Canadian newbies here, we are booked on site #68 and are looking forward to meeting you and experiencing your southern hospitality. Can you tell us about any plans for the gathering so we can bring meals or other necessities to contribute. Is there a schedule of any sort?

DebnJon,

Welcome to Alumalina fall edition. I think Sandlapper will post more later. It's a fun rather informal get together where we share a bit of stories, cooking, campfire time, lots of tire kicking and Aluminum.

The State Park allows a nice central gathering area and it turns out pretty darn nice.

Gary

Do we have an official wait list?? I'm currently booked in a site, but the old '57 may not be road ready as originally hoped. Still have a few weeks, so we'll see how we stand in early Sept. Would just like to know who's waiting for a spot.

Welcome DebnJon, glad to have you down our way. We will be sure you get an extra helping of our famous southern hospitality. Heck, we may even be able to scare up an extra possum for you to skin out.

We will be posting a schedule of sorts, along with some other info, real soon. Rally time is just around the corner.

Gary......almost time to hook up.

John

Greetings from "Flowdah". Wanting to get some of that low country barbecue after getting our fill of some fresh road kill possum. Please put Wendy and me down on the stand-by list. We have a 25' AS TT and should be able to get into any space. This will be our first forum rally.

Pat and Wendy Conway, tel 813 335-3493, wpconway2217@yahoo.com

Thanks, Pat

Will do Pat.

Wateree State Park is a great, lakeside park that will accomadate even the largest rigs. Paved roads/sites with water/elec and trees. And the rally ain't bad either. You will like it.

Sandpaper,

Can I hook up this weekend just for practice please? Maybe knock the surface rust off the rotors. Darn, before I can do that gotta fix a case of bottom trim droopitis rash.

Can at least test the firewood supply this weekend and see if it burns.

Gary

Cast Iron cooking anyone?

Folks,

Wish it was closer but got a few weeks to go so this might be a decent time to kick the coals under your cast iron cooking. We've had some fun with the old black DO's, skillets and griddles making several fine contributions.

So are you gonna bring your iron, heat it up and share a bit? I know Linda wants to make bean soup again, oh yeah gotta have some corn bread too. Hope we'll be cooking it on my steel camp tripod, it just looks right at a gathering. We've made a couple of eggstravagant egg bakes in my DO's and that is on tap for breakfast. I'd still like to make pancakes too. That big griddle I have needs exercised and a new DO cooking table that brings things up to a nice working height, sorry only room for 2 DO's but we can share as possible.

Jon (chillpoints) stepped in for Maggie this spring and I hope we can see and taste some samples from both DO bread chefs, each favoring their own style. If you missed Jon's cook station this spring, he has a real neat camp kitchen setup. This spring MPJ heated up a new DO and we tasted that success.

Camping and cooking, made for each other.

Gary

I will have the DO along, and plan on doing some bread. Hope the weather is cooperative.

Will also have stashed in the freezer a large jar of homemade jam.

Florida 55,

Chuck thank you for keeping the map up for the fall event up to date. I am sure there will be black trailers turning to silver by the time we check into the Wateree State Park. Anne and I look forward to seeing you and Susan and catching up with you all and your travels this year.

In six short weeks from this Friday the Fall Alumalina will be in full swing, possum bog, Rita, picking, mountain creek water and great fellowship sitting around the campfire. The big plus some of our cell phones won't work around the main campfire...YES.

Sandlapper(King Possum) asked me to start gathering up the slow fat possums so we will have plenty of fresh protein for the pot. I understand some of the folks get upset about fresh road kill so we can only bring walking critters this fall.

I hope some of the Low Country attendees will bring some the half shell possums this year? I guess we will have to wait and see?

Take care and we will see you down the road.

Remember we give a hoot.

Big Hooter

Oh goodness. I am coming to meet you nice people, but also to see what you have and ask questions and learn more before buying, but i think i've found what i want. i'm sure this is posted in the wrong place, but i kind of have a trust level with people who are so excited to go to an airstream rally! can you point me to some threads that tell what to look for in a 1975 sovereign 31? I do think it's over priced. He says all original electric and plumbing. red flag, no? but i also need to find threads that tell me what questions to ask. and if it gets that far, is there anyone south of knoxville who might look at it for me? i did look in the sovereign area of the forums, but specific threads would be very helpful. :-) :-) :-)!

As Sandlapper knows, we leave the opossums in peace, so I will be bringing vegetables and fruits to the power grazing events. Looking forward to it.

This will be Bessie's first time out as a camper. She will serve that purpose until we get our AS. Much more room than our Volvo wagon. :-)

OK, let's kick this thing off....

...rally time is just around the corner.

We will post the details a bit later, and have paper copies for everyone when you arrive. In the mean time this should get you get you started.

THURSDAY :
For the early arrivals, our fabuloso, super premo hot dog banquet. We have 100 dogs (donated) , chili, some fixins. We'll need some buns and anything else you want to toss in there.

FRIDAY :
Our really nearly almost famous possum bog. We will have it ready for supper, around 6 pm, you just focus on getting to the park safe and sound. If you have some easy side to bring/share, or desert, that will be great. Make it easy on yourself. We have a big pot that makes a lot of bog. And remember, it tastes just like chicken.
Friday nite is open mic nite. Please introduce yourself, tell us your story.

SATURDAY:
Pot luck breakfast. Bring your favorite breakfast dish to share. There will also be dutch oven/cast iron cooking delights, campfire pancakes, and cowboy coffee.
Also Sat morning we will have a couple of informal seminars, topics yet to be determined.
Lunch will be on your own.
Sat afternoon is the best part....open house, general paroozing and hanging out, and enjoy a visit with Rita.
Sat nite potluck supper. Bring a favorite dish to share. After supper we will have our raffle.

Once again we will gather in the big open area in the center of the loop. Campfire every nite, enjoy a great Carolina evening.


We will get details posted soon as to specific times and needs.

We are so looking forward to seeing everyone again, and welcoming new folks into the group.

Almost time to hook up.

John

Lisaslists20,

For inspecting the trailer, somewhere there is a list of volunteer inspectors but might just meet your inspector at Alumalina. Time will tell.

Beth,

Got to visit the metropolis of York SC today and the town was turned out for Yorkfest. All manner of show and tell and seller of goods both simple and astonishing. There was even a guy there selling old smooth wood articles.

Hey Dude, was that candid camera??? You slipped that one by me. I was giving my best smile style profile to a potential customer.

In between selling and waiting, I spent the time working on Rally stuff. No matter where I am, or what I'm doing, I'm always dream'n of stream'n.

BTW, sold enough wares to buy a tank or two of diesel fuel and a couple of campsites.

Glad you guys could come up, always a pleasure to see you.

Closer than ever to time to hook up.

John

John,

That's the price you pay for having friends in low places.

Waking up to a cool temp with low humidity what's up with that!
