How far are you from Colin's? You must be somewhat closer, though he's spitting distance from Canada! Maybe we should start calling him "Dr. Hyde" (doctor of airstreamology)! We're glad he gave us a straight story--we'd had suspicions (that's why I pulled off the banana wrap) but nobody could answer our questions last year.

The staff there must have loved it when all of you you pulled up your vintage trailers into the IKEA lot! That store just seems to be a mecca for airstreamers--I heard of three different field trips, including the one I went on! Mabe next year we could have an organized attack there? BTW--What did you end up getting?

Mary

267 Miles

Mary,

We are 267 miles from Colin via the I-88, I-90, I-87 corridor, or about 225 through the Adirondacks. We picked up a 30 x 73 birch butcher block to replace the 26x59 counter top in the Caravel. Holes will be cut for the sink, and stove, and the all birch look will go nicely in the Caravel with the Mahogany.

A corner was damaged, and thus a further 20% discount (~$50) for it. I did not need the corner anyway.

Rob

That IKEA pic is too funny! That must have got a few (admiring) glances! BTW--Last year's IKEA spring seasonal catalog had a picture of a very odd European variant of an Airstream--aluminum, roundish, and tiny!

Just posted more pics to the WBCCI forum--tried to post as many pics of the folks as I had--though I know now that I missed some people. Got to get better with using my flash--but overall, I'm happy with my results. I still have a lot of scenic pictures of trailers to post, but they will come. Here's one!

CBR Photos

My photos from the 2005 CBR, Washington, D.C. and the Parade can be found here:
http://www.pfredd.com/gallery

Note these are low resolution, reduced size copies for the web. If you want full sized high resolution versions of any of them, just let me know.

Hereis a panorama I made from photos taken from on top of the "Command Center" motorhome:



Enjoy!

Dave

Great shot, Dave!

There's a whole lot of pics of the rally, there! I didn't know you went in to see the parade. The pics of the Cherry Blossoms down by the tidal pool are super! I haven't looked at all the rest of the pics carefully (on my break at work) but I will do so tonight!

Central NY Pageant of Bands Rally

I'll also be hosting the second annual WDCU WBCCI Pageant of Bands Rally this year. Here's a little info about it. 1.5 mile parade route, approximately 80 high school marching bands.

JUNE
Pageant of Bands Rally 2006
North Norwich, NY 13814
June 1-4, 2006
Hosted by: Rob and Zoe’ Baker
Email: robandzoe@adelphia.net
Rally electric and water. Come full and empty. No limit on units, but after 35 units, most likely a boon-docking rally for those above that, with ability to fill and charge during the rally. Same location as last year. I hope to have a few Airstreams with the flags flying in the Parade this year, Stewart? Hunt? Big Band sound on Saturday night - hopefully.
