    What are the odds he would allow us back at night for some light painting? :-) I'd be up for camping at Elk Island and popping over for some night photography!

    There's SO much to see and shoot there (even if you aren't a car buff). I got some nice shots of flowers, butterflies, and the abandoned farm across the way. I definitely would have gotten more out of it had I been on time and followed the group to the antique car section straight away.

    Thanks for organizing! Looking forward to future meet ups.

    July 20, 2013

  • Emilia

    With this being my first meet up, do we all meet at the entrance or just head in as we arrive and start wandering?

    July 19, 2013

    car poling is a good idea and chipping in for the gas is a must...especially at the prices we are paying now...I am in Westmont area and can take 4 extra in my car....so let me know if your wanting to ride

    3 · July 9, 2013

    • Deb D.

      July 9, 2013

  • Excalibur/Matt

    If people need a ride I can take up to three additional people with me. Message me through the board to arrange carpooling. All I ask is some cash for the gas.
