Yeah, I want to meet him too, in one piece. Elvis is still in the building, shell off frame. A bad winter among other things has pushed his completion date out quite a bit. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the fall.

As long as Dacia makes her dutch oven mac and cheese (50's Style) with crunchy topping, we can wait to meet Elvis next time!

The campground sent me an official list of who has called in reservations, and where they are tentatively placed on sites. They took total length or rig with tow vehicle into consideration. Anyone is welcome to move to a spot marked open, but let me know so I can change it with the campground. The sites above the pavilion are water only. Site 61 is very short, so if we get a caravel, bubble, or bambi we are set . 64 I am told is difficult to back into with the trees.

Looks like we are missing about 3 people from the signup page who have not yet made reservations. At least there are plenty of spots left. We plan on being there by noon on Saturday.

Hola from Costa Rica

Jack and I are leaving Costa Rica tomorrow morning for Missouri one month is a long time to be away from the Grandkids. We have not had internet access and we were glad to see 76Sovereign on the list of confirmed attendants. We are so looking forward to the rally. Will post more when we get home.

Pura Vida

OK Jack and I are NOT leaving Costa Rica

Our flight was canceled because of the snow in Denver...next flight on that same airline..APRIL 6th! We can't stay here until April!
So our only option was to buy other tickets on other airlines to get us to Missouri by Friday.....1600 bucks on top of the other round trip ticket! WTFREAK!

I think we had insurance for that.
Anyway Talk to you later in the week when we are home. SOOO looking forward to the Rend Rally

Kani and Jack

Kani,

Bummer about that. I hope they reimburse you for your expenses. Time to head back to Bioelly farms?

On a side note, I am listing the rally's link on Facebook in case anyone cares to sign up there and invite their friends.

Rend Lake Rally on Facebook

Steve

How exciting! Are you planning the full timing lifestyle, or just for a short time?

The campground will again be providing coffee and freshly made donuts for the group under the pavilion on Saturday morning!

Sorry Alice! I can't make any promises about the doughnut consumption on Saturday morning! All I know is that they are made fresh in West Frankfort down the road. The doughnut shop is actually what inspired me hosting the first rally. I was doing a physical for the shop owner, and thought the area was very beautiful. It would be a perfect rally location, and I told him we would order doughnuts from his shop.

Low and behold, Mary and Reed offered to get us doughnuts from there before I had told them the story about it.

It's a delicious win/win situation

Steve
