We had a great time, too - thank you

Even though we visited for just a couple of hours Saturday morning, AND are still wannabe's, we enjoyed the warm welcome at the rally. Sorry we didn't get to meet everyone, but we got acquainted with a few couples, and enjoyed visiting JPurdy's rig - thanks, Judy.
Unfortunately, we rousted someone out of bed trying to get info - please forgive. You were courteous, but we will try to pay more attention to signs people are resting!
And Cloudland in the fall - wow! Pretty sure we'll be going back there!
Thanks again.

Forgive me for not listing you in the earlier post. I was up by a little after 7 a.m. but not really functioning until at least 9 a.m. Hope you had a chance to talk to a few people while you were there.

Hey All! I too had a GREAT time with everyone at Cloudland Canyon. Leemo And I made it home in two-ship formation with no problems. Many thanks to Al for the great job replacing my cockpit window tracks! No rattles now! And we open and closed them all the way home just because we could. Thanks again Al. I will pass the technique on to other loose/stuck window sufferers.
The food was great. Leaves were beautiful. Everyone was most kind and we really enjoyed looking at all the cool units. Thanks to all the planners and executers.
(might have been better if we had a little ceramic frog in the picture) :-)
Where are we going next?

Josephhh

Next Rally

FDR looks beautiful! Where is it? I'm already ready to go again!

Gardner, sorry I didn't get to meet you. With us living so close, I will be interested to see what you are looking at when you go to buy. I just love to see folks come into the Airstream "fold." I really enjoy my Airstream and use it every chance I get, sometimes even in the driveway.

Sue, glad to hear that you made it to Pizza Chop's place. I was thinking about ya'll being on the road yesterday.

The Mickle's head for Florida tomorrow. We'll keep you in our prayers for a safe trip!

I am open - but thinking FDR State Park in April...possibly the weekend of the 15-17. Not been there yet myself, but hear terrific things about that park. It would be a good location for Al, Tn,Ga folks and might entice some western Fla people, and others as it is closer to some than the N Georgia campgrounds..

I would love to see us hit 25 or more units for a weekend, but that would mean settling on a spot and making an early reservation.

Talking Happy Campers

Hey Y'all!

I gotta say this rally was somethin' special. My newlywed wife, Lynn, and our little pup, Chi-Chi enjoyed it too. The hike to the Waterfalls and scenic overlook of the canyon were spectacular--definitely a "must see".

I enjoyed a great 3-Unit convoy up from ATL with ALANSD and Josephhh. I got a pre-departure picture below. You should have heard all the chatter from the Truckers as we flew in formation. It was a hoot!

I must express my appreciation for the skill and effort Dennis took to make everyone's Customized Rally Signs--very cool. As always, it was nice to meet more nice Airstreamers, swap stories, and learn more about Airstreams--I learn something new everytime.

Josephhh and I spent a lot of time identifying and trying to resolve some systems problems on his unit, but our efforts paid off in the end. We are energized once again to adopt improvements and ideas we gleaned from the rest of you guys.

A big thank you to Big Al for teaching us how to install the schleagle track liner for our front windows. Trying not to get in the way, I did get a few pictures but they were not a detailed as I would have preferred. I will post them soon. The process was fairly simple and AL showed us a few tricks tol help the process go smoothly.

The Pot Luck dinner was a huge smash and thanks to kposey and friends for supporting the event. There was so much good food, and the host of friends was truly magnificent. Hat's off to all the contributors and participants for making it such an enjoyable event.

Thank you to Andyfuson for the info on Stone Mountain State Park & Campgrounds. It sounds like a happening place, that might warrant consideration for a future rally as well--just a thought.

Josephhh and I were lucky enough to get two camp spots side-by-side; thanks to ALANSD for finding and holding them for us. I threw in a couple of pictures of Josephh's and my 24 footers.

We enjoyed meeting everyone! Let's do it again soon!

LeeMo and Lynnie

Stone Mountain & Six Flags

LeeMo,
Earlier in the year my wife and I along with 2 of the 4 kids spent 4 days at Stone Mtn. State Park camping area. There are a number of things to do in the park so we spent one day getting settled, one day in the park looking around and riding rides One day was spent at Six Flags Over GA. and then the fourth day was spent resting before breaking down and heading home.

Dennis's handiwork

Like I mentioned earlier, I was thrilled with the placard & stickers Dennis brought over while we were making camp. Here's what they looked like:

What a great trip

We made it back home yesterday. It was so great to meet with all of you in person. It felt like we had all done it many times before. I will follow the forum, and we will try to participate in another rally when we can.

Special thanks to Mrs. Purdy for leaving the Brunswick stew. I grilled ribs Mon. night and boy was it the perfect combo.

Thanks again to Dennis for the signs. I felt right at home.

Sue, what can I say. You are a gem. Keep shining. And Kathy, well you know. What a blast!!! Alan, thanks to you for making it all possible. I guess I could go on and on, but I fear that I may have butchered some names by now, but all of you were great to meet.

I now feel ever more special to be an Airstreamer.

When I get a chance to work with my pictures, I will post some. Plus, I have some I want to send to certain people as well.

Signed,
Andy, Lee, and the mean, but pretty, Tosca dog

Be sure to go over to the new thread on April rally and vote for the park of choice. I expect FDR will be the place, but will go with majority rule.

Of course we will have a recount or two, some lost ballots, some hanging chads, and throw the whole idea out before its over

Thumbs up What A Time

Oh no, not again, gotta go thru Atlanta again in the Spring? Up until I got my Airstream this past December I had NEVER been to Atlanta in my life except for one time I had to change planes there. Now, I have been forced to go through it, around it, over it, under it and just about any other way you can do it. Came around it yesterday coming back from Bobby Brown SP, driving that durn 12 lane highway is a load of laughs, if you are crazy.

Now where did you say the next rally is? Oh no!

Anyway, I put my vote in the pot on saying this rally was a blast. More fun arguing with the park rangers on if you should have a red or green tag. Kathy and I had a conversation with the young ranger in the office that can not be repeated on this forum but it kept me laughing for days.

Beautiful park, great people, unbelievable food and just plain old fashioned fun. Slept in Kathy's trailer Friday night, now that is another story.

Thank you Dennis for the beautiful signs, I am going to hang mine in Mariposa for the good memories it has for me.

Craig/davidz71..what can I say, it was a week end to remember forever. I am so sorry you had such back luck headed home. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy!

Thanks to Ron/PizzaChop I did not go into a funk when everyone left the park, he came by, took pity on me and let me accompany him and his wonderful guys and gal to the Canyon to view the sights. Then he and Brenda let me spend the night in their front yard. Along with the 3 cats and two horses....................lol. Hey, you have never lived until you watched Peanuts with perpetual motion going on all around you.

Thank you Ron and Brenda for your hospitality and exquisite Pizza.

I have a lot more to say but this has been long winded enough so need to end, BUT, what are you going to do after this rally as an encore you guys?!

The red green sign issues was almost funny. I found out after I set up quite completely, awning, hoses, lines and all...that my tag was the wrong color for the site I picked. I ran around looking for an alternate site (there wasn't one) and after I got back to my spot noticed the ranger had come by and changed the color of my tag to the correct one for the site I was one.
It sure was fun, and the weather and scenery added to it.
