Funny how this always comes up. I've always considered San Luis Obispo as the dividing line. Chico and north I've always called the "North State" since living in Chico thats what they called it. Anyway, NorCal refers to where most the ralliers lived when we first started. Now we get a lot of So Cal brothers like Uwe coming up when we rally in the central coast.

Anyway, Here are my rally questions. I see by the explanation that there is a potluck on Saturday. We will bring something to share. Are the rest of the meals on our own, or do informal potlucks just sort of "happen" on the other nights/mornings? Should we plan on "potluck" for munchies around the campfire?
NorCal Forum rallies are very informal, meaning there really is only one planned activity; the Saturday night potluck dinner. (all other meals are on your own) But we do have a general routine. Arrival is Friday afternoon. Ralliers usually happy hour with each other as everybody arrives. We pretty much have spontaneous gatherings the rest of the weekend with tours of rigs being a constant. Saturday we put the tables together and have a feast and a campfire. It is the highlight of the weekend. Sunday we walk around with coffee and say our goodbyes. Pretty simple, relaxing and always goes too fast.

Quote:
Would appreciate a little run down so I can decide what I should bring.
I will start a potluck list in September so we can see what everybody is bringing and plan accordingly.

Thanks! Looking forward to the rally! Will be great to meet many of you and see your trailers!

Mrs. NorCal Bambi (traveling in S Tardis)
It always great to see old friends. And if you come to a NorCal rally, you are amongst old friends. Post if you have any other questions. See you in October!

No reservations are needed in October. Southshore has 500 campsites. Shouldn't be too hot since it will be late October. Really perfect weather.

Hi everyone!
Just got off the road after a wonderful 20 day trip with our old Airstream. We're ready for another fun rally. Our trailer continues to amaze us, as to just how reliable it is. Met many others with new sob trailers having major troubles!!!
Big Dee, you need to get the potluck dinner list up.
Looks like a great group again, see everyone soon, Jeff

You're right Jeff, everybody think about your potluck dish and I'll start a list soon. It is always great to get a look at our menu. Mmmmm...

Big Dee,

Might be fun to confer some honorary awards. How about "oldest trailer", "newest trailer", "greatest distance from stationary home", "oldest owner", "youngest owner", ...?

I'm sure that the creative types among us could dream up some interesting categories. Looks like a terrific turnout. We'll be there on Thursday to secure a prime spot!!

Paso Robles Harvest Wine Tour - Oct 20 - 22

We spent a few days in Paso Robles last month (yes, while it was crazy hot! ) and had fun exploring the bounty of wineries and tasting some great wines. I just happened to notice that the weekend of the NorCal Rally Paso Robles is hosting their annual "Harvest Wine Tour" where most of the wineries offer tours, special tastings, and events like hayrides, grape stomping, and art shows. Sounds like it will be a fun weekend in the wine country!

More info on the harvest: http://www.pasowine.com/events/harvest.php

A wine tour? How cool! Problem is I seem never to get away from the campground on Saturday but that would be fun. Wine is good...

Who has a movie idea for the Saturday night "drive-in" movie? We had a lot of fun watching the Airstream shows that Tim put together last time. But we need a movie for this time (must be DVD, no VHS). I was going to show "The Long, Long Trialer" as Tim has that on DVD but we will have to save it for next time. What other movies could we get that are on DVD? Whats Eating Gilbert Grape has an airstream theme in it. What else?

What's Eating Gilbert Grape is a great movie, one of my personal favorites. But then, I am a big Johnny Depp fan. Baghdad Cafe has an Airstream in it, as an Artists home/studio.
Wasn't there a thread recently with Airstreams and movies?
I have the DVD that came with my Airstream anniversary book, have not seen it yet in it's entirety. I think it has vintage caravans etc, in it. Might be boring, I don't know. Too bad we can't have Fred Coldwell with us, he did a great presentation of the history of Airstreams a few years back at a Colorado Springs VAC Rally.

As far as 'movie night', I can bring a LCD projector that we can project on a sheet somewhere. As long as there is power...

How about Albert Brooks' "Lost in America"? While not strictly about Airstreams, it still involves an RV as a means of escape, a dream shared by many Airstreamers no doubt.

Here's the synopsis from Netflix:

"David (Albert Brooks) and Linda (Julie Hagerty) live a boring life. David has dutifully obeyed orders at an ad agency for 8 years, while Linda has devoted 7 years to a dead-end job. But after David gets fired, the couple impulsively embarks on an odyssey of discovery, traveling across the United States and when they park their RV in Las Vegas, all bets are definitely off!"

scary

myoung,

The movie "Lost in America" is partially to blame for me not "opting out" earlier in my life. It is very funny, but, if realized, very scary. I agree that it would be a good flick for the Airstream crowd.

John
