July Rally At Weed Heights

Thursday July 9 to Sunday July 12, 2015 The SNU rally will be at the full service RV Park in Weed Heights near Yerington. This is a nice place up on a hill with nice large trees to park under and great views of the valley. The turn off to Weed Heights and the RV Park off Hwy 95 is well marked. If you can’t make the whole rally, feel free to stop by for a visit.

Don Featherstone, R.I.P.

U.S. News reports that Don Featherstone, creator of pink plastic lawn flamingo, dies in Massachusetts at 79.

Featherstone, a trained sculptor with a classical art background, created the flamingo in 1957 for plastics company Union Products, modeling it after a bird he saw in National Geographic. Millions of the birds have been sold.

His legacy lives on at many Airstream gatherings. What is about the pink flamingo yard decoration and an RV rally is something to ponder – some other time, some other place.
