Good luck to me and you both on that...after nearly 33 years with the same company, I can't choose vacation till the first of the year, so I didn't make reservations. I managed to get this time off...but we've been calling since the first of the year numerous times and we are also on the waiting list. Had no idea this get-together would be so popular...I just wanted to go after briefly meeting and talking to Sandlapper at the Fall get-together. Unless someone cancels and it gets down to us, not sure if we'll make it!

Thanks, G

Hey thanks, my first project took a little while because what started out just as cleaning up an old camper turned into building a whole new camper.

Can't wait to see it.

Online reservations are done thru Reserve America where you can sign up for a notification if a site becomes available. You will see it on the park website. Not sure how it works or if it is reliable, I have always called directly to the park at 803.482.6401. They are very nice and helpful, not sure if they have a procedure for a waiting list.

If you can, keep checking their availabilities via their website several times a day. We have gotten prime sites there just days before busy holiday weekends when it was already full.

Keeping the fingers crossed for you and all the others on the waiting list. Sad but true, openings usually occur as the dates get closer. Lets just hope the cancellations are from the few SOB that are on the map, not our AS buds.

Thanks for the help. I have put a reservation request in with the South Carolina Parks website. They have a pretty neat feature called "availability notification" where they will send you an email if a site becomes available for the time period that you have requested. This may obviously go out to more than one email address, so whoever contacts the park first gets the reservation. Fair enough.

I have been following this thread for a while and as time passed I said to myself that this looks like a great rally to attend. Well as with lots of things everything has to start someplace and it usually starts small. Well last year I packed my car and went to the Springfest Music Festival at the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. I checked the schedule and what do you know, Springfest is the weekend before the Airstream Sandlapper rally. I casually mentioned it to my wife, still working as a teacher, and she did not blow a gasket, so that is when I thought that I might try and make a reservation to attend, great timing, just as the campground was filling up.
I am confident that something will turn up. If not I will just leave the Stream home and take my tent.

Looking forward to the possum bog and all the other stuff.

Dan

It would be good to see you and your sweet wife, Dan.

This is a great group and a great rally.

You will enjoy yourselves, I guarantee it.

We are near Ruston, LA, going to have a visit this afternoon with some local Streamers.......and, later.....going to bake the first loaf of this new recipe in the outdoor DO with charcoal.

I am anticipating a bit of tweaking of charcoal quantities, to achieve the same results I have been getting using the DO inside my oven at home.

Cross your fingers, and I'll report back.

For those of you wondering where I have been, I had to wait until after January 1st to request the vacation time off for the rally. Today I called to reserve a spot, but the campground is (over) booked for the weekend.

Well, yes, we've been wondering where you've been!

If you can't get a spot, you and Marie hop in the truck and come over as day-trippers.

Wouldn't be Alumalina for us without you two.

Hope to see you in March.

If we do that, we'll take Marie's Focus. 38 mpg vs. 13 mpg...
