As far as sign up, I think all you need to do is PM or email Rideair.

Stayin' alive, stayin' alive

The guys from the 60s have a very nice eye. I think #2 is my favorite as well.

I also liked the blue print look of #3. Very clever.

But have you thought about incorporating a disco ball in your design?

I do want to and plan to attend but the campground and Paul do not know this yet. If we do we will caravan down with Yuki and others heading south. They do not know this but we will just tag a long on the back end.

62Overlander, I may make it to the CBR to volunteer on the judges panel for the throw down Challenge. Let me check the weather channel first.

If I get a second vote I'll go for the blueprint style layout and why not have a disco ball too!
Gary

I like the Blue one or should I say the white printing on a blue shirt.

Looks like the votes are coming in!

Glad to hear you are liking what you are seeing. As far as the "Antique White vs Blue" logo, that's a no problem. The same screen could be used to make both. Do the white first, clean the screen and do the printing of the blue second.

Does anyone know of a good shirt guy/gal?? That's CHEAP!!! I would like to use 100% cotton.

Sounds like a plan. Now I'm getting the urge to splurge on a cb!

Does anyone else do the cb thing?

Cb

I am told they are useful while caravanning. My only experience with them was with a friend moving his race cars and listening to truckers swear at each other. I was shocked!

M&M tryed to warn me about turning the wrong direction at the freeport rally but I could not hear them...

Cell phones would work if there is coverage, but then we would not be able to get the BIG ANTENNA! that comes with the CB. Then I would feel more at home at the Flyin' J Truck Stop.

I think I am talking myself into it.

just talk yourself into coming, and treat yourself to the CB. I say lets fill this KOA with vintage aluminium and some fresh aluminium too.

Absolutely! I would highly recommend one. I don't go on a big trip without one!

Besides being able to converse with your fellow Airstream caravanners, there is also the truckers. I enjoy listening to the truckers and I even talk with them. Many of the truckers are very interesting to talk with (sort of like talking with folks around a campfire) and any "bad language" is usually eliminated immediately when the guys hear a woman's voice. If the conversation starts to go beyond the point of where I feel comfortable, I am upfront with them and let them know that I'm leaving. If it doesn't stop there, I leave.

Also, many times there is informative traffic information to be had. For example, when stuck in a traffic jam heading W on I80...just get on the CB and hail a eastbound trucker and ask what the delay is. They are happy to oblige. It helped us during a bad backup of over 5 miles...the truckers all shared an alternate route off highway which bypassed the jam.

The best part, is the "smokey bear" warnings. These are invaluable if you have a heavy foot!

The truckers also have their own "lingo" which I find fun to learn. It helps to know what they are talking about. Some lingo examples are:

"4 wheeler" = automobile
"parking lot" = car carrier truck
"alligator" = retread tire in the road
"bear" or "smokey the bear" = trooper
"full blown bear" = trooper with his lights on
"bear taking pictures" = radar trap
"bear in the woods" = speed trap
"do you have your ears on" = question to a fellow CBer asking if their CB is turned on
