Wow, we're getting the royal treatment. Is there going to be a red carpet going up to the tent?

Seriously, that would be great.

You love me, you really really love me!!

Everybody do the Tarantella...

tarantulas don't hunt. they just wait and wait and wait for something like a bug to wander on by. then it pounces with incredible speed.

The name tarantula comes from a real spider that is found in Spain, it lives mainly in an area around the town of Taranto. In fact the real tarantula (The European Wolf Spider, Lycosa Tarantula) is distantly related to the other spiders that share its name. The real tarantula is a small slightly hairy spider (about 2 inches ((5cm)) across). It is not dangerous to humans!

The people of the Spanish town of Taranto, believed that if they were bitten by they spider that they called tarantula, if the bite was not treated quickly, that they would die. The only way to survive it's bite, they believed, was to do a dance called the Tarantella. This involved very fast spinning and jumping until they could dance no more and fell to the ground exhauasted. This the locals believed was the onlycure.

The real Tarantula of course is, like the other spiders wrongly named after it, are not really dangerous to most humans. You may feel a little sick if you have been bitten by a tarantula, but normally that is all. Nowadays, all large hairy spiders have been given the name tarantula, even though many are only very distantly related to the real tarantula. Tarantulas are often called bird eating spiders, very few actually eat birds, those that do usually raid nests and take the young chicks, most however, like our native spiders only eat insects.

Sidenote... the Tarentella dance sounds like something you do when a Tarantula crawls up your shirt...

The queen asks where the rest room is located. She enters and after a brief interlude all hear the swirling movement of water from behind the door.
The queen - quite refreshed - looks at the angel.
The angel says- Ms Parton- I'm sorry but the queen will only be allowed in heaven today.
What says Dolly, please explain.
The angel replies- Well even in heaven the best pair you could possibly hold is still beaten by a royal flush!!

Good one dg.

Update: Bruce is indeed playing the Friday night of the LSA rally. However last time he toured the show sold out in 2 minutes. I had to fly to Arizona to see him in Glendale. We'll see how it goes Sept 15th. I can't miss my shot in the arm when he comes to town. The truth is, I'm scared and thinking I ain't that young anymore...

You're IN!

Lisa-

Welcome, and please join us! Until Big Dee officially replies, this rally is at a County Park with hookup sites and no assigned or reserved spaces.. Depending on arrival time, you may have to walk from adjacent lop of sites, but bring potluck item and food and prepare to meet a lot of other Airstreamers.. Not heavily "Organized" (no official time sheets or agenda) other than cocktail hour and dinner Saturday.. You're welcome to sightsee, wine taste, or explore area around Paso Robles. Last year they held a holiday fair, car show and craft festival to entertain us in town.... DO bring cash to put in envelope for fees, since ranger station not staffed during much of Friday arrival window, and you need to pay on way in...

John

Hi Lisa, as John put it "You're IN" There are several loop areas that we will all be in with full hookups. If you would like to reserve a site in the "A" loop you can with the County parks office. Big Dee has done that for A1-A3 for himself,Cam and myself. Another forum member "ajanib" maybe be caravanning with me down on Friday afternoon from Carmel. So if you want to join us, feel free to do so. It's an easy drive from the Peninsula.
Jeff

raining under the trailer!

yup getting ready for another 5 day trip starting thursday!
So last sunday LL and I were getting ready for the trip to Calaveras Big Trees this week and she pointed out water leaking out from the belly pan! The whole belly pan! Found a repair the PO had cobbled in the main water supply line. What a wet mess, carpets soaked and who knows what creatures drowned in "belly pan land". So got the fans workin, carpet lifted and cold ones tilted back! Can't wait for the weekend, B.B. King and Etta James!
Sounds like there's going to be a good group this year.
Hey Dan;
I noticed the sign in thing says the list is inaccurate. I know Neil has changed his forum name in an effort to distance himself from me- now he's FreshAir. Must have something to do with that roadside stop we made when caravaning home from Casini last spring.
I got another surprise for LSA this year' he he he!

No tickets yet...they go on sale Sept 15th.

You got it right...I have a fan friend who lives in Phoenix, with an extra bedroom. She had frequent flyer miles galore, and the show in Glendale had plenty of seats, so I paid for the tickets, flew down for the weekend, hiked to the top of Camelback Mountain Friday, saw Bruce Saturday, Sunday flew home.

Let's just say I have a very understanding spouse!
