Deb,
I beat you signing up by a whopping 2 hours and 8 minutes so I was a little slow myself. I did not know the RSVP was up there until I looked this afternoon.

Thanks for the info.

Umm, actually I get it at a place like Out Of Doors Mart...
Seriously, what we use is one of two products, depending on how grungy and greasy the fan is. I either use a product called Reliable1, or RV-Do. Available at finer RV supply stores everywhere...

I hope to make it with my GT, it depends on my belly pan progress. It is slow but steady at this point but have not done any banana wrapping yet! I would so enjoy meeting other Airstreamers, not too many people understand what I am talking about when they ask me how I spend my time.

If you would put that on your list of things to bring from ODM, we would be grateful. Ours is fairly bad, so whatever you think is best.

Thanks,


Maggie

Oh my goodness, I did not RSVP, is it too late? Can someone point out the info as I am not seeing it? Thanks!

If you've made a reservation and posted here, I'm sure you're good.

Scroll down a bit and find the post where someone included a link to the RSVP place. Follow the directions.

See you there,


Maggie

Suzy & I hope to make it to the gathering. Early in the week we will be visiting friends in Spartanburg, SC & hope to head up to the Smokies from there. Since we don't know definitely our time frame for our visit with our friends, we aren't booking yet.

I've been following the Fantastic Fan discussion (cleaning one, that is).

Since our AS is still very new to us, we've been going through it and cleaning, scrubbing, dusting, etc. Not that the last PO left it in bad shape, because it wasn't just tidying up a bit.

We're lucky enough to have the Pop and Lock screens (I think that is what they are called) on our FFs. So, cleaning them is pretty simple as there are no screws to deal with. If you don't have these they are probably worth the expense to get rid of the hassle of screws to remove and refasten the screens.

As for cleaning the fan itself, I found that either an all purpose cleaner or a glass cleaner (since we have two fans I tried different products) worked fine. I sprayed and wiped each blade individually one by one. That was tedious and uncomfortable because I was reaching above my head and my shoulders got tired, especially because I did each fan twice, but it produced pretty good results.

Like Doug and Maggie I was hoping there might be a way to remove the blade and thus get above it as well, but I didn't see a way to do it and I guess my assumption that it was not made to be removed, was correct. To bad, it would definitely make it easier to clean and allow for a more thorough job.

Pete

Somehow I went to the RSVP page when I logged on yesterday, I don;t even know exactly how that happened. I was probably linking in from an email I received. Here is a real newbie question. How would one know there is an RSVP page and where to find it?

I certainly don't want to turn this into a Fantastic Vent cleaning thread, but here are a couple of links I found at fantasticvent.com that may be of interest.

Pop-N-Lock Screens and How to clean a Fantastic Fan. It takes a bit of work, but the blade can be removed.

Phyllis and I are really looking forward to meeting everyone, and I'm looking forward to seeing Steve and Di's jazzy belt line LEDs.

We are planning to pack Thursday night, and leave here by 9am or earlier, stopping for breakfast. We don't know how long the drive will be, but we are guesstimating 5-6 hrs., so hoping to be there by 3pm. Is there a check-in time that we can't get in before?

Paula, are you still looking for another DO? If so, I have an extra footed DO you can use while there if you'd like. Just let me know and I'll bring it along; it is a little larger one (a Lodge).

Thanks, AirHeadsRus, for the reminder.

Deb
If it's not too much trouble, bring the DO along. We can always make biscuits or cornbread or maybe oatmeal for breakfast. I used to think I hated oatmeal until I started eating steel cut - takes 30 minutes to cook - with added dried fruit. It's still sticky, but you'll never eat instant rolled oats again! (I buy it at the local feed and grain store, so I have plenty.)

I hear the apples aren't too good on the trees in the campground, so I'll look for a roadside stand somewhere to buy fresh ones. Anyone coming through Winchester VA could also find some.

Go to Portal:

Go to bottom of Portal Page See list of upcoming Rallies

Click on Virginia Highland Haven - Casual

Read and Follow the bouncing Ball - Click on YES, MAYBE or NO, add a comment if you wish and Enter!

See you there! Also DO call Va Highland Haven and make reservations - they say they have plenty of spaces but best to make sure. They DO NOT take credit cards so you'll have to pay by check or cash. Also Terry (Overlander63) will probably NOT be able to take credit cards for Out of Doors Mart at the Rally - So if you want to order anything on credit, call OODM before the rally and order it there with Terry delivering it - or of course take cash.

Wow. This is the first time this year I've attended a rally and I'm so pleased to meet new friends and reconnect with old ones! Thanks a billion for coming!

Paula

I hope you can make it to the rally. Come even if you have to bring an aluminum (or nylon) tent. Nice to have a TW owner not to far from Lynchburg. Anytime you want to talk about Aistreams, just give me a holler. Believe me I know what you mean about folks not understanding your passion.

My son live is C'ville, so I get up there on a sorta regular basis.
