Sorry folks, we are going to pull the plug on Alumalina. We have been non-stop for the last two months with our son's high school indoor drumline practices and competitions (they are amazing, by the way - four out of five 1st place finishes). This past weekend we were in Bowling Green and next weekend (after Alumalina) we are back to Chattanooga.

While we LOVE to be band parents, each event is a logistical nightmare, and the thought of packing again for a different venue for this weekend would be more work than pleasure. So, we have decided to stay home BUT will sleep in our AS in the driveway this weekend; we will be with you, but not there. Next time for sure!

Brad, Karen Say it ain't so! we're sure gonna miss you but we all understand your thinking and being stretched to the max. Save some energy for Springstream, be looking forward to seeing you there. You can make up by playing Wipe Out for us. John

The only thing worse than hearing me play Wipe Out would be hearing me sing. See you at Springstream!

I'm afraid it's bad news for us this weekend, also. The job's holding me hostage and I just don't see clear to get away. John, enjoy that single malt. My mouth will be watering. You guys have a great rally!

Totaly understand. I was the drumline mom for band when my son was in middle school and high school. Enjoy this time and rest when you can.

Update

As of today, this is what we have.
13 folks have made reservations. More may very well have been made but I only know of these. I expect others to show up, probably around 20. there will be room. Talked to the CG today, everything is a go.
Post #93 has the plan, what little there is. Briefly, Chicken bog Friday nite, do-nuts & coffee Sat am. Techno seminars Sat am. Lunch in there somewhere. Open house, swap-n-shop, hang out Sat pm. Fish & chips Sat late pm. Sat evening, well you know what to do on that one.
Anything you can/want to contribute will be great. Sides, deserts,bread, tea, big smile, happy face. Bring your own plate/cup/tools to the meals.
I hope to roll in sometime early afternoon Thursday. Let me know if you need anything.John

I have the goodies loaded in Bertha. Some of the stuff will be pretty specialized, other stuff anybody can use.
Tomorrow at 3 PM is the last point you can take advantage of the overlander63 delivery service.
Tomorrow will be the first trip we've taken with our "newsed" Hensley, hopefully all will go well. I'm watching carefully for Murphy, though.

Marti and I are looking forward to the rally this weekend. Have you got a final count of attendees - it looks like a pretty good crowd. Save me and Marti a t-shirt and a sticker. We love the logo and appreciate all the hard work you have done to organize this event.

Gotcha covered on the shirt and sticker. Everyone gets a sticker, they are SUPER cool. Shirts are optional but a bargain at about the price of a 12 pack. Just my $ back. They promised they would have them tomorrow.
Really don't have an accurate head count. I'm thinking about 20 rigs, maybe 40 people. Guess we will know Friday. If everyone could pitch in just a bit, we will be in great shape. We have the chicken bog for Fri. & 2 very nice boxes of restaurant grade flounder fillets for Sat.. Counting down....

Labor of Love

There has been some work involved here but it has been said that it isn't work if you love what you're doing. We have been eager for a Carolina gathering for a long time. Seemed as though no one was gonna do one, so here we are! The work will all pay off when we can stand back, look down the 2 rows of Airstreams, and say hot damn, look at that!
Susan and I sure look forward to seeing everyone.
