I am looking forward to a lesson in electrical circuitry! Thank you for asking him to do this!
Leon never reads the forum. I'm feeling pretty safe here......

Hey! What happened to the "Crockpot Bag Cooking" seminar?!? They had two of these sessions at last year's International Rally. Way too wicked funny.

Actually folks, if electrical stuff makes you nutty I recommend you attend Leon's seminar. He is really good with this kind of stuff.
Oh, I'd love to help with this seminar if Leon needs/wants any help that is... it's looking like i'll be securing the interior of the trailer as well as I can and should be able to make it out to the rally. See you all this weekend!

Great! I'll let Leon know you are up for this when he gets back into the house from the barn. Here's what he is planning to cover in case you would like to add additional content:
  • Troubleshooting Electrical Circuits using the Half-Splitting Method
  • Airstream Electrical Supply / Tool Kit
I'm really looking forward to seeing the progress on your Airstream - your recent pictures are fantastic.

Oh, I'm also very interest in your TV reception setup. Wonder if this would work for our camper too?

I'm sorry to report that there is good news and bad news on this.

The bad news is the "wheel bearing man" is out on medical leave for the next 6-8 weeks so I had to cancel that seminar.

The good news is he told me to tell you that he will do a private wheel bearing seminar with your trailer after he gets better!

Check in and check out time

I just spoke with the campground and they are offering our group mega flexibility with check in and check out.
Normally, check in is 3 PM...we can arrive anytime after noon.

Normally, check out is 1 PM...we can stay for the afternoon on Sunday, if we like.

When arriving, there is no need to "check in" at the office. Instead, you can proceed directly to the safari field. I'm shooting to arrive around noon time so hopefully I will be there first to greet everyone!

With regards to campfires, each site has a pit for a fire. I have asked the campground if we could have a single pit centrally located. They are investigating the feasibility of this for me. <fingers crossed>

P.S.
If you happen to meet up with any of the campground owners during the weekend, be sure to thank them! They have been extra nice and flexible for us!

Nancy-

I think this is a great idea and it si something we probably don't do often enough! On Sunday everyone is in such a rush to dump and get on the road we often forget what our ground hosts had done for us in the weeks leading to the rally and while we are there. What a wonderful idea to actually say thank you to someone.

I just got back from a ride to check out the campground. It's about 15 miles from us...looks like a really nice grassy rally field from the road. They will not let any kind of motorcycle in the campground, no scooters, no Harley's ...NADA. The owner I take it came up to the front office in a dozer while I was chatting with the ladies and started letting me know the rules..Yikes..this guy means business..must of had a bad experience in the past.

The ladies at the front desk we super nice. They told me they had just got off the phone with you Yuki and are looking forward to all of us arriving!

I haven't had the "pleasure" yet to speak with the owner as I've only dealt with the ladies. The ladies told me the story of how the campground was "burned" a few times last year with camping clubs reserving the whole field of 29 spots but only ending up using 10 of them. At that time in the summer, I guess they were at peak season and had a waiting list of people who could have filled those extra safari field sites so he lost money.

When I reserved the field in August of 2006, they didn't have any rules yet as they hadn't gotten "burned" yet. They allowed me to reserve the field without committing to a head count. I only mention this now in the event others decide to use this campground in the future as he will be asking for a deposit and more of a headcount committment for future safari field rentals.

This will be the second time that I know of that the Airstream club has reserved his field so he will hopefully realize how wonderful we all are and how easy we are to work with!

Yippeee! I was planning on leaving here at 12 since I took the day off. I am happy to hear I do not have to wait until 3 to arrive. See you all there!!
