This Rally is now 13 years old.
We started the "forum" Rally tradition in 2002, with a Mystic Springs Airstream park Rally of 7 units. It was an informal get together to learn more about our Motorhomes.
Most of us had Classic Airstream mohos and were on an internet chat board called AirstreamForums.
I am member # 005 there. (Now known as AirForums, due to some copyright infringement.)
I think there are near 50,000 members now. Though many are just observers.
After this first rally we had enjoyed it so much , we scheduled a second one in the same park.
Next we moved to parks nearer to Atlanta and increased our attendance and the variety of RVs.
After a few more years we moved the event to Hiawassee, Georgia at the very scenic Georgia Mountain Fair Campgrounds. Set on beautiful Lake Chatuge, the sites are raised on various levels to give almost every site a lake view. Also we had access to a pavillion for meals and such.
This proved to be so successful we quickly grew each Rally. We also spawned a few more Rallys in nearby states. South Carolina and Florida soon were hosting their own similar casual rallys.
The scene at ours grew to include live music, lots of shared "pot luck" food and a "tour of homes". We sometimes included classes on topics of interest. But we found most attendees liked the relaxed lack of a schedule and agenda. So other than the meals and tour, everyone was free to mingle as they chose. e have had campers form as far away as Arizona, Colorado, Vermont and Quebec. Some even came without a trailer, just to walk the tour and decide what kind of Airstream they would want to own.
Now in our 13th year we look forward to many more years with friends old and new, and lots of fun.
Here are a few photos from this past weekend.
Our next one is coming up Oct 23 weekend- called Falluminum ...Join us...no fees other than your campsite rental, its $35 a night. No agenda, no rules, no dues...
