Signed up early

Been signed up since 4/15/08 "TAX DAY".

Seemed fitting after writing Uncle Sam a check.

I must have been one of the "Early" guys.

It will only be myself on the trip now. MaryKim and Virginia are staying home(her sister is coming into town). Paulie has a play weekend!!! Only bad thing, I'll have to leave on Sunday midday, have a 6:00am flight out to Denver on Monday.

Hmm.. well- my two burner stove is disassembled on the back porch. I'm going to try and have the kitchen back in for the trip. I guess I could pick up a tin box oven to set on top... I've never baked a pie though- always a first time I take it storebought pies are a no no?

If anyone is coming through Cumberland, MD, mind caravanning?

Exclamation Electric update

Whoops, never mind what I wrote in post #193. Turns out we managed to "find" some more electricity, so everyone will have at least some juice. No need to worry. I hope.

Rich, will we be able to park the truck with the trailer or do we have to move them to a parking lot?

Count me in for an elderberry or two!

This will be a learning experience as I've never baked in my GT oven yet! Oh...come to think of it, I haven't slept in it yet either! The Globetrotter...not the oven!

BTW, I'm a new at this and looking forward to meeting everyone!

looking forward to meeting Robin and seeing the 18 "footer".

I was being baked in my trailer this week. Not the oven. The trailer was Hot! 2airs pie rally is a great idea...in October. I think with all the reflecting metal we may have to try a solar oven of some sort. Besides, who wants to be pie making in the galley when we could be out and about in vintageworld.
I still want my pie Frank. And your apron better be color coordinated with your Overlander's interior. Extra points will be added to your concours judging score.

ps. I did think about putting my head in the oven a few times during the restoration. but I'm OK now. really.

Gary, When Wally was traveling through Africa and he had the urge for some pie, do you think Stella said, "No, Wally it is too hot to bake a pie for you"? Maybe this is not a good example, cause Wally used the oven for shoe storage, but you get the idea. I brought up the idea of baking pie to show that not only are our trailer old, but they can be used for good old fashion entertaining. My Great Grandmother always baked pie for any guest that came to visit. I always see pie as a form of peace offering, much like the peace pipe was for the natives of this country. It is very hard to be angry when you have a bite of fresh peach pie in your mouth, for a matter of fact it causes you to relax and smile a lot. I am urging folks to bake pie to show that these tin tubes are more than just places to sleep, that they are a home on wheels. What says "welcome home" more than fresh baked pie? Haven't you ever wondered why the exhaust fan is right over the stove? That was a design feature that was developed on the first caravan to Mexico so the women could bake pies(it was the early 50"s and women did it back then, Finally we have advanced and I, as a man, am allowed to bake pie) and all the heat from the hot oven could be pulled to the outside. That exhaust fan was one of the first "from the road" design changes made and it was all due to pie. I understand you come from Maine, where a 65 degree day is wicked blazing hot for you, but I appeal to your sense of diplomacy (and Wally legacy) to bake a pie...

For Gary: A peach
For Yukionna: rhubarb and blueberry
For Rob Baker: shoe fly

The smell of pie will fill the air in Saratoga New York

I am also into Potluck suppers... are we having a few of those? If nothing is planned, I want to offer an informal potluck at my trailer. Ask any that attended the East Coast Vintage Rally a couple of weekends ago... I know how to turn potluck into a major party...

Some vehicles will be moved a short distance away, but in the same general area (maybe 100-200 feet from your trailer).

Frank,
We are planning on Peach Cobbler. Melissa and I are all in for a potluck or 2 or 3!! We have plenty of propane for all of our baking needs!
We could call it the VTJFPL (Vintage Trailer Jam Forum Pot Luck) or some other name that will best suit!
