Thankfully I was able to get vacation for the weekend so we are in. Missed last year and have needed a "fix". The boys are looking forward to it and are really getting into restoration stuff. By the way Ken, how much for me and the 3 boys? Where did I leave that time machine, I need to speed the clock up.

Reservations made - registration mailed.

This is a working rally, as well as a learning one, right? We're more than willing to help with projects on other airstreams since we'll need to leave Little Girl home (no axels yet, among other missing items).

Are there any tools we can bring to help out?

Chris

Yes - this is very much a hands on working rally, as well as lots of learning - I think we are good with tools - but will let you all know as we get closer...

We also leave Sunday a little open to go around a look at current projects and give advice and consel.

We are planning on arriving Thursday early afternoon, and leaving Monday - will we miss anything doing it that way? We can change our plans to Wednesday arrival if needed. It's a 2 week vacation for us so we have other destinations too and are trying to plan.................
Ooh, will you come to Minnesota on Sunday and give us advice and counsel?

Kay

Things are moving along nicely for the rally - getting lots of sign ups....

We are once again honored to have Pee Wee Schwamborn joing us again this year - if you have never met him - you are in for a real treat - he is as close as you will ever get to Wally - he has incredible memory for the history of Airstream and is a treasure for all things Airstream.

Unfortunately I can't make it that weekend but I wonder if there is anyone organizing this that would compile a dvd of the major talks and demos??? I know I'd pay to see it! Just a thought.....

I think I will be picking PeeWee up in AZ and bring him to Albuquerque. Did this last year, it is indeed a definite treat to spend time with him.

Called the park today and set my reservation for 8th through the 12th (have to leave Sunday). Ken, registration and check is on its way to you. Will take I17 to I40 then across. This time I'll make sure not to buy gas on the reservation (it's like 2 dollars more there). Looking forward to seeing everyone again..

Really?! PeeWee is scheduled to attend the Restoration Rally??! What a treat this will be, and worth the 'price of admission' alone! Jim and I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Schwamborn a few years ago atop the St. Louis Arch. It was a pleasant surprise (shock!) at that time & place, but we are really look forward to having some quality time to chat with him about all things Airstream! PeeWee's mom (and Wally's cousin), Helen Byam Schwamborn, signed our club's original charter waaaaaayyyyy back in 1965...and we're still going strong! Looking forward to June!

Jerry - I'm surprised fuel is more expensive on the reservation - around here its usually cheaper...

We will have Pee Wee do a presentation for us - he is very interesting and has many many stories of times past

Breakfast?!?

Rumor has is that aside from all the great information available at the rally we also may have a special breakfast one or two of the mornings?
