While we were there it would be a good time to take the steam train from Chama to the high country where the Fall colors should be good. A good camping location would be Heron Lake State Park (Blanco Loop as first choce or Willow Creek loop) - $14/night with water and electric. The park is about 15 miles South of Chama. The state park reservation system will be shut down so it is grab a site when you get there.

Due to a lack of response, I am going to call the Heron Lake SP side trip canceled.

I've done a quick look thru 17 pages of post and this post from Ken J indicates that there is still room somewhere? It's an event we've wanted to attend for some time and now the travel window is open and we'd go if there some guarantee of space, somewhere with other A/S'ers

And if things are too full, then we'll just have to plan for another year and go elsewhere this October.

Ken,
I am posting from the Labor Day rally in Williams. Having a great time. Could you give us an update on any open spots that we might have at this moment?

See post #230 - I still do not have final billing yet - been away for a few days - and I'm off for the rest of this week - so maybe - I would need checks like overnight if there is space....

What I need is definite commitments of folks who want to attend - have not heard from anyone....

Ken

Just saw this thread and am also wondering if there is still space left to join? We currently have reservations at the Balloon Fiesta RV facility from Oct. 7th through 12th. We would gladly change and am able to commit to join this rally with fellow Airstreams! Please advise - fingers crossed

Jerry and I need to cancel our reservation for the Fiesta. Unfortunately, work is interfering big time. That is good news for the pocketbook, but bad news for time off to travel. If it is possible for someone to take the reservation and reimburse us, that would be great.

Ken, let me know if there there is a way to have some one take our reservation. I am so sorry to have to do this--we were both ready to roll.

Ok folks - I can't promise I can do this last minute in 2009 - the balloon folks are fabulous to work with - soooo I've reserved several more spaces for about 1 week - they are holding our final billing for us - so PLEASE if you want to join us please let me know ASAP - I'm out of town tomorrow - Sunday, so you have about that much time to think about it when I check my mail on Monday.... I've heard that there are several out there that want to join us, so here is you opportunity to have the blast of your life...

Ken J.

Great news Ken. We were talking around the campfire (propane) about the event at the Williams 4CU rally and everyone agreed that this is something that should be on your Bucket List.

Caryl, that's awful! We were really looking forward to having another pair of Evanstonians there with us. Funny, it seems we can't meet up where we live 5 minutes apart, but we almost made it work 1000 miles away!

I know you'll be there in spirit though, and I'm sure you won't have trouble finding somebody to fill your spot.
