Jeff, yeah it was Sunday, 28th. Like Loudruff and Lou P it was being towed by a van. If that wasn't you I don't know how we missed you. We were the 66 Safari.

Let me know!
Lou,
We might be interested depending upon when and where. Right now we are thinking of attending the WBCCI Autumn Leaf Rally in Pennsylvania from 10/2 thru 10/9. We are probably pretty close to sending our registration in for that one.

We have also considered joining the Mid-east Michigan WBCCI Unit for their fall rally in Metamora 10/21-10/23, but we've made no official decision. Louapalooza (a.k.a. the August Forum Metro Detroit Rally) a couple of weeks ago was so much fun we might just have to lean to Louapalooza II (a.k.a. an October Metro-Detroit Forum Rally), if there is a conflict with the Mid-East rally. Too many rally's, too little time.

I'll have to check with the boss before we make any decisions. In the meantime, I'll keep watching this space.

WOW! Thanks for the kind words, Joe. Louapalooza 1.0 was a BLAST! I think we should call this one Louapalooza 1.5!
I was thinking the weekend of October 14-16. This will cover all three of my and Candie's anniversaries; First Date: October 16, 1987/ Proposed marriage: October 14, 1989/ Wedding: October 15, 1994. I would LOVE to share that with all of you!
I am not sure where we could go yet. Does anyone have any sugguestions? Do we want to have it at Covenant Hills again? If we did, the potluck could be held in the "Meeting Place" hall again that would keep us out of any inclement weather. I am not picky, though. Anything will work as long as we can all get together!
Someone has mentioned doing something in the Irish Hills area. Let's get some suggestions!

Something a little south?

How would all of you feel about something out by Milan? It is about an hour outside of Detroit off of US-23.
Let me know who would be interested in going.
I have found two campgrounds in that area that have heated, indoor halls that we can use free of charge.
I have never camped in Michigan after Labor Day. I think it will be awesome to do so!

I'd say something near Milan would be OK location wise. Might make it harder to get to after work than Covanent Hills was, plus it gets darker sooner. We'd probably have to take Friday off work if we wanted to set up camp in the daylight, but I have already mentioned to Lorrie that we might just have to do that for these late year events. Luckily we've got a couple of floating vacation days left to do something like that.

As far as late year camping, last year we camped on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada (same latitude at the U.P., eh) the last two weeks of September, returning home October 1st or 2nd. We had great weather (warm & sunny) and other than turning the heater on in the morning for a few minutes a couple of times, we were never cold, but I think we were lucky weather wise. With the WBCCI Autumn Leaf Fesitval in PA, possibly Louapalooza 1.5, and possibly the WBCCI Mid-East Rally, all in October we will definitely be expanding the 'ole camping envelope this year.

I think it will be great to be camping when the leaves are turning - certainly those vintage Airstream publicity photos from the '60's that show such scenes are very inviting.

Ja Do Campground in the Irish Hills!

Well, I have called around and it looks like Ja Do Campground in the Irish Hills, (Tipton, MI), looks to be our best bet.
Their web-site is: www.jadocampground.com
Please take a look and let me know what all of you think!
I think the Irish Hills in October will be AWESOME.
They also have "Lucky Lou the Leprachaun"! He and I may be able to bond or something! After all, I am Irish!

Electrical??

Hey Lou,
Check on what electrical service they have there. When we were there they had an overnight spot for us and it was 20 amp. I think more in the regular spots is available, but please check for us. It was a nice mom and pop kind of park. They have a small playground for the little gals. At least it was clean!

If you do it they will come

How could any one not want to camp with Lou.
Any place any time we are up for it.

But we are already booked for the 13 thru 15 weekend.

But if any one really has the need to go camping the Metro Detroit Unit of the WBCCI is having our Fall Rally the weekend of September 23,24,25 at Grovland Oaks in Oakland County.

Any and all are welcome to come on down or up what ever the case may be.

I know I am no Lou but I will do my best to keep the masses entertained, just do not expect a full moon at the Saturday campfire.

Contact me if interested PM email or phone.

I am a little slow on PM I fail to notice that I have them.
