There are pictures of a rally at Casini Ranch at: http://www.airstream.net/rallies/03-.../scrapbook.htm at least I think that's Casini Ranch.

As I mentioned, we probably won't have a trailer yet, but if nothing brutally important is happening that weekend, we'll be there, with pictures of ours...!

Yeah, that's Casini Ranch. Very nice campground. Very nice rally. Don't they have fun at those VAC rallies? They know how to do it. This year's is in Napa, I think. Already filled up, as I remember. Would love to visit during their "open house."

One pic I didn't like was the one of the GG Bridge Sunday afternoon traffic. I have been stuck in it many times and it is real bad. I would definitely come home via Richmond/San Rafael Bridge.

Anyway, Casini is definitely doable.

Yeah that's an all too familiar and very depressing, put your head back against the headrest and say "uuuuuooooh nooooo", sight.

I am going to the Silver Trailer Social in Calistoga this Saturday with my husband, just to look. We're just going for the day to ogle, look at interior layouts, and show pictures of ours, which we have yet to tow home. If you decide to show up for the day, let me know we can meet up and say hi.

Wow- is it happening on Saturday? Time just FLIES! Don't know if I'll make it. Long drive (3 plus hours) and I got NO chores done last weekend.

But I would love to see those beautiful restored units and talk with the owners during the open house. If you go, take some pics as we would all like to see them.

Big Dee,
Another place that I remember hearing about is Snug Harbor in the Delta near Rio Vista. I would think that that would be a central location for both the Bay Area and the Valley residents. The weather in the Delta in the fall should be nice. I would think the wind would have died down by then, and there is nothing more relaxing than being near the water.
The web address is www.snugharbor.net .
I know that the VAC has had a rally there before. Maybe a VAC member could chime in and say what they thought about the location.
It doesn't matter where it will be, I will be there if at all possible.
I would love to go to the Silver Trailer Social to look and talk but I have to work on saturdays and that is when the open house is. I could go on sunday but I don't think that would be the right thing to do.

Hey thanks Mark for the find. I am always scowling the net for these places and still not find them. All waterfront sites- wow! I will bookmark that page- great pics. I really want to camp here. I wonder when I can fit them all in.

But as the rally goes, it looks a little small?

Big Dee,
I thought it was small also, but when I looked it up on the VAC rally pages they said they had 56 trailers there. There must be more room there than it seems. I thought I would put it out there for consideration. The web address for the rally info from 02 is http://airstream.net/rallies/02-Delta/index.html

Cool WBCCI going to Snug Harbor in June?

I believe the "Santa Clara Unit" of WBCCI is already headed to Snug Harbor in Sacto Delta weekend of June 12-13? I'm a member, but a bad one (poor attendance..), and haven't actually attended an "Official Rally" yet, as we're still puttering on trailer getting interior redone and adding anti-sway etc etc... May be ready by then for check-out trip, as we're off to Canada and Oshkosh in mid-July, and need a real test before commencing 3 week trip... I'll try to confirm their dates, though "Forum" outing sounds as much fun as official WBCCI event, perhaps funner... If I recal, Snug Harbor real hard to get to from the south, (Bay Area) requiring long detour or iffy ferry ride to get across river..

Cassini Ranch/Russian River is favorite of Vintage Airstreamers for a reason, and as long as it's not flood season, it's a great location..

>> And Thanks Ingrid for license plate checking... THose are expensive, but that might be worth it...

I'll vote for Laguna Seca. Anywhere south of the bay, and I'm in. One loooong trip a year will do for me, and this year, it's Colorado Springs.

Glad to see a Santa Clara Unit member on here as I wondering if there were any on the Forum. My trusty Blue Beret says Santa Clara Unit is having a rally June 3-5 at Duck Island RV Park, Isleton CA. Did they change to Snug Harbor? Glad to know about iffy ferry trip!

Forum Rally is for Fall sometime before the Region 12 Rally in Los Banos on Oct. 18-24. This rules out Casa de Fruita as the Ren Faire runs through Oct 24. It would be way to crowded and close to Los Banos rally.

I will investigate reservation policies at Casini, Laguna Seca and Big Sur and will keep you posted.

Unhappy

I also see that the Monterey Bay unit is having a rally at Laguna Seca THIS weekend! Anybody going?

I can't but maybe I can escape to visit the rally and check Laguna Seca out on Saturday. (I need an extra day)

When is the Napa one taking place? I live very close to Cassini ranch, which was the spot last year, but I couldn't make it. Napa is about an hour away, but a fun trip. Is there a local club of Airstreamers that I don't know about in Sonoma county?
