Unfortunately, Janice the potter and I will not be able to attend this year. John, maybe next year. Have the best year possible, weather permitting! Bill and Janice (Airdreamers).

Ate lunch at Bruce’s Fabulous Foods in downtown Marion today. Bruce and Barbara are stuck in Ohio, he had a heart attack just before boarding for return home flight. (Hmm, MASA or SkyMed might coulda brought them home, if only. . .) Bruce and Barbara are self-employed, need our business to keep going! So, family and friends keeping his fabulous food going out the door. Take-out only and still worthwhile. Reuben was perfect, Cajun spicy sausage in a roll was very good, and all the cheese cakes, of course excellent.

Highly recommended while here at Alumalina: GoGo’s Cinnamon Rolls in Old Fort, right on 70 next to Frisbee’s Supermarket. Great folks. Great product. Limited hours, but worth it!

Hi. If anyone has a space at Canopener Rally but can’t make it, please contact me . My husband and I would love to go but I have not been lucky enough to get a space at Topsail hill. Thank you. We are in S64 here at Alumalina. Britt. 6783784240

Alumalina count through the years?

Hey John,
Just curious on number of rigs each year for Alumalina.
It might be interesting to post a list in the pavilion for all to see.

Thanks, Ron

John and Susan, God bless your incredible effort in orchestrating such a successful Alumalina. Thank you to Terry and all your other helpers. Much appreciated. See you when we parooze York later this year. And thanks for not running up my lost credit card to the limit so we can buy fuel to get home. You rock!! Janeene & Jim

Thanks everyone for a wonderful rally; my first of this size.

Lesson learned - for my first Internationals this year, show up two weeks early to get a decent space!

Two quotes to remember from this event:

" Ian.... could you come up to the front after dinner; I could use your help with something ..." -- John Leake
" Ian; I've read your posts. You can do the installs just fine!" -- Phillip Enoch

I had some technical issues with my drone but was able to put together a short video- hopefully everyone gets to see their camper! We had a great time, thanks to John & Terry & all the people behind the scenes for a wonderful rally!

And make sure you click all the way to their road closures and not just see the one re: a closure near Roanoke and think you’re good. You will NOT be good! Haha where is my bottle of bourbon???? Yes, I had to do a harrrowing turn around at the road closure at Craggy Gardens with tons of cars parked on side of road. The ranger said two other Airstreams also enjoyed this fun earlier in the day. No signs to warn before going that direction, too. Oy! It was closed due to ice. (Yes, already!)

I’m at Crabtree Falls Campground up on the parkway tonight. I’ll be rolling back down tomorrow to park early. Then Ernie will join me via a flight into Charlotte on Sunday. His first Alumalina! See everyone soon!

How was the campground ? We hiked there in early spring before it opened for the season. We’d like to check it out

A very, VERY quick update......

Arrived home late yesterday afternoon, didn't even unhook or unpack or put the rig up. It's still sitting in the yard.

Opened the trailer door, grabbed a bottle of single malt and a twelve-finger glass, took an 11-hour nap.

Gonna be a day or so, but I'll catch up and file a report.

For now, the short report...............Fabulous time.... because of all the folks that came and the love that was shared. Thank you.

John

Hi John,
Sorry we weren't able to attend, but looks like pretty good turn out this year! How many ended up attending? We intend to make it next year.

Thank you, John and all of the helpers who made this a great Alumalina rally. We enjoyed every day. We saw old friends and made some new Airstream friends. John, you deserve a long rest. Frank and Reba
