This weekend, July 20th-22nd is our Turkey Run Trip Weekender. We are looking forward to it although I have not made much progress on our 64 Globetrotter rebuild, so it’s still more like a Aluminum tent but it’s camping worthy as long as you don’t need water or a kitchen. I at least have the Gaucho rebuilt and installed so we don’t have to sleep on the floor.
So Far I have attending and their spots. If I missed you let me know your coming so we can plan our club supplied Pitch-in food needs accordingly.
As usual our weekenders are laid back chances to hang out with fellow Airstreamers.
With the help of Sandy and Ken Langell (most excellent event planners as evidenced by rallies they have hosted such as our very successful Wisconsin Dells rally this year) we have a few suggested activities this weekend.
Arrival and setup
Evening Campfire – We will pick the most central spot and enjoy good company around the camp fire. If you have some firewood please bring it. (DNA approved firewood only please!)
Morning – Hiking – Turkey Run has the best Hiking Trails in the state and they are mostly shaded but since its going to be hot I suggest getting a hike in early in the morning. If Hiking is not your thing they have a really nice nature center to check out.
Noon – Lunch at “Up the Creek Boat-ique” – Because we don’t have a kitchen we are eating out. Feel free to join us if you like or do your own thing.
3:00pm – 4:00pm Lusk House Visit
The Lusk house is not open very often, this is a chance to see inside it.
Lusk Open House, Turkey Run State Park
Hike out or drive to Lusk Home. Built in 1841, this house tells the story of Turkey Run’s first stewards. Stop by anytime during the open house to hear about the Lusk story.
5:30PM – Pitch-in Dinner – Dog Days of Summer
The theme for this pitch-in is Dog Days of Summer
The club will supply Hot Dogs, Buns, Mustard and Ketchup.
Feel free to bring your fave toppings for dogs for example Chili, onions etc or a side or desert.
7:30 PM – 9 PM – A special event at the Park, will be well worth attending as one of the story tellers is a friend of Ken Langell and an excellent story teller!
STORYTELLING!!!! TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE
Campers and lodgers use your sleuthing skills to determine the lie during “Two Truths and a Lie” by listening carefully to the stories, asking insightful questions and using your intuition. Once the liar has been revealed, choose to share your own park adventure in small groups. Story telling will begin at 7:30pm at the Turkey Run State Park amphitheater. Featured storyteller will be: Lou Ann Homan, Bob Sander, and David Matlack.
Funding for this program is provided by the Indiana Arts Commission, The National Endowment for the Arts, the Indiana State Parks, and Storytelling Arts of Indiana.
