Well, we have that many confirmed already.
Maybe we need to firm up if we have the remaining four sites?
This is the first time I did not do the campground follow-up so I am just guessing at this stuff now.

You may have seen it in there. It is a huge cell that has four PLC's on it. There are two mount and inflate stations in it. It is really neat to watch it mount the 22 inch tire/wheel combo!
Hey Lou,

They are 20" tire and wheels, they are the largest diameter that we install on the pickups that are built at FWA (Fort Wayne Assembly).

Preparation is proceeding full-tilt for our late fall launch of the 900 pickup.

Okay we are in too for anything you need - i can take pictures - and give them to someone else to post on the web - or if you mean post them here no problem.

If you put a Globe and Minuet together we would make up the room A&M will need with their 5th symphony

Okay Lou - how many steaks ya wanna trade for how many cases of cold ice - see our old fridge works real good when we cross the border.

But this time we will not be carrying our old axle and bringing the little baby that has the nice and cold AC - by the way is their 30 amp at these sites - if not that is okay we can rough it with a couple of fans. This time last year when we were traveling to Indiana we just about died with the Humidity and Heat. Good thing we arrived at 1:00 am.

Still planning the week with Peters work -We may have to leave Thursday - so that Peter can capitlize on the full week with the Holiday Monday. If we take the front end of that week then we have to rush home on the Monday which will be murder coming across the top of Toronto. Will chat by phone.

Who is Al and Jean???? where you at????

Lou I left out the bit about the fact your pouches were Mini snahuzers for a reason - my two outweighed and out toothed them by a mile and yet they occupied the underside of the picnic table

Wow on the Pot luck - what is something that has not been thought of yet that we might bring ?

Hey that little Tracker could probably do a fine job of pulling the Globe Trotter - did you not know that us cannucks are famous for pulling trailers with our 6C's - with the gass prices there just might be a few nuts out there thinking of pulling with the 4C's

Getting excited for our only trip this summer with the MoonBeam - and might be our last - she will have a FOR SALE sticker on her...ouch that hurt Have to move forward with the Overlander - decided to keep on our plan with the Hybrid - and we will not need two trailers.

I know all about automation but nothing about what size wheels you guys are putting on them.
I was lucky enough to be transferred back to powertrain a little over a year ago. I used to do a lot of work for CCRW out of the Warren Tech Center. I grew very tired of going to such fun places ass Lordstown, OH., Arlington, TX. and Shreveport, LA.
Now I keep my butt parked at GMPT-Warren all day long. I know what it is like to actually wake up in my own bed for a complete year now.

I figure we might have to do just that! A&M had to apply for their own postal code when they bought that rig!

From what I understand there is 30 amp service. I pray there is or I may be pulling out a day or two early!

Uh, ok. Chat by phone would be better anyway as I did not understand all that you are trying to say there. Then again, it makes sense when you hear it instead of read it.

Al and Jean Veenhuizen. Like you, they are from Canada and have that "hot chick" on their money!

I actually could not blame your poor puppies. Mine behaved like a pack of ravenous wolves!

Well, I think we are still looking for a couple side dishes. I do have dibs on A&M's sweet potato casserole this time. Last time I was carving my birds for everyone. This time I am eating!

Yeah, Andy at Can-Am tried to convince me that I might be able to tow my Minuet with my Pontiac Vibe! Now that would be a sight!

You better let me know first before you go sticking a FS sign in MoonBeam. Your trailer is 8 inches wider and a foot longer than my little Minuet. When I bought it, there was one less kiddy in the house. I am still trying to figure out HOW those kids got here!

Looks like we will have a lot to talk about at the rally! I sure am glad that there are some other automotive people coming. Makes me feel like we can feel each other's pain!

Is it too late to join the festivities?

Hello!

My family and I are leaving Cincinnati tomorrow for Dearborn for the week -- we're taking the kid to the Henry Ford complex. Since we (I think) won't be far from all of y'all, could we join you? Maybe Thursday? We'd have to leave Saturday morning (long trip home...), but we could party with y'all Friday night.

Is there room at the campground? If so, how do I sign us up?

Pam

p.s. Since we're leaving tomorrow early, it would be great to hear back from someone tonight....

HOLY COW.

And since I can't read a calendar, I thought that was this coming weekend!

Thank you for catching that, and perhaps we'll see you at next year's rally (since we'll obviously be back in Cincinnati by Aug. 4.....)

(sheepish grin)

Every time I call them they tell me 24. Actually it started at 20 and then became, "well, there's 24 there." I see I need to call them again on Monday and make sure they're still talking the same story to me.

Well, it looks like we will have enough to make at least 21, maybe 22.
If there is a problem, I am sure we can straighten it out. If not, I am sure we can find somebody else that would LOVE to have that many campsites booked on that weekend.
If they want to stick to that story then we can always use that as a trump card.

Well, we sure hope to see you there next year.
It looks like this is going to turn out to be an annual thing from here on out.
