Hopefully some one will post pics of the more "memorable" gifts once the event is past. Those of us who wish like heck we could be there will be anxious to see who got what

Uh oh

Went out yesterday to drain water and generally go over the trailer as the temp had plummeted over the last few days.

Inside valves frozen. I found this out after opening the petcocks and less than the usual amount of water came out. Went inside and turned on the water in the kitchen sink to open up the water line to drain and the handle snapped loose from the regulator.

That's when I found out all the valves were frozen. Fired up the furnace and thawed it all out and opened the valves.

Thankfully it seems Uwe will be in the neighborhood tomorrow and he'll stop by and we'll go over everything to see how much damage we have.

Cross your fingers everyone...

Flat Richard will be in attendance.

Happily, the x-rated towels I unwrapped last year was stolen by our Texan friends. Unfortunately the Texans can't make it this year. Good thing the towels were stolen, otherwise, the x-rated towels would be in attendance also.

California's Mojave Desert at about 4000 feet.

Oh my...you can get a "real winter" at that altitude. Once you have it fixed, there are lots of threads on "winterizing with the pink stuff" or "blowing out the lines with a compressor"--both would be good solutions for you in the high desert.

take note for NYE!!!!

new Yale study:

"..Scrambling to wrap those last few presents? Drop the fancy wrapping paper, put down the ribbon and stop channeling Martha Stewart — a recent Yale study suggests you might be better off keeping it simple.

Elaborate wrapping heightens gift recipients’ expectations and may not improve the giving and receiving experience, according to research conducted by School of Management professors Nathan Novemsky and Ravi Dhar. Rather than making a less desirable gift more appealing, nice wrapping increases the disappointment of receiving unwanted presents. The researchers also concluded that wrapping desirable gifts plainly can increase recipients’ glee upon opening because their expectations for the gift are not overly heightened...."

Fancy wrapping paper can be bad, researchers say | Cross Campus

Ah, that explains why Flat Richard came in a used pepperoni pizza box! Such anticipation.

And it is also why I use either plane jane brown paper or newspaper with duct tape. That way ANYTHING in the package is better so they are not just happy, but relieved.

Well, maybe excepting a bug clock

Barry, it sounds like you miss the scorpion clock. I would be happy to start saving them for you in a brown paper covered box with duct tape. R

Hi All! I'm Chris, the newest of newbs. I'm from Phoenix and I have a 1974 Argosy 24'. This is just my 2nd post. The 1st post was my member intro just a few minutes ago. I was wondering if there's still time to sign up for this rally? Sorry so late...I just found out my initial NYE plans fell thru. But I think it may be serendipity working for me as this rally would be my first, and from the sounds of it, it would be a thousand times more enjoyable than my previous plans. So, I hope there's still time. To sweeten the deal, I just want to say that just about everything I own is white-elephanty, so someone would be assured a great exchange It would be just myself and my 2 small dogs, and we probably won't be able to join the rally until Saturday morning. Looking forward to meeting fellow Airstreamers for the first time!(fingers crossed)
