I wear my sunglasses at night


It was about 10pm when we pulled in.
I gotta go exploring more next year.
Rain did kinda make everything look like a lake.

Klattu, I'm teasing you. I had unfair advantage of staying longer and then walking around after the rally. There was so many people to meet and visit with and things to do it went by in a blink of an eye! I hope our Friday this year doesn't have the deluge we had last year. I also got in Thursday night right through the tropical storm warnings that you must have also been listening to. Actually who found me lost and escorted me in from down the road, KPosey? and some others, which I thank you very much for!

What day are you arriving for the rally, GT1963. We are driving over on Thusrday and can easily time our trip to go by Mobile - which is a larger regional AP, to pick someone up. We are only 3 hours (at the most) from Topsail so a detour to the AP is no big issue.

Whow - a fly in rally go'er. Next year we may have a polished DC-3 show up.

Wow!! what a generous offer.

I had originally planned for the 3 - 8 but if Peter can come out for 2 weeks instead of one then we may be rebooking if the site is available. And/or find somewhere nice to do a New Years bash...

Carol, you are right about 108; it does face the fountain. We stayed in 110 over Labor Day and low and behold, a couple from our town of Fayetteville were in 108. We had never met them but started talking to them and they mentioned where they were from. Anyway, the curb side of that side is wide open and faces the fountain as your photo of Healthchick's Airstream shows. It is great for the sun exposure in the winter and it is a pull-through, too.

Klattu did sneak in under cover. We woke up Friday morning and found them across from us.

Wheel Interested, glad to have been of service. Anything for a fellow Airstream nut...oh, um...person...no, um...enthusiaist. Yea, that's it! I thought you did very well to make it from Michigan and not get lost until you got to Destin!

On that note, if you do a mapquest or google for the directions, remember there is a Top Sail RV Park that is actually a place to buy and work on campers, not the state park!

Hey,

Easy to get L & Ls if you need.

You are not actually thinking that I am a pilot or anything fancy like that are ya???

I could probably pick some up for you at a souvenir store Any particular angle that you would like


What are L & L's -(I live in a box and don't know these things) - Soon I will be living in Aluminum for a spell - and I hear it transmits smart cells directly through the antenna - but I don't have one on the LadyBug - so I will still be in the dark....

L & L - I believe that would be Latitude and Longitude but maybe I should wait for Klattu to answer that.

I would use Lat and Long. BTW, tasking a satellite is costly (government or private) and air photo from a plane can be as cheap as $300 - know of one done of a business one time (not me actually but a friend) and that was only 2 years ago after Katrina. BUT - last year I had hoped to get an AIRSTREAM group picture - now that would be do-able, any one else????

clancy_boy,

Are are talking about everyone pitching in $10-$30 each so we can get an aerial picture of the group? If so, count me in.

During the peak of summer, you can get a ride from Ft.Walton in a helicopter...or you used to could.
Maybe we could find something like that.

I was thinking along the lines of renting a bucket lift from a local rent-all place and sending a person up to get a group photo with several or all of the trailers in a shot. It would take some coordination and time but would be neat. Maybe not all would want to unhook to move but several could to get a great shot.

Just a thought, me dreaming.....

Just a thought...not as formal, but since almost everyone would be there, a group shot could be taken early on at the potluck, perhaps from a ladder for height.~G

A photo would be great but the view on the Topsail website barely shows campers because of the trees. I'm sure you would see some but many would be blocked from above. I see no harm in trying and would be willing to pitch in just don't see how to get them all in.

As far as a group shot - maybe on Sunday time it for a mass departure and get 10 trailers in a shot with all the attendies that can be there. Just looking for one of those classic rally photographs.....

According to destinhelicopter.com, a 20 minute ride for two is $175.00. With digital photography, we could take the SOB'S out of the picture!
