It's a great idea to bring a Spartan to the rally. Sue and I love seeing those, and we hope to get a chance to visit.

John,

Can they come, pretty please? Can they John, huh, please?

Seriously, it's a really neat trailer. It'll look good with all the rest of the aluminum.

I have suggested they come early because of the size though.

The forum rules about rallies say as long as they are forum members, and whatever they are camping in is allowed at the venue, they can come. I am pretty sure Palmetto Cove is no longer Aristream-only.

The list...

has gone up and down, back and forth. It has been a challenge to keep up with. But...

...I have gone over it carefully and have it down on paper at 126 rigs with approximately 260 fabulous folks.

Still room for a few more.

Bits and Pieces....some good things to know

THE LOCATION...

The Palmetto Cove is located just off SC Hwy 11.
521 Table Rock Road, Cleveland, SC 29635. Phone #864.836.6221.
It is not hard to find but it is tucked away. GPS or their website will get you there.

It is a member owned, not for profit park run by volunteer members. They are VERY NICE FOLKS and are glad we are coming. They are camping folks just like us. Some are also Airstreamers.

All sites at the Cove are full hook up. One row has 50a, let the parking crew know if you need it. The hookups (W/E/S) will all be at the rear corner, driver's side. All sites are $25/night, they can only take CASH or CHECK. All sites are exactly the same.

They are opening early for us but not until March 24. Might be best to wait until the 25th to give them a chance to get squared away.

The Cove will handle the parking. They will have a plan and will do their very best to accommodate everyone. They will spot you in your site and note your name and site number. After you settle in just go to the office to settle up.

The Cove is in a beautiful area so be sure to find time to get out and look around. There are no supplies at the Cove, not even ice. There are limited supplies in the area.

There is decent wifi in the park and somewhat spotty cell service. A new cell tower has been built near by and may be up and running.

The Cove has a meeting hall with kitchen and laundry, a large covered pavilion with big fireplace (they furnish the wood), and a lounge with kitchenette. We have full use of it all at no cost to our Rally. Feel free to come and go anytime.

If you want a fire at your site it must be in a raised fire ring.

RALLY STYLE PARKING...

Simply means side by side, back to back, in rows. It is very Airstreamish and similar to the wagon wheel style parking Wally pioneered back in the day. Wagon wheel parking meant everyone was equal, and important, just like the spokes in a wagon wheel. At Alumalina, everyone is equal and everyone is important.

Your neighbors will be close so be sure to get out and meet them.

MEALS....

More on this later but please bring your table set ups to each meal. We will provide coffee each morning, bring a cup.

DOOR PRIZES....

We will have drawings for door prizes after supper on Saturday night. Every rig gets a ticket. You need not bring anything to give away but it is certainly welcome.

RAFFLES...

We will have several raffles going for anyone that likes to gamble a bit. Cheap thrills. Bring along a few extra bucks. Proceeds go toward rally expenses.

FLEA MARKET....

The flea market is open 24hrs every day or until you want to close. Under the pavilion, in the meeting hall, under your awning, wherever you want to.
Crafts, junk, swap, freebies. All proceeds go to yourself.

RALLY FEE....

We will be asking for a small rally fee to help cover expenses. Once again we are requesting $25 per rig, no matter how many are in your rig. A real bargain. If you are alone, consider it helping out the family of 5. We will have a table set up at each meal for you to register. Thank you in advance for helping out.

NAME TAGS....

It is always fun to put a face with a name. Especially a face with a Forum name. We encourage EVERYONE to wear a name tag of some sorts. A WBCCI badge if you have one, or make your own, or both. Be creative. We will have some blanks and markers available.

RITA...

Rita will be joining us once again Saturday afternoon under our awning. Come by, shake hands, meet her. She is a lot of fun. If you would like to bring her a small gift she will gladly accept it. She likes the cheap stuff.

ALMOST DONE....

We have meals and activities planned (more on them later) and will offer a bit of a schedule. Feel no obligation to participate in any. But I can honestly say that you will miss a lot of good stuff if you don't because all your pals will be there. But.... Do what you want, when you want, and where you want.

Just be sure of 3 things:

1. Have fun
2. Stay safe
3. Make Wally proud.


You will like it.

We have hot dog buns and baked beans for Thursday night. Big salad for Friday and sure are going to miss fish on Saturday, but will think of something good to bring.

I made something called Bun Pudding at our Moraine View rally last October, which was pretty darned delicious, and very well received.

Basically a caramel-ly bread pudding, made with leftover buns of whatever sort you happen to have.

I can offer up a DO of that for Friday night, should we have buns leftover from Thursday.

Am planning to do a loaf of bread for Possum Bog night, haven't thought too much about other offerings....but they will be something good.


Maggie

Hey Brother John,

Now Maggie and Me have hiked into the waterfalls in Pisgah National forest not far from the campground. I'm probably gonna take off either Friday or Saturday and let my Maggie walk us to some new falls, I have room for five in my Tahoe and anyone is welcome to come along. Some of the hikes can be vigorous but all of them pay off in the incredible scenery in the end - this is the area where "Last of the Mohicans" was filmed. Also, please add the Vintage Podcast for Thursday eve. around 10:00. Folks should expect to be interviewed by Tim Shepard - he's very laid back, so it will be questions around the type of Airstream where you're from etc. Interviewing with Tim after an evening with Rita is perfectly acceptable and expected.I do expect YOU to be interviewed since all this Possum bog mess was you're idea in the first place...
