Tom and I picked up a bug this week, no not spinach, and we are a bit behind on getting ready. Tonight looks slim but will be there early on Friday. See you then.

Sorry to hear that Sue. Hope your feeling better.

I do not like the forcast for this weekend, but we will make due.

I plan on heading out this afternoon about 4ish. That should put me at the park about 5:30. Just before it gets too dark.

OK. We're loaded and ready to go tomorrow about 10am. I'm bringing the screen house in case we need it to put over some tables for the pot luck.
Hopefully the rain won't be too bad. Not that I mind being a little damp but I don't know if the ground feedback problem when the lights are on causing the trailer brakes to shut down is fixed.
Note to self: Loooooong interval between cars.

See you all soon,
Tom and Sue.

We were holding out to the last minute and now have to cancel. Health-wise I think I could have made it but Chummy's brakes went out and the shop is having trouble finding parts. First they promised by Wednesday now they are still waiting for the vacuum boost to arrive and then they have to install it. I realize that Pecatonica is South and therefore down hill from us but we would have to stop when we reached the park. Any volunteers to stand in front of Chummy to stop him?

well ck you are missed!

we shall raise a glass to your continued recovery and good health.

we are having a great time...
the cloud cover means no need for a/c,
the ground is just wet enough to keep the dust down!


dogs are having a ball as are the children...
nice campfire last night and some fine wine,
with a wonderful star filled canopy...

dinner is planned for 5 pm
i can tell there will be too much food...
is that even possible?

cheers

We rolled in to our driveway with a half hour to go before the Chicago Bear game, and company coming. The company will just have to fall over the camper stuff, as we unpack :-)

We had a LOVELY rally, small but friendly, with "regular friends" we are ALWAYS glad to see.

We weren't able to solve all of the "puppy mental issues," but we DID have a GREAT time.

We'll have to get together again very SOON to work on the dogs :-)

Camping

*** There are certainly WORSE things under heaven and on earth than snuggling with your puppy, in your bed, in your dry vintage Airstream, listening to rain, acorns and walnuts falling, not to mention coyotes singing and yipping in the distance.

(I said WITH the puppy.. she was very intimidated and hid under the covers :-)

It sounds like a tin roof, and is quite comforting. Reminds me of growing up down south :-)

I'm ready to leave to go camping again.

The rally was a success as far as I am concerned. It rained all night Thursday night, but if you don't mind some mud Friday was nice. The kids had fun riding their bikes around the campground road. Saturday rained on and off. The guys put up an awning and screen tent, then it stopped raining, so Saturday night's dinner was great. Lots of good food and don't forget desserts. Campfire both nights with smores was very enjoyable. Attendees were 2air' with dog , jimmickle, denellen with dogs, flamingo-kid with dogs, Tom Nugler, summerkid with dog, and us with 4 kids, that's 16 people, 7 Airstreams, and 6 dogs. There was also a very pretty russian blue stray cat with a bum leg, hanging out at the next campsite. Rained a bit on and off Saturday night. Trailers started leaving Sunday morning. We were almost stuck in the mud, but the Caprice pulled it off. Lots of fun mingling with everyone. Now to wash all the mud out of the kids clothes.
We need to do this more often!

Thanks Till for a job well done and a bucket of karma back to you.
We'll never have to worry about bad weather again. It seems we have enough combined good karma to clear rainy skies for good food, good drink, good friends and warm campfires.
All the usual camping paraphenalia is still drying out, but a little mud was a small price to pay for a great time.
I don't know if I can PhotoShop my dismal attempts at photography well enough to post but I'll give it a try during the week.

See you all again soon,
Tom and Sue

hi tom, till, jim, mariane, 'kid1, denellen, summerkid, and all the happy campers who made the rally...

we had a great time right!

what rain?

i checked with the national weather service and less than 6 inches fell for the weekend!

it kept the bugs and dust at bay....

most importantly it gave us a chance to properly break-in ellen's precious awnings!

hey everyone we had a great time, good food, fires and most of the park to ourselves....

and many would pay to see tom/ted set up a tent...i would right now!

hope 2 see all the kids, dogs, and campers again real soon.

cheers
2air'

i just got home. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL CAMPGROUND! 2air & I strolled around with the dogs sans leash after everyone cleared out & all four of us examined the fauna, flora & artifacts.

guess what! 2air is NOT a 99-year-old curmudgeon with views to the right of Condi Rice. How on earth did i get THAT perception?!

It was very good to see RaChelle & Gary, plus Tedd & crew, and to meet everyone else.

My only chagrin is that SOMEONE had to end up with the crippled campground kitty, and I suspect that had to be the person who inexplicably had cat food in the trailer but, mysteriously, no cat to go with it. So my caravan became the one-eyed dog, 3-legged cat, and half-brained chick. sheesh.

at any rate, "Romeo" goes to the vet 1st thing after i wake up, see how far along that dislocated hip is.
