Hi Max,
Yes we have "enjoyed" Ennis several times. We have spent at least a week at the Camper Corner Campground on the North edge of town 4 times now, with a month long stay in Sept, 2002. The campground is in at the top of the little rise at the end of town, and behind one of the best meat markets you will find anywhere. We take our bicycles and ride along the river, and over behind Ennis Lake where the Sand Hill Cranes always stop over on their way South each year in September.
If you go back, be sure and visit the old gold rush town of Virgina City, just over the hill from Ennis. Stay on that same road to the little town of Twin Bridges, and eat in the "Old Hotel". It is a restaurant run by a lady from Scotland. She is also the cook, and has a Sunday Brunch that is killer.
I go to Ennis because I love to fly fish, and as you mentioned there are all the rivers that join within 50 miles of Ennis to form the Mossouri River. Ennis is dubbed the "Meca" of fly fishing by most fly fishing magazines in the US.

Time to hit the road, with gas prices as high as they are, it hits back!!!

Shortly after may 1st, we set out to pagosa springs, colorado. For some reason I can't recall how many miles it is from atlanta, Ga. Hopefully since we are both retired we can take our time and stop at sites along the way on the lower western route. In this case it s both the journey and the destination.
We want to visit a friend in Aliceville, Alabama (anyone know of any campground around there?), go to the alamo, canyon of the eagles, big bend national park, Carlsbad Caverns, some petroglyph sites in southern new mexico and up to pagosa. It is all one trip but we are gonna take in a lot.
Pagosa is a great little town in the Southern San Juan Mountains. We stay at a RV park on the Rio Blanco River called the Last Resort. Anyone coming that way please stop and give us a visit. we'll be there most of the summer. We are the ones in the airstream

We will take 4 or 5 depending on our personal schedules. I hope to go to Quebec for the Region 1 rally and the homecoming this year.

Hi Theo,
Welcome to the group.
I think this thread has long sense died, but I thought it was one of the more interesting ones. It gave one a chance to have a small glance into the wonderful world of travel done by the Airstreamers of the world.
We are booked on two WBCCI Caravans this summer. The first is the South West Adventures, and the second is the South East Spectacular. We are also scheduled to hit the International in Springfield, MO, on our way back from the SW Adventure Caravan. We have about three weeks to kill between the end of the caravan in SW Utah and the International in Springfield, MO. We will make a circle around Utah, then spend a week in Cotter, AR, fly fishing on the White River there.

All depends if our wheels fall off due to the bearing issues.

Actually, it all really depends on fuel prices. Last year was a harsh reality, this year I'm hoping it will be more kind at the pump.

Our WBCCI unit - SC Coastal- rallies 10 times per year, plus our state rally. Then, there are always a few personal trips. Wish we could go more!

Hi Kathy,
We are in the Eastern North Carolina Unit, and have at least one joint rally with your Unit each year.

We make 1 decent sized trip each year (as much as 15,000 miles on the truck; somewhat less on the Airstream) and a couple smaller ones. This past summer we left home in PA in June and didn't return until early October, never making it beyond MT. This year I hope we get up to BC, Canada, if those MT trout don't interfere like they did last summer!

Joe, I've stayed at that campground in Ennis several times, tenting, but not for 6 or 8 years now. We used to pay $3 a night to pitch our tent right in the side yard on the grass under the shade trees - one the best sites and values anyone could wish for!

One of my favorite pools on the Madison is a couple miles upstream from there. Several years ago in mid- October I caught 2 monster browns in that pool within an hour of each other - probably the biggest brown trout I ever caught in the Madison River -- who's got time for all those restaurants and brunches when they're fish like that to be caught???

John

Joe, we are hopeing to have a joint rally with Eastern NC again this year. Last year in Hatteras it was kind of balmy but we had a great time anyway. Had to wait for the tide to go our on Sunday to get off the Island but that is part of the charm. I hope to see the folks here of the forum at Florida State and at International. You and Mary will love the Southwestern, we took it last year and had a good time. There are two couples from our unit taking it this year and I know you will enjoy your time with them and the others.
Rick

I've noticed in the last three weeks the prices are creeping up again. We jumped to the $1.87 range up about $.21. Now we are holding steady at $1.75. We were down to $1.58 at one point. (I remember it wasn't that long ago we considered that excessive).

I continue to be perplexed but it seems like QT controls the market in St. Louis. They do this big run up, then pull a penny or more off the price each day until we stabilize for about 4-5 days. It just seems like the run up goes higher each time and the stabilize point never gets down as low as before. I'm fearing we will hit the $2.00 mark this spring when the govt. mandated reformulated gas hits the storage tanks.

For some of you (depending upon your location) I'm sure $2.00 sounds good.

Jack
