It's been a busy few days getting the airstream ready. I had pulled it over to my house from the storage yard last Friday for the weekend long rain leak test. Yep, it leaked. Between finding leaks, insulating air leaks in the trailer and doing maintenance, like fixing the power lift jack, cleaning the water heater and fixing a broken brake pin, I'm finally ready to START packing! Hope to be up at the park around 1 tomorrow. See everyone there!
Fire ban was lifted at about 3 this afternoon. Campfires are going in TEXAS! Woo hoo.

Am leaving in the morning on the trek to Blanco. Thanks to one of the above cancellations I got a spot in the park, sorry for someone else's misfortune and a break for us as I had never made reservations elsewhere and was about to settle on the other side of the river. Looking forward to old and new friends.

Finally heading out after Michael's many 11pm work nights. I'll be bringing the gastronomic trifecta of Slovenian soul food.... bean/sausage/saurkraut soup.

Blanco Christmas non rally/rally

So far our rally has been spectacular! 43 trailers in all! This is a new record! Thanks to everyone for your participation. Also, we had a great surprise, Cindy and Peter, our founding fathers of this Annual Blanco Christmas non rally/rally were with us tonight. If you didn't get a chance to talk with them, please try to do so today or tonight. They are both a wonderfully interesting couple. The judging of our flamingos is later today, children will be decorating their stockings and as always judges can be bribed! Oh no I meant to say that as always judges will be fair and very impartial! There that s better!

Totally agree. What a great time so far. Wish I could post pics from my phone but alas....that will have to wait till we get back home. The park is gorgeous and all the Airstreams are decorated for Christmas. Truly pretty as you walk around, especially site 9 , wow that is amazing! :-)

Huge amount of delicious food last night! I bet the park has never looked this festive before. Going to be hard for the Judges to make a decision but I'm thinking Chuck and Skye may win the big prize. Pretty shiny down there Andersons! I've had a sneak peak and I'm thinking kds may have the Ugly Sweater contest "sewed" up. And it was great to have Jim Whitworth able to join us even though he couldn't bring one of his Airstreams. Really enjoyed getting to meet and get to know Richard and Shelly. Think we will be seeing more of you in the future. Finally got to meet Red who "stole" my trailer several years ago - Jimmy has always loved that particular Airstream size and layout. Thanks again to the wonderful hosts for putting on such a fun Rally! We are having a blast. And the weather couldn't be any better!

9th Annual Blanco Rally Pics

Rally Hosts and assistants!

If the remainder of the rally is as much fun as it has been, WOW, we are in for a treat. And we still have 2 days left. The hosts are fabulous and can really throw a party.

We've got a great bunch of folks here and have yet to meet them all.
