Snowman making contest on Saturday?

Just kidding!

The trees are going to be wonderful with color this weekend, the dutch oven will be hot, and the pumpkins decorated.

I'm looking forward to a great weeekend.

We really hope we can make it..................now we have another challenge -- something is going on with our fresh water tank. It looks as though it has dropped, and seems that the cover for it may have water in it too! I'm hoping Frank gets home before dark tonight so he can take another look.

The question is: do we try to fix it before the rally, or should we come to the rally and get more opinions of what's going on and how to fix it? (Coming to the rally and not having fresh water in the TT would be a pain.) Anyway, that's what we'll be trying to decide.

Bring it and you can absolutely be certain it will be repaired while you are there! I can just picture 10 guys under your trailer with multiple tool boxes.......

Wow, that's a comforting thought, and we would greatly appreciate any help and/or thoughts shared at Findley!

I just read on the Airforums that shorewater by passes the fresh water tank, if that's right and true for all models, then as long as the SP has water hookups, I'm thinking we could come and still have water to use in the TT! (Although, I don't know if we could be leaking if we do that.)

By the way, we meant to PM you to say that on the way home from Penn Wood, we were (I was) talking away on the CB and thought that perhaps you didn't turn yours on when all of a sudden you were talking to us! We then realized......................we'd forgotten to put our magnetic CB antenna (sp) out when we left Penn Wood!! I guess we had a senior moment!

There are no water hookups at findley but there is potable water station by the dump station area. Consider this practicing for "dry camping" until we get it fixed this weekend

Loren,
Do we have a menu?....I'm trying to decide what to make.

We might be arriving before dark on Friday....Brian is trying to get off work a couple of hours early.

Saturday Dawn and I will be cooking a dutch oven turkey with some trimmings for the potluck. Hopefully works out better than my last dutch oven recipe where I made charcoal!

Loren,

Thanks for that info on Findley's water supply.

Update on fresh water tank.................Frank went out with drill in hand to drill a small hole in the fw tank's cover so any water could drain out, and found there is already one there, so he's thinking that there should not be water sitting in that cover. He also unscrewed that drain valve which he thought was pinched off, and gently pulled on it and it came forward some, so he ran a small wire through it and residue (black) came out for a short time. From this, he's thinking that when the valve is pushed back so that it can be mounted onto the fw tank's cover, it must buckle the drain line thus causing it to close off and then that's when that residue built up. He is going to pick up a new fw drain valve, install, and see what happens. He is also going to have a couple more straps made up so we'll have that fw tank and its cover held up a little more securely. If all of this is correct, we aren't in as bad a situation as we'd feared................we still would like to have everyone's input as to what they think is going on.

Thanks.

Deb

My take on the grub

We are going out on Thursday....and erecting some type of big tent shelter...hopefully the weather will cooperate. Please pray! LOL!
I am making potroast and potatoes if anyone wants to join in.
Friday--traditional supper- beanies and weenies for those arriving. Larry and I usually try and have something else available. So we are making a slow cooker full of beef stew, while Loren and Mike are making beanies and weenies.
Sat.- Breakfast!!! Throw in whatever you want to bring along. Larry is bringing his flat top grill and making pancakes for those that would like to join us. He can grill anything you think you might want to put on that grill. I think Ella is planning sausage gravy--bring your own biscuits.
Sat. is the chili cook-off and we will eat on our own...tasting the chili as we get ready for judging.
Potluck Sat. Loren is making a great dish in the slowcooker that she has been practicing, and another that she will do for me to bring along.
Sunday- cereal bar..bring whatever you want to share???

As with most of the other rallies, everybody should bring a dish to share and their table service (paper plates and silverware or whatever), and their own drinks...and a comfortable chair.

Larry is loading the firewood for the campfire. We will probably be toasting marshmallows and sharing other various snacks. After all, this is a rally!!!! Too much good food is required, right??

Did I forget anything, Loren?

the big weekend

Well, we had a wonderful weather day for Thursday, but it went downhill from there. Luckily, we had a large tent for a shelter. Thanks to Dan and Dawn it had a big heater to keep us all toasty. The potluck and raffle were fun. Thanks to Loren and Mike for all of their hard work. Thanks to Ella and Tom for the help on great fun ideas and hard work. Thanks to Terry and Sue, Al and Shinim, Mike and Loren for helping us get the tent down in the pouring rain and mud!
Even though the weather was not cooperative we had a great time and met some wonderful folks..and met a few new great friends too!
The food was great! We had lots of Airstreamers making fabulous chili for the Cook-Off and we got to taste it! Terry won the Silver Family Chili Cook-Off trophy, but he also placed in the SP awards. Dave Deitz got honors...and forgive me for not remembering who else placed in the event. It was good and fun.
Thanks for helping us celebrate Mike and Loren's Anniversary with good food and fellowship!
