Water Pressure

The grapevine is alive and well. Our hosts report that water pressure at the campground is high. You will need to bring your water pressure regulators.

See you tomorrow.

Will do.

Plus we will have a 14" Dutch Oven, wood for the fire, tacky lit flamingos, tacky flamingo lights for our awning, one giant fat cat named Buddy for the kids to pet and play with (he loves it), fixin's for a couple of pies and more CDs and DVDs than you can shake a stick at. I'm glad it's only an hour commute from our home as we will be one heavy truck and rig!

Really, really looking forward to this. It's funny, I *never* remember rain at any of our Rallies. I guess it's because of the tent and the good company.

Thumbs up What a grand adventure!

Even though it rained cats and dogs for most of the weekend we had a fantastic time! Good tent (belongs to our Unit, the kind that folks use for weddings including sides), GREAT food, fun time touring Nashoba Winery and attending the wine tasting party. And most of all the cool folks who were in attendance, you guys rock!

Many thanks to Balgrn for the ear plugs! I was able to get a good nights sleep even with the rain battering our trailer.

Now to finish cleaning out the trailer so we can get her parked in the barn. We need to open our awning and let it dry and brush off all the pine needles. We also need to address our new leak from the A/C. Nothing like a little rain to highlight your problem areas.

Thumbs up Great Job

What a weekend!

Great job for first time rally hosts, the Duesel's and Reid's!

Food, campfires, wine tasting and visiting were all fantastic. We had a ball exploring the area at Kimball's Ice Cream, the Butterfly Museum, Nashoba Winery, et al. It was great to see all the old familiar faces as well as several new "first timer couples".

Yes, it rained, but that didn't dampen the spirits of all involved. Thank goodness for the tent and sides!

Kudos on a wonderful job.

Thankyou

Thank you for your warm welcome at Sunday's breakfast. We really enjoyed the tours and talking to people. When we first considered an Airstream, we were thinking primarily of making camping and travel more comfortable. Sunday's visit allowd us to experience firsthand the fun and extra benefit of being part of the NE WBCCI community. Looking forward to next season's events.
Mike and Joan

Wink Rain, Rain, what a pain. But it won't stop us!

We had the best time. Thanks to all the old and new friends we spent time with. Here are some pix to share for those that couldn't make it. A really big thanks to our hosts for giving us such a special weekend, we wouldn't have missed it for anything.

sorry we missed it!

We went with a small contingent of SOBs to a campground in NH that is situated along a river. well, the river rose and rose...we wound up getting "evacuated". A bunch of people just plain left; others, ourselves included, just moved up to higher ground in the parking area near the entrance, and stuck it out. By morning, there was a couple of feet of H20 in our original campsite. And just like other recent higher profile floods, there was panic, followed by heavy traffic, confusion, and at least a couple of dumb-@sses living in some sort of bizarre denial that wouldn't move, thinking that they could ride it out, and wound up being pulled out by the fire department.

It was somewhat of an adventure....but you guys look like you had more fun.

Next time....

Just want to thank all of you for attending our rally. We had a great time. So many helping hands!!! All positive attitudes in spite of the weather (did it rain?) made for an enjoyable time for all. No complaining and whining, just a fun "rocking" group of Airstreamers doing what we do best....Does life get any better than this?

Thank You!!!

We had the most amazing great time!!

Thank you to all the wonderful members of the New England Unit.

You welcomed us warmly and made us feel right at home. The memories of this weekend will make winterizing less bitter.

Both host couples did an extraordinary job in organizing and carrying out this fun rally.We can't wait for the next one.

We'd like to especially thank Chef Doug & his assistants for waking up at dawn every day and
despite the pounding rain that never stopped, they all worked hard at the stoves and prepared many wonderful meals for all of us. We are very grateful. (spotless and constant wiping of tables was also provided as well as a continuous personal supply of extra paper towels...thank you)

Also, thank you D's for the
private wine tasting, it was one of the many highlights of the weekend. It took all the chill out

Rain = mud but that did not stop
several willing participants who organized an informal 'vintage tour' by inviting a few of us into their AS despite our muddy boots What a great experience.

Finally, last but not least thanks to the Mr.Messy family for their kind friendship and help in making sure we always knew what was going on so we didn't miss out on anything.

Hope to see everyone again soon!!

Looks like fun and wine was had by all. I don't really understand the thing with the gloves. Is this some sort of initiation ritual that we should know about? eeeek!
