Hi Mike and Rosemary,

I haven't seen the "affinity" rallies....will go check that out shortly!

Back in the late 1970's and early 1980's, I used to tent camp every spring at Anza-Borrego....I am trying to get back into that habit (but with the AS) now that my kids are both away at college, and last year was the first of many! My digital camera got LOTS of exercise last spring, between the herps and the flowers. I try to combine the trip with a visit with friends and relatives....by inviting them to make reservations and join us at the campground. So far, it is working out!

btw....I have also lived in West Marin....back in my park ranger days.

Have fun at Casini!

Dee

Uwe,

Casini Ranch is along the Russian River in the town of Duncans Mills. Just go north on Route 101 and turn west on River Road a.k.a. Route 116. The turnoff is north of Santa Rosa. Nice ride. It's beautiful along the river and coastline this time of year.

I'm coming!

Yikes, I haven't been paying attention to the forum and missed the beginning of this thread. Of course, I wouldn't miss this rally. I can hardly wait.

I may head over to Casini next weekend (we have a 4 day holiday for Presidents Day). Of course I need to check to make sure the river is under control... Airstream as boat... bad idea. Anybody want to rally earlier than April? Come on by.

On our maiden voyage the resemblance to a floating trip became all too real. I can attest that Airstreams do reasonably well in high water. See our photos at http://www.airforums.com/photo...00&userid=9539

Hey

[quote=uwe]Actually I know how long it takes to get to SF, so I would need a driving ( towing) time from SF to Casini Ranch quote]

Hour, hour and 1/2 from SF. Maybe slightly longer, towing. You'd be a great addition to the party and we could talk tanks. Come on Uwe!! Russian River is primo wine country. Korbel is right there!

Too bad! I am on call that weekend. We have not been to a rally yet and that would have been a good first rally for us. Maybe next year

Cam- So glad you can make it. I mean it just wouldn't be the same at Casini without you. Looking forward to another of your fancy happy hour drinks!

Dee and Paul- We will miss you again. I hope you guys can make Casini one of these times. You just have to stop making plans for April.

sofron52- Sorry it didnt work out. Hopefully you will be able to make the spring rally at Lake San Antonio in October. Keep a look out for the thread this summer.

uwe- i think its a little too far for a weekend for you. I mean you got caught in so much traffic last time and it was 5 hours closer. But if you can swing a day off or two, then come because Casini is really, really nice place. Redwoods, eagles, salmon, river, and wine. What could be nicer?

I'm headed from Alaska to California by April and would like to attend...but have NO idea where Casini Ranch is. Perhaps more specific location information would draw more travelers such as us. Thanks

Safari64- let me know if you want to be on the official list. If you are coming down hwy101 then its a perfect stop for you. Would love to hear some Alaska stories so I hope it works out and you can make the rally. Russian River region is one of my favorites in CA so come see it with friends. It's up there on my very favorite spots, along with Big Sur. Let me know if you want a rally site.

Dreamin'....

I hope that we're finished with our dinette installation by rally time! We got a wee bit ambitious last weekend and tore out the gaucho. I guess we were tired of cranking our necks sideways at breakfast with that ridiculous pull-out table. So now we have two camping chairs and a milk crate on which to dine. Lovely....

So what I'm trying to say is, that we would like to join you at the rally, pending the outcome of our remodel. Last year was great and hopefully we won't have too much rain. RAIN! I didn't really say that, did I?

Cheers!

Karin & Mark, I hope you can make the rally! We have the same thought about the front gaucho. If we don't up grade to larger trailer this year, my idea was very similar with a front dinette, with the street side bench extending to the refrigerator in our floor plan. Jeff

sans husband

Hi there,

My husband will be in Washington at his son's wedding on the weekend of the rally, but I'm coming, if only for the day. I might stay overnight in a nearby hotel or something. Definitely bringing cameras for bathroom pictures and layout and I'll have tank, water heater, furnace, battery placement questions. Mostly "can I look inside yours again?"

Who's coming geocaching with me?

Karin- Glad to hear you will be there. Just get to work on that remodel. Everyone will be curious to see what you have done. I've been impressed at what I've seen of rallier's remodels, especially Uwe's. Also looking forward to a DRY April and spectacular sunny days on the Russian River (fingers crossed)!
