we have the spoon. It has initials on the back which threw us off. Seems we always find a few orphan items when we clean up after the meals each time.
The spoon is being held captive until we meet again, unless you want us to mail it??

Heyyyyyy all........Home and settled in on the rainy day......Just a few thoughts:

Got home after shaking hands with everyone, despite the CDC warning not to do such. The incubation period is pretty well past now for the oinker flu and am still healthy.......Better than shaking hands was sharing the smiles and heart felt thoughts and honest non-me generation feelings and concerns.......LOVE reality......

Gotta thank Alan and Shannon for the effort placed forth in taking the responsibility to sponsor this thing. But, ya know, it is Y'ALL who really make this thing possible and I thank you all for what you do. Surely NOT to diminish what Alan does......hug Bud......BUT......The great food, fellowship, and sharing spirit that is present is provided by YOU.........THANKS......

At long last, came across some ASA (Army Security Agency...hush-hush)folks......totally rare and unknown.....especially wonderful to share a bit of mission talk as we worked on the same European "enemies" and others.....lololol...while looking around to see who was listening...you sure you are not FBI???...JIM AND SUSAN soooo glad to meet you guys

Golly, counting my special significant other Susan, how many Susans were there?....off the top of my head can think of 5.....

Rowdy, the survivor dog is doing really well and I thank all for your concern over him. Turns out that after removing the bullet that had been there for who knows how long, that we left without bringing Penicillin as an antibiotic for a propholactic.......We went to a farm store and got what should have worked.....He had a reaction to this stuff that caused him to have problems........Anyway, the swelling that was all down his leg is now just isolated up at the shot location as a knot and hopefully will go away in a few more days.......The bullet incision continues to heal really well........

I wish I knew the folks from SC little boy's name.......the one with long hair.......All 3 children are so fantastic, mannered, SMART, and a pleasure to have as neighbors or even to hang around, pet the dog and help snap beans........

Anyway.......can go on and on......Yes, 2nd row center was great at the concert.....The songs of course were great memories; but watching the glint in the singer's eyes, the bass players fingernails pick, and beads of sweat break out on the lead guitar player's brow was as they say, priceless...........Exiting the hall and walking up the hill and being home was really nice. Especially 30 minutes later looking down at the parking lot and STILL seeing folks fighting to get out of the parking lot.......

MMMMMMMMM......the food.......The turkey was hard to smoke, I know especially in the cold and wind.......ol smoker here........but soooo worth the trouble to me....thanks........mmmmmmmm and that flank steak???......soooooo good.....3 choices of chili....yummmmmmmy......glad I didn't do my goat special blend as it would have just gotten lost in the delights available.......ON AND ON......ALL was so fantastic.......Can still remember walking up from the parking lot/road and smelling that fantastic pineapple upside down cake......MY all time favorite treat.....THANKS

Not going to use names....cause to this ol dyslexic/pre-alzheimers guy I can't remember diddly.......but sooo many good folks......Just honest, down to earth, not ME generation/yuppified, with God, real, intelligent, not drunk or high, sharing, giving, not concerned with personal wealth or accomplishments but ready to lend a hand FOLKS...........THANKS.........I know our paths will cross again.......Love and God's blessings and GRACE to YOU ALL...........Dennis

ohhhhh........As an after thought.........YOU are REALLY TRULY invited up anytime to use our mountaintop as a base for a few days........Yes, you can see Tennessee and Alabama, Atlanta, and I think NC.......Yes, you can get up the 12 degree 1/2 mile private road........Yes, there is a parking place at the barn with power and water......Yes, you will have privacy.......No, I wont give you a bunch of chores; but if you want to help drop a couple of trees and split them, till the garden, plant whatever is due, harvest what is ready, watch the deer, hunt the tree rats, count the turkeys, actually SEE the "black" panther of NW Georgia, listen to the coyotes, see if we really do get at least 30 hummingbirds out at the gazeebo, and just enjoy doing NOTHING........COME SEE US.......God Bless.......Dennis

Hate we missed it!

From all of Pickens County Campers....hate we had to miss out! Layoffs, shoulder surgery, economy and weddings have dominated our group. we did make a run to another great GA park last month called Victoria Bryant...great place!!! And as a heads up, Scott and I stumbled on a '70 Int'l in a scrap yard, what a deal!!!!! However, we decided to do some investigating bbecause WHAT IDIOT RECYCLES an AS.... we found some old mail in the AS, did an a search on the net.....the owners were over joyed that after 2 months it had been found! Keep your eyes out and your aluminum secure!

Dennis/Susan,


Ditto on all you said! The little boy's name was Dawson. He is David and Julie's little boy...they were all great kids for sure. We consider them dear friends. David told me he really enjoyed meeting and talking with you.
I hate that Ruth and I didn't get to hang out with you guys more but I did enjoy the few minutes we did get to talk...and also at the concert. We ended up leaving the concert early due to extreme volume levels. This is coming from someone with a multi-amp, multi speaker stereo in the wagon. We were sitting on the 3rd row and about 9 feet away from a large speaker.
We ended up sleeping late Sunday. I think that was you that knocked on the door but by the time I got to the door, you were driving off. PM me your contact info and I hope we can get together soon.

Thanks, G

nice thoughts you all , we enjoyed it as well. Concert was fun, we sat in the back and still could see and hear very well. Reminded me of some of my gigging days in places like that.
I am going to see if I can hold October spots for next year as well as April so we will all share in the beauty of section B on the lake. Maybe if I do it early enough we can really fill the place with aluminum...

Alan just happened to wander by Saturday morning while I was making coffee, so I decided to follow him to scout out the Paris pavilion. Pretty nice views of the late sunrise on the mountains.

Great shots Jim. It was beautiful that morning! Coffee smells extra great when staring out at the multi-colored mountains.

Many thanks to all who made this 1st Rally a great experience for this newbie! Alan-Shannon: Thank you for coordinating the Rally. Thanks to my new AS buddies, my mirror/cabinet door in the bathroom now WORKS, I've refilled both LP tanks, used my stove for a HOT breakfast and my oven for a casserole. But best of all met good friends! DK and Susan: how is Rowdy? Improving? I've stayed here the rest of the week, have enjoyed quiet days by the lake but mostly have been trying to stay dry! Saw Willie Nelson last night and it was a good concert. Headed out today.

As others have said, THANKS FOR THE RALLY! Alan, we don't make every Falluminum or Springstream, but really enjoy the ones we get to.

We had a slight bit of bad luck/good luck on the way home. Just before the Bells Ferry exit on I-575, I was in the left lane (as usual) and I heard a car horn. I asked, "What?" and looked in my right rear mirror and some kind motorist had her window down and was pointing at the side of the Airstream. So I threw my turn signal on and she slowed up to let me in the right lane. I immediately slowed and moved into the emergency lane assuming the obvious, yes we had a flat tire on the curb side! Fortunately, the motorist notified us early enough that we didn't get any damage. I thought I was taking photos of my first (and hopefully only) flat on the Airstream, but it turns out my card was full and I didn't notice it at the time. As it turned out we were only about 100 yards form the exit so I pulled of the exit and into the parking lot of a strip shopping center next to the interstate and changed the tire in the parking lot. Then pulled over to the Shell station across the street and added air to the spare to bring it up to proper inflation (took the full $.75 to fill the tire). Anyway, I took it easy and proceeded home.

The "Changes in Latitudes" is safe at home and in her usual place at the end of the drive way. I had planned to replace all five tires before next Spring anyway so I may just have to move the plans up a bit. The next camping trip of length is the Can Opener so I have a little time. I was thinking adding Cent-a-matics (SP?) when I do. Just have to add it to the budget.

I had a question about the Spartan. On the roof was a flat disk mounted just behind the air conditioning unit. I know the disk is for the TV, but I don't know if it is for satellite (I think I saw it advertised for that purpose) or if it is just a regular TV antennae. Does any body know. (Sorry, I don't know David's avatar name to PM him). Does any body have a source for them? Thanks.

Really fortunate you caught the flat that early. We have a 2006 Safari and decided to change the tires after 3 flats in 5 trips. They were each plugged and gave no trouble, but with about 40,000 miles, it seemed a good time.

We were unable to get the proper load range Marathons in time for our Summer trip so tried a set of Maxxis. I have about 3,000 miles on them and am very happy.

FYI.

Matt
