Nice Pictures

Thanks for the great pictures Janet and Kristianna. Looks like a lot of fun being had.

If anyone is heading home through Oakland today or tomorrow, be aware that part of the I-80, 880, 580 interchange collapsed due to a tanker fire. You may want to choose another route. Here's the report...
Calif. Interchange Collapses After Fire

By Associated Press
7:37 AM PDT, April 29, 2007


OAKLAND, Calif. -- An interchange connecting highways to the busy Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge collapsed early Sunday after a tractor trailer hauling 8,600 gallons of gasoline caught fire, authorities said.

The truck's driver suffered second-degree burns, Officer Trent Cross of the California Highway Patrol told KGO-TV.

The tanker ignited after crashing into a pylon on an interchange connecting westbound lanes of Interstate 80, which includes the Bay Bridge, to southbound I-880 in Oakland, officials said.

The fire led to the collapse of a second interchange from eastbound I-80 to eastbound Interstate 580 located above the first interchange, Cross said.

The Bay Bridge's heavily traveled double decks run about two miles across the San Francisco Bay.

collapsed overpass

We were on our way home last night at midnight, and passed right by the now-collapsed overpass. What a mess this is going to be for commuters tomorrow. When we passed by, the overpass was still intact, they were putting out the fire.

If you need to get to 880 South from that area, you can take the "old route". Stay to the left for a short jaunt on 580, get to the far right as soon as you can, and follow the signs from there to Downtown Oakland. That will take you to 980 and then 880 South. The overpass that fell was Eastbound, but there will still be rubberneckers, so when you see traffic, get over to the left.

Good luck, fun rally, off to clean up and get that fence built.

Later...

Wow what fun. I am sorry I missed it. Work calls though. Things are heating up here finally and making it comfortable to work in the hangar. Look forward to seeing some of you next year!

Hi,

We made it home fine, and after unhitching the truck and a/s Steve noticed that one of the 2 bolts holding the hitch together apparently cracked in half..luckily the other bolt held on..

We had a great time with everyone!..lots of great airstreamers! lots of great foods! terrific weather and tour of the unique airstreams! great entertainment too w/Silverbear, lumanati, and the Kazooers!..hope everyone makes it home safely:c lap:

WOW...what fun at the river! I didn't get to meet everyone but those that I did were the best. I am working on my "screen name"... so I'm not so exposed . Looking forward to s'more trips...Jim and leslie, thanks for the beer and dodgeball?! Stan my new vintage streamer buddy, Cam my mentor, Big D, and all of you who hope I don't get your personal emails. I promise I won't stalk the streamers. And this is my first post. Do I win something? (a chicken maybe Kvbo) Great time thanks again!

Great photos, Codybear! (Isn't that red Argosy a perfect gem in all that silver?) Glad you're home safe. Still feeling spoiled with that teriyaki abalone and those delectable pies.
We're also home and back to reality, but those pictures make me wish we weren't! That rally was truly a seminal event for us. Who knew that doing something so different was going take us even deeper into the silver addiction? Great, amazing, funny, interesting, diverse, and totally welcoming group. And all those gorgeous Airstreams! From the patina and soul of the vintage beauties to the vavoom of the new models (I'm still twitching with envy over the "Ocean Breeze" duet we had.) Not to mention the awesome waycoolnotatalltacky Moho. What a turnout.
I think we'll be back for seconds...
Hope everyone made it home safe and sound.
So glad we opted for the 19-280 route and missed the Richmond Bridge debacle. Thanks for the warning Slowolf.
And Buttercup, we're waiting impatiently for those beautiful (and very contest winning) panos you took.
Kristiana, we missed having you Sun., but glad you made the decision to get some needed rest!
Our thanks and best wishes to all,
Jane and Terry

What a Rally!

We're still in route, sitting on the beach in Pismo and eating ice cream. (This is camping!) (These SOB people aren't half as much fun as airstreamers!)

What a rally~the weather, the wine, the silver, and best of all the people.
Thanks Big Dee for getting and keeping it all together. Janet, I really, really want the recipe for Russian Cream, pm me. Sue T, kickball & cocktails, what a hoot, don't forget you owe me a drink @ the next rally! Good luck Cam on the mattress pad and the shades. Steve, the directions were perfect, nice intact roads, thanks mucho,hi to Paula. Hope to see everyone at the next rally and on the road!

It's All But Over

Just a few left now. Otters, Guy and Marian99, anholman, Blu Hwy Lady, Doorgunner, asherkobin, and us. We had our last potluck with the Otters and the 99s. More great food, wine, and conversation. This is our 6th rally and we continue to be amazed at how a group of people, many of whom have never met, can come together for a few days and just enjoy each others company. Lots of younger folks showing up too. Here are a few more pictures.

panos???

Pano?? You are worried about a pano but who is gonna clean this all up? Believe it or not, we went back after taking this shot to sit by the fire and have a night-cap. Kimber saw this view and wanted me to take a pano. So with the battery flashing angry red I clicked away until the camera quit.

But this shot says it all - the end of a wonderful day and evening.
