    Question

    I made my reservation as soon as it was possible last year, but still have not been asked for a deposit. Has anyone put down a deposit yet? I'd hate to lose my spot.

    I'll be there

    Just finished sorting my arrangements to come over to Branson. Reservation made at the campsite - I'm in the North Lodge, and all flights booked. I'll be spending a couple of days in Atlanta then flying up to Springfield on the morning of the 7th. Any chance anyone will be driving through Springfield on the way to Branson?
    Really looking forward to this event and meeting up with people again.

    Hi Steve, You sent in your deposit and know where your staying? It's been almost a year now that I made my reservation and I haven't heard a thing. I will have to try and give LJ a call after work.

    Hey, [MENTION=1]smiley[/MENTION], can you edit your first post and put the campground reservation info there? That way new people don't have to search through this thread for it.

    Nevermind, I put it in my post on the first page

    What is the nearest airport to the campground? I read it back in one of the post through this thread...50 miles away I think? Which airport is that? It's kind of a long thread to search back right now. Would be flying from LAX airport. So far would only be able to leave on the 8th after work...

    Alright guys , it's official! I'll be joining the celebration for the 20th anniversary! Booked my flight and lodge room. Will be there on June 8th with my wife and daughter. My flight arrives at 9pm at the Springfield-Branson airport so will be arriving at camp around 10pm. Just need to look up car rentals to get to and from airport. I originally looked up flights at cheapoair.com but after looking at prices it wasn't looking realistic. My friend directed me to Kayak and was a whole lot better.

    Thumbs up Awesome!

    This is great. It is really starting to come together. I will be driving in from NY and the wife and kids will be flying in. I have been driving the van as much as possible and so far so good. No real issues to speak of ATM. Just going to clean up as much of the wiring I can before the trip. Are we still doing the convoy from the North east? Keep me posted on the plan where and when to meet Hope we can get a good amount together. Looking forward to this.

    I just realized the campground is a mile from Silver Dollar City. If y'all need something to do one day, it's a neat detour.

    I haven't been there since I was 8 or 10. I may have to swing by and get a funnel cake.

    Cool

    Right Now I am down healing up from my ankle fusion surgery...
    Going into my fourth month of healing.
    The time is getting close to start working on my Early to get it ready for the trip to Branson.
    if I don't heal up fast enough.We might have to take an alternative vehicle.(one the wife can drive)
    Or FART...Fly And RenT.
    Right now if it does come down to this .We are hoping "Big Red" our 89 GMC will be ready to make the trip.
    Mary has now a Mazda 6.Bringing a car to a van event would suck big time
    Things are still up in the air
    I have been behaving my self by staying completely off of my left foot.Which is now in a cast...
    A friend of mine gave me a nice wheel chair.Which I have put to good use.Glad we bought a ranch style house.
    My family has stepped up helping me stay off of my foot by picking my granddaughter up from school.This was my daily job
    I hope to find out more this week when I return to the doctors
    Its a "van thing". A life style you have to live to understand!!!!

    Rest up and heal up Joe. Keep us posted. I hope you get a good report from the Doc (fingers crossed).
