Glad to hear everyone has had safe travels so far! I miss you guys already! Where's the campfire tonight? I can't find it!

Here's some more photos, including photos of the winning Ag71 (Marc & Sharon's) beauty.

There's some incredible workmanship in this trailer, and they did it themselves

DivaDebi's trailer got the second highest number of votes. I believe the following are photos of their "pad" on wheels.

Hi all. I am missing the campfire tonight. Last night I was exhausted (getting up at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday) I still can't believe I did that.

We had so much fun. I felt like part of the family from the start. Thanks for making this such a great rally for us. We are so looking forward to the spring. Ken has even said he would forgo his fishing trip if it lands on the same weekend.

Shane and Kathy--"stalking"? Sophia just missed her man. She started barking going down 44 and we just had to pull over and to our surprise her man Shane was just there. It was great shopping with you and now we have matching chairs. YEAH.

Thanks to Carol, Terry and Phyllis..great job ladies.

It was also great to meet our neighbors--Brad and Zell and Carol and Drew.

We have been talking all day about what we are going to do next. I'll keep you posted.

Nan

Looks like a great Rally!

I think I will set up a photo album for Air Midwest so that everyone can upload their photos and we can view them as a slideshow to make it easier to see them. I CAN'T GET ENOUGH!!!! I want them all together..... Virgo

Is that OK with everyone since I wasn't even there....hahahhahah But I have the excuse of being 6800 miles away on an island

Back to living in a house for now....

We are so happy to have met so many great new friends, and so blessed to have been able to spend time with our "old" ones from the Spring Rally. We had 22 trailers, I think, not including the Mark Twain (canned ham) which joined us. That's one cool little trailer, eh? I think about 50 people had dinner together Saturday night. And what a fine dinner it was! Every kind of delicious barbeque, and amazing sides, and yum, desserts. If there was a dessert prize, Glenda, I think you might very well win with that amazing cake, or the skillet pie. Glad you weren't there in the spring or I wouldn't have won that pie contest! LOL Just kidding, of course.

The trailers of AIR Midwest are wonderful. I think we even drew a few members of the public who just heard we were there and wanted to see our trailers. As for the MOHO, Irene & Dan, it's an Airstream and a wonderful one! We are so glad you happened to be in the "neighborhood" for the rally.

We had way too much fun. Sitting around the campfire every night with good friends, good drink, and wonderful music from Brian and his friend, who helped Brian entertain us with wonderfun campfire songs. We had campfires from Thursday until last night, when those of us who were left sat around together one more time, a bit forlorn with the rally over and many friends already gone. I think we just didn't really get in a partying mood, but wanted to visit and compare rally notes.

As for hosting, it was an honor. You all enrich our lives! I don't know who is going to host in the spring yet, but surely someone will decide to do it. If the rally is as big as this one was, there may need to be two couples hosting. And, I should add, that while Terry, Phyllis, and I have been called the hosts, Jay53, Mr. B., and Tim got volunteered for a lot of the heavy lifting - along with Joe, who was with us from the beginning and was with us sweeping and mopping the rec hall Saturday night!

I have more photos, still. I heard that collective, "ugh"....but I will post them all eventually, but for now, I guess I have to return to "real" life, or the fake one I live when I'm not in our Airstream.

It was one great rally. Not because I was one of the hosts, but because it's one great group of people who attend AIR Midwest. We'll get our heads together on the spring rally - and start a new thread for it, too, after we're all rested up from our blast of a weekend, ok?

I will send out the lists of attendees and contact information to everyone who was there soon.

I love reading these posts! This is truly a great group of people and it keeps growing! This is why we will never regret buying an Airstream and who knew a 19' trailer would come with so many great friends! Thank you all for a great weekend and we will help, just help with the next rally.

Love you all.

Brad & Zell

Kani, I think it would be cool to assemble the photos. You do mean on AIR Forums? I'm not so good with it, and don't know how to make an album on it.

Also, at the rally we were talking about getting the history of AIR Midwest put together. I think Steve started it in 2007, but it wasn't always at AA was it?

It's growing nicely. I mean who doesn't want to go to Branson in spring and fall? And hang out with other AS folks? Oh, yeah!

This Rally was a blast! Thank You everyone! From the initial "hey look it's Carol and Drew", to the final hugs, and hand-shakes it was great! Thanks also to everyone who took photos and are posting them.

Till next year, Happy Trails to all.

Carol & Drew
