Rally logo -- cool -- so to speak

Just saw the "Don't Winterize Yet" rally logo rotate through on the side of the page .... it's a neat logo with the icicles.

I was just informed that Amy has military obligations that Saturday. This is unfortunate, but we will keep hope that it falls through since there are no reservations required.

It can stop raining anytime now. The extended forcast says it *should* be dry next weekend, but we all know how accurate that is.

There was a little bit more information about the rally in the Southern Illinois Unit October newsletter.

Friday night will be a "chili dump" where everyone makes chili and it gets mixed together in a giant dutch oven over the fire. Anyone using habinero peppers in their chili will be tied to a tree and branded.

Saturday night will be similar, only the theme will be soup. I have no idea how this works out, but it says to bring your favorite vegetables to add to the soup kettle. Interesting.

Those are the only two meals that are mentioned in the newsletter.

Sounds like we're making stone soup!
We are coming on friday morning as of now. We may stay home if the forecast calls for an entire weekend of rain. We are just SO TIRED of rain. This year we have had only 2 trips without rain. Our awning has gotten alot of use this year!

Good luck with that Steve! There is no way we could do that and I am just to cheap to pay an extra $20 to get there after dark when most of them will be in bed by 9:00.

Do you have pictures up yet of the trip to Maine?

Stone Soup is what I thought of, too. I think it will be great fun!

The extended forecast does look decent, we must all give offerings to the weather gods for dry weather next weekend.

Oh, you would ask me that. Food always works, something seasonal like pumpkin seeds---or something decorative for their nests, like a little bittersweet. ?

Here's the text from the newsletter. It says we should try to park near shelter 1.


" The November rally will be at Forbes State Park, Friday-Sunday, November 6-8. Park near the one shelter in the camping area. There will be no organized activities. However, the Friday evening meal will be a common chili pot and the Saturday evening meal will be a common soup pot. Bring your favorite chili and vegetables to put in the common pots evenings. Bring your own hot dogs or brats for roasting over the open fire. The camping fee is $20/night which you will pay directly to the Park Ranger."

Stone Soup is a storybook, I believe. At any rate, a tale about an impoverished village, as I recall. Someone started a large kettle with stones in it, others contributed a carrot, turnip, cabbage, etc., until they had a wonderful pot of homemade soup full of ingredients contributed by the villagers. By themselves, they wouldn't have had soup, but together they did.
