Is everybody about ready? We can't wait. Bob has a tractor show this weekend. We took the airstream down on Sunday. Will be camping out there Thurs thru Sunday.
His first tractor show. Yep he bought a 1940 Model L John Deere. It's small and he loves it. He's just taking it he's not showing it this year. He's going to be delivering the water for all the steam tractors. His buddy is taking like 6 tractors. He's excited. It's at the Dover Fairgrounds. The show starts Friday.:D

Family Scheduling Conflict
MaryLou and I are very sorry:mad: that we will not be able to attend because of a family gathering on the 24th in Michigan.We will already be there for the Detroit-Metro Rally so we have oppted to stay in Michigan for an extra week and attend the celebration of the many family birthdays for the month of August,including my mother's:sorcerer: 96th birthday. I'm sure you realize the importance of us being there. We did so want to attend. Maybe next year.
Hope you all have a great time.

Sounds like Bob is going to have fun. Is he going to be going to tractor shows and steam engine shows too? LaGrange Engine Show will be held at the Lorain Co. Fairgrounds in Wellington, the third weekend of Sept. Larry and I will be there serving with the band boosters. It is always a great show and they have a huge flea mkt. etc.
This weekend we will be going off to Punderson again for the Dock Dog Event with the greyhound group and everyone. Zora and Vega will be jumping. Larry and I have reserved a campsight at Punderson so that we don't have far to travel to get to the Metro Parks at Moreland Hills. Jayne and Bob, are you going to take your two girlie greyhounds to the event?
We are looking forward to getting to West Branch! Hope to see you all there!

Hi Lou
I think that is the weekend we are going to East Harbor, not sure though.
All Bob has bought is the tractor, he hasn't bought a trailer to haul it yet. I guess he could drive it up:lol:and we would see him about a week later:lol:
We have this weekend and next weekend and then East Harbor in September and Evergreen in October. We'll see if we can work anything else in. I'm hoping so.
We'll see you next weekend.

Hi Roger
Sorry to hear that you will be unable to attend. Understandable. I attended one of those parties last Saturday. All the August birthdays. At least it gets them all out of the way and it gives you an extra week of camping.
Be safe in your travels and hopefully we will see you next year at one of our functions.
Have a wonderful time in Michigan.:flowers:
Bob and Jayne

Get rolling!
Larry and I are getting psyched up for the West Branch rally. We thought we would pop this thread to the top tonight. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there. Have to work on the menu and get the trailer repacked. We will be going down to the park on Thursday sometime. Hope you are all ready to roll as well!!

Hello Northeast Ohio!!!
Just checking to see if this thread is still active. Unfortunately, I don't think the dates will work for us. We are heading down to the Miami U. versus Vandy football game in southwest Ohio. We would have loved to popped in with our camper, maybe next time.

Sorry to jump into your conversation...

Actually, I am not sure if this will get attached to your questions on Punderson. Anyhow, we are big fans of the park. Actually, we live about one mile away, so we can't justify camping there. But what I have seen of the campground, it is pretty impressive. Also, the lodge has a great Sunday morning buffet, indoor & outdoor pool. I really think you will enjoy it and also, Chagrin Falls is about five or so miles away. Another great place to grab a bite, Rambling Inn (may not look too great from the outside, but the food is very tasty). Take a left out of Punderson and it is located on the corner of route 87 and Munn Road. Tell Bill and Nicole that I sent you.

PS. You may want to consider trading in one of those newer Airstreams for one of the vintage kind. We have two, 1965 and 1963. Yes, we have minor leaks from time to time, have a rivet gun handy, etc. But we are look at 40+ years and many, many miles. Just joking - enjoy the park.

too bad
We spent last weekend at Punderson. Our second trip to the area. We are so busy during the Dock Dog events that we don't have much time to find the restaurants. We will have to keep that one in mind for one of our next trips.
Larry and I have a 1978 Argosy Minuet 6.7 metre. We would love to meet you sometime. Too bad that you won't have a chance to stop and visit with us all at West Branch. We are going down on Thurs. afternoon to get the rally started! Stop in if you get a chance. We have a few other get togethers planned before the end of the camping season. Maybe you will be able to join us at another one. Will try and keep you posted.
Lou and Larry....LaGrange, OH

Hi everybody. Are we all ready for the rally. Menu is going to be beef or pork and chicken. Terry and Bob are both bringing the home grills. So not to worry. I think I will also make a few shishkebab. Planning on getting some fresh corn. Not to worry, I don't think anyone is going to go hungry.
Weinies on the grill for Friday. Thursday is kind of a punt. On your own or get together. Maybe burgers. We'll see. I just think it's easier to not make any big plans the first night and let folks settle in and then figure it out. Breakfast is always a winner. Wishing everyone a safe trip there and looking forward to seeing everyone.:cool:

bob otto 08-20-2008 06:41 PM

OK-It's official. On the grill for Saturday. Western ribs, chicken breast and a few whole chicken legs and a few shishkebabs. Stopped today and bought some fresh corn, bringing a big kettle to cook on the campfire. Bring anything else you would like to have. As we all know, none of us are picky eaters.
Friday-Weinie roast. I have 2 pkgs of hot dogs and 2 pkgs of mild Italian sausage. I also got 4 pkgs of buns. Making brownies tommorrow and bring those out whenever anyone wants them.
We are sooooo looking forward to this. Hope you all are tooooooo.:D

bob otto 08-20-2008 07:18 PM

Thought maybe I had better clarify the grill menu. We bought a dozen western ribs, 4 whole chicken legs and 1/2 dozen chicken breasts. These are for everyone. Plus I am going to make a 1/2 dozen or so shishkebab. If there is any other meat you have a preference for, you'll have to bring it along and Bob or Terry will be more than happy to grill it up. Bring any covered dish you like.:flowers:

Menu update
Hi again. Just wanted to clarify the grill menu for Saturday. We bought a dozen western ribs, 4 whole chicken legs and 1/2 dozen chicken breasts. I also plan on making 1/2 dozen or so shishkebab. This is for everyone to share at the potluck. If there is any other meat that you have a preference for, bring it along and Bob or Terry will be more than happy to throw it on the grill. Otherwise bring any covered dish you like. Desserts qualify also. Everybody likes dessert.:flowers:

loudruff 08-20-2008 08:50 PM

I am bringing a big tub of homemade macaroni salad, some cauliflower and broccoli to steam, some hot dogs, buns and brats. I also have some of those huge soft pretzels and cheese sauce to nuke. That ought to keep us busy!
See you all on Thursday! Safe travels!
