2018 Buena Vista, Colorado Tag-Along
August 8 (arrival) thru August 11, 2018 (departure)
Mount Princeton RV Park
30380 Co Rd 383
Buena Vista, CO
This will be a no-host Tag-Along for those of us who wish to extend their summer vacation after the Elkhart, IN Gathering. Lou Butaud has blocked 5 sites at Mount Princeton RV Park. You may call now for reservations. No deposit will be necessary at this time as the park will call you in February, 2018 to confirm your reservation. At that time, you’ll be asked to make a deposit.
There are numerous places to visit and explore between Elkhart and Buena Vista. Some of these include:
Amana Colonies, Iowa (7 colonies plus a Passport America RV Park)
St. Louis (take a bus tour of the city and ride up the arch)Lake of the Ozarks (between St. Louis & Kansas City – lots of activities)
Kansas City (see a Kansas City Royals baseball game – Worlds of Fun Amusement Park has a good RV park)
Omaha (RV parks at the casino across the river in Council Bluffs, Iowa and at a city park beside the Missouri River in Bellevue – walk across a pedestrian bridge over the Missouri River between Nebraska and Iowa)
Denver (see a Denver Rockies baseball game)
Colorado Springs (visit the Air Force Academy and get reservations to ride the cog train up Pikes Peak)
2018 Chama, NM Tag-Along
August 12 (arrival) thru August 19, 2018 (departure)
Sky Mountain Resort RV Park
Chama, NM 87520
This will be a No Host Tag-Along. Some of us consider Chama as a second home to avoid the summer heat and will plan to arrive earlier and/or stay later. Make your reservations as soon as you can as Sky Mountain always fills up rapidly. The laid-back Chama style is a great way to relax and enjoy the cool mountain weather along with the comradely of fellow Traveling Supreme members.
Ten spots are reserved for July 21-27, 2019! We’ve received exciting reports about the many things to do & see in the area. And who doesn’t want to experience the cool summer Colorado weather! Mark the dates on your calendar, make your reservations (mention you want one of the sites blocked by Lou Butaud) and plan on attending the Buena Vista Gathering.
Mt. Princeton RV Park
30380 Co Rd 383
Buena Vista, CO 81211
Traveling Supremes hosting Coffee and Donuts at Mt Princeton RV Park.
From Mid-June to now we had eight Traveling Supremes members visit Mt Princeton RV park. Carol and I appreciate all the TS support on our “scouting trip” to the BV area. After Carol and I get the Oshkosh Air Show and our 2018 family vacation behind us, a return trip to BV is definitely in our plans for 2019. More to come later regarding 2019 plans.
The Quartzsite tagalong has been moved from the “Proposed” rallies section to the 2018 Upcoming Rallies. Jim and Tina Hoover have worked hard on this, 8 coaches are signed up, it will be a great event! Be sure to sign up soon if you are interested; click here for more information.
Buena Vista update
Picture of Hoovers and Butauds having lunch in Breckenridge at “The Lost Cajun ” restaurant. Easy day trip from BV. Drive from Buena Vista takes you through the towns of Fairplay and Alma. On the way, you go over Hoosier Pass at about 10,500 feet. Lots of shops and restaurants in Breckenridge. Trip was well worth the time.
Tomorrow, Jim and Lou will be “scouting” other RV parks in the BV area. BV continues to impress with what it has to offer.
And more (edited)….
There was some misunderstanding in the original post here, about putting member names and emails on line. That is NOT going to happen. What we should have said is to find a way for members who want it to automatically be notified of any new posts. This is already in our system, just click the “Follow” button (left side, under the menus), enter your email, and you will get the latest updates. Your name will NOT be posted or otherwise used. Don’t add your email, you won’t get updates.
Hope this clears up confusion based on my interpretation of the original request.
The Buena Vista Tagalong has seen additional participants. Recently, in addition to the Butauds, we have Gene and Sarah Fisher, Jerry and Hessie Smith, and Jim and Tim Hoover stop by. A few of the many things to see and do in this area:
The Fishers, Smiths and Butauds attended a local theater production of “Madams of Central Colorado” on Saturday, July 8. This play recounts a bawdy side of BV history. It is based on factual events from the mid to late 1800s and early 1900s. The production is performed in the old Chaffee County Courthouse, which also serves as a museum. Performances are done 5 or 6 times each summer.
A nice drive took us to the Continental Divide. Water that drains on the east side flows to the Atlantic, and on the west side to the Pacific. Pizza in Leadville, CO (above 10,000ft. elevation), and whitewater rafting. So much to do!
We are experimenting with a “For Sale” section. It has been added to our main menu. There are certain rules to follow, be sure to get approval from a TS Officer before sending For Sale info to John Laninga.
BV Tagalong update
From Lou Butaud: First picture is of Fishers, Smiths and Butauds doing what we do best – eating. Picture was taken at Shallots which is an excellent restaurant in Salida introduced to us by John and Romola Laninga. Second picture is birthday time for Chris and Hessie at Shallots. Yum! Cake!
The Laningas left last week to meet other obligations, John Brandon left a few days ago, but the Smiths (Jerry and Hessie) joined us. We enjoyed the Fourth festivities in Buena Vista, where we positioned ourselves near the Grace Church. The Smiths and Butauds attended the patriotic concert following the parade, held in the Grace Church. Also on display were quilts made by members of the Grace Church in honor of veterans. The “quilters” of BV have now made and donated about 1,000 quilts to veterans.
