That's right, the '85 Sovereign that Lou has been talking about is finally in his possession. I dropped it off today and picked up the check (although upon closer inspection that check looks a little funny - are they supossed to be made out in crayon?).

Anyway, we now have visitation rights for the Sovereign and need to make sure it is being cared for in the manner to which is was accustomed. What better way to check up on it than at Louapalooza III?

See ya all there!!!

P.S. We plan to pull down on Friday to experience the entire Rally this year.

P.P.S. I guess I've got to get a new Avatar soon.
Yes, the Sovereign that I have been "hinting at" is finally parked out on my driveway. As a matter of fact, I am writing this while sitting in it. Hey Lorrie, I have my feet on the couch and there is grass clippings ALL over the floor!
PSYCH! Not really! Although I do not know where I am gonna hang my big ole Confederate flag! Plus, there is barely enough room in the fridge for my case of Pabst Blue Ribbon!
I have already taken the liberty to put out the awning and throw out the ole lawn chairs and sit and watch the cars go up and down my street.
Joe and I were made aware of one problem of parking your Airstream so close to the neighbor's front porch. The reflection off of the side of the trailer LIGHTS UP my neighbor's porch like it had a flood light on it!
Yes, the trailer that I had mentioned was Joe and Lorrie's trailer. I figured I would leave you all guessing!

What IS the official count at the moment and are we getting near the cuttoff for number of spaces?
We have a total of 26 or 27 sites available. Heck, I am not even worried if we run outta spots! We have plenty of room in the middle of the circle for all the latecomers... like Carol!

Not everyone is on the Rally page, nor is it the definitive list. As long as we are under 24 we are in fine shape. The campground has that many sites in the group area and several other sites close by. We haven't hit critical mass yet. I do need to nail this list down and that will be one of my to do's this week.

Anyone intending on going that hasn't spoken up, now would be a really good time to do so.
Hey, I was stuck on the Bluewater Bridge for 5 1/2 hours! The Thursday after 9/11. I got on the bridge at 9 p.m. and did not get off of it until 2:30 a.m.! I was in Canada for work during 9/11. I ended up staying two extra days because of the border being closed! Trucks were stacked up on the 402 for 30 miles before the bridge.
I do believe that there are two or three adjacent sites in the group area so we will be good for up to 26-27. After that we will have to "hot bunk" as they would say in the Navy!

Thanks!
I am pretty proud of it too. As a matter of fact, the neighbor that cannot stand me, (you know the one that says nice things to your face and then says the opposite to another neighbor), even commented, "Nice trailer." I then said, "Thanks, I am pretty happy about it." She then replied, "No. Really, it is a nice trailer." I think she has a clue that I know how she is!
Come rally time I am hoping that she will be all washed and ready. If not then she will be dirty.

Newcomer - again

Hey all -

Is there still room for one more?

We were signed up to come out last year for the rally but had to bail out at the last minute due to some unpleasantness in our lives.

But that is behind us and we are ready to join the ranks of the other Airstreamers living in our midst.

We plan on arriving on Friday afternoon/early evening and look forward to meeting everyone we have read about, even Lou

Welcome to the group! At this Metro Detroit Rally there is always room for one more. Even if we have to make a spot!!! We have had a great time at each one and made some great friends. Hope you are able to join us this time.

Hope to finally see you, Retro! We need a Bambi to take the place of Tallzach's, as I haven't heard from them. There's still room. That looks to make the count 22. So far, so good!

PS: I may need to see DR Brothers about my compensation problem, but if you were "conceived in an Airstream" it sounds to me like you may soon be on an episode of Jerry Springer.

Anyway Luv You man cant wait for LPPI 3.0 " The Motown Getdown"

OK, you all..I hate to be technical....but technically speaking this is rally #4. We have #1 at Covenant, #2 was a Ja-Do, #3 was at Grass Lake. We can't help if you all helped plan the #2 rally and did not show up. LeeAnn, Harold, Larry and I made itand had a great time ! Just because "the Lou" did not show up does not mean we didn't have a rally!!! Sorry you missed it, Lou!
LOL!!!

If several Airstream's gather in a campground and Lou was not there, was it really a rally?

Really a rally! Lou W. has that pegged correctly, Joe. That was the fall rally after the annual earlier in the year, only Lou P. was not able to attend at the last minute. So would that be the Louapalooza 1.5? It's not the size that counts.

3 or 4

I stand corrected , the Fall Rally did happen and absolutly counts.

Therefore this would be rally #4.

Those members with perfect attendance should receive gold stars indicating they have attend every rally.


There are two other LPPI events that we must also count.

The Pizza party in Rochester and the Fireside Get together in Lou's Basement.

That's a great idea! It also got me to thinking that we don't have an emblem or logo. We need some graphics!!!!!!!!!!!!
