Never played cornhole, but I am an avid player of washers!

Will have a set handy this weekend too.

Wow... we're going to do well to get there on Friday night... don't know for sure what we'll be showing up in... but hopefully we'll be there before Saturday morning.

Don't have flags... don't know what we're doing for food yet... life has been more than hectic here... writing from 300 miles from home tonight... been here all weekend... have to take our son to college near Des Moines for an indoc over-night on Thurs nite/Friday... so we'll be there when we can.

Roger, we have been coming up with a similar problem with food. Difficult packing food for our first trip out since we have never been out before, and truely don't know what to bring. Also difficult since our fridge is electric only, and all our food will be in coolers until our refer cools down enough.

I assume we will really over pack since it is our first trip. Live and learn.

Steve

Not trying to tell you what to do but I believe there is a KFC nearby in Leroy. I think I would consider that if it was our first time out and our fridge only ran on electric.

There may be other similar places, but that one came to mind; Just a suggestion!

The fact that it only runs on electric sounds like you have a regular compressor type fridge. Obviously its cool down time will be much faster than the typical RV refrigerators. Since there is a grocery store in town and much bigger one's in Bloomington, you could leave the refrigerated stuff at home and buy it up there. That way you aren't dealing with coolers (although you may need them on the way home).

Jack,

You are correct about my fridge. It is an electric dorm size unit. The way the PO refurbished this trailer was for a comfortable sleeping area with a very large bath/shower area. He didn't add a gas refer since he wanted a particular layout. We plan on having most of our food frozen to it stays cold

Amy did a dry run packing of it today and it worked fine as long as we keep our soft drinks and large containers in the cooler.

Steve

A person I know has a regular fridge like you. He had it set up with an inverter to keep it running while traveling. I'm not sure what size you would need but that is another possibility.

Inverter -- interesting idea Bill. Steve would have to rely on electric sites having an electric only fridge, so he would do less boondocking and less need to recharge via driving (slow process that that is -- 150-200 miles minimum required). Alternators don't have a lot of extra capacity and the distance thru the umbilical is pretty significant. I wouldn't look for a lot of amperage back in the trailer while underway and an alternator would probably result in further loss. What is the fridge amperage demand? Any damage if doesn't get enough? Might be a good topic for a separate thread and getting lewster involved.

I plug in my Safari in the driveway and have the fridge on 24 hours before a trip if I can. It's slow ... but I'll leave it unplugged and start the fridge on propane if I want it to cool down real fast!

If I plug into my 110 household current, is that enough to get the fridge strting to cool a day before I leave?

Yep, that should be ok. I'll start my fridge up on electric 24 hours before I depart. It's plenty cold by the time I start loading food the next day or the evening before.

For you first timer's heading for Moraine View here are a couple of driving tips. Once you exit at the LeRoy exit, there will be signs pointing the way to Moraine View. The easiest thing to miss though is one turn as you travel through town. That's a right turn where there is a Casey's gas/convenience store on the corner. I remember missing that turn on year 2. So follow the signs, and watch for that right turn at the corner where the Casey's is. After that point just watch the signs.

One other point is that the local gas stations are somewhat tight for maneuvering when you have a trailer in tow. If you are pulling anything over 25' in length, you may want to pick up gas at a station before you exit at LeRoy, or go back after you unhitched to refuel.

Other tidbits....there are two dump stations in the park. As you enter the park you will pass a station on your left. There is also a dump station in front of the check in area at the end of our loop. When you head for home, if the close by dumps are busy, you can still stop at the other one close to the park exit.

The weather looks like it might moderate and it looks like Thursday will be the hottest day. Highs for the balance of the week will be the low 80's with nights between 60-65. Be sure to bring a jacket or a pullover for movie nights..it might be a little nippy.

Those of you coming from the south might be coming from some warmer climes. I know last night's forecast for the STL area had temps in the upper 90's for Thursday. Since most of us will be carrying in full water tanks, watch your inflation levels of your tires and your towing speed. That hot pavement can take a toll on tires if you are under inflated or driving over the speed rating of your tires.

Jack

food

I have perused all three of my White Trash Cooking cookbooks and Ruby Ann's Trailer park Cookbook, and can't find anything I want to inflict upon my friends. Then I went to my Roadkill cookbook.

So we're bringing tacos and fixings and since I love my 24 hour fruit salad, that, too.
