Terry, by Saturday evening you looked pretty beat. You deserve a week back at work.

What a great experience for our first ever Airstream Rally!

Many thanks to John, Susan, and sons Jay & Phil for all their hard work and warm welcome. Also to Terry for bringing me the parts and for the very useful info and tips - first time I had seen Olympic Rivets in use!

We met so many great folks and I think the brief hailstorm didn't detract from the fun one bit - so glad we could stop by on our way home to Canada.

This morning (Mon) we are at "Top of Georgia" near Helen, and tomorrow we should be in Asheville where we will stop for a few days before completing the trip home to Canada.

Hope to take a look at the Biltmore Mansion - it better be all it is cracked up to be, they sure know how to charge for the tickets. Think I'll check round first and see if we can find any discount coupons! I think the full tour is up around $60 each. Still, we only live once!


Thanks again! .......... Brian & Connie.

Umm, realized that the steamed clams Saturday night were actually oysters. I'm a Yankee, they all look the same to me! Yummy little treats, they were.

We decided yesterday morning that we were too close to Edisto Beach to pass it by, so will be there today for 3-4 days before starting our winding ramble home.

Spent last night at Santee State Park, a lovely place.

If you have never been to the Carolina coast, you just gotta go, folks. We are looking forward to long walks with Lily on that full-of-shells beach, some dolphin sightings and the smell and sound of the ocean.

Stay safe, y'all, and see you next year.


Maggie

Betsy and I had an uneventful return home. Really enjoyed meeting everyone, and seeing all the permutations of airstreams. The food was just WOW! Thanks.

Looks like a great weekend. We will be looking for the fall gathering hopefully here in the Mountain section of NC. IT is a great place to be in the fall colors. Sorry we were not able to make it down to the first gathering the food sounds yummy and the fellowship sounds like it was even better.

XL works Great for me John. If I could figure out how to insert a picture, I show you the bumper. I fixed it yesterday.

I think the weather man said Denver really got a dumping of the hail, so maybe, even with a bent bumper, you were in the right place. Karma.
PM me an address, I'll send the shirts. Only have XL left, maybe 1 2XL.

Ha! I have eaten rabbit and squirrel--so there! Brunswick stew--critical ingredients.

I saw you cookin' them chickens, so know that's what they were.

Like you? Man, we LOVE you. We want you to get back to work so you can get that well deserved rest.
I'm a bit tuckered out myself. 3.5 days of non stop fun!

Hi Fellow Airstreamers,
Just wanted to let everyone know what a great time we had. A special thanks to John and Susan and the rest of family for all the planning and hard work that went into the first "Alumalina". Also to Terry for his invaluable knowledge and willingness to help so many of us out.
What a great group of people. It was a pleasure to be able to spend time with all of you.
Tom, Deborah and Winston Schnauzer

I spoke with Fantastic yesterday, and they had indeed changed a few things. I now have updated instructions for the modification I attempted with no results other than a rise in my blood pressure...

Thanks to all. Carl and I (and Chloe) had a blast, glad it worked out for our schedule. As the last ones to leave (drove off this morning) - thought we'd share what the 'strip' looked like once everyone had gone. With any luck, the attached photo will show. It was an absolutely picture perfect day yesterday (naturally), too. I have typed up the listing of names/contact info. I just want to add the forum nicknames and ensure I have all the details accurate (penmanship...ugh). Then I'll send along to all - for those who want an electronic version of the listing. Thanks to all the Leakes and everyone who put time and effort into the weekend. Nancy and Carl.
