Now that the weather is cooling off, (its only 96 right now), we are franticly working on having this project rolling for this get together.

ThanX for the update.

It'll be good to see you and maybe some other faces to go with names from this forum.

Cool Vintage Get Together

Things are really firming up for the get together. We'll have food (probably hot dogs and sausage wraps, etc.) and we will probably have the Austin Banjo Club out there to serenade us (I'm a member). We are to have the local A/S dealer out there with his yellow-painted vintage Bambi. Magnum trailers should be there, also, with some hitch, brake, and axle expertise. Should be some door prizes, also.

This is for everyone, not just WBCCI members. This is not a formal WBCCI event. We would like non-members to meet our folks, but we're not doing this for arm twisting. We want you out there WBCCI member or not, vintage owner or just interested in vintage A/S.

PeterH-79MH and BobbyW

PeterH-79MH

I hear you already have been out to check out the layout and reserve at the RV park. Great. It will be neat to meet you.

BobbyW

Trailer ready or not, I hope you can make it.

I may pull the International out for anyone who hasn't seen the new International yet.

Yes, John, we took a ride out there 1 1/2 weeks ago and I met Myron Fischer. He was working in his yard when we drove by (he has a great piece of property out there). I pulled over and introduced myself and mentioned your name.
We made reservations for Saturday night at the Camper Resort (512-266-1562). They have 45 spots right at the lake.
The campground is a little tricky to find for people not familiar with Hudson Bend.
If anyone plans on going and wants to meet up with us in Austin Saturday morning for the ride out there, please let me know.

A map for those who are coming

Not hard to find at all. Those who want to stay overnight (including me) can stay at the campground at half price.

Anyone who is coming needs to call the numbers listed on this link and say they are coming.

Thumbs up

Confirmed our attendance today with Myron Fischer. I ask him, since our 79MH is 11 month away from being vintage, if he wanted us to be part of the vintage open house afternoon. He said he had a perfect place for us to pull in.
Sounds like it will be a great event.

Weather forecast

According to the long-range forecast, things are looking very good for our vintage weekend. The forecast is for mid-60s and mostly clear skies during the day and low 40s at night. Light winds.

Perfect sweater weather to enjoy the rally during the day and a snug Airstream overnight.

Yesterday was to have been in the 50s, but it must have been warmer than that. I spent the afternoon outdoors in the sun in just a long-sleeve shirt over a T-shirt.

Pahaska,
I need to see if they will have any room for my Minuet, think there is any? I have got all the contact info. I will probably just spend the day there. I am still pretty busy working on my Overlander, taking advantage of the good (cold) weather to get my new roof vent caps on and do some exterior sealing.

Chas

Is there room

You need to give Myrion Fischer a call to say you are coming with or without your trailer so that he can plan for how many folks will be there. It is at his place, which I haven't seen yet myself, and he will know the space situation.

His number is 512-266-3488 and more details are on my web page at http://irwin.home.texas.net/HLU-VW.html

Talking Weather

Unfortunately, the forecast has slowly deteriorated over the last week. Currently, it is for a high of 48 and 20% chance of rain. The long range forecast had been for mid 60s and partially cloudy. Well, we're hardy sould (at least some of us).

Tonight will probably be the coldest night of the year; maybe even in the teens here in the hills. I just noticed as I went out for the paper that my neighbor has a garden hose still hooked to an unprotected outside faucet. It is a young couple and maybe they don't know better. I need to put a note on their door to warn them.

As soon as I finish my coffee, I'm going over to the storage yard to bring the Airstream home and putter around in it today. First thing in the AM, I'll put some water in the fresh tank and be on my way to Hudson Bend. Tomorrow night we'll be in the Airstream and it is expected to be in the 40s.
