Anyone ariving early?

I need to fly out of Alb on Thurs and get back Sunday so I wont be at the rally proper, but it looks like I may be staying there before and after and storing the camper there. It would be fun to meet up with anyone getting there early or staying late.

Camping

I will be driving from Flagstaff to the Rally. Does any one know of a good area to camp somewhere between Flag and Albuquerque? I would prefer to boondock near a lake or stream if possible. Thanks in advance.

Melody - now that is funny - it made me realize that I've been out and away from Texas way too long - I think I've been New Mexicoinized because Margarita's are the standard here.

Quick note from Area 63...
we're preparing the 1958 Flying Cloud for the Restoration Rally. It has seen some progress since last year, but mostly inside and under the floor.
The topics for the hands on workshops will be centered around practical procedures that most Airstream owners with a new or vintage unit can appreciate.
Wood Working:
we will have a hands on clinic on cabinet doors, drawers, and general assembly and repair of Airstream cabinetry.
Wood Finishing:
common procedures for finishing and refinishing will me presented. A basic class on do's and dont's. A general comparison of wood finishes and their advantages and disadvantages.
Light metal fabrication
fabrication of vintage style interior window frames, perhaps vent covers, ceiling vent frames, etc. An assortment of common sheet metal tools and materials will be available for hands on fun.
Riveting
basic riveting techniques, different styles of rivets, and their uses. Another hands on class, and an important one for every Airstream aficionado.
Windows and doors
another hands on for those that want to learn about restoring Hehr windows. We will have windows and materials ready for hands-on window restoration. A complete rebuild of a 1958 entry door is also scheduled ( time permitting, though)
Electrical
the Flying Cloud does have interior skins now, but the basic electrical installation is still visible, and there will be a q&a on it's layout and design. Battery cable fabrication, as well as installation of converter/charger, inverter, and battery monitor are all scheduled. ( time permitting)
In addition, there are numerous classroom seminars, presentations, and all sorts of other interesting airstream centric events.
I am very excited to have the opportunity to share all of this with you.

NicheVintage,
Do you go through Flag on your way to Albequerque? If so, when will you be going through town? That would be great to join your caravan.

I am embarassed....

Getting ready for the trip I decided to take the Flying Cloud. I really have not done anything to it since getting it home....most work on the 47. I took a whack at polishing but ran into some problems...so I only have a half a--ed corner done. Then the AC decided to how me it had no drain pan......so why polish until thats resolved....? Then the , up till now working fine, Marvel fridg decided go south. ETC., ETC. I am still going to come with it...but if your there and see the mess....remember, this is a restoration rally. I need to attend all demos.

I still plan on being there. GT may not be ready to roll. So a tent may be my digs. OK? Have yet to see the registration docs. Can I still come? (1 female, 1 canine, spouse is opting out)

Hey Ken,
I think we're going to attend this Rally after all! With the recent purchase of a '58 Overlander, this Rally is a must! However, because of my job, we are thinking about flying out rather than taking the trip (and time) to pull our Airstream. Are there any cabins at the RV Park? We noticed that there are some hotels nearby if not.

Sign me up!

Melody, there will be a number of us in the same condition. No Worries!

MelloMike, see post 49 this thread. A number of good possibilities.

Talking

I'm just trying to get my walls back in before the rally. This is no "Maxwell" or "Birdy" but it will suit me until some future date for a total overhaul in order to last me the next 49 years.

See you all soon.
