We have an unusual view of our driveway now...with no shiny aluminum in it. But there will be another...older...smaller ( hope I am not describing myself here ...down the road a bit.

We will be there if we can though... meven if we have to rent a trailer!
We are pround to have kept this very nice trailer in N GA. We have a site for the rally, now added the aluminum trailer and we are ready to go. Thanks to Alan for all the work he put in the AS as it has allowed us to stretch higher than we had planned but gave us a very nice example of an AS.

See you all at Falluminum, now hopefully the site works for the camper.

Mike,

Welcome aboard, you've bought a great trailer that you guys will certainly enjoy for a long time. You're starting off much different than most vintage Airstreamers. Most buy trailers, then work and toil towards making their first trip...then continue to work on other stuff that needs improvements. With this trailer, it's all done. Nothing to do but enjoy it and maintain it's excellent condition!
I am surprised that you're coming camping after Alan explained the hazing/initiation process involved. I hope he didn't leave that out in the interest of selling the trailer.

Thanks, G

PS Please let us know if you have any problems with snake handling before we begin preparations. Chant, chant, chant.....

Gev!!!,

That's top secret inner fire circle privileged information you're putting out on the street for everyone to see. Now we'll never get any new attendees at the rally.


Hey Mike,

Glad you're able to attend. The rallies in Hiawassee are always fun if "G" behaves, and they're usually better when he doesn't. Ruth always does a pretty good job keeping him out of trouble.

Alan put a lot of effort into that trailer and hopefully you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of his work. All Airstream require maintenance of one form or another but you should have many of the not so pleasant chores out of the way.

We can't make it this Fall so hopefully we'll catch up with you all at SpringStream 11.

Regards,

Kevin

Don't worry. The real hazing is reserved for those with the name Brad. Worse if their last initial is R.

My site is probably available...not sure but we might do the Ramada Inn.

Still thinking on that.

By the way if you sell a 31 foot airstream, you can't believe all the stuff that you have to take out of it!! OMG.
My house is full of camping gear, dishes, pots, extra clothes, memorabilia from trips taken and so on.
I will need a trailer just to store it all.

Congrats to PIZZACHOP --Ron and Brenda on the birth of the newest addition to the pizza clan...Ethan James. 10lbs plus!

Dont feel bad Alan; this will be my third stay in the Ramada! But at least I get to visit aluminum. And who knows maybe someday I'll make mine habitable.

Hey, Its been a few years since we have been to the fall rally. I broke down and signed up, so bear with me as I am new to posting. Pickens County Campers has grown and we have a few more members. I am planning on bringing a new Spartan this year. Our group has another Spartan as well as a Yellowstone too. I will be calling to get a few sites. Does anyone know if they are any sites left?

New to us Excella

Well, thanks to Alan, we have our "New" Airstream and we enjoyed it this weekend at Lake Lanier. Can't wait to meet more AS people at the Falluminum.

That's why you need another trailer before you sell one! Haven't you learned anything from watching me??? I'm going through withdrawals for you! I'll help you look.

Congratulations to Pizzachop and family on the new addition. Maybe we'll get to meet him at Falluminum.

We may be able to make it if we can snag Alan's spot. Things have been a bit hectic the last year but we'd really like to make it to another rally.
