I drove out to the rally just to gawk at 50+ Airstreams in one place at one time (can you tell I haven't been to many rallies?) and chatted with a very nice guy from Chicago who showed me his massive triple-axle rig and, I must say, represented the wbcci club very well..(I have no idea if there's some political tension between the club and forums and don't want to know, really...)

There were 3 or 4 vintage rigs (my fave) and one truly amazing 50's trailer, all polished up, with CA plates...I would've snapped a picture but didn't want to disturb anyone...

...anyway, we towed the Safari over to a friends' house about 5 blocks from the parade route to have access to that MOST important Mardi Gras essential: a bathroom..Click image for larger version

...now that we have little ones at the parades we stay Uptown in the "family friendly" zones (they'll see semi-nakedness soon enough ;-) but the crowds are very well behaved and its a blast seeing how much the kids enjoy reaching for plastic trinkets (if you've never been, it's really not about the beads themselves, but more about the atmosphere/event/process...) throw me somethin' MISTAH!
