Well, Jack, it certainly IS a mystery, even if there are no clues.

Is it a well-known person?

Isn't asking if it is a well known person asking for a clue/hint?

Of COURSE it is. But isn't anyone else curious?

Jack dangles this little tidbit in front of a stir-crazy, sick and tired of winter person, and I'm not supposed to be curious??

Thumbs up Rally Protocol

[QUOTE=Silvertwinkie]I wholeheartedly agree. This is not a stale pomp and circumstance type rally. It's really, really fun.



Since this will be our first rally...what are they like? I'm assuming it is informal gatherings...maybe around a campfire or two. It looks from the pictures that there is at least one potluck style meal. Can someone please offer an idea of what to expect? I assume there is something like a walk-through of everyone's Airstream. What else do we need to know?

Since we really only have a weekend there isn't a big agenda. This year I'm hoping to see if we can have a movie on Friday night at a campsite. Saturday you can go around and meet your fellow forum buddies in the AM (now remember some of us sleep in ), after lunch its trailer tour time and those who want can open up their units for tours. Saturday just after 6PM we will do a potluck and after cleanup its campfire time. Sunday, more time to visit and see trailers and usually by noon many have departed or will be soon on their way.

The campground has a playground for the kids, a bath house and a lake, although no swimming was allowed last year (I don't know why).

That's pretty much all the formality. I usually make sure I stop by and say hi to everyone, and will be taking pictures of people and trailers. If you are new to Airstreams there will be lots of folks to ask questions of. Maybe someone needs a hand with a repair, just ask.

The park is very nice and quiet, well off the beaten path. Lots of looks from other campers at all the Airstreams as they do their evening walks. The park is dog and kid friendly.

We have had some giveaways and other surprises so we will see what happens there. Oh, and those of you who were last year's attendees, be sure to bring your site signs that Zamboni so graciously supplied last year.....you do need to change the 2004 to 2005. I'll have to head out to H.D. and pick up a matching number.

Our first trip is in 3 weeks to a unit rally up in Springfield Ill. The Classic will come home in 2 weeks to get dewinterized and Walbernized. Wow, June will be here before you know it!

Regards,

Jack

All kidding aside, you are LUCKY to have this rally be your first.

We have done a forum rally (although last year we missed this one because of repairs on our unit) and we have done two WBCCI rallies.

They are both fun, and both VERY different.

What is the most fun of ALL to me, however, is staying at Forest Preserves vs. busy campgrounds. I say this because my children are grown,a nd now it's just nme, my hubby and our two weird little dogs. (note: dogs must be watched VERY closely and kept on leash, for their own protection. Who knows what size critter might be in that bunch of trees at the forest preserve?)

There's nothing like falling asleep listening to a hoot owl.. and watching bats swoop!

Now, if you have kids, you might opt for the busy campground!

Danger....

Last year Tony was confronted by a knife yeilding racoon, and as we sat up late the first night, a yetti tripped over the propane tanks, and hit the window, sending Tony clear to the back of the trailer in 1.3 seconds.

Also, when Don (Panub) was napping in his lounge chair one evening, he woke up to find a racoon sitting on the table next to him.

Lots of fun wildlife.....

OH, and there was that incident where the critters threw leftover food from the pot luck into the woods... that was very strange....

That wasn't strange...that was a chocolate milk induced attempt at getting some coon stew for the next day's breakfast (insert Deliverence banjo here..... )

Moments from previous Midwest Rallys.

Chris explains to Patty that the telescope is always pointed up...never into trailer windows..the look in Patty's eyes says she's not buying it!

I think I know who the mystery person is. Something connected to exasperation. . . anticipation. . . exhilaration. Am I close, Jack? Out of consideration, we shouldn't bring this person into the limelight, but I think I know. Shh! I won't tell. Let's all do our own silent guess and then find out if we were right or wrong. To make the game work, we need a way to send in our candidate for mystery guest and have it tabulated and saved for the record, but not publicized. I'm not techy enough to know how to do that. And I cannot even be there to share the fun and chocolate milk. Drat!
