Here's a suggestion...

John (aka Mr. Poll) is going to be the Seasonal Camp Host at Heron Lake in Northern New Mexico . This location is centrally located for the NM, TX, AZ & CO folks who have shown interest in an informal get together. It's approximately:

90 miles NW of Taos, NM
125 miles SE of Durango, CO
170 miles SW of Walsenburg, CO

And those that are thinking of coming from more remote locations...sorry, if this isn't as convienient. Who knows...it may be on your way to ???

Anyway, there are several campgrounds at the lake there, Blanco Campground being the one with the most co-located, hook-up sites, that can be reserved ahead of time.

For "Things To Do" there's the "no wake" lake for sailing & fishing, hiking trails and the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad is nearby. And of course, the company of new found forum-friends!

Obviously it's still a bit too chilly there now, but it's not too early to start planning! I would think any time after mid-May would be a good time weather-wise, several have mentioned the need to coordinate with school schedules, maybe mid-June would be better.

Anyway, just wanted to start thinking about this again...it appears that reservations can be made starting in March. This is a State Park so the prices are reasonable, looks like about $20 per night. I'm sure John can help fill-in on some of the detail questions once he gets settled in.

Nothing is set in stone yet...just want to float the idea out there...any thoughts, ideas, suggestions???

Shari

No better time than now

S,

Thanks for the post. I was wondering if we still were going to pull a meet off. Location is awesome for me. I would most likely take some time off. (My boss hates it when I use my vacation time) Coming from Phoenix I would assume it would be a days drive one way pulling my bullet.

In May I have a commitment the weekend of May 17 and 18. So I would suggest setting a date in either month. It also gives my a target to shoot for in working on my silver sled.

BTW - It looks like last year, the train didn't start up until May 25th (Memorial Day Weekend), this year's info isn't posted yet but I would assume it would also be Memorial Day Weekend. So, if this of interest to anybody, we probably need to move into June. My guess is it would be too crowded ON Memorial Day Weekend...and the 6-8th of June we have a WBCCI Rally so would prefer the 19th-22nd for a long weekend...gotta work sometime!

Whatta ya think Action, John, anybody else????

Shari

Shari,

Springs breaks around the corner and people are going to start making their reservations for their summer vacations. So the sooner the members respond, the better your chances will be in reserving those dates.

The early bird catches the worm so to speak !!

I'm in!

S,

Any of those dates are OK with me. Memorial Day weekend is fine too. Gives me an extra day. However, I am open to June too. Actually the later the better, gives me more time to work on my trailer. However, no matter what the condition I will travel. Just may not look pretty. Oh, I am assuming there will be 110v. My propane is not working too good and that needs work too. If needed I'll add it to the to do list! ~~~~~~~lol~~~~~~~~

>>>>>>>>>>>>Action and the perpetual list

I've been watching this thread. Last week of May and first week of June are already spoken for. So is the 8th thru 11th of May. What time frame has the most likelihood of happening? Sure be nice to meet up with all of you!

Right now it's looking like the 19th-22nd of June will work for those who have responded.

I say we just go with it...hopefully others will join us as the time gets closer. I'll call next week and check into the reservation procedure and post my findings...

Sounds like the right place at the right time. Put us on the list if there is room for one more from Arizona!
