Now that we are safely home I decided to take a quick look at my recent posts. When viewing these posts of the past week I realize half of what I wrote didn't even show up. Guess that's what I get for trying to blog from my iPhone in 23* weather. We had cable TV but no wifi or internet service. Nothing like fat frozen monkey fingers. Anyway I will do a short recap:
Tim and I were at an Airstream gathering called the Can Opener. The Can Opener is all organized virally on the internet through the Air Forums web site. We decided it would be a good way to start off the new year. Approximately 29 trailers arrived to this gathering being held at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach in north Florida. A good number of people canceled but the diehards made a go of it.
There were a few rumored competitions. Like the Polar Bear Swim that a few guys were talking of wearing their fancy Speedos. And a Naked Trek through the campground at midnight. Either way neither Tim or I placed in any of the events. But kudos go out to the AirheadsRus for bringing the Mud Slides to the Trailer Park Lounge.
There were pot luck dinners and breakfasts and an afternoon of Bloody Mary's. The open house of Airstream trailers was an event not to be missed either. One day we were lead by The Bohemian on a 5 mile hike to the beach and to a few of the rare fresh water dune lakes. Joining us were the Bandits who enjoyed the great photo opportunities as well. On the last night we went into Destin for a few pints of home brewed stout at the local Irish pub and were joined by AirheadsRus. This was followed by a great dinner at Dewey Destins with four other couples - Sky, Ike T, HowieE and of course AirheadsRus.
And again stay tuned I will update the traveling marquee soon. Please stay warm and safe and as always forget the box . . . just think outside.
