2021 Airforums Moraine View Rally

Back again for its 19th year is the Moraine View Rally held at Moraine View State Park in LeRoy Illinois. This locale is centrally located and a reasonable weekend drive from many of the major midwest cities. The rally is scheduled for June 11-13, 2021 (Friday-Sunday).

Moraine View is an electric hookup only campground, but for a weekend, most of us can comfortably use our holding tanks for water and waste. Water and dump stations are in the campground along with a nearby bath house and playground area for kids. We have good site space that accommodates a large gathering of people, and best of all participation from lots of you out there who come to the rally, try out your recipes at our pot luck, and sit out in the dark watching our traditional Saturday night movie.

This year we will again be camped in the area next to the lake. All reservable sites must be procured through the ReserveAmerica.com reservation system. There is a $5 processing fee that is not refundable but if you cancel you can get a refund. I know it may be early for you to make commitments but we need to get our reservations is ASAP to assure we will fill the loop up with forum attendees.

A few of us have been there every year, and some almost every year. Its been a fun event and something that has been a given here at AirForums. I believe this rally is the oldest same site Forums rally that is in existence.

So what's the plans for 2021? At this point I'll be watching the issues with COVID and what the guidelines are. For those of you who remember we pretty much cancelled the organized activities and this year those activities will again be questionable. While I don't want this thread used to debate the appropriateness of the guidelines, as a person who has 2 high risk issues I have to be aware that we will have to be initially cautious until we see how vaccination goes and what the medical authorities advise.

Note that many of us arrive on Thursday even though we have no specific events scheduled. Note that the available water at the park carries some sediment so be sure to bring a water filter if you plan to use the spigots that are scattered around the loops.

Those who can't make reservations, be aware that there are non reservable sites that very close to our loop. Those sites are usually filled by Friday evening, so if you are planning to arrive without reservations, Thursday or Friday morning will give you best access to those sites.

Moraine View State park is located near Bloomington Illinois. It is associated with LeRoy Illinois where you will find gas, fast food, supermarkets and other supplies.

Here is the link to the campground information and state park reservation site. https://camp.exploremoreil.com

Here is a link to the campground map.
https://camp.exploremoreil.com/location/249
The preferred sites are P13-P23, F1-F9. All sites are back in. F1-F9 form a spoke. This is the area where we will eat and have the movies. Some of the P sites back to the lake, some back to the woods. Even if these sites fill, know that there are many reservable sites next to the sites that I listed. We've had as many as 43 units in past years, so there is always room.

In the meantime start thinking about this and get your reservations in. If this is your first rally or you are an Airstream wannabe, please come. While many of us have been coming to this rally for years, we always have many first time attendees. For you new attendees or those thinking of procuring an Airstream in the future, the trailer tours and visits with current owners are invaluable. If you reserve a site, please let me know. I'll keep a list posted so you know who is coming and where they will be.

Have a great winter and spring! June will be here faster than you think!

Jack

maccamper has P15

maccamper has P15 reserved.

We'll be there if we are comfortable coming out of our "bubble of 2" by that time.

Thanks everyone for thinking of me. I love this group of campers!
Turns out I have inflamed blood vessels in my lungs caused by an auto immune disease that will need to be brought under control. Am doing a lot better and they are hoping to send me home tomorrow where nurse Roger can take over. I will be good and follow all doctors orders so I can be ready to camp by June!

Alice is home now and continuing cancer treatment. Prayers still very much needed. We have a long road ahead of us. Still hope to be able to camp by June.

First timer

I have just booked the F-2 site. This is our first rally, having just completed a 5 1/2 year renovation of our 1963, 24' Tradewind. Looking forward to meeting new friends and fellow streamers.

Fyi the state of Illinois has transferred their park registrations to a new site. For those of you already registered, your registration has been transferred to the new site. You should be getting an email shortly that will ask you to choose a new password for the new site. Once you do that you can verify your Moraine View Reservation.

For those not yet registered here is the link to the new reservation site. I'll make changes to the first post in this thread to reflect the new site. https://camp.exploremoreil.com

Hopefully you all are getting closer to having COVID inoculations available to you. I got my first shot today with the second coming in 3 weeks. Maybe we all will be closer to bringing our lives and this rally back to normalcy.

Jack
