Hello, Oh Wagon Mistress!

We are very much looking forward to our first rally, and meeting you, Mr. Inside-Out, and our fellow 'streamers! Thanks for opening it up to us west coast interlopers!

We're awful proud of our Scottish heritage. Will anyone else be bringing haggis for the potluck?

40 days away--but who's counting?!!!

Tom

I just returned last night from that country - spent three nights at Sugarite Canyon State Park, just over the pass from Tinidad in New Mexico. Great setting. Even at 7,000 ft., however, it can get quite warm in the daytime in August.

Vintage Airstream Club 3rd Annual Rocky Mountain Rally

When my plans to attend the International and tour New England were changed due to last minute glitches with the Eldorado, I thought that I had surely missed an opportunity to attend the VAC Rocky Mountain Rally - - but was relieved to find that I wasn't too late.

I am looking forward to meeting everyone at the Rally, and may even try to extend my stay a bit as well. I haven't been to Colorado for nearly ten years, and have a number of places that I want to revisit. I can't even entirely rule out attending with my '75 Cadillac towing the '78 Minuet - - must get a set of wheels that run true before this will work out - - never realized how easily damaged the '68-'78 Eldorado wheels can be, and that there are virtually no substitutes out there.

Sorry, the main meat dish is included with your rally fee...how about a nice salad or dessert instead?

If you're considering it, you should go!

We went to the Rocky Mountain VAC rally last year in Estes Park, and we had the best time we've ever had with our trailer, rally or not. If there were even a chance we'd be able to go this year, we'd be there in a heartbeat, but work is preventing us. If it weren't, we'd happily make the drive again from St. Louis.

If you're even considering going to the rally, we would highly, highly recommend it. The people are absolutely wonderful, the location is fantastic, and you won't regret it for a second. We're going to a different VAC rally this summer that's a little closer to us, but I just have a feeling it can't live up to last year's RM VAC rally. Our regional WBCCI rally surely didn't, and we're going to next year's RM VAC rally no matter what happens at work!

So how does this work? Can a wanna-be show up, meet people, envy trailers, etc?

The Open House on Saturday afternoon is open to the public and you're welcome to come hang out with your future "best friends" It really is a lot of fun ~

To date, we are expecting 34 vintage trailers and M/H...and over 80 attendees! The entire population of La Veta is only 978...the locals aren't going to know what hit them!

Hope to see you there...be sure and stop by and say "Hi"!

Shari

Here's how to find us:

DIRECTIONS

FROM THE EAST:
If you are heading SOUTH ON I-25, get off at Exit #52. Take CO-85/87 into Walsenburg for about 3 miles. In the center of town, turn RIGHT/WEST onto CO-160. Continue approximately 11 miles WEST on CO-160. Turn LEFT/SOUTH on CO-12 Highway of Legends towards La Veta. Continue approximately 4-1/2 miles then turn RIGHT on 2nd Street to Circle the Wagons Campground.

If you are heading NORTH ON I-25, get off at Exit #49 and head Left/West towards Walsenburg. In the center of town, turn RIGHT/WEST onto CO-160. Continue approximately 11 miles WEST on CO-160. Turn LEFT/SOUTH on CO-12 Highway of Legends towards La Veta. Continue approximately 4-1/2 miles then turn RIGHT on 2nd Street to Circle the Wagons Campground.

FROM THE WEST:
From Alamosa travel EAST on CO-160 towards Walsenburg approximately 57 miles to the junction with CO-12 Highway of Legends (if you get to Walsenburg, you’ve gone too far!). Turn SOUTH/RIGHT towards La Veta onto CO-12 Highway of Legends. Continue approximately 4-1/2 miles then turn RIGHT on 2nd Street to Circle the Wagons Campground.

SECOND STREET is an unpaved but a well maintained road. The campground is located on the right about ¼ mile along the Cucharas River. Look for VAC RALLY directional signs & arrows along the route.

See you there ~

Vintage Airstream Club 3rd Annual Rocky Mountain Rally

Greetings All!

I just returned from the Region 7 Vintage Airstream Club Rally in Waldo, WI (Sheboygan area). The Open House was VERY well attended, and I believe shocked the organizers as well as the participants. Having opened my trailer for more than a dozen open houses over the past eight years, this was one of the most memorable yet. There were people visiting from three states, and it took something of a concerted effort to find us as our location had not been publicised in the media reports - - word of mouth and helpful police agencies in the area directed many an interested onlooker to our location. We had visitors from Friday right on through our departure on Sunday - - all visits were cordial, and it was quite interesting to discuss Airstreaming with so many new people. The national news magazine that ran the article metnioning both the Region 7 as well as the Rocky Mountain Rally certainly brought in a number of visitors - - including a free-lance photographer/writer who is working on a story for one of the national monthly magazines as well as a book on the interest in Vintage RVing.

The Region 7 Rally certainly has me primed for the Rocky Mountain Rally. I talked with two couples today (Sunday), and they are planning to drop by the Rocky Mountain Rally open house as they were planning to vacation in Colorado Springs at that time. There will be at least two particpants from the Region 7 Rally who will be attending the Rocky Mountain Rally as well.

Nothing quite compares to the pleasure of attending a Vintage Airstream Rally and sharing in the all of the activities - - the only problem is that the summer is just flying by much too quickly - - first day of school is August 18 for my district!

Kevin
