Good to know ...
By the way, I've nailed down the "veggie slop" for the potluck as you so quaintly put it.
It will be 2 of the following 3 dishes ... spinach salad w/egg, fake bacon, green onions, & a selection of dressings ... portabella mushroom ravioli w/lightly garlic seasoned pesto sauce, or fettuccine alfredo w/garlic cream sauce w/broccoli florets and sliced baby portebella mushrooms.
Hope you can choke it down ...
Bob

PS Got a hold of my great niece who goes to college at the Cape ... she has no wheels and I no cell but trying to hook up at least on saturday.

Well I'm at Shawnee Park - where is everybody? Don't think this was mentioned earlier but you want to take x95 off I55 and go east to Minnesota Ave where you'll turn right. Just talked to one of the guys who works here and they are going to be playing soccer tonite so might be a bit noisy early.

Thanks for the invite, Bob----we were in Michigan, are now in eastern Ohio nearly to the WVa/PA lines, heading into NY State.

Have a great time without us---someone please drink a toast to the joys of all things travel.

50th Anniversary Cape (Town)To Cairo Caravan and Rally

I should be arriving about 5:00 p.m. -- running late as usual -- just leaving for the laundramat -- then final packing of Overlander and hitching to Cadillac (I am hoping that the Overlander's umbilical cable mates up with the Cadillac's wiring following the installation of new cable on Overlander). If I find that I am running too late, I will hop over to Cape in my Bug and return with the Overlander early tomorrow morning. One small advantage to living so close to the rally site . . . .

We hope to join you.

Hi Mike Johns,
Scott Capland and I will be on the road from Kansas city at 5:00 am to get to the cape in time to video this Cape to Cairo: Caravan. WE HOPE!
I am the third owner of my Grandfathers 1948 Airstream. This beautiful Airstream is now owned by Corry Nolen.
Corry and family will sure to be on time for the start of the caravan.
Thanks,
Mike

Maybe after this successful Caravan, Steve will finally join the WBCCI! Pee Wee, as the Ambassador of the WBCCI, you have to bend his ear and get him signed on!

Rob, you are joking right? Surely Steve is a member of the WBCCI with organizing an event of this nature. Just the liability insurance is worth the cost of membership.

Successful Caravan

Here's a pic from Terri's cell phone as we cross the bridge from Cape heading to Cairo. It was a pretty spectacular site to see, police escort and all .... Thanks, Steve!

A Swim in the muddy Mississippi or was it the Ohio?

You guys are all a HOOT! Little Pee Wee
This was my first experience with an event like this with a club of this nature.
The history of Airstream lends itself to a pride without any kind of exclusivity. I want to thank all of you for having such great spirits and loving hearts. Scott and I felt truly welcome even without having a trailer.

Hope this link work. OH YEA Sorry about all the other Family albums.
