#22 goes to Charly , who may have to put a hitch on the front of his 370 after BobM got a hold of it



From now I will start a stand-by list that first will go to cancellations and second to reservations in the B,C and D


Lets make this a big event!! The automobile Museum is 1.5 miles from our spot

Correction its Monday Oct 11th-Sunday Oct 17th, pending Ranger Lee feedback.

Sorry for the mix-up, I have been working this on several time frames.

Don't call unless you want to reserve an additional spot in the campground areas for someone else! You are in the 22 sites area, first come first serve.

We are not assigning specific sites # to anyone, even though they are Numbered 1-22. The head count number does not represent your site number.

It will be completely up to us how we arrange the layout, with consideration to Electric boxes and water spigots. Fun stuff
I should hear from the park today or tomorrow about the deposit requirements and other specifics. Do not do anything until I get that info.

Lots of balls up in the air at the moment, and options range from shipping Bella back to US and Denise and I (plus dog) doing an extended 'tour', to just me in Peanut and a camping stove!

Some of which is impacted by Covid (the region where I live is in full locked down plus I have some mods planned for Bella which can't start until things get back to normal), some work related (my contract with the University runs to April), some related to other Airstream rallies (there is a UK caravan in August so Bella could only ship after that).

But a small teaser of what is currently being investigated for Bella.....

....not to mention, as an automatic, it comes attached to an Allison 3000 series transmission with the optional retarder

They have been in use since 1996 and are recognized as "million mile motors"

I think that is just the latest 4pot from Detroit, nothing to do with Mercedes

Just a short update:

Week of Oct 11th -Oct17th is confirmed
Only first night non-refundable deposit for 22 sites is required to reserve the entire Area. (amount to be announced soon)

I will be receiving a list of all the other available sites in a few days.
Here is a map of the 22 sites and again a map of the camping areas.
As you can see 13-22 all real spread out over a larger area and 1-12 closer together.
