They're planning on coming. I'm a little bit jealous of the Mardi Gras parade pics she's posting.

We currently have five confirmed and one maybe. I'm sure we can get the ten, we're three months out.

Matt,

Just wanted to let you know that I did call and make a reservation.I did not mention that it was for an Airstream Rally though.Didn't want to get anyone too freaked out.

Tom

Wish I could do that. I could only negotiate one day off from work (the 12th), and have an endocrinologist's appointment scheduled for the 15th that has alredy been postponed once. So I'll arrive the 12th, and leave the 14th, making this my shortest-duration camping trip since I bought my Airstream.

I just called and confirmed a 2 night stay, arriving late on the 12th - departing Sunday.

We hope to bring over the '63 if we can get a few things done. If not then we will need a loooong site for the 34' and truck.

That's the great thing about my Interstate; the shortest site at Lincoln Parish Park is only 32 feet (unlucky site 13), according to the map, and my Interstate (23 feet) will fit it just fine. When I called for a reservation, the guy on the phone didn't ask about length, so when I check in, I'll make a point of asking for a short space in order to give folks like you all the bigger spaces.

Lincoln Parish Park only allows you to reserve "a" spot, not "that" spot. Once you get here, you pick out the one you want out of the available sites left. I've begged and pleaded for them to let us reserve a block of sites, but they won't do it like that. If you look at the map AWCheif posted, the pull-through on the bottom end of the loop is a big spot and I'm hoping we can all gather around the end like we did last fall. Those are the ones with the better views anyway.

Last year we also took advantage of the shorter length of Doug and Maggies Interstate and re-purposed the unused portion of their campsite driveway to set out the tables for the potluck meals. I'm also jealous of the ability to pull over to the side of the scenic drive and easily open up and enjoy the views over a sandwich or something and not have to find 50+ feet of open curb...

However if we get the cabin, then we can move into there for the meals and gathering times.

Which brings me to a little funny phone call I got this morning. I sure didn't need to see here that you guys made your reservations, the guy you talked to on the phone called me. He started asking me if so and so was part of my group, there's people coming at on different days and from some weird area codes.....

Mister I don't know these guys personally - yet. All I can tell you is their handles on the forums and what city they say they're coming from. They'll just get here when they get here and leave when they leave. I know he means well and he wants it all done right.

I spoke with Don, with all of these calls in a short period of time he is probably thinking there is some sort of invasion

The one time we stayed there, arrival was pretty late, very dark and the best site I could find was about 1/2 way down on the right. It was long enough for the 34' but dropped off very steep on each side and the rear.

Back up 2', get out and look...
Back up 2', get out and look...
repeat until the entire campground is mad at the rattlin' diesel...

Sooooo, how does the campground know we have reached our count of 10 to achieve Rally status? Is this done after the fact?

Tom

I'm keeping up with the thread and the RSVP page, so everyone please make sure to keep your status updated to help facilitate that. After we reach ten I'll go down and fill out the paperwork required.

News!


I found out today (February 28) that starting tomorrow (March 1) the campground is raising their rates from $20 to $25 a night. Still full hookups, they have added wifi. So...

If you're planning on coming - either April or September - and haven't made reservations yet, today would be a great day to do that!
