    For Boston area people -

    Rex Trailer, host of “Boomtown,” a Western-themed children’s TV show that beguiled generations of New England children, has died, according to an announcement posted on his website.

    “Rex Trailer left this earth peacefully last night surrounded in love and song by his family. Rex had been in Florida for the holidays when he became ill into the New Year. While everyone’s prayers and support have been of great comfort to Rex, he decided it was time to go home. Rex and family thank all of you and love you,” said the announcement, which was dated today.

    The site said a memorial service was being planned for the “near future” and the family requested privacy

    I knew you'd know him Andrea. A big part of my childhood. I use to love his show. I can still remember when my Aunt took us all to see him at some fair. I was in heaven. My boyfriend's mother went on quite of few of the trips he planned. I told him she's in heaven today so happy that Rex can now start planning trips for her again. So many people that I grew up with passing away - so sad....

    do you remember the rex trailer Crimson travel tours?
    well, crimson travel and rex would enlist a bunch of school teachers and youth workers and coaches to volunteer to chaperone for the school vacation trips where kids under a certain age could travel to california or disney world without parents. the chaperones each had a group of 6. OMG.

    well, in my exuberance of wanting to travel and to have fun, i was one of those chaperones. (1976 - 79)
    OMG, i always got the 11 - 12 yr old girls that were high maintenance, pre menstrual and MEAN. i remember my partner chaperone and i would hide in our hotel bathroom sucking vodka out of the bottle like it was vodka. the only way we could deal with those bratty kids was by being inebriated. ahh the good old days NOT.

    poor rex. i think rex was blotto too in dealing with all the kids! he had to be

    boom boom boomtown!

    Ha-ha! You are a better person that me. Going on field trips with my son's in grammar school was enough to do me in. I always got the crazy boys! Going out of state - no way!! Just looked at the video you posted. I was at one of those shows he did - loved it! I always wanted a horse just like Goldrush - never happened. Thanks for sharing!!
