we're in

Talked to Sandy put a deposit down. Wes bees in full hook up. Dry campin not for us. In fifteen minutes upon disconnect we can fill a 13gl garbage bag. We always ask to be closest to the dumpster. 50gls fresh water whats that? I use that much too rinse off the cucumbers! I have 2 Honda 2000Is converted to trifuel with quick hookup to the 40gl tanks thought I'd use em to go out to the everglades and get back to hear my heart beat. Well that never happened. There is a sense of security when I pull that black water tank lever and see the results of a good campin trip flow thru that clear plastic connector. I mean what did I pay extra for anyhow? I mean I did look at a popup and in the end I settled with solid hickory cabinets and 2 ACs! Whiskey Tango

We are in too!

We also are in full hookup. I am so excited to meet new Airstream friends.
I have never been to Michigan. We are coming in on Monday and leaving on Sunday.

The U.P. is so much fun ( camping with Kelly)

We've got a group bonfire planned for three nights. I told Sandy to bring however much wood she normally brings and then to double that amount so we might be "close" to what we "need."

If you have the time, go back and start reading all the posts from page one...then you'll get to know everybody. Most of us have not camped together so this will be a real meet and greet friendly rally. We'll have a potluck one or two nights and now that we have around 30 Airstreams coming, we'll have to incorporate a happy hour open house. We are working on a calendar of events and trying to keep the rally loose because there is so so SO much to see and do. It will be fun to sit around the fire and hear what others did that day and then maybe randomly tweak your next day based on some feedback.

Hey Ed and Kay Rottinger....I had a wonderful time meeting up with you for the first time this past week at the Tahquamenon Falls State Park(about 75 miles from Mackinaw City) in Paradise, MI. Can't wait till June when we hook into some big ones again on the Michigamme Reservoir near Iron Mountain, MI and than later again at the Exploring Under the Bridge Rally this August when we can swap (approved) fish stories with everyone! Sometimes, what happens in the boat, stays in the boat.

This is what I love about rallying...new friends, new adventures!

Kelly
Here are some photos we took
When we pulled in there was a great spot where you could view the river from the rear bunk. That at treat to see and hear the river and hear the eagles fishing. Then Kelly pulled in and we helped her hook up built a camp fire and chatted. The dogs ...Remey and Oliver a few growls and then got along. the next day some touring around then another campfire chat. We did a little fishing together and got skunked!!! But Kelly said were going to get you a real fish! She brought the right tackle and found us a great spot way off the main road. On my second cast I hooked a 4 or 5 lb northern pike. But since the season wasn't open yes he had to go back. The next day we toured the falls which was great and we had lunch at camp 33 Brewery and restaurant its right in the park of the falls. The next we were off at 9am back to Iron River ,Michigan we went along the shore of Lake Superior.

Camping with Kelly is so much fun ... She is one great women who is a get'er done kind of girl!!!!

Thanks Kelly
lets catch the BIG ONE !

Happy to join the rally.

We missed the UP last year, went as far north as Airstream. So we hope we will not be denied this year. It will be nice to see great bodies of water that are not salted. I assume we can drink the water straight from the beach, yes?

Sounds like there MIGHT be just enough water between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron to keep you supplied. Ice Mountain water bottling company is right up at the tip of the mitten, near Traverse City, and they suck the ground dry so folks all over the U.S. can buy our Pure Michigan water. So glad you guys are coming!

I'm so glad Ed and Kay posted pictures of those roaring Tahquamenon Falls. For those of you traveling from such great distances, it is worth taking a 70 mile jaunt up to Paradise, MI to see them. There's a great State Park restaurant will a full microbrewery at the upper falls section. Would make a great 1/2 day trip.

Chuck Norris Facts:
  • Chuck Norris ordered a Big Mac at Burger King, and got one.
  • If you have five dollars and Chuck Norris has five dollars, Chuck Norris has more money than you.
  • Chuck Norris once broke the land speed record on a bicycle that was missing its chain and the back tire.
  • Chuck Norris frequently donates blood to the Red Cross. Just never his own.
  • Chuck Norris owns the greatest poker face of all-time. It helped him win the 1983 world series of poker despite him holding just a joker, a 2 of clubs, a 7 of spades, and a green number 4 from Uno and a monopoly ‘get out of jail free’ card.
  • Chuck Norris does not use spell check. If he happens to misspell a word, Oxford will simply change the actual spelling of it.
  • Chuck Norris got a perfect score on his SAT's, simply by writing Chuck Norris for every answer.
  • The show Survivor had the original premise of putting people on an island with Chuck Norris. there were no survivors and the pilot episode tape has been burned.

A police officer got out of his car as a kid who was stopped for speeding rolled down his window. "I've been waiting for you all day," the officer said. The kid replied, "Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could." When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.

Sidebar: Ya know, when I start trying to entertain rather than inform, I get to laughing and then I realize I'm entertaining my own self too much. Then I get all happy about it. Is this a symptom of early onset old age?

Kelly

Here is a great site to click and find all the Michigan Lighthouses. It is a detailed map and a key to the names/locations of all of them.

I am going to bring my cheap telescope too, maybe Mike will take a look at it and tell me why it does what it does? Maybe give some advise on telescopes as well.

We are eagerly waiting for this trip, will be first trip over 1 week and more than 300 miles from home base and with grandkids in tow.
We are leaving here the last week of July going to travel to somewhere between Lansing and Flint, that week will be spent on Geneology work and then travel to there, and then when we leave we will almost have to drive strait through to get back in time for work and school.
Maybe I will hit the lottery and wont have to worry about either, LOL

That pretty much looks like the best spot in the campground to me. Thanks again Kelly for doing a recon!

Bring it! The more the merrier. I'm sure Mike will have lots of advice, now what you do with it...
