Ohio Airstreamers - Informal forum for weekend camping
 
Hi all:

I figured it would be nice to have a dedicated forum for people to post where they are camping "this weekend" so that other local Airstreamers can join.

I'll start with mine.

We are planning on taking the AS to Mohican State Park in Loudonville, OH for the weekend of May 1-3. We're planning to check in Friday evening and checkout sometime Sunday morning. We've got a baby shower to go to on Sat. around lunchtime, but it's only up in Ashland, so no biggy. We don't have reservations yet...waiting to may sure it's not 40 and rain/snow all weekend, first :D. Would be great to see some other Ohio Airstreamers there.

Re: Ohio camping
 
Where will this thread reside? I will bookmark it and try and keep track of it.
Larry and I don't have any plans for that weekend yet. Let us know when the weather report is in. We have a new to us 1989 AS Excella 1000 29 footer to practice with when we get a chance. Think it is going to be lots of fun. We got to the Dogwood/Bluegrass Rally in KY and things went great!
Hope to see a bunch of Ohioans rallying soon!!
Lou and Larry

Any one else??
 
And any other folks that are interested. PA, MI, IN, KY, TN Anyone up for a campout?

I am hoping to keep the thread right here. Andrea and I contemplated what section of the forums to put it under and chose here. It seemed kinda obscure that the the Ohio camping duscussion was happening under a title that was started over a year ago that was specific to one event. So, hopefully now people will search for Ohio find this thread and soon all will have it on their subscribed list and will get a notification when somone posts where they are camping for the weekend and can join in if they want.

Andrea and I have had plans to camp a couple times recently and everything has fallen through at the last minute. So, the AS hasn't been used since your driveway, loudruff. We're going next weekend whether anyone else goes or not (weather permitting. It would be this weekend, but I've got a poker run on Sat. on the bike plus my own poker run to promote at a bike mtg. in Ashland on Sat. evening.

Glad to her you bought the Excella. You selling the Minuet, then? I know two AS's aren't going to fit in your barn. I saw your posts regarding the Bluegrass rally. We looked at going to that, but decided it was getting pretty big and was a bit too much perhaps for our first rally. We've made reservations for the Georgia Mtn. Fairground for the Springstream forum rally May 14-17. So, we'll be going to that.

I have also BOOKMARKED this page. Jason and Andrea I think its a great idea that we get the OHIO Streamers together here in the state. Although we would love too, we are not able to travel all over the country to rallies,so Airforums Rallys here in the state would be Great.
I will run that May Date passed the wife and see what happens.

dieterdog 04-23-2009 09:11 AM

Yay Lou,, please post pictures of the interior of your new Stream!!! Happy Trails,, donna

Sky 04-23-2009 05:40 PM

Can't do Mohican, but I bookmarked the thread, thanks :)

Lou and Larry
Happy for you and the AS. Full time bed I'm guessing? That will be so nice if it does. I wish we had one. You need to post pics.

bob otto 04-23-2009 06:15 PM

Lou
You and Larry will have to get walkie talkies to be able to talk to each other in there. All that extra space would be wonderful. That's a big AS.
Did you have to get a new tow vehicle? Where did you find it? What color interior? Is it all original or has it been redone in any way? Would've been cheaper to buy a new AC for the Minuet.:D Really happy for you.

Hey everyone,
Julie and I will keep watching this thread too. May first at mohican is out for us...anyone want to try Indian Lake for May 9, 10th? Larry, Lou, good meeting you in Ky. Hope to see you out and about this summer here in Ohio

Mikethefixit 04-23-2009 07:51 PM

Jason
I bounced that May 1st date off the wife and she said if we can get the trailer ready and its 80 degrees she might consider it.

Whats at Indian Lake?????

WineStream 04-23-2009 08:12 PM

May 9-10 at Indian Lake would be good, but with 1-2 at Mohican, May 10 being mother's day and plans to go to Springstream in GA May 14-17...9-10 would be a bit too much for us. Hope you can get some folks to join you, though.

Sorry, we are going to watch our daughter commence....Master's Degree... on Sat., May 9th....Yay!!! Ashland Univ. is too far from Indian Lake to do a split in the middle. We will catch up with you along the way on another weekend. Thanks for the invite.

We are having a good time with the new to us Excella 1000. Found it here in the Classifieds. All 29 feet are awesome! Larry says to tell you that while we don't need walkie talkies, the echo in there is awesome. No need for a new tow vehicle. The E350 did just fine. Larry is in love with the PO's Hensley hitch, so it looks like that will be on the shopping list. The inside is light and airy. Light earthtones, oak cabinetry, updated floor and counters and faucets. He did the kitchen backsplash in aluminum and it makes it look so much brighter.
Yep, would have been way cheaper to get the AC for the Minuet, but this is more fun!

Its a beautiful coach, I can vouch for that. :) Lou, did you get your rug re sized yet?

loudruff 04-23-2009 10:32 PM

carpet
 
Thanks, we think that it is a nice coach too.
Nope, I did not get to that carpet yet. The carpet piece has a nice border all the way around it which sets the theme and I am worrying that if the border has to go then it will spoil the look. So I have to get out there and measure and figure out if it is worth doing. It may be just wayyy too big. But playing with that kind of stuff is kinda' fun.
