We reserved Wed and Thurs in site 13 and Sat and Sun in site 9. Hoping that a Fri site opens up or we'll be hiding out somewhere.....looking forward to the fun.

You'll be able to find someplace to squeeze in on Friday night, I'm sure.

I have offered to share my site with Terry & Marie, if they are able to come, and if not you are welcome to it. :)

The sites seem about half a city block long....or, at least, that's what it seems when you're small. :)

Terry. That can of "Creamed Possum" is BEYOND DISGUSTING. (Where can I buy one....I have some folks that I'd like to send it to as a "special Christmas gift...) Hug to Marie.... Barry

Jay/Cathie,
Glad to have you joining us and also glad to turn site #9 from black to silver. Chuck the map keeper will break out the paint brush any day now.

I can't say with any authority but it is very likely we can squeeze you in somewhere Friday night.

Just adding a "hello ya'll" so that this thread will show up on my subscribed list.

Sandlapper, I will check in closer to March to see if you need a Japanese refill.

Reservations in Black - SOB Trailers
 
As a first time attendee I was looking at the map and seeing that the poor SOB reserved sites are far outnumbered by Silver Airstreams. I see that a few of the SOB's are coming because their Airstreams are under renovation, etc. How many are pure strangers?

Would I be correct in assuming that we should all be graciousness itself to non-streamers and invite them over with a view to getting them infected with Aluminitus?

I of course wish to fit in well with more veteran attendees so any hints to allow me to do that would be gratefully appreciated.

Sincerely, Paula

BAB 11-03-2014 05:53 PM

My experience at 4 Alumalina's has been that we've been pretty welcoming. I'm sure we overwhelm some of those in those huge Voltage/Intimidator 5th wheelers who show up with exterior kitchens, boats, jet skis and electric golf carts. (What is the deal with all these folks who have electric golf carts to get around campgrounds??) Heck, if they brought John a possum, or brought Maggie some stone ground flour for her next DO treat they'd be welcome around our campfire, right??

Lily&Me 11-03-2014 05:59 PM

Some of those black are actually silver, Paula......sleepers, I call them. :)

Airstreams that have not yet revealed themselves. :innocent:

Trust me, you will meet great people and have a wonderful time. :)

Paula,

Read a lot of your stuff and really like the Rosie, looking forward to meeting you.

Hope you enjoy campfire time too.

I am glad that everyone lets us join in. We did not have our AS at any of the rallies but knew we wanted an airstream. These get togethers are for us to learn about AS trailers and to see the big family that they make. We bought the truck first and if all goes good might have our new home at this function. This is a get together of liked minded people does not matter what you pull of live in just have the right mindset and you are welcome.

Silver Fern 11-04-2014 12:28 PM

John, we see that there are no longer any available sites per Reserve America. If anyone needs to drop out, please let us know! We'll be making our way back up north from Florida and that weekend would work out great for us. Nancy and Carl McDowell

sandlapper 11-04-2014 06:22 PM

Well hello Nancy and Carl.....new trailer, new name!!! Good for you.

We have indeed filled the park, and have a waiting list, which we will put you on. Love to have all the Alumalina alumni that can to join us.

Keep an eye on the thread and the park site, cancellations come up, especially near the date.

BTW.. have you adjusted to having 4' less space in the new trailer??

John

sandlapper 11-04-2014 06:33 PM

Waiting list
 
Ronnie B---Architect of the almost famous possum bog.

Silver Fern---Carl and Nancy, Alumalina alumni from the very first gathering.


Friends, remember to let us know if/when you need to cancel. Hope no one needs to, but if you do, Post it, or drop me a PM. No need to go through the park, they prefer we handle it amongst ourselves.

And as Beetlebob said, EVERYONE is welcome, we love you all. No better place to be for a weekend with like minded people.

Alumalina 2015 Spring Edition Map Update 11-5-2014
 
It's been a few days since I've checked this thread. Sunnygirl and I have been cleaning up and winterizing the Airstream. It was sad to put her away yesterday but it won't be long before we'll be pulling her out again in early January to head for the Canopener rally.

Welcome Cathie & Jay, I've put you on the map. All of you who have joined the wait list be patient and keep checking both Reserve America (the campground reservation site) and this Airforums thread. People change plans as the date nears. In the past people on the wait list this early typically get a spot. Good fortune comes to those who are patient and when you come to Lake Wateree in March you'll experience one of the best Airstream rallies in the USA.

Below is a link to the updated Alumalina 2015 Spring Edition Campground Map.

Alumalina 2015 Spring Edition Map
