McKinney Army Corp of Engineers on Lake Allatoona in Georgia

The McKinney gathering is now only one month away. There are sites available in loop 105-117, so you can still make reservations.
Thursday arrivals: No group activities are planned. A visit to the Booth Western Museum is suggested.
Friday evening on site 101, at 6:00 PM, an appetizer meet and greet social is planned. Bring a finger food appetizer to share, a chair and a flashlite or lantern. We will be the flashlight brigade and help guide late comers to their campsites in the dark.
Saturday 10:00-11:30 AM is the Tour of Trailers, both the Shasta and Airstream groups are participating.
Saturday at 12:00 Noon, on site 86, is the Airstream Group Pot-Luck Lunch. Bring a coverd dish to share and a chair. Then enjoy the afternoon and evening with your family. The Shasta Group Pot-Luck is at 5:30 PM.
Sunday at 10:00 AM is the Airstream Sunday Brunch, on site 101. Bring something to share and a chair. Check out isn't until 3:00 PM, so come socialize and say good by before packing up to head back home.

You may want to copy, paste and print this schedule.

If you would like to Post what Pot-Luck coverd dish you are planning to bring, for Saturday at Noon, it would be helpful. Thanks

McKinney on Lake Allatoona

Please stop by site 86 to pick up your "Tour of Trailers" participation tag for your trailer. Attach it to the outside of your trailer in plain view, if you agree to have visitors come by between 10:00-11:30 on Saturday. Also pick up a printed schedule of planned activities, so you will know where to be, what to bring, and what time to be there. The book exchange table will be there as well, if you want a book to read in your free time. The pot-luck lunch has been planned for Noon on Saturday, so you can enjoy the rest of the day and evening camping. See you soon.

McKinney on Lake Allatoona

Spread the camping rally information about McKinney, while you are at Falluminum next week. Maybe there a few more people who want to come enjoy another weekend of camping before it gets cold outside.

We just returned home from James Island County Park Campground near Charleston, SC. Even though our trailer door was closed and secured with a bungie cord, somehow it sprung open,destroyed the bungie, punched a hole in the trailer, and bent the door!! I have been reading, on the Forum, how to bend the door back into shape and sharing the instructions with my husband. He is working on it today. Wish us luck!

Sorry about the damage, While referbing my 1976 I installed a small barrel latch just above the belt line trim. It is very unnoticeable and secures the door while transit. I will be in spot 112 if you want to see what it looks like. See you at Altoona .

McKinney on Lake Allatoona

We had a small Hehr hinged compartment door with frame that we put where the hole was punched in the side of the trailer. It actually looks nice there. We will now try the ratchet strap technique to gently bend the door.
The door handle is relatively new and was working and locking properly. I suspect that the rubber door seal may have come loose and that air was able to force it's way under the door going down the expressway. Our running lights have also stopped working, so now we also need to find the loose connection. Oh the joy of vintage trailers!

On a happier note We were almost side swiped in downtown Charleston, by a girl wearing a headset and totally oblivious to the fact that we were right next to her! My husband's quick reflexes and years of defensive driving diverted disaster. Other than a pulled muscle in my back, we and our truck are unscathed.

Looking forward to seeing you all at McKinney. Don't forget to bring an appetizer for the social and a covered dish for the pot-luck lunch.

McKinney on Lake Allatoona

Sorry to hear that you will be unable to attend. Your campsite #99 was quickly taken by another Vintage Shasta.
I hope a few more Airstreams will make reservations. There are sites available in 105-117 area. Site 108, a pull through with RV electric, is now also available. We still are repairing our trailer, but we will be there even if we have to strap the door closed for travel.
I see that many of you were finally able to get sites at Falluminum. Have a great time and see you in a couple of weeks.

The campground map shows that site 96 has just become available for the first weekend in November get together. Any takers?

I just made and froze a 9"x12" pan of Lazagna for the covered dish social on Saturday at 12:00 Noon. I will also be bringing a huge can of Italian green beans. We have a large folding table, some nesting chairs and lunch trays, which will be available to use; considering there isn't a pavilion at McKinney. See you soon.

Wish we could go, but we have a family reunion in Mentone, Al that weekend. We'll be at the reunion with our Airstream though.
