Mystic Springs Moho Rally!

I have decided that I will be offering a doorprize to one attendee at the Mystic Springs Rally.

Before you say great! read on.

I have a 19.5 steel wheel with a Bridgestone tire (regroovable) in good condition as a second spare. I feel that 2 spares is a bit redundant and am offering it up as a door prize.

The winner of the door prize will be the Motorhome Rally attendee that can come up with the best rally story, camping story, best bribe, or even a really ingenoius reason that they need a new or second spare.

Points for originality, humor or just pure b.s. will be tallied by the forum members and the award will be presented at dinner on Sat.

Of course if there is no intrest in the prize I will just leave it in my garage.

The winner of the door prize will be responsible for all taxes and must allow the forum moderator to use their handle and story in future rally posts. Once I give away the tire and wheel I will not take it back! It will be up to the winner to arrange to get it home.

So with that being said, post your entries!

Good luck

Ugly, ain't it?

That is one UGLY wheel. Although Floridians all know that "Tires ain't purty!"

I'm not sure if you're the winner or loser if you have to take it home from Mystic Springs. But I'll be a winner for getting it out of my garage.

If I would be the lucky winner, not only would I have 2 spares, but I also would have two extra lug nut holes...

Peter,

My MH has a 10 bolt rear and 5 bolt front. I assume from your post yours is different?

Yes, Brett, 8 and 8.
The 10 lug rim might be a hard to find item.

AHHA! The door prize is even better than we thought! It could be a RARE piece perfect for your collection!

Well, if the wheel won't work someone may still want to upgrade their spare. This tire has not been regrooved, and does not need to be. I would say we are looking at 80% left of the original rubber.

I had a medium sized screw in my tire that I just got removed. It did not puncture the tire! That was the last repair standing between us and the rally! Filling the gas and putting in some water (in the right spots!)(not 80 gallons of water) for the trip.

By the way, I was wearing shorts in that photo but it was so cold the night before that the host shut off the water and drained the lines at 6:00p.m.! I did have my first hot shower in my 345 at Mystic Springs so it will always have a special place in my heart!

Fred,

I must have missed something somewhere else. I just have to ask...where did the 80 gallons of water go? Please say it wasn't in your fuel tank.

Classic Motorhome Rally #2 Directions

From I-10, go north on Highway 29. If you are going north, it will be a right turn. Watch for the WBCCI wooden arrows.

There is a Williams Truck Stop at I-10 and Hwy 29 for those needing fuel. For those coming through Tallahassee, there is a Flying-J in Midway (just west of Tallahassee). They have the best fuel prices in the area. The exit/mile post is ROUGHLY 195.

FROM DICK AT MYSTIC SPRINGS

I don't believe that the is a mile post number (Hwy 29) but there is a large silver airstream sign at Mystic Springs Road. Additionally, as you go north toward the turn off for the park you will go through a small village called Bogie.It is just past the top of the next hill that you will see the large airstream sign at Mystic Springs Road. Hope this helps. Also hope that you have a great rally. Anything that we can do please feel free to ask.

DickM.

Motorhome Rally - Post-Rally Debriefing

ok, I'm the first one on but I had the shortest distance to travel.

We had seven (7) classic motorhomes at Mystic Springs and oh what a site! Everyone had a great time and learned a ton. We had a riviting class, awning school, parade of home, and some get down and dirty underneath stuff. I'm sure photos will be coming.

We had 2 coaches from Florida, 2 from Texas, 1 from Georgia, 1 from South Carolina, and 1 from Indiana.

Peter now understands my hose reel 'problem'.
My front air bags don't work!
Charles' 'to do' list is now many times longer!
Dr. Joe wants more room (coach envy is against the rules).

Here's the first photo (minus one coach)!

Lightbulb Posting pictures from the rally!

I have setup a category on AirstreamPhotos.com for the 2002 Mystic Springs MH rally. If you all upload your pictures to the same place, they will be well organized. You can also post comments on AirstreamPhotos.com and they will count towards your Rivet counts!

Once they are uploaded you can link to them in a post here in the forums. To learn more about including multiple photos in a post, please visit How to include multiple pictures in a post! thread.

I look forward to seeing & hearing all this great rally!

If you anyone has trouble uploading your images, please post your problems in the "How-to" section. Lets not clutter this thread with "off topic" photo posting questions. I may need to change some settings to allow uploading photos from your digital cameras easier. Currently the largest image you can upload is 1024 x 1024 pixels. This is to save server disk space.

Awesome, just awesome!!
We just landed in Austin, 1500 miles with no problems. We had to drive right through a massive storm in Louisiana and found a lot of flooding on the other side of it.
It will take a while to digest this adventure.
After seeing all these fine coaches and meeting some truly great people, we are proud to be owners of an Airstream Motorhome!
Kudos to Fred and Alan for picking Mystic Springs Airstream Park, which I believe every Airstream owner should experience.
When we drove up to Mystic Springs on Friday afternoon(after searching for shrimps for hours), the park host Rona and Sandy jumped out of their Airstream Trailer and rang a bell, welcoming us.
Our 1979 Excella had a very small cooling leak at the top of radiator, which I promptly wire brushed, cleaned with denatured alcohol and fixed with JB Weld (it worked!!) The drip of brake fluid, I noticed at the master Cylinder (scary!), was caused by some rust at the lid gasket.(fixed)
There was only one other MH in the park at that time. It was Cliff from Indiana with his beautiful 1987 345. After I set up camp, I immediately started to dismantle the 345.
It was rather disappointing to find nothing wrong with it, except the door bell wasn't working.
How Cliff can drive without a working door bell is beyond me.
In the early evening Charles and Ernie from Houston, Texas descended on Mystic Springs in a
1989 345LE. Charles called the trip the shake-down test. His coach was in perfect condition, except his rear air bags were ready to blow any time.
After dark, Edie and Brett arrived at the park with their 1976 Argosy. The park hosts stayed up to welcome them.
Alan and family in their 1982 280 came in way passed midnight, but we never heard them.
By Saturday morning, we were 5 MH's strong and everytime I looked down the row, it send chills down my spine!
Saturday afternoon Fred and family arrived in their 1985 345, hose reel fixed, 0 psi in the front air bags.
By late afternoon, the last missing MH founds its way to Mystic Springs. Dr Joe and Winn in their rare 1984 270 excella. Dr Joe must have felt like he was pulling into a pit stop at the Daytona 500.
As soon as he parked his coach, his exhaust pipe was remounted, his awning fixed and made operable and was given general shake down.
What a great experience!
