Ditto on that!! I soooo wish that my trailer was done. I am very anxious to get out and meet everyone. I've made a ton of progress gutting my trailer and starting to come up with ideas for the interior

Hey Carol, glad to see someone from L.A. (Lapeer Area). I'm originally from Lapeer, currently in the Navy stationed down in Gulfport, MS. I'm planning my first Airstream excursion to Michigan somethime in April!!! Hopefully there'll be a rally or something while I'm there

Nice to meet you Brian. April would be perfect timing for Michigan I think that's the time we all start to rub our eyes and poke our noses out. So far nothing planned but if this early January feeling is an indication you gotta know we will all be raring to get out with the Airstreams ASAP!!!!!!!!! There's got to be shakedown rally we can go to. We'll just have to see to it, for sure.

Not sure if Jim took photos, but I forgot my camera at home! Imagine going to Disney at Christmas and seeing the Osborne Christmas Lights and not having a camera with you and then going to a forums rally. Anyway, it was great weather and good fellowship...it was just Jim and his family and my family plus the mystery contingency. There were five other Airstreams besides us and only one of them knew about the forums.

Aside from a thunderstorm Saturday night, the temps were mild and this weekend should be great for the Can Opener. Look forward to going back and seeing everyone that'll be there.

Great as usual. We had very mild weather. A couple of mornings were cool...low 50's and some days were warm...low 80's. No rain while we were there so I wore shorts the entire trip! The Osborne Family Light Spectacular is always beautiful no matter how many times I see it.

Alas, though, the economy has affected Disney. Some of the restaurants were noticeably less decorated than usual. We did buy lots of Christmas decorations and a few tee-shirts for the boys, though and I bought another Mickey Mouse watch,

It was about as far from Orlando to Topsail as it is from Atlanta to Orlando. The drive isn't bad though. It is interstate almost all the way, except the last 50 miles or so. The weather at Topsail was great, too. Shorts the entire weekend. It did rain Saturday night, but other than that is was mid-70's and partly cloudy on Friday and Saturday. I think it was cooler earlier in the week.

I'm hoping this weekend will be rain free and warm enough for shorts again. I don't like long paints!

Hi MM! It was nice meeting you and "Minnie" at Ft. Wilderness. By the time we checked on Jan. 3 we were the last Airstream there. On the 1st and 2nd most people were packing up their elaborate Christmas displays (and some were really, really elaborate, as you know) and heading out. By the time we left the place was maybe 75-80% occupied and virtually all the Christmas displays were gone.

We tried to book New Year's '10 but for any stay over 2 or 3 days they were already booked! A year in advance! Ridiculous.

Glad you had a nice trip to Topsail and back to GA - maybe we'll run into each other again at FW or a future rally somewhere.

BH

We are green with envy over the fun and weather you're having. Carry on, we'll be enjoying the trip with you on the flat screen.

Brad, it was nice to meet you and your wife after exchanging a couple of PM's about Ft. Wilderness. I'm sorry to hear that the holidays are already booked for next year because I haven't made mine yet. Last year they wouldn't book more than 12 months out so I was waiting 'till we got back. Well, you snooze you loose, I guess. I'll just have to call from time to time and see what I can get.

We frequently go to Ft W and often have to call over and over to get a reservation. They seem to have a strange reservation system. Often I can get in for longer stays over a short one of 2 or 3 days. If you want NYE, don't give up and keep calling or try online. I'll bet you can get in.

We've made reservations for Ft Wilderness at Christmas and New Years 4 or 5 times over the past 10 years - all within one month of going. We've always been successful getting the sites we want (preferred pet loop) so keep trying. I think people tend to cancel more as the time gets closer. Plus one of the reservationists told me that the system was reset at midnight so to try and call early in the morning for the best chance. I'm not sure if that's still the case or not.
