Our hostess, Kimberly Steiner, once again did an outstanding job of putting together a fun weekend. Progressive cocktail party, potluck dinner, jello contest, conversations around campfires, "show 'n' shine" open house - lots of great activities for the last weekend of this summer.
|Of course, Rick needed a different truck to pull the new trailer - an '89 Ford. It may be longer than the trailer!|
|We displayed Rick's vintage Scotch collection at our site.|
|"Ginger," new to this year's rally, belongs to Julia and Norm from DeKalb, IL.|
|A pair that is sure to turn heads as its owner drives the two down the road.|
|Shawn and Kelly from Cambridge offered popcorn and slushies to visitors during the weekend.|

|There seemed to be more "silver bullets" at this year's rally compared to last year.|
|An Airstream beauty.|
A new feature of the rally this year was a mailbox contest. Every morning Kimberly delivered trailer mail and we were encouraged to get creative. Here are the winners - first, second, and third place.
|Curt and Tina from Ladysmith, WI get honorable mention in my book for their mailbox rendition.|
|Gary and Mary from Ellsworth, WI and Mary's cousin, Christie, immerse themselves in the vintage weekend by dressing in 70s clothing the entire time.|
|Pink flamingos - of all sizes - abound at vintage trailer rallies.|
|Now here is something that's really vintage! About 200 Amish families live in the area. We visited a rug maker, bakery, and general store on Friday when we had some free time.|
|Two worlds meet at the general store.|
Someone who posts on a Facebook page that Rick follows commented that rallies and rally people are so much more fun than camping with the general public. I couldn't agree more.
