If you're heading down I-44 Friday morning maybe we can arrange to meet up?

My plan is to leave Wentzville around 10 and that would put me at Lebanon around 11:15 give or take. Where does 54 hit Columbia? My mom lives out south on 63. I can be in her driveway in a hour and thirty. Is that a good guess on your trip to Ledanon?

You better bring lots of mix! What site are you in? The line might start @ 7 AM do we our own glasses? It sounds like the only group meal will be Saturday and it's a BBQ contest so bring your A game, or just lots of alcohol and you will be a shoe in! We can't wait to see everyone.

Post Friday night informal. Saturday barbeque.

Brad, it would be great if you and Zell bring appetizers! We'll have some chips and dip, etc. available. Ray and I may put some hamburgers on the grill and bring them over. Maybe hotdogs, too. Everyone can basically do whatever they want about dinner Friday night, but we're hoping to hang out together most of the afternoon and evening. Friday night isn't really a potluck, because some of us don't want to cook two nights. We don't mind if our mates do, though.

The Friday Meet and Greet is the part of our rally that will be very KISS style - "Keep It Simple, Stupid", no offense, I just heard someone using that term in referring to another rally). Friday night the emphasis is on meeting old friends and making new "old" friends. Everyone is welcome to bring supper, or eat and then come down, or come down and then go eat, or eat whatever is around (there will be hickory nuts on the ground by now - just kidding). The grills will be available if anyone wants to cook hamburgers, or bring other food for themselves and grill it while visiting.

There will be coffee and tea available at the rec room throughout the rally. If you go in and there isn't any, make more. That's our style.

The group meal is Saturday night, where participants will try to win the "best barbeque" contest. Here's your chance, grill lords. However, the food can be cooked any way - grill, slow cook, roasted, smoked, etc. We will vote on the "best barbeque" by secret ballot. Everyone can add whatever they would normally want with the barbeque, be it chips, beans, 'taters, etc. Then we'll all share it. Hmmm, sounds just like a dadgummed potluck. There will probably be cake or something decadent courtesy of people like me who like to cook, or courtesy of some baker in Branson if I'm not in the mood! Whatever you do for Saturday night, the food should be ready by 6 p.m.

Yum, someone said chicken and dumplings? It would be good, too, in case someone or a few someones don't wanna' be eatin' no barbequed stuff for supper. Personally, I have Zantac, and enough to share. But, I love me some chicken and dumplings.

For Saturday night, it's supposed to be the men cooking, but Shane, if you really can't find the stove, er, grill...I guess Kathy will have to pinch hit for you! We're going to give you trouble about it, though. LOL

I gotta' be honest, I hope the chicken n' dumplins' don't win the barbeque contest. That would be sooooo hard to explain and probably cause a controversy like W....oh, no, er, can't say that.... well, cause a fuss like people get into sometimes.

Mr. B is will have some good pulled pork roast which is very much barbeque, but never hits a barbeque grill. I guess I can make some bonanza beans to help feed the masses. But I have to warn you, there's several women (you know who you are!) on this trip who ain't gonna' cook. Ain't happening. End of story. Nada. So bring rations. Pretend you're at deer camp. Or fishing. Or on an overnight float trip. You get my drift. I don't think your wives are going to feed ya' on Saturday night.

As for other meals - it's common for a bunch of early birds to get up and go out to breakfast at some good place Don and Jeri found. I forget where they went, cause I was one of the ones who did not get up. Most campers are early birds. Not me, so much. They didn't bring me a danged piece of bacon, even. In fact, there is even some minor disapproval shown toward my habit of sleeping a good chunk of the morning away. But, I don't fuss at people who go to bed early....so,

If some of you want to get together to cook breakfast, the rec room will be available, with kitchen. Just clean up your mess and turn out the lights. There will be coffee available. Bring your own bacon and eggs. However, if the majority want to have breakfast together on Saturday, or Sunday...that can happen. This rally is evolving as it grows and there are no hard and set rules. Yet. Although the wives aren't gonna' cook.....LOL, did I mention that already?

I can smell Ozark campfires already. Bring wood if you want. The campground sells little bundles...but you know how that is. I think we dragged up and burned a few fallen TREES last spring. The storms leave quite a lot of deadwood around. Every campsite has a fire pit big enough for a good sized campfire. Bring marshmallows. And, was it bloody marys? I'm just not sure how it's gonna' taste, though...

It's still not too late to join us! We have 22 spaces reserved for this rally, although one person has two spaces held. We aren't sure if they are using both or were just holding it for a second traylah.

Reminder

Please make sure you go to the rally calendar and rsvp. That's the only way we have of keeping up with who is coming. We have 22 reserved spots according to the campground, but don't have that many rsvps on the calendar. Trying to keep a close headcount so we can do a good job of hosting. We know Don and Jeri are coming, so we've accounted for them. Don don't do no dang blame computer! Hmmm, come to think about it, I'm not picturing him cooking, either. We can talk about him, cause it's a sure thing he is NOT on the computer. LOL And cause we love him.

I googled the route (Wentzville to Lebanon coming through Union to St. Clair and down I-44) and it says 149 miles or 2hrs 52 mins. Pulling at 60 MPH it comes out to 2 hrs 48mins.

Hwy. 63 goes south from Columbia to Jefferson City and connects with Hwy. 54. From Columbia to Lebanon the drive is 113 miles for a total of 2 hrs and 7 mins. I don't pull very fast and tend to take my time, so around 2 hrs is right.

We would want to be in Lebanon around 11am so that would put you leaving Wentzville at 8am. If it won't work out no worries we'll see each other down the road.

Trailer Crawl?

Any thoughts about a Trailer Crawl or Open House?

At other rallies we've attended, typically on Saturday afternoon, everyone hosts a trailer crawl. You can have cocktails or not, but it gives everyone a chance to see differnt kinds of rigs. What seemed to work best at the 1st Iowa TAC rally was moving from trailer to trailer in one group

There is an open house on Saturday and I believe it will be one group touring together. Carol will post the schedule in a couple days but I always thought it would be fun to have a progressive cocktail party sometime but maybe more of an evening event. Spring might be a fun time to do it.

Not a thing wrong

Drew, there's not a thing wrong with dutch oven cooking. And I know whatever you and Carol do, it will be scrumpdelicious.

Also, we are having a "group" open house, which means we will all visit each trailer that is open for "open house" together. If anyone wants to serve, soda, or whatever, during their open house, that's fine. It will be before dinner on Saturday night. We start it early in the afternoon because SOME of us must have food ready for Saturday dinner. We can go as fast or slow as the group prefers. There is a prize for best presentation - so the best wine, etc., could win! I will post the schedule as soon as I hear from Terry.

Brad, I'm going to send you a copy of the schedule, too, so you can let me know if you think we've forgotten anything.

I'm sure it looks great! I'm so excited about your planning! Sounds fun! Were sad we will miss the open house since were leaving Saturday afternoon. Stupid work!

I know. I so hate that y'all have to leave early. It's a bummer. The afterparty won't be the same for sure. But we'll try to go on without you, sniff, sniff, cause we know y'all would want it that way. Since you're leaving Saturday, we may have to just go ahead and have a lot of fun on Friday, too!

Jo Ann and I (and possibly our daughter) will be visiting you only Saturday for the tour and some visiting afterward. We need to be in Springfield for dinner that night, or we'd like to stick around and enjoy some of the barbeque.

We're particularly interested in talking to anyone who is full-timing and/or is in a 30+ foot Airstream. Yes, we're getting excited.
