I just checked this post and I was wondering if anyone knows if the campsite is full yet? We just purchased our first 16 bambi and would LOVE to join this Rally. We have so many questions that I know could be answered from fellow airstreamers. We live in Joliet and this is not far from us. I wish I found out about this sooner. Do I need to be a member?

Shoot, I'm at work and can't use a phone and I left my cell at home. I live across the street so I might need to run home and make a call. Thanks

I've tried twice to call for you but got busy signals. Here's what Jack had to say on May 25th:

Note that once reservations are cut off, its first come first served to get any non-reservable or unreserved campsite. Note there is lots of space in the non-reservable sites so if you can get there Thursday, I can pretty much assure you that you can get in.

I'll be coming from Kankakee so we might meet up!

We would be taking 55. We should be there by 7pm Friday if our reservation goes through, if not we could come Thursday. See you there!!
How far are the non reservable sites from the Airstream Group? I hope to get A13 but if I can't we will try the non-reserve sites.

feel free to go down thursday since lots of folks are arriving then anyway, but if that's not convenient, i'm SURE one of them would confirm things with the office for you.

Jack?
Anybody?

Anussia,
Welcome to the rally. Check out the attendee list and let us know about what you can contribute for the pot luck dinner Saturday night. The non-reservable sites are in some cases across the loop road from the reservable A9-16 section. Click here for the campground map.

And please anyone else planning on coming for a non-reservable site, let me know. The map link above will show you those sites and from the attendee listing, you can get a relative location as to what are the prefered locations to stay in.

Weather looks good with rain chances 30% or less all weekend. Low temps will be in the upper 50's so bring warm clothes or blankets for the movie nights. Saturday will be cloudy.

I'm still trying to find out the condition of US 136 that connects between I-55 and I-74. For those of us coming from the southwest, that connecting highway saves us considerable time since we normally would have to go north to Bloomington on I-55 then go southeast on I-74. If any of you have any means to find out if US 136 is completely closed, let us know. The web site for IDOT is unclear as to whether the road is completely closed 1.8 miles west of I-74 or whether traffic is down to one lane.

Jack

We lost him last year also. Both cases due to the International Rally.
