Alumalina

Thank you everyone for your southern hospitality. We had such a wonderful time.
John and Susan thank you for all your efforts to make this an incredible rally. We are visiting friends in Albermarle then onto Asheville and beyond.

Almost home. This scene of our final night, tonight, in our Bambi is VERY pretty (Croton-on-Hudson), but oh, what's the song? Something about being happy if I could be in Carolina in the morning? What a time you Carolinians gave us. We will be forever grateful, and we are thinking of that 70-degree weather on Saturday!

"Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning..."

Glad everyone is safe and sound.

We are in a ho-hum, so-so PA csmpground east of Paducah, KY.

Home tomorrow, will have to drop some antifreeze into our tanks as night temperatures will be in the teens.

Thanks everyone...

for all the kind words. Susan and I had a BLAST!!!!. Yep, we put some time and energy into planning things but what really made the rally great were the people who came. WOW!! 34 rigs with the greatest folks on the planet.

Thanks everyone for chipping in to help. The cooks, the trash crew, and the pot scrubbers; all that brought door prizes; sound man, music man, bird lady; table movers, bar tenders, service techs. Cakes, pies, and Krispy Kremes; bacon, eggs, and grits. And of course THOR, lighting up the night.

Short, long, old, and new trailers. Flags flying in the breeze.

NOW, pat yourself on the back for having the good sense to be there, to be a part of this great event. Wouldn't have been a rally without you.

Looking ahead to next year, very likely near same time, same place. Mark it down.


John & Susan

Alumalina a beginning or an end?

To all of you Airstreamers at the rally. . . There were so many happy, smiling faces I thought maybe I'd had a wreck and passed on through to Paradise! What a nice group of people!

After deciding to purchase the 25' Airstream in Florida in mid February I had been living for the day I could finally attend my first Airstream Rally. Every day I thought of picking up my new Aluminum Earth Exploratory Vehicle (EEV) and landing it in North Carolina to see what was going on on your Planet.

Boy, it was disappointing as all hell, to get to Florida and find the trailer had a bad case of wood rot. All my dreams and plans fell apart in that instant.

Well, you know the story. . . as fate would have it we found another, better EEV the next day and after a bit we were hitched up and rolling and I was happy that I was still on target to meet up with all those unknown folks in North Carolina.

Pulling into a trailer park and seeing all that Aluminum is pretty dazzeling--somewhat blinding and awfully exciting. So many people to meet, so much to share and explore. I was not disappointed. Within moments we had made two new friends, Susan and Chuck, and boy did we have something in common. . . the same trailer and the same tales of rotted floors! What a coincidence!

Ah, then there was the friendly faces---thank you all for sharing so much.

Especially my favorite, the shrimp grits. (Did Bubba mention that dish in Forest Gump??) Fish fry, hush puppies, possum bog. . . I'll never forget it all.

Those three days were then end of our first journey in our Airstream, but the beginning of some great relationships. Thank you all for your friendship and southern hospitality.

Give us a shout if you are in SE PA, near Neark, DE
Steve & Julie

We wish we could have been at the rally. John and Susan always put on a full spread. Already looking forward to the fall Alumalina gathering.
Glad to hear you will be passing through Asheville on your trip back to RI. Hope you enjoy your stay. There are amazing places to eat here. Let me know via PM if you want suggestions.
