I am really impressed at the support everybody is giving this - I think this will really help us with the powers to be......

I know I've been supportive of a unit with southwest in the name, but that decal could sway me - that is soooo cool.

I think this is really great!

I really like the decal and what Brad added to it makes it perfect. I love the Four Corners name also.

Let's see what your friends can offer, Lew. Pocket tee-shirts would be a good place to start. Given the shape of the decal, it might be best to screen the whole decal on the back of the tee-shirt with the Four Corners Unit block repeated on the right breast.

I'll have my wife model this year's RMVR tee shirt and provide a picture as a sample.

I'm almost done redoing the decal in a cleaned up version with Adobe Illustrator. Need a few more days to get it complete. Then we'll have something we can print onto a shirt. Hold yer horses.

Four Corner Petroglyphs

Earlier today I was perusing some old texts in the Western History Department at the Denver Public Library about ancient travel in the Four Corners area and came across these startling petroglyphs:



I'm no ethnographer, but it seems clear to me Wally's long lost ancestors may have already traveled through this region, thus setting a strong precedent for reestablishing a Unit based on that name. What do you think??

There are now two non-traditional units that give us much to consider, the Washington DC Unit (WDCU) and the Heart of Texas Camping Unit (HOTCU).
There are many more than this. But, like the inability to see the difference between bylaws and policies, it illustrates that a first step should be to find out what is really going on. Otherwise you tend to step in it.

What I see in this thread is folks who haven't even read, or have forgotten, previous posts in this same thread. The term is "due dilligence" and one shouldn't start lambasting others without it, IMHO

Just got back from a beat the heat weekend in Flagstaff...so I'm catching up on my forum reading... a couple of points...

I second the Four Corners informal name motion made a few posts ago..

Brad, Nice work on the logo it looks like one of those 'old school' travel stickers from the 60's very retro and very cool. This group has talent!

Ken, thanks for the head count update. What's the time line for response on your letter sent a couple of weeks ago?

I just took my Airstream back to storage a couple of hours ago and I already miss her I'm ready to go camping!

New Meaning for the Great Kivas,

Thanks to Fred's "research," we are much closer to understanding the significance of the Great Kivas at Aztec Ruins and Chaco Canyon. We can now speculate that these were ancient rally sites and the Anasazi Airtsreamers would park "tail in" around the Kivas. At Aztec, there would have been a small anteroom at the rear of each Airstream. The anteroom afforded a view of ceremonies below and a ladder descending to the floor of the Kiva. You can see these laddrs in the background of the attached picture.

Yes, and in modern (RV-age) English, we also have a different name for the Sipapu (and a somewhat different use, too).

I'm not sure it was the Anasazi. Believe it to be the NavaHopi. Either way, they have disappeared. Copyright laws have been around along time.

Perhaps the tomb robbers got them yesterday? Anyway, here they are again for those interested in travel of the ancients:





Looks like they reappeared below, too. Maybe they require a daily upload? Or are the Spirits angry?

I'm not for certain either. Two teardrops in a compromising position? A segmented ladybug? Those ancients had a way of expressing themselves.

Looks like two Base Camps to me! Or a Base Camp & a Torpedo...or a push-me-pull me.

OK, here's the banner, flag, decal, T shirt art - whatever you want to call it. I'm still wrestling with the pink color and will try different ones tomorrow. It's past my bedtime and I can't see straight. This is a low res representation. Original will reproduce just fine. The yellow's brighter also.

Nice job Brad! I know what you mean about the pink. To be honest, I am starting to like the pink a little more every time I see it. BTW, I made $80+ at the BJ table tonight

I think it's pretty neat, too! The only thing I'd change is that green hogan. That's a flavor that I've never experienced a hogan in.

I Love It...

Did I mention that I am a third generation New Mexican whose Great-Grandfather homesteaded in the Four Corners in the late 1800s. My Grandmother and Mother were both born in Aztec, which figures prominently in our decal.

Thanks for being so creative. If we can continue to harness this kind of creative energy, this unit is going to be fun! And fun is what it is all about.

Thanks Mucho,

Ken

The Arizona RoundUp newsletter for the Arizona Unit just came out and in it is a membership renewal form for 2007. It mentions to get your application in by November 1st in order to get your name in the local unit and Int'l membership directories. The reason I bring this up is to inquire about a timeline for the new unit. What is the timetable for this new unit forming? Does having all of this completed by Nov. 1st sound reasonable? If this is to happen, I sure would like to see it in the annual membership directory. Is there anything I can contribute to assist in this endeavor to meet this date?
