Midwest Egg Rally

Cindy, we definitely should start a Midwest Egg Rally. I already suggested this to the two other guys from Wisconsin who got their Escape trailers delivered this month. Such a rally would give a perfect excuse to do a camp cook out. I could be responsible for the German Smores, and you all could whip up the main course or some sides! I would love that! We could start with a simple NOG style rally in 2011! We certainly have many beautiful State Parks nearby...

Gerda.

We have looked into this. We thought Galena with all it has to do but the campground we checked was dirty with rude employees. We checked Volo,I'LL but did not like the campground. We like places with things to do and a clean campground. We liked Stoughton, WI but did not get around to checking out the campground. Greg and Bill found a really nice campground, the Rustic Barn in Keeler. That is near Dubuque and Galena. We talked to the lady who owns it but have not carried through yet. Thoughts?

We didn't consider Lanesboro, because there was one there already. Since they moved to Lacrosse this year (and create a problem for us for scheduling since school has started), that is a good idea. I don't know if the change is permanent though.

CindyL, I finally get the chance to chime in with my thoughts. I think we should opt for one of the nice state parks. The Backbone state park in Iowa is gorgeous. Maybe we could also go to one of those parks located at Lake Michigan in either Wisconsin or Michigan. I will test two of them located in Wisconsin this summer, during weekends.

Hi - keep posting when you find a location; I'd love to come down.

I am not sure when this can happen, probably not until 2012. However, I think I will look into a location in NE Iowa near the town where we lived for many years, Elkader, which is not far from Backbone. Backbone is where where I used to take the kids swimming when they were little, but the camping areas in Backbone do not have water. I prefer water and electric.

Most people think of Iowa as flat. NE Iowa is filled with bluffs, trees that turn even more beautiful in fall, trout streams, canoeing rivers, etc. There is a lot to do too, antiquing, biking, canoeing, exploring parks like Pikes Peak, Effigy Mounds, gambling in the riverboat, watching theatrical shows in a beautiful restored opera house in Elkader, etc.

Elkader sounds like a nice idea! I am totally open for that as well. The Deer Run Resort in Elkader looks like a nice campground, and I am sure there is more. I agree on Iowa, it has beautiful areas and is by no any means just flat! Iowa is also a very well kept state, as in clean and neat. I just always love it visiting my friend in Lamont, and going camping.

Aha, a fellow UNI grad. Both the hubby and I are grads too. However, I also graduated from Iowa. Go Hawks!

Gerda, the Deer Run Resort looks nice, except it looks as if the spaces are tight with few trees. I know the area - my husband was the Elkader baseball coach for many years, and the ball field is right there. I wish the city park did reservations. They have mature trees and I don't think are not as squeezed in. That being said, I don't want to make a decision without looking at Deer Run first. It has been a while since I was there. The floods in the 90s wiped that area out. You could catch fish at Deer Run and on the baseball field.

I was looking at Spook Cave Campground. It is off the beaten path (up a gravel road) but accessible to McGregor with its antique stores (McGregor has a vintage clothing store that has provided movie costumes. Kevin needs to complete his Edwardian costume.), Marquette's gambling boat (for those who go for that) and Effigy Mounds, Elkader's antique stores, golf course, dining places, and Opera House (Yes, I know Elkader better, because we lived there many years.), and even Backbone.

I guess we need a trip home to look at campgrounds. I don't know about dates. The issue is that I have tenure papers to pull together next summer.

Would this be the closest group for anyone interested in Michigan?

Smile Governor Dodge State Park

In my tent camping days in Wisconsin, I seem to remember

Governor Dodge State Park as being nice.

http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/parks/spe...ovdcampmap.pdf

Also Wyalusing.

http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/parks/spe...singcamp05.pdf

Just a thought.

The Lanesboro event was moved to Lacrosse to spark more interest, Next fall it will be the Scamp owners turn to Host the event. ( note we use to have two fall events in the area and decided the turn out would be better if we alternated events )

So if you would like to put the fall event on in 2012, I would not be upset. Some new blood never hurts.

No, Jim, if I do it, the date will be different. The September date actually squeezes me, because school has started. I would probably put one that I would be involved with in May or June. I see no reason why there can't be more.
