Pretty well packed and ready to go first thing tomorrow. I am planning on leaving around 8 am- and Andy will leave after work - around 5 pm. I am a little nervous about my first solo tow experience (but I am sure there will be someone there wiling to help me park and level it when I get there ). Looks like the weather should be pretty nice and there will be a good turn out! Anyone know the mapquest address I should use? See ya'll when we get there!

All Packed!!! Family was warned that I expect to leave at 7AM. Which means I'll drive away at 9. But I will not get foul. Promise. Can't wait to see you all. Unfortunately I did not get to make a pie. A thousand apologies.

I am in central New York at Rob's house courtesy parking and taping episode 74 of the Vintage Airstream Podcast. We will be towing over in the morning and should be there by noon. I am looking forward to getting there and meeting everyone.... pie for all on saturday, or until it runs out.

Smile Yay, April! No worries Skip!

Go for it, April! I am towing in by myself as well, and will likely need help parking, family following later. Was supposed to arrive today, Thursday, but stuff happened and I didn't want to end up in a parking lot all alone :-)

Hey Skip, I made TWO pies, a Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie and a Sweet 'n Tart Lime Pie, so no worries! I just hope I can find the pie people in the crowd Look for the newer 25' AS that needs a washing w/ black crew cab truck (also needs washed!) and lead us to pie!

Also have a delicious Chille Rellenos quiche ready to bake for the breakfast potluck, but will need help finding that group too. Memory is tricky these days, my Mom calls it Part-Timers

See you all there!

Hehe- I'm on my way! 400 miles down! Picked up Puck from shop at 5 this afternoon- they managed to get the remains of the fused bearing off and get two new ones on. They weren't able to get a good seal on the backing washers to the hub (weird 40 year old German parts)- so it is spinning out some grease, but the hub isn't getting hot and it has been towing fine. Listening to the VAP to stay awake and downing coffee at 3am through the West Virginia hills- glorious! Just pulled into the driveway in Cumberland- going to grab some clothes and do a quick spray paint of my mottled fiberglass roof by lanternlight so it won't look quite so horrible and I'll be back on the road to Saratoga No kitchen- but I'll pick up some chow to share

Wow! I was SOOO bummed to not have left yesterday, but it was so weird that I just couldn't get out of here. Now I know why!

At 4:30 a.m. I awoke to the happy sound of all the birds chirping, and started to notice one that sounded kinda like a cat, but not quite. Hubby was sure it was some kind of bird (we do have Grey Catbirds around here, but they don't sound like cats to me). Around 5:15 a.m. I finally decided to investigate, as it was sounding much more catlike.

There was a shivering, muddy, sweet little KITTEN under our back porch!!!! She is absolutely adorable!

I will bring her with me to the Jam as I cannot leave her alone for four days with my three cats

See you after lunch!

Anyone want a little kitty?
I am calling her Birdie

Check out the story on Saratoga's Post Star front page this morning

Homes away from home :: PostStar.com

The actual paper had some cool stories

We just got back from spending the day at the JAM - lots of cool trailers, I got to meet alot of people, and hot!!!

It was 3 hours each way, but worth it to see our friends and make new ones! Lots of TRAILERITES there too!

Thanks

I just wanted to thank everyone - Frank, Skip, and probably a least dozen others whose name I forgot - who took the time to talk with me at the Jam open house and show me around their trailers and motorhomes. Hard to imagine a nicer group of people.

I've learned a lot in my 70s Airstream search from the VAP, reading the forums here, and looking at brochures and pictures online. But its amazing to be able to see so many trailers at one time. I went there wanting a Caravel. Nice and compact. Then I saw a Globetrotter or two and think "Hmmm, 3 feet more is kinda nice." And then I saw a Safari or 24'ish Argosy and think "Ooooh, roomy! And (usually) another axle!" (Can't say I envision sheparding a 345 Classic motorhome down the highway though....)

Thanks again. The hunt continues...
Tom

Great time!!!

Back at you Jason and Melissa!!! It was fun to be parked next to you all!! Boy was it a long haul back to Richmond, my first ever $300. day at the gas pumps...

If any one knows where my 4' bright yellow Stabila level ended up please let me know. I think I used it last helping a Shasta get level and I did not miss it till I was unpacking.

I promise to post some photos when I get unpacked!!

Abe-
I saw that level on a Shasta parked near you on Saturday. Maybe he's still got it? It was nice meeting you. Hearing Rob Baker actually admit that he likes a '70's era Airstream almost floored me! But then again, your trailer is no ordinary 70's era trailer!
