Site F-9

Laird and I drove over to Moraine View this morning to check out our site. We noticed that a big tree in the F loop has died. The tree is a lone tree towards the north end of the F loop (opposite end from the water front sites.) The trunk of the tree is probably still sound. However, if we have a storm with strong winds, some of the branches might come down. Site F-9 looked as if it was in the greatest danger of falling limbs.

Perhaps the tree will be taken down or at least topped out before the rally; though the funds may not be available to take the tree down.

Did anyone notify the ranger?

F-9 reserved for Fri and Sat nights

We didn't see a need to notify the ranger. The camp hosts are on site. It is obvious that the tree is dead. At least one tree by P-14 had already been removed and the stump ground out. Lots of mowing was going on yesterday when we were there so grounds maintenance seems to be happening.

We reserved F-9 for Friday and Saturday nights to keep it within our group for the two nights when we have our hot dog supper and potluck/movie night.

If the tree is gone or topped off before the rally or if someone wants to give the site a try with the tree there, let me know and we'll release F-9.

So, right now maccamper has F-9 reserved for Friday and Saturday night. It is available to use as a location for food tables or the "menfolk" activities mentioned in an earlier post (ha!) -- though canoeing on the site may be difficult.

We do have a tent we can bring if it appears that we need to have something set up on F-9 to keep the reservation.

I don't think you can hold on to a site with nothing on it. I remember they once gave away a spot that we attempted to reserve onsite for a last minute attendee. They wouldn't allow us on site to make the reservation since we already had a spot. How did you pull this off, especially when they will check off the site when you get to the registration cabin?

An individual can reserve more than one site, tho, can't they?

You just have to list who will be occupying. I have done that before.

Reserve America may be easier to deal with than the individual whims of camp hosts.

I remember the very hot rally one year, when the camp host decided on his own to turn off the electricity for an indefinite time period.

I went through Reserve America to reserve the site and saw no red flags or anything that said we couldn't reserve two sites. We will bring a 6 person tent and air mattresses and set it up on F-9.

When we check in, I'll let the host know that we have two sites -- one with the trailer and one with the tent. I don't know why it would be a problem since we plan to use both sites and paid for both sites.

Yep my encounter was prior to the Reserve America days. I know at some Illinois Corp of engineer sites, they now tie the site to the auto or truck parked on site. They've had issues with folks pitching tents to hold sites for friends or to extend their stay beyond the 14 day limit. If they don't see a motorized vehicle, they know something is up. But that's in the campgrounds close to St Louis. Some folks were tying up spots all season by using alternate email addresses, tents placed on first come first serve spaces and site swapping. They finally got wise and started using the motorized vehicle as one of the ways to determine if sites are being tied up by the same person(s). Personally I understand since was frustrating to see the sites filled by the same trailers week after week.

I agree with the spirit of what may have been past or current guidelines.

If the site were a good site without a dead tree looming over it, I would feel guilty about taking the opportunity away from another camper.

We usually have two vehicles at Moraine View since we drive back and forth to Bloomington during the rally.

I guess if it wasn't meant to be then fate or karma will have a limb fall on my SUV or on the tent hopefully without me in it.

Hard to imagine they won't at least do something about overhanging, dead tree limbs, before they allow someone to camp in that site.

Trimming tree limbs is pretty straightforward.

Goodness! Just a couple of years ago you were complaining about the price of the new 20's and now you have a 26? One thing if it rains at the potluck there is room for everyone in your dinette!
