THANK YOU, Tim

Your trailer signs were/ARE truly AWESOME.

we were SO BUMMED to come down there without our trailer, but when we pulled our truck into the assigned lot, poured our chocolate milk in to our EXTREMELY CLASSY palm tree drink "hiders".... and set up our two measly lawn chairs, it really MADE MY DAY to see my sign.

How WONDERFUL!

I'm taking it everywhere with us. Our SOB friends will DIE DIE DIE.

Thank you so much!

LOVE the t-shirts.. we stopped at several antique malls on the way home and they got a good amount of attention!

I bought one for my son, Eric, and his friend, Robert, at the Group Home. I told them about it on the phone tonight, and Eric said :

"finally got me that trailer trash shirt you've been threatening me with, aye?"

I'm mailing them out tomorrow. the guys will LOVE them.

WOW! Those Forum name signs are awesome! Please give more details. What are they made out of? How were they made? Very jealous.

You guys certainly set the standard for Forum Rallies.

We're safely home after a six hour drive, we've parked, left everything to unpack until tomorrow, greeted kids and grandkids with marvelous new whirly-gigs (thanks, Ron and Tony!), hugged our dog, and plopped! What a fun weekend we had with everyone. We had never seen even four AS's in a campground before, and we were part of a HUGE gathering of them! And we even got to open doors and tour through them all! We add our voices thanking all of you who made personal contributions to the gathering. Yes, our keys now are on the key chain, our whirly gig is twirling in the back garden, our sign will be a keepsake, the t's will go on our trip in July, and the memories are priceless. Putting faces with names will make the Forum even more enjoyable. It's simply amazing that a tentative post on this forum a year ago could have led us to an Airstream of our own and the friends that now go with that. Hope this finds everyone home, safe, and looking forward to the next road trip with your Airstreams! By the way, on our way home today, we took a side trip to New Salem (an Illinois historic site) that is just outside of Springfield. New Salem is an 1830's reconstructed village where Abraham Lincoln lived and worked as a young man before his adult political life. The site is beautifully done and well worth the time if you have the opportunity to visit. I was thinking of all the young families at the rally and imagining how the children would enjoy an afternoon in this walk-back in time!

You shoudl have seen the trailers all lined up, with matching identifying signs. It was really KEWL.

Of course it woudl have been MUCH nicer if there hadn't been a gaping HOLE in the spot WE were supposed to be in!

I'll love my sign FOREVER!

This was our first rally and is my first post. We had a great time. Everyone was class A and all of the coach's we toured were fabulous. Although we were in the unknown site due to my not registering correctly we were never alone. Thanks to everyone for everything. Hope to be doing it again and often.

Too cool

Wow!!
I have to say that it was one great weekend. Thanks to all for the great time. I love the signs and key chains. The ID cards are a gas too. I guess I'm a card carring member now.

The site signs are a really neat idea. It has helped me to keep straight the names that I am able to remember straight with the faces and trailers. I'm still working on a few, sorry about the short term memory problems.

Jack you pulled off one great weekend!!

The kids had a great time and (most important) Lori had a great time. You are one special group of people.
I'm thinking "October fest in the woods" has to be thought about. I just may start a thread about that.............. Once a year is a long time to wait....

I have a few photos to post, but will wait till later when I can sort out the documentation ones from the general ones.

Yowza!

Woke up this morning with a terrible case of Post Rally Depression. So I took an unbearably hot shower, put on my smelly t-shirt, posted my sign on the lawn with my wirlygigs, clenched my keychain in my fist (thanks so much for the gifts everyone!), poured myself a chocolate milk and sat on my front lawn and had a good cry. Oh, woas me.

My Jack, Eric, and Roger Voodoo dolls are now sleeping comfortably in a bed of soft satin. They all had manicures, pedicures, and masages before I put them down for their naps. I have completely feng shuied the torture chamber and I'm playing some nice relaxing new age music and burning Chamomile candles. Tomorrow I thought I'd treat them to facials.... Wait a second.....Who am I? am I going soft? I'm......[quiver] nice.......but how the heck am I supposed to spear them with knitting needles when I now know them to be good, kind, fun individuals? Yikes.......What kind of monster have I become? Is there a 12 step program for kindness? I'm sure this will go away. I'll be back to torturing them......I hope......soon. Well, one good thing....don't have any problem torturing my new Ron Tincanluv doll. Strange......where is that knitting needle? Te he....

We had so much fun. I wish I had been able to hang around the campfire longer. Two kids make things a challenge. Plus - what a surprise to have my favorite cousin show up in their brand new-to-them Airstream! Do I get some sort of gift for converting them? She is now one of the "Airstream Wives"

I have to say - it was great to meet a bunch of people, some I had only met once, maybe twice, and most never before and feel like I was with a group of old friends.....all of this niceness is giving me hives. I sure wish I had something bad to say, but search as I may, there just isn't anything.

Thanks everyone! Let's do it again soon.

Thanks!

Thanks to all for the gifts, we had a nice time.

Although we didn't spend tons of time visiting everyone, we enjoyed the rally.
Wanted to make sure mom was happy, etc...She LOVED the birthday sign made by TCL, that was great! And...the birthday cake was a real hit!

Thanks to everyone who helped us with questions/answers/advice!

Airscream is COOL with us

Airscream, if it comes about, should probably happen MID-October due to upcoming weather.

Either that, or everyone needs to safety check their furnaces for working order. hard to think about that today, though! It's so hot and humid.
