We are looking forward to going, and it will be our first Rally. Gert's renovation is not as far along as I had hoped. I am kinda concerned that she will be the ugly duckling of the rally. But she will be the best-looking (and only) 61 Caravel there.

Another great rally!

Hey, I know everyone is still in recovery mode, but where are all of you? I can't believe I'm the first to make a post on the rally. I think the final count was 81 Airstreams. Of those about 7 were not vintage. For awhile I was afraid it would go badly. Several participants canceled due to a variety of problems, including Bill Payne, last year's great auctioneer. Then at the last minute it seemed we had several drop in participants. Every space allocated to us by the Garden of The Gods park was filled, and even then there were a few more hangers on parked outside the rally area. Everyone was accomodated, and we even managed to pull off the auction with volunteers taking Bill's place (although he was sorely missed). Thanks Rob Davis, and Bill Mackey! Our new Airstream Dealership in Colorado Springs displayed a new Roof Patio 390 MH (thanks to Roger Pruter) and from the top of it I took the accompanying photo. From all reports it was a great rally. I only wish I'd had more time to take more photos and visit, but like all the committee members I was kept pretty busy.

Another Great Rally!

Greetings Forrest!

It truly was another great Rally. I pulled into my driveway in far Southern Illinois at just shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. The first day following the Rally was less than 400 miles to Russell, KS with a day set aside for a side-trip to Natoma, Paradise, and Waldo, KS; then it was the long day's drive home of over 650 miles (wouldn't have considered such a long day if the air conditioner on the Argosy hadn't malfunctioned). It doesn't seem possible that another of the Rocky Mountain VAC Rallys is over and it is about time for school to begin again.

There were so many things to do and see in the area surrounding the campground that it was difficult to choose -- even after having spent several days beyond the rally touring the area last year.

You are one of the real troopers in the Airstream/Argosy world! I guess the repairman never did show up to fix your A/C, but you soldiered though. Good luck in your new teaching post. We were so happy to have you attend the rally!

Out for coffee!

Not yet. I volunteered do gather, resize & reformat, organize, caption and post the photos but just haven't gotten it finished yet. It's on my mind; I have to get it foremost on my schedule.
