Hi: fudge_brownie... It could end up being very deer breaking into a Correctional Institute!!! Especially when most want to break out.
Have a great time at the rally. Alf

And here I was looking forward to a pack of Australian Kelpies herding Iowa Dave around the campground when they smelled all that sheep wool all over him.

Because of family commitments we will not be able to make the rally. We were hoping to see some Escapes first hand to get an idea of what model we hope to get in the future. Looks to be a great time of the year to meet up and maybe see everyone at another time and place.

You'll still be able to see all the models -you'll just have to travel our beautiful state a bit and visit them!

reddog,

Please inform on the bugs at Thomson. I'm thinking of bringing a screen tent, but if bugs aren't much of an issue I won't. What's been your experience so far?

By the way.....I have a red dog....big red dog...golden retriever, but more mahogany colored.

Let's try this
Hey Red Dog, you got your ears on? over,
What's the Bug situation in the campground?
We're trying to decide whether we need the screen rooms at the campground or not.
Your input, if accurate will be rewarded.
Two Red Dogs in one camp, imagine that.

Bring screen tent. We are currently in site 100 and we have mosquitos, gnats, and flies with teeth. It may be better if you are located away from the green belt
