who's going to the TCT Fall Campout in Milford?

Just wondering who might be going to the Tin Can Tourists Fall Campout 2008 next weekend in Milford Michigan.

Fall Campout and Flea Market – at Camp Dearborn –September 18-21, 2008

The Fall Street Dance will feature the First Ugly Sweater Contest. Dig deep in the closet and get ready.

We went in the spring Carol, but we will miss the fall rally. Hope you have a good time, we may see you up north in a few more weeks.

Thanks Dave. I hope you can come to Mackinaw too, that would be so cool! Gotta get in as much as we can before the snow flies.

This fall rally sounds like a lot of fun too.

"Everyone should know about the competition, so they each can make and bring their own Tin Can CAN-dalabra to see who really will make the best picinic centerpiece out of tin cans... we will really be competing about everything this fall, the ugly sweater, the carved pumpkins, and now the "Martha Stewart" camping edition of dressing up your table with a CAN-dalabra for the fall meet....we will have it all, vintage RV home tours, clothing competition, the food pumpkin competition, the delayed IPod music competition, who can bring the best junk stuff for the flea market,..... and now the Tin Can CAN-dalabra table decoration contest....terry"

The rally was a blast and signed up for next year and looking forward to the Spring Annual Gathering in 09.

I went with Laura (Airedale) in her sweet Caravel and we had a stellar time! We caught up with Toasty and Wagon Giril and sfuqua from the forums, John Truit, and many others.

I saw David Winick and his custom 1950 Flying Cloud for Bob Wheeler, now for sale... if only I could... AHHHH that is THE most beautiful and stunning 13 panel mirror finish interiors I have ever seen! The reflections were delightful. He even has the midrange and tweeter speakers separated and 12" subwoofer all intregrally installed and the music bathes you in an audio panacea, contrasting linoleum Airstream insert at the entrance step, stunning workmanship and materials. If you liked the 75th anniversary editions you would literally stop dead in your tracks and never want to leave this one!

I saw the one of a kind vintage Airstream custom made with opening end windows that resembles the Curtis Wright trailers. I saw and learned about so many unique trailers, such as an aqua car that was matched to a prototype trailer, the Minnow. Cool stuff...the entire rally, people and trailers and motorhomes and buses and tear drops were very cool and appointed with all manner of vintage accents. There was an ugly sweater contest and a can-delabra contest that lit up the tent with wonderful "can" lighting, and a dance and camp fire. A spontaneous performance broke out of Tina Turner's Rolling on the River by some women who really put their all into it, quite good actually and sooo much fun to watch. Laura, her sister Holly and I went geocaching. About all we didn't get to do is sleep enough.

My album is here:

Here's a few pictures from the album.

Now the contest was to make a CAN-delabra. And this one stood out right away among the others...

So next year when I ask who's going, I hope to hear from more of you and meet up with you there! It's a great time in a beautiful park. See you soon.
