Alumafandango 2013 – Airstreams in Oregon

Alumafandango 2013 - Oregon

Alumafandango 2013 – Oregon

The Alumafandango sponsored by George Sutton RV (where I bought my ‘home’ 362 days ago), is in Canyonville, Oregon at the Seven Feathers resort and casino. And it’s humid, but of course anywhere in August outside of my home state of Nevada seems humid. Well, not Arizona or Utah, but pretty much everywhere else.

If you have never visited this RV park, you’ve missed out. It’s luxurious, green, clean, and modern. It has a portico to park your rig in while checking in and a uniformed attendant guides you to your spot with a smile and tips on hooking up. Free Wi-Fi and cable, too. A shuttle bus is waiting to pick you up to take you to the casino and convention center – at your site – no wandering around waiting for a routed bus. Or having o take your own car. Excellent.

At 5:00PM, the Airstream outside temperature is 92 degrees, but that’s not going to deter a bunch of ‘streamers from having a great time. I met Steve from Iowa who’s my front door neighbor. He’s in a 19’ Sport. He had a tough time on his way here and jack-knifed the trailer. He admitted it was driver error. He’s also a Vietnam Veteran and a standup guy.

I think this one's from New Mexico

Scott and Stephanie pulled up on the other side and unloaded for their very first trip in their 27’ Safari. Their first Airstream anything was this event. A good way to start Airstreaminit.  I also met Neil from Washington. He’s been an Airstreamer for a long time and found great interest in my trunk. So have a lot of folks, but it’s not an authorized factory add-on, so they pretend not to look. Much.




The week ahead is fun-filled and I’ll report back, but now I’m headed to a market somewhere, maybe Roseburg.
