Sue, we will be delighted to have you join us. There really are no geographical boundarys or restrictions on who can attend. I call this the Midwest Forums rally since most attendees will be driving from this part of the country.

If you do come to the June rally, we do have electric but please be aware that there are no direct water or sewer hookups. Some folks ran a long hose to the nearest water supply when they emptied their freshwater holding tank prematurely. Make sure your new trailer's water and sewage holding facilities are in working order. There are a couple of dump stations in the park so you will have no problem disposing on the way out.

July will be full hookups so as long as your water system holds pressure, you will be in good shape. All kinds of "experts" will be at both rally's so we will be happy to give you our "advice" on your new trailer.

Hope to see you there, watch for further announcements as we pull the arrangements together.

Regards,

Jack

Count us in for Moraine View...

Hi, Jack & all!

Better late than never... We'll do our best to make it to Moraine this year. Doubt we'll be able to make the July trip... too short staffed, but we'll see.

Eric... I'm a little disappointed that you're planning on doing a 'crude' website; I'm surprised that Brandi would tolerate you being 'crude'. However, I guess one can't expect much more from a guy who tows with a Chevy... and an IMPALA at that! <heavy sneer>

Actually, Eric, it'll be fun to get together with you guys now that you've got a REAL trailer!!! <grin, grin, grin>

Looking forward to seeing everyone in June!

Roger

I just read this post about Eric's "REAL trailer!!!".........

I WOULD assume that a Real Trailer, considering this is the Airstream forum, would be an Airstream as opposed to SOB.
But the fact that Eric's "Fake" trailer was an Airstream, I'm left with this conclusion: this is a SIZE issue.

Roger......Is that a 34 foot trailer in your (you know the rest)

Ron is feeling very inadequite with our Minuet.

Hey Roger! So happy to see you're going to make it to the Rally! Maybe this time around I can taste some wine with everyone.

Exclamation Midwest Rally Information for 2004

OK folks, we are setting the date and location.

June 11, 12, 13th (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 2004


Moraine View
State Recreation Area (Gander Bay Campground)
27374 Moraine View Park Rd.
LeRoy, IL 61752
309.724.8032

The location is near Bloomington Illinois and if you go to the map link below you will find major interstate highway access from all directions.

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...submit=Get+Map

Directions to the campground are on the Moraine View website link below.

http://dnr.state.il.us/lands/landmgt...HTM#Directions

We will be staying in the Gander Bay campground. All sites have electric. There is fresh water supplies scattered within the campground and there is a bathouse. There is also a dump station.

Note that reservations are by mail only. I have already checked and very few people have reserved on this weekend. There are 61 sites. Here is the link to the reservation form.

http://dnr.state.il.us/lands/landmgt...rvcamprsvp.pdf

Note that if you mark your reservation "Airstream Group", they will try to keep us all next to each other. When you fill out the form send $16 for your first night's reservation. Additional nights will be $11 and will be collected by park personnel upon your arrival at the campground.

Those who want to arrive earlier or stay later can adjust their dates on their reservation form.

Since this is a public facility and not far from some major metropolitan areas, space will be limited. There is no doubt that the campgrounds will be full if you wait until a week or two before reserving. Get your reservations mailed early! You will receive a written confirmation from the park.

Hope to see you there and let us know if you make a reservation.

Regards,

Jack

Mark your reservation "Airstream Group"

Hey there!
We're newbies in the RV'ing world, but this gathering sounds very appealing. We'll be bringing Silver Belle home pretty soon and as soon as the kids are out of school....well, just color us GONE! Are newbies welcome too??

Newbies

Welcome,
Newbies are the building blocks of this forum and all Airstreaming events.

I see that you are in Georgia, are you members of the WBCCI and if not have you considered joining?

Mornin' Smily!

Thank you for the reply. No. We are not members yet but yes, we are planning on joining. *hangs a mental Post It on her brain to join* I figure that even though my husband and I will be strangers at first, that "Silver Belle" is not. We're very excited about this new lifestyle we're embarking upon and so looking forward to making new friends along the way! Dr. Joe did us a huge favor by pointing us to this forum.

Sure you are welcome! This is not a WBCCI sponsored event so there are no restrictions on who comes or what they camp in. If you are an Airstream Wannabe come with what you've got. We do tours of our trailers and motorhomes so you will see every thing from brand new to vintage. There are no scheduled activities other than, weather permitting, a pot luck dinner Saturday night and a campfire.

Silvertwinkie and I were exchanging PM's last night and I told him I would bring my Animal House DVD for those who want to see the Toga Party!

Jack

Welcome Fred and Lainey!

We all look forward to welcoming new people to the group! Has anyone informed you of the initiation process? Nothing to worry about. Just a few rituals and some light hazing - all in good fun - very mild - powderpuff (giggle). I have to remember to find my branding iron...... now wherever did I put that? Then we all dress in silver robes, light torches....oh, wait, I'm forbidden to tell the details - it's part of "the oath." If these secrets ever got out........Well........I shudder just thinking about it. Then at the end of all of it all you're life will be changed: you'll become (uncomfortable silent pause) (speaking in a sinister voice) "ONE OF US."

Can't wait to beat you......I uh, mean meat......wait, meet!
(evil laugh)

Unhappy

Initiations?? *looking around nervously..flipping through Airstream Owners handbook* I didn't see anything in here about THAT! Are you trying to scare us off?? *s* (Your description brings to mind that scene from Revenge of the Nerds! YIKES!)

Tracy, kids AND a sense of humor? Good move. Hard to raise them without one. *s* We will be traveling with our 3 boys so it's nice to know that there are other families out there. Actually, just from viewing the profiles here, I've found out that there are alot more families our age than I first thought.

Jack...the fact that you still own a copy of Animal House makes me think you're good people. *s* What a classic! Now, if you own a copy of Monty Python and the Holy Grail...I will know that you are the wild man of the group.

Thank you for your responses and welcomes. My husband and I are looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. Buy an Airstream ie instant friends and family. Who knew?!

Fred & Lainey

You would have thought we were old buddys since most of us just met for the first time. I know for the majority of us the rally exceeded our expectations.

Now if you really want to get adventurous we are working on a weeklong rally in Mackinaw City Mi. for July. Lots to do and see up there, and for those so likened to long showers, full hookups!

Stay tuned for further information. I hope to have the final details together by next week or so.

Regards,

Jack
