Rally Movie

We are planning on playing the movie "The Long Long Trailer" with Lucile Ball and Desi Arnez on Saturday evening using the side of an Airstream as the screen. (Weather permitting.)

The rally is this weekend. The weather will be on the warmer side around 89 degrees. We will have ten or more Airstream RV's and 3 SOB buddies as this is a "buddy rally".

We will have a tech time on Saturday afternoon. Saturday evening we will be showing "The Long Long Trailer" with Lucy and Desi. Do you know what type and length of trailer was used in this movie? You may be surprised to learn that it is shorter than an Airstream 34. The movie implies that it is a 40 footer but in reality it was not.

We will also have a group campfire.

We may also end up with a new bean bag champion.

It will be a great time.

What started out to be a week-end of camping with another WBCCI Airstream unit turned into disaster. First, after having the AS "fixed" due to NO electricity; again we had NO electricity. To top that off, it was a HOT, humid and wet week-end. Rain, rain and more rain so spent alot of time inside.
What a way to welcome visitors, actually they had nothing to do with my problem or the weather. What time we could visit, we had a good time.
Dana and I enjoy putting faces with the names we come across on the different forums.
Thanks for the week-end Dave and all.
See you down the road.
Mike

Doug and I were at Mississippi Palisades with our first RV, summer of 2002.

It couldn't have been hotter or steamier, but at least we had electricity and the AC. Cannot imagine suffering thru that heat without it.

I remember us hiking up to the top of the bluff there, with our aging Brittney Spaniel, and collapsing at the overlook for an hour or so....where there was a cool breeze and temps were about 10 degrees cooler than in the lowlands.

Let the sweat dry off us and then hiked back down.

August in the Midwest.

It is a beautiful park, tho, and bald eagles to be seen there in early spring.

I guess you make the best out of it. It was a nice weekend and it was nice seeing new faces.
