I read an article the other day about quite a few airline employees living in one of the parking lots outside of LAX. They have to pay $60 a month and I think they have electricity. The article reminded me of this rally. I looked though the images on Bing and of the four different images there was only one Airstream. The pictures from this Rally will look quite a bit better.

Money

I have some new information about the costs.

The airport has not decided on a price for the camping yet because it's based on how many people we have, but guaranteed to be $20 or less.

The rally fee of $15 is per adult, not per trailer, and pays for the food and many activities that are included in the rally. No cost for kids.

We will be there friday night by dinner time. Probably just 2, but maybe have Kris with us. Is a 16 year old an adult or a child? If she comes she won't want to go on the tour.

I'm glad you're going to make it.

I'd say a 16 year old is a freebee, but that's not my call. $45 to $60 for a family of 4 on top of camping fees is outrageous in my opinion.

I'm out at Carlyle Lake watching thunderstorms move south of here. Come on out for a mini-rally this weekend.

I'm at Hazlet State Park site 99. Nick & Lisa are coming tomorrow with their 1964 Safari and the two trailers that joined us for Memorial Day Weekend at Whittington Woods will also be here.

Just a reminder that today is the last day to sign up for the August Airstreams In Flight rally. If you're interested be sure to sign up today. I'm going to send Nancy at WBCCI a list of names of those attending.

Traveling

Laird and I would be going to this rally in a heartbeat -- if we didn't already have plans. I'll be in Austin, TX and Oklahoma City celebrating grandchildren and children. Laird has our Airstream's front interior in demolition mode as he reworks the front gaucho and dining table in between polishing the exterior.

We've met some of the Southern Illinois WBCCI folks along with our LincolnLand WBCCI folks and are most impressed by their hospitality -- and what a fun setting for a rally. We'll keep this event in mind for our next year's schedule if it is held again.

Enjoy -- and we look forward to pictures.

Nancy Mac

Looks like a fly-in

Looks like a local chapter is planning a fly-in at the St. Louis Regional Airport the same weekend as the Airstream rally. EAA Chapter 864 Flyin/Drivein Breakfast/Lunch at St Louis Regional Airport (KALN) on August 15 2009 in Alton/St Louis, Illinois, USA - Fly-In Calendar

You all might see some cool small planes.

We've seen and heard several planes flying over us this weekend in Central Illinois so I Googled to see if there was an airshow nearby. That's how I landed (so to speak) on the info about the St. Louis Regional Airport fly-in.

A bit of information for everyone attending.

Dogs are welcome and must leashed.

Bring your water hose and a Y-connector and we'll all be daisy-chained together for water.

There will be signs for the Airstream Rally directing you to the camping area as soon as you get off the highway by the airport.

Oh yeah, Karen (marblesyoga) is coming with her 68 Overlander.

I was packing the fridge last night and questioning whether the meals were really included, so I did some calling. Indeed, the meals on the schedule are included in the rally fee. The only potluck is the brunch.

After work Cosmotini and I will be caravanning to the airport. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there.
