2006? Whose finished with 2005?

We sneaked away for two days at Port Townsend this weekend. The campground was mostly empty, the views incredible and the sunrise spectacular! A bald eagle rested on the sandbar right in front of us but the camera was in the truck.

No 2006 Homecoming...

Might want to make a differnet plan for May ~

Not sure of our plans for 2006 yet...except the International Rally in Salem, OR and the RMVAC Rally (somewhere yet to be determined) and a few DenCO Unit Rallies. I'm really looking forward to some casual outings with friends this next summer...after 2005's rally schedule (70 nights, 6000 miles May-Oct, mostly by myself while working every minute between outings), I'm really looking forward to a more low-key travel schedule (with Mr. InsideOut) for 2006....either that or full-time retirement!

I'm with you! We're off this weekend to Rhode Island! One more trip planned after this. (if the snows not too deep)

My wife and I returned home at the beginning of the month, after spending June and September at Yellowstone's Edge RV Park, which is 20 miles south of Livingston, MT. During August, we spent some time in Missoula, MT, then went up to Libby, MT and into British Columbia, staying at Castlegar, BC along the upper Columbia River, and then on to Lake Louise and Banff.

Sometime in the early spring, I'll probably be going to Jackson Center for some additional repair work on our trailer (does that count as part of our plans for 2006?) then in June we'll be heading out to Montana and the northwest for the remainder of the summer.

We already have our reservations again for the months of July and September at Yellowstone's Edge, but we don't have any firm plans for August yet. Two summers ago we went onto Vancouver Island during August, which was fantastic, and we just might do the same again this coming year.

If anyone is heading toward Yellowstone Country this coming year, stop by Yellowstone Edge RV Park and say "Hello".

John

Light at the end of the tunnel

Looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel that might not be a train , and I will most likely be finishing my PhD in mid March . If all goes as hoped I will have the last part of March and the better part of April for travel. Starting from middle Tn, I am thinking about heading down the Natchez Trace parkway, over to Padre Island sea shore, maybe hit the Alamo. Then on to Big Bend NP, Gudalupe NP, white sands, Roswell, and over to Silver City.

Anybody familar with any of these areas is more than welcome to chime in on the details and things to see, I would greatly apreciate that sort of information ahead of time.

flyfisher -
Looks like we may be off to Yellowstone in September. If so, we'll be sure to look you up. Be great to meet up with the other 'flyfisher' on the forums.Let's keep checking our schedules and who knows what may happen.

Flyfshr-Sorry for the late reply

Flyfshr, sorry I am so tardy in getting back with you on the N. or S. Arizona question.

Most likely will be going the N. Arizona route. Got a cousin with a new baby up that way. Hear the scenery is awesome too! Went thru Monument Valley back in March and want to see it all again. Four corners was a bit of a let down, but worth seeing once at least, IMO. Kids loving from foot to foot and being in different states. Anything for a laugh huh?

Are still considering going to Carlsbad in S. NM for New Years but the weather has been so nuts that it makes it tougher to plan too far out ( wifey don't like it cold!). They are supposed to get 3+ inches of snow tonight!!! They'll be talking about it for years if it happens....!

Anyway, to all that out on the roads - be safe!!!

We had a neighbor killed in a head on accident not 3/4 mile from the house. They were getting the mail at the PO and some drunk hit him head on. Isn't there some saying about a 5 mile radius around your house is the statisically most dangerous area to drive in?? Sigh.

Drinking and driving DO NOT MIX! Poor family!

Regardless, be SAFE out there!

Ciao

Axel

David,

Is your last photo of the Cottonwood Campground? I am planning on being there the last part of March.

Sometime around the first week of January I start my Airstream adventure. I'll escape NE Ohio, and head to Cottonwood, AZ. Pick up my Ambassador there, after it spent the summer being mechanically reconditioned. Then head to Sacramento, CA for 4 months or so. Then take her back to Ohio in May when the snow is gone.

How I envy all of you, your plans to travel. I plan to work and hope to get to the lake on week-ends. I know I could go more often if I could just teach myself to back a trailer. My husband works out of town a lot, so if he's not here the trailer doesn't get out of the yard. Sitting in your Argosy out by the side of the house isn't quite as much fun as going to Yellowstone.

Juel,
Hook it up and take it to a parking lot with some cones and practice! It is not that hard to back up a trailer. My 5'-2" wife jockeys our 31' around like a pro. On one that big it does help to have spotter, but it can be done without. The only way you are going to be comfortable with it is to practice.

FWIW the technique I recommend for backing is to put your hand at the bottom of the wheel, if you want the trailer back end to move left, you move your hand to the left, and rear right, move had right. Take it slow and make small corrections and don't be afraid to pull forward straighten out and try again. We all had to learn sometime First time I ever drove a big rig, the driver let me try to back in and I got about as far sideways as possible with a 45' trailer

Aaron

Good topic !

We will definitely attend the Region 1 rally in August (will be playing guitar at the campfire) and whatever other New England rallies we can squeeze into our schedule.

Possibly a trip to Florida (Orlando)

If all goes well we also hope to purchase property in Arizona (Tucson area) so our Airstream will have a new home.
