You know how it works, best laid plans of mice and men... go out and start to visit. Walk one site down and talk for 20-30 minutes.. five-six hours later you've only moved 10 sites!
Ain't that the truth. At Bluebonnet we had more than a dozen Escapes in attendance, and I thought it was going to be easy to meet every owner. Ha! Between talking to strangers who walked up, as well as those we talked with while showing the trailer or at the pot lucks/pancake breakfasts, we ran out of time. We benefited by being close to Reace and Tammy's site, but there seemed to be a never ending flow of people wanting to tour the trailer. We did meet Ranger Duke and Beverlee (just wonderful people) and got to see Steve and Cynthia from Boerne again (who had showed us their 19 when we were wannabes), but I wish we'd been able to meet them all.

Next time I'm going to give myself an 'inner clock' 10 minute rule, at least for the first meeting. Hopefully I can get to meet more folks that way. Once you get my blabbermouth started, it's hard to stop.

I found the same thing too Donna. I got some great visits in with a few people, but there was just no way to get around to spending much time with everyone I would have liked to.

Hey, at least you got more than your fill of me, travelling together on the wine tour.

That is why I ride around on a bicycle, twice the number of people in 1/2 the time, that is until someone offers me a beer, then my bike sits for awhile.

My thought is that the Friday night event might be better as an outdoor standup event on the patio. Maybe more opportunity to move around and mingle.

Glad the food tables were separated this year. It seemed to reduce the wait time for those last to be called.

Next year, those that don't bother to tell ETI they're attending should get to eat last

Absolutely. Something like 13 extra trailers, which equates to at least 26 more people, showed up without registering with Escape. Remember last year Tammy trying to pawn off sandwiches for the ride home for those leaving on Sunday. This year they ran out. I did see a few people with very loaded plates too.

Donna - I only saw you once - at a distance during the potluck. We had plans to visit some places around Osoyoos but never made it out of the park because we were too busy socializing. Glad you had fun!
I was also happy to meet Glenn and his lovely wife Leslie after a couple of years chuckling at his wry sense of humour.
Here's to next year's Rally! ��
Jim- I was one of the last people through and had one cracker, a melon ball and a brownie. I made up for it Saturday night at the potluck though. ��

That's unfortunate to hear. These things work best when everyone is courteous, and not registering then showing up for the food is definitely not courteous.

Seems we had the opposite problem at the Bluebonnet Rally. Wow, the leftovers!

To be clear, this was the Friday night meal that Escape provided. The Saturday potluck had lots of great food. Leftovers too, 'cept Lisa's Mac' n Cheese got devoured.

Any other rallys in the west coming up this year? I missed most due to my trip to Guatemala. Next year this one is definitely on my list
