Here's Blu_Hwy_Lady's wonderful retro look and very appealing bright burnt sienna paint job. The turquoise cushions go so well with the interior colors. I like the dinnette in the middle and the open space. Susan is very happy with her decision to remove the partitions.

Richard recovers his funny bone--at least Jan and Rosemary think so. Brad somehow thinks he has to provide moral support...

Who wins the Airstream book? Why it's Argosy Mike, of course. Irony, irony, irony. So we made him try to explain this to Kevin....who is paying attention to managing his "liquid bread". Wearing the shirt of all shirts, I might add.

No rally is complete without a little guy chat, probably about aluminum, or maybe recalling that they used to talk about, um, their devotion to the loves of their life...no, maybe Kevbo is talking about Lightning or, could it be, peeps? Kev, how's that breakfast bread you've got in your right hand? Doesn't look like it would make good toast, even though it's breakfast time.

Panoply of weather - WITH PEEPS!

Left Cottonwood at 10:30 yesterday and about 15 miles south of Flagstaff it started to SNOW. Not kidding around snow!! Covered the road over many stretches.... Temps around freezing - all that after a balmy 56 when we left DHRSP.

Oh well... we push on through. On the downslope east of Flagstaff it was back into the 60's. A panoply of weather. Home by 5:30. Had the 'monster' unloaded by 6pm - easy when it's only me and Max.

He IS the maximum cool traveller. Those of you that have met him, know of what I speak. He loves looking out the window and pointing out intertesting geological formations (while I'm trying to see the road markings!!!), then there are the trains, the clouds, the trucks, and .... well, you get the idea.

By the way, I had to call the cops this morning at 3am... the 5 peeps that rode home with us got into the to-kil-ya and found a deck of cards. Everyone knows that pics of the dogs playing poker - well this was FACED Peeps.... Peeps gone wild!!! Still cleaning up feathers. The cops asked where the peeps came from - I told 'em.

Now they are looking for a 7 foot tall, cowboy beer drinking, western wear sportin', eucalyptus burnin', bauxite haulin', heck of a nice guy. But they seemed perturbed, so you might want to stay out west for a while. Just a thought.

Richard & Jan - THANKS for all you did for me, Max and everyone!!! Had a BLAST! Also a BIG shout out to all the others that organized, welcomed, cooked, brought wood, chairs and generators. My humble thanks.

LONG LIVE THE 4CU!!!!

Axel

The Dead Horse Convention That Would'nt Die...

fellow convention peeps...

i love a good observation...

i do it all the time...

now if say your going to a convention, or a rally, either one... i'd hope the folks attending were cool. well... guess what breaks out? (no not the rash part) bauxite love. like EVERY RIG. in HUGE amounts. and personalities, BIG ones, like everybody... so much so, that half the convention stayed an extra day, turned themselves into a rally; really. i've never seen that happen B4, ever, and i've been to like three rallies. is it the water in the south west? the organic home grown fire wood? someone tell me...

so anyway...

i really liked the activites...

happy hours
pot lucking (including pizza, that was perfect!)
small earth friendly camp fires (and they can be sooooo.... informative, i just love good info; like: interspecies humanity and a man (rich, i'm writing the script for clerks III now) wrestling tips, tuna and fedex, all kinds of things, i could go on like forever, yak, yak, yak...)
laser show
ta-kill-ya from small bottles
the corn thingie game
trade that recipe
decorating idea stealing seminar
fashion shows
looking thru a big tube, up, really up, at bright things...
to many to list here________ .


tours: dive cowboy bars, upscale cowboy bars, saloons, feed stores, ant-i-Qing, jail, gun store, the motel w/ my name written all over it, trailer open house, cure tour, all sorts of interesting stuff...

going out to dinner w/ the gang, sitting at the bar watching bull riding... yak, yak, yaking...

going to jerome (stop now).

taking drives, drinking, shooting the windows out of old mine buildings w/ the .44 cal handguns... (we had 14 on this event alone. do you have any idea how expensive ammo is for a .44? a big shout out to "Smoke n Guns" for there sponsorship of this event!!!)

the looting. what a hoot!!!

so anyway, i'm still roaming around the west... against my will. i gota feed store and a saloon to visit...

and always remember,

Peeps Are For Keeps,

Kevin

More Cottonwood Rally Photos

My Airstream was loaded and ready to leave the snow behind and head for Cottonwood, AZ.

Here are my pictures at the Rally.

Thanks to Richard and Jan for organizing this event.

We had a nice happy hour and pot luck with better contributions than the last unit that I was associated with.

There was a lot of unstructured time for doing your own thing.

The venue was good with just the FCU folks at the group site.
Sedona and Jerome were nice nearby sightseeing destinations.
The campfires every evening were great and the star gazing with the huge telescope was an added bonus.

Looks like the FCU is off to a good start!

Concise...

i love the word concise...

it appeals to me... on different levels...

but i'm neither (concise or appealing)...

it i were to say; add:

a drop of water
a pound of bauxite

and (rustling around looking for ...)

the word does'nt come to mind...

but it's big... really big...

you could take post #598 and turn it into post #597.

but that's just me...

on another note...

i'm looking for the "small" children recipe. i'm hungry... anyone?

kevin

What a Great Time!
Very special thanks to our Hosts, Jan and Richard, co-hosts, associate hosts, wannabe hosts, hostlike folks and such.
Great rigs, learned a lot on our first A/S Rally!
Most of all, surrounded by smiles, and meeting new friends.

Home safe late Monday night after docking in the Prescott NF for a night, saw Kevbo in Quartzite as they streamed by, and we're looking forward to the next run.
Really loved the theme of the 4CU, camping and fun...where do we join?
Ya'll Stream Safe!

Richard was there an airstream motorhome in one of your pics? that was partially shown? Enquiring minds want to know if some of our brethran made it there. And no prize for the best motorhome? (post 591)
