This is for all you bastards that are at Gordon's right now. I have put close to $2,000 into my car lately in replacing the intake manifold and water pump, tune up, and servicing the transmission. they said there was nothing wrong with the transmission but is still shifting between high gear and the next gear down when it is running like 65 or 70 miles an hour. It makes me nervous to drive that far. Anyway here is one for you guys my custom 200A kero with the cigar and some bourbon. Wish I was there.

I'm home already Moses, I came home a day early to please the wife since I had to work last Saturday and Sunday. You were missed by a lot of people man. Sorry to hear about your car.

I'm on my way finally. Stopping in shipshewana for white gas. Can't go without fuel.


A little late now but how much was the White Gas in Shipshewana Rob? I have camped there in the past and didn't realize they had their own pump for it. Wouldn't mind taking a can along next time I head up that way to restock up.

Hey Zack. White gas is $4.99 gal at the pump in shipshewana. I usually buy 10 gallons on the way up. Usually somebody buys what I don't use.

Sorry to hear that Moses. Had I known beforehand, I would've offered you a ride there and back.

Rob, did you get white gas at the BP on US 20? I filled my can there on the way in on Friday and paid $6 a gallon. They also sell it at the marathon across from the Blue Gate restaurant.

Phil. I get mine from the marathon across from the blue gate. I usually buy 10-15 gallons at a time, so that dollar per gallon is a huge savings. It's good to know that the new BP has it too. I work across the street form there at Jayco. That would save some time if I only wanted a gallon or two.

Yes the station on SR 20 is a little more expensive than the station across from Blue Gate.

Thanks Rob, I will have to take a day trip up that way sometime and refill a couple 5 gallon cans. Much better than paying $8/gal for the crown fuel at Wally world.

Thanks for the info on the white gas stations at Shipshe. I was going to ask some of you when I was at Gordons and totally forgot.

Once again it was a good time this year. I hung out with people that I know already and met some people that I didn't know before. Lots of good people with something in common with one another. There were many cool displays as well. Here are some of the things that I had at my campsite. I sold a few and bought a few. Some trading as well. I still don't belive it, but I won the raffle.

I didn't want to find a place to park with the trailer downtown, otherwise I usually stop at the marathon. I'm surprised that there is that much price difference between them, when they're so close.

I agree on the parking situation, sometimes it's tough to get a PU in there. I only know about the price difference because on one trip the pump was down at the Marathon station so I had to fill my cans at the BP.

Had I known Andy I would have stopped and picked some up for you on the way through. Make sure you don't forget your can on your next trip to White Pigeon.

Yes Rob that raffle lantern is very cool, I love Jerry's decal on it and I just kinda assumed Andy may have been behind the paint job. Your Leacock bracket lamp on the tree caught my eye Friday night as I have one too.

I didn't get a chance to thank Roland personally so I want to thank him publicly for providing everyone at the Campout with a CQ/QL fuel cap wrench. What a cool thing to do! Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_0294.jpg, Views: 181, Size: 117.57 KB

Thanks guys. The raffle caught me off guard. I always donate to the pot, but I've never won anything before. Seeing that it had Jerry's place on the decal, I asked jerry if he would sign it for me. He had a sharpie in his hand before I could even finish tbe question. After he signed it he asked Pat to do the same. They're such good people. Greg, we ran that wall lamp in the tree both nights. It was the first time that we had run it. It did really well. That marathon is a little cramped at times. I didn't know that BP sold white gas as well. That's a new gas station.

Yes thanks for coming up to me and introducing yourself Roland, as well as making up all of those wrenches to give away to everyone. I think I am going to use that a lot more than I can imagine this winter.

You are most welcome fellas.  It was a fun project.  I never thought they would go over as well as they did.

Some might find that they are a bit tight, so it will be necessary to run a file over the flats.  The 3D printer is new to me so I'm just learning with it.  It seems that the size varies a bit batch to batch.

I only bought two lanterns at the gathering and it fits like a glove on this one. Thanks man Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_0299.jpg, Views: 177, Size: 133.76 KB

Another successful gathering is now in the history book.  According to Terry Marsh's count, we had 83 folks attend - yet another record.  Lots of good friends and interesting GPAs.  The next Great Lakes gathering will be at Jerry's Camping Center in March.  See you there.

Well, to my dismay, I forgot to grab a wrench on the way out.

I was so distracted, contemplating the significance of the "no letter" atrocity.

I'm thinking of trying the phrase ... 242 1st edition.  Or perhaps "pre-A".

NL has became a forbidden reference at the GL gatherings. 242 Junior is acceptable and I just happened to score one with a Fred reproduction globe. Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_0336.jpg, Views: 170, Size: 100.20 KB

Is that the Jerry's Camping Center near Madison, WI?

I think I have the Mrs. talked into the 6 hour drive.

Anyone know what the lantern of choice will be?  I hope it's not the 220, I may have to rent a trailer to haul all those.  lol.

A kerosene light-up would be interesting.  You don't get to see as many of those.

That is Jerry's Camping Center in Madison.  We have had a discussion about having a 319 light up as a logical follow up to the Arc light-up last year.  That doesn't mean that if you don't have one you are out of luck, it just means that we will be trying to get as many 319s going at one time as we can.  Other lanterns will be lit, they just won't be on the tables with the 319s.

Hey Moses, sorry to hear about your car trouble. I was there just for Saturday afternoon, would have been nice to see you.  Tell you what though, you buy an old Cop Car that is pretty much toasted, you might have a few issues. "Blues-Brothers" ring a bell?  Anyway, I hope I see you next year! ... I heard they didn't run the "Hay-Ride" this year, but we had a pretty good time just hanging out.  I left at about 7:00 PM Saturday.  Sourgas John and I were thinking about another informal get-together in Battle Creek this fall. Probably the same place,. the Bridge Park. Spread the word if that sounds good. If there is enough interest, I might be able to reserve the pavillion. But, I have to know...

Todd. I would be interested in another gathering if one were being planned. Please keep us posted. I'm not quite ready to put the tent away just yet. They did have the hayride Saturday night. 2 hay wagons on the old john deere. It was a good time.

How about Halloween.. Oct. 31st.. That would be a Wednesday,  (funny name, right?)

Might be better for most folks, Same place, Historic Bridge Park in Battle Creek.  If weekend is better,  speak up, we can adjust the date.
