We just got back and I have to post a teaser. The evening festivities were a blast! I should have kept that tarantula as a pet. He was real cool and very mellow. Did anybody get a picture of me holding him???
O.K. I have pano's to rip....

It seems like the fog affected everyone. Here's the first painting I did when I got back:

Great Rally !!

What a good time. More first timers- more neat trailers- more fantastic pics. more more more.
FreshAir and I convoyed to the vinyard yesterday and arrived here at around 1630.
We saw a few AS while enroute. Wicked cross winds around Los Banos but not much effect on stability. We did slow to 55mph. The problem was that when a big rig passed he was tween us and mother nature- then when he passed she gave us a short blast. Anyway it's all good. Neil and Lynn will be leaving this morning for their short trip to Hangtown this morning.
Thanks to all- LL and I had a great time, thanks for sharing in our fun trip.
DG

Thanks Karin. It's just a matter of adequate inspiration. This weekend provided more than enough. I think the violin music pushed me over the top.

1st Annual Burning Spider Rally was fantastic!

WOW! That was a great rally! Those are great pics everyone has posted. I especially like that one of Buttercup's with the spider hanging over the fire and Karen playing her fiddle.

I had the most interesting conversations during this rally then any other rally I've done. It was fascinating talking Burning Man and WBCCI with Buttercup and Kimber. Politics was the topic on Saturday afternoon with Karen, LL, Katy, and all. It was fun to talk about how screwed up things are. It was fun talking with David about actioning everything he owns so he could go fulltime. And the many other great convos I had with everyone. Interesting group, that's for sure.

We were never visited by a ranger all weekend. What a difference from last year. That's proof that doorgunner behaved himself this time.

Thanks to doorgunner for weighing all our tongue weights. That's good info to know. Also the demos were great too. And thanks to Doorgunner for hosting his 2nd wildly successful wine tasting happy hour. A big thanks to Michael David winery for sponsoring our rally. It was fantastic wine, that's for sure.

The rain during the potluck added character to the rally. It was fun and cozy crowding under the tarps. The rain stopped in time for a wonderful bonfire thanks to Jeff. The lowering and burning of the spider with Karen playing the fiddle was the highlight of the entire rally. Everyone get building their spider for next year.

Six of us stayed for Sunday night and had another wonderful potluck and fire. Very sad to say goodbye and leave on Monday but at least I got an extra day.

It's the people that make these rallies so special. Thanks to all of you wonderful Airstreamers, Argosies, and the Squarestreamers. Hope to see all of you in the spring.

And thank you, Dan, for putting all of it together.

By the way, we need to concoct an official drink for next year's rally, something deserving of the name spider bite. Maybe entrants can spend the year perfecting their poisons, and folks can pick their favorite at the rally.
