Absolutely come on

Beetlebob, every site is allowed 2 vehicles and a camping device. That is the "official" rule. The unspoken rule there is " no limit", meaning they don't have a hard and fast stance on multiple vehicles on a site. I have MANY times seen MANY cars/trucks on a site, no worries. The park welcomes "visitors" and so do we. Come on, bring a tent if you have one, but not necessary if you can contort enough to sleep in the car. No one will make you leave.

They may frown on 2 trailers on 1 site though.

The park staff is very friendly and helpful, and very tolerant. They are glad we are coming and will make sure everyone is happy.

John

Lonewolf1997, Region 3 Rally you inquired about is the WBCCI rally 4/30/14 to5/4/14 at the W.N.C. Ag. Center near Ashville. I think it's actually in Fletcher, N.C. Went to first Region 3 rally at Myrtle Beach in 2012. There were 331 Airstreams there, about 70% trailers as I recall. Never seen so many silver cans in one place. It was at Ocean Lakes, strictly commercial park, nothing like the state parks with plenty room and shade etc. Not to mention about $60 a night. Ken

John, I counted it three times and still come up with 50. Looks like a sold out event ! Gone need humongus pot for the Possum bog for that many folks. My grand paw use to cook cracklins out doors in a big ole black pot when I was a kid. Seem like it was about 10 or 12 gallon size. We'll have to enlighten our northern guest what cracklins are, southern crackling corn bread and a few chittlins (course that's another menu) have to explain that to. Ken

Never made them myself, just been on the consuming end. Barbara say's I'm like a vacuum cleaner when it comes to food. I saw a detailed account on Google on how to make them, after you get the hair singed off and not burn the house down you got it whupped. Maybe that's why my grand paw cooked them out side. Ken

Alumalina Map Update 12-14-2013

I've been out of town a few days so this is the first chance I've had to update the map showing the full park and current status. Hopefully a few of those black trailers will turn silver over the next few weeks as more Airstreamers fess up.

Nope, John....I don't think your usual pot for possum bog will do it this year.

I have seen big cast iron kettles, which can cook on a tripod over fire or on a frame over propane. Maybe one of your local resources will have one you can borrow.

Then, again, there will be so many people bringing sides that the bog will go farther.

Got about 6" of snow on the ground here this morning. The kiddies will love it.

Wow John sure knows how to set the stage for a great party. I was just reading a thread about how to get the membership up for the wbcci. I think the answer is to put John in charge.

Thanks for working on the updated map. Now I need to figure out how to open it. I keep getting the previous version when I click the link.

Alumalina 2014 Map Update 12-14-2013

Jonathan,

I checked the links out and they seem to be working. Try this direct link:

Alumalina Spring 2014 Map - Lake Wateree Campground Map showing Alumalina Reservations Photo Gallery

Unfortunately there are sometimes "ghosts" from the past that reappear with these Airforums links when they are updated. Let me know if this doesn't work.

Thanks John. If all goes good will be ordering our new truck to pull the AS.( when we get it). Looking at the 31 Classic. Might be the only person using a M2/106 custom built Freightliner to pull an AS out there.Sould make a good camper untill we can afford to buy the AS.

Thanks for the link. I think I was getting the ghosting image. Sometimes the switch from app to web gets confusing for my tablet (and for me). Really appreciate your help and the hard work to put the map together.
