Good luck! You should have a great time. We hope your wife loves it.
If you have fun doing that, maybe you will consider joining in on one of our informal rallies.
We have one on the calendar for Oct. 4-7 at Penn Wood Airstream Park, Limestone, PA The Clarion Fall Colors Festival is going on. There are 4-5 of us going over together.
Airbiscuit is hosting another on Oct. 26-29 at Findley State Park for the Anniversary/Chili cook-off rally. So far we have 15 or 16 campers coming in for all of the fun.

So far in Sept. 6-9 we are thinking of going to Findley SP if we can. We had some Canadians call and ask if we had courtesy parking for that week and they said they would get back to us closer to the time, but so far no contact. So we are playing that by ear.

Camp on! Summer is going by fast!!

We are planning to go to Findley SP sometime in September during the week to see how it is during the week. We drove through the other day to check out the sites and have a list of ones we are interested in, one is close to the three you mentioned -- 245. Actually, there were more that seemed nice, but I just didn't write them all down.

Curious here, are there certain sites you almost always reserve? Are some areas better than others (not considering electric vs non-elec.).

We were looking for ones that had plenty of tree clearance (so Lola won't be scraped by limbs) and looked to be dry (some looked low). Another thing we're interested in is a site that has trees, but also has a clearance for our satellite dish to work properly. I know, I know, we're camping, but we still like to stay in touch with news, etc.

There's a chance we might be able to do 9/5-7 or 9/6-8, do they allow you to stay on Friday and not Saturday? We are scheduled to go to the Highland Haven "sort of Rally" in Virginia the next week, and then the Pennwood in PA in October, so I don't know for certain how much time my DH can get off so close together.

Hi Deb. We tend to stay around 201/203ish and 175-178 areas when we all go. Nice big sites and major tree clearance.

We will be there fri 7th and sat the 8th. Loudruff is showing up the 6th. Hope to see you there so we can meet before the Pennwood trip!

Woo hoo!

Hi Deb,
We would love to get to meet you. Hope you get to come up and join us at Findley SP on Sept. 6-9. Larry and I plan on going over on Thurs. We are retired and so we can be there earlier. Most of our other Airstream neighbors around here must work and so they will catch up to us on Fri., Sat. and Sun.
We try to pick sites that are not low, very long (so we can get the tow vehicle off of the road) and with no dead branches overhead...if we can. We also try to pick a site....at least one if a bunch of us are meeting...that has a decent fire ring area. We love to visit around the campfire and invite everyone to join us, so we need a bigger area sometimes. Since our house is about 10-15 min. from this State Park, we bring firewood.
Hope to see you there!

We won't be able to make Findley either, this time -- DH can't get off, too many already off this week.

Hope everyone has a great time this weekend, and we'll see you in a few weeks -- we're still going to Penn Wood!!

Deb

I know of at least 2 Airstreams that will be at Mohican State Park the weekend of Oct 24 - 28. This is an open get together with 5 units so far.

Park schedules are subject to budget realities so it may be best to contact the park directly. The DNR parks page will provide good information on the system and the Findley homey page will give more detail.

Um, i dont understand why you quoted me. But we have local reservations guaranteed with Findley because it is after the web registration is closed for the season. Those who wish to attend our rally are asked to message me to be assigned a site and then they will pay when they arrive at the park. It is all detailed on the calendar as well as the rally thread.

I must of have linked to the wrong posting. The response was to a question concerning Findley State Park.
