Travel safe, everyone.

We camp in the Black Mountain frequently and really enjoy the area. If you're a bar-b-que fan I recommend grabbing a meal at Okie Dokie's Smokehouse in nearby Swanannoa, or if you're in the Asheville area, 12-Bones.

Thanks for all the suggestions, folks!

We stayed here a couple of years ago, going to do it again. Close to family we are visiting in Black Mountain and very nice.

Mama Gerties RV Park and Campground

The campground we are at in Big Stone Gap is new, clean and tidy with lovely and well-maintained bathrooms. It is on the Powell River, more like a big creek, which Lily got to run and play in yesterday afternoon. Happy doggie.

Jessie Lea RV Park

Going to really enjoy just being still today.


Maggie

Terry thought I should let everyone know I ordered a cake for the rally with the rally logo on it, with spring 2012. I was going to make it a surprise, so, SURPRISE!!!

We will be arriving on Thursday evening.

We are still on schedule to make it as well! We are slowly returning home (near Toronto) from a stay in Florida/Georgia/S.Carolina and just arrived today at the James Island County Park campground at Charleston.

We are here until Friday morning and as things stand, plan to head up to join in on the rally sometime on Friday.

I just checked the weather forecast for Charlotte, and it said scattered thunderstorms on Fri/Sat - of course that can change in a week - anyway it wouldn't change our plans unless the forecast gets much worse!

Looking forward to meeting some other Airforum members!

Well Brian, we all want you to stay on schedule so you can be here at least by Friday. Charleston is a great place, and JICP is super nice. Might have to tear yourself away. About 200 +/- miles.
Spring time weather here changes daily. The standard line is if you don't like the weather, just wait a day, it will change. We are hoping the forecasters miss their long range prediction and we have good weather. The prediction for the rally though is "a fine time will be had by all".

I am not 100% sure I can make it, but I will try. I hope to be pull in on Saturday morning. My wife has signed me up for some sort of race at the national whitewater center at 1130 that morning, so I wont be around all day, but I should be back at Bambi by supper. I will try to call tomorrow for reservations. Not sure if it will be just me, or the whole family. Will everyone still be there on Saturday night ?

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!

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....
