Coffee and jalapenos . . .

7AM is when they want to meet on Friday...anyone going to have coffee ready?

Steve, we're usually up and about early. Laird will brew extra coffee on Friday morning. I'll have a pot of hot tea in case anyone is a tea drinker like I am.

On another note, we bought our jalapenos while ago for the armadillo eggs. Meijer grocery had a sign in the produce section saying that the jalapenos were grown in the US.

Awesome, indeed! Most impressive, Steve.

maccamper likes the trophy a lot --- says he'll try his best to win it!

The coffee/tea mugs are neat, too.

Hey all,
I am not going to be able to be there. Sorry I am going to miss all the fun. Be sure to enjoy, eat way too much, then sit back and let it settle. See you somewhere along the road.

It's going to be small, but spirits will be lively enough with the bunch. Looks like things are out of hand already since I was told to bring bail money already by Maccamper .

Just kidding. It seems I picked the absolute WORST weekend in May for a rally since almost everyone had something going on.

As long as I have BBQ and aluminum around me...I'll be just fine.....and donuts....lots of donuts.

We're here!

We're at Whittington Woods and just finished setting up. We've decided that setting set up our camp site in the rain is the norm in Southern Illinois in April.

We were warmly greeted by our hosts -- and we invited them (Mary and Reed) to join us for potluck Friday and Saturday nights. They are anxious to see what in the world armadillo eggs are. We also told them about Steve's bacon explosion. Plus they are anxious to see Overlander64's vintage trailer and vintage tow vehicle -- and, to see everyone else in our group.

Mary and Reed have really been putting in the hours to make the campground a place that makes you want to return -- again and again -- and it is working for us.

We had an easy trip most of the way south -- except for the occasional shower.

All the sites reserved for our group are close to the pavilion so we can have a great time in spite of the occasional rain.

Travel safely everyone ...

OK. I have decided to make this one in spite of rain or whatever. My wife and I and our partially/never finished trailer will arrive tomorrow evening hopefully before dark.

Hey Cap'n,

Nice to see you can join us. Fortunately, we can bounce ideas off one another since we both have early 50's Flying Clouds. If you can nail down a closer time tomorrow we can ensure you some food. Of course I am sure there will be plenty of food as always, and we'll all likely be up anyhow.

Heading out soon...rain isn't bad here at all and is spotty at best.

Steve

Wow...I just got a PM from Mc Camper suggesting tackle Nerf football in the muddy areas of the campground. Those Macs are quite the courageous bunch.

Don't worry...I'll bring the Nerf ball, but I I'll leave Amy to the first aid.
