What a great rally. Made it home ok in one piece inspite of some crazies on the highway. I spent the day cleaning up and working on the air conditioner. Blew out the drain line and all is well.
Special thanks to John and Kristy for all the hard work invloved in making this rally a success. Without them it would never had happened. If at all possible I will be returning for next years get together.
This was my first rally and frankly I was not totally prepared. There were a few things I should have brought and a lot of stuff I could have left at home. There were certainly many lessons learned for this newby. The next rally I am scheduled for is Canopener in January. Hope to see many of you there.

We too had a wonderful time at our first AS rally! It was so nice being able to put faces with forum names. We really enjoyed meeting everyone. Many thanks to John & Kristi for putting everything together and we hope to see everyone again in the future.

Thanks for putting these up. If we have a few more should we send them to you to add to the album? Also wondering if a link to these will be posted on the TAC web page as some of the other rally photos have been. We should at least see if we can get the group shot from Somday'59 posted.

It was a great first Rally and a fun way to celebrate an anniversary. We already made our deposit for next year.

You can contact the webmaster through the link at the TAC website or send a PM to username: exthemius here on the forums. It's the same person. Tell him you want to get pictures up and I'm sure he'll tell you the best way to transfer things to him for display on the website.

We came to this rally with lots of questions. As new Airstream owners, we were looking for answers and tips and we found both.

We had a great time at our first rally and we look forward to many more.

Thanks to all for your help and for putting up with our questions.

It's probably too soon to start the new TAC thread for Stone Mountain April 2013. But when you do start one, I will add a link to the photo album for people to continue to add their names and trailer information to it. How many people have already made reservations a year in advance?The Foster's have scored a site in the shade!

Wow, talk of 2013 already. Any chance that things can be pushed to Easter weekend? Would this create a price or campground space nightmare?

The reason I ask is because for those of us farther away and with kids, this makes time off of school (and work) easier to manage. We've done a trip to northern GA (to springstream) before and I took one day off of work. It turned out to be a very rushed trip. Around Easter would give me a holiday at work to work with and a week + Monday off for my kids.

Just a suggestion, of course you don't have to incorporate it. I just wanted to come this year and couldn't due to school / work. I am bummed even more after having seen the pictures!

Having hosted Springstream in the N GA MOuntains for years, almost no one would come on holiday weekends. We always shoot for a weekend around Spring Break here when there is no holiday. This year it was April 13. Next year I will shoot for April 5-7 weekend...fyi

Purple Premium Loop for Tac Rally 2013

When we left Stone Mountain Park Campground, the entire Purple Premium Loop had already been reserved for the TAC Rally of 2013. The dates were Thursday April 18th though Monday 21st 2013. All of the discount details had not yet been settled, but we were able to lock in the same nightly rate of $49.00 and reserve site 159.

To anyone that is close enough to visit Stone Mountain for the day. I have a one day events and attractions pass that is good until the end of the year. I meant to give it to someone before I left but totally forgot I had it. If anyone would like it PM me with your mailing address and it is yours.

Our dates are set for next year and reservations are being taken. I understand that no rally will meet everyone's expectations. You pick and choose those rallies that best meet your situation. The good news for this rally is the long lead time we have to get the logistics right. Next years rally will be a blast! We have 40 spots available in the premium loop. Let us all work together to fill them up.

I can understand not doing things on a holiday weekend. It can be very touchy as to who chooses camping vs. long standing traditions on holidays. I found that this year with a local rally that I help to organize. It was moved this year from mid-April to Easter weekend. We gained 1-2 attendees as a result, but lost 3-4. I was hoping that since things warm up sooner in the south that maybe spring break / Easter had less importance on it.

On a separate but related topic, I'd like to advertise for the 2013 rally when I publish the recap & pictures from this year's rally in the TAC newsletter. It would be awesome if a discussion thread and calendar entry were already set up. Not to rush...I'm sure the next TAC newsletter is still a couple months away.
