It's going to be a challenge getting our trailer, Marie, and my truck all ready for this in two weeks. It will, if nothing else, make sure Marie will be able to take a longer trip in May.
She has a lot of stuff she wants "us" to do, we'll see if "we" are up to it. A couple hour ride and a weekend camping will let us see if she is really up to it.

I think Paula was planning to show up Friday and leave Monday. We'll be leaving Sunday, so if somebody wants a spot for Sunday night, our spot, formerly Paula's, will be available.

A recap

We will offer a bit of a schedule but it is ONLY a suggestion. Feel no obligation other than to have a good time. We will have this printed off for everyone and included in your rally packet.


There is no pavilion or shelter, so all group activities will take place in the open area in the center of the loop. Everyone is close.



THURSDAY
6:00 for the early arrivals, our fabulous HOT DOG FEAST. Hot dogs cooked over the coals by Gary, homemade chili by Linda. We have 100 dogs and some chips, we will need buns, condoms, anything you would like to throw in to share, including a desert or two. Make it simple.

FRIDAY
5:00-6:00 MEET and GREET. Come meet your neighbors, bring your beverage of choice.

6:00-7:00 SUPPER ON US. Our almost, just about, nearly famous Possum bog. Don't like Possum?? How do you know, you've probably never had any. Not to worry, tastes just like chicken. Bring your dinnerware and a simple side or desert, if you wish. The possum is a meal in itself. Prepared by a pair of long time low country chefs, Henry and Ronnie, who specialize in Possum. You will like it.

7:00 until OPEN MIC. Here's your chance to be on stage and in the spot light. Please introduce yourself, if you wish. Don't be shy, you are among friends. Then enjoy a great Carolina evening around Thor, campfire extraordinaire.

SATURDAY, the big day
8:30-9:30 BREAKFAST. Pot luck, please bring your favorite breakfast dish to share. We will have a big perko pot of coffee set up, and Gary and Linda will have their famous Cowboy coffee and flap jacks over the coals.

10:00-12:00 SEMINARS. We are still working on the details but as in the past, we will have several hopefully informative seminars to offer. One will be "Is this good water?", lead by Terry of Terryandann. Ever wonder if the water you are drinking is really water? A second one will likely be on "Hitching Up", lead by yours truly. Maybe I can add to the confusion.

We will stagger the seminars so you can attend either, neither, or both.

12:-1:00 Lunch on your own

1:00-4:00 the best part:
OPEN HOUSE....only if you want to participate. We will have a sign for those that do. See what folks have done inside. Very inspiring. We have some really talented people among us.

FLEA MARKET....Anything you would like to bring to sell, give away, trade. Your own handmade items, extra Airstream parts, unruly kids. We will have tables set up.

BRING-A-BEER, GET-A-BEER if you like the craft beers and have some to share. A wash tub with ice will be set up in the center.

MEET RITA.....ahhh, naughty Rita. Come by for a visit under the awning, our trailer, site #50.

PAROOZING......enjoy the afternoon just hanging out. Be sure you have a good time.

5:00-6:00.....POT LUCK SUPPER. Please bring your favorite dish to share. Tons of great food.

6:30 until.....DOOR PRIZES. You do not have to contribute to participate, everyone gets a ticket regardless. Throw something in if you'd like to. Small trinket, handmade, bought, Airstream/camping related, cheap. We will have some good things from our sponsors to give away also.

Enjoy another fine Carolina evening with Thor.

SUNDAY
8:30... BREAKFAST. leftovers, doughnuts, pastries, Bloody Marys, anything simple and easy.

We hope to have a brief worship service, to return thanks for a great weekend.

the worst part...time to say good bye. As Scarlet O'hara said, "I'm just not gonna think about that today".

John

Just a reminder
There is little to no cell service in the Park. Some of the waterfront sites have a little, but talk fast, it will likely drop off.

We are 10 country miles off the interstate, and at least 18 country miles to emergency services.....TAKE CARE TO STAY SAFE.

The nearest small town is Great Falls, about 12 very country miles away. Not much there. Dollar General, small grocery store.

The nearest bigger town is Winnsboro, about 18 country miles. Walmart, big grocery stores, motel, HOSPITAL.

Remember to be discreet with adult beverages. State rules prohibit them in the Parks but we find the rangers to be very tolerant as long as you don't flaunt them.

The Park office/tackle shop has some basic supplies, best to pack in what you need. There is a small marina with a grill, some grocery items, and brewskys just outside the Park. Turn left at the Park entrance, then 1/2 mile.

The campground roads and sites are all paved, mostly level, deep sites. You may need some blocking for side to side leveling. 30a, water, fire ring, picnic table at each site. The dump station is just outside the campground entrance.

We are all on 1 loop....the only loop....so it is very conducive to paroozing. A walk is fun, everyone is close to everything.

There is no pavilion or shelter so we are at the mercy of the weather. Please bring a push up tent if you have one, and any portable table you may have. Even with the beautiful weather we will have, tents and tables will be needed.

It's a State Park, which means it is very dark once the sun sets. Bring a GOOD FLASHLIGHT and a Tiki torch.

There may be a few SOB's scattered around the Park. Please extend an invitation for them to join us, everyone is welcome. Let them know what good folks Airstreamers are.

Make Wally proud.

Linda and I were testing some of the campfire wood tonight, nice clear sky mid 60's. The wood tested just fine.

IF you can, bring a small offering of wood IF its easy for you, not recommending buying, IMHO that's akin to burning money.

Not sure what Thor II can handle, but I'm bringing the same cooking/campfire setup as last year, sorry no chimney logs available this year.

Does the park allow imported wood? I thought it was verboten.

Because of the Emerald Ashe Borer all the SC parks request folks not to bring wood from o/s SC. The bugs don't know which state they live in, and since the Carolinas join, no problemo I would say.

I will bring some scraps from my shop, and also some real wood from the rancho deluxe.

MsMoto and all espresso drinkers.

I have Wedgewood demitasse cups that I have been trying to sell for over a year to no avail. My late father used to use them for espresso. He would dip the lip of each cup in lemon juice and then sugar and then carefully pour in the espresso.

Since I have had no luck selling them, what better way to use them than to bring them to Alumalina and let those who imbibe in espresso to adopt a cup and saucer. I have a total of twelve, all Florentine pattern, 3 in black, 3 in navy, 3 in turquoise and 3 in gold.

And those who don't imbibe in espresso...they are small cups...good for a generous shot of of a single malt or moonshine.

Sorry forgot about the wood restrictions. So looks like firewood duties fall on Palmetto State folks.

Maybe Sandpaper can start a recycled sawdust and wood chip organically created smokeless burns all night ashless all natural firewood log company from his furniture side job.

Remember what your teacher always said: "Make sure you bring enough for the whole class".
