We have made it as far as Mountain Grove, MO. A 2 or 3 hour drive and we will be there fairly early tomorrow. Looking forward to staying put for a few days with no driving.

So far we have had a group field trip to the Elephant Rocks, a little grocery shopping followed by some nice splashing in the creek. Most of us now are chilling in the AC waiting for the rest of the group to show up this evening. Be warned if you are coming down here. It is VERY hot!

AIR Midwest Black River Rendezvous

Plans didn't pan out for me. My father's health isn't good and he has been having spells such that I can't be away from home for more than a few hours as the facility where he is living calls me so often. I am certainly going to miss being able to attend this rally as I have heard so much about this campground and surrounding area. I am certain that I will be missing a great rally!

Another great rally compliments of Steve & Amy. Hope everyone got home safely. I'm at Long Branch SP in Macon, MO on a completely shaded spot and will be here the next couple of days. Will head out on Tuesday for Points North.

My memories of float trips on the Black River are full of racing water, warm shallow rapids, coooold deep swimming holes, BIG boulders looming beneath us as we'd paddle overhead, shady cool spots leading onto long sunny hot stretches...summer day on a Missouri stream! We hope you all had a grand time, lots of ac to cool down with, great company and food to match ~G

Cosmotini and I caravanned down to the rally after lunch on Friday. Great campground with spacious sites for an RV Park. And the best part - the rate is only a few dollars more than a Missouri State Park.


Soon after we got set up the hot and humid atmosphere popped up some spot thunderstorms.


Big Creek RV Park is right on Big Creek. The water was low and the creek bed is solid rock.


An old wagon road crossed Big Creek where the campground is today. The pioneers carved ruts into the river bed so that the wagons wouldn't get pushed sideways on the slippery rock when the current was faster.


The RV Park was close to several great Missouri State Parks and a few of us chose to visit Elephant Rocks State Park to see the massive red granite dome that was quarried to build the streets and many buildings in the city of St. Louis.




There's nothing better than the variety offered by a potluck dinner. The RV Park had a very nice air conditioned room for our use.


The RV Park was just built in 2008 and opened in March of 2009. The trees need a few years before they start providing shade. I think I had the only shady site in the park and the heat index was over 100 degrees. The electric grid got a workout and voltage stayed plentiful even with all the air conditioners running non-stop.


It cooled off just enough to enjoy a small fire on Saturday evening.

Thanks for posting the pictures Steve. We somehow managed to leave our camera in the truck most of the weekend.
