What a great story!! If I had known they would do that much 
restoration/rebuild, I think I would have driven to Ohio (from CA) and 
not gotten so wrapped up in doing it myself. And I am sure they did a 
lot better job than I have done, since they keep what they were doing. 
Wow. Thanks a lot for posting that.

Greetings Tom!

I have attended every International since 1998, other than last year's
International in Vermont.  There have been several with more than one
parking area - - Dayton, Ohio was one that immediately comes to mind.  It
has been my experience that even with multiple parking areas, groups that
arrive together with pre-arranged Caravan parking times have been parked
together.  With the shuttle bus system that the WBCCI runs, multiple parking
areas really isn't a tremendous issue.  I have made use of the shuttle buses
at most of the Internationals as it greatly simplifies parking worries.

Subject: [VAL] Re: Lansing

I can't go to Lansing, but Google's push news alert sent me this from the 
Lansing State Journal:

HL:  Hordes of caravaners will descend on Lansing

A heads up for local business owners: Stock up for June when 1,700 silver 
"Airstream" RVs are expected to roll into Lansing.
They're part of the Wally Byam Caravan Club, which chose Lansing as the site 
of its 2004 rally. 
Trailers are expected to begin arriving as early as June 7, even though the 
10-day event runs June 25 through July 4.
During the event, trailers will park at Capital City Airport, Marshall Street 
Armory and the Lansing Center. 
With an expected $5 million in economic impact, businesses such as service 
stations, beauty shops, grocery stores, bakeries, laundromats and ice cream 
stores should be prepared for lots of extra business.
Restaurant owners in particular, beware. 
Organizers say 70 percent of all participants' meals are eaten outside the 
trailers, and they've never held the rally in an area where some restaurants 
didn't run out of food.

Have fun there!  It sounds like you should bring food!  And one other 
suggestion I'd add--never speak ill of Spartans!

Subject: Re: [VAL] Re: Lansing

Heard things like that when the international came to Ames a decade or
so ago. Heard rumors of disgruntled auto dealers stuck with extra
"towing rated" vehicles that didn't sell. Probably most weren't rated
right for serious towing anyway. Anyway the forecast Airstream inspired
business didn't rise to the expectations.

The chambers of commerce making these economic forecasts presume that
the caravanner arrives exhausted, with worn out tires, worn out vehicle,
with the closet and larder depleted, and with nothing to do but visit
the local emporia and tourist attractions. The chamber forgets that the
caravanner is experienced, expects gouging at such large gatherings, is
capable of being on the road for months at a time, plans ahead, buys
ahead, and the caravan activities will take up 125% of the available
waking time. Its not practical to go to all the International activities
AND to wait in lines for restaurant seats. Its not practical to go to
all the International activities the way I've heard it. It is practical
to grab a snack in the trailer or at a food stand on the International
site.

Perhaps one could let the naive chamber of commerce know that there's
not 1700 families expecting to buy 1700 new cars, 17,000 meals, 4200
changes of clothes, and 13,600 new tires. Most will have prepared before
starting the trip to be able to make the round trip from home to
International without vehicle or wardrobe attention, and with only
occasional grocery stops. It isn't as if Lansing is the only place on
their travels with groceries, tow vehicles, tires, oil changes,
clothing, and restaurants available.

Good post.  One thing the city of Lansing might need to do though is make
sure that their pubic utilities are in good working order though due to lots
of posts over the last year about holding tanks, etc. ;)

I called the Centramatic Co. and talked with Jerry who had me measure
the bolt circle and how many studs on the wheel. He then took my order
because there was no dealer near me. He is sending me a set for the 57
single axle Overlander for $99 + UPS. He also said if I was not
satisfied with the balancers I could send them back within 30 days. If
they work as well as the staff of Centramatic things will be great. Will
keep you posted with the results. However, if they work as well as Paul
reports I don't think I will be disappointed with them!

Jason,

Below the solid line you can read what Scott posted to this list a few days
ago regarding Vintage Airstream rendezvous meeting at the Mega Mall located
on US 27 Business South (coming from I-69 you would take Exit 87) south of
I-69.  You can do a search on Google to locate the Mega Mall there in
Lansing and you will see that it's not very far south of I-69.

There is an Email address you can write to at the bottom of Scott's post for
more information, fellow's name is Bob Herman.  If you do plan to write Bob
Herman and find out things others need to know or that you think they might
like to know please send a post to the group here.  Thanks in advance from
me.

Here's the scoop on the rendevious for International. It should also be in
the next issue of the VA. - Scott
- -----------
LANSING VINTAGE PARADE AND PARKING INFORMATION
Vintage members who wish to park together at the Vintage site at the
International Rally at Lansing will rendezvous at the Mega Mall (a former
outlet mall) located at the intersection of exit 87 off I-69 and Business
27. Go south on Business 27 and turn east or left into the mall.
Arrangements have been made for us to dry camp the night of Friday, June
25th at the Mega Mall so that we can prepare for our parade into the Vintage
Rally site on Saturday, June 26th.

There may be a nominal parking fee for this night. If so, Bob Herman will
collect this fee at the mall. Vintage members who cannot join us on the 25th
but who wish to parade in and be located in the Vintage section at
International must be at the Mega Mall by l2:00 noon on Saturday, June 26th.
Our parade is scheduled to enter the rally site at 2:00 p.m.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING RALLY SITE PARKING. The order in which you
are parked at the pre-rally site
will establish the order of the parade lineup and the order of the parking
for the International site. Therefore, if you wish to park with a particular
member, you must arrive at the Mega Mall with that member, or notify Bob
Herman on your arrival who you are expecting so that a vacant space can be
left in the parade lineup for that member. Once the parade lineup is
established at the Mega Mall, this will be the order for the parking at the
International Site. In order to assure adequate parking at the Mega Mall
and at the Lansing site, I need to know whether you plan to arrive on
Friday, June the 25th or by l2:00 noon on Saturday, June 26th. You may email
me at: bobbonherm8556@xxxxxxxxxx.com , or send a note or card to me at  2092
Culbreath Rd, C12, Brooksville, Fl. 34602. We will have about a six hour
Habitat for Humanity work date on Sunday, June 27th. Ladies are welcome.  We
will have a sign-up for this Habitat Day at the mall and also after we enter
the rally site.  Bob Herman, 1st VP

Hi Kevin,

See?  I learn something every day! ;)  Thanks for the posting this
information.  I didn't know about any shuttle buses before now either.

I'm still at a loss to know *where* people in WBCCI will be finally parked.
Seems the Mega Mall is just a get-together site to roll into the Rally
"from".  I'm sure the Mega Mall won't be used for more than that.

There has been mention of another group area at the airport in Lansing, the
biggest one of course.  Does this mean that people will be parking at the
airport for the duration of this particular rally?  One place I wouldn't
want to be personally is at the airport for all those days in the summer
time.

Maybe we need to go high up in the food chain to get more particulars about
*exactly* where people will be parked for the duration of the rally.  Maybe?

According to an earlier post one of the locations is the Capitol City
Airport. That you will find at 42 46.839N 084 35.257W. The other locations
are the Lansing Center at 42 44.015N 084 32.937W and the Marshall Street
Armory which I have not yet found.
We plan to set an Idaho Unit Geocache while we are there. Will be fun.
See you there.

Daisy, I have the locations. I think I got them from Bob Herman, but don't
quote me as my memory has wandered off somewhere...

The parking is in 3 seperate areas:
    Capital City Airport
    Marshall Street Armory
    Lansing Center

In the past, parking is often in at least two areas...as handicapped parking
is normally located at the meeting halls.

Dayton in '99 they parked people all over the place. I think that there were
parking areas scattered all over the college campus and then another major
parking area at the Airforce Museum.

Here you go, Charlie.

GPS Coordinates for Marshall Street Armory, Lansing, MI
                                 N42:44.31 W84:31.56

The location is on the East side of the 500 block of Marshall Street,
Lansing, MI, South of E Saginaw Street and North of Horton Street.

These coordinates are across the street from the Marshall Street Armory
which closed in 1989.  This should get you with about 30 feet or less.  I
say that because these numbers are for the West side of Marshall Street.
Magellan software has "Marshall" listed as an AVENUE rather than STREET
which is correct.  I'll have to give them a call (Magellan).

Unless you were a resident of the city of Lansing or had been to a dance or
mineral show there, or you were a Guardsman you would have a very difficult
time tracing down this address.  I'm none of the above but I have my ways.

Any members here homesick for a Catholic High School in Lansing, Michigan? ;)

Fond memories I'm sure.  The Marshall Street Armory is located directly across
the street from a really big Catholic High School.  So when you don't feel
like going to one of the rally meetings you could "go to school" and visit -
school should be out unless there are still some detainees from Detention

Subject: [VAL] Distances bewteen 3 locations - Lansing, Michigan

I was playing around with the GPS software and maps and did some virtual

sort of information.

locations for the upcoming International Rally being held in Lansing,
Michigan.

    To:  Marshall Street Armory 500 Marshall Street - 5.48 miles
    To:  Lansing Center 333 E Michigan Avenue - 5.41 miles


From:  Lansing Center

    To: Marshall Street Armory 500 Marshall Avenue - 1.68 miles
    To: Capitol City Airport - 5.41 miles

Subject: [VAL] ARMORY [Lansing] - location

Finally, I have found a detailed description of exactly where the Marshall
Street Armory is located in Lansing, Michigan.

Here it is:

ARMORY [Lansing] (From E. Saginaw & Marshall St.) - South on Marshall to the
Armory approx. 1 block on the left. Left into the drive. Field on west side of
Armory.

With any mapping program or even Mapquest or Yahoo Maps you should be able to
type in the intersection location of "E Saginaw & Marshall Street" and
download a free map.

Does anyone (Daisy?) need the GPS coordinates from this intersection?  Ask,
you will receive. ;)
