Smile Great time

Mike and I enjoyed meeting all of you who attended the rally this weekend in NM.

The open house was great to see everyone's home, new and older and in all stages of resoration. Thanks for allowing us in.

Now I am scared, I just came back from the library with all these books on fulltiming...

I got some nice pictures from the weekend and I have sent them to Shari, hopefully she will post in the best place. I have a great picture of Peter so all can see this guy. Nice one too of John.

See ya!

TinCanSue and Mike!

What a great rally! Jean and I both really enjoyed meeting everyone. We finally tore ourselves away from Lake Heron on Monday and are now in an RV park in Moab, UT.
We will stay here a few days, then on to Montana. Hope everyone has a great summer.

This was our first rally in our first trailer on its first trip. We towed the 67 A/S TW 800 miles over 10000 + foot passes in strong gusty winds (you had to lean to stand). It was all uneventfull and completly worth it.

A friend told me that, "You have to surround yourself with good people to be happy." We were very happy at the rally.

Great time

We had a great time as well. Nice to meet folks from the forum and put faces with the names. In Peter's case though I'm still not sure...

This event will be hard to beat: the nightly social hour was longer each evening, we felt right at home inside everyone's rig during the open house, and I'm still full from the the potluck. John was the best host and Shari was the greatest organizer, although neither one will admit it.

Say, Don from east TX, when are you gonna get a better tow rig?

Yeah - we really really really really had a great time. Amazing we gathered as only knowing each other from this list and left as what I'm sure will be lifetime friends - really cool.

Now I sit in an ugly motel room in Las Vegas NM for a work project thing thinking about my next Airstream trip.

Les, I passed you on the highway between Durango and Pagosa this morning. Moab - its one of my very favorite places - how bout all meeting there sometime??

Brad - looked up your number last night - in 1961 it was registered to someone by the name of Hainline - for some reason the address or first names do not appear in the book. I'm going through page by page because I have found typos. If I don't find it you can check with the secretarial services in Jackson Center - they have all the books ever printed. I won't forget to send you the catalog.

Hey guys ~

Since the airstreamphotos.com is still not up to speed from "the crash of 2003", I'm building a webpage of our pictures. If anybody has some they would like to share, zip them up and send them to me at maxwell@insideout-design.net and I will include them ~

Shari

Thumbs up Nice Job!

Shari, What a great 'movie' of the rally, captions, et al. Thanks for supplying the site space. Really cute!

Thanks to Rob and Shari for the wonderful Grand Marnier french toast breakfast, her organization of getting us all there and having so much fun.

TinCanSue and Mike

Bugs

On a different topic....

Anyone @ the ralley get small bug bites that are still red?

I have them mostly on my legs however, the red spots are on my arms and back of my neck.

What the heck are those critters?

Question Maybe Chiggers?

But Rob thinks they are something else...little black flying bugs (he saw the little $*#%@+&'s biting him!), whereas Chiggers are little red crawling bugs...so who knows? But they itch like CRAZY!!!

Well,

So many people! We've been outdone. It looks like twice the amount at our Austin Forum meet in March, but of course you can't count Peter, he belongs to us. Weather looked great! Good timing as well, early in the summer, last time I went west everything was on fire, got to be a drag! Someday this may be compared to the first WBCCI International, wherever it was I know it was small and grew and grew. How many feet were you all at? The only thing I hate about the mountains is getting over the altitude headaches. Where's that pic of your host, John??

Chas
