Alumalina, a Carolina Airstream Gathering

The Fall Edition October 12-14
Tom Johnson Camping Center Marion,NC

Ok folks, here it is, the fall rendezvous. For those of you who missed the inaugural gathering back in March, here is your chance to get in on the fun. Come hang out with other like minded folks who share the same Airstream passion. And while you're at it, enjoy the fall colors of the mountains of North Carolina. As always, there are only 3 rules:
1. be happy...
2. have fun...
3. share the love...

Marion, NC is just off I-40 in the foot hills of the NC mountains. It is in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mt. Mitchell, highest point east of the Mississippi. A wonderful area for fall leaf color.

Tom Johnson Camping Center is one of the largest RV dealerships in the southeast ( nope, no airstreams!) They have a very nice camping facility beside their service center.

Paved roads with paved, level full hook up sites. The sites are all identical. Easy, side by side back ins with plenty of nice grass in between. They are all 50A so you will need an adapter for 30A. No trees, no tables, no shelters, no mud. All open, all in a row, very good rally style parking. $30per night unless I can negotiate a rally rate.

Should be a great place for a rally, and of course the Blue Ridge mountains are right there.

And a bonus

The North and South Carolina Units of the WBCCI are holding their annual joint State Rally at the Palmetto Cove Rally Park on October 17-21. Usually around 50 rigs show up. "The Cove" was originally an Airstream only park built by the SC Unit. Open now to all brands. It is located just off SC highway 11 in the SC mountains. (yes, we have some too!!) $22 per night full hook up. There would be a rally fee.

Could be an opportunity to roll from one rally to another, and check out a club rally. You do not have to be a member. Just a thought. Susan and I hope to be there.

So...

Mark you calender, make your plans, bring a friend. Everyone is welcome. Remember, everyone pays their own way, no fees, just your parking. It's all about hanging out, having fun with like minded folks.


John and Susan

Ohhh, too bad! We'll be in Louisiana by then.

Have a great time and we'll hopefully see you in March.

Heck Maggie, we'll sure miss you & Doug. Wish it could work out. The Marion location is a nice spot, especially in the fall.

We will most very likely be back in Charlotte next March, same place, close to the same time. Got to check a couple dates. Go ahead and pencil us in.

And tell Doug that if he's not coming to the fall edition, well I guess I'll just have to get my own bottle of Jameson. I'll drink my part and his.

On the calendar for the third weekend in March.

Doug says he'll match you shot-for-shot of Jameson in the spring.

See y'all then.

Ha!!

If its cold in October, try a hot whiskey with that Jameson.

1 generous shot Jameson in a mug
1 sugar cube
1 lemon slice, studded with 3 whole cloves
Boiling water

This will warm you from the inside out.

Gosh, I hate to miss this. The spring event was wonderful -- even with the hail! Unfortunately, I'm out of the country until Saturday. Count me in for the next one. Barry

Oh! Brad and I were hoping to make the next aluminima but that's parents weekend at our son's college. He's a freshman going all the wy up to the UP - Michigan Tech. We planned on going to parents weekend as I was sure he would be missing us by then but the truth is, we'll probably be missing him a lot more than he will be missing us.

We'll watch for the March dates and hope we can make that one.

Have fun!

Brad and Karen Roberts

We will sure miss all of you. I know the feelling of a full plate, mine is full and running over. So much going on these days. The entire world is in over drive.

Go ahead and pencil in the March gathering. Not quite sure of the dates yet but close to the same time, same place in Charlotte. They couldn't accommodate us for the fall rally there. The Marion location is a great location though.

Thanks for chiming in. Safe travels.

John

Sorry to miss

John and Susan
All our Alumalina Friends:

We sure hate to miss this but have already arranged our week long vacation in Fredericksburg, VA (KOA) starting that weekend.

We had such a good time in Charlotte. Will plan to be there in March if possible.
