Driveway Rally

Well there was only one Airstream in attendance but a great time was had at loudruffs driveway campout / cookout. Glad they invited us and happy to have met artstream. We forgot to take Charlies calender and will have to remember to carry extra copies. Charlie and Belle loved the attention. The hawks where a great nature show right in the back yard. Gotta go off to work now just wanted to say thanks again for the invite.

Hey guy's!
Yup, it was really nice meeting you both at the Loudruffs driveway/cookout rally. I'm looking forward to that calander of yours!

Best,
Michael

company came

Larry and I were sad to see Michael, AKA Artstream, leave the courtesy parking spot this morning. We had a great time visiting and getting to know him. He has a wonderful outlook on life. And we all had alot of fun!
Here are some pictures of the adventure!

braking in our courtesy parking

While we were having fun, Larry and Michael decided to tackle a brake job on Artstream's E350 truck. They were able to replace some worn parts and get it all together nicely on a few VERY hot Ohio days. We had to erect some shade to get it done. Looked like hillbilly heaven!

bird watching

Between all of the brake breaks and shopping, we did some bird watching. Michael took some gorgeous pictures of the pair of baby red tailed hawks that are fledging. This year was the second year that the male and female built a nest in our tall pine tree. Michael did a great job of capturing some of their flights. Here are a couple that I took, but they don't even come close to the ones that Michael got!! Thanks, Michael!

Hi, I like that idea, "Driveway Rally". Great pictures too. Show and tell us more. Maybe I should have a "Driveway Rally" / Barbeque / potluck at my home.

Great idea, Bob. Can I share your sewer hook-up like at Casini? And would we be able to enter our coaches where we park?

Back on the road and in Illinois today, my visit to the "Loudruffs Driveway Rally" was "spoiling" for this traveling man. Lou and Larry, you two were so welcoming and went way-way out of your way making me feel at home in your spacious , full hook-up driveway!

Larry, thanks for all the chauffeuring around Ohio, for tire and brake parts, not to mention all the expert help in getting all the brake parts back together. Lou, thanks for all the wonderful handmade cards and food, and to you both for all your generosity, warm hospitality, and thoughtful parting gifts!

Till next we meet, warmest regards,

Michael
AKA "Artstream"

Invite

The whole idea with our courtesy parking is to offer fellow Airstreamers a place to stop by and have a visit. We are, for the most part, stuck at home taking care of my elderly parents. Dad has Alzheimer's and dementia is setting in big time. We live across the street from them. So we figured if we can't get away for many campouts, we would invite folks to stop by and camp here. Camping vicariously through others! Larry worked as we built the house to do the additional electrical, water, sewer tap, wifi etc. Then this summer he added a little fire ring and loads of outdoor furniture.

Can't wait to see the installment with Belle too. She is such a cutie! Charlie too, of course.
