Midwest Rally at Rend Lake, IL 2010

After two excellent rally events last year, we are happy to announce we are going back to Whittington Woods in Benton.

Click for pics from last year's rally.

The rally dates are the 14-16 of May. The campground has full service facilities from laundry and shower houses to groceries and a free pavilion. We will have an informal potluck dinner on Saturday evening at the pavilion. Trailer tours for the interested will be held Saturday from Noon to 2PM.

The campground has an excellent pavilion and great fire ring. From what I have been told, all the sites on this loop are full hook-up sites.

Benton, IL has a quaint town square with several antique shops, the Pheasant Hill Winery, and several other small attractions that are very interesting. Fishing at rend lake is less than a mile away.

This will be a great time for all involved. Experienced, first timers, full timers, vintage kin, or anyone just looking to attend an Airstream rally are welcome.

AIR Midwest Midwest Rall at Rend Lake, IL 2010

Just made my reservations -- plan on arriving one day early and staying one day beyond rally. Looking forward to another fantastic rally!

Kevin

P.S.: Am allowing myself plenty of time to reconfigure the hitch for the Cadillac so shouldn't be arriving at the last minute as I did last year . . . .

Kevin,

I am sure it will be nice out enough to put the Cadillac top down in May. Besides, it's not very far from Marion to get to you!

Not sure we are atending Morraine View as we are planning a trip south to Oklahoma or Texas sometime in June before the family is separated in July.

Sorry you all can't make it, but the weekend before is Mother's Day, and the weekend after is our anniversary.

Steve

Hello, About how many trailers attend this event? Also can you view these private trailers? Just starting to look and see different ones, before we make a purchase. Lots to learn. Thanks! G.

GKIRON,

We just started sign up today, so the number of trailers will be unknown until later on in registration. We will have an open house on Saturday that you are welcome to attend. Many people will have plenty of info to give you if you want it.

Hey, this is only 3 months away!

My how time flies. OK, sign me up! Well - OK - I'm signed up. It will be nice to get out to this neck of the woods again and catch up with friends. That campgrounds looks beautiful.

Could there be such a thing as vegetarian armadillo eggs?

I was looking at the pics on Soldie rmedics post. The bacon weave looks great. What was rolled into the middle and how did it come out when it was all done? Lots of fat on that dish which is what makes it taste great.

Brian,

That was a Bacon Explosion. Search the term and you will find hundreds of variations. Over the bacon weave you smear pork sausage. Then top the sausage with fried bacon bits, BBQ sauce, and BBQ seasoning. Roll it up, smoke it, eat it, and die from a coronary. You only live once right?

Perhaps I will make another one this year for Saturday night.

Steve
