The road to Salida

Jan and I hit the road to the RMVAC in Salida yesterday morning. As someone said, the trip of 1000 miles begins with a flat tire and it did. The valve core on one would not seat, but a new core had if fixed in a few minutes.

It's a long drive across the Navajo Nation, but we made it. We stopped in to visit AirstreamGypsy in her wonderful EarthShip. We had a great visit, but had to hit the road again. We are at the KOA just outside of Durango this morning after setting up last night in the rain.

It's off to Salida later this morning. Oh, I spotted a 61 Bambi here last night and they are old friends from a Dead Horse rally. They are headed to Salida as well.

I really wish I could make it but I'm still short of my main entry door.

I wish I was going too. Always a great time to get together with old friends. Represent the 4CU well Richard and take lots of pictures.

Hey, we'll see you up there! We're close to being loaded. Indeed, we'd be finished now, but Maria took a fall last night and really banged herself up. Slow, careful, watch.

just a minute

I got a couple of hours of work to do in the office. The trailer is loaded and in the parking lot, and then I am off. I am a newbie, making the FCU Restoration Rally my "maiden" voyage (it was only 12 miles from my house), then a nice 2000 mile trip to California in July. Now its time to go the mountains.

We arrived yesterday afternoon. Wolf creek pass was quite the ride. We enjoyed meeting lots of new friends yesterday. The weather is great!

Looks like its going to be a great gathering as usual.

Now who is it that brings a blue tote to the big top? Something really wrong with that, on all levels.

It should have read
"POTTY CENTRAL"


Wish I could have made it

Thanks for all the great snaps Richard, and keep um coming

Michael
