Stone Mountain Gathering

Will there be a microphone available? It would be nice to acknowledge those who drove the farthest, have the oldest or newest Airstream, are celebrating a birthday or Anniversary, and stuff like that, to help break the Ice at the "Meet and Greet". Be thinking of some other questions; like who has the youngest family attending, who brought the most dogs along, who has mice attending- you know what I mean!!

I've got a couple of bottle of syrup (probably sugar free) that I will bring since I accidentally bought some when I didn't need it at home and it will take us forever to use it. Hopefully we can use it up at the rally!

German Food on Thursday at Stone Mountain

On Thursday, KAYAKAMPERS would like to be a guide for those who are interested in eating dinner at a German restaurant in Downtown Stone Mountain.They live close to Stone Mountain and are very familiar with the area and the food at this particular German restaurant. The time to meet at the Pavilion, and a link to the menue will be announced shortly. It would be nice to know how many of you are reserved for Thursday and would be able to attend this.

Stone Mountain Campground Update

Latest roster shows that there are 3 sites left in the main purple loop and 8 sites left in the orange sites, that were added later on for the Rally. Get them reserved while you still can. In March they will become available to the general public.
When preparing your appetizers , covered dish, and brunch items, keep in mind the large group this is turning into.
First timers: Most folks prepare the food at home and freeze it ,so they can enjoy camping and rally activities without having to worry about fixing food at the campground.
The Sunday Brunch we will be preparing fresh pancakes and Waffles to go with whatever else people bring. There also will be coffee and cocoa provided.

This rally sounds like lots of fun. I will be so glad when I am retired so we can participate in more rallies.

I'll second that motion! I keep reading this thread because I'm living vicariously through those of you that are going. Distance, time of year (kids in school), and gas prices keep my family from going to this. We've been to that area of GA before and would love to go back. But, it just isn't right this year for us. But I'm enjoying reading about it! The organizers are doing a great job (what I look for in a rally that I attend) and I'm sure everyone is going to have a great time. I'll be expecting plenty of pictures to be posted here during the rally so that us stuck with "virtual rallying" can enjoy, too.

An idea for those taking pictures is to jointly post all rally pictures or videos to one site. We can include a link in the rally area for everyone to link to. There are several sites that will work great for this. Take pictures! Also, don't be surprised if you see the news media covering the rally. With so many silver spaceships gathered in one spot, the news outlets will want to document the event along with their alien owners ))

Get driving directions to Stone Mountain Park Atlanta Georgia

The East Gate Entrance to Stone Mountain Park is the one that is recommended in the link above. Apparently GPS directions are not advised, due to low bridges that some trailers might not fit under. Read your reservation guide lines before starting out.
Warning: Please be aware that you will encounter a "low clearance underpass" with a minimum clearance of 12 feet if your GPS directions route you to the "West Gate" of Stone Mountain Park via James B. River/Memorial Drive . To avoid this low clearance underpass, you should enter the Park using the "East Gate" via Exit 8 on US78.

Couple of things

I worked in Stone Mountain for several years and still do from time to time. That German restaurant is in an area where there might not be too much parking. Somebody may want to call ahead and ask.....

The "low bridge" that Kristi is referring to may be the railroad bridge that is just down the street from the restaurant. You can almost throw a baseball and hit it, literally. I've actually seen RV pieces lying about under that RR trestle.

By far the best route to the park is along Hwy 78. Approaching from the west, you enter the highway off of I-285. It's a wide, controlled access highway (like an interstate) right up to the park entrance. One word of caution, tho. If you leave the park and need to go south on I-285, you merge onto 285 in the LEFT LANE. ARGGGG. Never forget that Atlanta drivers are CRAZY. Approaching the park from the east is best on Hwy 78 as well. Lots of traffic lights from that direction, but a good road. Whatever do you do, avoid ANY ROAD with the words "Memorial Drive" in the name. There are several in the area and one of them has that low bridge on it.

Did I mention that Atlanta drivers are nuts? Full-Goose-Bozo best describes them.

We are hoping to be at the rally. We'll know in a few days if we can attend.

Good luck to y'all and have fun.

Jim

Thanks for reiterating the warning because we don't want any dings, dents or worse.
It sounds like car pooling may be in order for the Thursday night German Restaurant. I seem to remember a large parking area off of main street. If it is walking distance to the restaurant that may solve the problem too.
