I think both close on Oct 15. I know the fall colors should be great for the one in VA. It is up in the mountains.

well ladies...

i'm happy to read plans are progressing.
i'm keeping my calendar open.

sure bob i'm very familiar with sisters oregon....
the edit feature wouldn't let me in to fix the typo...
so thanks for clarification...
i lived not far away years ago.

sisters is a much nicer town than brothers, which is close by.

i'm wearing shoes right now i purchased in sisters...and munchin' some local dried fruit...

btw the city park is really nice for camping there;
closer in than the koa and MUCH less money than the fancy sisters campground on the west end...

ok back to planning this rally!

carol...i've been to sister bay in door county but never to the twin sisters at mississippi pallisades...so either is great!

cheers
2air'

Lightbulb Doe Tow !!!!!

I've been reading this thread with great interest and would love to do a Doe Tow! However...... I've only pulled about 50 mi. on a 2 lane highway @ 55mph.w/ light traffic, knew exactly where I was going (my usual job is to read the map), Ike was with me (didn't scream like a school girl even once), tried backing a boat trailer a few times - umm, not good , I don't know much about the mechanical stuff (hitch, awning, elec. to gas, etc.). BUT..... I'm sure not afraid to give it a go AND COULD LEARN IF I HAD MORE TIME!! And if a D.T. were in the summer months, as a real plus, I believe I could bribe (or blackmail?!) one or both of my daughters to come along. That would be so cool! And I just had another stellar thought....here in MI there are loads of nifty places to go and not all that far away. Actual "in the field" practice !!

I also noticed there are 3 or 4 of us from MI posting in this thread. Hummm....

suz

p.s. 2air, In my case, "broad" must be preceeded by "baudy" on occasion. (pats to Max )

Hi All.

Wow, the brain isn't what it used to be. I flipped my calendar to September yesterday, and lo and behold, I've already got reservations AT Virginia Highland Haven Park for Sept 17 through 23.

My sister is having surgery (nothing radical) in October and wanted to have some time to play first. We're hoping to catch some apple festivals, etc. in that area. I'm going internet searching this afternoon. Anyone wanna join in? Mini-rally just to get our feet wet? Karen makes a mean cosmo... and I'll supply the ingredients. I'm not a great cook, but if you drink enough cosmo's first...

For those who don't have much free time, I've been assured that they almost never fill up, so we could make it a full weekend and start on the 15th or run through the 24th.

Paula Ford

Sue, I forgot (I think! Maybe I never realized) that you live in MI! You and Ike should come to the Metro Detroit rally! (We met at Mackinac, we were right next to you)

Looks like lots of interest out there! Are we missing anyone who thinks they might like to sign on? (If you'd rather indicate interest in private, just PM me and I'll keep a separate list. )

Anyone have any suggestions for a way to organize this? Don't want to put too much work on any one person, and don't want to leave anyone out.

Hey Paula that sounds fantastic! I'd be there for my cosmo but I will be away at Rocky Mountain National Park at a minimum from September 14th through the 17th http://www.nationalparkcampground.com/ And then we will probably extend or move on possibly to Utah or Montana depending upon the fires. Georgia are you and Max going to be in the area on your upcoming vacation? OK 2AIR this is your chance to make a date withTwin Sisiters.
Michelle and Donna I know I am getting near!

Jamie has a great regional break down of who we are thus far.

So who is going to Paula's to drink those cosmos?!!! Anyone dropping by to see Bradley, Baron Orie and me?

Carol, we've finally settled on Colorado-the Gunnison/Crested Butte area, maybe day/overnite tripping to Durango, Mesa Verde, if time allows. We were too concerned over the fire reports north of Yellowstone, near Big Timber (Michelle and Donna, how are you all with the fires?) and the same for Idaho/Stanley area. So far, we've not heard of fire problems in the Gunnison area. Wish we could meet up, but we're probably far apart-well, maybe not so far as the crow flies, but getting around those mountain peaks with a trailer is another story! Enjoy the Rockies and the fall color! I'm getting excited now ~G

Paula, Georgia, and Carol,
Have fun camping! Wish I could do either or both, Dave's off to CA those weeks for work so I'm a single parent (of 4 yr old) until October.
Jamie that was so nice of you to post the regions. Looks great so far.
We must have Cosmos at future rallies-they look so elegant, I never did try one but I've seen them on food network Can't wait to go to the first Airstream women's rally.
Paula best wishes to your sis for her surgery.
Carol, happy travels! Can't wait to see the photos!!
Georgia, did you see the photos of the Gunnison on the digitalrv blog? Rich Charpentier put up some great photos on his travel blog. You're in for a visual treat on the trip!

Smile Count me in with the California Contingient!

Hi ...I'm a 'Newbie' 2....! and ...I have a 19' Bambi as well !
This is really exciting, and you can count me in on the plans if it's before mid November. I'm an artist and hope to do some painting on any of my trips.
I have a little French Bulldog too but I could leave him home if there's no pets allowed. I have another artist friend who is familiar with pulling trailers who might join me on Airstream Adventures. I vote for 'SASSI' if you're still asking!
Debra

AYRSTRM2 Metro Rally

John,

Yes, I do remember you being there! It was a nice gathering. We may be interested in the Metro Rally but I'm not sure when it is. I found a couple of fall dates at that thread but don't know which one you're refering to. Please feel free to PM me with details.

suz
