The Perfect WBCCI Rally
This rally idea crosses my mind every time I pass the drive in movie theater between Davenport, Iowa and Makqoetta, Iowa - - actually mid-way between Davenport, Iowa and Dubuque, Iowa. That idea is a weekend rally during the theater's pre-season or post-season dates - - trailers all parked on the perimeter half-wagon wheel style - - featuring old travel related movies at night such as Lucy and Desi Arnaz in the Long, Long, Trailer.
This is an idea that may not be possible much longer. One of my favorite drive in theaters between Marion, Illinois and Carterville, Illinois closed and will become part of a regional airport in the next few years.
It may be more Vintage oriented, but everyone seems to enjoy the old travel related movies. An the drive in movie theater could be quite a nostalgia trip for most Airstream owners as well.
Something that we did during our Wagon Wheels pre-rally in South Dakota was a home-made ice cream/fruit sorbet social one evening. Rounding up the old-fashioned hand-cranked ice cream makers may be the most difficult step, but I do think the participants enjoyed the activity - - and it was a new treat for the younger generation in attendance.
