Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates

36 bucks! For a tent??

$20/night should be plenty, less is more realistic. It's a tent!

I'll check, too, Brenda. We'll compare notes. Hey, here's an idea, let's all stay at RR's and commute....all 30 or so of us!

Re: Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates

Barry have you or Rod found out anything about the debit card/credit card issue?

Folks, just an FYI brother-in-law rode his bike to the Red River/Taos area for a few days this past summer. I know there are a few miles difference between Sante Fe & the R-R area, but he had quite an experience when he used his debit & credit cards.

Every time he used a credit card for less than $10, there was an additional $10 surcharge added to it. any purchase over $10 had no additional charge.
When he used his debit card, there was an additional
$35-50 fee added to the purchase. The business did refund the added debit fee when that payment cleared.
I always thought if a debit card purchase went thru, it cleared right then.....go figure.

Rene Ann & I found out going to Bowling Green that a lot of places would not accept travelers checks any more due to the ease of copying & forgery.

Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates

I've been looking at my Trailer Life book & what I'm finding as far as rates for tents is about $26. This rate price is 2 yrs book is a 2006 version which means come rally time if my math is correct will then be 3 yrs old....Also, not all camp grounds listed in the book have tent sites.
Brenda, let us know what you find out.

Re: Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates

Will do.


Re: Re: Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates

Apparently when they picked the Rally site they didn't research the area cost structure. Wonder what food and gas will cost. These prices may keep a lot of people home.

Re: Re: Re: Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates

Hi, Guys;
Unfortunately, Santa Fe is expensive, but there are cheaper hotels in town, so don't give up. As far as camping goes, I can't be much help. There is a great KOA about 60 miles east of town along I-25 (near Las Vegas, NM)
that has great rates, and plenty of tent space (they hold boy scout campouts there.) The problem is-it's 60 miles east of town. If you don't mind getting up early and putting some miles on your bike, then that isn't a problem. I sincerely hope the costs don't keep you guys away. Hope to see you in July!!

Ride Safe & Sane;

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: AVA Rally 09 Rates - KOA

It's been over 20 years since I stayed at either one but the Santa Fe KOA and the one in Bernalillo (Albuquerque north) were both very nice.

I've been going to church functions @ Glorietta, NM for the last 20 years. Usually we will try to go into town at least once on the trip. Santa Fe has always seemed to be 15-20% higher than comparable prices elsewhere. Buying gas used to be atrocious--probably still is.
