Talk of a Digital RV- Photography Rally

Looks like The Digital RV site (gadgetat/Rich Charpentier author/writer of The Digital RV) is asking for suggestions for a photography rally.

Suggested so far is Baniff. Go add your suggestions. I sure would like to see this kind of rally happen more often.

Banff sounds terrific. I wonder if a string of parks in the US might be added. Glacier National Park is, I believe, the nearest to Banff. Then there are the fabulous Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks. In between are some of the best flyfishing rivers in the world.

Wyoming, Montana, Alberta and throw in Idaho and that sounds like a wonderful 4 to 8 week circuit. How about it?

Did you put your feedback over there? I know Rich Luhr and Burt Gildart who was a ranger at Glacier for 12 seasons are considering it as well. But the time frame needs to be zeroed in.

My husband and I usually like to go in the fall when the crowds die down, but I think they are considering right after the International on the 4th of July. How does that work out with your schedule, sound good?

We also would love to see Yellowstone and Grand Tetons again. We have never been as West as Idaho yet. All that area is so gorgeous!

No I haven't posted the parks circuit idea elsewhere. It seems more reasonable to organize the ideas here in airstreamforums because that's where the most likely participants will see it.

So, why not start a new thread for say a loop tour including Banff, Glacier, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton. We haven't made plans for the summer yet, but it seems that from the third week of June thru early September, my wife and I are free as birds. Photo shoots with flyfishing enroute sounds terrific.

Great idea, Mike! As Big Dee has found, getting reservations for more than a few rigs is sometimes tough to do once the weather turns nice....especially during the summer months when the kids and their teachers are out of school. I would love to attend a combo flyfishing/photography forum get-together....I have always wanted to learn to flyfish....and, the photography happens no matter where I go.

I am wondering if maybe the way to do it is to just announce on the calendar where you plan to be and what you plan to do while there. Folks could chime in once they get their own reservations.

Right on!

Photography--Moab, Page, Bluff
Kayaking--Port Townsend WA, Bandon OR, name a place Northern CA

love the idea of a boondocking BLM area to congregate

Could we start a thread for each topic of interest and see if the interested parties can reach a consensus on two locations to start with?

Suggestions for other topics: outrageous gourment meals in the boondocks, best boondock wine cellar, hang gliders, real glider support teams (Tonopah NV in June, already), geological nuts would love the Potholes in WA, how about fossil hunters? And how about a maintenance rally in some really boring place (near a hardware source, of course) where all you'd wan to do is repair and polish.... hey, not really kidding here.

Hi Roger,
Great themes!
BLM boondocking has been some of my most memoriable A/S experiences.

Lets make it happen!

Michael
