Mississippi River Rally

Paul, sounds like you have it goin on. That's a nice camp ground for sure. The migration of white Pelicans in this part of the country is just starting so maybe a good chance to see some as well as some egrets and great blue herons for sure.
Dave

Thanks for the reminder, bring binoculars. Not only for the birds but to watch the tows go through the locks across the river. I think there would also be Bald Eagles on this stretch of the river along with the species Dave mentioned.

Eric, did you know that there is an Official Beer of Escape Trailers? I know you are a beer connoisseur, so I thought I would ask you. Well, that beer will be one of the door prizes featured at the Mississippi River Rendezvous. You have to register to win.

Thank you so much, everyone! I have to mention that one of the things that drew us to Escape was the friendliness of the owner community and how much you all seem to enjoy your trailers. I look forward to seeing meeting you on Saturday from 1-3.

No I didn't and for a minute I was afraid it was going to be one of my various homebrews and that I would have to bring enough for everybody! Whew!

Amanda,
You will find that every Escape owner is thrilled to show off their unit, whether or not it is during the designated hours. Take a look at all sizes. You may see options or accessories that you had not thought about.
Beware that the Escape Trailer Industries website (as distinguished from this forum) shows the 17s to be sold out for 2016, and very few dates left for 19s. If you can arrange to see Iowa Dave's before the rally, that might be a good idea, unless waiting until 2017 is ok.
Good luck, and of course, you're welcome to come see our 21.
Bill

Jever Pilsener, but I have to disappoint; cannot find that beer in this country...

Does any one need a bit of HyperVent?

Lindy and I put Hypervent under the mattress and the cushions on our trailer. We have a bit left -- probably enough for a couple of cushions. I hate to throw it out, so If anyone could use it, I would be happy to stuff it into the back of the Highlander next week and bring it to Fisherman's Corner.

PS: Not sure if we are doing a beer exchange, but I will bring a 6 pack of assorted local brews.

I have corresponded with Tammy and Reace about attending this years event. Unfortunately the coming rally is just at some critical decision times for some upcoming changes at Escape. They simply need to be around meeting with and finalizing things that are a part of this process.

They are however interested in next years event.

In recognition of their contributions, their favorite beer will be one of the door prizes. It turns out that Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy is a favorite. One or more lucky camper will be able to taste the local brew that tops their list
