This was our first Alumalina, but not our last! We had a great time! Thanks to John & Susan and Terry & Annie and the folks at Palmetto Cove! I know what a job (labor of love) putting something like this together is! We will miss the fall rally, but are already looking forward to next spring!
Thanks again to everyone for their hospitality,
Ed & Kerrie

Wow. Did we ever enjoy Alumalina! John (Sandlapper) was a delightful host, as were all the Palmetto Cove volunteers who worked hard to help us have a great time. As Newbies, we gained a lot of knowledge! Thanks to Mike & Diane for tipping us off about the excellent TPMS Jerry O'Connell has (bought a system, Jerry installed and it worked like a charm on the return trip). Thanks to Firedog for the air shocks info and demo (we have the same truck and AS; dealing with the F250 "dip" when loaded). Great to meet Tom and Deborah again. Great to meet so many new folks. The Dutch Oven cooking session was super, as was the Women on the road session (DW enjoyed, as did I).
First long road trip test was the 720 mi route home to Little Rock; went great. If I am successful in posting this picture, this is the first time Rose has been at our house; cannot keep her here; unload, wash and put in the storage unit. Neighbors have been lining up for tours.

Made it home to northern Michigan and snow. Glad I have those Michelin M/S tires!

Thanks so much to John and Susan and all the volunteers! We made lots of new friends and are so glad we chose Alumalina as our first rally.

Bill and I want to thank all those and especially John who put together another great Alumalina. We had a wonderful time visiting with old friends and making new ones.

How FUN was that!

Many thanks to John for allowing us to bring our brand of aluminum to your rally. This was only our second camping trip and our first rally. We really had a great week. Our guest book has over 100 names of folks that came through our trailer! It was wonderful talking to all of you and thanks for all of the compliments and encouragement. I also wanted to complement everyone's fabulous cooking during our stay at the Cove. The Possum Bog & fixens, Saturday's breakfast and supper pot lucks were soooo good! And an extra thanks to our friends and neighbors 'Streaming Eagle' for encouraging us to join in the fun that is Alumalina! Mark & Janet

Just wanting to thank everybody for welcoming us into your family, this was our first Rally and first time for the trailer in 18 years. Signed up for the Springstream in Ga in a few weeks. I went back through my dad's old pictures and ran across this one from 1972 at Palmeta Cove thought I would share it.

Thanks everyone.....

....for your many kind words, and the sercys. It was another great rally, ONLY because of all the fine folks that came, contributed, worked, shared, hung out and helped out.

As always, I had more fun than anyone.

Quoting our good friend David Felver, "People make the rally, the trailers are a bonus". Well said and so true. Thank you David.

We had 102 rigs, about 250 people, covering 20 states including Canada. Thanks especially to all of you that made the long haul. About 50% had never been to Alumalina before. Hope you will come back.

Many hands make light work, and there were many hands working hard to make things happen.

Terry and Annie.....hours and hours behind the scenes. Great pals.
Beffie....Seven Brooks, greeter and rally bag giver outer. And my sister.
Jake B.....Early bird coffee maker each morning.
Gary and Linda...GCinSC2....Camp fire cooks, DO chefs, keepers of the fire
Henry and Melinda....Captain Hank....Chief bog engineer, fine jewelry maker
Jon, Allyson, Rebecca....Chill fire cooks/dutch oven chefs.
John and Linda Foster....Name badges, cooks, clean up crew.
Bonnie and Greg...Just Retired....always helping in the kitchen. Tx Vanna.
Phil, Sue, Cheryl...sound system, good whiskey, Cheryl returns thanks.
Jerry and Irene....Bandits...great TPMS seminar.
Pam D....Tin Bender....Great seminar on solo women airstreaming. Tx Doll.
Ken W....SCTinMan....kept up with the raffles.
Bob W....Rob and Jan....also worked the raffles.
Paul W....Great service Sunday morning.
John and Anne...Big Hooter..always available and pitch in wherever needed
Darrell..TC Alumalina banner, really nifty ''drink riveted'' cups
Ronnie my corner Saturday night.
Bill T....bog chef
Tom S....another bog chef
Sonny M....bog chef and keeper of the other bog chefs.

My apologies if I left anyone off, but please know everyone appreciated your hard work to make it all happen.

Rita sends her best, and her thanks, to all that brought her gifts. she had a great time Saturday afternoon.

Thanks to all that contributed to the door prizes. They were great and added so much fun to Saturday night.

Thanks also to everyone for the fabulous pot lucks...non better, anywhere.

Great job everyone.

No kidding....I had more fun than anyone.

1972 Pic

One more PIC if you were there John I believe it would be the kid in the back with the hot pants. 1972 is what these were marked. Again thanks for a great Rally.
