seen snow on the hills, but the roads have only been wet at the time. Never a real problem.
Rain is another situation all together. I've seen buckets come down, the kind where you have to slow way down or stop because the wipers won't handle the volume.
That being said; I have checked the long range forecast and it looks like it will be in the 50's with about a 25% chance of rain for the Thursday through Friday that is all that is available now.
Looks good, can't wait to see you all.

P.S. If anyone has a portable propane heater and bottle for out side use it would be nice to have at the Saturday night potluck. I have one that I'm bringing. So far 1 campfire and one heater.

What other foodstuffs are still needed for the potluck? I'll pass it along to Frances, who is not on the forum.

Sunday breakfast???

So we've all stayed up late after consuming paella, drinking mulled wine and telling stories around the fire........would anyone be up for a group breakfast........either coffee and donuts (ordered out) or potluck breakfast...or whatever??? We'll all still be kicking around in the morning, and would give us another chance to visit before hitching up!
Input please!

Jim

Sounds interesting.... I'm not a high-functioning morning person but hubby is.... a really simple (although not elegant) thing to do would be a big pot of oatmeal and some interesting toppings. Oh yeah and coffee... mmm... coffee....

If anyone's feeling ambitious we've got a big griddle that drops on the camp stove; suitable for batches pancakes, etc. Ideas?

Well, there is always the option of breakfast out....like poppyseed pancakes at the Whale's Tale cafe???

BTW, I'll probably stay over Sunday night and take off for my grand adventure on Monday so if anyone else is interested in another night, that would be swell.

I'm all for breakfast around camp. Oatmeal and coffee sounds good. I can provide extra OJ to share with all, as I always bring along plenty for myself anyway, and I'm bringing the non-alcoholic drinks for dinner.

I'm pretty good at cooking pancakes, but I don't know about for a whole crowd! I'd be willing to give it a shot

Breakfast

We're "up" for either of the suggestions - I could make pancakes on our stovetop, but it sure is SLOW. However, we really like to sleep in while on vacation... what time do you all wake up? I also love to explore little local diners in small towns.. they usually have great breakfasts!

Also - if any of you are willing, my wife teaches Kickboxing and Step areobics - I'm sure she'd be willing to teach a morning class to burn off those carbs we'd be about to eat. Any takers? Weather permitting, I think we'll be out there doing our stuff in the morning.

We'll provide coffee....Starbuck's or equivalent (we have a 30 cup percolator we're bringing for mulled wine anyway) and bring blueberries for fruit (could use for healthy desert Saturday if no one has volunteered on this yet).
BTW....are we catching our own fish, clams, mussels? I haven't seen anyone stepping forward to provide these.

Very cool! About the seafood - we don't actually know! I suspect some will catch and some will stop at fresh fish market and some won't bring any.... it'll all work out!

Can't wait.

We had no idea!!!

Wow, someone on the vintage airstream email list just gave us this link, we had no idea you were out there!!! Way cool to meet all of you!! I wonder if we could actually pull off a trip to Beverly Beach next weekend. Are there still spaces left? I just posted for the first time about our airstream on the other list. Here's a bit about us:

My husband Ric and I have been lurking on this list for several months, asking a question or two, but staying mostly quiet because we know we are way early on the Airstream learning curve. When I met Ric, one of the first things I learned about him was that someday he wanted to own a vintage Airstream. Last spring, his dream came true... one Friday afternoon just before 5 p.m. he called me at work, and said a little too cheerfully, "How ya doin?" "Fine," I replied cautiously, "just getting ready to come home." He told me where he was (a ways out of town) and I asked, "What in the world are you doing there?!" He replied with great glee, "I just bought an Airstream!!"

And the rest, as they say, is history. Of course some would say we did it all wrong, first buying it and then learning about it... It's a 1964 Tradewind Land Yacht, needed pretty much everything redone... We named it Toaster Moon (long story...) Ric spent all summer doing all the grunt work (and hired someone who knew how to work on RVs to help with the stuff that took special knowledge) and I got to decorate it. Yes, it's been a money pit, no surprise there, huh? After we finished the inside, Ric took it to the closest real Airstream place to us (Sutton RV in Eugene, Oregon) and got new wheels, tires, and the axle checked and all that, then we took it on our first trip. I would only allow us to go about 20 miles outside Portland Oregon where we live because I was kind of fearful of pulling this really big thing behind us. A special challenge for us is that our son, who is 25 now, is in a wheelchair. He went along of course. We also have to take our two little fluffy dogs everywhere we go.

Anyway, it was kind of crowded, but we had a great time, I made us spaghetti for dinner, we learned a lot (which led me to the post asking about where the grey water is supposed to go, we didn't know it was going to pour out on the ground, which led to us getting busted by the park ranger after he got a complaint, but now we know about those blue tank things, which we will get before spring). So that glorious autumn Saturday evening in our Toaster Moon led my husband, who is a singer/songwriter, to write a song... called In a Toaster Moon. I think it could become the Airstream Anthem. I think it's so beautiful, a very catchy tune that's hard to get out of your head...

If you'd like to hear it for yourselves, you can do so at
http://www.cdbaby.com/ricseaberg4

And by the way, we don't know any other vintage Airstream owners, I've never even seen the inside of one, we would love to meet you and see one another's airstreams... so if you are ever heading to Portland Oregon please let us know. We hope to be able to start making trips next summer. I look forward to retiring someday so we can take long trips and maybe even attend a rally!!

Sorry for such a long post, is there a word limit, guess I'll find out...

Marie and Ric in Portland, Oregon

Lightbulb Epiphany

I just realized after reviewing this thread that we will probably be the ONLY non-Vintage AS at the Coast Rally! And from what I've seen on some of your Forum photo posts, the Vintage AS's attending all seem to be great representations of their eras ! We're excited to be in such a group, where owners have spent so much time, $, and effort to revive their AS. It only goes without saying, I hope we have time to do some tours of your "twinkies"! Since we're new at this (RVing), and wanted to enjoy the advantages of Airstreaming ASAP, we opted to purchase new. However, refurbishing a Vintage AS still intrigues me now that I'm retired!
