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.
I've been there twice and it is a beautiful campground and has somewhat spoiled me relative to what I expect from private campgrounds. I know it was a little pricy during main season, but on the otherhand you go that far north, the season for these folks to make their $$ is pretty short.

This is truly a destination site that if I drive that far, I'm spending a minimum of a week at.

I fully agree.. Moraine View is the perfect distance for us, not too far, not too close.. it's about a 3 hour drive. It's our "longest" trip of the year.

Gas prices are what is hurting people (us) the most. We won't make it to Branson.

We can see what other rallies pop up.. let's spread the wealth but keep Moraine as a standard.

Morraine Was a little over 4 hours for us and is likely the longest trip of the year for us as well. I don't think we could make it that far north to Wisconsin, especially for a short weekend.

Perhaps somplace near lake Springfield?

Moraine View draws participants from 10 states without thinking too hard. I know I mentally counted 62 people at the potluck -- probably were more. The campground accomodates our large group without blinking. I can count on contact with a consistent core of Forums members there and wouldn't want to fiddle with the formula.

I have heard from another Minnesotan who wants to organize a rally up here. I don't have to give a go-ahead just as Jack says. Any rally can be a good time, even if only 4-5 Airstream owners get interested. 10? 15? All the better!

I think our experience with Moraine was excellent, and we are looking forward to next year. In addition we would like the opportunity to attend other rallys in different settings. We are planning to go to Wagon Trail in Ellison Bay during the next few weeks as it was highly recommended by some of the Moraine folks. A rally does not have to be large and I am certain that some areas and distances will be better suited for some and not as well suited for others. With a variety of locations we can pick those situations which best meet our individual circumstances. Possibly we could simply post a few weeks in advance where we are intending to go and see if anyone else is interested.

We camped at Wagon Trails in Ellison Bay a year ago. It is a lovely campground. They are quite serious about the dog rules. My brother had to sign a form acknowledging the dog rules (they have two small dogs) and the managment did check up on the dogs during the week end. This is not a bad thing, but thought you might want to know.

Moraine is really a good central location for midwest folks. Yes, Indiana might also as well. My take is that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. An additional rally would be great in addition to Moraine, but until Moraine can't fit us all in, I'd be reluctant to throw any support for a change. It's not very common to get as many folks to a single place as we have been able to do. Just my .02

Hi all. I am out of the hospital and at a rehab facility in Cedar Rapids. Probably will be sent home in about two weeks. Unless the healing on the stump is exceptional, will not be out of a wheelchair then. Everything seems to be going very well so far. Am using the computer here at the rehab center.

We're joining in a round of applause for your good mending and great attitude, Jim. There! Did you hear it? Good news, indeed.
