Here are a few pictures from our Open House on Saturday afternoon. This time I snapped many interiors of trailers or cute signs. If you'd like to see the outside of some of the vintage trailers from our participants, check out my post from last year. We had quite of our friends return who've been with us for one or more rallies.
|This Argosy used to be Rick's but now belongs to Kaye & Jim.|
I love how Kaye has camouflaged the trailer's tongue.
|Kaye also turned the front couch/bed into a|
|Gotta love BJ's cow that kept with our rally's theme.|
|This sign for her trailer is from Current.|
The grand boys came up with these "Trailer Rules." Probably good for any age!
A few more trailers . . .
|This is George & JoEllen's Franklin. Notice the red & black chairs - just|
like ones we have - from Aldi's a couple seasons ago.
|Don brought his Shasta once again. . .|
|and his little friend as well. Sorry, Don, |
I can't remember your birdie's name!
|Rick loved Don & Linda's Award trailer. The air conditioning|
vents ran down the middle of the trailer. We won't see this
trailer next year because Don sold it shortly after the rally.
|I'm always amazed at how spacious Steve & Tammy's little|
Serro Scottie trailer is on the inside. What's nice about a Scottie
is that one can pull it inside a garage to store over the winter.
|Bob, the Burger, Norm & Julie's trailer, now has|
a diner theme.
|Kudos to Julia for her great vision for the trailer's interior.|
New this year . . .
|This was the first year for Chuck & Janet and their Airstream.|
|We like the interior - especially the aisle between the beds.|
We owe a debt of gratitude to Dave. He figured out that fuses were loose in Rick's Argosy and that's why some of the lights and the water pump wasn't working. In the future, we'll know what to check if we experience the same problem.
Speaking of Dave . . .
|The interior of Dave & Monica's Yellowstone features her handiwork.|
|Skeeter used PVC and pails for his device to|
hold everything one needs at the campsite.
And Joan showed off the "Bovine" theme.
I admire the creativity trailer folks display. Derek continues to customize a box trailer so his family is comfortable.
|This year he's installed more cabinets.|
|The local 4-H kids decorate cows. Neat use of the Star Wars|
theme for this one.
|Truer words were never "uddered" in cheesehead country,|
Hundreds of people are served during one of these breakfasts. It takes a village to scramble the eggs.
Apparently the cows like to have their backs scratched. This device is popular in the barn.
What would Breakfast on the Farm be without the obligatory vintage tractor exhibit?
The littlest camper (Rick's one-year-old grandson), paid homage to our theme with his soft "books."
|What better example of pink than a flamingo?|
|It's great to show the little ones a farm.|
|One more banner (from Lynn & Brian, new participants).|
If you want to join in the fun for next year, Birds & Bovines V will be June 8-11, 2017, again at Ledge Park. Get your reservations in soon.
