Bisbee for Labor Day 2009

We’re on a roll now! Imagine...Two updates in two days!

We’ve finished our travel log update of a long Labor Day weekend jaunt to Bisbee, Arizona and The Shady Dell...with AS friends Louis & Sergio (LHall) and Mark & Ron (Manor68). OK, it’s a relatively short log ... but hey, it’s progress!

Only a few pics below ... But they are more on the website (link below)... We’ve been to Bisbee and The Shady Dell several times, so please check out our previous trips there, too, to see all the great trailers in The Shady Dell collection (and prior antics)....

(And remember if you don't have your trailer with you, you can RENT one of The Dell’s vintage trailers just like you would a hotel room...you’ll have a blast, gaarr-un-teeed! Just go to their website: http://www.theshadydell.com )

We always have a good time at The Shady Dell, thanks to Jason & Jen, the owners, and the rest of the crew...just can't say enough nice things about them.

Enjoy and you’ll be hearing from us again soon as we get the rest of the trips logged... (We are determined!)

Here are a few teaser pics:

Pic #1: Caravanning behind Louis & Sergio to Bisbee...
Pic #2: Welcome to Bisbee!
Pic #3: Arriving at the Shady Dell...
Pic #4: Louis & Sergio's rig...
Pic #5: Mark & Ron's and Terry & Greg's Rig...
Pic #6: Hanging out at Mark & Ron's (Cody Dog, Ron, Greg, Luois' Back, Sergio)

Good a.m., Thank you for sharing your pictures. Are you a "professional" photographer? Fantastic shots with nice subject matter and happy people.

We both use the camera, but Greg does most of the TTW pictures, so he gets credit there... If we stopped every time we wanted to taka a picture we'd never get where we're going!

September in the Pines 4CU Rally, Heron Lake, NM

Hey all... Well, better later than never, they say... We have had a busy fall of travel so we are a bit behind with things, but we promise to catch up as qucikly as possible on the Travel Log so that it's not "old news"...hopefully you'll still find the info timely.

The latest trip on the log is the "September in the Pines" 4CU Rally held mid-Sept at Heron Lake State Park near Chama, NM hosted by JimC & RodD and Bob & LouW. It was a long ride for us...1250 miles round-trip, but worth it. It's always good to gather with the 4CU gang and play. We broke the drive up into two legs...Tucson to Holbrook, AZ on I-40 where we met Louis & Sergio and Julianne and then caravaned to Gallup to spend the night...then from Gallup north through Shiprock and east to Heron Lake the next day. Caravaning is fun! Much nicer to follow an Airstream down the road than just about anything else! The rally was good...we had a lot of new folks and day guests who stopped by to see us, and it was the maiden voyage for Barbara & Janis in their vintage rig, so that was fun. They did great the first time out! Weather was overcast and we had rain of and on with one particularly torrential downpour with thunder & lightning the evening of the potluck...but we all survived albeit a little damp...but no dampened spirits were noted. We're Airstreamers! We can take a little rain! The rally was over all too soon, and we set our sights on getting home as quickly as possible because we only had 1 week before we had to return to ABQ for the Baloon Fiesta...so we took I-25 south through NM and home on I-10...but not without a nice side-adventure. We stayed over night at Caballo Lake one night on the way home, then we drove over the mountains from Caballo to Silver City (instead of going around the mountains to the south)...what a beautiful drive...so glad we did it, but glad we were towing a Bambi and and not 34' of aluminum... Big panoramic views from way up high in the pine forest...totally unexpected and totally beautiful...glad we took the time to do that... Now we have to return to the Gila National Forest north of Silver City at some point when we have more time to explore. It never ends! (Ain't it great??)

Below are some pics to lure you to our travel log (link below)...hope you enjoy! The next entry will be the Balloon Fiesta...so stay tuned!

Pic #1: Our rig at the Wigwam Motel on Old route 66 in HOlbrook while we waited for the gang to meet us...great place!
Pic #2: Just west of the Arizona/New Mexico state line on I-40...
Pic #3: Arriving at the USA RV Park in Gallup NM...very accommodating folks!...
Pic #4: Near Shiprock, NM...very bleak in some ways, but somehow intriguing...flat plains with outcrops of rocky spires...Monument Valley is just to the west, and this reminded us of that...just not as colorful...
Pic #5: Caravaning through a canyon east of Farmington, NM...
Pic #6: Heron Lake...
Pic #7: Heron Lake... (Dang! That's the same shot basically...there are more on the website!)
Pic #8: Around the camp fire at Bob & Lou's...
Pic #9: Caballo Lake at Sunset form the camp ground...
Pic #10: From a pullout in the Gila National Forest looking back east at the road we'd just driven up...it was something!

Hi, another great report and the pictures make me want to hit the road again soon. We have had some really good rallies, but the Balloon Fiesta tops the list for us. I will be waiting right here for your report, and of course, pictures from this year's Balloon Fiesta. Thank You for sharing your trips and taking us along on an internet excursion.

Thanks, Bob...it's always nice to hear that folks are enjoying the travel log... You're right that the Balloon Fiesta is a special event... Are you going to be there in 2010? We thought, "Well, we'll go this year, and then we won't need to go again for a while...but I donno... as we go through the pics, etc, and remember everything...well, we are getting all excited and thinking we'll probably go again next year! Maybe we can see all the things we missed this year because we were so wide-eyed!"

In the meantime, Happy Trails!
