My family is really looking forward to our first caravan and rally. We're new to the Airstreaming, I know it will be fun, Steve has worked tirelessly on this event.

Among the many reasons our family has a camper is the fact that our two daughters, 2 and 4, have an unknown blood disorder. What this means for the girls is since birth is they have a reduced immune system (for all of the medical savvy their ANC is zero). To all of us this means in their blood they do not carry the neutrofils to fight off infection. So the reason I bring this up is they should not be exposed to viruses or bacteria. We are extremely careful with them around people. So, if you're not feeling well, runny nose, fever etc. please allow yourself a little room around the girls.

They look and act perfectly healthy for which they are, but a virus and fever above 101.5 means a trip to the ER and possibly many needle pricks (which no one likes).

Please do not take offence to this or if we keep them a little more sheltered than most parents do but, right now we are extremely cautious going into sick season.

Having an Airstream allows us to travel in our own germs and use our own potty on the road while eating food we know who prepared it. This is great peace of mind. Not to mention the fact it looks cool!

We all look forward to meeting everyone at the rally.

Thanks,
Cory, Jami, Sophie and Aubrie

I think I have all that stuff in my closet! Not a whole lot different from what I was wearing today. Some things never go out of style.

What they were wearing on safari in Nat'l Geographic: tan bermuda shorts, white t-shirt and tan shirt. And tan cloth hats.
At least there were Teddy's in South Africa. Toughies with an attitude.
Mean while back in the USA. A white T-shirt with rolled up sleves holding a pack of Camels. U-shaped taps on the toe and heal of our shoes. Clicky-clack, clicky-clack. Tan chinos, slicked hair or flat-tops. Levis, no belts. Looking cool.

You guys, maybe. I never had a pack of cigs in MY tee shirt sleeve!

As a med lab technologist, I understand what you are saying. In the medic family we are all feeling pretty healthy currently, especially the 5 year old. He does have allergies to pollen/ragweed and may sneeze. I will try and dose him up on lots of Zyrtec before your arrival since there will only be the three little ones playing.

We look forward to meeting everyone.

Steve

No one has yet mentioned the black pants with the pink stripe down the leg or the Ivy League pants with the little buckle in the back. Now that was fashion.

That's OK, Bob. My hair is long enough to count for both of us.

I refuse to sleep in curlers so I can have my hair in a pageboy again. Maybe I can find my curling iron.

How about "can-can" slips under full skirts? I think I remember I used to wear three of them under my skirts. It's a wonder any of us could get thru the halls in highschool with all those puffy skirts!

Bob,

After I went to your house Sunday and you greeted us in your poodle skirt saying, "How ya like my kilt?", I must say I was kinda worried. Since you put a great deal of effort into making that kilt...you can wear it.

Steve
