We'll look for you next year. OR maybe at Jackson Rancheria in October. It's essentially the same group.

A Good Monday morning to you working stiffs. We made it through the night. As posted before there was quite a storm last night. Wild lightning show with very loud thunder claps....not to mention the hail. The rain eased up through the night and presently it isn't raining. Howevr, as with everything the air is soaked. The Trade Wind had just 2 small leaks from vents but I'm sure there must be others. Our reservations are through to Tuesday but we have not decided if to make a run for it today yet.
Neil.

Hi all, I wanted to thank each of you for contributing to another wonderful rally at Casini Ranch.
We should all thank ourselves for being a part of the rally as it takes a little bit of each of us to make it successful!
Some had asked if this was the largest gathering for our Nor-Cal rally group. Here are some numbers to look at:
Previous record rally #5: 2006 at Lake San Antonio 31 units with 65 attendees for the potluck
Current record rally #13: 2010 at Casini Ranch 33 units with 75 attendees for the potluck
This is not a scientific data but close enough!
Hope to see some of you again at our Fall rally in Jackson!
There are 13 spaces still available so donít wait to long as they will be gone quick!
Click the link in my signature to find out more info.
Happy trails until we meet again,
Jeff, Kathy and Collin

What a storm, we too have a few nasty leaks, I guess we need to dry out and do some recaulking.

What a rally wow, Shanah and I have never had such great food. I will post the chili recipe but Shanah has a request for some of the great veggy recipes (whoever made them?)

Here is how to make about half as much chili as I made:

Meat:

package of pork choriso
5 pounds round steak (or other tender beef)
2 pounds boneless cut of pork

All meat is diced (Ed helped with this over a few beers, I think having a friend help--and a beer or two should be mandatory so I am including them)

One large sweet onion (vidalia or Texas 1015) also diced

one or two tablespoons of mashed garlic

Some oil to help the onion saute ( I used olive oil, the original recipe called for lard)


Spices:

Get some ancho red chilis (enough to pack into a quart pan) split and de seed, add hot little chilis ( about 6, I did not this time) and add some large dark chilis, (a few, this is a matter of testing and tasting) cover with water and heat the water until the chilis are soft. Mulch them with a blender (We have a hand blender that I used) Keep hot and add to the meat when the meat is cooked.

Toast some cumin seeds dry in a fry pan ( 1 tablespoon) and then blend these until chopped fine add to the chili

Salt and pepper to taste and add chili powder and or cayenne pepper to get the flavor and burn that you want. This depends on how hot the chilis are to begin with. New Mexico chilis are very hot, the kind you can buy in Ca are not so much.

After the oil and choriso are simmering, add the onions and turn until they are translucent, add the pork and turn until done, add beef and do the same. when the meat is cooked by itself, and some moisture develops from the meat, add the chili paste liquid and cook for two hours. If you need more liquid, use chicken stock, if you have too much liquid, let it boil off or add some thickening agent like flour, corn starch, bread crumbs or whatever.

Fuss with the spices until time to serve, (Be sure to sample occasionally to make sure that it is still good and have a gin and tonic while waiting...)

Looking forward now to some trailer work, and Jackson next fall.

Regards, you guys,

Ken and Shanah

WOW looks like it was great. Was thinking of you all from Denver and Boulder. Beeeeeutiful weather there after the snow fall on tuesday then in the 70's. My daughter has chosen University of Denver. Go DU!! so it was a fruitful trip. I came home to a message that they were holding my sites??@#$%%^? I canceled them on March 27th at 10 am in the morning via their voice mail and asked to release them to the Yhotty's!!! So sorry if that didn't happen. Unbelieveable. thought it was a done deal!!! I guess I shoulda checked but still can't get a voice on the phone. Sounds as though it was another great time.Cya on the road somewhere. Becoming a tin vagabond soon!!! How was the shrimp?

Silver Submarine?

We finally made it home yesterday afternoon after a truly exciting drive in a "special" rainstorm... With THANKS to Dan and Jeff and Vinnie and all the others who made Casini weekend a success, I wanted to share some of the learnings from the weekend:

1. It is possible to make a salad that is just too large...
2. When it is warm and cozy in the trailer and the rain is drumming on the roof and you're only thinking of the need to get up and hook up to get back for a Monday morning business meeting, that is WRONG!
3. Putting chairs and tables and stuff away the night before it starts to rain is a terrific idea.. Hooking up would have been better..
4. It is possible to hook up in 1" of standing water while someone soaks you with a hose, though it is not fun....
5. Picking lanes to dump is a lot like picking checkout lines or bank tellers back in the old days.. More often than not, you get it wrong... (At least the huge leak in rinse-out hose didn't really seem to make a difference...)
6. Driving in rain and 40+ mph crosswinds over a Bridge over the Bay isn't fun, but I was glad it was an Airstream instead of another brand of trailer... Very glad I never needed to test panic stopping ability of 14,000# of vehicles stuck together..
7. Driving on I-80 and 980 in rain so heavy you couldn't see 50 yards (even at only 25 mph...) is stressful.. The speeders going 50+ were floating from lane to lane on top of 4" deep water puddles..
8. An inexpensive propane firepit that didn't work last year won't work any better this year.. Follow Cam's example and get a good one, or burn wood!
9. Don't start a 3 hour stressful drive in horrible weather with 3 large cups of coffee, especially when there's no place to stop...

With all the learnings, it was still great weekend, and good to see a lot of great people who all enjoy great Airstreams... We gotta find a way to try getting together in summer weather (Parka's and Mittens Optional)...

Hi Sue,
I camped with Yhotties Saturday night in their new Caravanner, so the site was apparently not a problem.
Congrats on the college! Are you going to Jackson Rancheria this Oct?

Also meant to add the PS that having the ducks swimming -- not walking -- swimming in the campground puddles surrounded by the remaining Airstreams on Sunday around noon when we & Lili, Hans & Hans X 2 pulled out was quite appropriate for our new friends from England.
