Not to worry

Not to worry. The schedule has remained slightly fluid so that we can accomodate great opportunities or to simplify the meals. I believe we have had our last adjustment.

Stay flexible! It's gonna be fun.

We are so anxious to get on the road at the end of the week. We'll see you all on Friday.

Folks,

The Clark Art Institute is well worth the visit while you are up there. Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

I can't "do art" but I sure can appreciate it.

Eric

Hey Eric

Eric,

Hope you make it over. I have your trailer's older brother - a 74 trade wind 25'. This will be our first time using it ever as I bought it in October and have been working on it ever since. I figure even though we're rookies, the Airstream will know what to do...

Gonna be a fun weekend!

Jim & Marguerite

Jim & Marguerite,

I am not sure when happy hour is but we plan to come up Saturday in the late afternoon, probably between 5 & 6. It will be interesting to see your 74.

We just got new foam for the twin beds and Gabriele has fabric for new curtains. We hope to take a maiden voyage in the local area towards the end of June.

See you there.

Eric

You all hear about the storm??

I just checked the Greenfield MA website, which is pretty close to where we are going to be tomorrow, and they are in a state of emergency because of the storm.

Anyone heard anything about North Adams?

No, except for Airstream travel I'm pretty sure the world ends at the New Hampshire border. I'll move outside of my box now and check the local conditions in North Adams, MA.

See everyone tomorrow!

Hi Everyone,

Sure wish we could have made it to this one! We will be watching from afar. I just know you'll be having too much fun!

Fun, fun, fun! We are having an informal open house today so I should be shoveling out the interior of "The Tube" instead of surfing on Airforums. But I'll get to it.

Lots of folks have gone on a walking tour this morning of the town of North Adams and will then be heading to Mt. Greylock State Reservation. Yesterday a large group of us enjoyed Natural Bridge State Park and North Adam's famous 4 1/2 long railroad tunnel and museum. There is lots to see and do here, I'm glad the hosts selected this area.

Thanks everyone!

What a great weekend we had! It seemed like everyone was having as much fun as I was - thanks everyone for coming! The campground was really nice, wooded and rustic, quiet but in a great location. The Berkshires have so much to offer, it would take many weekends to explore the area. Thanks to my co-hosts Pam, Chuck, Mary and Jon and everyone who was there - I thought it was a terrific time.

Hahaha! Once I unpack my trailer I'll upload my evidence.

Oh, my adult beverage dispenser was a big hit during Sunday night's Happy Hour.

The WDCU and NEU put on a great rally. Thanks to everyone who put in so much work, you made it look easy (I know it's not). Great food, great place and great people!

Airstream INVASION

We would also like to thank Pam, Chuck, Mary and Jon and Deborah for all of their efforts to plan and host our stay in the Berkshires. It is a very interesting part of Western MA and the world!

Did anyone spot the inter-galactic Airstream at MoCA? Very funny write up on this I will include later.

We also met a long time Airstream owner that bought his 61' trailer over thirty years ago and after a few uses it somehow ended up next to the toolshed. (?) I did my best to tell him that with some MAJOR work it could be out and about again. I do not think I was able to impress upon him just how long and how much it would cost to bring this trailer back, but we will give him a time line and a few numbers on what to expect.
"By the barn" finds are always fun and frightening at the same time.

Thank you

Chuck and I had a terrific time as well. Thankfully, we were part of a very good hosting team with Mary, Jon and Deborah.

We loved the campground and it's unusual location. The area had tons to do and we didn't even make a dent in seeing it all. The members that came to the rally were the best! A fun group with lots of stories and laughs. The group was made up of NEU and WDCU members from Tennessee, Pennsylvania, New York, and all of New England. We had visitors from as far away as Wisconsin and very locally from North Adams.

We hope to see you all again soon. For us it is the "Crawfish Rally", then on to a new rally in Vermont, "Passport to Adventure". We'll miss the Washington DC Rally unfortunately.

Thank you.

Newest WDCU Member

To all who attended, but expecially our hosts - Pam, Chuck, Mary and Jon and Deborah ... THANK YOU!!

This was a weekend that paid back all the time and trouble we've put into restoring a 36 year old Airstream. A weekend that explains why we bought it in the first place.

Also thanks to Chuck & Tom for assistance in parking and Titu for the backing up 101 lesson (loved those sandle airstreams). Thanks for "adult beverage containers", chocolate strawberries, u-tube videos, open house, a great dane, velcro, walking tour, food, conversation, camp fires and a "dance band" at the pavilion... We will remember all of these and more for many years.

Hope to see you all again somewhere down the road.

The newest (at least for now) WDCU members,

Jim & Marguerite

Marguerite & Jim---Two clubs fighting over you!!!! NEU knows that we will see you alot in the upcoming years......I'm just sorry that I didn't get to see the inside of your trailer; hopefully at the next event.

What a fun time we had, and what a great campground!


My only regret is that I had no idea what "side walk cafe" meant. I figured it was the coffee, goodies and socializing, of which I partook (got to be a "Poohism"). I had no idea that we were going to do an "introduce yourself" thing afterwards. There were a few people who I never officially met!
