Two weeks away from our May Rally and there are only three sites remaining in the loop. There's still time reserve a spot if you'd like to join us.
AccuWeather's forecast for the Thomson area claims it will be sunny with highs in 60s.
I hope they're right.
I de-winterized the Tradewind 3 weeks ago thinking it wouldn't be dipping below freezing for much longer. Went out today to start cleaning up and found a wet carpet, ruptured water pipe and broken water intake strainer.
I suspect after the ice melted in the pipe the water heater drained out through the split. Not an uncommon occurrence in a Vintage rig, just a PIA to fix.

Should be repaired in a couple of days.
We'll be out Thursday in site 86.

See you all soon,
Tom

I talked to Dana today and she wanted to let everyone know there will be a Rally Fee to cover the the cost of the meals. The amount will be determined on a per-person basis.
She also wants to remind everyone to bring their favorite store bought cookie for Friday night.
Lets wish for good weather and we hope to see everybody soon.

Safe Travels.
Sue

We are about 2 weeks out for the second rally of the year. It will be good to get out from the winter doldrums .
Point of information: We will be on the Mississippi River bike path, 60 + miles from Rock Island to Savanna so bring bikes. The second, we are close to Fulton where there is a Windmill that was made and transported in sections to Fulton from the Netherlands. There is a museum across the street from the windmill and it is on an extension of the bike path.
Hope to see all there;
Mike & Dana

I just received a cancellation notice from the campground. I called and checked with them. They are closing the campground for this weekend due to flooding. Not sure what this means for everyone. Someone else should confirm that this is fact.

Important Rally update

The COE will be closing the Thomson Causeway Park this weekend due to the possibility of flooding along the Mississippi River. The Rally will be relocated to Mississippi Palisades Park for Friday through Sunday.
Park Details are here:
https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/Parks/C...Palisades.aspx
Mike and Dana and Sue and I will be there Thursday night to catch any stragglers.
The park will be CLOSED Friday morning. It is recommended that you travel directly to the Palisades. Sites are available on a first come first served basis. We will try to gather near site 105.
Hope this doesn't impact your plans too badly.

See you at the Palisades,
Tom and Sue

Just a bit more technical info. (and a not so subtle thread bump)
Actionable” flood stage on this part of the River is 16 ft. NOAA predictions are that the River will reach 16.1 ft at 1:00 PM Friday May 4th.
The Palisades are about 15 miles north of Thomson and are reached by taking IL84 north through Savanna. The Park is about 2 miles north of Savanna.
A check of Reserve America found sites 88-104 appear to be available. Its recommended that you arrive early on Friday to secure a site with the group.

Tom
