Northern California: Are you local?

Pardon the "League of Gentlemen" reference, but I was curious if there are any other "local" Airstreamers on this forum, thinking that it would be fun to meet, and perhaps if needed, have a sort-of barn raising, you know, help each other with weird projects, or at least come over and offer unsolicited comments. Or, get together to all re-glaze our windows together, like a knitting bee. I've been working on my Globetrotter for 5 years, on and off, and have done it totally solo. It's been fun to talk to others working on old Airstreams, and thought it would be fun if there were others in the area, that is, for me, from Fort Bragg CA south to San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley, up to Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, Willits. I live on the Sea Ranch, which is 27 miles north of the mouth of the Russian River.

Peter

check out the Casini Ranch Rally in April.
I have friends that camp at that place past Jenner, nice, rustic, etc. Most rally people want hook ups, I'm not one of those types, my rig is self contained. so there s a little something for U.

Hi Peter,

You will find quite a few forum members are "local". Casini would be an excellent idea.

Hey DG. My wife is from Lodi, and we go there frequently. Do they ever have RV spaces available at the Grape Festival?

Hey, thanks. There is an awesome bakery in Duncan's Mills, near there. I'll be away a lot of April and May, but the rally sounds like fun. My rig is sort of rough and I don't care about hookups. The river was quite high there last week, I don't know if they had any flooding.

Hey Bebop

Airstreams in Berkeley... I had mine in my backyard in the Temescal district until we moved here.

Globie, if you want a good Airstream Bee, the Norcal Rally at Casini is the place for you! Please consider joining us. There will be lots of beautiful vintage models, as well as some newer versions, and many friendly folks willing to share their refurb. experiences, and more than happy to hear about yours.
I noticed you have another post about camping near Salt Point. Our nephew and family abalone dive every year and always stay at Salt Point in their RV. We might join them this year. It's just up the coast from Casini and we checked it out while we were at the rally last year. Boondocking and rustic, but we agree with Doorgunner: that's our kind of camping.
And we also checked out that bakery! Holy smokes.

27 miles north of Russian Rives should be close to Still Water Cove?
I am new Airstream owner and new to this forum as well, but will do my best to be at Casini.
Do you really tow with that Citroen? Have seen one last week in Berkeley. I think it was CV4 or something similar. They sure do here a statement.

I'll be away for Casini, but I heard about the one in 2005 and it sounded like a great time was had by all. If you make it to Salt Point, there is another fabulous bakery 10 miles further, in Sea Ranch, off Annapolis road, Two Fish, open Thursday to Sunday. We're about 29 miles from Casini, I have to go to the county building department in Santa Rosa tomorrow, I'll be driving right by it. Someone had mentioned a Ralley later in the summer, maybe it's annual, in Northern Ca?

No, I don't have the Citroen anymore. When I was growing up, there were a few Amis in Berkeley, in the 70s. Still water cove is south of here, maybe 12 miles or something. My office is in Gualala, and there is a nice park here too, on the Gualala river.

I checked into having a Forum Rally at the festival grounds just last month! They have a pretty good package available for different size groups, includes a common clubhouse thing with showers, bath and full kitchen.BUT it is somewhat difficult to get reservations there, mostly for groups, I did not ask about single units.
There are a few other places in the area, guess you'll have to check them out next time you are in "town".
P.S. The onion rings in the Brew Pub "downtown" are wicked good.

a wine festival sounds like a good place for a Rally.

Citroen was leading car manufacturer in 70's.
I think they were the first one to offer air suspension on passenger car.
With pull of the level you could change the clearance for freeway speeds, or going over bumps. 40 years ago.
For some reason they didn't make well in US and in Europe are just so-so.
Still some of those cars are quite impressive.

I"m all for it

I'm all for it. You might regret it if you saw the condition our rig is in right now...but I can do tedious things like remove old gasket, uncomplicated things that I can be shown how to do and then set loose...I'm not good at big projects. I could pitch in where I can, time allowing.
