14th Blanco Airstream Christmas Rally
 
Yes, we are on for another great celebration at our favorite Blanco State Park. The dates are Dec 8th - Dec 11th.
More details about our non-rally Rally as we get closer.
Last year we had a successful fundraiser for the Park to help with the devastating flood damage and we participated in the Blanco Christmas parade with three entries.
We do not plan on joining the parade this year, but rather would like to concentrate on creating a Christmas wonderland at the park and our campsites.
If anyone would be interested in entering their Airstream in the Blanco Parade, we would certainly support and encourage it.
Last I checked, all sites were reserved for that weekend, but there have ALWAYS been cancellation just prior to the weekend. So please keep checking.

Hi Stan,
Would love to see your Landyacht
You have to check with the state Park reservation system. Every year, we have a lot of empty sites for reasons unknown. I suspect that some folks make reservations and do not cancel them in time.
Since I will be there by Wednesday, dec 7th, I could check for anyone at the park, if a short notice solution works for you.
Send me PM with your contact info and I will see what I can do in the order i receive the pm's.

email me at shegener@cedareater.com or call my cell at 830-377-1358 I will contact the state park later this week! Thanks

Stan

Hello out there !
 
:):wally: Peter and I are so ready for a vacation and our favorite camping trip of the year, The Blanco Christmas Rally!, I am some what shocked to see so few post on this thread, hey Campers are you out there?
Actually this has been a year of ups and downs, we lost 2 of our very BEST Happy Campers this year as you may or may not know, but we lost Dennis Waterman and our beloved Jim also known as Whitsend.
I was thinking we could do something special to honor them with our theme being " A White Christmas"
We can see how many White Lights we can string up in the park. I would like to be able to see Camp Blanco from the Space Station or maybe even Heaven. I know we can do it. Just bring all the white lights you can and we will wrap them around everything we can find! Rodney will be back camping with us this year and he plans to do something special with his Lazer show on Saturday evening after Pot Luck.
It's been a crazy year, lets end it out right together
Is anyone thinking about putting their Airstream in the Parade? There is still time to sign up and it is Free to do so. OR maybe you are more like us and are just looking forward to a laid back camp out with Great Friends in a perfect location I know I am.:o

bwoodtx 11-05-2016 06:25 PM

The Wood's are in. We are looking forward to it! Won't be the same without Dennis and my best bud Jim Whitworth. Denniis introduced me to Jim Whitworth at this rally 5 years ago and we became fast friends.

If you are watching, my friend, I miss you and often think of you.

Silvertherapy 11-06-2016 10:09 AM

The Hill's are in, looking forward to it!
Will start collecting white lights

Still full...

I tried to tow into the Blanco S.P. and found that it's almost impossible to turn-around to get back out. There's few places it can be done, and I only have a 22' AS. I cannot imagine how longer trailers do it, and there's no turnaround at the end of the road either.

Cannonball 11-18-2016 08:41 AM

Cathy & David Willis are "in", and I believe Kevin & Melissa Katz are also in. We have reservations, but if anything changes, I will post that info.

Boxite: if you tow down the road that parallels the river, you will have turn-around issues. If you stay to the left in the campground area you will have no issues. Both sections are a loop.
