Anyone else bringing kids or grandkids? Hope so! We'll have two. An 8-year-old boy and 4-year old girl. The boy, Ethan, is a veteran by now - he went to Alumapalooza with us and met more people than we did.

Hey there!

We planned to leave Tuesday, stop somewhere around Texarkana, and arrive Wednesday. But the weather forecast for here is terrible for Tuesday - severe thunderstorms with "possible isolated tornados". What is the forecast for the Mill Creek area for Tuesday and Wednesday? If we are delayed, we can actually make the whole trip in one day on Wednesday, but we prefer to go only a couple hundred miles a day (especially with kids and dog!).

Depends on when this storm front comes through and how bad it's supposed to be between here and there. As of tonight's news, it looked like Texarkana would be about the worst place to be Tuesday night!

Also, ya'll don't hold me to making gumbo - have to carry so many ingredients, plus need BIIIIGGGG rice cooker. I may do it anyway, but not sure I want to haul half the kitchen & pantry down. Even if I don't get enough energy to do gumbo, I'll do something equally good. And a dessert, too.

I'm assuming from looking at the park map that our site is fairly near the playground? That's where the grands will probably want to hang out. Also, are the park roads good for bicyles? Trying to decide whether to bring our grandson's bike or not.

Esmerelda is ready to go. Battened down and turned 'er around today so we can just slip under 'er and take off.

Now if this gnarly storm system will just come on through and get it over with. I don't much like the idea of having the kids, the dog, and Esmerelda and hitting bad storms. We've been through several bad ones in our traylah since last February, and did fine. (And have the hail dings to prove it). Just kind of scary. In Ohio last summer a tornado ripped through less than a mile from where we were camped and did major damage.

We can't tell much about what the weather will be like down there. From what I can see locally, it looks like it may not even storm that far south.

In any case - see you soon. Anxious to meet more Airstream friends! It looks like this rally will be about the same size as AIR Midwest was - about 22 trailers?

(Top, sorry you can't make it. We've been looking forward to meeting you. Maybe next time!)
Glad yawl are geared up and ready to go. Ive been watching the weather pretty close and for the "Lakes Area" which is Mill Creek, Tuesday is just a chance of rain but later on towards the end of the day they call for 80% rain and mild thunderstorms. Nothing as bad as what yall will see up there.
Wednesday will be Sunny skies but cooler. And Thursday night will be the coldest night which we will dip down into the mid 30's. But its all clear skies after our little shower on Tuesday.
Im thinking if it were me, If the weather looked ok Id head out early in the A.M. on Tuesday and drive as far as I could past Texarkana. Maybe get somewhere down towards I-20 like Marshall, TX or Carthage,TX. If you need help finding a RV park let me know Ive got two programs I juse on my computer that let me know where every RV Park in the USA is.
Its not a very far drive from there to Mill Creek but it would give you enough time to get up that morning get the kiddos breakfast drink your coffe then head out and be at Mill Creek just in time for check in.
The reason Id drive that far is that would get you out of Tornado Alley as I call it. Seems that from I-20 down the tornados are not near as bad.
But thats just my thinking, Yall do what you think is best for you and your crew.

Now on the Gumbo, I dont blame you one bit if you dont make it, I was wondering myself how that was going to work out for you cooking in a camper. The main point of the rally is to come out and have a good time and relax, not to slave over a gumbo pot. But its whatever you are up for. But for me theres no hard feelings if you dont make it.

O and the playground, its not far at all from where we will be. The park is a very safe park and normally there are lots of kiddos running around and playing in the playground. The roads are great for a bike and the park is very large and he will have plenty of room to ride. Im bringing my bike maybe Ill have a riding partner.

Im really not sure how many folks are coming out, I havent updated in a while. Figured everyone was tired of me sending them out. Ill get one more out so everyone can get a final look.

Glad yawl are coming out, have a safe travel. See yawl soon!

Connie n Johnny
Connie n Johnny,

I dont see a problem with switching with you, we will just hang onto your original spot #82 in case we have another joining member or if not then I like HiHo's idea about setting up tables or having a meeting spot there.
You will have to contact me before you arrive so that I can be at the front gate to show the confirmation papers on that spot and let them know Im switching with you. Are you arriving on Friday?

Updated list

Ok everyone here is a updated list for the rally. If I have missed anyone or you havent put in your info such as number of person in the party, please try and do so by Wednesday. That is the day Im going to Smitty's Smoke House in Jasper on my way through to give them the final head count so they will know how much to cater for.

MC Park map.pdf
Rally Supper.pdf

We've had some cancellations so looks like as of now we are at 17 trailers.

Ive give the ok for Connie n Johnny to switch from spot 82 to spot 72.
So if anyone would like to attend then spot 82 is already reserved just waiting for someone to jump in and want the spot. Contact me for further details. Might even cut you a deal on it

Mr. S, as of now it will just be the 2 of us. Our Grandkids can't make it due to school.

Top,

Man you have a very talented Family. We'll miss you at Piney Woods but will surely see you down the road.

Good luck to her!

Looking at the "Rally Supper" document, I think we'll probably bring Smoked Gouda Mac & Cheese and perhaps a green veggie dish.

2 humans, 1 Fox Terrier. (the Bull Terrier in my avatar pic isn't yet happy enough about Airstream travel to take her on the socially-oriented trips.)

we are at mckinney falls state park now and tomorrow morning we will head east and spend a few days at wolf creek on the west side of lake livingston. never been there, but looks like and sounds like, from the reviews on rvpark reviews , to be a very nice place.

we are going to arrive at mill creek fairly early friday morning. i have no idea what we will contribute to the saturday eatathon....

do wee need drinks, or anything like that. be glad to provide something in that way.

looks like the weather will be pleasant and cooler... i am ready for cooler water. the weather in texas is still too hot for my liking

Glad yall are making your way down to the Piney Woods.
You can add in anything you like for the eatathon. Drinks would be good. But Im sure a lot of folks will be doing the BYOB thing

Weather will be great this weekend! Im loving this cooler weather myself.
Safe travels to you. We will see you soon.
