I see I need to bring a tent and a chair. I assume I need to bring food and some way to prepare it (charcoal? grills provided?) and drinks (water for day and beer for night? - is alcohol allowed in state parks? ) Some kind of bedding and what else? Would my (seriously, i mean really she is) well behaved dog be an encumbrance? I could bring a crate and crate her in the tent when needed... Do people bring some food to share? What else?

I don't think well behaved dogs are allowed. It makes the rest of us with dogs look bad.

Bring everything necessary for sustaining life for however long you are there.

There will be dogs a-plenty, behavior varies.

Lily now has a harness and very short leash for high-stimulation environments, so those who find her alpha-ness particularly obnoxious should have less to worry about this time.

There will be shared meals, and John will post about those.

Going to be fun. Looking forward to it.


Maggie

And the tent would be the pop up variety to add to others to make a larger covered area in the event of rain. It's okay if you don't have one, but if you do, bring it along.
It poured on and off the entire time during spring Alumalina, so the tents were used extensively.

What's the weather like at the fall edition? Looks like equal probability of 90s and 40s, best I can tell from NWS.

Yeah Beth and Chris!

Weather should be pristine - don't expect 40's, end of September should be perfect, guess 80's during day, 60's at night. Campfire weather.

Beth and Chris, congrats on nailing the last site, #65. Georgia was very well represented back in March. A bit of a haul but worth it. As the name of the Park implies, it is on a lake...actually an island, so plenty of water.


We will be posting some details later but expect more of the same. Great folks, in a great setting, nothing less than a great time.


Just a look ahead:

The park is full, last count I think about 40 Airstreams. If you look at Chucks map, the known attendees are in the silver trailers, unknown in the black. A good chance some of the black trailers are actually Airstreamers who are registered with the Park but not on our list.

Last minute change of plans often unfortunately result in some cancellations. So if you need a site, don't give up. Check daily.

If you do need to cancel, the Park requests that we handle the change ourselves if possible. Just exchange the info and $$ with the new owner. That way an Airstreamer gets the site, no one gets the cancellation fee, everyone is happy (except the original owner...they are bummed).

Last March we had a waiting list, maybe we have one this Sept also.. If so, we will post it here, then first come, first served. You can PM me with your cancellation, I will try to hook someone up.

As for the weather, we generally have our best in the Fall. Usually dry,
not hot ,but still on the warm side. Hopefully DRY!!!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

John

Maggie,

Sunny smiles, no frowns, eezy breezy. All good.

Seems no such thing as typical weather anymore, but typically late September is dry, low humidity, highs in 70's , lows in 50's. Perfect for camping, no AC needed, campfire is splendid.

Keep your fingers crossed.

We will want you to share a drink of Jamison with us, for old times sake.

John
