Would it be possible for Forum members attending the McKinney State Falls Vintage rally this year to get together during the rally or perhaps at least have a sign in sheet or other mechanim so that we can put down our forum user name and site number? This would allow us to track each other down for introductions.

Hurrah for the weather gods!

All of the cool temperatures and 20% rain probabilities are now gone from the weather forecast. This morning's forecast is now mostly sunny for all days of the rally with temperatures in the 70s and even possibly into the low 80s on at least one day.

February rallies are dice-rolls, but it looks like this one has come up a winner.

For all you snowbirds

I hooked up at 7am this morning in a short-sleeve chambray shirt. It has become foggy since I brought the trailer home.

The hostsa are going to the park today, but the rally really starts tomorrow. Latest forecast is some rain this afternoon, then great weather for the rally itself.

Over and done

We packed the state park with Airstreams ... over 50 of the 82 sites contained Airstreams by Saturday.

We had about 19 vintage trailers in the park at one time or another. Oldest Airstream was a 1950 in original, unrestored condition. Brought by the second owner and complete with all paperwork including the original invoice.

Great potluck on Friday and BBQ on Saturday. The only hitch was one anal park deputy who took offense on us parking on the roadside durring the vintage open house. Banjo music and hot dog lunch on Saturday drew a nice crowd.

We're gyrating on whether to do this again next year at a commercial park that is easily reached from Dallas, Houston, and Austin. A commercial park should relieve us of a lot of restrictions that the state park put on us and also allow us to not be quite so spread out. We did manage to fill one loop completely with vintage, but the later vintage arrivals were spread all over the park due to the fact that the state park does not allow us to reserve specific sites or blocks of sites.

Pahaska,
Sounds like everyone had a great time. Can't you reserve a group site at a state park for outings like this?

This park doesn't have a group site. We were able, however, to rent the dining hall for 3 days as a meeting place.

For next time, you might check out Potters Creek COE Campground on Canyon Lake, about 60 miles north of San Antonio. They have one area set aside for rallies where you could pack in about 25 trailers in close proximity, the remainder could be within sight. It is one of the nicest kept campgrounds in the state and there's plenty to do in the area. It is a great place, $20 camping, $10 with Golden Age, and worthy of consideration in the future.

I think that next year's site is probably chosen, but we're looking at Potters Creek for a unit rally and, if it appears to be suitable, we may choose it for a vintage rally the following year.

Five Motor Homes (one vintage)

Three 345's, one 280, and a DIESEL PUSHER - impressive.

Here are pics of 3 of the 5 MoHos there.

Great Rally and it was nice to see all the tame deer that were walking all around the park.

Friday morning we woke up to 5 deer walking across the road close to our site. The deer didn't seem to mind us at all even with our excited 2 year old screeming. Each day I think we saw deer up close at least 2 times.

We also found little paw prints inside our outside cooler with a pouch of fruit juice removed and opened on the ground. (Smart Critters)

The weather was perfect also, we actually used our catalytic heater for the first time with the chilly nights and day time conditions were mild enough that we had the windows open for a cool breeze.

Thanks to all for the efforts of putting this together, we hope to attend the next one if possible.

Next year

Our unit will repeat the Vintage Rally next February; this time at Haven's Landing RV Resort in Montgomery, Texas. This resort is a bit more pricey, but it is a first class park with paved, full-hookup sites and nice meeting facilities. I have attended several rallies there.

Montgomery is close to I-45 and easily reached from Dallas/ Ft Worth, Houston, and Austin. We hope all this year's attendees will come again.

This may well be a yearly event for our unit.
