Dave, thank you for your kind offer! That would truely be considered going "above and beyond". I can't expect you to invest 12 hours of driving just so I can get away for the weekend, but I do apreciate the offer. That is really a great Airstreaming spirit.

Have no fear, the HoHo will apear
Dan, you could always talk to loudruff about towing tandem... wonder if Larry has his doubles license. LOL!

Dave,
The reason I asked about parking is I noticed some where talking about their site # and thought maybe you had assigned parking.
A little change in the menu for us. We will be bringing goulash instead of spahgetti.
See ya friday.

We called up to KC and reserved a place and told them we were with the Airstreamers group. They sent back a confirmation letter with the site # posted on it. We will see you Fri. morning, but we are going out again and up to Cabelas; and Al and Shinim found a restaurant that we all want to check out. See you all after that!

I guess I will have to take the electrical tool kit with us this weekend to Fort Custer and do some looking. Any how this will not keep us home!! We are SOOO ready for this Rally!

I found the problem! In the dirt, on a beach towel, under the truck at Fort Custer I found 13.? volts in the charge line from the truck but only 5.? Volts at the actual plug! So I pulled off a whole roll of electrical tape from the PO's attempt at weather proofing the splice and found that the wire had severe corrosion at the butt connector and only 1 strand was left holding on. So with some strippers and a new butt connector and some heat shrink tubing the problem solved!

Before I had a chance to wash my hands we got visitors. Derek and Renee popped in to say Hi and welcome us to their turf. It was great meeting them and the little info we got on what to expect at the rally was a great help! Thank you for that!!

We are so exited for this weekend! The girls asked me this morning if today we got to see all the Shinny ones like ours? They are ready too.

firewood

Hope you folks in MI find lots of firewood to bring. Ohioans are not allowed to bring in any wood. We are looking forward to meeting all of you newbies!

wood

I imagine that the Ash borer is no respecter of state lines so northern Ohio is probably as bad as southern Michigan. If you have not been in southern Michigan in a couple of years it will be a shock. ALL of the Ash trees are dead or dying. The entire lower peninsula is now quarantined Level I but the beetles have been found in the UP now too. It is a sad thing to see all of one species of tree being killed. Another blight just like the Elms and the Chestnuts before them.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture recommends buying wood in the area where you are camped and burn it all there.

Quote:
All types of firewood can transport invasive pests other than EAB such as Beech Bark Disease, Asian Longhorned Beetle, Sirex Woodwasp, and Gypsy Moth. Help protect Michigan's natural resources by following this simple firewood recommendation: Buy firewood when you reach your destination and burn it all on site.
IF we get the Silver Dog House back from Grand Rapids in time to come we would be glad to contribute to the purchase of a pickup load of local firewood.
