Spring Gathering in Northern Illinois

Greetings Airstreamers. Time to shake off the cabin fever and start thinking about
Spring Camping Trips
Come join us for the Annual Spring Gathering at Pecatonica in northern Illinois May 20, 21 and 22.
This quiet County Park is located between Rockford and Freeport and is an easy drive from Chicago, Eastern Iowa and Southern Wisconsin.
Sites have 30 amp electric, water hydrants throughout the park to fill your tanks when you arrive, and a dump station. Check out the parks webpage for some of the other amenties.
http://www.wcfpd.org/preserves/pecatonica-river/
Spend the days checking out the local activities, indulge youself at the potluck dinners and swap stories around the fires at night.

Hope you can join us.
Tom and Sue

we'll be there! we need the rest before our memorial day opener! I have seen lots of airstream trailers in lake county, if you are reading this get it together and hang out with a great crowd at a super relaxed park.

Cale; Tom has a grate, I have 2 and there is the one on the firebox. We could line them with foil and bake over wood. We could do about 4 at a time.
I tried to get this on TAC but it woul;dn't let me post.

Ian, Carolyn, Welcome to the Forum and congrats on your new Airstream.
Hope you can make it up to Pec. If you have any questions post them up here and we'll be glad to help.
Cale, Mike. I've got a grate with legs and a tripod with an adjustable grate we could try. Never did a pizza over a fire. Verrry interesting.
Looking forward to getting out and 'streaming. Sue's been asking, "Is it time to go camping yet?"
She's also been asking if the trailer will be ready. She doesn't want to look inside while its apart.
The new plumbing is in and the rebuilt sink cabinet is in its final stages.

See you all soon,
Tom and Sue

Cale, pizza sounds good at the outing, something new the group has not tried.
Pretzels rolls would also be great too.

Pizza Parlor Theme? Old Chicago style with straw hats and red checked table cloths and root beer floats...balloons with feet? anybody feeling me on this? Bueller?

Anyhow, it is on our calendar and we'll be there with our pizza fixings and hubs 1337 dough makin' skillz. We've been trying to perfect this recipe for philly cheesesteak pizza for a while now. Should be lots of fun!

Italian Dinner/Pizza Night?
I think we’re on to something here. Checkered table clothes and decorations shouldn’t be a problem.
Pizza. Sausage and Peppers. Pasta.
Dino, Frankie and Tony for background music.
I think we’ve got an offer we can’t refuse.
More details to follow. Keep checking in on this thread.

Tom.

Sorry I am a little late in replying to questions. We have an '08 25' Safari SE. We took it out last weekend for the first time to the State part near St Louis, Pierre Marquette, only 10 other campers in 80 spots. Felt like 30 mph cross winds coming and going but it pulled like there was nothing behind us.
All systems worked fine until we noticed a leak coming from under the shower. I have not had the time to trouble shoot but the forums here (some 10pgs worth) seem to point to seal issues around the door vs plumbing leaks. Other than that it was an enjoyable experience and our list of forgotten things although long is manageable. Most enjoyable feature is the wrap around windows. Stopped at the way side table near Beardstown and had lunch in the trailer with a beautiful view out the windows...beats our usual stop at Mac D's.

Ian & Carolyn

Welcome Ian & Caroline. I notice that you are from Milan, Dana and I are from Davenport. We will be going up on Thursday and you would be welcome to tag along. We have been going to Pec for 4 years now and enjoy the campground and area. You can contact me by clicking on the Airtandem and send a priv. message.
Until later, Mike
