Smile Leak Pressure Test

Hey, Steve, James and I worked on our A/S over the warm weekend to seal all the leaks. We plan on seeing you at the Texas Rally in Feb.

I have contacted GStephens about it, and don't want to being it up much in case I am acting too much like a solicitor.

Hopefully...it will all work out!!!

CJ of Okla, did Steve leak test your trailer while you were at the Branson Rally so that you would know where your leaks were? On another note, Whitsend is beside himself that you decided to come down for this rally.

Leak Test

Yes our trailer was the one Steve tested for leaks. Wasn't bad for a 39 year old A/S. As we had put all new seals on all the windows they were tight. There was bubbles around the bottom of the front door, possiable the door is warped? Lots of bubbles out of the tail lights, don't think we can fix that. James is talking about changing out the light with LED. If he does that maybe we can seal behind the cans. All the running lights made bubbles, they are sealed on the top but the old O-ring that wraps around the wiring is probably wore out. We will have to unrivet all the lights and Vulkem those O-rings to seal the hole. There was one leak on the front right hand corner where we had removed the old awning, but other than that she did pretty good. Steve said if we would bring our A/S to Texas he would test her again to see if we missed any places.

We enjoyed meeting Whitsend and his wife. Showed off our American Bashkir Curly Horses. Our horses are just starting to put on their winter coats. Before long they will look like horses with poodle coats.

I have to get in gear and send in my reg for the Rally.

Thanks for identifying the type of horse flesh that you raise. Jim couldn't remember to save his life what breed you raise when he tried to tell me about them. Bring some pictures if you wouldn't mind. I'd like to see their pictures. I've had Hancock bred Quarter Horses all my life. My brother breeds and raises mules and Quarter horses. He currently has over 100. I've sold most of mine so that I can travel. It is difficult to travel and have livestock back home. Competent help is virtually impossible to find. Looking forward to spending some time with you at the Vintage Rally.

I've already received a private message from 87MH pointing out that I had neglected to list him in the preceeding list as an attendee when he had submitted his registration weeks ago. It was an oversight on my part, plain and simple. Is there anyone else out there who is planning to attend that I've overlooked and failed to list above?

The organizers of this rally just met and reviewed various aspects of the upcoming Texas Vintage Rally. Several things stood out.

The final catered meal (one of three) has been arranged. It will consist of Bar-B-Que brisket and sausage, German style potatoe salad, brown beans and all the trimmings. The other two meals will be a Louisiana Cajun meal prepared by Vince Saltafamaggio and Tom Beebe, both highly skilled culinary artists and the third meal will be ham served with side dishes in a pot luck format.

We have arranged for a cash bar during the rally which should prove to be a popular new addition to this rally.

It is certainly time to begin sending in your registrations for this rally as existing sites are filling fast. In addition to the 42 WBCCI members who have either sent in their registrations or have requested that a site be saved for them from the various Texas Units and the New Orleans unit, we now believe we have 35 participants just from the forums already signed up or advising that they are in the process of sending in their registrations with an additional four more who state they are likely to attend making a total of 39 potential airstream forums members at this rally. That totals 81 trailers who have already firmly indicated they are coming to the 5th Annual Texas Vintage Rally. If there are additional forums members wanting or planning to attend, please notify me or Elaine Jackson so that we might at least save you a site until you can get your registration in to our registrar. Contact elaine@gaj.com for a registration form or to request a site be saved for your use.

Remember, we’ve only reserved 104 sites for this rally. Again, if you are seriously considering attending this rally, you should probably be getting in your registrations as soon as possible. My current list of forums members attending include:

John Baker (DALLAS, TEXAS FORUMS MEMBER) (PAST VINTAGE PARTICIPANT)
eharve Harvey Craig (FORUMS MEMBER)
fischman Myron Fischer (PAST VINTAGE PARTICIPANT) (AUSTIN TEXAS FORUMS MEMBER)

The Vintage Rally scheduled for Feb 4-8, 2009 in San Antonio at Braunig Lake RV Park is going to be a winner. We have fun, food , fellowship and much more. This year there will be a cajun twist, tours of San Antonio available, Seminars that will be different than any you have ever seen, etc. Tell all your Airstream friends,far and near to come to San Antonio for a Winter Fiesta. Fischma.

Send a message via Skype™ to Melody Ranch
Not to be repeated

I made a big mistake when I attended last year. I figured that the first couple days were to be filler for the "real" week end activities....so I showed up late Friday evening. MISTAKE! Tons of great activities every day of the event. I may arrive a week early this year and be sure to catch it all.

Good idea Melody Ranch. You won't need to show up a week early, but do come on down a day or two early. Those who have organized this event and those who are chairing various tasks associated with trying to flawlessly pull it off will all arrive a day or so early to start getting things organized and off on the right footing. We'll be going out to eat together and we should have the opportunity to get in a lot of "visiting time" before the hectic activity of the actual rally starts. This is a great time to see old friends again and get to know new ones. I, for one, would like to spend some time getting to know you and see your 1947 Liner, if that is what you decide to bring. Once the rally starts, my time won't be my own. The last two years, I've not gotten to tour even one Vintage Airstream nor attend a single seminar due to the demands of whatever I had volunteered to do. This year I agreed to be the co-ordinating chair for the rally and assume I will really, really be busy filling in wherever I'm needed, anwering questions, making last minute decisions that may arise, etc.

I talked to Pee Wee a few nights ago and it looks like he may come in early as well. In any case, it appears he will be providing at least three opportunities for people to pick his brain about Airstream history, early caravans and the WBCCI of days gone by. As mentioned in an earlier post, he will also be at the rally throughout and will be approachable for discussions and questions. I know that for many, the seminars concerning repair and renovation of their Vintage Airstreams may hold the greater interest, but for me, getting the opportunity to interact with Pee Wee will be the highlight of this rally.

Final details will be firmed up this next week to ten days as our timeline dictates we soon publish and begin mailing out our schedule of events to all registrants.

Coming in early

Hello... We might be arriving a couple of days early . Is there any way to find out which site we would be on so we would not have to move? Thanks

Happycampers

We have three complete rows of sites totaling 104 sites reserved in this park where no other campers will be parked among us. We will be parking the Vintage trailers in the middle of these three rows adjacent to one of of the meeting rooms/bathrooms. We have some Vintage owners who are handicapped and others who don't have bathroom facilities that we will be reserving parking slots closest to the meeting rooms/bathrooms. We'll also be assigning our longer Vintage trailers to a select few sites that will better accomodate them. Additionally we will be reserving a couple of sites which will better accomodate the trailer where we will be conducting seminars on polishing, frame repair, electrical rewiring, plumbing repair, floor replacement, axle replacement and the like. This site has a larger grassy area that will better accomodate the folks who come to attend this part of the rally. Otherwise, it wouldn't make much difference to us where someone parks. There won't be any sites reserved for a VIP section or any such thing. Mr. Pat McDowell, the Region 9 VAC representative will be making his decisions on which few sites he will want reserved for the above cited reasons while Mr. Gary McClanahan will actually be responsible for parking the vintage units. Pat McDowell's email address is: pat_mcdwll@yahoo.com . Gary McClanahan's email address is: marilyn-gary@earthlink.net . Contact one or both of them for early parking site assignment.
