We will have our seven, almost eight year old son with us for the whole week. I am sure all the kids will have a great time. I have been told that in JC there is a Dairy Bar within walking distance from the factory about a 1/2 hour walk. I look forward to everything including the factory tour as my son will enjoy that as well. I think we will head to Dayton and visit the Air Museum one day.

Shari, I'm jealous! Jim and I would have loved to attend both Palooza & Fandango in the same year but Fandango conflicts with another great Colorado activity...the Telluride Film Festival. Labor Day weekend can be good, or just too good, with so many great activities! Will we see you this year at the Airstream Vintage Restoration event in ABQ?

Bummer...too bad we can't just rally-hop from one great event to another!

No, not this year. We're done with our resto (as you know!) so that one will be relegated to an "occaisional event" for us. So many rallies, so little time!

We are thinking of attending Alumapalooza , sans trailer as ours is undergoing a reno. We live in NH are hoping to do some sightseeing on the way out. Niagra Falls and Mammouth Caves are on the list, any other suggestions? Does Fletcher's Trailer Sales have retail store (NY)? Best routes to take?

I'm a little confused--is everyone here talking about going to Alumapalooza or are some folks only talking about going to Alumafandango?

We are pretty excited about Alumapalooza. We had to cancel out last year (job issues), so this year, we're psyched that we'll be going with our trailer all fixed up! If anyone else is going from the mid-Atlantic area, be sure to let us know. We're planning to go to Somerset, PA on Sunday, camp for two nights, then head West.

I think I may go. I watched the video from last year. Do think that the field everyone is parked in would support a 17000 lbs motorhome? I seem to get stuck every time I'm on a wet grassy field.

They have large farm tractors to assist anyone who has traction problems. I have seen plenty of motorhomes, both at Alumapalooza and at the similar Homecoming events that preceded Alumapalooza.

parking

Larry and I will be there as part of the parking crew. We are hoping for warm weather and little rain! We pick out your parking spot by the size of the trailer/moho. If it looks too heavy we try and find you a nice spot. Last year when it was so mushy from all of the rain, we put some of the mohos on the asphalt/graveled areas until the mud dried up. And as Pahaska says, we do have access to a big JD tractor, just in case. I think we only had one that got pulled out last year.
We hope that you will sign up and come have fun with the rest of us! There will be lots to see and do there this time around too! Look forward to meeting you!

By the end of last year's Alumapalooza I was the only motorhome NOT parked on the field. I stayed in the generator section by the service center the entire rally mostly because of my one dog. He had never seen so many people in one place and was barking at everyone. He has improved a lot over the past 8 months though so I'm hoping to "mainstream" him this year provided it doesn't rain, and rain and rain... However, I don't see how it could rain more in the weeks leading up to the rally than it did last year!
