Post your arrival and departure times and see if someone can buddy-up with you. It's 16.4 miles to the airport. There's no close-by shopping to the RV park, but typically attendees run back and forth to the nearest stores fairly often.

Great idea!

Southwest Air,
flight 2629 arriving Albuquerque 7:40pm

Southwest Air flight 1901 departing Albuquerque 4:55pm

so we would have to be at Alb airport at 3pm? Or is Albuquerque airport not a zoo like Oakland?

We pay gas, we pack light, and will help the community any way we can. We are all ears...

Plan ahead

What Zep said. There is nothing around the Park. If anybody has connections in the area it would help make a better event if there were a couple food truck types there. I am sure there must be something Vicki could put up with. And, there are no markets close by...requires a vehicle to get to one. I plan on offering rides to any who need one.

Just another example of how cool we are

We have an airport to campsite ride already. How cool are Airstreamers?

Zep, we will be needing a grocery store ride for some basics and will buy you a nice bottle of whatever you desire. We will come prepared.

I keep thinking of how neat its going to be to meet people Ive known on this forum since 2004. We should have name tags with our Airstream names and our given names.

Shelly will be with me at the rally, but won't be attending any classes. Will she be allowed at the meals? I was looking at the posted schedule, and noticed it doesn't show the length of the classes, such as floor replacement. Does that class take the whole time, or is it repeated? Looking forward to it!

Swap meet ?

Is there going to be of swap meet, originally there was some mention of that. I'm sure I have parts others want and I don't need.

Easily fixed with masking tape and permanent marker...

Yeah Id say if we want to, a piece of masking tape on the back of our new VTA shirts!!

I cant imagine the work that would go into trying to match forum names and real names!

This is a huge undertaking, this VTA. Thanks for this opportunity VTA organizers. This is just what the Airstream Doctor ordered. Really reasonable price, too. We wouldnt be able to attend if it were much higher.

I just got a hotel room (Days Inn Albuquerque West) and will solve transportation to and from hotel later. I looked at the aerial view and I don't see much besides cement...it's an RV park, not campground. I now realize there is a difference. That sealed the deal for us! What would we do, bring mattresses and a tent on the plane? I got a low rate (but everything is cheaper than the Bay Area) so maybe we'll get a rental car if the airport-hotel-Academy trips turn out to be a burden or hassle.

Maybe even split one with someone and zip each other back and forth in it. Who else is in a hotel sans car?

It looks like our hotel is less than a block away from yours. I'm sure we can work something out.

Hi Thalweg, yes I made the reservations last night during an insomnia attack and didn't get a chance to mention to you that I reserved our rooms near your hotel!

I have never walked through an RV park, didn't realize that they aren't necessarily campgrounds. So glad I took a look and used my brain for once!
