If you reserve a spot and are unable to attend, then whatever the park does about that is really the only thing you have to worry about, but that would be the same anywhere you planned to camp and couldn't make it. So be sure to ask their policy when you make reservations.

These rallys are usually pretty laid back but you can't hardly go wrong with bringing extra food!

Hope you make it, it sounds like a great place for a rally, and the usual NW rally folks showing up are a great bunch. We want to get there someday, but this is just not our year!

Rashton, I am sure you will be very welcome! This is a super casual rally, no specifics really planned many things wind up being spur of the moment. We very often jump into "hey, let's potluck" or whatever. Usually someone has a campfire and we all migrate there. Very laid back group. Usually great folks, great conversations, and of course, Airstreams!

RustyRivet and I plan on attending this Rally. It will be our first and would appreciate any tips that would help us fit in and learn from the seasoned airstreamers.

Hi sempi2,

Just make your reservations, and bring your rig! Extra food (for potential spur of the moment pot lucks) is always a great idea like Steph said. This is an easy going group who enjoy other Airstreamers! Bring a lawn chair or two and your favorite beverage ~ you will fit right in! Be sure and sign up on the rally page!

OK, we did it. Made the reservation from the 16th to20th, signed up on the rally page. Now just wait to load her up and head out. Looking forward to putting faces to the different Avatars.

Since no one has proposed a meal schedule for the rally yet, I thought I’d try to organize it and Cheryl and I would volunteer to supply the main course for one night. Hopefully this will help everyone in planning food to bring, since we’ll be a “fur piece” from any supermarkets.

Thursday, Sept 17th – everyone on their own.

Friday, Sept. 18th - Chili dinner – we’ll supply the chili (meat & meatless) and you supply the fixins.
Examples of fixins – onions, cheese, corn muffins & butter, salad, dessert, or anything else you think will go with chili!

Saturday, Sept. 19th - Dinner at the Diamond Hotel - see link to their sample menu http://www.central-oregon.com/hoteldiamond/rates.html. They only serve one combination dinner a night @ $19.00 per person. With our group (up to 21 people) if all decided to go, we could request a main course (ie beef, chicken, etc) We need to know for sure how many would be going by the 10th. Obviously we would carpool, since it’s about 20 miles to the Hotel. I checked with the owner, and he said his Hotel is full, and they would need to be able to serve the extra business, so we need a count of how many want to go.

Sunday, Sept 20th – Bring your own meat and side dish (salad, vegetable, casserole, bread, dessert). We will have a grill or two going.

All breakfasts are on your own.

Possible site-seeing events (group or on your own) require no reservations, but would be more fun as a group. We could discuss when we want to do these after arrival.
  • Drive the Steens scenic loop. Minimum of 3 hours, preferably starting in the morning. Requires a high clearance vehicle and carpooling is encouraged.
  • Drive to Diamond Crater and Peter French round barn http://www.roundbarn.net/roundbarn.html .
  • Drive through Malhuer NWR. 13 miles on gravel road through the middle of the refuge. Opportunity to see lots of migrating waterfowl and other birds.
  • Any other activity you think is worthy! I'm game!
What I need from the group is how many people want to eat at the Diamond Hotel on Saturday night by the 10th.

Also would be good to know who will bring what for dinner on Friday & Sunday and how many vegetarians we have in the group for the chili dinner prep.

That sounds like a great idea. We're in for dinner in town and the rest of it.

For the chili dinner - I can give baking some corn bread a whirl and will bring butter to go with.

We'll also bring a grill and one industrial sized pot and outdoor stove for additional cooking if needed.

Sounds like loads of fun. let me know if we can bring anything else

We've made our site reservations too - arriving the 17th and leaving the 20th.

We like the meal schedule and will attend the Sat. dinner - there are 2 of us. Friday I'll bring a dessert.

Jim & Cheryl,
Your plan sounds great! We are good to go! (Haven't asked Don yet, but I am sure I can "convince him". Thanks for doing this!

We will bring something to go with the chili... maybe a salad or some complementary veggies.
