We just got back from Malhuer NWR and stayed at both Steens Mtn. Resort and Page Springs BLM dry camp next door; beautiful area! Bear in mind the road to both sites from French Glen is not paved, so easy does it, prepare to get a little dusty. Our Verizon phones worked fine. The internet connection is dial-up, so be prepared for the wait. Be also prepared for a child's desk to sit at. Make sure you either bring a modem or have one built-in, as our MacBook does. I would check your site before pulling in; some are easy to get in and a bearcat to get out

Steens

I plan to be there (even though it will cause me to miss the beloved Beavers in a home game). Probably drive there on Thurs. and leave Sunday a.m. Really looking forward to seeing that part of Oregon. This is our first summer as Airstreamers after working on our Caravel for over a year, so we are looking forward to meeting some of you. Is there anything else I need to do to sign up?
Thanks
Mark Rauch (and Sharon)

Just bring your mandolin for some jamming! That'll make three of us!
(Mark and I play in a weekly "slow jam" together)
Should be fun!
Chris will let us know what the meal plan is as we get closer. Hope we can eat at the Diamond Hotel (family style) one night!

Thanks Chris for hosting this. We'll help out in any way we can.

It would be fun to see you guys again....and the latest addition to the family! I think it would be great if you could make it. BTW....I have a 22' Argosy for sale if you're thinking of getting back into AS's.

Looks promising to make one of these - finally. This working four days on and four days off makes it difficult to do things with friends/family. Just have to wait to have the vacation approved (should not be too huge an issue, I am the senior body, no one is on the schedule and I am maxed out on vacation time). And, I need to manufacture the time to get out in the shop and stuff the engine back into the Suburban.

So, I look forward to finally meeting you folks. Of course, being the recluse I have been you will probably want me to drag 'slimer' up to Fish Lake like I did in '04

Exclamation Update !

Hi all ! Here is the lowdown on the sites and reservation info.

I am doing the registration a bit different this time.

You will have to call the Steens Mountain RV park at 1 800 542 3765 and reserve your spot. Talk to Carol and identify yourself as being in the Airstream Rally. Make sure to give her the dates, the 16th to the 20th. She will group us all together. Carol works Monday, Thursday and Friday. It is best to talk to her. Tentatively we have sites 34 to 43. We are either going to be in a straight line or in a big square. This way you can reserve as many days as you want or as few. All the sites are pretty much the same. All pull through.

I can't afford to pay upfront for all the sites, plus it is a logistical night mare. Who is coming when and for how long etc.

If this works well, I may do all my rallies this way from now on.

I haven't planned any activities/dinners.

If anyone wants to plan something for the group feel free to do so.

Cheers, CJ

OK - I called and spoke with carol and reserved a spot - nice lady. We will be there on the 17th. I asked about cell service she says there are some new towers up and almost every cell provider has some kind of service there now. Looking forward to this.....

That is a nice park, overflow could go to Page Springs BLM dry camp next door. Click on this to see the best site in the park; top of the hill.

Hello everyone!

We will be arriving on the 17th and stay through the night of the 20th. Made our reservations with Carol. Thanks for the heads up Chris!

Really busy here, but very much looking forward to seeing everyone...

Cheers!

Schedule?

Just called to make our reservations today....arriving 17th and leaving 21st. The last time we were there was two years ago when the Idaho and Western Oregon units had a joint rally there. Unfortunately Cheryl got sick with pneumonia and we had to leave after the first day.
There is a lot to see in the area. After traveling that far, I want to maximize my visit to include some sight seeing trips, in addition to the campfire stories and visiting with ur forum friends. I know we've never had a schedule (other than meals) during our rallys, but I think we would all benefit from doing some of these activities while there.


Here's the list of thing I would like to do:
  • Drive the Steens Loop drive - takes about three hours roundtrip. Hopefully do this on a sunny day and start in the morning. I would like to carpool with another couple (can hold 5 in our truck easily).
  • Josh, the owner of the RV Park is a retired BLM employee and worked out of Burns with the Keiger Wild Horse herd. He is willing to give us a history of the herd and the area around the campfire one evening. He did this with the WBCCI rally group and was very interesting.
  • Group dinner at the Diamond Hotel one evening - requires reservations and we would want to schedule that before the rally starts and get a head count. They serve family style dinners and we can see what they are serving when we make the reservation. Again carpool to the Hotel.
  • Trip to Diamond Crater and Round Barn. Both in same area. Carpool again.
  • Drive through Malheur NWR, approximately 13 miles stopping to see various areas on the drive. Carpool
I did find out that there is a gas station in Frenchglen that will be open.

So we've been to the Steens area twice, once we got snowed out and the other we left early do to illness.......this time I finally want to see it!!

Let me know how you all feel about doing some of these side trips/events.

Jim

Yep!
Jim we're in.
Be there the 17th and we'll leave when we're damn good and ready.
This is the start of a 4 week vacation, sort of retirement on training wheels.

I would really like to attend our 1st Rally, and this sounds like it is the one. Not too big and a place we would like to see. If we reserve a spot and are unable to attend what happens? As newbie's what do we do- show up and then? Should we plan on bringing extra food - thinking from other posts - potluck?
