Jack, please put us down for stacked enchiladas for Saturday night. In Minnesotan? Okay, it's chili hotdish.

Remember everyone with dogs -- you've got to get them all froofed up in their best buttons and bows for the movie Saturday night! Don't know who to cheer for more? Parker Posey or Fred Willard. Dey wuz robbed at the Academy Awards!!

We're outta here -- taking the long Moraine View detour via Kentucky. I should be checking in if they hain't kicked Starbucks outta the state (and hoping that Verizon gets my PC card logged in by tomorrow).

SYDTR,
Bob, Susie, Bella & Chloe

we're almost ready

We are almost ready... it's been a loooong winter after Gary hurting himself, that swan dive off the roof and a shattered foot really set us back....but he's walking; the truck's leaf spring is fixed, we have brand new tires.. and ...

I FINALLY ordered new locker latches from a certain AS dealer in California.

I TRY not to order from there but there was no where else that sells them.. and now I remember WHY I try to shop elsewhere.... I got charged EIGHTEEN BUCKS SHIPPING for a small box of plastic latches.

Put the RedSHED s down for Zucchini Bread, Saurkraut for the dogs (people food, not the canines) and maybe some veggies. We'll see. Looking forward to meeting all!

Just an FYI. The hot dogs are going to be served on Friday late afternoon and aren't part of the Saturday pot luck.

2008 Moraine View Rally

I just returned from a NewBeetle.org Forms rally in Pontiac, IL. We were about 70 miles North/North West of LeRoy. Hopefully we won't experience the same weather excitement next week that we had for the New Beetle Rally. A little more than 30 minutes before our rally ended, we learned of a Tornado Warning for Livingston county (Pontiac is the county seat of Livingston county). The weather for the balance of the afternoon was rocky. My camera decided to take a vacation, but the photos below are of what we witnessed taken by other members of the New Beetle rally near the I-55 on-ramp at Dwight, IL:

Rest assured, Kevin, that Jack has made all of the necessary arrangements to ensure a picture-perfect weather weekend for Moraine View. He has a special dispensation to handle matters of that magnitude.

By the way, for all you doubters in the crowd, we're planning on bringing the Bigfoot this year and towing it with the little Born Free moho. Bring your cameras!

Cool pictures Kevin. Garrison Keeler on Prairie Home Companion was rambling on last night about the great storms we have here in the Midwest and how they make us better people.
With the rain falling, tornados dropping out of the sky, I-57 closed due to power lines that have reportedly been blown across the road, a lot of stuffs been coming down.
But some things have gone up since last year. Fuel, food and, oh yea, Camping Fees. Look for the "Notification of Fee Increase" showing up in your mailbox.
Well, its a small price to pay to get together with the group. But you think they could have grand-fathered us in.
Oh well. I guess were better people for it.

Rolling in on Thursday,
Tom.

Haven't received any notification on my side yet.....but based on the updated reservation form, it does look like the rate went up from $15 to $20 a day. Considering we've paid the same rate for the past 5 years, it's not surprising that we would eventually get hit with an increase. Most state parks receive minimal funding so it's probably needed.

Let's hope this weather breaks. We dodged funnel clouds here Friday afternoon. The jet stream has parked two jets over the midwest with the collision point being right over Missouri and Illinois. At this early time there are some forecasts for rain on Friday but Saturday looks okay. Just don't leave that awning down overnight unless you are ready to batten down the hatches in the early am.

It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel. What with all the rain and more coming, it would be just too difficult to get around with the wheelchair. A-6, right in the center of the action, is available.

Rog, I haven't talked about that but for those of you who have things to trade or to sell, you can put those out Saturday during the tours.

A06 is right next to the area where we will do the pot luck and movies. If there isn't anyone who has held off coming at this point, one of you out on the far reaches of the sites might consider trading sites.

Jim sorry you can't make it. Are you still holding the reservation? If so I assume that folks can contact you regarding taking your site.
