Irish nope comes from the English Pubs I think - the malt beers were a bit strong for the ladies so they used to tone it down a bit with tonic water which led to ginger - hence came the ginger beer - the Shandy is a take from it for those who did not like the tast of 'ginger'

I just love the drink - you don't get too full it is very refreshing too. makes for a nice pitcher on a hot sunny day around the dock.

Themes....

63-Moonbeam-3 and go with all the same stuff again - that would be a no brainer and not much of a challenge but still cute nevertheless.

Rosie the Rusty Rivette - which is on the lines of the 'girl power' theme - I could have a ball with this one and what a hoot showing up to these Rivette Rallies with her all decked out with Rosie Stuff and inspirational who knows what...Could be the "girls tree house" on wheels. 'rusty' I'm not a red head but when I use Belle No.40 I do look pretty auburn! - and well the Rust - is apparently what happened with all the fertilizer stored in the trailer which turned all the appliances and god only knows what else rusty???? I would pick up on the blue colours from Rosies jump suit and the red pokadots from her scarf would make real cool curtains - and the poster has yellow in it so I could keep that colour too which I really like. Rosie was into airplanes so I was thinking a flight jacket style couch with brown leather and sheep skin area rugs. Anyone have a old wooden airplan propellor - I would mount that up in the front at the base of the bulkhead. Deck the bathroom out like a cockpit. Get some really cool graphics for the windows that allow you to see out but you could not see in. It would look like a continuation of the aluminum or a fusulage sp??? Then of course get some vinyl graphics of Rosie - with our Motto You Can Tow It - or I'm towin it! on the back.

Just a few ideas I'm tossing in my head - but I have nightmares looking at the before pics right now

Hey Max - you have a great idea - why don't we take our evening Rally to the chat room - not Tuesday nights but another time??? Bet a lot would pop in to say hello and grab a quick drink and a boo at the fire.....

You know why you are cold - cause you don't have any of Carol's Airstream Jammies...

Skip the shandy and go for the Hot Toddy - Rum, Honey, Lemon, hot tea of your pleasure and a dash of brown sugar. Drink as hot and as fast as you can stand it and burry yourself in the covers - phew you will be hotter than a tattor or a woman going through MP.

Sharon you will have to be our mixologist! I have never had a toddy nor that shandy. I think I would like a toddy to warm me tonight.

What I like is either a cold Frappicino or a hot International Mocha coffee with Baileys, and a dollop of whip cream, of course Hackendaze or is it Ben and Jerry's pint of Baileys ice cream hand mixed with Baileys to thick milk shake consistency with grated chocolate over the whipped cream is also good. Beginning to see a recurring theme here. CHOCOLATE... YUM!

Georgia are you warming up now? My jamies were left in the AS. DOH!

I love the theme and your thought to decorating your new Airstream Sharon!

Maybe tomorrow we will have more stories to listen to. This must be pre rally, can't wait until the others start getting here too.

In my younger days I played on a team called the Shooters.

I used to be the host of the February Shooters party - gets kind blue in the winter and everyone needs a pick me up. miss those parties - we all went our separate ways - I am sure some are still playing "Ringette".

During those parties we used to come up with the wildest shooters you could ever imagine. But the funny thing is I can not remember a single one of the drinks

Thanks Carol - it was the Rosie in us all that inspired me. I was just so worried when I had sold the MoonBeam that I would not have a cute factor to travel with.

Any ideas where I could get some distressed brown cow leather for the Gouchos???

Sure is nice by the fire eating all your Chocolate!

This is haily's look when she has something in her mouth that she should not

If we were at a real rally and I was there she would be too and she would have something she should not in her mouth or would have helped herself to one of your drinks.....

I had to laugh, Sharon. When it's the Silver Sisters Rally, it's Georgia who's here at the campfire, not Max. And by the way, I DO have AS jammies, flamingos and all--and they're my first layer, under all the rest! I think it would be fun to have a Chat Rally. All we need to do is pick a night and a time, and gather round. We won't be able to keep up as the ideas fly ~G

I am sorry I like the name Max too - and Max was the lady friend who helped us get MoonBeam and I chatted with her for quite some time.....Just too many names, up too late and drink too much

Okay we will name a night tomorrow I've no got my flanels on and off to the warm bed....

Stirring up the fire, coffee and croissants here...

Haily is so adorable... I've got some chocolate hazelnut spread (nutella) and some nice jam for the croissants....where did we put that Baileys?


I just love hearing all the stories, can't wait to meet everyone in person. I love the Rosie decorating scheme!! Georgia, so glad you came to the rally!

great rally!

Hi everyone,

Wow I just discovered this thread this morning and have enjoyed reading all the posts. What a fantastic idea!

Have not done any Airstreaming yet. We are just getting ready to buy our first TT as my Hubby prepares to retire this spring. The whole TT idea was something my husband of 32 years sprung on me a couple of years ago, and I have to admit I was really apprehensive about it at first. But we found the Airstream forum and have been mostly lurking and reading for some time now. As the time to purchase our new Airstream is now very near I am getting more and more excited.

Just a little back ground - my husband and I met at the Michigan Audubon Nature Center where we both worked. We married fairly late in life, I was 29 and my husband was 34. He had lived part time in a small travel trailer in the Uinta Mountains in Utah while working on his Master Thesis. Now he wants to return to the mountains with his hunting dog and is willing (nay eager) to take me along to experience dry camping in glorious soundings. I think he would be happy in a tent but he wants me to come with him and his thoughtful way of keeping me happy is to buy an Airstream for me to sleep in and have a bathroom. There is my share of mushiness.

All you silver and gray gals ( I have to confess to being gray) peak my interest and give me courage to become independent with the TT. If I can get it away from my husband for even a weekend. A good idea anyway should something happen to make it necessary while on a trip.

I have been drinking hot cocoa with marshmallows around this roaring fire, we sure need it here in the thumb of Michigan. Hmm the Baileys in a milk shake sure sounds inviting in spite of the cold temps - later though - it is only lunch time now.

Hi Nancy did Steph and I meet you at the Metro Detroit forums rally? Those were your great baked goodies? Well bring some over to our virtual gathering. I think Steph's croissants are about gone with that great spread and jam she brought us. So glad you are joining us here. Another Michigan sister. Funny on my trip South someone mentioned how when someone from Michigan is asked where they live they invariably show you their hand and point to their location. Well at least I do, I know that, don't know why...guess because we can.

AWWWW stretch yawn rubbing eyes - it is 12:13 and it is time for pancakes with bailys on them instead of syrup

WELCOME uluewne

It is really exciting isn't it with the notion of acquireing your first Airstream -almost as good a eating a whole box of chocolates to yourself

I am looking out the window right now to a lovely snow squal and the temps are down in the negs AGAIN - I have let my fire go out in the house so it is a good thing we still have one going on here..

Okay so we know we can eat chocolate, and we can all drink all sorts of things - including the good drinks that don't include that magical vixen. We know we all own an airstream, love them or dreaming of getting one - sooooo lets pop into our skills - what can we offer the group once we get to the physical rally - from hobbies to picking up a hammer, music, or crafts, sports or meditation - what makes us all tick???

No don't you push me to the front I am not going first......

I can touch my tongue to my nose. Well actually I am fibbing. I just wanted to be first.

I have no mechanical skills so i am in awe of our handywomen and wanting to get a bit more proficient on routine skills applicable for the Airstream and watch these renovation projects much more carefully now.

I do like hand crafts, crochet, cross stitch and quilting and I love photography, hiking and traveling.

Maybe Sharon and Annie will share some boating knowlege and quite a few like Jamie expressed a desire for fly fishing.

I am going to learn so much and be so inspired by you gals.

We have artisits too right? Jamie with nature prints, Nancy in Texas, is it sculpture or rugs, our Airstream jewelry making sister from California, sorry I forgot the name this morning.Steph teaches and has many creative project ideas. Need more caffine, where's the pot?

I'll bring my travel journal--nothing special, except to me. I love the idea of keeping record of where we go, do, eat, see, mess up, what kids, new hubbies, grandkids are along, whatever. I began mine about '86 when we first headed Up North and began our Minnesota camping. I'm not a fanatic about it: some years, the trip is never finished. But, it's a trip itself to curl up on a snowy winter day by the fire, or campfire, and read back through the years. Sometimes I sketch, but I'll need LOTS of Merlot to show that! Maybe some of you journal too--if so, bring yours along and put mine to shame! Okay, who's next?

Okay, I'll go again. Flyfishing! I'm certainly not good, but I've caught wild trout in Montana and Idaho and our "tame" ones here in Missouri, so I can bring my gear and we can try some hands on. Maybe I'll get a video on flyfishing from Bass Pro to bring along too that will give us some tips. Come on, I'll bet some of you are good enough to be the flyfishing gurus we need. ~G

I don't mind going second - I can bend over and touch my toes - on a good day but I would make sure you are standing up wind.....

I too love photography and dreaming of my perfect camera one day. Just using a low end digital for the past 4 years - my SLR Nikon FE2 is now considered an antique - It was my 21'st birthday present. Wow that is a coons age ago.

I love to be out doors - gardening although I have not a clue what plant is what I love perennials and watching a garden evolve from an idea into an orchestra of colour, smells and sounds with all the insects and birds they attract.

I love vintage! period - I wish I was a teenager growing up in the 60's but was just too young to appreciate it.

My life was spent in the arena in the winter and on the ball field in the summer and at the piano for the rest of the time. although I can play pretty good - it is all by ear and only for my own listening pleasure - sorry I am not hauling my digital piano out to rallies.

I like to try new things - like guitar - stink at it and did not get passed lesson 4 but bought the guitar on e-bay!!!....like violin which I could be good at but can not afford the lessons or the instrument and it drives the dogs nuts...been the snowmobile route and just hated it - too noisy and stinky - anyone need a full outfit - have two that we wore twice!!! brand new stuff sitting in our basement. At least we sold the sled 2-up 600 GT Skidoo - nice sled they called them the 100 mile an hour couch!

I love to buy other peoples junk to fix up and make our own treasured possessions, from trunks to dressers, to old luggage carts, wood stoves, garden tractors - you name it - oh yes as you can see Airstream Trailers too.

This was my first Tractor - I even jumped into the engine and got it all cleaned up and running - a 1969 MTD specially made for Simpson Sears. The research on the make and serial numbers was almost as fun as Airstreams. And there is a huge following with these babies too - rallies shows you name it I could not believe it - I just wanted a nice tractor to pull my little hog bucket around in the garden. (a before and after shot) Still have her but the engine has had it worked it too hard. And she has some battle wounds from bashing around the yard for 6 years. Just got another newer one last summer - which is scheduled for a face lift as well this spring.

Lastly I LOVE ANIMALS always had dogs - they are my children we never had! I have fish and even bring my pond fish in during the winter. I am about to get a singing canary too....

To sum me up I am a Jill of all trades master of none! - I would simply be bored to death if I had to do the same thing day in and day out....

I love to joke around and be the class clown - I can be serious too and have a huge shoulder to lean on or cry on - but don't ever cross my path on false pretenses.

G I love journals - but I never stick to them - always start but then get bogged down - it would be great to see your journal.

Forgot as Carol mentioned - I am an Aquarius so of course I love water. Hence the big shoulders - I was a competitive swimmer in my younger days, then into life guarding and teaching. (tee hee when I had the body for a bikinni ) Now I frighten myself in a bathing suit like the one my Mom used to wear - with the fortified booby cups YIKES.

Peter and I have been pleasure boaters for years and still have our cuddy for weekend cruises.

Love the canoeing and Kayaking too but just kill for a nice long peddle in the paddle boat with the dogs along for the ride.

Hi Carol,

Yes that was us with the Banana bread at the Detroit rally.

Seems a lot of us like to garden and play with cameras. I would like to journal and plan to try to keep one once we have the TT- hmm maybe I should be starting one now about the process of becoming Airstream owners. However my past efforts at recording visitors to the bird feeders and the progress of the seasons seems to usually bog down - er well just get forgotten.

I guess "nature study" would be my main offering since my original profession was Interpretive Naturalist at an Audubon Nature Center. Still love to just see what is happening in the natural world around me and often carry field guides and binoculars as well as the small digital camera when I go for walks.

About a year and a half ago I went back to my childhood passion of horseback riding. My trainer succeeded in getting the horse and me over a jump TOGETHER, a couple of weeks ago. What a thrill to go back to what I was enjoying as a teen and find I can still ride and get better too in my ummm 6th decade.

I expect I will be learning lots from my new experiences, in new places and with new people that the Airstream will make possible.
