Well Doug there was No sandbagging where we were but understand that wasn't the case at our old location so good thing we moved it to SON. At SON just a bunch of folks enjoying the swimming pool and a whole lot of other fun stuff.

The photos of people running around in shorts and other crazy garb can be found here
Thursday evening was warm and dry and Friday was also a fairly nice day. The rains didnt roll in until after 11pm on Friday and had stopped before the sun came up on Saturday. On Saturday morning and afternoon the weather was great. Yup we had a crazy flash thunder storm roll in with very high winds late Saturday afternoon which resulted in lots of flying awnings and trees blowing around for a scary half hour followed by heavy rains for a few hours.

The great thing about SON is they have a big club house so we moved our pot luck which was attended by over 90 people indoors & everyone was able to sit down for a fun Viking dinner by candle light. We had some amazing prize donations which added to the fun. The rains stopped while we were eating and we were able to carry the evenings planned outdoor fire musical without a problem. We discovered we have a lot of musical talent in the group.

I personally would like to thank everyone who stepped up to help out and make it a real great time regardless of what the weather forecasts were and what they actually brought us in the end. Especially those who ran around helping save each others awnings and easy up tents during the short lived but scary winds.

All in all by the comments left on our Facebook page today it appears everyone had a pretty good time. A memorable one for sure - no doubt more than a few campfire stores will be shared over the summer about it.

I personally need a few days off before I can come up with next years plan to top this years..... might not be possible.

Here are some more pictures of the Oxygen. They were taken two weeks ago at the Roslyn (WA) Vintage Trailer Rally.

The owners, Rod and Trudy, are friends of mine. I met them when I started hanging around with the Teardroppers of Oregon and Washington group about 5 years ago.

The last picture shows how they had been camping for the last 21 years. I'm not sure when Rod built that teardrop trailer but it was used for many years and has lots of miles on it. Now he is hard at work on the Oxygen which they bought in October of last year.

Rod reshaped fiberglass fenders that were made for a much larger diameter wheel and then attached them in the original wheel openings. The lower half of the body was painted at a shop owned by a friend he trades labor with. The art-deco bands, red light and reflector on the front are painted on with airbrushed highlights. They look 3D. A stainless steel trash can hides the propane tank on a cover that Rod made to hide the frame. He also added the two windows at the front. The wings on the fender skirts are stainless steel.

At the rear, a decorative metal piece for a Harly-Davidson gas tank houses the third brake light. He's working on ideas to replace the existing tail lights.

Rod really likes curved shapes and I don't think there is a straight line on this trailer. Wife Trudy likes M&M's so Rod had the painter put a blue M&M Happy Camper graphic near the door. It was a real surprise to Trudy when she first saw it.

The inside is still under construction with lots of overhead storage cabinets being added. I didn't take any pictures in there and I'm looking forward to seeing it when it is done. I'm sure it will be first-class like the rest of the work that has been done so far.
