We made it yesterday evening without incident. We decided to arrive early, and avoid driving in the forecasted weather. We have a new-to-us tow vehicle, this was the first time towing with it, and I didn't want to add foul weather to the mix.

We only saw a dozen radar traps in the 150-odd miles we were in NC. An unintended side effect to making sure we drove under the limit was a 1.5mpg increase.

Room for more so if you are thinking about it do it. Just look at the pictures to see what a great time for all can be had. Just come by for the day if that is all you can do. Bring some wine or cookies and join in the fun

We have plenty of room, for day visitors and/or weekenders. Just get here and have some fun.

We haven't even ''officially'' begun and already having a blast. A guesstimate is maybe 45-50 here already.

Thanks for the pix Tommie.

Driving up Rt 60 now - on the way. Seeing an array of roadkill along the way - cat, fox, snakes...but not surprisingly - no possums. Hmmmm. Looking forward to Friday's bog!

The same correction happened to me on an earlier post. I guess since John works with sandpaper, it is not entirely inappropriate.

Palmetto Cove, Late 1970's

For those of you enjoying Alumalina at Palmetto Cove, here's a photo of a rally at the park in the late 1970's or early 1980's. The image is a scan of a postcard issued by the park when it was an Airstream Park.

I'm sure the park will look good this weekend filled with Airstreams again.
