Thanks for the Rally Ad!

Hi Janet,

Thanks for the rally graphic. It's great and your skills are amazing! I love the way you blended the reflection of the Airstream and Gram Parson's partial profile on the face of the guitar.

Danielle and I are looking forward to a great weekend and hope to see some other Airstreams at the event.

Thumbs up Florida newbies confirmed for 18th Annual Gram Parsons Guitar Pull and Tribute Festiv

My wife and I are going to this festival based on this thread. We are new to RV's and to Airstream, so this is going to be our first big trip. We look forward to meeting other Airstreamers and good folks of all types on this odyssey, and at this festival!

Although it is not clear from the concert site, the organizer confirmed to me that $30 is the price for camping for the entire festival, not per night.

Looking forward to meeting you there, or elsewhere on the road!

Hey, that's great news - glad to hear you're going to Waycross. Danielle and I are really looking forward to the festival and hope other Airstreamers will join the festivities. Right now it's a rally of two but hey, wherever two Airstreams are together to have fun it's a rally in my opinion.

We're looking at our schedule and plan to arrive a day early. I'm going to confirm that with the event organizer but I seem to recall he said we can arrive on Thursday. I'll double-check and post again on the subject.

Yes, the $30 fee is for the entire event... not per night.

Glad to see all the interest in this event. Alas, I cannot rally as an Air Streamer as my trailer is now permanently located on the West Coast. My wife and I have attended this event a few times as daytrippers and really enjoy it. The folks there are very friendly and it is very popular with the locals who appreciate a variety of good music.

Mostly leaning toward Americana there are so many acts that everyone will find a new favorite. They recruit mostly in the Georgia and Carolinas and have much talent to draw on. The lesser known acts occupy the side stage during the setups for the main stage but I've found that several of them are truly undiscovered gems. While some try to work a GP tune into their respective repertoires, and the main act always has some linkage to Gram, the whole event is really just geared to having a good time and relaxing to the music. If nothing else, you'll gain an appreciation of the Southern environs from which Gram sprung and the inspiration for tunes like Hickory Wind.

The camping is somewhat limited but there are Electric hookups to help stave off the heat when you need a break. Mostly its a fairground atmosphere so not a whole lot of shade to be had. One of the simple joys of being there is the freedom afforded by this event as compared to the larger more regulated music festivals. Coolers are welcome and while there are vendors, there are no restrictions on what you bring in yourself.

If you've never been to a musical event in the country in Georgia, you are in for a treat. Its a lifestyle that everyone should get a taste of sooner or later. Being there 24x3 should be a blast for all campers as the party really never ends. Again, happy to see that a critical mass is developing and someday, there may be old timers calling these the good old days! As for my wife and I, we'll have to see if we can sneak into the camp area amid the silver twinkies in our RoadTrek B van unnoticed... but we are still Airstreamers at heart.

Hi Tomzstream

Good to hear your comments... you've described exactly what we're hoping to experience!

Don't just stop by - we should plan to spend some time together. Air Forums rallies are open to anyone... regardless of whether you have an Airstream (you do) or just want to experience a good time at a fun location or event.

Danielle and I would enjoy talking Class B travel techniques as we have a 1998 Airstream B190.

If you're interested in parking near each other (I realize it's not a huge place) let us know where to meet in town and we'll try to go in together. Others attending may want to do the same.

Thanks

If you have never camped at a music festival….

#1 The entertainment isn't just on stage. Save time for exploring the campsites at night. It's cool to get up close to the music jams. ( at least Bluegrass festivals are like that )

#2 Live Jams rank higher than folks blasting stereos. If you have to hear your favorite song , keep it soft, or when no one is jamming.

#3 The 10 o'clock quiet rule……Forget about it. Darken your camper so you can sleep late. You are not at a family campground

#4 Hold off on generators until late morning.

#5 At Jam sessions ( Bluegrass anyway ) people don't applaud much. You will look like a newbie.

#6 If you are going to drink, take it easy on Saturday night. Towing requires a clear head.

#7 If own an instrument ( and a tuner )….bring it. You might come across an open jam. It's best to be invited in, as some musicians just want to perform with their band or friends

#8 You are taking your chances eating at pot luck dinners. Some of us will only eat our on food. We have witnessed some less than sanitary practices. Food freshness can be less than good towards the end of the festival.

I don't know what this fest will be like Some of these tips might only apply to Bluegrass festivals

The fairgrounds in Waycross will open for RV parking at noon on Friday. I asked the festival organizer if it's possible to gather together outside the gate and park together. Here's the comment from the festival organizer:

"There are several large parking lots immediately across Hwy 84 from the fairgrounds. For that matter, on Friday morning before the gates open at noon, the grass area in front of the fairgrounds is huge and wide open."

If you're interested in parking near each other we can meet Friday morning and drive in together. Otherwise, the RV parking area is not that large so we should be able to get around to visit with relative ease.

Lucius

Lineup is Finalized

I noticed the musical lineup has been finalized. It's been interesting to search for videos of the bands on YouTube. Lots of good music. Hope we have good weather!

Thumbs up excited to be going to our first rally!

Thanks for the invitation to meet around 11:30 am tomorrow and go in together, but Eva and I are driving in from just north of Tampa tomorrow (Friday), and while we plan to get an early start, it's still at least a 6-hour drive. Consequently, and speaking conservatively, we may be arriving closer to 5-6 pm.

Still, we look forward to meeting any and all Airstreamers at our first concert/rally!

PS - we loved the graphic at the top of this post. What talent!

fotoman1527,

We saved a spot for your trailer if you want it. Right now (Friday, mid afternoon) the field is wide open but there are limited places near the power poles. We saved a spot for you if you want it. Don't feel obligated but if you want to be next door to us we are the Airstream with 16771 (very faded) WBCCI numbers. As of now I think we are the only Airstream here. There is a small Class C motorhome adjacent to the pole too but there's is plenty of room for you too. We're about halfway between the stage and the back of the field (near the end of the large metal building)

I haven't heard anything from Tomzstream recently. I suspect Tomzstream will be here based on earlier comments. We haven't walked around the entire area yet - maybe we'll see them soon.

It was a rally of three rigs (six people) and we had a great time! We had two Airstreams and a class C in our group.

The GPGP and Tribute Festival is a down-home, good-time event. The fairgrounds is huge relative to the several hundred attendees and the associated tents, RVs, misc vehicles, chairs spread out here and there, smattering of vendors, and food stands. That is... there is plenty of room for everyone.

This will be on our list of possible outings for 2016 as well as the Swamp Town Get Down held in the spring at the fairgrounds. Check them out at
