Have you ever went on a camping trip and felt like you were having such fun that the time went by way too fast? That is how we felt this weekend. We had an absolute blast at the Northern Indiana vintage trailer rally. I must say that it’s one of my favorite rallies. The KOA is great and all the attendees are just wonderful. It was so nice to catch up with old friends and make new ones.
We arrived on Thursday (next year I’m going a day early) and got all set up. This was Jelly Bean’s first camping trip. Of course as usual I forgot something at home and in this case it was the power cord (OOPS!). I think last time I forgot awning poles LOL! Anyway, everyone was so helpful and loaned me a cord, adapter and even cut down a plug that goes into my trailer because the opening is so small. I was so appreciative!
I think I had the best sleep ever! The rear bed is so comfortable.
Saturday morning we had the picnic table sale. Those are always fun. People bring their wares to sell and set everything out on their table. My friend Alana (who I was sharing the site with) and I set up stuff on the table at the compound (aka, our campsite). I sold a number of things, which was great as that was a lot less I had to pack up to take home.
I had hired my son to watch over the picnic table sale so I could go check out what everyone else was selling. I come back and this is what I find. He was fired on the spot for sleeping on the job LOL!
Saturday afternoon was the open house where all the trailers were open for touring. Even the public came. It was great. I didn’t get quite as many pictures as I would of liked. It’s amazing how you get so caught up in the fun that you forget important things like taking photos for the blog (: But I did get a few of some of the trailers. This year the campground was packed and so there were so many to see.
My site buddy, Alana’s Shasta Airflyte. She has got the inside decorated so sweet! I just love it.
You might recognize this cutie below. This is the Shasta Compact we worked on and sold not too long ago. It was neat to spend time with Beth, the owner and see the trailer again. It’s just as cute as ever!
If you want to see a lot more photos, check out my friend Alana’s Flickr album here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alanawaters/sets/72157630811585156/with/7672533782/ She took some great photos.
Each year is themed and this year was Pirates and Wenches. So on Saturday night during the “Booty Bash” everyone dressed up in costume and danced our booties off. Prizes went to the best male and female adults and children. Here are a few of my favorite costumes.
This is my husband and daughter all ready to go shake some booty at the party.
This is me and my bud Joel.
We truly had a fabulous time. I’m already thinking about next year! If you get a chance you should come to this rally. It’s really a lot of fun and everyone is so nice and helpful.
