Cancelling reservations

Hi all, well, I was coming to 'watch' with Peanut Butter but she is incapicitated. I do not know if there are openings still or not. But if you want my reservation let me know soon.

I still would love to come for the open house so I may come down from Denver for just that and come back same day or stay all night in the motel.

Vintage at heart

While our'02 Bambi is far from vintage, we just couldn't resist joining this rally. As a teenager, I got to see virtually every model A/S produced in the late 50s thru the late 60s, as I had an aunt and uncle who restored used A/S for the dealer located in Lubbock, TX.

We will be driving partway Thursday and arriving shortly after noon Friday. Looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing all these great vintage A/S.

Question

A while back there was a thread about a Colorado rally which was going to be held in NW New Mexico. Former regular poster John from Florida was to be the Host I think.
Wasn't that the Rocky Mt. Rally too?
How did that one go and how was old John doing?
Can someone direct me to that thread please?
I need comments about that area and State Park.


Sue

You're right Sue...it was the Rocky Mountain AirstreamForum.com Rally...

This one is the Vintage Airstream Club's (VAC) Regional Rally ~

Here's a link to the previous thread regarding the Forum Rally...

BTW, a GREAT time was had by all!

WOW! Only a week away...we're up to 40 Trailers!

If you are still "thinking about it" it's almost too late ~

We have obtained some additional sites, so we can accomodate a few more folks...but please send me an email to obtain "Late Registration" information...

print attendee list and John

Just now I was getting ready to print the list of attendees and thought I would mention it incase you like to do same.

Attendee list is at: http://www.insideout-design.net/vac-...attendees.html

If you are forgetful at all, the list comes in handy and there are a lot more this time than at New Mexico.

Also, I just got an email from this morning from John-host of New Mexico-MacDonald, he has returned to Florida due to health concerns of family members. I was hoping he could jump over the mountains from NM but no.

Send him your prayers/good wishes/engery/love or what ever you do. I know I will miss him.

I will be in the "Motel" on Sat., Mike is in Florida. Looking forward to renewing friendships and meeting new ones!

Lots of GlobeTrotters coming

I was surprised to see that there will more Globetrotters at the VAC rally than any other length. There are 8 vintage GlobeTrotters registered and if you consider that our '02 19' Bambi is actually the same length as the GlobeTrotter (wish A/S would return to the old names), there will be 9. Not far behind in representation will be the TradeWind with 7 units.

Hi,

I hope you guys enjoy yourselves; it sure sounds like you will! Being new to the RV/AirStream world we could not get our act together to attend this year, but it is on my calendar for next year.

I hope all we need to do is join WBCCI and the VAC! However, we don't have a GlobeTrotter or TrandWind!

-Sheila

We're nuts!

As Shari said, we've either bravely or stupidly decided to drive out to LaVeta just for the weekend because we loved last year's rally so much and loved even more the people we met.

Let's see, though...928 miles each way, a 39-year-old trailer, our very first trip of any kind with it...

I hope we're able to sleep tonight. We're a bit nervous about a 2000-mile, 4-day maiden trip with a trailer that's several years older than either one of us.

Sue and Von


I think everybody had a really great time. In fact there are some who are still there.

I think you'll see full details and lots of pictures on the vintage website. Ages ranges from very young (adults) to very very young (children) ((hows that for being politically correct!))

Oldest trailer was 1947 and newest was 2003.

I'm not aware of any trouble - bit of rain - I found a new leak in my trailer - open house was packed lots of folks came by to look at all the trailers. NBC news was there filming and interviewing - sure you all will here more on that later - great food, great organization - really great time.

I came back with lots of new ideas.

Its fun to meet folks that you have known for a long time, but never met........

I don't any decision has been made for next year at this point.

Not sure what else to say, other than it is a must attend event for anyone who whats to truely have a great time!

Ken J.
