TAC The Airstream Club Rally May 2011

Roosevelt State Park in Pine Mountain, Georgia was where TAC members congregated, in area five's picnic pavilion each night at 5:30 PM, for appetizers and socializing. Callaway Gardens was nearby, http://www.callawaygardens.com/gardens/georgia-gardens.aspx , but they were hosting a special water skiing event for the Memorial Day weekend. So most of us found other sources of camping entertainment. Several families did venture out to Wild Animal Safari http://www.animalsafari.com/safari/ for a face licking good time! Some folks hiked the Pine Mountain trails, while others rode their bikes or scooters around the campground. Relaxing with a good book and dabbling in water colors, was what I chose to do. One day I gave a quick,sewing session, lesson, for making vintage trailer awnings. Quite a few campers brought along their pets, so doggie walks led to socializing, picture taking, and tours of trailers. Several evenings, marshmallows were roasted over campfires, and movies were projected on the side of an Airstream. The vintage trailer group, on the bottom of the loop, got together several mornings for breakfast; eating waffles, pancakes, bacon and other deliciously fattening fare! Quite a few children, ages ranging from 4-11, kept us all entertained with their bug and frog catching, chalk drawings, blueberry gathering and their observations of the bats nesting in the rafters of the picnic pavilion. Through word of mouth, chalk messages in the road pointing the way, and the original Rally plan set out on the Forum, we managed to have a great time. Be sure to plan ahead for the Fall TAC Rally in Georgia.

Shipping A Rope and Pole Trailer Awning

A small to medium sized vintage trailer awning will fit in a medium, flat rate, priority mail, USPS, box. It will ship anywhere in the continental USA for $11.00. It is a tight squeeze, as you can see, but this 8' x 8', rope and pole, awning, is now on it's way.
