Just wanted to let you all know we will have one of the few professional Airstream appraisers accepted by insurance companies and the Internal Revenue Service in the country on site and available this year - he will be doing a presentation of trailer values as well as insurance information for these vintage trailers - I'm really excited about this.

He will also doing appraisals for a reasonable fee during the rally.

Thumbs up Inbound from San Diego

Ken,
Nanc and I are planning on heading to the rally!
After stopping by Canyon de Chelly and Chaco Canyon, of course...ok maybe Espanola and Santa Fe...
Hauling the '07 as the 1970 Safari is not quite ready. I'll register at Enchanted Trails this Friday and register for the rally when you send the package. Thanks...
Oh, is there a swap meet?
Thanks, looking forward to seeing ya'll again.

Smile Next time...

Lake Powell gets its own dedicated trip, more time and giving Nanc's wrist a bit more time to heal. This run is explore, hike and SW cookin'...

Wish the Safari was ready for this run, just a few weeks to go! I was hoping to pick up some tips on Wing window glass install or remove/replace streetside rear segment. I'm in on the buck rivet and shine it up classes!
See ya'll-

We'll be coming in via Monument Valley where we'll stay at Gouldings. Is there anything we should be sure not to miss in MV?

Ken, can you tell us a little bit about the swap meet? Will this be all weekend long?

North of Monument Valley is "The Dugway". A gravel section of switchbacks up the mesa on Utah 281 leading to Muley Point, Valley of the Gods and Natural Bridges Monument. There is a warning sign saying "Trailers not Advised" but my Tradewind made it with no sweat, although I would avoid it in the rain. The Dugway was cut to move uranium ore trucks. The views are incomparable.

The views from the switchbacks are pretty good, but the real treat is going out to Muley Point and looking over the Goosenecks back to Monument Valley. It's about 5 miles of dirt road out to Muley Point, just take it slow. This is a mediium telephoto of that view...

The roads (top and bottom) to the switchback are paved, just the switchback itself is gravel.
