Rallies

Our Awesome Group of Airstream Friends

I know, this has been all over facebook already, but I'm still going to post it here. John of The Democratic Travelers, took this fabulous group photo of us the night before we left Leigh & Brian's at Aluminogan. I love it.

Aluminogan

L to R: The Works (Josh, Jack, Jessa), The Watsons (Amanda and Tim), Mali Mish (Luca, Ava, Mila, Marlene, Dan), The Democratic Travelers (John and Laura), Weaselmouth (Tiffani and Deke), Aluminarium (Leigh and Brian), Riveted (us), Advodna (Dave and Ann -- Wynne was napping and they voted it was not worth waking her for this photo. Gotta trust the parents there.)

Yesterday we just got settled here at our new spot and explored the beach a little. We all made whatever for dinner and gathered at our long long picnic table for more fun conversation and food. After dinner was just chill. Some wine, some beer, and then the Works brought out this crazy bottle of "Iceland's signature distilled beverage" that they brought back from their trip to Iceland, called Brennevin.

Today is Brian's birthday and part of the group will go help him celebrate with some lunch and some wine tasting, and then I think tonight will be just a repeat of last night (perhaps without the Icelandic liquor) before we head to Glacier tomorrow.


Eight Airstreams: from Aluminogan to Kelowna

This morning everyone hitched up and was ready to head out by about 9:30 am. What pros!

Border crossing:

Almost everyone made it through super fast and easy, but two of our clan were "further inspected" and so we all waited on the other side for 'em. 

Almost there, with a gorgeous drive along Lake Okanogan:

We're in the Okanogan Wine Country, which we plan to take full advantage of tomorrow with a little wine tasting in Kelowna.

Here's our new spot at the West Bay Beach Resort:

And bonus: there's Wi-Fi!! (The woman who runs the place  at the front desk told us not to get on it today though...that we should go out and have fun! Bunch of bloggers, not gettin' on the internet. Imagine that!)
