Looking better..

Well, It's midnight, and I just got home from the shop. Lights and brakes are a go, everything else bolted down for the most part.
I almost forgot to put on shocks, and locks for the three access covers, plus the bumper compartment. Those would have been flapping in the breeze...
I hope it won't rain, as the trailer is not even close to water proof. No plumbing, no LP yet. Basically a 26ft tent on wheels.
Still need to secure the dump valve cluster, it's not glued together yet, and add a 40A fuse to the brake actuator. Other than that, it's load up and go.
I haven't tried the air mattress yet, see if it fits on the bed platform, but at this point, I really don't even care. Just get me out of here....
I plan on leaving OC at around noon.
See you all tomorrow.

Exclamation Open Spot

Anybody want to come at the last minute? There is an open spot available. PM me and I'll send you my cell number. I will be online at PCV.

Sorry to say that FattRatt also had to cancel along with Lotek. But Towster will be taking FattRatt's spot. We will miss Ray's stories around the campfire but glad Towster can now make it.

Nice report Dee. You have made me jealous that I am not there now.

John- Left early from Taiwan to get to the rally? Now that's dedication!

Good work uwe! I knew you could get it all done in time. Now, hopefully you arrive with all your trailer intact.

I am leaving soon and plan to be at PCV around noon. Hope to see everyone for a margarita at happy hour!

Pismo Here We Come

We are almost finished packing and hope to leave Riverside by 10AM. Driving a green 96 Suburban and pulling a 69 Globetrotter 21' nicknamed "the Towster." Hope to see other Airstreams on the road.

For the potluck we are bringing dinner rolls, fruit salald and killer Gin Martinis. This is gonna be fun!

Vince, Virginia & Mikey(age 6)

(Sorry you had to drop out FattRatt, we promise to have fun for you.)

What a great trip this has been!!! We got to visit with old friends and meet quite a few new ones. And, it looks like there might now be a SoCal forums group getting together, possibly planning future rallies!

It was very lonely to return and find almost all the Airstreams gone . BTW...we have a small collection of forgotten goodies: a couple of plates (one avocado and the other red), along with some orphan forks, knives, and spoons. TallZach, we hear the plates may be yours...now you HAVE to attend the next rally! We have it all bagged up, so we will bring it along to the next rally, if you should find yourself missing anything.

Well.......it's time to go take my daily walk on the beach!

Cheers, Dee

Was so nice to meet you all

Wanted to thank you guys for having us. we had a wonderful time and it was so nice to meet you all.... I felt a little bad about heading out so early before anyone was really awake, so we didnt get to say goodbye. But we needed to get home. The potluck was awesome. Everyones Airstreams were awesome. I loved seeing them. Of course after seeing Cam,s CCD im looking into my wallet to see what I can dig up. hehehe. Actually I have too much blood,sweat and tears into mine to get another one.
But again it was a wonderful time, Im so glad we were able to attend. We were talking on the way home that we are already ready for another one.
Thanks again for the great time and the chance to meet you'all.

It was our first time with hookups.. at first we thought it was a bit too civilized for us, but we loved it

Made it!

Made it home again, all in one piece. This was great fun, and it was really good to meet all the NorCal Airstreamers. A truly great bunch of people!
The potluck dinner was phenomenal, with roast, shrimp, chili, asparagus, salads, actually too much to even list. The setting was great also, right on the beach at Pismo. Many left to see a vintage car show in town during Saturday, and visitors and other campers came to check out the silver trailers.
I kept nice and comfy in my half done Overlander, and had much support in the form of blanket offers and a kick-a.. electric heater courtesy of caadoptees. My air matterss was comfy, and the tea kettle and fridge was really all I needed.
I hope that the next NorCal Rallye won't be too far away, both in time and distance!

Glad to hear that you and the U-Boat (possible name for the new rig) had a safe trip. If you go east some of us here in AZ could join in. Maybe along the Colorado River?

Thumbs up Awesome...Awesome....Awesome

I wholeheartedly concur with the sentiment that the NorCal Rally people are a special crowd. It has been said before- It really feels like you all are lifelong friends. We might not be lifelong friends but we are definitely lifetime friends. Hope to be ralling with you all until I am eighty!

Did we have fun or what? My only complaint is not a new one: where does the time go??? Such a bummer to have to leave that beautiful place. I felt like I was chronically short of time the entire weekend and I was. It sure is true: Time flies when you're having fun. (and what fun it was!)

I will PM everyone that owes me a check. I have a month before the big credit card bill arrives so everybody has plenty of time to get me their check. I will let everyone know what their balance is.

Tinsel- We want more! We want more! My potluck pics were all in the dark and they did not look good. Post more pics! Also, please send me pics via email: big.dee@mindspring.com.

Uwe & azflycaster- Hey, a December rally on the Colorado River??? Sounds very interesting and fun. I was in the desert last December so this could work for me. Anybody else interested?

Dee- I bet it was sad to come home and find all the silver bullets gone. But then again you had another day to walk on the beach so I am not feeling too bad for you.

Ed- It was great that you made the rally. You are too modest with your work on the trailer- it looked awesome. And your hard work is very obvious. I bet it looks even better next time. Also- first time with hook-ups? Wow!

Uwe- I was very impressed with how much work you have done (and still to go). You do fine work but I can't imagine how many hours you have in to it. Can't wait to see the progress next time.

Ron & Debbie- It was fun to have you as neighbors. Your MH is just fun to look at. And it was the favorite of my sister-in-law who fell in love with it. Hope you can join us again next time.

Thank you to all those that gave me left overs. How did you know that I love left overs? I wonder.

Thanks to Kip for "winning friends" at PCV and swinging us those nice sites.

Everyone, please post pics. I will shortly.

Thanks again to EVERYONE! You guys are the BEST!
