I finally got the over_counter cabinet out of the Sovereign. If someone (that would be a deserving someone) needs the whole thing, I will bring it, otherwise I'll bring the tambours (they are in good shape) and the control panel.

I'm thinking about keeping the fan for my Safari, but that might also be available.

"Check's in the mail".

I think people that have attended all five resto-rally's should get free cookies, what do think Ken?

1st year - motorcycle & tent
2nd year - back of my truck
3rd year - aluminum tent
4th year - aluminum tent w/bathroom and AC
5th year - the Caravel should be done by June, YEA! (except for polishing, maybe)

Always a great time, a lot of Fun, Facts, and Friends.

See y'all in June

Sheridan

Streaming the restoration exhibitions

I don't know enough to do this, but I do have some thoughts about it.

1. Don't attempt to stream live. The campground WiFi is inadequate and there would be too much down time while people assemble for a exhibition, tools are found, etc.
2. Record the various exhibitions using a good quality digital video camcorder. (I don't have one)
3. Stream each exhibition from a home or business with a good high speed Internet connection. It is the upload speed that is important. Use a high speed link like firewire to connect the DV camcorder to a computer with a fast processor. Use a software streaming server like VLC Media Player (I have no idea how to configure this free software)
4. Advertise on Airforums or elsewhere what day and time each exhibition will be streamed and the http address to receive it.

These comments may be enough to attract someone with real knowledge to step in.

Hi, Ken,

Very excited to be coming to a Restoration Rally, finally! Had to figure out most of what I needed to know in 2006-2007 on my own, but am still an avid learner. Working on windows, solar & polishing are what remain to do, so those are the areas I'll be particularly interested in.
Good friend of mine from college is dying to come with me, so I'm sending my husband to the beach with his brother & sister that week. He HAS finally gotten interested in camping in our Airstream (living in it for a year on a jobsite in West Texas had sort of soured him), but actually working on it, not so much.

Sounds great - tell your husband to be prepared when he gets back home because his wife will be in "airstream knowledge overload" - :-) You are not going to believe all that you will learn..........

I am getting ready this year

Ken...I am gathering all my spare parts, old and new, for the sale portion of the rally. Getting ideas on where to concentrate my "studies" this year. I got to thinking that there may be some things we could help with....ideas from the field. How about an awning seminar. .....replace fabric, tension setting, maintenance and setting it up alone type info. An in general AC replacement course of guidance. An early morning "learn to tow, back up and set up your Airstream. The Hitch. Safety on the road. These are all things I heard folks mention last year...any other ideas...I know there is experience to share.

We already have the hitching up on the menu - that is new this year - we have done A/C before - perhaps need to do again - awning - not so sure that can be VERY dangerous, I know someone who almost lost his hand messing with an awning...
