We had so much fun!
Little rough on the trailer, but not bad. We have been cleaning, and getting her fixed up for the next trip. But we wouldn't have missed it for anything. What a great group, and a wonderful idea for a rally by Peter and Marie!

It was so much fun hanging out with everyone. Hoping to see you all soon. We do have several rallies coming up very soon. Casini, Marina Dunes (Monterey), the Vintage Trailer Academy (Albequerque), then there are our fall rallies at Jackson, and Rivernook.

Airstream rallies never disappoint, good people, good food, and great fun!

Google "rockhounding" and you will find like minded folks in your area who have clubs with the tools to cut, grind and polish your treasures to a sparkling shine. Back in the '80s I got involved with one of the local clubs here in the L.A. area and it was a lot of fun taking chunks of dull rocks and turning them into gems (literally).

See you at Casini....

What wonderful pics, Barbie. Thank you for sharing! I think I'm still covered with dust from their playtime!

Thanks Barbie, these are great shots of our dogs. We are still cleaning up all the dust the dogs stirred up. I think the dust is just a sampling of what you guys experience at Burning Man.

Wow, it is now just a week before we leave for Casini. The Mount Gay rum, tonic and limes are ready to load into the Airstream and we are ready to start happy hour as soon as we unhitch the trailer and before the stabilizers are deployed!

See you soon,

Hey!

Just back from 7 days in Yosemite, and had zero signal the whole time..which was great but that meant no forum access..
we have some pics of the geode trip and also some aerial videos that my friends took with his quad copter.
I'll get that going soon and post here!

Thanks to Peter and Marie for putting this together, and I hope to see all of you again soon! We had a blast and although we popped some rivets, lost the glass on the medicine cabinet (among other things) on that road, it was a great location. Of course parking under giant trees and cooler weather a few days later was a nice counterpoint..

Cheers,

Chris and merah!

At the end of the geodes rally, I promised another boondocking event, but this time with some water. I'm making good on my promise (albeit with very cold water). If you haven't already seen the thread, here's a link.

Hmm, another fantastic rally, methodically planned, and hosted by Peter?
Looks beautiful! We love the Shaver Lake area, haven't been that far back, but we are looking forward to it.
We're in!

What's a rally sticker?

geode rally schedule?

Is anyone planning another geode rally? I read about the one last year and it sounded awesome! I've been waiting for a post about one this year, but haven't seen anything.

worldinchaos, who initiated the rally last year, isn't on the forum every day. You could send him a private message (click on his name to the left of the first post and click on the "contact info" link in the line of links below his picture in his profile). Posting to his profile puts a publicly viewable message on his profile page, but those aren't linked to email notifications as often as private messages are.

If he's not interested in hosting or co-hosting another geode rally, you might consider hosting it yourself or ask around for someone with a bit of experience to do it with you. We're pretty booked and a bit far away (SF Bay Area) but I'll bet there are others from last year's trip who'd like to do it again.
