Anyone in Western Kentucky?

As a new AS owner, since October, I don't know any other AS owners in this area. I am doing a major rebuild of my 51 Flying cloud and would like to meet folks in the area who have done similar projects. I know of a couple of Forum members doing this, but they are 1,000s of miles from me. Am I all alone out here in the boonies?

I guess we could have a really small rally out here in the sticks

Hiya,

I suspect that I am about the closest to you. I am in Carbondale Il, maybe 2 hours away. Maybe we can have a forum mini mini rally over on the Ohio River somewhere, say like at Cave in Rock come early spring. That would also put it about 3 hrs or so from both St Louis or Nashville if any of those folks want to join in. Actually, that kinda sounds fun to me...

I have a 1968 Trade Wind, its in fairly good shape (I think) so I am doing lots of little projects rather than a big one.

Good reminder for everybody to mark their spot on the forums map! Then folks will know where you are... and if nobody is nearby now, maybe soon someone will pop-up ~

I'm up for a micro rally in the sticks. That is if you're inviting us motorhome guys (can't really add much to the Flying Cloud restoration other than to tell you how cool it is). Maybe Lincoln Lake or Land Between the Lakes in the spring?

Any weekend except the 11th and 12th would be good for me. I may still have nothing but an aluminum tent, but what the heck. I went cemping with less.

I am sure you are not alone out there in the boonies.
I am in Michigan but I make a pilgrimage to Eddyville every year.
We stay at the US Army Corps of Engineers campground, The Canal Campground, right on Lake Barkley.
I would love to have someone to come see while we are down there!

I see by their web page the Kentucky WBCCI is planing a rally at the Canal Campground July 20-23 this year. That is actually about 30 minutes from my house. Let me know when you are coming down I would be glad to meet eith you.

Cave-in-rock and the LBL are both about the same distance from my house and neither is far. If you guys are really interested in a mini-rally I could do whatever leg work needs to be done. Of course anyone else would be welcome too. Motorhome/trailer vintage/new doesn't matter I would just like to meet some other folks who have been bitten by this aluminum bug.

Greg,
I have been camping at KY. Dam Village since before I even knew it.
It was all done in an Airstream.
I have been bitten by the aluminum numerous times, (5 to be exact).
My brother-in-law still tows my Dad's 1973 31-footer that he bought brand new in 1973. We both tow to Lake Barkley in May. Usually the week or two before Memorial.
Now that I have little ones in school I will most likely wait until early June.
There is another member on here, SCF31, that goes to Lake Cumberland every year. He lives near there.
I would love to have a mini-rally at LBL or something like that. I have participated in planning a rally this past summer. I would be willing to do what I can from here. Who knows, maybe we can get a caravan from MI and OH?
This sounds like the making of a rally to me!
PS I have added you to my buddy list! I can always use a familiar face in W. KY.!

Maybe something during a weekend?

I may be able to make a four day weekend out of a trip "down home".
I forgot to mention that I have "kin" in Calvert City!
My dad was from Lone Oak, outside of Paducah.
I just may get my brother-in-law to come along as well.
I also have some good friends in northern Ohio and I would love to show them the beauty of LBL in the spring!
Let's do it!

I am all excited about this now. A forum rally in my neighborhood. I hope a lot of folks decide to join us.
Lou, I don't know the purpose of the "buddy-list". What is it for?
