That was fast. We got a great invite to stay over at Atobols, Jason and Andrea's place. See you all Friday morning.

Ashland

There is a big WalMart in Ashland on Rt. 250 just west of I-71 exit. Once you get on 250 E of Ashland there is not much as far as truck stops. Beware of the Amish buggies that will be out and about on Rt. 250. You will be in the heart of Amish country going through that neck of the woods. There are lots of truck stops on I-71 south of Ashland. There are some stops on I-77 and I expect that you can find a spot. Salt Fork is a SP that is down near Cambridge and is a beautiful place to camp if you want to get that far along before a stop.

Jason and Andrea are near Ashland. Maybe they have some suggestions.

Lou

won't be much of a caravan. Doug and Terry are heading out in the morning and unfortunately I'm putting in a full day of work. So, we'll be about 8-10 hours behind them. Bummer though. I get excited if I see one silver trailer going down the road. I might lose control of my own vehicle if I saw two in a row!

I think there may be a bit of flu in the air that day might need a drive to clear the air

Thanks for the info on campgrounds everyone. We'll be coming from Jackson Center. We may just spend one more night there, or just play it by ear, check out a state park, who knows. It's a wonderful thing to have a house on wheels! The options are endless.

Lorrie and I will be spending a couple of days at JC on the way to the Wilds. We might be able to caravan from JC to the Wilds on Friday morning.

Cool!

I have a service appointment for Wednesday. The Wilds is only about 160 miles from JC. This could be a great opportunity. See 'ya on the Terra Port.

I neglected to mention a couple of facts people may be interested in:

- At night, there is almost 0 light pollution at our campground. Anyone with a telescope may want to bring it. I was told the stars are spectacular.

- Within walking distance of our campsite is a couple of lakes. Word is fishing is possible. Catch & release only please

1992 29' Excella Classic - arriving around lunch (maybe as late as early afternoon) on Friday. We're driving through portions of six states to get there. I know that's not as far as driving from Capetown, South Africa to Cairo, Egypt but it's almost as crazy. See you then.

On 9/6/2009 Dan posted info on the Rally, and said that confirmations, parking passes, etc. would be emailed Tuesday.

I have not gotten anything yet. Am I just impatient? I hope I am really registered.

Mary & I are really looking forward to this rally.
