Too bad about fabofabo not making it. The good news is a couple of my friends are going to be there, camping in our spot next to the Overlander. Doug might even bring his 4x5 camera. And I stocked up on Cuban cigars. Now I need to replensih my single-malt Scotch. That stuff keeps disappearing somehow. I think the bottles must be defective.

Hey Photobitstream, I have that same problem with my scotch...and no better luck with my bourbon

I am so bummed that I can't make it...this really sounds like a fun group. I am encouraged to hear that the weather is improving down that way as I was worried that I would have to winter over in PORTLAND!!! Winter seems to have arrived early.

Big Dee, can I take you up on the free cocktail offer at a later date?

i'm ready

Got prints of our trailer, tomorrow we hit Costco for aquarium tickets. We're arriving early Friday, leaving Sunday afternoon.

Coastalview and Big Dee, can you email me again and leave contact cell phone #'s for me?

We're going to visit the Carmel mission if anyone wants to join Saturday during the day. But our main motivation is to get there and see some interiors...who's willing to show off their trailer? We are your guinea pigs.

Get ready for lots of questions...we have a loooong way to go in fixing up our trailer...

See you soon! My trailer license plate, the only complete part of the trailer, is on the next to last page of the current issue of Airstream Life. I accomplished something at least!

Almost ready to go.

I got back from my dirt bike trip in the Nevada desert, safe and sound.

I have a few things to do this morning and then we might go down today. I will check and see if we can get our site a day early, if not I will find somewhere for the night.

We are looking forward to meeting everyone.

Talking One more day...

Ingrid, I am hoping everyone will be willing to show off their units on Saturday during happy hour. Anybody is welcomed to tour mine.

Mike, there should be no problem getting a site at LS. A four day weekend? Sounds nice. I am jealous.

I plan on arriving around noon. Friday looks to be beautiful on the Monterey Bay, sunny and warm. It's all coming together! One more day...

Packing up and almost ready to go. Is this the first annual Nor-Cal Forum Rally at Laugna Seca or have we been missing the boat somewhere? By the way, do ya get there from the Highway 68 entrance or another entrance, or does it matter ?

Hi Tin, the main and only access is from Highway 68. Either from Monterey or Salinas. PM or e-mail me if you need more info. See you there, Jeff

Ahhh, yes, directions. Laguna Seca Recreation Area is located on Hwy 68, midway between Salinas and Monterey. If driving 101, take Hwy 68 west through Salinas to Laguna Seca, entrance on right. Can't miss the signs. Or Hwy 1 to Hwy 68, go east to LS, left turn into entrance. It's the same entrance for everything, raceway/campground/firing range. Stop at ranger booth, tell them that your with Airstreamforums group. They should let you pass. Drive up the hill to your site number and set up. I'll greet everyone as they arrive, cocktail in hand. Then let the fun begin.

What a great Rally. Food was fantastic, watching the races and kids play was fun but meeting everyone was just the best. Can't wait for the next one. Our special thanks to Big Dee for all the hard work that really turned this into a special event. Now we're on a mission to find Montreal Spice.....

Nor Cal Rally

I just wanted to say thanks to Big Dee for organizing the rally.
Debbie and I had a great time . The sites had a great view, the food was outstanding and you can't beat all the people we met. I finally got to see a floorplan I have been looking for. I also want to say thanks again to all the people who let us see their trailers.
We did go by Toscanos on the way home. We left with the same trailer we arrived with. They had alot of trailers in stock, some of which I had wanted to see. They did have some used trailers in stock so if anyone is looking give them a call.
We are looking forward to doing this again, maybe in the spring.
Thanks again to everybody that made this so enjoyable.

Mike B

Just what I needed

Dropping by and crashing the rally on Satuday was great. I have been wrestling with whether I can really afford getting into the Airstream world. Well, if being an Airstreamer means hanging out with such friendly, helpful and interesting people, then it is definitely for me. I only regret that I didn't get down there earlier to have more time to meet everybody and pry ideas from you.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to my worries and concerns, who shared their experience and advice. It was just what I needed.

I put a deposit on my new trailer Sunday morning. It should be here in 2-3 weeks they tell me. Now I just have to get the truck purchased and I'll be ready to go. Can we have another rally soon? Maybe a rally in a big, big field so we can all help the newbie to learn to back up.

Big Dee, you are the best. Thanks for putting the rally together.

I think I've recovered

What a fun weekend that was! I had a great time, and Big Dee, Big Jeff said the tri-tip was great, of course I thought so too, but he's a bit of a barbecue snob (don't tell him I said that).

Thanks for organizing it. Watching the races was fun, the kids had a great time and I smelled that camping/firewood smell in Amelia's hair as I carried her into the hotel. That's the smell of good memories. My niece was too exhausted by Sunday to get freaked out by Halloween (she doesn't like it). She went to sleep last night at 8 pm. Amelia (my daughter) slept in her Scooby Doo costume. All in all, a complete success.

That nice couple from Bakersfield...I hope I didn't scare them off with my belly pan story...I hope they realize mine is a '67 and that the new ones don't come with mice poop...they were the kindest folks! I'm still amazed at this airstream/good people phenomenon. I haven't met a 'streamer I haven't liked as of yet.

If anyone is up here in the Oakland/Alameda area and wants to be shown around, I'm here for the asking. We don't have room for a trailer in our driveway however!

Thanks to all for opening up their trailers and giving us a look-see. To get our minds off of the belly pan/frame repair, we got to talk interiors all the way home.

Looking forward to pictures,

pinkflamingoes (aka "ingrid")
