Tom,
I see the booking window opens up in 2 days, does this rally book up pretty quick? We have never been to that campground, and it looks like a possibility. We need to get on the ball and do some spring, summer, and fall camping planning.

Stan,
The booking window is actually open now. As of a few minutes ago there are 11 sites available to reserve in A-Loop. I would recommend A-14, A-16 or A-19 as the other open sites are in full sun most of the day.

Check out our Facebook page for some pictures of the campground and past gatherings:

We are having the Rally Bags again this year--Let's share something we have discovered in our camping experiences. There will be a bag for each Rig so you can, if you wish, add something to each bag. The only rule is: CHEAP! (Tom's hint: Dollar Store) Itcan be something you make, something you buy, a useful website, a recipe you really love, a hint for your Egg, an appropriate cartoon, anything you think others would appreciate. The possibilities are endless. We will pass the bags out on Saturday evening and discover our "treasures". Every rig will have a bag, but remember participate as much or as little as you like. No one is under an obligation to add something.

For some reason the website does not find the vacant sites if you fill out all the information. Just put in the dates and select A-Loop or even leave it "any loop" and it will bring up the available sites. Not sure what the quirk in the system is, but it's government, what can I say.

I just checked and there are still 7 sites available in A-Loop. In addition there are 10 first come sites, many of which are vacant during the rally.

Looking forward to seeing you at our gathering.

Tom

Holly, please e-mail me at tommcrae85@yahoo.com so I can add you to my mailing list. I do send out occasional updates. There is major highway construction at the I-70 and US 77 interchange. This will not be completed by the rally, so I will be sending info on how to avoid the construction closer to the rally date.

Kansas Eggstravaganza IX May update

As of 1:00 pm 4/28/16 only one site is available to reserve. There are 10 sites that are available on a first come basis. I do not have names for 5 sites that are reserved. They may or may not be with our group.

No major changes are planned in the agenda this year. We have gone to lunch at El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant for the last 4 years. Is it time to change or do you want to stay there this year? Let me know what you think.

The pizza party worked out so well last year that we are going to have it again this year. A donation will be collected to cover the cost of the pizza.

We will have the Rally Bags again this year: Let’s share something we have discovered in our camping experiences. There will be a bag for each Rig so you can, if you wish, add something to each bag. The only rule is: CHEAP! (Tom’s hint: Dollar Store) It can be something you make, something you buy, a useful website, a recipe you really love, a hint for your Egg, an appropriate cartoon, anything you think others would appreciate. The possibilities are endless. We will pass the bags out on Saturday evening and discover our “treasures”. It should not be a burden so remember to keep it simple and fun.

If you are coming to the rally be sure that you are on my e-mailing list so I can alert you to ways to avoid the major construction areas.

Hopefully some of the projects on US-77 between I-70 and Farnum Creek Campground will be completed by September. However, the reconfiguration of the I-70/US-77 interchange will not be. US-77 is being reconfigured into a diverging diamond Interchange under I-70. If you don’t know what that is you need to Google it because I don’t even want to try and explain it.

Tom

Kansas Eggstravaganza IX July update.

Kansas Eggstravaganza IX July update.

I have 34 trailers signed up so far. There are no sites that can be reserved in A-Loop. That said, remember there are 10 First come sites (in the 5 years we have been at Farnum Creek there have always been open sites). B-Loop is also an option, but it does not have hook-ups.

If you are in (or know who is in) sites A-6 or A-20 please let me know.

Highway construction on US-77 through Junction City is still in progress at 4 places. I use the word progress loosely because little of it seems to be made. I do have hopes that 3 of the projects will be completed by the time of the rally.

The new Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market and new Ace Hardware Store Just off US-77 are open. Currently access is made difficult due to the closed East bound street at the intersection. That is one of the projects that I hope is finished before the rally.

There is no registration fee for the rally.

We are having the Pizza Party on Friday night (bring your own soft drinks, beer or wine). A donation will be collected to cover the cost of the pizza
