Steve, I think Collin has ji-hacked your log-on and is asking me about his college fund. I'll share my 2007 AIR Forums income 50:50 with him if you want to pass that along!

Net? Gross? What the diff bro'? It be zed-point-zed-zed-zed. This is all about bleeding Airstreams 24-7. Yah, I have a habit of over-committing. . .

Thinking Maybe Yes

Hello All…I have just two very simple questions to pose to the group.

Is “Moraine View” the state rec area just a little south of Bloomington, Il.??
And, as this would be my first rally, other then cold beverages for the group, what will I need to bring???

Thanks Much
Hank

cold beverages ??

Yep. Moraine is just the other side of Bloomington, and all you'll have
to do is follow this thread to sign up for the potluck later.

All of that remains to be discussed.. but it's FUN FUN and FUN.

Welcome to your first rally.. you couldn't have found a nicer one.. and be CAREFUL about cold beverages cuz it's against the Forest Preserve rules to have anything "leaded"... but they never look in my glass or under our can covers :-)

Also, be discreet.. walk in a straight line and so on.

Yes. Moraine View is where you think it is.

Nothing. This is a nudist rally so nothing else is needed.

Just kidding, but this is a nice laid back rally. There is usually a movie shown on the side of flaming kid's airstream on Friday evening and people gather there or around some other campfires just to socialize.

Saturday afternoon is an open house is where you can look at and be looked at, if you want to.

Saturday evening is 'pot-luck' where you make your own main dish and bring a side dish of whatever and take some of everybody else's whatever for dinner.

Later, a movie may be shown or people just sit around the campfire(s).

Other activities: Some people bring canoes or boats. Some bring bikes. A lot bring pets. If you fish, you may need to get an out-of-state temporary fishing license.

It's all good.

Jack Canavera does a great job with it.

This Rally is an excellent first rally venue. The atmosphere is great, and the park is among the nicest of the Illinois State Parks. I might add the following to what others have posted:
  1. You will find a comfortable lawn chair for each member of your party to be invaluable.
  2. Be prepared for semi-dry camping. Each of the sites have 30 amp electric, but water isn't generally available at each site nor are sewer connections. Empty waste tanks and full potable water tank is a near necessity.
    1. Two dump stations are available, one near the park entrance and another at the campground entrance.
    2. There is also a potable water fill station near the campground entrance as well.
  3. For the evening campfires, you may want to be sure to pack a warm outfit as the evenings have been cool for some of the earlier rallies. A flashlight is also very handy as the grounds are well shaded so you are often walking in the shadows.
  4. There is usually an open house (participation optional) to give participants to tour one another's coaches -- this is one of my favorite activites (The Long, Long Trailer plays on my Video player while a slide show of the 1999 Vintage Airstream Club International Rally and Wagon Wheels Caravan plays on my laptop).
  5. We often bring pass-arounds (chips, etc.) for the afternoon social time.
  6. Most of all, come prepared to have fun -- this rally has always been among my favorites in this region, and I feel sure that you will enjoy every minute.
My rig should be able to spot this year as my vintage tow vehicle is finally finished -- a shop in Bloomington was able to true and straighten my original steel wheels so the car can again safely tow either the Minuet or Overlander. The picture below is of the car with the Boyd Coddington wheels that were too wide to permit the car to safely tow the trailer:



The car will likely look more like it did when photographed towing the Overlander below:



Thinking about this year's rally makes me even more anxious for the ice from this week's ice storm to melt -- 4.5 unexpected snow days has made for a rather long week -- we were fortunate, however, in that our electricity was only out for 12 hours many of our neighbors have been without for four or more days and may not have electricity until early next week!

Kevin, your Eldo is wonderful!! Congratulations!! You've been preparing to get it on the road for sometime now and I'm happy for you it's done now. We lost our '73 Coupe de Ville that had belonged to my parents to fire last May. It had been in storage for 19 years and one day it came to me that we could pair it up with the TW. Sadly, it was never to be. Looking forward to seeing the vintage package.
