    So here we are on Goundhog Day, Feb 2. Did you know that the movie was filmed in Woodstock, IL? 25 years ago! Rally is less than 4 months away!! Yay! Are we doing a potluck sign up?

    We just got back from a great evening at the Pizza Palace in Gilman with our friends. Steve & Jody, Mike-milo & his DW Vanessa, Lori came to and my DW Susan. A small group but lots of fun. We chatted about Doug's fires and Lories crafts as well as we told Mike-Milo he better come even if he goes to the dark side. He's a really nice guy. We talked some about food and when we were getting there. We mentioned doing a craft on Friday. Something we could all use to tell who is with our group. I hope it works out. Sorry no one else was able to be there, Maybe next time.
    Mike -milo said there is another opportunity to see all kinds of campers at the Spring Hall of Fame RV Show this spring. I'm going to see if we can get some friends together with this. This show is in Elkhart Indiana from April 27th to 30th. There should be camping around there somewhere and there is the RV Hall of Fame to see as well. He says there are thousands of campers. So we will see what he means. It sounds very interesting, [HYC] [PUC] [HY] [ALPU] [NEON] Your friend Illplainsman.

    Any spot you can find will work. There is usually a main rally site and a common place to get together for the pot luck on Saturday and any activities, so you would just have to come on over to the canvasback loop. Wouldn't that be something if we filled the park with pups lol.

    Glad you can join. Yes, there will be plenty of veterans there to help you out. And if you get there after dark ILplainsman will probably be over to help to back in with his big light. If he isn't tending to the rally fire lol.

    Hi Love2travel,

    You will be very good hands if you need anything at all during your first outing with the PU. We just joined the world of PU's after so many years laying on the ground. We use totes for carry most of our things, they fit nicely on the floor of the PU and under the PU outside. Just consider what your menus will require for cooking and plan around that because you now have many options. My first Rally was just a couple of years ago and I asked so many questions from very wise people. Be sure to check the pressure in your tires before you start out. Hope to meet up with you when you arrive.

    Safe travels,

    Steve & Jody

    Love2travl, great to have you on board with us. Yes we have a lot of good people in our group. If you have ANY questions [?:~{] from how to fix popcorn [CK] to where to get parts for a 40 year old [}:)] popup we will try to answer your questions. If you need anything I'll be in site #131. Maybe I can help you find the answers you are looking for. I am not the smartest [:D] one but I am kind of a a smart a....ick, whoops almost slipped. No seriously If I can help or any of our friends can help just ask. Please stay right here or on our FB page "Illinois pop-ups". Don't be afraid to ask and keep up on our conversations. You never know when something new will be added to our rally. Don't make me do all the talking to [LOL] . You will find we have a few crafts and games as well as a big potluck. So don't forget your lawn chairs and an appetite. We will have a community fire and it's all good clean fun. So again WELCOME to the group. [2C] .

    Although we have a reservation at Shabonna for Wednesday, May 17, we will not be coming in that night. However we will take off on Thursday morning early and come down. We're only a couple of hours away, if that much. We needed to save that vacation day for some family needs.
