Mike as far as I know we are still planning on the tours. The forecast is predicting rain in the morning, so start time could potentially be variable. But I am sure that there will be plenty of opportunities to view trailers. It is a very good natured crew in attendance. Someone said they were asked by a non-Escape camper if all Escape folks are this friendly.

Yep, tours are planned for 1-3:00, preceded at 10 with the lug nuts contest and followed by adult beverages at 4 and potluck at 5:00.

Yeti?

At 6:30 AM today a large man or a
Small yeti was seen walking towards the shower house singing Gordon Lightfoot's
Early Morning Rain. Several minutes later he was again spotted walking down the main road into the campground. At that time he was singing a modified version of an old
Kenny Rogers classic that he did not know the words to, as it sounded like he was singing "You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel" and muttering something about
"I'll tighten your lugs nuts all right."

Further confirmation of our decision to limit the extent of our exploring to between the Pacific Ocean and the base of the front range!
Is it something in what is brewed with water from watersheds that flow east?

A wheel is probably not the only thing loose on that Yeti.

Thor and Leon using the latest refill system. Since it was an Escape the Gerry cans had to come from Canadian Tire.

Prairie Schooner arrived after 2,200 miles in three days. The first day CPAHarley was incoherent, kept mumbling something about "one more exit". RedDog and Noelia are getting an earful about the modification he is working during the rally.

Great job!

Just returned home from our maiden camping and rally weekend in Scott County Park, Iowa.

First of all, a huge thank you and pat on the back to Paul, his wife, and his team for putting on a wonderful action-packed rally weekend! He gracefully and expertly managed several challenges, including an entire change of venue due to flooding on the Mississippi.

The cold, damp, and a little rain were other small annoyances to contend with, but given the company and Camaraderie of the Escapees,, this was really of no consequence .

I'm fortunate to have met some very lovely people, including some of the more infamous frequent forum posters.

Thanks again for a lovely weekend! Let's do more of these!
