Air Members going to Bozeman

My preparations for the International in Bozeman will really take off next week -- our last day of school is tomorrow. If the storms hold off this weekend, I will be taking the '75 Eldorado out of storage for a new set of tires on its restored factory rims and a thorough detailing. Next week, the Minuet will receive its long-needed Spring cleaning. Some of my neighbors are already "cautioning" me "not to try to re-create The Long, Long, Trailer" with my convertible/travel trailer combination -- it is not the first time that I have been cautionned about this as on a Caravan several years ago, I bought a pair of geode book ends at nearly every stop and packed them in the storage drawers below the front lounge in the Overlander.

If all continues as planned, the Cadillac's convertible top will be seeing quite a bit of use during its trip to the International Rally. I am sure that some of my friends with whom I will be Caravanning to the International are already speculating about what kind of "Murphy's Law Disasters" will follow my rig this time! My rig generally sees to it that my travels are rarely boring.

Will be looking forward to meeting other Forums members at the Rally. I will be joining the Vintage Club for its Pre-Rally at the KOA and Parade to the Rally Grounds.

Kevin

It'll be great to see you again, Kevin! I'm so glad everything's coming together so well for you. But, I definitely don't want to jinx you since I've seen how trouble can follow you!

Me too

I don't think I posted previously in this thread.

We are leaving Texas June 19, killing some time at Tetons/Yellowstone, and getting into Bozeman the 28th.

My wife is our unit President, so she has to do the delegate thing.

After Bozeman, 3 nights in Cody, then dawdle on home to Texas.

By the way, a friend who has traveled that part of the country extensively tells me that Dead Indian Pass, near Cody, is the prettiest road he has ever been on. I looked at it on Google Earth and it has the most switchbacks I have ever seen on one road. We're going to make a side trip there while at Cody.

If you come up from West Yellowstone like we are doing, you come in to a Y-intersection at the west end of town and the right branch (nearly straight) is West College Street. Takes you right to the bullpen.

Waiting at home for the UPS truck or the repairman, that's killing time.

Anyone else with extra time after the Rally? We'd like to see Glacier Nat'l. It's too far for a day trip from Bozeman. Thought if others are interested maybe we could caravan up together!

We are planning on leaving on July 2 and heading to Glacier before going home.

After the Rally I would love to join you to caravan to Glacier NP!

July, 2 does not work for me.

Oh, I think we'll be staying on a little longer in Bozeman, Bill. Maybe leave July 4? But could be talked into other ideas. You can scout the route for us! I'm thinking about camping in Hungry Horse.

Dallas,

Will you be at the KOA before the VAC parade? If so, we can talk then. We have not worked on the route yet.
