We are stopped for the night at a Pilot truck stop just south of the Kentucky border on I-75. Bob is going to call the Airstream Service Center in the morning to see if we can get in earlier. We hope so.

Thank you, Sandlapper and all for another super Alumalina. It was great to see old friends and make a few new. We won't be back east for a long time, if ever. Come visit us in Yellowstone this summer if you are in the Park. We will be at the Fishing Bridge Service Station.

I was so sorry to miss it this spring. Planned to show up with my 10 meter Avion - The Pewter Palace - but life interrupted. In the midst of trying to retire by June 1, my business partner got some minor chest pains.... angio? right? no problemo? right?

And then surprise - triple bypass.

He's recovering slowly - and between that and all of the other craziness I was stuck in Virginia. Goal - FALL with the BIG trayla!

Maggie and I truly enjoyed the wonderful hospitality. We hiked Pisgah and she wore me plum out. Really enjoyed the folks we camped next too with the Tardis Bob and Page. And the folks on the other side with the Great Danes! What a wonderful time. Brother John, ya pulled off another winner - a far cry from the first couple we did at Carowinds Click image for larger version

Paula, while we weren't the lucky contestants, thanks for the donation of the Wanderlust book.

As your hosts, we wanted everyone to have the total Airstream experience, complete with dry camping.

We also made it home, safe, sound, whipped.

In a day or so I will post a wrap up.

For now, please know we had more fun than anyone, because of everyone.

Thanks to John & crew for a wonderful rally. We had a great time as usual and can't wait to be back in the fall. After ten long hours, we are back home, but it was well worth it.

John says he can give you another night of dry camping in the fall if you would like.

Thanks,
John and Cecilia

P.S. We are officially Tin&Tonic on Air Forums now, formerly CECEand PAPA.

Safely home, thank you

After the nice service on Sunday morning I headed out for home, arriving safely in the afternoon. Sorry to the dog owners I did not get around to catching but a few...maybe next year. But, a couple of "man's best friend"...

Thank You John & Susan!

Thanks to all who helped make Alumalina such a wonderful vacation. We were lucky enough to get to spend 5 days at this rally and each one was great. We're looking forward 'til the next time we meet up with such fun friends.

A BIG "Thank You" to everyone for the countless hours involved in coordinating such a wonderful event. And also my sincere thanks to all for putting up with my countless questions on Airstreams. My first Alumalina but certainly not my last.

Steve

Hello everyone!
I would like to thank John and Susan for welcoming me with open arms. I would especially thank Jerry for making me feel welcome at my first Airstream Alumalina event, well, my first event ever. Thank you one and all that helped in answering so many questions, and now I have more! Seems I have so many people to thank for being so kind and making me feel so at home. I hope that very soon I can return the kindness. I'll plan to bring a complete Silver Belle to the next event!
