Well, So far we have 5 RSVP'd yes and an additional one. So total so far is 6 ? If you haven't made your reservations yet, please do and post the site number.

Here is the info I have so far for the 6 possibly 7 visitor sites together (more available through out park) Thanks to Woodja for having them set aside!:

Site #
10
12 Woodja Pete & Geneva
14 Wxbuoy Dave & Felicia
15
16
18
158?

own Jomama Billy & Jaci

Jomama owns a site near the visitor area and can give us the local scoop. So Jomama, what's the local scoop?

Was working on a rally add/banner. Any artistic help would be greatly appreciated! Any idea's for a cheesy t-shirt?

Scoop on TCPC

The plateau is beautiful in May - lots of plants in full bloom, and the weather is great.
All lots have full hook-up except no cable for TV. The visitors' lots have gravel drive-ways, concrete patios with picnic tables and are close to the clubhouse.
The clubhouse has a really nice fully-equipped kitchen, ice-maker, large screen TV, wifi, etc. There are also restrooms with hot showers. There is a large grill and picnic tables on the outside along with a few games such as shuffle board and horse shoes. The park has hiking trails and a small lake stocked with fish. We are asked to keep our pets on a leash, but there are plenty of walking areas.
Cumberland State Park is a 15-20 minute drive away and has a buffet-style restaurant - catfish is the specialty on Fridays. Very reasonable. Crossville is another 10 minutes down the road.
An earlier post said it was not wise to follow GPS directions into the park. So true! We were not pulling the time when we decided to follow the GPS off of 127 coming from the south, and we ended up on a pig trail where there wasn't even room for our car to turn around. We had to back out, and we thanked our lucky stars that we didn't have the trailer behind us. We have been told that a towing company is on call in the area and charges $200 to get you out. Must be in kahoots with GPS!
We look forward to meeting all of you.
Billy and Jaci

Thanks for all the great info!

Depending on what time folks get there maybe we should do the catfish buffet on Friday or just have some grills ready to burn some meat

Looking forward to it!

Nice idea. We had the first Classic Moho Rally in 2000 at Mystic Srpings FLA Airstream park. It was a few of the first members of AIFORUMS. We had 6 Motorhomes and a trailer show up. None of us had ever seen more than one classic to that point so it was a superb weekend. We learned all about air bags, riveting, mechanical repairs and so on.
The "Mystic 7" Airstream Rally was the first Forums Rally ever.

Can you send me anything you have on the origin one? I want to make this an annual event and was thinking of Mystic springs next year.

Thanks again for the info!!!

WxBuoy,

We may have finally found our Classic Airstream!
Current plan is to pickup the 310 on Monday 29APR13. DW and I will take a couple of days to get her home and identify and prioritize any issues.

If we are successful in getting her roadworthy in 2 1/2 weeks, would like to join up with our fellow "Alumi-maniacs" and attend the rally.

I hope there will be an available campsite on such short notice.

cesalie2: Hope you can make it!! Drop me a line if you need anything. I am in Memphis as well. Although, the only real knowledge I have about classic aristreams is who to call in a pinch (steve/Brad)

I am in the same mode trying to get our ready as well. If you are good, we can do a caravan out. I will be bringing all the emergency tools and stuff ( I am way to anal retentive that way).

So what/were did you find????????

1984 Airstream 310 Limited
Initially, appears to be in good shape. PO had quite a bit of maintenance performed when they acquired the coach several years ago.

Btw, I am way too anal retentive as well...carry way too much tools, parts and equipment..." Just in case"

Sounds like a great find!

Ours will be a moving shell for the rally. We have it mostly gutted and are working on resealing leaks and replacing window gaskets. Hopefully we will have the new floor down before the rally! If not, it will just be painted plywood LOL!

We take it over to the local RV park every week-end we are in town to work on it.

On another note, were do you get your current RV serviced her in the Memphis area?

WxBuoy,

Have not found a RV Service Center I could recommend as yet. To date have performed the majority of maintenance on the chassis and Moho systems myself.
There is a mobile RV Technician I would recommend (he only works on the RV systems not the chassis) as he replaced my rooftop AC unit after my accident.

Town and Country RV Service
Barry Smith
901-859-4446
townandcountryrvservice.com

I am still seeking a recommended mechanic (word of mouth)...until then by necessity I am becoming a proficient "shade tree mechanic". Am very grateful to have found this forum. The information on this site has bailed me out on many occasions.

Ps: I'm blown away by Keyair's craftsmanship and the wise advice from the many members
