Saw an older (white) Alpine with green stripes near Two-Ribbons Trail in western Yellowstone NP. We were the crazies waving from the field.

Speaking of Yellowstone, who's this, staying at Grizzly RV with us? Nice khaki-colored Jeep, too.

Seems this tread is at work!

Yesterday, I missed Jay and Jean, when they dropped by Grizzly RV to say hello. They are the owners of the 2000 Alpine seen in YNP. (The park was calling us.)

Just today I met Mike and Donna, owners of the 2005 38'er pictured above. They are very nice folks. We look forward to seeing them down the road again. Since they are from SoCal (and West Yellowstone, where they have a restaurant), we'll likely do just that.

Appears both are members of this forum, just proving this is The Place.

Yesterday, June 11, saw the rear of a Black/Silver Alpine At Welcome RV Camp, thats I-80, Exit 343, Welcome, Starr Valley NV just west of Wells NV.

Today, June 12, saw Alpine 2004? towing an enclosed trailer, I-80, mile post 132 and another Alpine towing a trailer with another brand following around Lovelock, NV.

Take pride, we passed lots of Motor Homes headed east today, maybe there heading to Yellowstone Park to see you.

From the starter of something good!

Yet another Alpine at Yellowstone National Park. I wasn't quite quick enough with the camera, but this one was seen above Norris Campground, heading toward Canyon Village. It's hard to tell, but it's champagne and burgundy.

Just met Jim from Florida, here at Lakeside RV Campground in Provo, Utah. He has an immaculate '04 FDTS with very low miles. He picked it up from a bank repo sale about a year ago.

Interesting to see my twin, fraternal maybe, kitchen window and sink layout are different and his slide boxes have stripes. Oh, and he has that darn Vansco system (LOL). Says he shopped all over for an Alpine specifically after thoroughly researching everything available. He's never had a lick of trouble with it. He carries around a Harley on a great looking hoist. Reminds me of a certain forum member here.

Told him about the forum, said he'd heard of us and was going to join.

Keep on rolling.......

Last week saw one at Tall Chief in Fall City, WA - this week one at O'Sullivan's RV Resort in Othello, WA. Also saw one coming over Snoqualmie Pass on Monday - we were headed east, they were coming west. Nice thing about being in the PNW is that we get to see an Alpine once in a while.

Alpine's on the Go!

Jun 22, Meet Mark at the Sparks Marina RV Resort (Thanks Gail & John Stacy for this recommend, been 3 times) he is from California, 2004, 38', Silver Gray, No Alpine Coach logos anywhere and two Kingdomes, one front and the other on the rear. Which makes this Alpine easy to identify.

Jun 24, this AM, Saw a 2004, 40? with red and brown, fueling up at the FlyingJ in Wells, NV I-80.

Keep those Alpines down the road!!!!!

You are welcome, Dan! We had a reservation there early this month to attend our grandson's high school graduation. Plans changed and we ended up staying out in Fernley, where he lives, instead. We really like Sparks Marina RV, as well as the manmade lake nearby. They have a wonderful fenced beach area for dogs.

Wish we were on the road so we could be spotting other Alpines, too!

Happy travels to all!

I had an Alpine sighting in the neighborhood yesterday, but it was not a good one. My wife noticed a green one parked on the street a few doors down from our house. Turned out that we don't have a neighbor with a new Alpine Coach, but a neighbor who repossesses RV's. Someone just lost theirs to the finance company.

If it was somebody on this forum, we are sorry to hear about your situation.

It's almost an Alpine Coach meeting... :)

We are at Oasis in Las Vegas. Across the road from us is our twin, although it looks 10x better than ours. I'm hoping I can chalk it up to them having just a few miles (compared to my 77,000) on theirs. I haven't met them yet, but will try to soon.

My wife went for a run and said there was a burgundy in the same model as ours down the road.

So, 3 Alpines in one park. Come join us!

GT

P.S. Is it considered bad form to "trade" water heater covers with your neighbor?
