Has anyone besides me been watching the weather?
Specifically the wind?
Rain here and there I can take, but the wind is supposed to be 15mph on Thursday and 19 mph on Sunday.
How much wind is too much wind when pulling a small trailer???

I don't know what you are pulling or where you are coming from. But we do have people coming from all over to this gathering. Most are pulling teardrops, a few have cargos. We have never had much trouble driving in 20MPH winds. Cross winds you will notice but you just need to keep a hand on the wheel. Lots of wind plays havoc with our shelters sometimes but we can deal with that.

Are you interested in joining us, we would be happy to have you! :beer:

Steve, It's me Linda with the Coyote camper. I met you last fall. My camper is a 16ft with stabilizer bars and an anti sway bar. I've never driven in the wind and I never drive the tollroads.
I am coming from Crystal Lake, you are in Bartlett, if I remember correctly.
From here to there there is a lot of flat open road!
You think I'll be ok?
Linda
(I don't know what happened to the avitar of my camper)

Hi Linda, I remember you, I just did not recognize your username. The Avitar is up now. I'm sure you will be fine. Doug pulls his cargo trailer with no stabilizer and has no trouble. If you are on the side roads you should be fine. Just take it easy till you get comfortable. See ya soon!

Thanks Steve. I will be super careful, and slow!

I just heard from Vic. He is not coming. He hurt his eye and his ears are bothering him so he is staying home.
Boo Hoo. I was hoping for some muskies from him as he was supposed to come today and he is such a great fisherman!
See you all Thursday!!!

Hi Linda,
My husband and I are coming from Woodstock pulling our homebuilt teardrop. We camped there 2 weeks ago for a trial run. It was windy when we drove out and we had no problems. We stayed on the paved back roads and encountered very little traffic. Check mapquest or google maps for some suggested routes. I think you can filter your search to miss heavier traveled roads.

Thanks Liz.
Yes, I always take the back roads!
Even when it's not windy.
