Dave, unfortunately Mike, Dani nor The Bearded Charmer showed up while we were there - or I certainly would have gotten Dani's signed autograph for you. The funniest part for me was that the new building had more space given over the American Pickers T-shirts, hats, and other souvenirs than to actual antiques. My favorite was seeing the Indian motorcycle that they literally dug out of a backyard.

American Pickers

We were there one day last summer. You are right, the T shirt sales no doubt exceed anything else sold there. I watch the show from time to time, it's interesting to me that at times I've seen stuff hanging in barns on the show that have "hot" market value that I am aware of that the puckers do not show any interest in(during the show). As we all know, reality shows are largely scripted so for me, they are entertainment but only about 5% believable at best. Reality for me is what I make of my life and the interaction I have with people and nature around me. Thanks
Dave

We, too, were in attendance for the rally and had a really great time meeting everyone and seeing so many Escapes gathered in one place! I think we may have some more pics to share but here is one for now. This is a view from our campsite to the river.

And--you all didn't eat enough cookies--we had too many leftovers!

I ate my share of the Cookies. It was a pleasure meeting you both, and the cookies set a new standard for trailer visitation.

At Niagara Falls I thought my daughter had set the standard with her home made Ohio state peanut butter Buckeyes but the Wisconsin and Michigan folks kept choking on them. Must have had an allergy.

Meat cookies are good with me, if there are any other exotic beef or pork products you'd like, let me know. Was up to the locker at Protovin last month. Got some cinnamon bacon but passed on the jaternice. You can get Rocky Mountain Oysters in 10 lb boxes. Who said testicle festival?
