First Arrival

Larry & Sylvia win the early bird prize by being the first to arrive here.
There very nicely done 64 Overlander came with them.
By the way for any of you coming we are the only campground on the road so don't drive past the first one you see, otherwise you'll have quite an adventure climbing the goat path at the top of the road to get turned around.
I'll post a picture of the 1st in and the entrance soon.

Turn in Here

Here is the view of the main entrance so none of you miss it and have to make the arduous climb up that hill like Larry needed to do. By the time I got out to try and go get them they had already gone up turned around and were on the way back down to the park.

They are in now and getting set up. Once I get their permission I'll get a shot of them on site.

Great Doug, Larry and I are axiously awaiting you arrival so you can tell us all about those Rumely's. We both want to know from Rodger how they work all all the stories about them.
Tell Jason I'll have some cold Blue waiting for him when he gets here.
I'll also have some pizza from the local shop that I can get with a coupon.

Those Rumely tractors are really something. Seeing machinery like that always makes me try to think back to the first owner, and the pride he must have felt having such wonderful new technology for himself.

Some flywheels they had, huh? And of course, they were well before there was the "streamlined" style influence. Nor, of course, did they need it.

Hey, you all have a great time out there in Beautiful Southern Ontario, got my fingers crossed for good weather for you all!

They have arrived

It was the coolest sight I have ever seen. I looked up the road just before noon and over the crest of the hill came 4 A/S in tow all gleaming in the mid day sun. Shortly behind them was the SOB 5er also attending and while discussing site location the 6th A/S also showed up.

We got everybody on to their sites with no problem. Each site was chosen according to the trailer size and all fit well. Everyone got set up while I ordered the pizza for lunch and then I handed out the rally shirts. We ate, we talked, and we laughed.

Then the men all came over to look at my trailer and the progress or lack of it so far.
Jason's two boys have already made friends and were playing in the park. Then they discovered the pool so they just had to go swimming.

Doug has taken the men up to the local sawmill and lumber/hardware/tool store. The sawmill just had it's annual wood show and expo this weekend and have lots of deals left on woodworking tools etc.

I got busy with the rest of the campground for a while but I think the women have gone for a walk around the park to get the lay of the land.

Airstream School

So this morning the weather wasn't the greatest. It started out raining lightly then picked up a bit. So after breakfast the ladies all headed out for some retail therapy and the men all gathered at my trailer for a lesson from Doug in buck riveting. I already had the new curbside wing window cleco'ed in place ready to be bucked in. Once the window was removed again and butyl tape applied the window went back in and everyone got a chance to watch Doug buck it in.
We moved on to removing the roadside wing window by drilling out the rivets and trying to remove the locking bar that holds it to the center window. The bar wouldn't budge so now we are going to try and free up the window from the shell to release the tension on the bar. All the old vulkem on the inside needs to be removed so everyone broke for a beer break and left me to scrape off the vulkem. Class should resume before happy hour this afternoon.
we may even get on to some polishing lessons later if anyone is interested in trying.

Keep the stories coming

Great posts and much appreciated. The photos are great, although I'm still jealous we couldn't be there. Have fun, but keep posting.

Open House

Late this afternoon after I got the other window ready the guys came back over and Doug got the other window bucked in. We even had non-airstreamers attend. they were enthralled at how these trailers are put together, asking lots of questions about riveting, cleco's and how well they trailers last. they now know why are might just be visiting our local dealer soon.
