I mistakingly posted this onto another thread that I was on this afternoon..... Yeah, DG, I let the weather confuse me...I thought I'd get the car ready to hitch up when it began to rain. Thankfully we finally got our driveway paved this summer. Before I'd have to hitch the AS to my 4x4 to tow it up the gravel driveway then hitch it to the car. The only difficulty now is I have to back the left rear wheel of the car up a ramp. The trailer is level north/south at it's axle but not where the car has to be to hitch up. REEEEEAAAALLY tough to lift the left WDH spring bar ito place without the car's axle level too . I'll finish hitching in the morning then we're off on our 45 mile drive south. Exciting!

I've been waiting for the 'scheduled' sky shower to wash the Blue Halo...

Hoping it would start before 2:00 AM so I wouldn't have to scrub her down in my undies in the middle of the night...

My wish came true, as it started about 6:00 PM with some big drops...got out the wash bucket and soaped her down...

The steady, but meager sky shower has done a fine rinse job, and we'll be shining again as the sun blinds us all up in the hills this week end...

Party on...but be careful out there as this wet stuff lifts the summer's coating of oily residue on the roads...

Hi, we're still getting ready for this Rally. We had some rain yesterday but not too much. Today we got some light sprinkles so I washed my Safari. Not perfect because it still has some bruises from our Alaska trip, but it still looks good for a seven year old trailer that has never been waxed. Tomorrow we finish loading our vehicles and greasing my hitch. The Lincoln will be hitched to the Safari and backed up into my driveway for an early Thursday morning departure. Boo-Boo still has no idea that he is going on another trip. Since we don't have an exact date of birth for Boo-Boo, we will just say he turned 14 this month.

We are currently near Ashland, OR staying at the Valley of the Rogue State Park. Stayed an extra day here so we could go see a play in Ashland this evening (or last night based on the current time, guess I should'nt have had that coffee at intermission). Heading south in the morning down the Redwood Highway. Not sure where we will be staying on the way to the rally, but are planning to arrive at JR sometime on Friday. Any suggestions on a couple of overnight spots on the way that will position us for an early afternoon arrival on Friday? We just can't wait to meet everyone, see all of you soon!

I was thinking these past few days.......actually I was remembering. Remembering a frequent NorCal rally participant, Jim (kontiki). As some of you know Jim passed away earlier this year. Let's 'toast' to his memory when we see each other at Jackson. The photo of Jim and his wife, Ginny, was taken at the Lake San Antonio Rally in October, 2007. We are meeting this year at JRRV partly because of Jim's and doorguner's efforts. I joined them one day in a search for a new location to Fall rally at. It was that fun day visiting potential rally sites that lead to DG's eventual discovery of a brand new RV park....Jackson Rancheria. Ginny, we hope to see you at ths years potluck. To Jim....God speed.

Neil

Thanks, Neil for remembering Jim. Last year was our last rally. I am planning to stop by to visit with old friends on Sat. Ginny

UGH...it's always sumtin. Lifting that street side WDH bar took an added 3' of pipe. The ramp under the car idea didn't work. Must be a physics thing. But fear not we are hitched and about to pull out.

I saw a white ford pulling a late model AS on EB 80 at 3:00pm. I was on my way to school. I wonder if they are headed your way...

Yes, 4 of us arrived about noonish. Doorgunner, Warbler5, T-square and us. A few sprinkles, breezy and threatning skys. I saw another Airstrean pull in on the other end of the park so since I'm the Official unofficial greeter I walked down and did my greetings to another unofficial Official greeter, Patrick, for another upcoming AS rally....the Santa Clara Unit who will be rallying here next week. I invited him to come on down and join us.

The Jackson Rancheria weather cam seems to be down. The link on page 34 of this thread takes me somewhere else.

Darn. I was hoping to get a screen shot from the Jackson cam of all the Airstreams at the rally.

Don't tell me you started the party without us and knocked the cam pole over. ;-)
