I'm also another newbie Barrett. And I'll have lots of little questions too. Making my list! Really am looking forward to sharing with all the other folks.

Remember.....everyone was a newbie at some point

.... so don't sweat it one bit. All the veterans were in your place once.

No better place to pick brains and take notes than at a rally and no better rally than Alumalina.

There is no gauntlet to pass through, test to take, no newbie initiations or special parking. Everyone is equal, and you will be among friends.

I can assure you that there will be plenty of help available, just speak up.

We will have seminars that will hopefully answer many questions.

Glad you're coming....you will like it.

So happy to see newbies attending. It feels like yesterday that we were brand new ourselves. So many kind fellow Airstreamers reached out to us and made us feel welcome (paid it forward). Now it is our turn!

1) Will there be any sort of "tutoring demo for newbies" on things like basic maintenance (like how DO you clean out the tanks? and: What do I really need to understand about how the converter works). Hate to admit that even after more than a year of ownership, there is SO MUCH I still don't understand.
2) In the random thoughts category....Might some attendee have a camera-mounted drone that could take some aerial pix of our gathering? I think it would be way cool to see all that shiny from above.
3) Are there suggestions on what to bring (foodstuffs, serving items, etc) to be able to contribute to any group food events?

Thanks!!
Barrett
Throw some ice cubes down the toilet into the tank just before you leave...they will clean the tank while you drive and then melt. Won't hurt the tank.

Yep, a regular John's Massacree A/S campout movement has begun no turning back now. Just need some mud and rock bands to finish it off.

Got any fishermen or women coming? I am thinking about brining my kayaks and hitting the reservoirs around. Prefer fly fishing but any fishing is good fishing. Wondering if anyone is interested in organizing an outing?

As a newbie in the "overflow" category, any correct protocol for deciding not to go if rainy? Don't want to get stuck since I'll be in the field.

Don't let rain slow you down it's at the mountain foot hills the weather will be different 10 miles on either side of the park, plus the big pavilion is a hang out spot to watch everybody else walk around in the rain. There will be enough trucks to pull a tractor sled so as long as you aren't the last one out you will get out.
