East Coast FOD group

I am wondering if anyone is interested in starting an East Coast FOD group for the purpose of a yearly (or so) rally. I know there is a wonderful group based in the Texas/Arkansas area, but their rallies are a bit far away for us. If you are interested in organizing or joining such a group please post here.

Well, so far we have folks from:

NY, Mass., NJ, Tenn. and GA.

Virginia could be a central location for a rally?

Trust me...that rally, which appeared to have been a great event before it succumbed last year, was as far away from me as it was from you. It takes 8-10 hours for us just to get out of Florida when heading west; we would be half way to Virginia in that time.

Regardless, Aluminum Under the Rainbow hasn’t been held since 2017.

I looked for something in the South and didn't find anything. With the last event being in 2017 that makes sense. I went with the idea that supporting any group east of the Mississippi was worth the effort.

Virginia would be closer than I would have expected. Easy drive from Nashville.

Well there's a great Airstream park in southern Virginia, Highland Haven, that's really beautiful. Only been once but the people were great and very welcoming.

Highland Haven

Yes this is a beautiful campground, we loved it when we went. However, the campsites are individually owned so it would be a challenge to get a number of sites open on a particular date range.

We are interested and our schedule is becoming more flexible.
Would hate to see interest in this die out especially since the FOD event in AR has faded.

What is the reasonable range for travel to get together? VA seems reasonable to us. Have to find a rally park or private park to make it easier. Is the I95 corridor a good starting place?

How about Virginia Highland Haven? They are a very welcoming bunch.

East Coast FOD Rally

OK, we are willing to spend some time on this now. Sounds like a small nod to VA and Highland Haven. We haven't been, but it seems like a reasonable start. We just need a small group to get going I would think.

Of course we need to decide what time of year.

Any time before stink bug season (September-October). We were in northwestern North Carolina at the end of September and we are STILL finding stink bugs in our Airstream—both dead and alive. Never again!!
