Cool Trout Lake Pictures

I took some pictures and will attempt to post them tonight. We had a good time and appreciate all the work that Janet and Stephanie did to coordinate the rally. Was fun to go camping with our new (old) Airstream. We are considering the fall rally at the coast, but it will depend on my work schedule and trips.

So.... how many watermelons does it take to supply a forum rally?
hmm....

We had a great time - in fact we never took the camera out of the trailer! (no time).
Pictures would be great....
I was inspired by Mel and Lees rehab on the Safari and amazed at how much progress Chris has made on the caravel project. It is astonishing that AS folks just stop by - but they do and it's wonderful to meet 'em all.

We are going to make the BYOM BBQ a regular event - I have never seen steaks the size of those brought by Bob and Molly .... and Raspberry Wasco - is an ethereal berry concoction. I had my first Motorhome tour! Hats off to Christie for baking yummy potatoes for 16+ folks in her TT oven - that takes skill!

Michelle (cello player) has the hots for all your small trailers as well as Jerry and Letas teardrop but she most especially loved Jim and Cheryl's CCD and the pillows to go with....she was muttering something about Airstreams and Fabergé eggs....

Can't wait for the next one... Did anyone get to the ice caves?

In what is sadly becoming a tradition I managed to leave something important at home - my hiking boots (which were sitting by the door waiting for us when we returned). So Although we made it to the mouth of the ice caves, we didn't actually dare wander in since I only had sandals on. We made it to the waterfalls, and tried to make it to the lava bed but we turned back when the road got bumpy. We decided we would rather spend the afternoon lounging around camp than bumping down a dusty dirt road!

It was great that everyone showed up and pitched in and it just spontaneously turned into a really fun rally. I really enjoyed meeting everyone new, especially herbigrf who are practically our neighbors! And of course it was great to see all our old friends again. We even had some Airstreamers who couldn't stay, but just dropped by Saturday afternoon to say hi!

I'll be glad to take some credit for yet another fun weekend, but I hate to give away the secret - it's no trouble at all! Just give Airstreamers a place to gather, and a party breaks out!

We had a stupendous time.....arrived a day early to check out the area, then greeted everyone as they arrived! It was a fun CG (low key), even tho we were outnumbered by river runners! I had a great time at the campfire strummin' my guitar and botching all the words to the few songs I know! It was my first time to see an AS MH, and an Ebay purchase to boot......thanks WascoBob & Molly for the tour!
We were also impressed with Chris's Caravel and Mel and Lee's Safari....too cute !
I felt embarrassed that I asked Gary to check out my electrical system because I wasn't getting power from my generator.......turns out I didn't have a good connection from my pigtail into the genset Thanks Gary for your help.....I owe you one. Thanks too, for the great Sunday breakfast!

We also made it to the ice caves, but found it too cold (if you can believe it in the middle of July) to make the tour......it must have been 30 degrees in there!

Here are a few pics of the rally, including Janet's trio performing at the Arts Festival. Sweet sound!

A Great ! weekend

Hi all, Theo and I made most of the trek thru the ice caves. There is ice down there ! not too much, however. We also went to see Langfield Falls. Very nice indeed. Thanks to Janet and Gary for bringing the BBQ and for the breakfast ! It was wonderful. Your Trio sounds great ! I really like the cello. Michelle did a really great solo at the end of the evening on Saturday. She is a very talented cello player.

Thanks to Christie for baking the taters in her oven. I didn't realize that until Janet posted it. That does take skill ! Ron I really like your 31 footer. It is a nice unit.

I really like Bob and Mollys' moho. It was a sweet find for sure. Those steaks were great. I did manage to get a bite of them along with all the other great foods there.

Lee and Mels Safari is super cool ! Plus they have a really great vintage tow vehicle, a 1973 F 250 4 x 4. great combo. Makes me want another AS to work on while I camp in the Caravel ! Shhhh......did I just say that ack ! I'll probably upgrade in the next 2 years. I really like the room the Safari has in it. My neighbors are gonna shoot me !

Jerry and Leta, keep me up to date on your Caravel project. If I can help out let me know. Shoot us some pics of your project. Your teardrop was really cool. I am afraid I skipped that step and went right from tenting to a full on TT.

When I bought my Caravel I had no idea that I would meet such a great group of folks. My friend Theo had a great time as well. He is going to see if he can make it to Beverly beach. We are going to see about getting a projector that hooks to the laptop PC so we can give slide show of our trip back east. I am hoping to meet some of the other forum members on the trip back to Wisconsin. I'll post a tenative intinerary when the date gets closer.

What else can I say ? I was quite possibly the best camping trip I have had ever. Even tho I slept on the floor in my half done Caravel. I feel like I am a very lucky man, having met such a great group here on the forums.

I will add one note, replacing the axle is by far the best thing I have done on this project. I left some things out on purpose before I left. Things that would easily tip over or walk across the floor. When I got home, they were just as I had left them. I didn't baby it either. I put it thru its paces on the way home. I am convinced that if you buy a vintage unit and the axle is questionable, replace it, the difference will be worth the money hands down.

If anyone wants copies of the pics that Theo and I have taken just PM me with your regular email addy and I will send you the whole lot.

Thats about it for now. Have a good week and lets rally again soon !

Anything coming up inbetween now and October ? I am goin on a shakedown trip in about 3 weeks or so. Does anyone want to organize something ? Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Thanks to all that attended, stopped by, it was good to meet you.

Chris

Thank you all for a great time!

What a great camping trip and it was wonderful to meet all of you! Janet and Gary, thanks so much for all the work you put into this trip - I'm just sorry we weren't able to stay and see your trio at the festival (we were driving and driving and driving - we took what felt like the extra long route home!) We're really looking forward to meeting up with y'all again!

We went to the ice caves, but didn't venture too far in as we didn't have our headlamps (those are now on the list to live permanently in the trailer!) We also checked out the natural bridges (just a mile or so past the ice caves). I'll post some pictures once I get them organized.

Thanks again - you guys are great!

Mel

Wish we had stayed

We had a great time meeting all of you. Really enjoyed touring your Airstreams. Thank you. Gave us some new ideas for our little project. We are new to all of this and still have lots to learn. Sorry we missed out on the Bar-b-que and the music. Hope to make the next one.

Thanks again for a great afternoon.

Debra and Nathan

Potatoes

My wife wants to clarify that she did not cook the potatoes. They must have been cooked by gremlins. She also is missing one of her white mel mack plates. It comes from an old set of dishes that she bought in an antique store to match our vintage trailer.
I am selling our 72 SOB is you know someone that wants something other than an Airstream.

Potato Confession

MOLLY finally confessed that she did indeed make the SCALLOPED SPUDDIES, as well as the potato bread and the "Rasberries Wasco''.

I checked the motorhome and did not find your dish Christy. Sorry!

Molly and I and ofcourse the boys ( Hank and Otto), really enjoyed meeting everyone and camping with yall. We felt very welcome and are looking forward to seeing most or all of you at Beverly Beach in October.

In the mean time, have fun and keep the shiny side up!!!
