On the ranch. Tim and I have landed at the Sertoma Youth Ranch near Brooksville and Dade City FL. We are here hanging out with the Tin Can Tourists for their 92nd Winter Convention. There are about 58 trailers here on the ranch. Most are vintage with the exception of a few. Ehhhmm ...
I think the oldest rig here is a 1948 Spartan Bus.
Last night was pizza night followed by an interesting presentation on the GM Futureliners/Parade of Progress. We have a tour to take today and a Pot Luck Dinner to look forward to this evening.
SATURDAY -In a '66 Airstream.
A friend/TCT/Tattoo Artist/fellow vintage Airstream'r, camping here with us, inked me in her 1966 Airstream yesterday. Love it!!! Thank you my friend. I will forever be marked by you.
Yesterday was a gorgeous day. Tim went on a tour with our group to see some local guy's private collection of cars and collectables. I stayed behind on the ranch to take care of a few things at the Airstream, get some photography in and to get my ink done. The ranch and camping area was so quiet and peaceful while everyone was out on the tour. It was the perfect opportunity to get the photos done I needed.
The Pot Luck Dinner last night was crazy good. So much to choose from and eat. Once the sun set the weather chilled a bit and we relaxed while listening to the evenings musical entertainment. It was a great setting among all the vintage trailers ...
Saturday came and went so fast we barely had time to eat. The Open House was from 11a to 3p. Tim and I put our trailer on show with all the others and had a blast. We didn't realize that it had been advertised to the public. Also no one realized how many people would attend being this is the first time this event has been held here at the Sertoma Ranch. The guess on attendees was between 400 to 500 people.
Once the Open House wrapped up we enjoyed a fantastic catered dinner followed by the awards presentation. Then as night fell we had the pleasure of being entertained by the death defying ancient art act of sword swallowing and fire eating. Wow ... Now that's entertainment!!!
Once we get back home I'll have more pictures up on Flick'r of all the fun we had this weekend.
