Heading Out for Fool Hollow Lake

Heading out for Fool Hollow Lake State Park near Show Low, AZ tomorrow (18 Oct) for a week (heading home 25 Oct). There's a southern Arizona rally at Fool Hollow next month but we can't make that date...this will be our annual fall trip to Fool Hollow...a very nice park... This time of year it's cool but not too cold yet, and the summer crowds are gone. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and say "hey"...

Will post details and pics when we get home...

Fantastic Web Site !!!

Hi TBRich,

I just spent about an hour delving thru your web site... It is absolutely fantastic !!!

A thousand thanks for all the work you put in on it. You have also just justified a reason for me to make another trip out to the Southwest one of these days because I would really like to go to some of the places you have shown -- and that is beautiful photography by the way...

One quick question (since you & I have identical Bambi's) is what about the awnings I see on the rear window and drivers side of trailer ??? They really look nice & I wish I would have had something like that last month when I was baking away in the hot sun in NM. Did those come from Airstream ???

At any rate, kudos to your web site...

best regards, Dave W.

Trial run this last weekend

Came back yesterday from 4 days dry camping at the Chiricahua Bonita Campground. This was our first trip with our new '08 AS Safari Sport 22'. It performed as expected with no real surprises. Coming up from Tuscon we hit some really heavy head winds but experienced no sway at all. We don't use a WDH and tow with a '06 Honda Ridgeline. With air on we got 14mph. Coming back down the cold wind was on our back so no need for AC and we got just over 17mpg so we are extremely happy with our new acquisition.

Hey Dave...thanks! So glad you enjoyed our travel log...stay tuned...our most recent trip to Fool Hollow will be up as soon as I can go through the photos, sit down and do it! AZ is full of great places to go...southern AZ in the winter and spring and the northern high country in the fall and spring are great. Arizona State Parks are very nice we've found, and most have at least electic, sometimes water, and a few with full hookups demanded by certain times of the year. Unfortunately, only a very few make reservationis at this point. (Roper Lake State Park..all sites are reservable...and Buckskin Mountain State Park on the Lower Colorado River...the latter is unofficial & unadvertised...they are testing the reservation bit with a small number of reservable sites, and you have to call them.... We are booked for Buckskin Mt. between Christmas through New Year's...been there two previous Christmas/New Year's season in our previous small SOB motor home...this will be be the first time with the Bambi.)

The awnings we added...they are Zip-Dee and match the curbside awning...we ordred then through our Airstream dealer (Oasis RV Center in Tucson) and they installed them... It took about a week and a half to get here and only 2 hours for installation. We really like them for the sun in our part of the country...not to mention how cool they look! They cost a little more than if they had been ordered as an option on the trailer, but since we bought ours off the lot, we didn't have that opportunity. We are hoping that they will help reduce interior temps in full sun...our dealer calls them "portable trees" which I thought was clever of him. They provide quite a bit of additonal "shade" when deployed, and even though we only have the small windows on the street side, the skin is shaded and that counts. We also have noticed that if you are camped next to a larger SOB you get a little more privacy because they are looking down on you...(sometimes in more ways than one)...

Travel well...

Hey, Ahab...congrats on completing your maiden voiyage unscathed! And welcome to Airstreaming from Tucson metro-ans (is that a word?). Glad you are liking your new 22' Sport...they are sweet! And you even dry camped! Do let us know how the Bonita Campground in the Chiricahuas was...we'd like to get there this winter sometime...beautiful country. Was it busy? It's a small campground and first-come-first-served, and it's a spell from anywhere, so it makes me nervous to drive all that way and not be able to get in... Sounds like you are getting great mileage, too. (We get between 12 and 14 with the 19' Bambi towing with a 2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad V6...better when it's downhill or the wind is behind us!)

There are a number of great places to go locally within 125 miles, by the way...we go out often for a long weekend...Catalina State Park very near Oro Valley, Gilbert Ray Campground next to the Sonora Desert Museum (county operated), Picacho Peak State Park up the Interstate toward Phx (never in summer except to overnight..maybe), Roper Lake, Karchner Cavern State Park (we have not been there yet), Patagonia Lake State Park, Mt. Lemon for dry camping (pretty dusty/ashy since the fire, and very very busy in the summer)...and we're looking for more all the time.

Many Happy Streaming Times to You!

We started going to Bonita mid '70s and not much has changed. We try to get there by 11:00am on a Friday so you usually get your pick. No drive throughs, and only 5-7 places where you can easily back in. If full, you can always boondock along Pinery Creek. Pinery Canyon Rd. is gravel and not bad at all. If your really brave, go on up to Rustler Park. Outstanding! The Chiri's have numerous areas like Turkey Creek, Rucker Canyon, Cave Creek, to name a few. Some best approached from the East.

Happy Travels

Picacho Peak State Park (AZ)

Hey All...

Well finally, we have got our travel log web site (link below) updated to include out get-away over Veteran's Day weekend to Picacho Peak State Park, about 45 miles north of Tucson on I-10 between Tucson and Phoenix... And, even though we'd just been there, we went back for a long weekend Thanksgiving weekend just to get out of Dodge and to enjoy the long weekend and the turkey dinner leftovers.

On the trip after Thanksgiving, we got to meet our first Airforums folks! lhall (Louis & Sergio) from Phx went down to Bisbee to spend the weekend at The Sahdy Dell (our recent trip there is also on our travel log), and they stopped by Pichaco Peak on thier way home to Phoenix on Sunday and found us (we were the only other Aristream in the park, so it wasn't hard)...Great guys and a wonderful 1962 28' Ambassador that they've only had since July...already they have made headway, plus hey are able to use it! It was nice to ifnally meet someone from the forums! We look forward to seeing more of them...

Anyway...back to the task at hand... Here are a few puctures of the Veterna's Day Picahco trip...the "full monte" is on our website link below. (If you've visited the site recently, you may need to refresh your browser to get the updated files.)...

Pic #1: Picacho Peak from our camp site just before sunset...
Pic #2: Our camp site with Picacho Peak in the background...
Pic #3: Looking past our campsite southeast toward Tucson and the Catalina Mountains...
Pic #4: Along side the Bambi looking Northeast away from the Peak toward I-10 and themountains beyond...
Pic #5: The view from our Bambi door...
Pic #6: Looking northeast toward I-10 (you can see the traffic) just before sunset...
Pic #7: A Saguaro cactus with Picacho Peak in the background...
Pic #8: A Saguaro near our campsite, up close and personal....
Pic #9: Setting sun reflected on the Bambi...I love this shot...
PIc #10: Sunset looking west...

Hope you enjoy...

Stay tuned for maore adventures!

Wow, looking at those pics, I keep on wondering what the devil we're doing by staying the winter here in Angel Fire. Argh! We've got bunches of snow of snow on the ground now, and more is due tomorrow (opening day of the slopes).

The only good news, if you can call it that, is that our snow plow (aka 1948 Ford 8N) now has its snow chains on, and the brakes work.

Hello Terry and Greg,

It was nice to meet someone from the forums and another Airstreamer in the flesh. We had fun comparing the new and old in our Airstreams. It is amazing to me how similar they are even after 45 years. Meeting you guys was a nice finish to our Thanksgiving weekend in Bisbee. We hope to meet up again with you guys sometime after the first of the year.

Take care and Happy Holidays!

Joshua Tree National Park?

We did another short trip to Roper Lake State Park from the 14th to the 17th...pretty darn cold, but we survived...will update with some pictures when I can...

And we are heading out for our winter after-Christmas-through-New Year's trip to the lower Colorado River above Parker, AZ to stay at Buckskin Mt. and Cattail Cove State Parks...we are going to be out for about a week and a half...

My question...we are thinking of maybe hopping over across the CA border to Joshua Tree National Park for a few days before we head home...don't know for sure how that's going to work out so we haven't made reservations...and have not been there yet...and would prefer not to have to make reservations if we don't need to...do you think there will be a reasonable number of campsites available say the 3rd of 4th of Jan or are reservations really necessary? We are thinking of going to the Black Rock or Indian Cove campgrounds and then going south through the park to hook up with I-10 to head home...

Thanks...
TB

Have a safe trip! The drove through Joshua last January on the way to a rally at 29 Palms. We did not see anyone in the park, but it was snowing pretty hard at the time.

When you are at the Buckskin you might want to stop at the Blue Water Casino Resort. It is on the way out of Parker headed north. The food is ok and the price is good. I stay there a lot and enjoy the game of blackjack.

I look forward to your pictures...

Thanks, Richard...

We will drive safely...don't know if we'll make it to Joshua Tree, but it's a possiblity.

Where was the Rally held? There is a San Bernadino County campground near 29 Palms that sounds interesting...Knott Sky Park is that where the Rally was?...maybe stay there and explore into the park? We'll see...

Will be thinking of you all at Picacho...you should have a blast!

The rally was held at the 29 Palms resort. It was a full hook up park with not much to offer. It would not be on my list of places to recomend...

We have been remiss in our responsibility, and have not updated our trip log (link below) with our most recent trips...since before Christmas. (Been busy caming!)

Since then we have been to the Lower Colorado River above Parker, AZ for 12 days (wonderful)...then 2 weeks later a long weekend for MLK Day at Gilbert Ray Campground near Tucson (chort getaway, but very very nice)...then this last weekend, 4 nights at Pataogonia Lake State Park between Patagonia and Nogales, AZ (a little chilly at night, but we stayed cozt warm...and cold rain the morning we came home)... We have lots of great pics and some fun AS encounters to relate so will get back with those...

In the meantime wanted to relate the fact that there were 5 Airstreams at Patagonia Lake during our stay...3 Bambis...us, a new AS friend from N. Carolina who we originally met at Gilbert Ray, another Bambi (all three were 06 19') belonging to a couple from Maine on an epic tour of the SW and Mexico witht heir Lab and cat...plus an Excella from Ohio (who we never met because they left early the day after we got there)...and a Classic from Sacramento...also on an extended tour of the SW meandering back to Sacramento by March sometime... All were fun folks and we all found it amazing that there were so many Airstreams in once place...even the SOB folks commented on the number of Airstreams!

That's all for nowl But will try to give some pics and an updated website soon...
