Down here in Oklahoma I think I could put the Argosy anywhere in my yard and it would be next to water. Actually I could drive it not far down the road and get some great pics of it standing in the water running over the road. We can't even put our boat into the lake because the road to the boat ramp is no longer visable. Last year the ramps didn't reach the water, now there is water everywhere....and it's still raining. Getting a picture of the trailer by water wouldn't be difficult.

Sorry . . . Maybe you could hook up and come visit very dry and really hot southern Idaho; you could fill up with sunshine (uh, unless the surrounding fires send smoke our way)!!

Does it matter what form the water is in?

Juel,

Those are wonderful pictures of Lake Eufaula. Thank you so much for sharing them.

I grew up in Shawnee and my folks had property on Lake Eufaula (Southport, if you know that place) back in the 60's. It was a kind of family compound. All the aunts and uncles and my parents pulled extremely long SOB's on the land and fixed them up for weekend camping. I guess they are called "camp models" now. Back in the 60's, they were just long trailers. They all fixed 'em up really pretty with extra rooms, basements, landscaping and such.

My grandmother, a widow, bought an old Airstream from a local dentist. It was nestled in and among the other long trailers and hooked up to the septic, electric and water well. She built a cute little patio complete with an outdoor firepit and enjoyed fishing and watching the grandkids. She and I had great conversations about life sitting on that little stone patio. It was a wonderful time except for the poison ivy, mosquitoes and the copperheads.

After my Grandmother passed on, the Airstream was sold to someone who hauled it off to fix up. I often wonder what happened to my grandmother's Airstream and believe in my heart that it is out there someplace, lovingly restored and used for new adventures. That Airstream was part the inspiration for our Bambi purchase.

My parent's SOB was sold to a world champion noodler. That is a person who catches catfish with bare hands through the muck and mud. and, as you know, Eufaula has lots of mud and big catfish. One night, I watched "Dirty Jobs" on the Discovery Channel and surprise, surprise, there was my folks' old place, the noodler and the Dirty Jobs team wading around for catfish.

Thanks again for the pictures that brought up great memories of good times at Lake Eufaula!

Caryl

Revised version of one of my entries - pine lined campsite rather than birch, better lighting for color, added a cute 'model' and a boat (not man made, manufacturer by robots so hope I don't loose points there)...



Not for the contest, but thought I would add a shot of what Kate was watching from the dock...



Storm arrives just to the left of our Bambi...



And the subsequent sheet lightning show... Unfortunately I couldn't get the Bambi quite in the shot... next time!! Had the water and 'color' at least ha ha...

Gosh Dave, those are great pictures. That sheet lightening is really neat and I'm impressed with how well it showed up in the pictures. What do you have for a camera?

You sure have a nice set up where you are at.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, they are pretty neat.

Barry

Canon Rebel XTi and a few different lense. That was a 30 second exposure and it was almost dark so the time lapse worked well.

Airstream by the Sea of Cortez

I love morning light. This one was taken in March of 2006, during a forums rally.
