It was like stepping back in time....
My only regret is that I did not go to the open houses or meet anyone. I wish I could say I took lots of pictures and really captured the feel of the rally, but my 'stress response' kicked in and I took shelter in the Pearls cabin and slept while most of the action was going on.
|First we had to check in with the Organizers. Their setup was amazing!|
|The Pearl looked so happy to be there!|
(do you see how close those fences are)
|Look another Oasis!!|
|and she's for sale!|
|Many towed their trailers there with their vintage cars|
|There were Airstreams as far as the eye could see...|
|Loved all the vintage trucks|
|the diner (didn't meet anyone actually so I don't know any names)|
|The Baas' Westerner next to a red Westerner. ( I already knew them from Prado).|
|Oh wait! I did talk to this lovely couple, but don't think I got their names...|
|this one behind the cute truck was the shiniest trailer ever|
|Loved these. They may have been the most aged. They were completely authentic |
inside very rustic. The trailer was from before the electricity days.
The crew taking a much needed break. I wish I had taken more pics. I didn't even get a pic of my friend Gretchen and her family, or their lovely trailer. And one day I shall have to show you Nigel. I really only took a few of The Pearl and her crew. I was slightly overwhelmed. Did I mention the Travel Channel was there filming a special on top of everything else?
Now that I know what to expect maybe next time I will be better prepared for all the action. Either that or I'll stick to mini rallys. :)
