    Well although I may not be driving my van. I will be in there... I wanted to bring my glovebox door for some artistry if possible? Looking forward to meeting you.

    Airport and Hotel ideas?

    I'm in. I hope it's with my van. So, it's time to get her back on the road and road worthy for such a trip. We'll be caravanning from Sacaramento down to Albert Lea. I'll be driving up 6 hours just to join Mark and Freaky Tiki on the Caravan. If my van isn't ready by chance because it's not now, I will hopefully still join as a co-driver. This will be my first time attending, although not my first time actually buying entrance passes in hopes of going. Paid my entrance this year once again.

    Questions for you attendees. For now, I plan on taking the Wife and daughter via plane ride. What airport are people arriving to? I'd be picking them up in the van. I see the Albert Lea Muni Airport-Ael but don't see it as an option when booking flights. I'm trying to book flights and maybe a room at a hotel nearby. Although for now I plan on camping out. But, can be our family base for showers, etc.

    What airport, what hotels? How are you guys going to do it? Also, is there a campsite area in mind already?

    If you do not take your van make arrangments to be someone's guest. I Just showed up for the last one in CT & they would not let me simple pay admission to go in. I was fortunite a club member came by - as I recall I saw the window decal & they let me team up to get in.

    Correct. You cannot get in on foot, or with a vehicle other than a van. That said, they have been a tinge lenient with our club over the years. We've arguably been the largest recruiter of new people to the community that they work with us a little.
