Hey Roger; we can all bring a can of silver paint and paint that "BORN FREE" and we can than call it the NEW AS MOHO. Now you will not be a SOB, just part of the group.
I guess, we will now have to bring the trikes.
Mike

I was thinking of bringing some tinfoil and aluminum duct tape and doing it up right, Mike!

I was hoping you'd see that post... yes, if the weather looks ok for the weekend, we'll bring them too... it'll be a great time!

Moraine View June 2016

Maybe it rained because I wasn't there to scare it away!

Roger, glad to see you picked up F2. So far so good with Patty. We are keeping our fingers crossed.

Time is passing fast, 2 months and it will be time.

Jack

...let's hope we don't need it. I think that was by far the worst storm we've seen there in all these years. Even the drainage ditches filled within minutes.

Not that I think I could happen, but this is Illinois, the state that has run nearly a year without a budget. I suspect several other parks will close as well before this budget proxy war in Springfield is over. Hopefully all will hold tight for the next 6 or so weeks, but this is somewhat disconcerting, particularly since Moraine was closed last time the budget was held hostage by now incarcerated ex-governor Blagojevich.

I just read Eric's post on the possible closing of Illinois SP's. I saw where 2 were CLOSED today.
Any thoughts on a contingency plan if Moraine View closes? Jack as the leader or Maggie as she lives in the area Is there a county or private park?

Comlara Park is just north of Bloomington, a decent county park but not as nice as Moraine View.

If Moraine View closes, there would likely be a run on available sites up there.

We have a group trip to Ramsey Lake State Park planned over July 4th. Ramsey was one of the parks said to have been closed. I called the park office yesterday and was told they are not closed, but the power has been tuned off for the State's failure to pay the bill. The campground is still open. It just has no power for now. As I understand it, the two parks said to be closed (Ramsey + another) receive power from the same utility which apparently, didn't want to float the State any longer. The IL DNR website currently indicates nothing unusual regarding Moraine View. Hopefully, it remains that way and the electric bills are paid for Ramsey and the other.

I remember I had checked into a park in nearby Rantiule. it was called Prarie Pines. It had 95 sites and is just south and a little east of Moraine View. That was my backup site when Moraine was in jeopardy.

I just got off the phone with Moraine View.

The ranger told me the power is still on and garbage is still being picked up, but he said that it's entirely possible that they could shut off power and/or stop picking up garbage at anytime. None of the DNR's vendors have been paid to date. Should power be turned off and/or garbage pickup cease, the ranger told me outright that they would in fact close the park and it's really mainly based on the electricity and garbage vendors. Some vendors have cut power, and/or stopped garbage pickup at other DNR facilities, while other have not....yet. Though from what I read here, some parks still stayed open under these conditions, this ranger made it clear, Moraine wouldn't stay open if power and/or garbage services ceased.

So for now, we're ok, but I suspect we'll just need to keep an eye open as the situation could change at anytime.

That looks like a really nice alternative, Jack.
