Diamonds 'n Rivets - Get Blinged in Beautiful British Columbia!

Date: July 26 - 28, 2013
Place: Canyon Alpine RV Park, Boston Bar, B.C.

Driving Directions: Boston Bar is located along the historic Gold Rush trail. Driving time from Vancouver, B.C., or the Blaine/Peace Arch border from Washington State's I-5 highway is a leisurely 3 - 4 hours.

The drive features stunning Fraser Canyon vistas. You will also pass through the famous "Mouse Hole" tunnels.





Tentatative Schedule of Events:

Hell's Gate Airtram: "We had to travel where no human being should venture for surely we have encountered the gates of hell." Simon Fraser, 1808. Exchange mountain ranges aboard one of the only descending gondolas in North America. Below you, 800 million litres of water per minute thunder through the 33 metre wide passage appropriately named Hell's Gate. Hell's Gate also features many historical exhibits, an education display and film about the construction of the salmon-spawning chutes, a suspension bridge where you can view the river-rafting adventurists, a sweets shop and ice-cream parlour, and other themed gift shops.....



Lunch at Elvis Rocks the Canyon Cafe: Elvis, Airstreams trailers, and cheeseburgers. Three great American classics! And boy, are these burgers ever good! The cafe also features the best little Elvis museum west of Memphis.....




Hike to the Legendary Boston Bar Cross: The symbol of hospitality. A tradition brought from the Swiss Alps, the cross was a welcome beacon where weary Swiss hikers would find a cabin, warmth, and a guest book. The Boston Bar cross is visible from the Canyon Alpine RV Park and is illuminated at night. It's daytime vista offers a magnificent view of the canyon......



Diamonds 'n Rivets Potluck Ball: The Airstream Rally tradition - with a few sparkling surprises!

Technical Seminar: An Airstream maintenance specialist will tackle your most perplexing Airstream questions, followed-by a hands-on demonstration.

The Popular Airstream Open House.

S'moregasbord: We've upped this camping tradition!.....



Diamond in the Rough Treasure Hunt.....



Wrap-up Breakfast Before Taking the Long Way Home (or maybe your B.C. adventure is just beginning!)

The Canyon Alpine RV Resort:
We've chosen this site for our inaugural Diamonds 'n Rivets Rally because it is a real gem! Few RV parks offer the rustic splendor of a state of provincial site with the convenience of full-hook ups, complimentary showers, WiFi and Cable T.V. Looks like someone's watching Wheel of Fortune. Give me a "D" Pat, for Diamonds 'n......


The park's beautiful RV sites. I wish we had smell 'o rama so you could get a whiff of those fir and pine trees.....





There is even an off-leash park for your pet(s)......



And enough squirrels and chipmunks to drive a beagle crazy.....


Mark your calendar - and stay tuned for further details!

I will say "count me in" but that is tentative as next July is a long time away.

My heart was in the right place, but not the head.

As it turns out, this would not be the best year to host a rally.

So, despite those grand plans, Diamonds 'n Rivets will be cancelled until further notice.

Sorry for the disappointment or inconvenience.

BTW, if any of you are planning a trip to B.C., I would still recommend the Canyon Alpine Resort. I hope to revisit this year - may even see you there - but it will not be in the context of a rally. I don't know when I'll be able to get away exactly.
