Spring Brunch in Northern Illinois


Were back again for our annual spring gathering in Pecatonica.
Well shake out the winter dust and cobwebs from our rigs and have a Spring reunion the last weekend of May, Fri 29 through Sunday the 31st.
Were planning a Sunday morning brunch and a pot luck on Saturday night.
Details to follow. Let us know what you think. Were always open to suggestions.

Tom and Sue.

is spring coming?

I'm watching the weather today.. it's supposed to be spring.. but we're expecting 4 inches of snow!

We certainly will TRY to attend the rally, depending on the minute/day/week/month/years malfunctions!

We will, at the very least, run out there and yell yoo-hoo.

The car is in the shop to get all of the bits and pieces taken care of. So we will see ya'll there.
The plan is to get out there early Friday morning. We will have to boggy early Sunday.

Hello Tedd,
Glad to see your going to make it. I have got to get my new (to me) aluminum propane bottles fitted with the new valves, serviced, and installed and work on my tow vehicle as well (oil change and brakes...)

Tom, I got you message. Thanks, were looking forward to this as well. I will keep an eye out for the food sign up sheets, when you start to circulate them.

best to all,

Gosh, I sure hope you guys can make it. Even if it is just for the day either Saturday or Sunday. We'll save you a spot around the campfire...

Hope to see you,

New Vintage

Yesterday was a big day here. Weve acquired a new trailer!
After 2 years of searching we finally found the right combo of model, location and price we were looking for, a 1972 Tradewind Double.
After being used as a weekend get-away in Door County its getting a good cleaning. The interior is original and in good condition.
Were planning on bringing it to the Gathering and looking for all your ideas on decorating and restoration. With the help of our Forum friends we can return it to its former glory, maybe even better.

See you soon,
Tom and Sue.

Stress Time

The Holmbergs are considering travelling up to Wisconsin the weekend before this rally for a big farm sale. (buying for the shop)

We are considering (not committed yet) taking the box truck, tow vehicle, Airstream, 3 Jack Russells and Eric.

I'm not a big drinker.. BUT....
