Okay lets see - why are they pelicans - specifially Andy's only - a wind kicked up and them two "Pelicans" went hay wire - and I just know that Flamingos are much daintier birds but pelicans are just big clutzes - so that is why they became pelicans - I was missin someone and fornicating flamingos just did not have a nice ring to it but FP's did......

Hope I don't get any bad karma for this post just the facts of life girl....the Canadian Ice could have also had something to do with it

Hey girls, spreading my wings a bit and exploring other threads on Forums. I like this thread, its a great idea. I just asked my husband if the next time we take off with the Safari if I can tow it! With practice of course. But I watch/help him get hooked up when we take it places so I know how to do all that (I actually tell him what to do for he forgets go figure). My biggest challenge...Backing up!

Hey welcome Holy.....

You know it girl you can do what ever you put your mind to and don't let anyone tell you different.....

We all have the backing up phobia - but I know someone here that can help with that - Carol....

When in doubt - check it out by getting out....no one is counting except those who have nothing better to do with their time.... and if all else fails and you are just not happy or just can not get it they way you want it - pull out take a circle around the block and come back with a fresh outlook or from a different approach....

Heck I have a little single axle - and I have to take 100 times sometimes just to land a tire on the the blocks we have on the driveway...but you know what - I don't care about anyone else and what they think of how I park or trailer my baby....cause I CAN TOW IT!!! and so can you!!!

Thanks Sharon,

I know that there is a ton of support for each other! And if I could count on pull-in sites at every campground, no problem but thats not the case so I will have to practice backing up. It shouldn't be hard but I have never done it so practice makes perfect (or as close to perfect as I can do). Thanks! WE ROCK!

By the way when is the next rally?

Not sure yet....there are a lot of ideas been tossed around here and there but nothing firmed up as yet....

I was just thinking even a bit of a small Caravan would be cool too - to get as much towing experience in as a group as possible - what ever the group may be at that particular time.....

I think some here were thinking of trying to get another one in late September or October - just before the snow flys for many of us northerners....

Holly, love your avatar! You tow girl. Don't go by me for backing up, there are times I have gotten it lined up the first time and then there are times like the Louapalooza when I couldn't get it right no matter what. LOL!

A caravan would be cool. And maybe Lou and the girls will have the banners and flags ready too.

Thumbs up Wow look what I missed last night!

Hey sisters!!

Last night I was up on a ladder using a hot iron and a wet towel to steam and then pull the decals off the trailer (they were peeling off) so you know what the neighbors were saying about this "peculiar woman" as they powerwalked past I think a few got whiplash couldn't believe their eyes-- 'did I see what I thought I saw'

Well I have permission to share Jamie's fiber art with you so here goes, the first (my photos don't do either justice sorry) is the Airstream dishcloth and the second is the Darrel Waltrip dishcloth... Jamie thanks, you know I did tear up when I got them in the mail, you are so sweet to do this!!

If you were at the MD rally and toured our trailer you saw these on the table with a sign dishcloths by Jamie!! This girl can tow, knit, sew, spin her own yarn, write articles, draw, paint, arrange rocks...the list goes on and on!! I think my talent is to appreciate the talents of others!!!

Thanks I like my avatar too it was cool finding it althought I had to alter the saying...I will tow soon! Yeah well like you said when you where at Louapolooza you had nothing parallel to go by when backing up. I can understand that! Jason had trouble there too and we had Rhonda & Dave next to us to go by!

It will make me proud when I tow! I want everyone to look and say "take a look at that, the girl is towing the trailer!" YOU BET I AM!

We need special merit ribbons! Ours can be little girlie bows in pastels like Sharon's pretty Canadian money.

Anyone have one of those Lansing International memo holders? I would love to make something like that for our Airstream? Like I am gone so far to receive written communications, LOL! Well they are cool anyway. I think I had to put out a ziplock with a pencil on a string at Salem.

Yes, we are lucky here to have such diverse places to camp...
You've got wonderful places in the UK and Europe to camp too! A long time ago I camped near Ashburton at River Dart Country Park - Home course I had a tent then. Dartmoor was so beautiful.

Well thank you!

I know Ashburton! It was the last place we broke down in... we blocked a gas station forecourt off with a chevy, a globetrotter and a recovery vehicle that had a classic award piggy back and was towing a Safari... lol
sure is a pretty place tho.. and nice people too

I yearn to travel but can't at the minute tho I will at some point. I have 2 dogs, am single, no kids, have a small business buying and selling vintage American trailers and English classic caravans. We also rent them as statics so we do get to go to some unusual places! Apart from that there seems to no time for anything else... lol

The Silver Sisters welcome you! OMG! I just realized we've gone INTERNATIONAL!!! I believe the whole concept is a first - as far as Airstreams go - and our own Rivette, Carol, got the ball rolling. The best thing about Silver Sisters is you can drop by anytime, throw a log on the fire if it's chilly, share some wine, hot cocoa & s'mors. Things will pick up when winter/cold hits. Hope to "see" you often virtually and do think about a real time visit to our neck of the woods for a rally sometime. It could be a business trip for you

We Can Tow It,
sue

Thank you for the warm welcome. I do have heavy aluminitus... I find it gets itchy when the good weather comes!
