Do we have people attending this event that are NOT coffee drinkers?

Those look great! Isadora's been putting on her makeup; new insert nosing, new carpeting, new bumper and tongue paint, we're getting excited! There's a party![/QUOTE]

(Blush!) Tar Baby is so in white trash mode it is embarrassing! It only took 36 hours before my next door neighbor was in my face telling me that she doesn't want to see anything of the trailer! The historical significance fell on deaf ears!
So it goes ... she will present as is ... before her transformation!

Good Luck with the upcoming C2C Rally/Caravan!

Wish I was going, but I am going to the Airstreams in the Wilds event a week later, so all is not lost.

I'd like to suggest that someone take photos and write a short story about the C2C Rally/Caravan to submit for the next issue of the Vintage Airstream Club (VAC) Vintage Advantage newsletter. Any takers?

Well, the event is being covered by several media outlets from the news paper, local television, and a website called ilovelocalplaces.com. Any of that info can be used and sent to the vac if they are interested. Please have someone contact me post event since I am handling the rally.

See you at the wilds the week after.

Awwww... come on - attend both rallies, we are doing exactly that. It's going to be crazy back to back weekends with a few days of work sandwiched in between. It will be worth it!

Shameless self-promotion - Everyone please consider the Antsy McClain and Trailer Park Troubadours event in Elizabethtown, KY the weekend of October 16 - 18. The more the merrier!

A bunch of us are making it to the Wilds rally..no reason anyone out on that side the the country can't roll through Cape to Cairo and head back to the Wilds. We'll just be doing it in reverse.

Did anyone read my coffee comments? Are all trailers coffee imbibers?

The best part of waking up is "favorite coffee" in your cup.
