We're in - Surprisingly, there has already been some discussion amongst the "marginal members" in Houston of gathering saddles, spurs, mules, and lariats for this get together. Who knows what may happen this year.

John - Excellent job on the brochure and putting it out in plenty time for those of us still "working" to plan and put it on the calendar.

After our great "Blanco Christmas Rally" this year I can confidently say there will be several "younger" families with kids harnessed up in attendance at Glen Rose.

Thanks to the Highland Lakes Unit for breaking out the cost for daily parking and decreased cost for those that can only make it there for the weekend. Hopefully this will encourage more families to attend. Any plans for entertaining the younger Buckaroos on Friday or Saturday?

I know of several recent or about to be road worthy AS's in West Houston - might have to form a "trail ride" a la' the Houston Rodeo to get to the round up in Glen Rose.

Yea Ha - gettum up mule!

I have to credit Judy Hazen who did the brochure.

Good idea for kid's activities. I'll pass this on to the rally chairman.

I might add that we will have one night of entertainment as part of the rally. The second night will be the Bluegrass jam that occurs each week at the campground.

Well bummer. I believe I have my finals that week, and will not be able to make it.

Thumbs up Wouldn't Miss It

This will be the 4th THLU Vintage Rally I have attended. I look forward to another great opportunity to tour many wonderful vintage Airstreams, and to visit with their owners.

The open house Saturday and the flea market are open to all, no charge.

We do not occupy the whole park and therefore anyone can drop by and visit friends at no charge, however you must have a rally badge to attend any seminars, meals, entertainment, etc.

Never been there, but the campground is attractive if you want to believe what is shown on the internet.

How much is a rally badge for a day visitor?

We have not had day passes in the past vintage rallies. If you have a specific day that you could come, I would advise that you email Texas Highland Lakes Unit with your request and see what they come up with. I would wait till the schedule is posted (usually a few weeks prior to the rally) so that you know what seminars and other activities are planned.

It is not a fancy park like Montgomery, but it is a nice place to hold a rally. We have had Region rallies there and stopped on the way to rallies elsewhere. Look for gravel roads and sites and rustic buildings. Fair number of trees. There is/was a little cafe on the grounds.

Dinosaur State Park is just a couple of miles away. Some good exhibits and real dino tracks in the bed of the Paluxy River. The city of Glenrose is about 15 miles north with great shopping, theater, and restaurants.

Aerial view and map to park

This will give you an idea of the park and its surroundings.

Tres Rios Ranch View

Caution: There is a load-limited bridge on county road 312, just west of the park boundary. Light vintage trailers are OK. If you have a heavy rig, turn south off 67 at Farm to Market 200, east of the park, and approach the park from the east on CR 312.

New Seminars

We will have a seminar on cabinet and interior construction and finishing. Luther Price, a retired owner of a cabinet making shop, and myself will present. We will demo techniques such as pocket-hole face-frame construction.

I am now looking for an insurance representative in the area who can speak on insuring vintage Airstreams with agreed-value policies.

Should be nice. Don't forget the Koffee Kup in Hico, Hard 8 or Tumbleweed BBQ in Stephenville, the spectacular views from Chalk Mountain turnout/rest area off 67 (near Spur 220 from 281), and enjoy the stay in the shadow of Comanche Peak Nuclear. I'm still surprised that this area has turned into commuting territory for Fort Worth. One of the great books about Texas was written by Glen Rose resident John Graves, Goodbye to a River (about the Brazos del Dios).

With any luck the drought will lift and you all should still have decent flowers with that date!

That is all that is required except for actually showing up at the rally.

We will keep you updated on this thread and post a detail schedule as rally time approaches.

That's a great idea, Steve.

I know the 4CU has recorded seminars and workshops from their annual vintage resto rally, and from the demos I saw in person at the Texas Vintage two years ago, the information is quite valuable. If someone from THLU or any other attendee of the Texas Vintage were to record some of the seminars/workshops, I bet THLU could generate some revenue by packaging and distributing.

I definitely want to try to make it this year, will depend on work schedules for my wife and me.

I think I'll be going for the Saturday, Marcus, so if you can't go for the weekend, you're welcome to hitch a ride.
