At the rate the forecast keeps changing we'll never know what the weekend will really be like. The St. Louis local weatherman was showing a stationary front that kept drifting back and forth over the area this weekend and it looked like it would just be spotty showers vs. all-day showers. I'm not worried.

I'm pretty sure Roger & Alice have an EZ-UP portable as well.

Dan - I've changed my mind on bringing the kayak. Too cool and windy to really enjoy. I'll definitely have it at Moraine View in June.

We're not wimping out, just leaving the kidlings behind.

Still bringing the DO and going to cook in it or use the pie irons every meal, if we can.

Going to bring the Bogs for cold and wet, if it comes. The warmest and driest things we own.

It will still be fun. Really looking forward to seeing everyone.

Al, you could drag your s---- a-- up to see us, we would take care of you in the rain and cold. We will have lots of firewood and hot whiskey.

Better see you at Moraine View---how could you miss their 10th anniversary!

See y'all tomorrow,


Maggie

We have a 10 x 10. Have not used it much since we got the awning fixed. Al where are you going to be? We plan on driving around on thursday looking at the other campsites. Neither of us have been to Shelbyville.

Okay, Al, do what you must, but you know you'll miss some great campfires, conversation and cooking.

We'll be looking for you in June.

We are still coming...no weather wimps here. We camped for years with our horses in some appalling conditions. The upside to bad weather camping is the real high you get when you get in the truck and drive down the road and escape from the bugs, cold, heat, rain, snow... whatever. By the time you get home it was not so bad and you feel better for enduring.

Ian

PS We camped out along the Mississippi last weekend despite 80% rain chance and cold. It was cold but no rain.

The forecast has improved a bit. Now it looks like a beautiful day tomorrow, then a good morning on Friday with spotty showers in the afternoon. Saturday's chance of showers is down to only 40%. Looking good.

I hope your forecaster is correct. Cold is fine, I can do without the rain.

Still going to be too cold to have the kiddies in the tent. Another time for them.

We are parked. Truck is on it's way to Ford in Effingham. At least we got here this time before it died. Thanks to Dan the awesome tow truck driver we are not spending the night at the dump station.

I should have hitched up and come out yesterday. I got hit with hail here at home. I'm sure there's damage with hail that size, but I can't tell until daylight. At least no vents were broken.

They're saying on the news this morning that the hail was twice that size in Highland just north of me and in Aviston just east of me.
