Once again a great time thanks to Jack and company. We really enjoyed seeing all the old faces and new. The pot luck was better than ever!
We were parked across from the fabled scary tree, written about so much in the past. He must have been happy to see us all together again. Considering all the reports of severe storms he must have used some of his magic to keep us dry during the festivities.
Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Tom and Sue.

Kissed by a tree...

It appears in Tom's photo of "the tree" that it is kissing the rear of Tracy's trailer. Let's hope that is as close to being kissed by a tree that any AS ever gets.
Had great time meeting everyone. Maybe next year we can have a vintage AS & vintage VW Rally, seems that at least five of us have had both a vintage VW & an AS. Might have to do with the similar curved lines.

Took our time getting home. Had a great time with everyone at the rally.
Thanks to all who worked so hard to get it all together.
Loved the tours,loved the food, but most of all loved the friendliness of all the attendees!

Bilouie. We couldn't be happier to see such a nice couple buy our cool looking 1992 29' - - - the stripped awnings on all sides really make it look cool. Next time show them to the crowd.

The great thing about AS's is the pride of ownership and the good times that will be had. Looking at the vintage units at the rally, I could only imagine the many fond memories that people must have been had traveling in these coaches. We enjoyed the rally so much we'd be ready to do again in a heartbeat.

the birth of a classic moho........

well....

those of you that left early
missed a wonderful weather
after the rain....
and a most blessed event.....
on the moraine in illinois


the birth of an airstream moho....
this is not a toy...

it's a little know fact
that a classic silver palace
start life as weeeeee black thing....

see
just as zamboni pulled out....
his 79 (prime breeding stock)
like a humpback in the baja
gave birth......

with the family onboard
waving and all smiles

when just behind
the birth hatch opened
and there she was.....

all glorious in ebony.....

and as they drifted
slowly from the park
on the moraine
and in full view

a glimpse of her true future
and potential

a little silver bullet

what a sight!
on a sunday afternoon.....


cheers

Glad to hear Patty is doing better.

It was once again a great time for all.

As for a certain mystery Airstream that didn't arrive, I think it's at least the 2nd rally that this particular person's Airstream was to appear but didn't. Any bets on next year?

Now, thanks to your computer trickery, mama zamboni thinks I should have the VW painted to match the MH...and I already bought the other paint
typical though

I recognized the mini-Airstream and TV from a theme decoration during the afternoon tours -- there's no photographic memory involved, just pure chance.
So, figured it out yet? Thanks to HotLava Afta12delite hotLAVA -- aw heck, Tracy and Ron for the Twinkie themed dessert.
Every year at Thanksgiving dinner, I take credit for every delicious dish on the table and hope the true chef is too humble to say, "Wait a minute! I cooked that! I'm the one that made that delicious dish! She's taking credit for my hours of chopping, slicing, baking, and a family tradition!" Lucky for me, most people have more class than I.

So if I were given credit for a dish that say, Denellen really dreamed up and provided for the Midwest Rally Potluck - a dish that impressed both our pallets with flavor and our eyes with creative presentation - it's just not my nature to give credit where credit is due. It would be up to Denellen to come forward and say, "Wait a minute! I brought that! I'm the one that brought that delicious dish! She's taking credit for my hours of box opening, twinkie parking, and an Airstream tradition!"

2air, must tell you how much I enjoyed your post on the birth of an Airstream. The photos were truly amazing - capturing those first few moments of her birth..... I'm speecheless.

Lastly, as for Oliver (Oliver is my tree), I did my anti-severe storm dance around him when we arrived on site, chanted, sang, sacrificed a twinkie, and promised to come back next year. He told me he wished the entire group would join in.....so next year, first item on the agenda will be a tribute to Oliver. The dance is a bit complicated - chanting Na na nana nana na...and so on, a specially choreographed set of moves starting with two hands making beaklike motions at your sides, then flapping bent arms lastly shakin' your booty I'll get everyone up to speed before then.

Anussia,

Nice photos from the Moraine View 2006 rally. Young Frankenstein, puppy dogs, husband, night pix of flamingos and your new Airstream riding over the spring green of the glacier-cut midwest.
