Are there particular rules for the Dutch Oven Contest, or can use a little magic?

Cooking & Stuff

We're heading north tomorrow - have to see a man about a horse in Springfield....and that's all I'm saying.

Also, being a contrary ole woman who does not own a dutch oven, I will be cooking in my stove's oven....LOL So, I won't be in the contest, but I'll provide some good food!

Can't wait to see all of you.

Just a note - I only found out a day or two ago that Blair is no longer with Reliable RV and I don't know where he now works or if he retired. One thing is certain, I will really miss him at the rally. If anyone knows how to reach him, I wish he would come as just another of us Airstreamers. He provided so much to this rally for so long!

I understand that the sales manager at Reliable may join us with a new trailer for open house. Hope he brings goodies, too!

Weather is looking pretty good for Friday and Saturday, too.

Billy Gails

You guys want me to get up TWO mornings in a row to go eat breakfast? I only get up that early twice a year - one morning at each AIR Midwest rally.

Ya'll are really pushin' it....LOL

By the way, Don and Jerri taught me about Billy Gail's and made me get up that first time....has anyone heard from them?

If not, I'll call her tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks for re-posting the schedule, Brad. We will bring some sort of appetizer (?) Fri night, then we'll barbeque some chicken and bring a salad or veggie dish for Sat. night. Can't wait to test all the dutch oven desserts!
Still have to get everything in the trailer tomorrow...it's all clean and ready to go; tomorrow will be busy!
Carol, I agree with you about getting up early 2 days? I'll pass on Fri morn. for sure...Jim likes to cook outside in the mornings...which is great for me!
Pumpkin carving...that sounds like a Jim thing to me too...he's pretty crafty.
Sounds like lots of fun!

Pure Magic!

Max Well,
Gumbo sounds great. How big is your Dutch Oven? I suspect there won't be any leftovers!

Any of you who come from north and west of Springfield...question about taking Hwy 265 S/413 into west Branson. Is that better than going all the way into Springfield then south on 65? We're coming from I44 from OK,,,thinking of taking Hwy 60 which is south of I44, but not sure about that highway...anyone have an opinion? Thanks!

Personally, I like I-44, and 65 down to Branson. But I haven't been on that route since last year coming back from somewhere... Secondary roads scare me when we're towing (which we just did for 8,000 miles!) because it's like a box of chocolates..... and I HATE bumpy roads and missing shoulders when we are towing Esmerelda.

We have not taken the entire route south through Springfield itself. I think there are too many traffic lights, too much close traffic and lower speed limits...

From KC we go down MO-13, I-44, US-65. It might be a little longer distance wise, but seems a little quicker time wise. I seem to remember seeing signs last trip that there will be new road construction and possible delays on 65 this month.

Carol, what have you guys seen on 65, any possible delays?

Hmmm, a horse in Springfield... must be a mighty special horse...

Coming south out of Springfield, the best route is US 65 to Highway 465 to Highway 76 west.

Currently there's no construction going on, anywhere on this route.

Trust me.

We're on our way to Lake Catherine this weekend. Hmmmmm, maybe I can talk the missus into coming out on Saturday.
