Hello fellow airstreamers,

Can you add one more to the "save-a-spot" list? We won't be up there till Friday evening 9:00ish (maybe earlier if Dave can bug out of work early). I will bring a Greek Salad (if no one else is) for Saturday potluck. Looking forward to it! Also, we are newbies and welcome any advice on backing up!

Nancy and Dave

Rather than take a lot of space trying to explain how to back up when you get here there are many of us lots of experience will help better than doing it here. Bill

Woke up to light rain, weather seems to be improving. Plenty of open spots other group down from us at the other side of the park.

See all soon have a safe trip.

Hi Tom,

Wife and I have a 65 safari undergoing resto. Knew it would not be ready this time around. We did drive through Seward campground around 12:30 today as we were at Pec fairgrounds. my inlaws sell primitive furniture there.
I saw some nice airstreams but no one around. I bet everyone was as Pec! We hope you all have a great time. We hope next time well be there!

Hope everyone is back home safe and sound after the Rally.
We've unloaded, washed the smoky clothes, cleaned the mud from a bunch of stuff and are looking forward to something other than a "Navy Shower" in wet bath.
Thanks to everyone who came out. I'll post a recap in a couple of days.

Tom.

Another thanks for a "Great Weekend". Looking forward for the "Fall Rally in Northern Illinois". The time has been set for Columbus day weekend, and place is tentative for Lowden State Park.
We are moving because the Winnebago Forest Preserve District does not appear to be receptive to campers with their high fees and out of county surcharge. (electric $8.00 and the $10.00 per night surcharge). Sites are grass with water hydrants and dump station. The electric is shared, but far apart..

Disspite the rough reception $$$ we had a great time camping with a great group of people. It seems everyone had a little pre-season trouble with their campers but plenty of knowledge all around got everyone trailer back in working shape. Just to clarify the distaste for our usual Winnebago county parks gatherings spring and fall, each trailer previously paid $13 a night with electric, no shower house. To our surprise, the 2014 season rate is $29 a night, over double! So we will be moving on and heading to Lowden, the reservable sites will be nice. Can't wait!

As Cale stated $29 handicap & srs. others $31 per nite non campers $30 to dump County res. fees less, only thing didn't chrg. for was muddy sites. All had exc. time in spite of high fees & mud w/lots to eat all day. several AS owners stopped by & visited & 1 new AStreamer joined us for weekend. Saw rollover between Rochelle & Dekalb on way home all indications fatal. Glad all made home safely. See every one at Moraine view in 3 Weeks or Lowden S.P. [Oregon Il.] In Oct. Bill
