Here is the finished product. No more fish bowl wing windows:

Sorry about this I pushed the wrong button so i have to add this commentary in edit.
We held an impromptude open house this afternoon. The newest TAC member here in Ontario was able to drop in and she was welcomed by all. We got to tour a CCD, a 67 Safari and a really neat 58 GT. These are the shots from the open house.
I've got to go I'm missing out on the campfire chat. More later.

All Good Things Must End

I've heard this expression lots of times, now I fully understand what it means.
I can honestly say that this is the first time ever that I felt sad that the campers were leaving. The three days just flew by and I feel lonesome and lost now that they have all left.
I made lots of new friends and listened to some great stories, saw lots of diferent Airstreams. I will miss them all deeply and can't wait until we can have another rally here.
We did manage to gather this morning for a couple of group shots in between small bouts of rainfall.

Here are a few shots of the caravan on it's way out of the park. They are still shots because I couldn't figure out how to shoot video with my camera. they are in sequence so if you flip through them fast it seems like a movie.

Many many thanks to Jason for suggesting this rally and a great big thank you to Doug for promoting it so well.
Maybe next year the TAC Canada rally will have 30 attendees. I can only hope so as I would love to meet more friends.

Where's your local dealer? Hanover? Or London?

Sorry we couldn't make it, Chris. We're going camping this weekend, otherwise we'd have loved to come up to Grey Cty. I have relatives up there and everything.

Hi Kevin long time no chat. The "local dealer" is the only dealer in Ontario. Can Am RV in London. They are local by forums standards as people all over North America may be reading this. Not so local to here, two hours away.
There's always next year if we get one organized for you to attended.
Have you thought about joining TAC?

Chris,

There's also one here in Ottawa, although the last time I was there, the only evidence of their Airstream status was the fact that they had two of the smaller AS trailers on display.

Thanks for the link. I have been wondering what TAC meant.

Wow Chris you didn't waste any time getting the pics up - they are great! We made new friends and really enjoyed ourselves at our first AS rally. You were a great host and made us all feel right at home.
The sites you fitted us into gave us the feeling of a small AS village.
Your '73 looks great so far - all the best with the rest of the restore.
Thanks again.

You're entirely welcome Sharleen. It was indeed a pleasure meeting you and I enjoyed myself as much if not more than everyone else.
Thank you for the compliment on the trailer and I hope to one day be able to use it at some other rallies.

Is that the original interior of a 1960's era Safari I see watching the "Wheel of Fortune"?

Looks like you all hit the Jack Pot on your trip.

We are now at the detroit metro really in MI. We had a great time traveling with everyone in Canada. I can't believe that what was to be a family vacation of one airstream traveling around turned into 4 carlisle, 5 (including Rodger's SoB) caravanning north to Durham, and then 4 caravanning to Doug's. Pinery Park was great. Excellent swimming in lake huron, great camping. Doug: we met some fellow Airstreamers...sent some business your way. Thanks to Doug for really promoting this event to fellow Airstreamers in the area. I hope we can do it again next year. But Chris, you're gonna have to find some more spots if you want 30 of them there!

Hi Jason I hope you have a great time at the DM rally. Well maybe 30 is a bit optimistic. I do have room for 23 if need be. If we plan this far enough in advance I can block all the sites in the park just for the rally.

A few pictures from my collection from the trip. There's more of the tractors than Chris's park, but that's where more action was. Chris's park was filled with lots of wonderful socializing, not so many photo ops. Rodger, if you're reading, thanks for the experience. I hope to visit you again in the future and drive your tractors some more. Maybe next time the boys will be old enough to drive, or at least to hold the steering wheel straight. Mason couldn't be removed from the tractors. You can see that from the smile on his face. There was apparently something in the creek at Rocky Park that Mason loved. I loved the restoration lesson. Thanks Doug, I learned a lot about bucking rivets that I hope to never have to use.
