Update

A few peopel ahve asked me a few things..

Reservations are not available at a Forest Preserve, but the Camp Host does know us (Gary and I and the dogs are there pretty often) and will help us stay together.

We'll keep a campfire going pretty steady, and try to set up a visiting center ASAP.

Saturday's dinner will be at 5 p.m... I'd like to eat early since it's getting darker earlier and we have visitors with no camper.. that will give us lots of time to eat and visit.

Dessert potluck sometime after ;-)

Food.. Yummmmmm...

The order for dinner is placed.. we'll be picking it up in the caterer's pans and will have to heat the pulled pork.. they have two (other, ours isn't big) big events planned for the same day and need us to be out of the way by two.. so that's fine with Gary..

I've ordered pulled pork, buns, bowtie pasta salad, potato salad and baked beans. Those were the caterer's recommendations.. so anyone requiring special or different diet will have plenty of time to pick it up.

For those of you new to Pec, there's a grocers in town, on the main street.

Price ended up being less than I thought.. so it's seven bucks apiece. You can pay me, or Gary, when you see us.

All the signs are here for you all to have a great rally weekend: cool, crisp fall weather, shiny trailers, great food, even greater 'streamers coming in for the fun. Best wishes, and be sure to post the after-pics so the rest of us can enjoy your celebration, from afar ~G

One last thing....

I will be travelling to Skokie (Chicago suburb) tomorrow afternoon to pick up our son Eric.... and we will come directly from Skokie to Pec; should be there around five. I can't snag him until after his work, and he works until three.

Gary is bringing Luna out earlier in the day,(Thursday) and then coming in to work for awhile........ he'll close early and hopefully be your greeting committee :-)

Everybody is on their own tomorrow night for dinner.. I have NO IDEA what WE are going to do.
I know that Eric always likes to stop at Starbucks for our ride home, so we'll be JACKED :-) WATCH OUT !!

See you all soon.. have a VERY safe trip.

Thumbs up

Hi All!

We made it home safe and sound. It took no time at all to get the trailer all put away... I mean no time. LOL!

Thanks to everyone for the trailer tours, all the great info and the wonderful hospitality. We felt at home right from the start. The only thing the kids said they missed was "our trailer"... so you'all don't have to worry, I'll have plenty of reminders to keep at it.

I hope to see you all down the road.

Home Safe and Sound

The Holmbergs are home safe and sound.. and we really did have a GREAT rally.. we saw old friends and collected some new ones, too... and WELCOME to those guys :-)

I hope we didn't concern you too much with Sue's cavorting under the Halloween moon.. awww, never mind :-)

The only complaint that I have is that I really think that the trees could have accommodated us a BIT more and been a little bit brighter ;-)

Some of you may have noticed that Gary packed us up int eh POURING rain and left like his BUTT was on fire.. well, in actuality, the Bears Game was starting in an hour.

I've been sitting here cropping and cutting rally pictures.. so here they come...
