    I might be wrong but wasn't it decided that the spring and fall rallies were set locations now? Maybe I miss understood. We are usually down with anywhere :)

    Agree with Exploreco, Wade had talked of making Middlefork permanent. Central and easy to get to, plus just a nice CG.

    I have no clue. The spring rally last year wasn't at middle fork. I just know I was nominated to be the wagon master next year. :)

    Double check with wade. But I think efesher was correct that middle fork was decided upon because of its central location for the spring and I think Moraineview for the fall for the same reason. Welcome Wagon master! We are usually open for whatever though.

    Of course I would go to any of the campgrounds, the only one I haven't been to is Panther Creek? Looks interesting, with lots to do. Selfishly I would love to say Mascoutin aka Clinton Lake, also lots to do and I know first hand it is a great park. I know someone in this group has been to Panther Creek, what is it like and can you see water from the campsites?

    I voted for Mascoutin aka Clinton Lake. Closest to my home and would be able to take popup and probably work in extra days.

    Mascoutin would be a great choice and it is a really nice campground. Another vote for there.

    OK just saw this thread...I vote for somewhere north! LOL. I can't plan a year in advance so whatever you decide is fine. Have you ever planned anything around Starved Rock area?

    We drove through Panther Creek when we were in that neck of the woods. Campground is very open but is still pretty new. A couple more years of tree growth and it will be awesome. Showers and BR's were nice. Place was packed. Plenty of H2O.

    Wade suggested a campground near Kankakee, but that's quite a drive for me.
    If it's too far, hosting it will be difficult for me.

    What's good for you Dale? Perhaps you should/could choose a few and take a vote.
