Safety reminder

Just a safety reminder to check your various alarms to make sure they function and batteries replaced if necessary. This past week here in Nashville at the KOA on Music City Drive a couple died in their camper due to carbon monoxide poisoning. The news reports didn't say anything about alarms but because this is probably the first outing of the year for most of us I thought I would mention it as another thing to check for a safe outing and season. The reports did say one of the stove top burners was on, the police though accidental, but if not there is danger in using a burner as a heat source.
We're all packed and hooked up for an early, but cold, start. It is suppose to be 20F at 6AM tomorrow morning. One night at Gatlinburg and on to Lake Wateree on Thu for a great time. Looking forward to it.
GreggH

And yes, we're having some of it as I type this...

Oh yes John, there is indeed a prize awaiting you at the rally. As a heads up, sharpen your skinnin' knife.

... they no longer lock the gates. BUT, Once you leave the interstate, the 10 miles through the country to the park are dark and full of deer. And yes, we will be up and waiting for you.

Are you coming Thursday or Friday??

As fun as this thread is, can't you just imagine how fun the actual rally will be!!??

Everyone:: please travel safe, and get there safe and sound. We have a lot of good stuff planned and want everyone there to enjoy it.

Don't forget your chair, flashlight, a tent if you have one, and above all, BRING YOUR SMILE, you're gonna need it.

Time to go

I am headed to the Park this morning to get a jump on things. I am so looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Please travel safe.

There is no wifi there so I will have very limited means to check in.

See you there.


John

We would have been pulling in there today.

Y'all have a wonderful, wonderful time.

I'll be thinking of you, and Doug will be there in spirit, with his Jameson & Ginger.

Hope to see you next year.

XO Maggie

regrettably, it looks like we're joining the ranks of the missing from Alumalina this weekend.

we have site 15 reserved for 4 nites, Thursday through Sunday, so if anyone needs / wants it, reach out to us via email?

otherwise, I expect to be cancelling that reservation later today.

best,

What is WITH this abominably cold weather! Pulled SilverLeaf out of her shed to "load out" and de-winterize. Yeah, well, gotta leave the furnace on tonight as it's supposed to get down to 28 degrees. Oh, and the basset girls KNOW we are going somewhere tomorrow as they saw the dog food getting packed. See you early birds tomorrow afternoon! (And, Maggie, you KNOW all of your Alumalina family are thinking about you and we know you're with us in spirit!) Barry

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend of fun & fellowship and safe travels. I hate we can't make it this time around, but I'm keeping an eye open for any fall dates that are announced. Maybe we'll be road-ready by then. See you down the road....
