East Coast VAC rally

Well, this weekend we had a blast at the first ever East Coast VAC Rally held by Paul Waddell at the Staunton / Verona KOA. It was a blast. I commuted over there on Thursday and Friday, and then Zoe' and the boys showed up Friday night around 9 (she had to drive 438 miles after the boys got out of school). Friday night was a late night next door at Frank's place (nice name for a company Frank!) into the wee hours of the morning. Saturday was a great day of breakfast, then tubing, then the open house, happy hour and the duck race where I fell into the river, potluck was scrumptous, and then the Byamville photo. I, along with Dave Makel, gave the Fred Caldwell 1931-1957 Airstream's presentation as well. Stuart made me laugh into the night telling stories with our good Detroit friend Dave standing next to me as well! Nice to meet ya DragonWagon!!! Hope there will be more opportunities as well. Zoe' told me last night that this was the BEST RALLY she's ever been too!!! Steve - ya missed a good one!!! Zoe' and the boys departed around 10am, and they made it home around 6pm last night. I departed the rally zone around 1pm, taking I81 north for just a few miles, then over to 340 north and east on 33 to the top of the Skyline drive, taking that for about 40 miles or so on my way back to the Quantico area. I'm at the Prince William Park Travel Trailer Village now through the week. Enjoy the photos!

3rd Annual Pageant of Bands Rally

Well, two weeks ago, I hosted the third annual Pageant of Bands Rally. The SOTR was even in the parade being pulled by our 65 Wagoneer. Here are a few pictures - enjoy! We had a 58 Sovereign of the Road (ours), a 58 Globetrotter, a 63 Trade Wind, a 67 Globetrotter, a 68 Sovereign, a 71 Globetrotter, and a 75 Argosy 22'. We also had a 64 Trade Wind ( the one being raffled ) and a 51 Flying Cloud for people to look at.. that are under restoration or close to being restored. I want to do it big next year - it's the Parade's 60th Anniversay next year. Ya all know that even the CEO of Airstream marched three years in this Parade!!!

East Coast Vintage Rally Preps

Well, I'm back down here in Quantico with the SOTR. The 3rd Annual Pageant of Bands Rally that I hosted went great. I'll post some pictures once I get them sent to me... my camera is on the fritz..except for my cell phone camera. Last night I put on some of my vintage water decals. What do you think? I'm going home this weekend, and will be pulling over to the Staunton Rally on Thursday, commuting back over to Quantico on Friday and then will be at the rally site through Monday am for the GOOD times. I've locked on storage here at Quantico when I'm out of town ($40 a month with access 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. It's gonna work perfect for me. Parked next to the SOTR is this.. SWEET!
