Lake Rathbun 2024
« on: January 08, 2024, 10:16:50 AM »
Betty is making reservations for our camping adventures this summer. Is Lake Rathbun happening this year and any thoughts on when? We had such a great time last year and want to do it again.

Marina doesn't open till April 1st, but we can plan for it now.    I don't have anything set in stone for may/June timeframe yet.

At this time, it looks like Rathbun Lake is about 2 feet higher than it was last year when we were there

we are just the worst "road trippers" even the drive to Rathbun can be a challenge.
last year on the way home we stopped at this quaint little campground in mason city, nice place, right in the city, i got a 80' drive through spot that we fit in without having to unhook anything. so this year i booked that spot Tuesday night and Sunday night. $21 a night.

Long range forecast looks good as well.    Finalizing CVZ for the trip now and getting ready to service truck.    Looking forward to it.

I was checking everything out on the truck giving it a good once over, I noticed that the air cleaner usage indicator was at 65% used. I thought that was odd seeing as I put it in new last year, then it dawned on me.

Looks like the work of mouseketeers, and not the good ones.    Hopefully the engine didn't inject too much of that funk
