Shake Down

Sarah and I joined the Cape Cod Massachusetts unit of the WBCCI (Wally Byam Caravan Club International) and participated in their rally at Marlborough, CT this past weekend. We received a very warm welcome from Dan, Tom, Tye, Rich and Dot, Rich and Kathy, John and Rose, and Mary. It was everything we expected. These people are adventuresome and have a love of traveling.

We learned a lot from these experienced Airstream owners that will be of great value on our voyage to Alaska. The opportunity to talk to others who have made the journey before was invaluable.

While we believe our Mary Joan to be very beautiful, after touring some of our comrade's 'land yacht' we were reminded that there is always one that is a step above.

The weather cooperated despite the threat of rain. The rain began just as we were connecting the trailer to the truck. The rain became a deluge once we were on the highway. Visibility was very limited but the truck and trailer behaved well despite the flooded roadway.

With our shake down trip behind us, we are making preparations to begin our big Alaska adventure.

Stay tuned.
