Food List

There hasn't been a food list and I am sure it is because Steve doesn't have the time to keep on top of this Rally. I am sure if everyone want to have a pot luck get together we can start making a list.

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?

Hey Now!

I may be away, and have limited time, but i am doing my best. I am in the classroom now (Just finished my homework), and wanted to see how CJ's grandchild was doing.

I usually start a food list a month out, and I guess we are close enough right now to do so. We thought about having our 500 gallon BBQ smoker trailer towed down to the campground for the good of the group. I don't have any problem doing this, but meat can get pricey to provide for the group. If anyone is interested in brisket, tri-tip, ribs, pork shoulder, or chickens from the smoker then we could figure something out. It could be purchased in bulk. I have plenty of hickory for the smoker.

We will post something later, but Amy makes some good food.

Steve

Steve, we'll be happy to pitch in for or bring three or four racks of ribs for the smoker -- if it works out that you can bring your smoker.

For the food list, please put us down for baked beans based on the recipe from Mike Mills' and his 17th Street Bar & Grill.

Thanks for mentioning the canoe trip as an option, however, we'll pass on the canoe trip.

Anxious to see you all again and meet some new folks ....

maccamper (Laird and Nancy) --
Sending this note tonight from the East Oklahoma City KOA on Choctaw Road near Choctaw and Harrah, OK.

Laird & Nancy, How do you like this Hot Oklahoma weather? Hope all is going well with you.

Steve, we know you are very very busy with you military and family and appreciate all the energy you put out in getting the Rallys setup. We are going to miss you the year your are going to be gone.

My grandson Gavin is doing well, much better than I would be. I called last night to talk to him and he was down the street playing. His wounds have to be washed every day as they want it to heal from the inside out. The Dog is in dog jail for 10 days. The owner had the choice of putting him in the garage for 10 days or the animal shelter. Thank you all for your prayers.

AC is OK so far; OK more than OK

CJ, so glad to hear your grandson is doing OK.

We are enjoying our stay in Oklahoma. We've spent many years in OK so we always enjoy being back among family and friends.

We're heading back towards RV Express in Marshfield, MO today for an overnight stay and then back to Bloomington, IL. The weather has been hot, hot and unusually humid.

Our AC is holding up fairly well so far, I will get on top of the trailer and clean the coils when we get back home, there's no telling when that was last done.

It helps that we have finally been able to extend the awning out and get some shade on one side of the trailer. Thanks to Dan, Jerry, Ron and Ted for helping show me how it's done at Moraine View. We were not able to get it extended there because the bottom mount on the leading arm started pulling out of the side of the trailer.

Thanks again for sending us the info on the local repair shops, hopefully by the time of the rally I will be fairly competent in installing RivNuts and can show interested folks how they are done. We also should have our new (used) awning up on the two front windows on the street side. We found a nice little Zip Dee at Colaw RV & Salvage.

See you soon.

Laird

Glad to hear your Oklahoma trip has been a good one.

Our trailer didn't come with an awning. Wish we could find a good used one. This is on my list of things to add to our A/S. We came by Colaw RV & Salvage on our way home from Branson at the spring rally. I called them to see if they had anything for our 69 A/S and they said they don't have trailers that OLD. Never though to ask about awnings. Do A/S have to have special awnings because of the ourside curve?

My daughter sent me photos of Gavins arms, I didn't know his left side (Ribs) were brused and scratched. I guess the great dane had him by the arm and his side as they have a pretty big mouth.

Have a safe trip home.

I am shocked! I think a dog that attacks a child for no reason should be put down by the owners or the city.
Glad to here he's doing better.

Let you all know Gavin is doing fine. The only thing he is griping about is they had to cut off his Durango, CO T-shirt I got him last year when I was on vacation. It was his favoriate. He want me to get another. Anyone going to Durango Co?

Good to hear he is well. I am leaving in 30 minutes for a four day field training exercise in the Nebraska heat. Saturday is the flight home, and I cannot get home soon enough. Then to finally get ready to camp!

Anyone else care to sound off on the BBQ issue?

Steve

We were at Colaw's just recently--couple of weeks ago. They didn't have anything with an awning that was in any good shape except maybe one long Airstream, don't remember which one it was. The awning looked to be in pretty good shape but the arms were bent. It was way too big for our Argosy. They have a lot of Excellas, mostly in really bad shape. One Bambi looks like it went thru the tornado, an Argosy and a few others but most of them are pretty weathered, unless they have gotten some more in since then.We got a couple of little pieces for our Argosy but most of what is left on these trailers is structural--panels, windows, some doors, etc, not much of anything inside of any of them. Few sinks, maybe, no cabinetry that is any good. Most of them have been pretty stripped already.

awnings at Colaw

We actually found the awning we bought at Colaw on a rack inside their building, not on one of the trailers outside. It is a window awning, so the arms were much smaller than it would be for a patio awning.

I don't know what year trailer our new (used) awning came off of, but it has curved arms so it should work fine over our windows. The patio awning arms may need to be more model year specific, perhaps someone more expertise than I could provide some insight.

You may be able to put an entire assembly together by taking an arm off one trailer and the roller assembly off another (or their rack of rollers). That's what we ended up doing, but we may have been just lucky.

Isadora is quite right, the trailers they have have been picked over pretty well. If you needed something generic like window curtain track, there is some of that kind of thing still available.
