We're bringing our Compact Jr to site B-18

Hi Everybody,

It's been several years since we were last at the Lake Casitas rally, but we'll be there this year. For once the rally doesn't conflict with our travel schedule.

I look forward to seeing all the old friends and making new ones.

We're arriving Thursday afternoon and look forward to getting our trailer weighed again by Frederick. There have been lots of changes -- I beefed up the frame, added brakes (that's why the frame needed strengthening), new larger wheels and tires. So we don't have the lowest-weight Compact Jr any more, but I feel the increase in weight is worth it. Everything else I've tried to keep as light as possible.

While we were at Oh! Ridge CG in the June Lake area we were fortunate enough to meet and become friends with Kristen, George and Vivienne. They got to see my latest modification, which was the replacement of the pop-top skirt with lightweight removable windows. The current version is what I call a "full-scale mockup" (FSM) which is something solid enough to use, but not the final version. The FSM allows us to discover the unforeseen problems and make changes -- a process that continues until the result is good enough to make permanent. What you'll see is the FSM, I haven't built the final version yet.

It was George and Kristen that reminded us about the Lake Casitas rally, and here we are!

We will be in site B-18 on the Bass loop.

Drop by and say Hi!

Hi Dana
Glad you're joining us.
I have put your name on the list for Frederick so he too will know you want your trailer weighed. Please note on our itinerary, when you receive it, he asks all participants to be at his place at 9am Friday to go over some important things about the weighing.
Thanks and see you soon!
Paula

Hi Dana
I don't not print up itinerary's. You will receive the itinerary via your email and you'll print it up.
I was given your email and it keeps bouncing so this is why you haven't heard from me.
Please PM me and send me your email so I can get this info to you.
Thanks
Paula
