How about a Fall trip (September, October) and swing a bit West?
Miss the Spring water at Alvord and the Summer heat at Ivanpah.
Canadian Thanksgiving is always good at Alvord. (ABE)

Alberta
Alvord (Fields, Oregon)
Ivanpah (Primm, Nevada)
Galveston, Texas

Alvord is a 3 day drive for me now. I would be more into a weekend on the gulf coast.

Bobby, you will just have to fly to Boise or Bend.
We'll hook you up with transportation to Alvord and all the kite, buggy and camping gear you need.

On the other hand, Dieter can take a small but worthwhile detour on his road trip.

Now, about that Gulf Coast weekend? When are best times?
