Roll On Airstream Trailer... Roll On!

Don, That's a new version of Alabama's hit "Roll-On" that I'm working on! If you decide on the Route 66 trip routing you can jump onto I-74 East at Bloomington, IL Then head east thru Indiana and Pick up I-70 out of Indianapolis into Ohio. Then north on I-75 for a short time to JC and the "Mothership!" Did I mention the Midwest Forums Rally at Moraine View? The Rally page gives very clear directions to the campgrounds. Jack C. always says come as you are... trailer or sans trailer. It is in June (8,9, and 10th) this year. I am hoping to make an appearance this year even if the "Landshark" isn't ready to Roll-On! Ed

Sure will. If I had a better sense of where you might be and when I might even be able to join your righteous convoy good buddy. C'mon.

Anyone else on the east coast interested in going out to the mothership and caravanning back in this here convoy?

NorCal Bambi: Depending on the dates you go, I would like to join you for part of the caravan.
Did someone say something about taking Coors east of the Mississipi river?
SnorkyII on the side! AKA "The PencilPusher" during the late 70s when I had trucks.

Another ROADTRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

Wow - Another RoadTrip sounds KILLER!!!!

Having one S-L (sister-in-law) birth and S-L Wedding, I know that there is likely to be A LOTTTTTT of actvity in the midwest this summer for us, and why should'nt ALL of you be invitied along???????

Sister-in-law will be wedded on Sept 1st in Terra Haute.

There is also a baby shower that will take place in mid June. - This is a seperate SIL and she lives in TN, south of Nashville.

There are life anchors to ABQ (wife is graduatin from a program that requires long hoods and sashes!!!! - MDP) so that will keep me close to home around June 9th.

Where can we do a rally (BUDDY, WBCCI, ETC) that will energise these folks that have things here or there, but to really set up a 'ONE' or counts & gets them all to rally around and make it the biggest thing that wasn't...!Just a thought! There HAS TO BE one (or two) that brings the ASF's style to the front!!!!!??!!!!!!!!!! East/West/North/South rally that we can set up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!? Get those thinking caps on.

Sounds like a terrific idea!
Once your route is posted I'd love to join the caravan, if only for a short spell.

Just got back from Sacramento to pick Airstream interior parts that were a gift. And what a great gift. And most of just met two really great people. They said they might make it to Cassine Ranch Rally even though their airstream is not on the road yet. I told them that once one has Aluminum stains on their hands they will always be welcome. C'Back.
Don

As soon as I get some lunch I'll answer all the great people who responded while we were gone.
Out' Good, Buddy
Don

NorCal Bambi this sounds like a great idea. When You leave Jackson Center a great stop to make for the night that I recomend is http://www.pennwood .org .org This is approx. 250 from NYC. I can highly recomend this Airstream only park.

Thanks for the encouragement, all!

Howdy all!

Thanks for the encouragement... hope we can hook up with all of you at some point! As we get further along we will look at the weather and that may help us decide on our departure date as well as route! Our initial thinking is to head a southerly route on the way to NY at least until we get to midwest to then head up to the Mothership... and return a northerly route as the temperature warms.

Any suggestions out there about the weather for May, June, July? The only times we have traveled in the midwest or east has been in the middle of summer... so not sure what we might expect. Hope to miss "tornado ally" activity or hailstorms and all that other stuff we don't get out here in California. We just have fire and brimstone here... [aka, earthquakes and forest fires]

Still looking for interesting places to camp past the rockies... Thanks for the link to the Virginia site looks nice! Other ideas out there?

Thanks for all the responses, love to hear your ideas!

Mrs. NorCal Bambi (traveling in S Tardis)

I can second that recommendation. The stopover is slightly less great now, however, ever since I tore up their beautifully manicured lawn on my maiden voyage last August when I neglected to raise the jack.

The people there couldn't have been nicer.
