2 Months Out

Well, we're about 2 months out from the Lasagna and Lilacs in Lowden Spring Rally. Hopefully the weather will be like it was today. 71 deg, sunny with a mild south breeze. Spring has finally arrived. The Robins are in the trees the Sandhill Cranes are heading north and that damned chipmunk is out from hibernation and running around in my garage.

Starting to get the Tradewind ready for the season. I had a rare weekday off and spent some time airing out the trailer, checking for mice, none, and pulling wiring for a new radio.
Sue and Dana are working on the activities and will be posting soon about the Potluck lasagna dinner.

I checked the campground map and there are 10 sites reserved for the weekend. The inner loop is filled and there are 5 left on the outer ring.

Mike and Carrie Anne, welcome. Looking forward to meeting you. We've had Airstreamers from the West and South but you are the first from above the border.

See everyone soon.
Tom

The merry month of May is coming soon. So lets's shed our layers of winter clothing and eat lasagna at our very own Lilac Lasagna Festival at Lowden.

Are you hungry yet? Saturday nite is our usual potluck at 6o pm. As discussed at our final outing of the season our theme will be lasagna. Bring your favorite main dish lasagna cooked to share and ready to be devoured. In your other hand to share bring a layered appetizer or dessert . After dining we will be voting and crowning our very own Lilac Queen.
Dana and I will be posting our items shortly. See everyone soon.

Ok, so it was nice last weekend, my 345 was is road worthy condition, and I was itch'n for a road trip. So the wife (to be) and I took a ride in the Airstream to the park. It's about a 100 mile (one way) trip
We just went up there looked around and came back the 345 ran ok
(I still think 220* is too hot for engine temp)
On Monday I took out the 190 thermostat and put a 160 in I flushed out the coolant system and filled it back up with water and "water wetter" in the hopes the next trip will provide a little cooler engine temp's
Also today I installed 6 lower marker lights (all L.E.D's) top ones were replaced in MUCH colder weather in February.

We're just 4 weeks out from our Spring Rally.
Time to finish prepping our Airstreams for another season on the road.
I've got a couple of projects to finish up and then start stocking up for the season.
Grosspoluter Looks like your ahead of everyone. We were out in Oregon at an antiques fair a few weeks ago and drove into the campground. Nothing set up yet, no hosts and everything was still in hibernation. The campground loops were still gated but the sites looked fairly dry even after the snow melt and light rain that day.
Have you been perusing your recipes books over the winter? Decided on your favorite layered foods for the Potluck? Sue and Dana have working on Saturdays potluck decorations and activities for a while now. Sue says to remember to bring your main dish of lasagna and a layered dish to pass. Either an appetizer or dessert.
We can't wait to get out of the house and go camping.

See everyone soon,
Tom and Sue

It's about 3 weeks to our spring rally. Looking to be another great one.

FYI; there is another camping group that has Lowden or Rock Cut on their schedule for Columbus day Weekend. Dana and I have camped with them times, they are a fun group; a bunch of SOB's (Some Other Brand) trailers. They are about the same size of group as us. Either way, we should think about reserving NOW.

Hey people! We had our (WBCCI) Spring Opener in Amboy this past weekend, and we thought we'd stop by Lowden for a few days before heading home. I am surprised that this late into April, the front loop has been closed. There are no camp hosts. On the other hand, it's nice and quiet! Since the showers are closed it's also eighteen bucks a night. On the other hand it's cold and windy! Nice to be here though. Just pulled the Airstream out of hibernation. Heading back to Chicago Friday.

Please post what side layered dish you will be bringing with your lasagna.

See everyone soon!

Food?

Ok so a few things about us (Amy & I) you all should know...
First and foremost we are NOT cooks, if it dosent come out of a cardboard box and can't fit in a microwave I prety much give up.
BUT Amy makes a prety good spinach dip served with Hawaiian bread!
I'd be willing to bring that and chips? Cookies? Pop? Beer? All of the above?
One other thing my brother just started running the (very small) store at the park he's calling it "Quirkies" (our last name is Quirk) he's opening up shop this weekend May 2nd.
I thought about going out there this weekend... But I don't want to be put to work
