Excited!

So I think this thread will have just changed our lives... We (my wife and I and our 6mth old daughter) are from Australia (please don't hold that against us) and have just purchased a 77 31' Airstream from Oregon and after doing a little late night google'ing, came across this thread.

We have now booked our trip from Australia to pick up our Airstream and do a bit of a road trip ending up at this great event! So we will be newbie Airstreamers and first time attendees at this event... Words cannot explain how excited we are and looking forward to meeting you all!!!

Darren, Sam and Grace.

How delightful! I'm looking forward to meeting you, Darren, Sam, and Grace and any charming or absurd talents you may care to share. We will be new to this group too.

Heck, just bring your didgeridoo and join the jam sessions.

Seriously, welcome to the states and to the Airstream family.

Well two things are official....

First - we got our attendance confirmation from Ken (thanks Ken)
Second - We just got back from picking up our (new to us) 28' Flying Cloud in Seattle . Got it back to Canada (4500 km later) and never broke anything. (thank goodness)

Looking forward to seeing you all in October.

Cheers
Doug

Looks like you were having a great time downunder weirdstuff!

And Pahaska, I'll have to see if I can fit a didgeridoo in the suitcase - could be fun!

Thanks Weirdstuff and Jenniflow for the warm welcome and Doug, we're very jealous - wish we were picking ours up now...

Hi Monah! Charlie and I are going too and our friends here in Salem, Mark and Judy Barrall are bringing their trailer too! We are leaving Sept. 16th and fishing our way down to the rally fishing through Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and N.M. We are so excited to go and it will be fun to see some familiar Oregon faces too!

Yes, we hope to do some smaller stream fly fishing on Greys River in WY and in southwest CO. Since we would be passing near the Green River below Flaming Gorge Reservoir in UT and the San Juan River in NM we couldnt pass these up as we are never sure when we would get back that way again.
