Coaching both my 5 year old and my 8 year old soccer teams does not leave me much time to convert my aluminum tent to an RV, but we will be there no matter what. We are staying at a full hook up resort near Niagara falls earlier in the week, so that should help.

I was thinking about the 5 gal fresh water thing, but my water tank is now holding. I bought some of the Scotchweld DP8005. Fresh tank has been full of 50 gallons for a week and I even bounced it down the road to see if 500 lbs of water would make it leak. Now on to the fridge!

Hey:

Ga 2 is still planning on being there. The trailer is going to do some traveling this summer. Leaving next weekend for Southern Illinois. After a week I will head back to Georgia and then my son will take it to Bonnaroo in Machester, Tn. to rock out with 3 days of wild craziness and bands, bands, and bands. He will bring it back then we will clean it wash everything and then head to NY.

I am looking foward to sitting down and talking to some good airstream techs so I can get some ideas.

Brian

Martin, You think you are excited? We have been planning this for a year now. The four hosts talk multiple times a day about all the details we need to cover. Poor Rob has been driving his mow rig around the site in circles for weeks now working on that perfect manicured look. WE ARE TOTALLY STOKED MY MAN. And then there are guys like you trying to do your part like providing flags, the Coffee Czaris, The "do what benefits everyone with this check guy", the very generous corporate donations we are getting, and please do not forget the very generous person who won the Golden #80 spot and is going to give a helping hand to some local families in the area. I am so very grateful for what people are doing. It just seems so very natural to me.

And again a reminder we are having a food drive. I hope all that feel compelled will bring a bunch of canned food or non perishable food items. I, we hope we can make a significant contribution. Not those water chestnuts and cranberry relish in the back of the pantry. Things that people can possibly eat and enjoy.

We are thrilled to be a part of this. We've been excited about this rally since the end of last year when it first appeared here on the rally calendar when it was still a rally associated with that other club. We've even got a courtesy park arranged for our overnight stay on our way to the Bash. I'm taking Thurs, Fri off of work and Monday too so that we can enjoy the full effect of this rally.

I think I'm going to witness something spectacular that will set the bar for an Airstream rally. I'm thrilled to be a part of history in the making. I'm also PROUD to be a part of it. Such sharing of costs, sacrifice of personal time for the enjoyment of so many people, and such consideration and intentional concentration on top of all that for the greater good of those in need is just amazing. Thanks to all of you that have been core workers on this rally for making it great before it has even taken place.

Birthday Bash was never associated with that 'other club'. that would have broke the 'other club's' rules which stipulates no wbcci rallies during international. just offering clarification here.

Dave, that is not a correct clarification. Sorry.

Baker's Acres looks amazing, Rob. You've put in a lot of hard work for this, and it's going to be a fantastic rally.

I sure do feel sorry for those forced into the bull pen, though...
