Wow, look at all the new Airstream owners in and around Austin! How exciting! Welcome!

I belong to the Texas Highland Lakes Unit and the majority of our Unit lives in the Austin area. Both our current and past president live in Austin. Our last Rally was there at McKinney Falls just a couple of weeks ago. Our next Rally is scheduled for March 10-13 in Boerne.

But the BIG event you'll not want to miss is the Vintage Rally set for May 12-16, 2011 at Tres Rios in Glen Rose, Texas. The Vintage Rally is sponsored by the Texas Highland Lakes Unit and is open to all years and models of Airstream products and all WBCCI members and non-members. It is the one event where members and non-members, vintage owners and owners with newer Airstream products can all come together in celebration of Airstreams. Our seminar chairman (Pahaska, here on the Forums) has a long list of classes scheduled for the Rally with lots and lots of valuable information to be had. To me, the highlight of the Vintage Rally is the Open House where you are welcome to look in and examine and visit with owners of all styles and models of Airstreams.

Please let me know if I can get you more information about upcoming Rallies, membership in a fun and exciting Unit or just contact information with other Airstream owners in or around Austin.

Once again, Welcome!

Hi to Moonpie, lcurrie and Beecavetx

Austin is a great place for Airstreams, right?

We are always glad to meet other Airstreamers in the Austin area and have made some really great friendships through the Texas Highland Lakes Unit. If you all would be interested in attending an upcoming Rally with us let us know. It would be fun to caravan together to an event and we would enjoy introducing all of you to our wonderful friends in the WBCCI Texas Highland Lakes Unit.

The upcoming Texas Vintage Rally is the rally that we joined at two years ago. Not only is this rally interesting and an opportunity to learn a lot about Airstreams, but it also is really fun to meet new friends and looks like it's going to be held a really fun RV resort.

- Frank and Mike

Yes! That would be me. Small world, huh? I've put my TD dreams on hold temporarily, but would still love to build one someday.

I'm glad to see you on the forums,

I'd love to make the rally in May but rumor has it I'm going to be laying on a beach that weekend. While I'm bummed to miss it, I'm sure I'll enjoy myself.

Smile Ready now!

We were trying to make it to the McKinney Falls campout, but our Moonpie wasn't out of the shop yet. She's ready to go now though!
Will certainly try to make the next event.

Hey Moonpie, Icurrie and Beecavetx! Welcome to the forums. Hope you guys enjoy your AS as much as we have ours. Austin is a great city, but can't imagine how you get the AS around with so much traffic there.

Regards, Terry

Hello and welcome to the forums! We are also new to Airstreaming. There is a great gathering of Airstreamers at Canyon of the Eagles this weekend. We had to cancel our reservation, unfortunately. I highly recommend all of you attend a rally soon. We attended our first rally in December at Blanco State Park. We had a wonderful time and met some truly awesome people. Hope to see you somewhere down the road!

Work is never done, so take time to play!

Happy to finally be part of the crowd

yes, we have arrived in abbeville, la- betty's rv park, a postage sized parking lot that many travelers revere....all because of betty and the happy hours each day and her motherly attitude towards her campers...otherwise pass it by. but i digress...i want some mud bugs.....

we are headed for grand isle state park tomorrow and then to fairview-riverside state park near mandeville park after that.......

but then , all this is down the road a far piece from austin, texas.....
