Free Hamburgers

OK, guys, if you won't come willingly, we'll bribe you.

Gary and I will be providing hamburgers and the requisite goodies for fixings, if you require anything weird, such as jalapenos or possum droppings, bring it along for yourself.

We'll also bring firewood and build a nice big fire, but probably not as big as a bonfire due to it being a Preserve.

We'll have a potluck Saturday afternoon (including our burgers) and if it rains there's a covered shelter house we can use.

There is electricity, easily accessible bathrooms, and water fill-ups all over the place.

We just got home from there this weekend, and it was simply beautiful.

I'll start an attendee list pretty soon. Check in, OK?

RaChelle,
Put us down for 5.2. Max won't be eating.
We had a great test run this weekend and will be mostly ready for Pecatonica in two weeks!! Yea!!!! I even know how to work the awning now. We will bring some sort of sweet, but a dish to pass is easy too. I also have some fire wood to throw in.
See ya all there........

Smile Still Planning On Coming

Just checked the Weather Channel 10 Day forcast. Even though it shows a chance of rain on Friday we still intend on coming.
Fixing the freshwater tank strainer this week and doing a little work on the van, so, we should be in good shape.
The better half is up for potluck and deserts.
See You There,
Tom and Sue.

Northern IL - So Wisconsin Oct 14 '05 AUTUMNFEST

I have marked the date in my daily calendar and plan on making the trip -- unless the dealer has to keep my Suburban when I take it in on Monday (the 4WD transfer case electronic controls have started to blow fuses again -- the 7th time since I purchased the truck new) -- the last time this happened, the dealer had the truck for nearly two weeks trying to get the necessary repair parts.

I am trying to make arrangements to get away on Friday, but that is not too promising at present -- I will definitely be able to get away in the early AM on Saturday.

Kevin

We have heat in the trailer!!!! Man that Suburban 22 kicks out some heat raised the temp from 60 to 72 in 10 minutes. Co detector didn't show any thing, so I guess all is well. Now for the water system.

Just a clearification on the address if any of you are map challanged like me.

7260 Judd Rd & 14260 Brick School Road is the address per the Winnebago COunty Forist Preserve web sight. From what I have found this corner is a bend in the road that goes from east, west (Brick School Rd.) to north, south (Judd Rd.) The entrance must be off the "corner"

This is not ment to step on any toes......

OUCH!! MY TOES!!

KIDDING.. anything any of us can do to help each other is JUST FINE.

Brick School Road DOES have a Judd Road sign at the curve. But you'll see the entrance with little or no trouble. Also, you can pm me for our phone number in case you get turned around. That way if any of us have any trouble,, we'll have a contact person. OK?

Thanks for the reply, Tedd, it might be just us and your family, and there have been a few more people commit. THank HEAVENS.

I have called the newspaper. they may or may NOT come see us.

Cool Weekend

The weather for this weekend is looking FANTABULOUS!

We are seriously considering playing HOOKY from work, and heading out Friday night,a nd NOT coming to work saturday :-)

That's the plan for THIS minute :-)

It really depends on what happens sales-wise, and lay-a-way wise at the shop this week, and I won't know till Friday afternoon.

We are leaving Friday late morning. That should put us out there around noonish.

Both water leaks are fixed, but the pump does not seem up to the task. I will look into this further tomorrow. Maybe I can find a spot near the water hook up and just tap into it.
