You talking about a camping weekend, or just an afternoon to swap lies? Might consider weekend in Elkhart, IN area for prowling the RV surplus places.

I was thinking June 17-19, for the entire weekend. I need a little more time to work on the bus. The IN area is close by so I think that can work also. I'm off the 90/94 highway. Let's make this happen...

To get the ball rolling I have tentatively set aside the dates of July 29-30-31 on my calendar for a parts scavenge mini rally in Elkhart, IN. No set plans for any kind of event, just a meet and tell lies. There are some excellent RV surplus places in the area, I know where most if not all of them are, and can help steer you to the right one based on what you need. One of the best

Bontragers Surplus Inc.

is closed Sat, but open at noon on Sunday, so plan accordingly. You can't see them all in one day. I might even start on Thursday if there is any interest.

I plan on using the Elkhart campground.

I've stayed there and it is nice with reasonable rates.

There is also the RV Hall of fame to visit.

RV/MH Hall of Fame - Museum - Library - Conference Center

If there is any interest, please let me know soon so that I can make my reservations. Mumsywumsy probably won't go, we are going to be at the Flxible rally the week before, and she really doesn't like prowling around looking at "ideas".
Note, all reservations are responsibility of each person. Don't forget your towed.

Those dates should work for us as well. Unfortunetly pretty booked up until then.

But would be down to meet up and swap some lies anytime as well.
