Out of Surgery

Marianne has e-mailed Sue with an up-date. Say's Jim is out of surgery and doing OK.
Keep him in your thoughts however, he still has a long way to go before he's back on the road.

Tom and Sue.

I P.M.'ed him.. I bet he'll end up better than ever..

the medical field is growing by leaps and bounds.

It;s too bad it had to happen, but I'm sure he's in great hands.

Hello to All -Surgery took place as planned. All went well. It was an extremely long exhausting day. Jim is resting in the cardiac area because of a flutter or two that developed when he was coming out of the sedation. He will be in the hosp. for a couple more days. The cut was 6 in. above the ankle leaving a good stump for a prosthesis. His attitude is still positive. I'm sure we will have a long up-hill climb with this. Thanks for you caring support - Marianne (Iowa Nana or Nana from Iowa)

Well it sure looks like another sucessful Midwest Rally. A big thanks to Jack and those who assist in making this boat float each year. We're sorry we didn't make it this year but are already looking forward to 2008. The pictures are great and we've enjoyed looking at them - thanks to all who've posted.

Tom, we wish you fast healing and a speedy recovery.

Nice pictures. Most of you don't know but I've been doing a medical diet/diabetes study since January and have lost about 25 lbs. This is the first time I've seen a picture of myself in some time so obviously I was somewhat shocked to see the new thinner me.

Glad everyone had a good time. I'm still trying to get caught up from the trip so I haven't even pulled my pictures off my camera yet. Thanks to all who have posted theirs.

To those of you who like what you see, remember the second weekend of June next year (June 13,14,15). Like the old saying goes, Lord willing and if the creek don't rise we will be back for our 6th year.

Jack

yep, i noticed the slimmer you jack...

but wasn't sure if the loss was intentional. good job!

another great rally, made so by the people who attend.

5 years at the same spot, wow. many in the same camp sites....

perhaps it is time to take the show to another scenic midwest location.

as pleasant as mvsra is, there are surely other parks to visit.

i've only been to 3 of the midwest rallies, but i'm ready for a new venue.

anyone else wanna try another campground?

it is absolutely the people (and dogs and food) that make the event...

but clear clean water, different trees, critters and other amenities might be nice too.

it's a big world out there lets explore it!

cheers

If a different site would ever be chosen, perhaps it could be considered somewhere in Ohio or around Kentucky!

To answer the last couple posts:

Well, I've thought about other locales but quite honestly I really have felt that the determining factor pushing us elsewhere will be us outgrowing the campgrounds, and that hasn't happened as of yet.

The problem with moving is that we chose this site since it was somewhat central to most of us. Keep in mind that going somewhere else will be beneficial for some, yet might keep others from coming. For the biggest part we are all working and our time and travel distance from home dictates if we will or will not come.

What I would rather see is additional rallies starting up in different locales on different dates. For example, you will remember a few years ago we did one up in Mackinaw City Michigan. This year another forum member is doing one in Branson in the fall. In many cases we saw some or will see a lot of the same people at these rallies. Also consider that of the original attendees, 5 units have been there every year. We also have seen some 4 and 3 year returnees. But also keep in mind that we do bring in new folks every year and maybe we will stay in the 30+ unit attendance for the future. Losing some due to scheduling issues, or the fact of being there before, and gaining first timers since the forums continues to grow.

So I'm inclined to say that I'll continue to do Moraine until folks stop attending. Others can establish rallies in other locales just as Steve has done in Branson this summer, and many others have done in other parts of the country. Remember the only reason I got involved with this was initially to get a location and provide a little organization. You don't need to be a Forums Moderator or Administrator to do this. Just pick a site, get a thread rolling and make of it as you will. That's the beauty of it all. There is no required format and you folks make it what you want.

Jack

Thumbs up Alternate Campground

I Will put our Vote in for "Wagon Trail Campground " in Ellison Bay ,Wi.
It's a Beautiful Clean Campground. You can walk to Lake Michigan and to a Resort w/Restaurant-Bakery. It's in Door County Wi. Lot's of hiking or Biking and water sport's. They handle SOB Rally's. We will be there 30 June to 7 July.I will ask about pricing and other possible services that they might do,and will post result's.
Looking forward to next year wherever it might be.
