mr numeric,

just bring your DVD collection, and "burn" your "slides" onto a DVD so that we can do a slide show, but please, this is a family event, so, no CPA Funny Business. how are we gonna keep'em on the farm after they've seen Karl "Numeric" Hungus in action???

Thanks - Pat
mr pat,

you're not just another pretty face...

venture forth... this is not your first rodeo...

a '31 'dream stream works well anywhere...

or

unhitch and venture forth on day trips, whilst visiting cowboy bars, feed stores, gun shops... you know, the hot spots.

Well, pretty face or not, here I come. I'm still getting used to the greater length back of the rear axles - and in front of them, for that matter. Hate to drag my tail. But, I gotta say, I love the additional length inside the rig. That part's pretty ok.

We'll be on the road three weeks from today. Time to start revising the pack list and settle what can be settled, and accept with dignity what cannot. I value the folks I work for for their ability to forgive.

We'll be stopping at JC on the way out - does anyone need anything picked up? Besides new axles and big stuff like that?

Better go slow on the footing, not to mention the cross-footing.

I'll tell 'em that I'm on my way to a rally and ask if they don't have some free stuff.

Maybe they'll have a pic of a rig for my friend, 'bo.

It's been so quiet, I thought I should go looking for everyone...
So, first step was to wonder if the cost of gas was keeping everyone off the road and searching for subsistant existance. This led me to the first stop on my search, which had nary an Airstream...where has everyone gone...?

Food update

I did find a caterer who is willing to deliver - cost would be about $20 per person - what do you all think? We would all hot have to participate, but would need a good number of us to do it to make it work.

I know everyone has different ideas/needs when it comes to food and I know we kinda thought we would not do this, but I thought I would throw it out there again and see if anyone is interested.

Still need rig size/type and license number from most of you - think I have about 5-6 folks who have given me theirs.

Ken

Hmm...had to go out and look at the license plates...
OK:::::the MH license is 367 HOE(CO) and it is a 1989 345(34 1/2 ft)...it is(hopefully) closely followed by a 1995 GEO Tracker, license 655 NIX(CO), and it is about 15 ft from towbar to hitch platform. The [B]Screaming Eagle[B] will be moored offshore, and I don't have a legal license for it. The roof-mount 50 cal tow vehicle for the SS SE is self-exempting.

I have the huge 16 footer but need lots of room for lawn games and yard art.
(well and also so I don't run over anyone or their flamingoes while backing in)

My license plate says (surprise!) BamCamp.

Ms Bam(Camp),
Will you be setting up a nine or an eighteen hole golf course...? I will be providing a couple or so flamingoes for yard-type art, but will keep them safely corralled until you have tied up at your dock.

Mr Ken,
I, too, would like to know what type of cuisine you are proposing. When you say catered, does this mean soup-to-nuts(place settings/service/possibly seconds)?...or does this mean they will deliver the food(warm?) and split? At a rally a couple of years ago, the caterer delivered:
a.) The wrong menu
b.) A frozen entree
c.) Not enough portions for 'firsts'
d.) All of the above 1 hour late
It was a FUN rally, so a good sense of humor was present before and after, but even good caterers can drop the bowl, occasionally.

Page and I are in for whatever - we're in it for the full experience, not wanting to miss anything. So sign us up for the caterer.

And we're so glad we don't have to fit our tolietries into a single quart-sized plastic bag (clear).

But, gosh - we do our bbq differently here in the East.

Mr & Mrs Mc,
I didn't mean to imply that we weren't in it for the full experience...I just wanted to pass on a cautionary tale of previous experience. I do worry that not all could afford the catering experience, and I would hate for that to be a separation-type thing...I'd rather eat beans and hot dogs(actually I like beans and weinies) than exclude someone for financial reasons. Please accept my apologies if I was misunderstood.
