Okay, I stand corrected in specifics but DID have the concept correct.

No full hookup. Just electric and shared water spigots. Since when do you need full hookups? Have you snuck a bathroom in there lately?

You mean the bucket of sawdust? Or the sponge for the bath ... Actually I was concerned if I would have the amps to run some milk house electric heaters ... 1500/1300 watts. Not to mention plugging in my blankie ...

You should have no problem running two 1500 watt heaters and your blanket on a 30 amp connection.

WBCCI membership not required.

This is a very low-key rally. No business meeting. No schedule. Just camping. We'll burn copious amounts of firewood to stay warm and there will be a chili dinner on Saturday. I'll provide more information about that later.

We'll be camping at Stephen A. Forbes State Park in near-peak fall colors. It's a beautiful park for canoeing and kayaking. Sites have electric and water is available year-round from freeze-proof spigots.

No reservations required. There will be a few deer hunters using the campground as a base camp, otherwise we have the place to ourselves. Just pull in, grab a spot and have a good time.

There will be between 20 and 30 Airstreams from the Southern Illinois Unit at the rally plus those of us that sign up from the Airforums.

Check out the photos from the last joint Airforums/WBCCI rally here:

Yo Steve.....and my many FRIENDS!

Have fun at you final salute to spring, summer and fall. Eat chili, but don't be chilled; have a great campfire!

Best to all,

Pee Wee

Well looks like we are not going to make it. With Amy's military obligation to march in the Veteran's Day parade, we simply wouldn't get there till the evening on Saturday at the earliest.

Thanks PeeWee. Our normal October rainfall is just shy of 3 inches. As of yesterday we're just shy of 13! You can almost count the sunny days this month on one hand. BUT...

Look at this forecast! It's looking like we're going to have a great fall campout. Wish you could be here.

Awesome. Can't wait to see a 2010.

I should be arriving late afternoon. I'm guessing some of the WBCCI folks will already be there so we'll know where to park. The only guidance in the newsletter was to park near the #1 shelter.

Shove a pillow in the hole and come on out. You won't need air conditioning anyway. We need you to warm the group with White Russians. All I have is Southern Comfort.
