Alumapalooza 2011 Final Day

What a full big day! With so many interesting opportunities to pursue today, I was torn between teaching our morning yoga class vs attending the SWAP Meet (think large flea market / garage sale, oriented towards RVers). slaDE was happy to lead the morning class through an hour of breathing and stretching. He even made the morning batch of smoothies, which was fabulously successful and tasty (see recipe below). I spent the day wandering around, photographing trailers both inside and out in conjunction with the trailer open house. I love this part of a rally. People letting me into their Airstream and in turn I come up with ideas and a new appreciation for people’s creative spark in enlivening their trailer.

The afternoon was such a blast! Airstream hosted a Rivet Master contest whereby teams would get a trial run at 3 practice rivets on an aluminum sheet with a multitude of lines to be riveted within a set time of 30 seconds. Which ever team riveted the cleanest and nicest looking rivets would win 2 chairs from Zip-Dee Awnings. Sweet! slaDE~ and I tried our best with 9 rivets and a 94% score, but Shinim and Al won hands down with 11 rivets and a perfect score. The teamwork aspect worked well for us anyway :).
