Where are you going to go in 2006?

I know the leaves are still on the trees (mostly), but earlier today I found myself starting to think about trips and destinations for 2006. THAT got me wondering where everyone else was going to be going and if I couldnt pick up some ideas that might not have occured otherwise.

So lets hear it folks, where are you going in your AS next year?

We'll be heading back to Montana and try to see everything we missed this year. Also Wyoming and the Badlands of the Dakotas.

Funny you should reply just then, I have been looking at your website, nice work!! While you are in Wyoming I highly recomend the Big Horn National Forest; great scenery, and lots of great camping (both campgrounds and boondocking), and best part is most people blaze right on through on the way to or from Yellowstone so it isnt that crowded. anyway happy travels

If things come off well, I'm hoping that a forum rally in Florida will come along right about in Jan-Feb, and I'll be happy to attend.

That's about as far as my plans are going right now...

Our plans are the Vintage Vacations Rally in Newport Beach, the WBCCI International in Salem and the Vintage Airstream Rally in Newport Beach. That probably takes care of my vacation time. Unless I can manage a Lincoln Continental Owners Club event.

At this point our plans are to camp a week in Osoyoos on the lake in the Canadian Okanagan valley in June (an annual event), tour the WA and OR coast in July, tour through BC, ID, MT in late August/early September. Already getting excited about getting out and using the trailer again. Barry

Hmmm, well I missed the Tetons this year. I have already planned a week for that.

Rodney, You are right, we did just what you said. Blazed right thru the Big Horn Mts. on the way to Yellowstone. They are a sight to see. Maybe I can take a side trip there from the Tetons.

Porky Pig, You really oughta go to the Badlands. It is a experience I will never forget. Stay at the KOA in Interior, SD. They have WiFi and are very friendly.

I will be attending the International in Salem,OR.

Plus a lot of weekend trips.

Other than that, what ever comes up. I know that there is another Troutlake Rally coming up and any other Rallies I can attend that are close.

South, then West, the NORTH!!

Trip# 1 Off from ALB to go to the Calsbad Caverns. I hear they are mind blowing when you actually see them.

Then off to Arizona. Arizona folks give me ideas please!!!!

Then to S California. Lots to see and do there. Will try to get north to Oregon and then back through Washington State and then back down through Denver back to home base in ALB.

Trip#2 Yellowstone - period.

Trip#3 Open to ideas??? Anyone got any great places that a family with 3 kids really needs to see?? Private emails are AOK by me.

Looking forward to any and all replies.

All over North and South Carolina....all year long! The favorite part of my territory is the western NC mountains around Lake Toxaway / Sapphire. So many Wal-Marts...so little time!
Follow the river up from N. Augusta SC to Murphy NC it's out of the way and all secondary roads so no speed issues.
Stop and play a little golf at Hickory Knob State park after you spend a day or two.

Well for me March is going to be my big travel month. Sherri's Cookbook Caravan will kick off, starting in Maryland and ending up all over the place, picking up members along the way. Some members have asked to do the whole caravan with me, which is way cool. I'll literally be all over the U.S., so if you're interested, drop me an email and see if I'll in your neck of the woods.

Bill, Sherri, the kids and I did the Vintage Vacations Rally in 2003, when we had our 1968 29' Streamline Empress. We had a blast. We met Tom Patterson, travel trailer guru, and I even got to meet Craig Dorsey, though he looked busier than a one-legged man at a butt kicking contest. Very nice guy.

Smile MI to SC and back again--2006

We're going south to see the Tarheel branch of the family. First stopping at Cumberland Gap National Park, Wilderness Road Campground then south to Uwharrie National Forest (its lovely and quiet) Arrowhead Campground, then to South Carolina's Huntington Beach Campground (full hookups) to explore Myrtle Beach and Charleston. Then back via Lake Allatoona. We are trying out two new campgrounds thanks to the recommendations of the forum (SC and GA).

If you have time you should hit Helen GA. www.helenga.org The Top of GA Airstream park is close to it. http://www.topofga.org/

Or plan that trip around the next SE Forum Rally. Its been at that campground twice now.



Well my 1 year restore is rolling into its 3rd year. 3's a Charm right? Its actually going together. With some luck another interior skin will be riveted in today. Now I'm into a weather problem. Time to paint and looks like fall finally arived That may put the breaks on till spring when it warms back up.

Once its together Our plan is a shake down trip to Top of GA and meet some more of the local WBCCI. Once we work out the bugs we want to go down to St George FL and spend a week at the state park. http://www.floridastateparks.org/stg...nd/default.cfm

We love St George. Thats where we had our Honeymoon. Vacation down there as often as we can afford the Beach houses. The camper being done will make our visits more frequent. We will be able to take 3-4 day weekends a couple times a year.

Our Coach is a family Heirloom. I hope to also make a trip up to near New Port News to Visit one of Chili's Brother so we can show him his dads camper restored and try and catch a visit to Falling water while up that way. http://www.pbs.org/flw/buildings/fal...lingwater.html Maybe the Biltmore on the way back and see my sister house in Charlotte, time permitting.

2007 will be West! I haven't been to CO since I was a kid. Swing through St Louis to Show the coach to Chilli's Oldest Brother.

Still early in the process. I know we will have the Moraine View Rally up in LeRoy Il. Also we might do a trip up to the Airstream Homecoming up at JC. Price of gas will have a lot to do with where we do the big vacation. We love those cool climes and the last two years had us up at Mackinac City Mi, and Sister Bay Wi for our longer summer trips.

Top of my list is Jekyll Island, Georgia, followed by St. Augustine, Florida. Maybe a few local places, like Rainbow Springs, Florida.

2006 promises many adventures. I'll be taking the trailer up into the Arizona mountains on a couple of fishing trips. Undoubtedly, will go over the Memorial Day weekend at Cyclone Lake and then off to Christmas Tree Lake for some of those native Apache Trout. Big as footballs and don't like to surface. Been thinking about a Yellowstone trip for years and it might just happen next year.

SilverToy - what part of Aizona you going through? Northern or southern route?

Jan-Feb we hope to spend a couple of weeks in the Naples, Fla, area visiting friends who winter there. Any suggestions on a campground with full service but off a major highway? We need one we can day trip from. We'll probably have a long weekend at Bennet Springs State Park in MO as soon in spring as we can have Gypsy de-winterized. After that, for a longer trip in summer. . .West (Rockies) or North (Lake Superior)? That is the big question! Next year if I can get Max to fully retire, I hope we can do the Calif-Washington coast drive. Also want to work in the Maine-Nova Scotia area soon, and can't overlook other parts of Canada. Too much we want to do, and we can't do it all this year!

We are hoping to make a couple Tin Can Tourist affairs, one in January in Cedar Key, Florida, the other in May in Michigan. We are going to try to hit the homecoming this year. A nice long trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes, MI, should be in order as well. Our favorite adventures are the ones where we flip a coin at every so often and see where we end up! Does anyone have a similar (or strange) way of determining your destination?
See everyone out there!
