I just double-checked my GPS, and the address is:

Winnebago Forrest Preserve District
Pecatonica River Campground
7260 Judd Road
Pecatonica, IL 61063


According to my GPS, the driections from the I-39/US 20 intersection are:

Continue (West) onto US Hwy 20>for 14.03 mi (From I-39)
Turn Right (North) onto N Winnebago Rd>for 3.81 mi
Continue (North) onto Winnebago Rd>for 1.9 mi
Turn Sharp Left (West) onto IL SH 70\Trask Bridge Rd\IL SR 70>for 4.3 mi
Turn Left (South) onto Judd Rd>for 1.3 mi
Final Destination
7260 JUDD RD, PECATONICA, IL 61063

It would be easier to take US20 west to Il 18 (Il State police hq on left and Pecatonica to the right) this is a stop light intersection. Follow through the town of Pecatonica to School Brick Road (?) there is a Blue sign "camping" turn right and follow past the Winnebago Maintainance bldg and SLOW down as you will come on the enterance fast.
Hope to see you all. I will be there Thurs noonish.

Greetings Steve and Linda. Glad you will be joining us this weekend, it will be nice to have a new member to our group.
All of us we new to Airstreams at one point in time and we are still learning. We just picked up our second one and we're learning all over again.
We come north through Pecatonica and turn right on Brick School Road. One thing that threw us off the first time was that when Brick School turns left at it's end it changes to Judd. The entrance to the park is about a 1/4 mile after the bend.

Departure

Tom just came in after getting soaking wet and proclaimed that we are as ready as we will ever be with the new trailer.
Everthing seems to work except the shower, so we will try to stay down wind.

Spring Brunch in Northern Illinois

Murphy's Law has been busy. Three different things came up this morning that will keep me tied up here at the farm until late this afternoon. Given the flurry of activity, I won't be able to make it up to Pecatonica.

Just wanted to take a quick second, and thank everyone for the great time we had this weekend.

I hope that all arrived at home as safely as we did.

Best to all,

Scott, Mary Patrick and Stephen

Another Great Forum Rally

What a great weekend! Hope you all arrived home safely.
We had the perfect combination of weather, AirHeads(as the camp host calls us), food and fun.
Iíve just finished uploading pics to the computer and Iíll post them after a bit of editing.

Thanks to everyone,
Tom and Sue.

us too

It was exactly the way Sue started the thread.. "shake the cobwebs out".. literally! Weather was great, although we cut our stay one day short due to incoming storms. Our weekends, due to our business, start Sunday.

Now if I could just figure out where in the camper those GREMLINS live.. the lid is missing from my sugar container and I left it right on the counter. It was on the container, I opened the container, and the lid disappeared into thin air.

Then, mysteriously, the top of the table holding my big plastic alien nightlight got cracked almost in half. It was fine when I put it togther ( 70's modular ) but is really cracked now. Not sure if it's repairable.. I've had that table for years and years.

And one of Sue's pink flamingos at the entrance to the park is missing.. maybe it' s hiding out with the lid to my sugar container?

The Recap.

Well, from all the reports we've heard everyone had a great time.
The park was in great shape. Despite heavy rain earlier in the week the sites were nice and dry. The rains also hatched a bunch of gnats.
No problem. The camp host Rodger had found that a couple dabs of Absorbine Jr. would keep them away for hours. We cleared the shelves of the Pecatonica pharmacy of their stock.
