I love that name.

Now we just need to track down all the Cairo's in the US.

Funny, of all the places, I'd expect maine to have one. We have paris, mexico, poland, china, moscow, sidney (not quite sydney), denmark, sweden, norway, madrid, peru, belfast, stockholm, Rome, Verona, Sorrento, Palermo, Naples, vienna, - but no Cairo. Damn.

The seems to exist in (correct me if I'm wrong)

AL, AK, FL, GA, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, MS, MO, NE, NY, OH, OK, OR, TN, WV.

We also have plenty of "cape" towns:

Cape, Cape Anne, Cape Arthur, Cape Canaveral, Cape Carter, Cape Carteret, Cape Charles, Cape Coral, Cape Coral Area 2 Matlacha, Cape Coral Area 3, Cape Coral Boxes, Cape Coral Coralwood, Cape Cottage, Cape Elizabeth, Cape Elizabeth Cape Cottage Pond Cove, Cape Fair, Cape Fear, Cape Girardeau, Cape Girardeau Mo 637, Cape Haze, Cape Horn, Cape Isle Of Wight, Cape Junction, Cape Loch Haven, Cape Lookout, Cape May, Cape May Beach, Cape May Court House, Cape May Point, Cape Meares, Cape Neddick, Cape Nome, Cape Pole, Cape Porpoise, Cape Rosier, Cape Saint Claire, Cape Saint Claire Legion Avenue, Cape Saint John, Cape Sandy, Cape St Claire, Cape Story By The Sea, Cape Verde, Cape Vincent, Cape Yakataga

With all those; there has to be some way for everyone to make it to SOME kind of Cairo.

thanks. It would be nice to all converge upon the same Cairo, each different Capetown bearing origination flags and caravanning in as a group. I liked that forums international idea. Although a series of locations would be more accessable to more people perhaps.

And NO seminars, replace with sports and recreation. Schools out for vacation. Learn to knit or polish another time.

I would be willing to travel to Cairo MO, or Cairo IL if enough people were interested. Cairo, MO is just north of Columbia, MO and would be easy to get ot for us.

The prospect of having a national rally (Other than the International) at several places across the US could be a huge thing.

Add me to the list when more discussions come out about this.

Steve

I'd do the Cairo, IL to Cape Girardeau, MO...a nice SP (Trail of Tears) at Cape and just up the road a nice KOA in Perryville, MO. We'd probably take the "Great River Road" Route 3 down the IL side, When is Wally's bday again? I remember there being talk of take your AS out "anywhere" that weekend last year...National Airstream day.

I dunno, I think of such silly things sometimes.

Or are there other similarly named "Cape ... " to "Cairo" type places in the US that would work?
I like it. And since my passport is expired Africa is out of the question for now and also could by a problem on the way to PEI this summer. Will there be "Out of Africa" costume contests? sign us up.

Definitely "Africa themes" would be appropriate...politically correct of course.

Wally's birthday is 4th of July, ergo the WBCCI Internationals. I want to hear Pee Wee, from the rallies he has been to, the reports indicate that I have missed a great lot of story telling!

Colorado rally?

I'd be happy to find one in Colorado since Barb has suggested that since we've had the Safari 6 months, it's time to go to a rally. I've been sorting through all the rallies and am whelmed (not the same as whelped). All sorts of rallies where I don't want to be or during times when we've already set aside for other things. There was one that seemed a possible, but I'd have to chainsaw 4 feet off my Safari to fit, and I don't have a carbide chain and am unsure which end to cut off. There was a last minute BBQ last year on the Front Range and Gen'l Rodney vaguely suggested he might plan one in Colorado someday, but now he wants to go the Northwest. We're going to NYC, sans Safari, from Mid-May for 3 weeks, maybe NW with (I just used up all my French) Safari in September. I am confused by 3 different rally subforums and a convenient calendar that not everyone uses. There's someone in Paonia that has 4 Airstreams, so maybe we can drive 17 miles and just camp in the street next to them. I'd love to find out if Zep actually looks like his avatar and what's in that glass to do that to him. Help me before I do something constructive!

Ahh, the Daily Show is on now. I'll feel better soon.

Gene
