Midwest Rally folks spotted in Colorado

Hey All
You know why I love our group because you meet the neatest people - and sometimes they pop up in other places. Jim and I are camped at Haviland Lake campground near Durango and I went riding in the campground trying to see other airstreamers and the first one I found I went to introduce myself and guess who it was? Don and Gerri McDowell. Don actually told me about this park at our last rally but I didn't expect to actually see them here - we've had a grand time socializing the past few days and hearing their great stories. Hope to see some more of you at rallys or on our travels!

Don and Gerri are two of my favorite people. Saw them last September at the Texas vintage rally. If you see them again, day that steve and amy said hello, and that we are miving to Springfield, Missouri next week. We hope to see Captain and Mrs. Donut at the next rally this fall.

So that's where they are! Out in Colorado again! They're among our favorites, too. I'll never forget when we first became Airstreamers and Don came over with his coffee and proceeded to check out our noisy hot water heater and tell Ray what to do about it. They're the best - and if you want to talk to about experienced Airstreamers - Don and Jerry would be the most experienced I know. Love them!
If you're still nearby, and see them again, tell them we said hi and we hope to see them again soon!
Hope you are having a great time on the road. Keep singing!! LOL

Yes, yes, let's go back to Branson with Steve hosting again! I love Acorn Acres. It's like home to us. We're going there sometime this summer anyway, I hope, but we'd be glad to go back in the fall. I like the way they let us take over the pavilion and I love their private bathrooms. Plus they let us have our campfire right in the middle of everything and do a good job of keeping us together. And sometimes, if we are lucky, Tommy and them play music!

We will be going out to see them at the CG they're hosting in August. Jim has talked to him a few times on the phone. We'll tell them you send hellos!
We sold our house, closing Aug 1, and will be traveling around for a while, maybe longer...putting everything in storage and just be gypsies for awhile! WooHoo, we can't wait! Colorado will be our first trip then on to Utah, Grand Canyon and then first of Oct we'll be at the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque and probably wont be back in time for Air Midwest but we'll see you all in the spring!

Hello all,

We are currently in St. Louis visiting family before we can close on our house in Ozark, MO next Friday. What I woukd like to.do is get people's opinions on a good weekend in late September to October that works well for them. We are waiting to see Amy's drill schedule before we can book it for sure. I may be on call that weekend, but I work in Branson so if I have to go in then I will.

Thanks for.the patience everyone!

Just FYI...The Grahams are in Branson staying at Cooper Creek Resort & RV, on Lake Taneycomo. They suggest it would be a great rally place. It has a large club room and is a beautiful site in the trees. I looked at their website and it looks like a place we will go next time there. They dont say anything about accommodating rallys, but surely they do if they have a club room. It might be a place to check out Steve, if you have not already decided on a place. Here is the website:
Branson Cabins,Bransons Resort Cabins,Campground, Trout Fishing, Lake Taneycomo in Branson, Mo Branson Rv Camping.

Sorry guys I could not find a club house that would house us it did have a game room with a small spot for 10 people. It has a outside pavilion but it would not hold the 50 plus that we have had at these rallies in the past. It is beautiful place but does not have the accommodations that we need.

Steve you are more than welcome to call them to make sure I didn't miss a building. The owner was so busy we never had a chance to talk after we got there.

Thanks folks. Several folks had mentioned returning to Acorn Acres as it can accommodate our group. I am waiting to see what Amy's drill weekend is for October. I would prefer to have it in the first two weeks of October, but I know Brad and Zell cannot make it the 2nd weekend. I am tempted to just make it the first weekend of the month and if Amy has drill then she can join us in the evening (her words...not mine). This would allow people to begin booking sites now. I may be on call that weekend, but I work in Branson and can make it to the hospital without any issues.

Hey guys,
We actually can't make the first two weekends in October - but we often don't make the fall rally so don't plan around us. However - if it was later in the month - the three weekends - including Halloween- we could do it. We will camp one of those weekends regardless - just prefer with you guys. If it turns out we can't then maybe some of you can meet us in say Land Between the Lakes for Halloween weekend.

L.

I am currently at Amy's reserve unit and have her schedule. Drill this October is the 18th and 19th (3rd weekend) so that is out. I want to avoid the last weekends in October after that due to weather and temperature. The first weekend is the best looking weekend unless people would want to do it the last weekend in September. What do pepple think of that? I need people to weigh in as I would like to call and schedule the event today.

Thanks!
