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!
We are signed up and really looking forward to it from all the positive PR we have heard. However, I see now there may be mud, barking dogs and truckloads of kids. We love kids and dogs but also peace and quiet. I don't mind mud as long I am not sitting in it. Since you are involved in parking, are there different areas of parking for different needs of attendees?

Has everyone who is signed up for Alumapalooza received a confirmation or something. I signed up back in August, I think and haven't received anything?
We are coming in from Toronto but I can't remember when I booked for :-))))

Hi Jojo and Rick

Your confirmation was emailed to Jojo's email address on Aug 26, but just to be on the safe side I've re-sent it today.

Anyone else with questions of an administrative nature can always reach us at info@alumapalooza.com or via phone 802-877-2900 ext 4.

- Rich

Everyone is parked as they arrive in the main field. There is a generator section but no other special sections. The parkers are very friendly and will try to get you the space you want. There are usually a few spots far off in the corner that are quieter if that's what you want.

We are expecting about 25-30 kids this year, out of over 400 attendees. Barking dogs haven't been a problem in the first two years we've run this event. People are generally pretty good about managing their kids and fur-kids.

Welcome to the forums! We'll be there, too. It's a one of the best Airstream rallies of the year. It will be our third time.

Thanks, Suzzeee.
Got it at Ikea. It's hooked up to a wireless dimmer switch, it collapses and we store it on the bed while traveling.

Bugs?

We're planning to go to our first Alumapalooza in our new Bambi 16'. Just wondering how buggy it tends to be (or not)? Anyone have any input from previous 'paloozas?

Bugs

We were there last year and I don't remember being bothered by bugs. I remember being very comfortable outside.

Ditto. I have been there three times now at that time of year and have never noticed any insect problems.

mosquitos

If you sit out at night you may be bothered by the mosquitos. Don't know what the bugs will be like this year. We did NOT have much killer COLD weather.
The black flies and the horseflies got after the parking crew out in the field a little bit. We just bit them back!
