 Hot...Hot... Dutch Oven Cooking Class.
 The finished Ovens!!!!
Here is the 2012 Class of Dutch Oven Cooking!!!!(I am on the left)

    Wednesday, May 30th, We have a Dutch Oven Cooking Class.  Our teacher was Matt Hackney, and he did a great job instructing us on how to cook with a Dutch Oven. We all brought our own ovens to class with ingredients too. I brought Apple Filling with the cake mix. We fired up the charcoal and placed them under & over the oven & waited about an hour till done....Yum..Yum.. We all sampled each of the pots when done. So... Obie(thats me!) cooked for the first time in 44 years and did  not burn it!!Of course we had to sample all 12 ovens for afternoon dessert.  All the ovens were empty at the end of class...Yummy!!

 Here we are lined up for Alumapalooza at Jackson Center, Ohio
 The rain came before the gate opened at 9am so we waited till 11am to park. Because the fields were very wet!
This is where we spent the last 2 nights in Jackson center at a courtesy parking at a fellow Airstream  member. We has hookups and even a cook out on monday afternoon. There were 3 Airstreams here monday night, Great Fellowship and Fun!

   Sunday May 27, we left home at noon for Ohio to the place where Airstreams are made, Jackson Center,Oh.   We arrived at 10 pm (494 miles) at the plant, all spaces were taken so we headed out of town 2 miles to Courtesy parking of a fellow member. We hooked up to electric and hit the sack.
   Monday, May 28, we met with another Airstreamer here and had a get together in the kitchen of the home. We exchanged stories about airstreamin'. The other couple are running a 65 day Caravan to Alaska this summer! Please...Please can I come...No!! The caravan is full with standbys waiting for that call.  We then had a cookout but ate inside , it was 95* outside, the air conditioner was a welcome relief.
 We then went into the center for a chat session under the trees. many were there that I knew and we exchanged more stories. I don't think Airstreamers are ever BORED?
    Tuesday, May 29, we hookup before it rained,8am. We then went to the rally field at 8:30 am and waited in line till 11 am when we were allowed in the we were all parked quickly. Thanks to the Parking  Committee. Electric came next then the water, we are all set up by noon. About 75 arrived today 200 total are expected as it is Sold Out with the 200. We  mingled on the field with aistreamers till announcement/welcome time at 4pm. We all headed to the Big Tent to hear the plans for the week. We also started  the door prize giveaways. Nope ...none for the Obers.. maybe tomorrow?  Till then  ... God Bless.... AirstreamHobo and Mom
