Appetizer contest

I will be sending out a separate email to all rally attendees, but I will give the forum crew an advance notice -- there will be an appetizer contest being held as part of the Sunday happy hour. The voting will be done by the rally participants and a prize will be awarded to the person who gets the most votes. Judging will be done on originality, taste and presentation so start polishing up your favorite appetizer recipe!

For all of us without electricity, I just checked with the campground and GENERATORS are allowed as long as they aren't too LOUD! So here's a chance to bring your HONDA EU2000.

That's great to know! I'll be bringing my Honda 1000 or maybe borrow a friends Honda 3000? I promise to be quiet!

Are you guys going to laugh at us?

Right now, with our trailer increasingly being pulled apart for interior remodeling, I can't believe I signed us up for a Mem. weekend rally. What was I thinking?!? We'll be camped out in an aluminum tent on wheels. At least we have functioning water and cooking systems, or at least I think we do since we haven't actually used our trailer yet. Hope you natives are friendly to very new, very green, Airstreamers.

No problem! I've been there and done that and I'm sure others have too. Last year we went camping in our "new" Bambi II without any functioning systems (no water, no heat, no stove, no plumbing).

You should be ok especially because the campground has nice bathrooms with hot showers plus most of the meals are provided as part of the rally fees.

We would love to attend, but alas, we are too far away. We will try to meet up with everyone at Scusset Beach this summer. We will be in Pocasset by June, don't know if we are bring the AS so far on our first summer with her.

Just remember that you need inside and outside walls to travel. The rest is optional. You'll have a great time.

Many of us have trailers in various states of remodel/repair

Don't even worry! My beloved Airstream is in the advanced state of clearcoat failure and not one WBCCI member has made fun of her peeling sides. (We will be stripping and polishing her, just haven't gotten the courage to do it yet). You will find many folks have made improvements to their rigs that you will want to include in your remodel, just ask for a tour!

You'l be fine! What you lack in walls you will make up in fun. Our first rally too, so we'll probly bring way too much stuff! (like if that was possible)

Prob'ly should have a floor too, no?. I'll try to keep it together until after the rally then.

The timing of the rally might not be too bad after all -- a chance to talk to all you "been there, done that" folks before we do anything drastic.

This is good news Gail! We will pack our Honda EU2000 in case our batteries run down over the long weekend as we have moved to site W30 (my folks are taking E40). We have been pleased to find so far that with careful usage of voltage we can get 4+ days out of our batteries without having to recharge. Careful usage for us means limited interior and exterior lights, playing the radio/CD, watching about 1 to 2 hours of TV per day and 8+ hours per night running Leon's C-Pap machine.

Appetizer contest: YIKES! I'm not much of a cook so I'm now pouring through my cookbooks trying to figure out what I can make that would be popular with the Airstream crowd. Hopefully something wicked easy but wonderful....

Now Michelle, a little bit of your wine added to the food will give the perfect flavor! You'll win the contest for sure! See, I just gave your secret away.

Fishing

Who is interested in fishing on Sunday at the Black Rocks, while the others are Whale Watching? We need to get a fishing group together.

Hey Gail,
We look forward to getting together with all of you in just a few more weeks. We'll be a little lonely over in the boonies of row H and will need to seek out some tin revelry. Save us a spot around the campfire. Can't wait to see you all.
Mary

Post Updated Seaside Rally Info

We got an email from our rally host today with the updated Seaside Rally info.

Cool:
  • 31 registered rigs!!
  • Breakfast at a decent hour - 8:00am to 9:00am each day
  • Belgium waffle breakfast - Gail, you go girl!
  • Omelet breakfast - thanks Paul!
  • Whale watch
  • BBQ dinner
  • Pot Luck (besides my own cooking)
  • My parents first rally!
Not so cool:
  • Our trailer does not look as good as Balgrn's as he has been busy polishing and we have not (and of course we will be camping right next to him )

Our Safari is also in a state of not so cool right now and I'm even more worried that I won't be able to get it back together for the rally. I have both beds out and disassembled for cleaning underneath and behind, and I'm still working on the floor since we removed the carpet. I haven't yet started on the bath and I'm still stripping old vinyl wallpaper and green wallpaper paste off the inside divider walls. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be habitable (is that a word?) soon, but it's not looking good.
