I may have been the culprit originally on the Billings instead of the correct Bozeman based on an email I did a week or so back . It's a thing from my past - we grew up in Southern Alberta and used to slide over the "line" to Boozeman and sometimes to Billings with a strong preference for the former for Coors beer which you could not get in Canada at that time. But now and then (and a lot back then due to the Coors thing - hey, now I know why I like silver trailers......) I get confused. Now it's due to age, not aged booze though. Sigh - life was so much simpler then. You could get loaded in either town and it didn't really matter. Now if I showed up in Billings with my Airstream in tow expecting to see a whole swack of fellow Airstreamers I'd need a Coors because they'd all be in Boozeman. Whew, glad I got that out of me.

The last time I was at the factory (Oct06) they said no more homecommings.

Coors beer, huh?! The picture below is taken from my office window...in Golden, CO. Yup, Coors is brewed at the end of my street...major production here in town. Takes up a couple of blocks...

Gosh Shari, Golden, CO could be Nirvana - or is that heaven?

I hear they are selling their waste products now for use in E85 fuels so what once went down the drain is now additional revenues.

So, if they can do that, maybe left over Airstream stuff could be used for........bird houses?

Thanks,
Barry

I loved the 2 Homecomings I went to. I was hoping they were going to be a constant in my Airstreaming. Best time ever with a rally that size. I'd pay more to go to another if that is the problem. it would be well worth the money if the next would be anything like the others were.

Rally at Shari's office??? - we could line up the Airstreams down the block and hook up at the Coor's plant to fill tanks........

Kinda like courtesy parking...

There is a nice little campground about a three blocks away, to the west. It's along Clear Creek - where the water for Coors comes from, so you could kinda say you swam in Coors! It's all in the water ~ The funny thing is...I can't stand beer! Give me a martini or tequila or better yet, a "margatini"!

BTW, the mash really s-t-i-n-k-s when the wind is coming our way - yuck! Good thing it's not all the time! FWIW, the campground is away from the stink.
