Time to start organizing a rally open to all fiberglass campers. I have picked Lincoln Trail State Park in Marshall, IL for the weekend of May 18 & 19, leaving Sunday the 20th. We have met the last 2 years at Spring Mill State Park here in Indiana in May and some of us felt it was time to change locations.

Illinois does NOT have an on-line reservation system and Lincoln Trail does NOT take advanced reservations but I have talked to the folks at Lincoln Trail and they assured me that we should not have any problems getting in. The only time it is a problem, is on Holiday weekends.

Once I know how many are planning to attend (sometime around the first week of May), I will call Lincoln Trail and let them know and they will arrange it so that we are together.
Costs are $15 a night and NO park entrance fee!

My wife and I just moved up from a tent to a Sportman 2300 camper. Parents did a lot of camping when I was young in a camper but I didn't pay much attention to most of the things they did. Now is the learning curve.

My wife and I are going camping close by on Mothers day weekend and invited the parent for the day (they cannot camp anymore due to knee surgeries). First time in the camper so my parents will probably guide us and laugh at us.

When it comes to going camping. My wife and I are wanting to do a lot more camping (since we now have air conditioning to get a good night sleep ) and would enjoy getting together as a group in the future. Even though we cannot do it on the 18th, we'll keep our eyes open for other dates you all are thinking of getting together.

Getting real close now. After a miserable winter I'm more than ready to go.

I'm making a week of it as usual and shove off Sunday, May 13th, driving back the Monday after the get together. Prolly bring the ATV because there's a public access ATV trail about 10 miles west.

Washed and waxed (lazy man's job...just the parts I could reach from the ground) the Casita today and ran some water through the pipes to flush out any red pop.

Need a run to West Marine tomorrow at lunch to pick some white button snap caps (I broke some using a buffer applying the wax) to cover the outside rivets (marine caps have a UV stabilizer added to the plastic). The hardware store ones lasted barely a year.

Adjusted the brakes yesterday. Decided to pass on the bearing lube as things look good behind the rubber plug. Aired up the tires.

Mail stop with the carrier tomorrow.

Waypoints and geocaches loaded into the GPS.

Nothing left but verify that the rain gear is in the trailer (I've been to a couple of these before...it always rains at least once), load up the food and clothes and Katy Bar the Door!

See you all soon!
