Fantastic Rally!!

Hi All,
Got home last night at 3 am. Took 3 days to get out there, and only 2 coming back...I guess that is because it's down hill all the way to Georgia.
What a rally! Information exchange! Nice People to spend some time with. I really am looking forward to next year. Hope to see you there and some new faces. Thanks to all that made this possible.

Levon

Thanks to Ken and all the seminar presenters for an interesting weekend- learned a lot and met some nice folks. Suggestion for next years attendees: Point the nozzle of a sand blaster at all your window, door, and vent gaskets. If only a cup or 2 of sand gets inside, I'd say you're good to go!
A few pics: the campground early one windless morning; the spanish mission at Quarai; the Blue Hole in Santa Rosa. No pics of the hot springs near Las Vegas, but also really enjoyed those. Nice trip!

good looking couple

This set-up was probably my favorite, love the 2-tone exterior. I believe the trailer is a "Va-Ka-Shun-Ette", !st time I'd heard of that brand.

Just now able to upload some photos of the rally. I sure had a great time meeting new faces and getting re-acquainted with some old friends. The demos, seminars and workshops I witnessed were informative and well done. Thanks to all those who presented and Ken, our organizer and rally host. He even got in a little drilling out of rivets time. We put new side panels and put in two Fantastic Fans on Uwe's '58 FC. The last pic shows the replaced panel.

Thank you so much!

I just got back from a mini vacation of mountain biking in Moab - what a GREAT PLACE!

I don't know where to begin with the thank you's for this rally.

First is to all that participated in this great event - we can plan a great rally but if no one shows up....... So thank you so much for coming to this rally, you make it an absolute pleasure to put on this event!

Thank you to all the presenters - we recruit professionals with extensive knowledge of their subject so to give a learning experience of the right way to do things - these folks donate their time for the benefit of the participants - my special thanks goes to Area 63 Productions for taking not only the time to come all the way from California, but for dragging a trailer cross the country so that we could tear it apart and put it back together again - seeing a panel come off and put back on is worth a gazillion words - that still would not describe the process.

Then there are the sponsors - we received thousands of dollars in donated goods and services - all for the benefit of this rally - Airparts, Airstream Life, Area 63 productions, Best Converter, Camping World, Cyclo Industries, Artstream, Enchanted Trails RV Resort, Fantastic Vent Genuine Aircraft Parts, Jestco Polishing Products, Master Tech RV (Lewster), Out-of-doors Mart, Trail Tire and Wheel and last but not least, Vintage Trailer Supply

The rally is over, but we will still be busy thanking all these great sponsors and if you get a minute, please thank them too!

Then there is the organizing committee for this rally - a GREAT event cannot happen without a GREAT organizing committee - I don't know if I can say enough to a team that really works well together - the amount of work that Uwe, Jackie, Louie, Kip, Jim and Ellyn - the countless hours that were put in to make this a well organized event - Each of you contributed an amazing amount of time to make this a great success - These folks are PROS!!!

Ken J. - Two buddies that attended from Central Texas just COULD NOT stop talking about how much they learned and how much fun they had. I heard their wives also had a blast. One friend contracted a serious case of the vintage bug while inside your big tent (what a GREAT IDEA that was!) and is now sniffing around for a 13 panel ~ all due to the wonderful event ya'll put on. I sure hope I can attend next year! Kudos on a job obviously VERY well done.

Whit - we hope you can attend next year too - yeah I don't think there's an Airstream sitting in a field that is safe after this rally

John - great pics - thanks!

Sorry these took so long, Ken!

If anyone would like to view, in no particular order, some of the pictures from the rally here - Picasa Web Albums - j - 2009 AS VRR

Still working on getting the videos "out of the can" and onto a web page for any interested parties to see....

We had a great time! Thanks to all!

Best,

Saw what appears to be 3 vintage Bambis sitting in a parking lot across from KMART on Broadway in Tucson, looked like they were just stored there??? Anyone have a clue on them?
