Hitched up again...

We also want to chime in. Thanks again Jeff for your continuing efforts getting this fun group of Airstreamers together. Seeing old friends & meeting new attendees was great!!
Already looking forward to Casini in the Spring & Jackson next year.
Elle & Tom

HUGE Thanks to Jeff as well!

Back home, finished a couple more rounds of "work" and found a break to download and upload pictures.. Had the usual great time, and felt bad about missing some conversations, but it is just a great time to be with so many interesting people and their interesting Airstreams and relate on such a special level... The people with white boxes and even fancy diesel pusher motorhome busses just don't know what they're missing...

Logging all the reservations in and out and amended and cancelled and relocated is a LOT Of work, and thanks to Jeff for being willing to volunteer and do it.. Keeping a sense of humor and perspective and working with the staff at Jackson Rancheria RV office is also critical, and under-appreciated...

Photos of Vinnie spending gloomy Friday on the roof of Cam's trailer converting the roof sprinkler back into a water-tight skylight, and of the central lineup early Saturday morning after spirited cocktail party and reception... Next year the laptop stays at home!

As with everyone else, Becky and I want to thank Jeff for all the hard work he did to pull off yet another fantastic rally.

We had an uneventful 400 mile trip back home to L.A. Monday with an early Tuesday morning trip to Washington D.C. So I am in my hotel room getting ready for 2 days of meetings. Then I fly back home Thursday night to get ready for the SoCal Fall Rally in Kernville on Friday thru Monday. Guess we just can't get in enough rallying in only one weekend. Looking forward to seeing the other rally animals who are attending both events!


Safe travels,

Yes, indeed, Jeff....you managed to make another EXCELLENT rally happen! Thanks for all your hard work!!!! It was sooooo sad to leave today....only Sunshine was left. The SOB's quickly invaded "our space" when folks stated leaving on Sunday, but the memories of all the fun we had and hanging out with the few Airstreamers that were left made it okay! This morning, Safari-Rick and ROBERTSUNRUS got out by 8:00am, both having a long travel day; T-Square, FreshAir, and Warbler5/TinEarPaul departed between 9:30-10:00am. See you all at Casini!!!!!!

Lynn and I arrived on Tuesday but I did not take any photographs until the 11th. We were greeted when we arrived by sunny days but by Thursday and Friday the days were overcast.

The grey skies did not cloud our Friday greet and meet with a mini pot luck in place.

Thank you all so much for welcoming us to our first rally. We had a great time! Anything that starts with chocolate has got to be great! (Thanks to Neil and Lynn). Vinni thanks for the great advice! Who knew, tires with tread on them could blow from the inside ?
What a wonderful group of people you all are! We had such a great time and learned so much! (and ate so much). We spent most of the day Saturday talking to everyone about their bathrooms and poop in general. Do you poop in there ? What kind of toilet do you have? How do you dispose of poop? etc.. Very exciting!

Honestly, I was just thrilled to be able to wash dishes with warm water!!

We are now fixing up our little Caravel and are looking for a 22' Airstream. We think 22' would be the perfect size for us. Mark wants to redo the inside. If anyone knows of one for sale please let us know!

Thank you all so much for sharing with us and letting us peek into your Airstreams !
Our doggies slept all the way home and all day Monday!!

And of course thanks again Jeff for all you did for us!! (please make sure to put us down for next year!)

Mark and Denise

Neil, thank you so much for posting such great pictures. Seeing all the faces reminds me of all the people I didn't have a chance to catch up with on this trip. I hope to see everyone at Casini.

Good morning all. It may not be 'morning' when you are viewing this but it's a glorious Thu......No.....a Wednesday morning. My week is all Saturdays.....except Sunday for that's when, Lynn, makes me take her to church.

Last Saturday, better known as POTLUCK DAY began with a bright blue sky. The pot luck was a few hours away but we all need this beautiful time to mingle with old friends and make new friends. I love new faces and the enthusiasum that they show. Our, Lynn and I, first rally began with some nervousness especially after a friend told us, "You didn't just buy an Airstream, you joined a cult"!

Perry Hand was unfortunately call to a job site but he had already set in place an entertaining demonstration from a local shop , The Kichen Store. I see and saw many in this audience in this old store on Sunday.
