I vote we find a KOA campground within a couple hundred miles of Ristow's home. Wherever we pick, it should be kid & wife friendly too. It is much more fun when the family goes.

The Dells sounds good. My wife has been wanting to go there for years.

Foreverton is just a little bit, 22 miles or so,south of the Dells. I was looking at the Koa there and the one in Madison.
They also have a free night on the weekend of May9th. Pay for the 9th get the 10th free. I took advantage of this last year to go to the AMC Meet in MI. I got a cabin for $90 all weekend. You need a KOA Kampers card and you have to ask for the free night if you do it over the phone or online.
Although I spent all my time at the show I found out that the campground put on a huge kids weekend activity thing.

Is early May a decent time as far as temps go that time of year?

Did I mention I have 2 cases left of Yuengling Lager that needs gone?

Might have some Corona by then as well.
We are building them 2 new machines.

We use Morse chain we just aren't big enough to demand custom made stuff. Although we do modify their stock stuff.

Probably won't be a whole lot of difference between mid March and early May up that way. Last time I was in the U.P. was as a kid. We did a family trip to Mackinaw Island. Let me tell ya that bridge is no joke.

Should we tell John or just go make ourselves at home.. Wait hold on John is an excellent cook , let's make sure he is there. Unless he can cook us a meal or two ahead of time and one of us coming through Lexington could grab it, thank him and get a key so we don't have to bust into the place.

Well I'm glad you're in. That will save a burglary charge.
So when?

Hey Folks!
I dunno why I was overlooking this forum....sorry

I had originally planned to attend the Gravelrama Swap Meet this Saturday morning.
If you fellows want to have a Meet and Greet at John's place, then I will skip the Swap Meet to come over to visit with you.

I have a dinner at 6PM Saturday evening in Saint Albans, WVa that I need to attend.
I am calculating 3.5 hours from the Cinci area to St. Albans.
So, I can come as early as you like, but I need to leave by 2:30ish

If you decide to have the M&G at Johns, let me know and provide some directions or an address to key in my GPS.
