Apple Crisp

Several folks have asked for my Apple Crisp recipe, so here it is:

Apple (or Rhubarb) Crisp

Crust
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup oatmeal

Mix together. Save about a quarter of the mixture to crumble on top. Press 3/4 of the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Add 6 cups of sliced apples on the crust. I used Granny Smith but Wealthy or McIntosh are better.

Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons corn starch
1 Tablespoon cinnemon

Combine and boil until syrupy. Pour hot syrup over apples and crumble remaining crust mixture on top. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Enjoy.

WOW! Such an event! I love reading this thread and it appears everyone had a fabulous time. Love the bridge crossing photo! We, unfortunately, were not in our Airstream as we crossed the States, but had the incredible honor to meet both SoldierMedic and "Mr. Wee", by happenstance, at the top of the Arch...imagine that! Must be magnetic aluminum fate, or the AS t-shirt Steve was wearing that I called him on! Great idea to wear your t-shirt or our paths may have never crossed except here on AirForums! PeeWee, it was wonderful to chat with you! Best of luck on all your future ventures!

- Lynda & Jim

Peewee

I just left the question and answer session with PeeWee....SOOOOoooo
interesting! What a privilege to spend the weekend with PeeWee and the rest of the caravan. To hear stories about the 1959 African Caravan from an attendee was Priceless! .... Thank you PeeWee, Steve and Amy for making this a Spectacular event.
Steve and Amy an extra special thank you for your hard work, detail and dedication to this and all events you host...You guys are the best!

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.

Mike,
Our thanks to you and Scott for making such a long drive to document by photo and video our rally. You guys are definitely a part of this rally's success. So glad you could make it. Just let us know what kind of trailer you want and we'll start looking.

We had the BEST time.

THANKS to all who made our first rally (without a trailer) such a wonderful event. We loved every minute of it and have determined 2 hours for an open house is not nearly long enough.

We learned so much and regret that we didn't get to talk to everyone, there just wasn't enough time... We've got GREAT ideas for finishing our trailer and I am ready to jump back in (come on Mike!)

Steve & Amy - you guys are superstars and we look forward to attending another one of your rallies! Your attention to detail is amazing. And thanks for getting Pee Wee to come, his stories were really fun. We really enjoyed his scrapbook.

We love our mini toaster oven (that is big enough for a cracker) and have put it next to the collection of items to go in the trailer when it's finished. You wont be seeing it again unless you tour our trailer!

I hope we all cross paths again really soon!



Tina and Mike

A big THANK YOU to Steve & Amy for a fantastic rally. This was one of the best I've ever attended - particularly the caravan to Cairo, IL and back on Fri. Enjoyed it very much even though I didn't manage to get one of the coveted chairs in the prize drawings. Hope Dacia gets over her illness quickly. I left this morning and am in Red Hills State Park, IL where I'll rest up for a day or so before heading for Jackson Center and will then be heading for the Turkey Run rally in two weeks. Hope everyone had a safe trip home.

A small update

We arrived home today around 1 PM and finished unpacking around 2 PM. Amy and Pee Wee are both asleep, and I am trying to stay awake as I have to go on call fro 6 PM to 6 AM.

I just spoke with Sugarfoot, and she says she is feeling MUCH better than since she spoke with Mr. Hobo.

I want to thank everyone who attended the rally, or helped out in some way. Those who donated prizes especially have my gratitude, as you made drawings last night a very fun time. To Mike Johns and your video partner in crime, thanks for making the trip out, and covering a great event. Thanks to the local media folks for covering us as well. A huge thanks to Mollie's cafe who's catered meal recreating the last meal in Africa was absolutely phenomenal.


There was another article published this morning in the Southeast Missourian, so please feel free to check it out. There were two typos, but still good.
Airstream caravan 're-creates' 1959 trip from Cape Town to Cairo


Here is the caravan video.

I'll live . . .

. . . but this morning I wasn't so sure. Thanks everyone, for your well wishes. I've slept all day and I'm doing much better than when Airstream Hobo talked with me. Many thanks to Amy and Steve for setting things up so I could stay one more night without moving the Airstream. I'm feeling well enough to probably leave in the AM. To ease anyone's mind who may be concerned, I DO NOT have the flu. Just a nasty upper respiratory virus.

Wow, the photos are great, everyone's! This rally was awesome. Steve and Amy, you really know how to put on a production. The Cape to Cairo caravan is certainly one to remember. Only those who have done it know the thrill of seeing an endless line of Airstreams in the rear view mirror caravanning with you.
