um...yeah. there's about a half-dozen that I know of. very informal. rent a site, and show up.

so are you coming all the way from Illinois, or were you planning on being in the area, anyway?

Hey folks,

Still working on getting Sunday off from work so we can come. Picked up our new tow vehicle, so no longer worried about traveling the hills of Vermont. Oh, really hope we can come!!

Oh how I hate to say this but it must be said! If this is a "new" denali shouldn't you break it in before you tow. Maybe you could drive to someplace and back to get the miles on it.

We are planning to start breaking it in this weekend. Oh, I guess you're right, that will only be one week away. Don't think we can drive 1000 miles that quick. Well, we'll have to drive the van! Well, either way, we'll try to come. Maybe for the day if nothing else!

Will post pictures soon! The rig is resting in the garage at the moment. It has so many features we need a book to figure them out! Never owned a vehicle like this before. Thanks to you all, we bought this.

Alas, I have to report that we might not make it to the rally. Our Honda Pilot is the subject of a recall, for a transmission fault. Our appointment to have it inspected is Aug 25.

If the transmission looks OK, the dealer will install an oil jet kit to prevent the problem from occurring, and we'll be on our way. But if the transmission flunks, they will have to replace it (free) and we will be grounded during the dates of the NE Forum Rally.

Yeah, I would but it's a two-hour drive from up here in the north land. Yikes!

But if you give me a ride, I'll do that!

can't they do the fix after the rally? I mean...I'd think it would take a few days to actually "get" a transmission. unless they're stocking them, or something.

Yeah, they really are stocking the tranny, or at least they have it nearby. We called them today to check. If it needs replacing they promise to have it done five working days.

We could re-schedule for later but I am nervous. If the fault exists, it manifests itself by suddenly locking the transmission, and in the words of Honda, "a crash could occur without warning." Imagine a front-wheel drive vehicle suddenly locking up the wheels at speed ...

Admittedly this is a rare event, but I am leery of towing 200 miles R/T knowing this. (Good thing I didn't know it last weekend when I towed 600+ miles!)

Exactly, don't know.
Bring your cell phone and I'll come get you if you don't make it down and let them get the honda. Whoever heard of towing with a honda in the first place. You need an American truck.

Hey, Chuck.

Yeah, we were in Illinois (long story), and now we're in NY, which is where we technically live.
The Midwest rally was fun (well, we were there friday and saturday, despite the fact that the shell was off the frame of the trailer at the time).....and now we're in the northeast.

It'd be nice to see and meet some Airstreamers out here!

We're leaving in a day or two to go on a trip....Kennebunkport, Bar Harbor, Nova Scotia... and the plan was to return home the middle of next week. So we're trying to figure out if we can kill enough time to still be up in Vermont for the rally. We'll be on the road for well over a week at that point. Did I mention we have a two-year-old son? And our trailer's only 20 feet long?

I think we can do it. And I think I'll make the reservation in Jamaica tomorrow. Maybe for thursday and friday nights.

-Chuck
