Post We're In

You can count us in. Charged up a couple of batteries today to check out capacity in case there's no 110 ac. Now that's its cooler out maybe I'll give the GT a wash and wax this weekend.
Tom & Sue.

Northern IL - So Wisconsin Oct 14 '05 AUTUMNFEST

Greetings flamingo-kid 1!

I didn't realize just how close Pecatonica, IL is to my new location (only about 157 miles). It looks like I may be able to arrange my schedule so that I can attend with the Minuet -- probably won't be able to get there until Saturday morning (couldn't get on the road any earlier than 4:00 p.m. on Friday and that would take a near miracle based on the past few weeks). Only potential issue that I may encounter is when the movers schedule the move of my household from far Southern Illinois to my new location.

At one time, I drove by the Forest Preserve near Pecatonica on a regular basis. Never stopped, but have always been curious.

Kevin

We visited the Forest Preserve this morning and it is BEAUTIFUL.

We talked to the Camp Host about our Rally, and he said go for it.

Please check your calendars and piggy banks for gas money, and chime in here :-)

I HOPE there'll be fall colors, but we've had a HORRIBLE drought this summer.

Pecatonica Forest Preserve

Yes, there is electricity, anywhere from 15 amps to 50 amps
There is no water hook up, but they have fill-up spots all over.
There is a dump station, and easily accessed bathrooms.

Plus a hoot owl.

It is really a great place, but it's not near city "doings".. Pecatonica has an ice cream shop and a pizza place, and a few little stores; plus a grocery.

Everyone needs to be prepared to come and relax for a time.
It's not exactly "high energy."

OK, I have pulled all the big parts out of the Overlander (Shell Shock) It looks like this will work for short weekend trips like RaChelle has stared here for all of us. (Thank you)

Form what I can read here it looks like there will be about 5 or 6 of us there. Cool!!!
I will be at the Northern Illinois unit instalation rally next weekend to try things out. Will they love to see a smashed coach.

Any thoughts on a designated marshmallow roasting time???

Wish we could join you, but our "gotta get out of here" escapade is going to be this next weekend to Traverse City, Michigan. Drat, I wish the timing were different because we'd love to spend some time with you Airstreamers at your rally. By the way, if any one has any tips for a weekend in the Traverse City area, please post them or PM me. Max has a day of business, but we'll have at least one good day there outside of the traveling time. We'll be going sans Gypsy, I am sad to say. Have fun in the woods

I have the semi-permanet tail lights ready to install now. I can not wait to see the looks on the faces at the unit installation rally this weekend. They are my test run for the October relaxation rally.
