Hey Marty,

I was just going to bring the small plastic flags on wooden sticks to mark the sites of the rally goers. This was for any SOBs that may be coming (I know of one so far), and just to have something nice for everyone.

Steve

We are getting all excited about the up coming rally. James took the A/S to the RV place in Chickasha, OK to have the AC checked. There must be a leak as we had freon put in last year. There is one of the drums that got hot the last time out and we have to have some new belly skin cut and crimped to fit the back under the black tank. All of James's fancy pex work has water going from front to back without a leak. Thank God. Haven't been able to test the new hotwater tank as he has the thermostat pulled out of the oven. It has been sent off somewhere to see if it can be repaired. If not that means a new oven, which may have to wait till next year. He is going to put a shut off valve on the oven so he can turn the gas off to it. This way he can test the hotwater tank. The frig works great on elect never checked it on propane and we have never fired up the heater. Hope we won't need the heater in Sept. HEE HEE The guy at the RV place went out and looked in our A/S and said it was the best he has seen in our area and any A/S he has worked on. It is in better shape than the any 69 he has seen. "I hope so with all the work we have done". "I just wish the oven worked I wanted to bake cookies at the Rally".

Jim and Sandy thanks for offering your oven to bake some cookies.

James just called and the thermostat is in. ONLY cost $106.00 to have it rebuilt or what ever they do for 39 year old thermostats. Now my coppertone oven can go for another 39 years.

CJ,

It may be hot enough in August to just set the batter out on top of your trailer to bake them

If not, other like Jim and Sandy have ovens, or there are those kool little stove/oven combos at walmart/cabelas that run off of propane for cheap $$.

Hey All,

I just wanted to see if there was much interest for a float trip on Saturday of this rally. Reservations are required for groups of 10 or more. The float is 5 miles, and is expected to go from 3-5 hours depending on the speed of canoes or rafts.

Rates:

Canoe for two people $35.00
Canoe for three people $40.00
Raft for six people $120.00
Raft for eight People $160.00

My folks are going to come down on Saturday foe the float and the evening festivities. Anyone else interested please let me know so I can begin to get numbers in my head.

On Edit: I just called the state park for more information regarding the site availability. Currently, there are the following sites that offer electric service in Section 2 (21-25, 31, 33, 39, 42, 44-47, and 49-52). Another bonus is that if you have additional people who would dare brave this trip in a tent, they can camp for free on your RV area as long as the total number of people doesn't exceed six souls. Get those reservations in....we're gonna have a blast.

Steve

FYI, Rebuilt thermostat for the oven is installed. Did some baking and it is about 25 degrees to hot. James is going to try and tweek it. The air conditioner has new freon and putting out 60 degree air. Sunday worked on finishing up the curtains. James tried to light the new hotwater tank and the pilot light keeps going out. He is talking about taking it back to the RV place to see what is wrong. We still have little things to do to finish up the trailer a rivet here and rivet there.

Spent the evening at Childrens hospital in Oklahoma City, OK as one of our twin grandsons (Gavin) got attached by a great dane. One arm has punctures and a 1" slice. The right arm has about a 4" cut almost to the bone. They were planned to sew this one up, they kept him over night, Devin spent the night with us. Doctors don't feel there is any nerve or muscle damage. We will know more in the weeks to come.

CJ,

Sorry to hear about this. Hope he pulls through without anything.

Oh yeah...I am in Nebraska (Outside Omaha) at a military school. All I can say is that I have a pretty busy schedule that starts at 5 AM, and I usually leave class around 930-10 PM. We are doing alot of stuff that is familiar, but that we have not had to be evaluated on. The problem is that there is so much to do, and very little time to read everything. You have to manage time very well, and focus on the task at hand. I keep saying it will be over in 10 more days.

I rarely call home since I am so busy, and this post is a rare opportunity for me.

We can't wait for the rally, even if nobody was interested in going on the float. We may go on our own.

See ya'll later.

Goodbye from Nebraska.

Steve

Gavin is doing well, Monday the Dr's flushed out his wounds and made an appt to see him next week. James to Devin fishing and he cought a 1 1/2 lb catfish.

James also got the new hot water tank working. Apparently there was something in the old gas line he hooked up to because he installed a new line from the tank to the old hookup. He said the new line origional was open but it was blocked. He cleared the line and all is working great. Hot water, oh did I fail to mention he has the cold line on the hot and the hot on the cold at both sinks. HEE HEE

We are excited!

We are excited about the Rally! Although we have been on the forum for about a year this will be our 1st Rally!

Last year for the September Rally my husbands mother died and we had to go to American Samoa for 3 weeks. For the spring rally my husband had a total hip replacement so we missed it AND our AS was/is gutted.

Just as we finished the plumbing repairs and floating floor our cabinet man has taken off to Colorado for a much needed vacation and won't be back until the 21st. That leaves us about 4 weeks to get the kitchen in and the air running. I will put the mattress from our spare bedroom in there if I have to but WE ARE COMING finished or not!

Is there a food list for Sat. night?
Oh yes . . one other thing. . . do you guy's drink?

OMG! So sorry to hear about your grandson. That poor little soul! What a tramatic experience for anyone to have to go through. I hope the dog was "Taken care of" . How old are your grandsons.

Thanks for the info Steve. With Patty's bad knees, we pretty much have given up float trips so we will have to pass on this.

Gavin

The twin grandsons are 9yr. Found out today apparently the animal control only kept the dog 24 hours to verify it was up on it's shots. I bet if it had been a pit bull dog they would still have it. Needless to say the dog is back with its owners. We are glad he didn't have any broken bones. Kids just bounce back and keep on going.
